THE DIVINE PLAN

1 "The future belongs to those who, across all nationalist and bourgeois conventions, boldly give the example of a greater faith in the forces of good and intelligence hidden in Man and a greater love for everything that rises or tries to rise." Letters to Two Friends: 1926-1952 (Pierre Teilhard deChardin)

2 "This is the deeper significance of the evolutionary process, that the human creature might re-establish communion with the Creator as a fully responsible agent infused with the power of God." Summons to Life, Contemporary Christian Insights (Martin Israel)

3 "During this dawning of our awakening as a species we will see the strangers in us disappear and the lovely oneness of our being open up to let in the light of true love and acceptance of all life and All There Is." Spirit Guides (Iris Belhayes)

4 "In the structure of the world and in nature generally,…purpose and unconscious teleology can be recognized….The universe is a kind of organism." Dietrich vonEngelhardt, 'Natural Science in the Age of Romanticism' Modern Esoteric Spirituality (Antoine Faivre and Jacob Needleman, editors)

5 "Throughout the whole course of this struggle [of life] we observe on the side of spirit – or, if you like it better, on the psychic side of life – an unmistakable instinct for transcendence: 'an internal push, which has carried life by more and more complex forms to higher and higher destinies.' (Bergson, 'L'Evolution creatrice')." The Mystic Way - A Psychological Study in Christian Origins (Evelyn Underhill)

6 "Blessings on the philosophy that shows us that the cohesion of things is destined to be completed!" Writings in Time of War (Pierre Teilhard deChardin)

7 "'No man liveth unto himself' (Romans XIV:7) and no nation either; the goal of all human effort is loving understanding, prompted by a program of love and right human relations for all mankind." The Reappearance of the Christ (Alice A. Bailey)

8 "Beings are what in the divine plan they were designed to be: steps to their Origin." Fire Within: St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, and the Gospel - on Prayer' (Thomas Dubay, S.M.)

9 "There is a plan for each of us, and each of us is precious. As we open our hearts more and more, we're moved in the directions in which we're supposed to go." A Return to Love, Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles (Marianne Williamson)

10 "To raise up a culture and a civilization that is saturated with light, light's dimension, and light's intention to be the fullness of God… - this indeed is the true destiny of the soul." The Human Aura (Kuthumi and Djwal Kul)

11 "God's Plan is all-embracing and His purposes are inclusive of all forms of life and their relationships." The Externalization of the Hierarchy (Alice A. Bailey)

12 "Crises precede transformation. Before every quantum change, 'problems' emerge – limits to growth, stagnation, unmanageable complexity, impending catastrophes, disintegration. From the perspective of the present, the crises look like mistakes, deadly errors in the system. But from the perspective after the quantum transformation, these problems are seen to be 'evolutionary drivers', vital stimulants which trigger astounding 'design innovations'." Barbara Marx Hubbard, 'The Evolutionary Journey' New Thoughts for a New Millennium (Michael A. Maday, editor)

13 "A worldwide communications network now links the people of the earth in a way unimaginable one hundred years ago. And there is clear evidence of an emerging segment of society which holds a holistic vision of human nature and ways of living." Visions and Prophecies for a New Age (Mark A. Thurston, Ph.D.)

14 "The Light Supernal, that central Life or Energy, holds hid within Itself the purpose and plan towards which all Being tends." A Treatise on White Magic (Alice A. Bailey)

15 "The radiation from the [human] kingdom will some day be so potent and far-reaching that its effects will permeate down into the very depths of the created phenomenal world, even into the mineral kingdom. Then we shall see the results to which the great initiate, Paul, refers when he speaks of the whole creation waiting for the manifestation of the Sons of God. That manifestation is that of radiating glory and power and love." The Destiny of the Nations (Alice A. Bailey)

16 "Aristotle said that everything in Nature displays its purpose (entelechy) to the degree that it shines forth (epiphaino) with its very own specific virtue or excellence (arete); that the divine power intends the realization of such excellence." Origins of the Sacred (Dudley Young)

17 "The human race is moving to critical mass. The day of atonement – that is, of at-ONE-ment – is near at hand." Tomorrow's God, Our Greatest Spiritual Challenge (Neale Donald Walsch)

18 "Inward development of self, communication between growing selves at the altitudes of their subtlest insights; these are essential to the way forward. Deep introspection, but not alone. Introspection propelled by the incitement of shared discovery." Creative Vision for Art and for Life (Richard Guggenheimer)

19 "What we are trying to do, all of us now in these times, is to uncover our depths, to get past the vacuum, to have the courage to cleanse, purify, prepare our souls for the difficult task of becoming an instrument through which the Source may play its great music in time and space. As hero/heroines, we are all now the agents for the next dispensation, the inspiration for the bringing of culture and consciousness to its next possibility. Because the hero/heroine's journey is always about the deepening of culture, the universe in its unfolding enters more fully into the local culture. As such, we are agents of the entelechy, the great purpose of life." Jean Houston, 'Living in One's and Future Myths' The Fabric of the Future (M. J. Ryan, editor)

20 "Evolution is transcendence (Erich Janstch's marvelous phrase: 'Evolution as self-realization through self-transcendence'); and transcendence has as its final goal Atman, or ultimate Unity Consciousness in only God. All drives are a subset of that Drive, all wants a subset of that Want, all pushes a subset of that Pull – and that whole movement is what we call the Atman-project: the drive of God towards God." The Atman Project (Ken Wilber)

21 "Out of separation comes synthesis, and out of domination comes cooperation. This is the promise of recreating the Garden that is Earth's essence." The Findhorn Garden: Pioneering a New Vision of Man and Nature in Cooperation (The Findhorn Community)

22 "When we all reach that perfection of love which is the contemplation of God in His glory, our inalienable personalities, while remaining eternally distinct, will nevertheless combine into one Person so that each one of us will find himself in all the others: and God will be the life and reality of all." Seeds of Contemplatiion (Thomas Merton)

23 "There IS a larger plan of unfolding good, a will-to-healing that is built into the workings of the universe. We will be told everything we need to know and shown everything we need to see. The Whole (Holy) Mind (Spirit) of God impresses itself upon us when we pray and meditate and seek to follow spiritual principles. As we open ourselves to receive His guidance, our thoughts and feelings fall into patterns that lead all things within and around us to realms of divine right order." The Gift of Change, Spiritual Guidance for a Radically New Life (Marianne Williamson)

24 "Always, beyond the darkness, God's greater plan is in motion. That is the truth you need to trust." Entering the Castle: An Inner Path to God and Your Soul (Caroline Myss)

25 "The Kabbalah emphasizes that in all matters of earthly life – encompassing our health, livelihood, and social relationships – the crucial perspective to adopt is that everything is part of the divine plan." Edward Hoffman, Ph.D., 'A Kabbalistic View of Karma' Karma, Rhythmic Return to Harmony (V. Hanson, R. Stewart & S. Nicholson, editors)

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
