Well as payback here is another(though partial) quote from the Tibetan Book of the Dead(Liberation through Hearing) the Introduction to awareness section, on Appearences.....
All things that appear are manifestations of mind.
The surrounding environment which appears to be inanimate that too is mind.
The sentinent life-forms which appear as the six classes of beings, they too are mind.
The joys of both the gods and humans of the higher existences which appear, they too are mind.
The sorrows of the three lower existences which appear, they too are mind.
The five poisons, representing the dissonant mental states of ignorance, which appear, they too are mind.
The awareness, that is self-originating pristine cognition which appears, it too is mind.
In these dualistic thoughts lie diseases and "obstructive forces"
When illnesss afflicts one,
The illness lies in the very thought of it,
When harm befalls one,
The harm lies in the very thought of it;
When one dies,
The death lies in the very thought of it;
When one is reborn,
The rebirth lies in the very thought of it;
Pleeasure, pain or others lie in dualistic thoughts,
Yet the mind is empty of any reality.
When one has eliminated the root of dualistic thoughts,
Neither disease nor harm
From "obstructive forces" will befall one.
So back at ya big guy!!
Really jewels for contemplation!! Big guy? Who is that?
"Intellectual understanding is like a patch,
It will fall off.
Spiritual experiences are like mist", Dudjom Rinpoche.
"Unless the sun of devotion shines
On the snow peak of the teacher's four kayas,
The stream of his blessings will never flow.
So earnestly arouse devotion in your mind." Zurchungpa.
