“The moment when you really experience that you have created yourself being whatever way you are, at that same moment you will never have to be that way again.”

“Consider that all accomplishment is constituted by a series of resolved breakdowns.”

-Werner Erhard

The support of the Werner Erhard Foundation made possible groundbreaking conversations between leaders, scholars and officials from virtually all parts of the world in the fields of human achievement and transformation. As a result of this support exchange programs were launched that provided new ground for international cooperation.

One such program was the US/USSR Project, launched by Werner Erhard and the Werner Erhard Foundation in 1979 and designed as an educational exchange to explore the principles of communication, management, and creative thinking with the people of what was then the Soviet Union.

One creates from nothing… If you try to create from something you are just changing something. So in order to create something you first have to be able to create nothing.

-Werner Erhard

In life you wind up with one of two things – the results or the reason why you don’t have the results. Results don’t have to be explained.  They just are.

Werner Erhard - Center For Public Leadership

“I have no interest in the justification of circumstances or producing guilt in others by assigning obligation. I am interested in providing an opportunity for people to experience mastery in the matter of their own lives and the experience of satisfaction, fulfillment, and aliveness. These are a function of the self as context rather than thing, the self as space rather than location or position, the self as cause rather than self at effect.”

“If you’re not all right the way you are
it takes a lot of effort to get better.
Realize you’re all right the way you are,
and you’ll get better naturally.

………………Don’t change beliefs.
………………Transform the believer.”

Werner Erhard  (from the Little Book of Aphorisms)

“Happiness is a function of accepting what is. Love is a function of communication. Health is a function of participation.  Self expression is a function of responsibility.”

CREATING ECSTASY

In the presence of relationships that simply swept him away, Werner remarked, “I remember myself saying things like, ‘Marvelous, fantastic… but, an accident.’ We think that such things happen only by chance.  They are not accidents. We have the power to create the space of relationship, to achieve mastery of our relationships. I’m not talking about being in ecstasy, or working little by little toward ecstasy. I’m talking about being willing to come from ecstasy, even when you are being serious, or having a problem, or not even thinking about ecstasy.”

“When you’ve said all of the
bad things and all of the good things
you haven’t been saying,
you will find that what you’ve really
been withholding is, “I love you.”
You don’t have to go looking for love
when it is where you come from.”

-Werner Erhard
