PSYCHO/SPIRITUAL HEALING

1 "To understand everything is to hate nothing." Romain Rolland (1866-1944), French novelist, 'Jean-Christophe' The Great Thoughts (George Seldes, compiler)

2 "Surely the ideal is neither patriarchal nor matriarchal, but equal and in balance, in harmony with existence and one another." Nostradamus: Prophecies for Women (Manuela Dunn Muscetti & Peter Lorie)

3 "Look around you. Find an avenue where you can offer the gift of yourself." Worldwide Laws of Life: 200 Eternal Spiritual Principles (John Marks Templeton)

4 "Your world is perfect from the point of view of continually providing you with precisely the life experiences that you need for your overall development as a conscious being." Handbook to Higher Consciousness (Ken Keyes, Jr.)

5 "Through hardness and selfishness the heart grows rigid, and this rigidity leads to separation from all others. Egotism and cupidity isolate men. Therefore the hearts of men must be seized by a devout emotion. They must be shaken by a religious awe in face of eternity – stirred with an intuition of the One Creator of all living beings, and united through the strong feeling of fellowship." I Ching or The Book of Changes (Richard Wilhelm, translator)

6 "The sickening and insane tragedies of this vast and ruthless cosmos are completely validated in the majesty of Being." Joseph Campbell, 'Hero With a Thousand Faces' A Passion for This Earth, Exploring a New Partnership of Man, Woman & Nature (Valerie Andrews)

7 "In order to grow and survive we need to uncover some common ground to talk about what we're experiencing from our unique viewpoints. We need to develop a means of communicating with one another that is sensitive to - and even tolerant of - contrasting points of view. Our talking must 'take into account', rather than talk in defense. Breaking the Mind Barrier (Todd Siler)

8 "What the wisdom traditions insist is that if we could understand and comprehend the whole of what seems to us, in our heart's hot spots, as being irreducible tragedies, it would be like the learning experiences that a one-year-old child encounters that we understand are necessary for the growth of that child." The Way Things Are (Huston Smith, edited by Phil Cousineau)

9 "Study your daily conduct and words and thoughts so as to make them utterly harmless. Set yourself to think those thoughts about yourself and others which will be constructive and positive, and hence harmless in their effects." A Treatise on White Magic (Alice A. Bailey)

10 "Spiritual teachings encourage us to grow past and through painful experiences, each of which is a spiritual lesson." Anatomy of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Power and Healing (Caroline Myss)

11 "May all that I do today contribute to the healing of the world, and may my heart be open enough to allow the world to contribute to my healing." Calling the Circle: The First and Future Culture (Christina Baldwin)

12 "When suffering grows, the invincible force of nature moves to set man's vision right and establish a way of life which will again fulfil the high purpose of his existence. The long history of the world records many such periods in which the ideal pattern of life is first forgotten and then restored to man." Maharishi Mahesh Yogi On The Bhagavad-Gita (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi)

13 "Your answers lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust. You'll tend to forget all this. You can remember anytime you wish." Author unknown Worldwide Laws of Life: 200 Eternal Spiritual Principles (John Marks Templeton)

14 "Bitterness is produced merely by the misunderstanding with which men approach Wisdom; if they surrendered to her, the bitterness of the struggle would no longer prevail, but only the 'sweetness' of pure love." Aurora Consurgens (Marie Louise vonFranz)

15 "Stopping the Blaming Game is called forgiveness. That is precisely what forgiveness is: the process of stopping, of ending, the Blaming Game. And it is tough…Real forgiveness is a tough, tough process, but it is an absolutely necessary one for your mental health." Further Along the Road Less Traveled: The Unending Journey Toward Spiritual Growth (M. Scott Peck, M.D.)

16 "The Self can't be threatened since, being the All, there is nothing outside of it that could harm it." Grace and Grit: Spirituality and Healing in the Life and Death of Treya Killam Wilber (Ken Wilber)

17 "The psyche has a remarkable ability to weather the storms of life and to renew itself." Spiritual Pilgrims, Carl Jung & Teresa of Avila (John Welch, O. Carm.)

18 "The consciousness process is complex and often mysterious. We can't always know exactly why something is happening. Remember that our soul uses every avenue available to educate and enlighten us." The Path of Transformation, How Healing Ourselves Can Change The World (Shakti Gawain)

19 "Even a partial realisation of the unity of life blends a person mentally and spiritually with his fellowmen and with Nature. At the same time, it endows him with power which he can use in character-correction and character-building." Basic Theosophy (Geoffrey Hodson)

20 "Where there is tranquillity, there is neither craving nor aversion, but a steady will to conform to the divine Tao or Logos on every level of existence and a steady awareness of the divine Suchness and what should be one's own relation to it." The Perennial Philosophy (Aldous Huxley)

21 "The ability and willingness to enter into experience, honestly appraising it, finding its value in outer life and courageously exploring its inner meaning to us, is the attitude that sets free creative energy and makes life move within us." Frances G. Wickes (1875-1970), American psychotherapist, 'The Creative Process' The Choice Is Always Ours (Dorothy B. Phillips, Chief Editor)

22 "O you who are possessed with the desire to contemplate the true good….do not despair of being able to see the object of your desires….You have only to return to the purity of the image established in you in the beginning: you will find in yourself what you seek, for once the spirit is cleansed, you will find the blessed vision in the serenity of your heart. There you will find purity, holiness, simplicity, all those gentle radiances of the divine nature by which God is seen." Gregory of Nyssa, 'De beatitudinibus', 6 The Holy Fire, the Story of the Fathers of the Eastern Church (Robert Payne)

23 "God our Creator has laid up within our minds and personalities all the potential powers and ability we need for constructive living." The Power of Positive Thinking and The Amazing Results of Positive Thinking (Norman Vincent Peale)

24 "No matter what you're going through, the Ancestral Mind, grounded in the experiences of millions of years of evolution, can provide the emotional wisdom you need to endure and prevail." The Ancestral Mind: Reclaim the Power (Gregg D. Jacobs, Ph.D.)

25 "Every need is always and forever balanced by a solution, and the power of this potential solution is 'spirit'. Spirit is the energy of the infinite potential of Space…There is only one Supreme Law: Everything is as the need for harmony requires. Everything acts in order to satisfy what, at the time and to the best of its knowledge, it feels it needs. Everything seeks to act according to its fundamental nature." Occult Preparations for a New Age (Dane Rudhyar)

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
