PRAYER

1 "Meditation is the inexpressible longing of the inner man for the Infinite." H. P. Blavatsky The Mental Body (Arthur E. Powell)

2 "Prayer is the recovery of the soul's breathing." Gerald Heard, 'The Christian Century' Encyclopedia of Religious Quotations (Frank S Mead, editor)

3 "I learned to pray, not because I had adequately argued out prayer's rationality, but because I desperately needed help from a Power greater than my own. I learned that God, much more than a theological proposition, is an immediately available Resource." Harry Emerson Fosdick The Mind of Jesus (William Barclay)

4 "Make us find ourselves again in our love for you, brotherly earth!" Minas Dimakis (1916-1980), Greek poet and essayist The Way of The Earth, Encounters with Nature in Ancient and Contemporary Thought (T. C. McLuhan)

5 "No one who has once really approached the Source will, by repeatedly taking refuge in it, go away unstrengthened." An Outline of Occult Science (Rudolf Steiner)

6 "Will the Old Mother who guides the birds and animals, and teaches them to care for their young, and to build the simple nests and dens of their kind, will She remain silent to the need of the noblest of her creatures?" Healing: The Divine Art (Manly P. Hall)

7 "Prayer does nothing to make God more present, for God is always present. Prayer is our response to the presence of God in our lives." A Tree Full of Angels (Macrina Wiederkehr)

8 "As you pray, feel a Oneness, a unity in all life where there is no separation, for all is One." The Spirit of Findhorn (Eileen Caddy)

9 "It is impossible to hate or wish ill towards a person for whom one is in deep prayer." The Light of Love (Patricia Devlin)

10 "Think of the news as humanity's prayer list. How different the world would be if everyday's newspaper reports were met with prayers for healing from its readers! And that will happen, when the modern mind realizes the power of spirit. Prayer itself will emerge from the constricting limitations of religious doctrine, to become a spontaneous call of the soul to the higher power from whence we came." Everyday Grace, Having Hope, Finding Forgiveness, and Making Miracles (Marianne Williamson)

11 "Prayer, the basic exercise of the spirit, must be actively practiced by men and nations. For if the power of prayer is again released and used in the lives of common men and women, if the spirit declares its aims clearly and boldly, there is yet hope that our prayers for a better world will be answered." Alexis Carrell, Nobel Laureate, 'Homme c'est Inconnu' Divine Light and Fire, Experiencing Esoteric Christianity (Peter Roche deCoppens)

12 "People say to me, 'how can I pray for another?' It's really very simple. Sit down and surround the person you are thinking of with love. Love him. Love her. Feel this love through your whole being. Then right thoughts and right words and right ideas will come to you. The real work is done when you start loving." Drawing the Larger Circle, How to Love and Be Loved (Jack and Cornelia Addington)

13 "Give rest to the weary, visit the sick, support the poor, for this also is prayer." Afrahat, the first Syriac Father Macmillan Dictionary of Religious Quotations (Margaret Pepper, editor)

14 "I can see that the power of prayer and intention – theirs, yours, mine – forges the grace that holds our world together." Invisible Acts of Power: Personal Choices That Create Miracles (Caroline Myss)

15 "Prayer is and remains always a native and deep impulse of the soul of man." Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881), Scottish historian The Lion Christian Quotation Collection (Hannah Ward & Jennifer Wild, compilers)

16 "Turn our hearts, O Christ, to everlasting truth and healing harmony." Philip Melanchthon (1497-1560), Humanist scholar and Lutheran theologian The Lion Christian Quotation Collection (Hannah Ward & Jennifer Wild, compilers)

17 "That we may outgrow our need for dualism and conflict – that is my prayer." The Mystic Hours, A Daybook of Interspiritual Wisdom & Devotion (Wayne Teasdale)

18 "When we pray in accordance with the law of love, we are praying in accordance with the will of God." The Healing Light (Agnes Sanford)

19 "If you want your petition to be heard, hear the petition of others. If you do not close your ear to others you open God's ear to yourself." St. Peter Chrysologus, bishop, Sermon 43 Christian Prayer: The Liturgy of the Hours (various)

20 "God tirelessly calls each person to that mysterious encounter known as prayer." Catechism of the Catholic Church (Various)

21 "God welcomes the discourse born of prayer, and when He is lovingly invoked and called to our aid, He bestows inexpressible joy on the beseeching soul." Theoliptos, Metropolitan of Philadelphia, 'Texts' The Philokalia, volume 4 (various authors, compiled by St. Nikodimos and St. Makarios)

22 "Love and prayer cannot in any way be separated from each other. They are different aspects of the same divine whole." Companions on the Inner Way (Morton T. Kelsey)

23 "The healing Spirit of God is in the wind and the sun and in the little creeping things upon the earth and is most certainly available to the one who prays with faith." The Healing Gifts of the Spirit (Agnes Sanford)

24 "As Brother Lawrence taught so long ago, any and every loving action, reverently performed, is a prayer." Tasha Halpert, 'Musings of a Homegrown Mystic' The Quest (various)

25 "Lord, purge our eyes to see within the seed a tree, within the glowing egg a bird, within the shroud a butterfly, till, taught by such, we see beyond all creatures, thee." Christina Rossetti (1830-1894), English poet The Lion Christian Quotation Collection (Hannah Ward & Jennifer Wild, compilers)

I would like to contact Richard Roberts to ask permission to reprint the cover art from his Tales for Jung Folk on our website. We have a spiritual astrology section, and this would be a great addition to it--as an personification of the energies of Saturn. Can you help me find Richard? Many thanks, Betsy Caprio, D.Min.

When someone hurts someone we love, our first instinct is to attack them back, that is not who we are... We need to learn to listen to our spirit and not our minds...

Oracle of Compassion: the Living Word of Kuan Yin

"A helpful mindset is simple-living and high-thinking”, continues Kuan Yin. “Science is constantly evolving. There are now recyclable batteries, ink cartridges, etc. Keep up to date on the latest technologies. Be aware, set examples and create trends that will positively influence people’s lives and the environment. As I said earlier, however, this is also a discussion about love and developing a greater capacity to love. It can help everyone. We’re all one huge family, a great continuum. Don’t underestimate the power of the love created in your homes and families. This love has an immense potency, the power to influence other’s lives in a positive way.”-Kuan Yin

Soulistry-Artistry of the Soul

Recently discovered this site through Circle Connections and thought others might like to know of another resource where inspirational quotations offer much "food for thought" insofar as the quotations are accompanied by Soulistry Soul-Questions ... questions which encourage one to go-within and reflect on the quotation from a variety of perspectives. The Soulistry book has just been released and is available on Amazon.com as well as other online booksellers and local bookstores. Thank you for helping me to share news of Soulistry (full title of the book btw is "Soulistry-Artistry of the Soul: Creative Ways to Nurture Your Spirituality").

Dear Bruce: What a remarkable synchronicity it is, to open up this page, and find several amazing quotes from the much-beloved ecospiritual community of Findhorn! This is just another "coincidence" for me, as part of a seemingly-ongoing set of experiences regarding Findhorn and the Nature Spirits. Thank you for including the Spirit of Findhorn on your website! ... By the way, I have been trying to log-in to my page, so that I may update my email address, but am at the moment unable to do so; as of last week, I haven't been able to access my Gmail account, and have set up a new Gmail address: roslynrus33@gmail.com . I shall send you an email directly regarding this. Many blessings, Roslyn.

IlluminatingSpirit - Samantha Spiritual Gathering Westhampton, NY

At Samantha's Spiritual Gathering the mission and purpose is to empty the chalice/temple (self) of all things co-mingled on the Earth plane with earthly people and to Allow the self/being on all levels, to fill up with the Spirit of the Divine Creator... that Spirit which is enmeshed, saturated, and intertwined with your Spirit. Bringing that Spirit down into the Chalice of your beingness...your physical body as well, helps everyone to be empowered through their own Spirit guided by the Divine Creator of many names. The Global Network is a Gathering, sharing Spirit to Spirit and I am humbly grateful to partake in sharing from my space of Spirit. Thank You, Samantha Paitakis
