Inferno

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.” — William Shakespeare

“I choose to see the beauty. But beauty is a lure. We’re trapped, Teddy. Lived our whole lives inside this garden, marveling at its beauty, not realizing there’s an order to it, a purpose. And the purpose is to keep us in. The beautiful trap is inside of us because it is us.” — Dolores, “WestWorld” series

“Men are not in hell because God is angry with them; they are in wrath and darkness because they have done to the Light, which infinitely flows forth from God, as that man does to the light of the sun, who puts out his own eyes.” — William Law

“The cognizances that [appear as] the pleasant realms, the miserable realms, and the deaths, transitions, and births [in those realms] are the various forms of existence in saṃsāra, which arise from the appropriation of the [karmic] seeds [of transcendental consciousness (ālayavijñāna)] that are the latent tendencies of the links of existence.” — Vasubandhu
