“To live in the way of the Gestalt:

1. Live now. Concern yourself with the present before the past or the future.

2. Live here. Deal with what is present rather than with what is absent.

3. Stop imagining. Experience the real.

4. Stop unnecessary thinking. Rather, taste and see.

5. Express rather than manipulate, explain, justify, or judge.

6. Give in to unpleasantness and pain just as to pleasure. Do not restrict your awareness.

7. Accept no "should" or "must" other than your own. Adore no idol.

8. Take full responsibility for your actions, feelings, and thoughts.

9. Accept being as you are.”

Claudio Naranjo

"It has been said: The whole is more than the sum of its parts. It is more correct to say that the whole is something else than the sum of its parts, because summing is a meaningless procedure, whereas the whole-part relationship is meaningful."

“The work of art still has something in common with enchantment: it posits its own, self-enclosed area, which is withdrawn from the context of profane existence, and in which special laws apply. Just as in the ceremony the magician first of all marked out the limits of the area where the sacred powers were to come into play, so every work of art describes its own circumference which closes it off from actuality.” ― Adorno, Theodor W., Dialectic of Enlightenment
