FAITH

1 "We learn music by mastering its fundamentals and then correcting every slip of our fingers as we practice. So we learn faith by trying to understand that we are children of light and then correcting every thought that denies our glorious heritage of life and love." The Healing Light (Agnes Sanford)

2 "Man is what he believes." Anton Chekhov (1860-1904), Russian writer, 'Notebooks' The Great Thoughts (George Seldes, compiler)

3 "One of the precepts of the great Tibetan yogis, taught to all neophytes, is: 'Difficult indeed is it to obtain Liberation through intellectual knowledge alone; through faith, Liberation is easily obtained.'" W. Y. Evans-Wentz Tibetan Book of the Dead (W Y Evans-Wentz, translator)

4 "Faith in the future is not dead in our hearts….it is hope, deepened and purified, which seems bound to save us." Building the Earth (Pierre Teilhard deChardin)

5 "Cast all your cares upon the Lord, and he will direct them. Believe in God…because he can do all things." The Shepherd of Hermas, Vision IV, v. 21 The Lost Books of The Bible and The Forgotten Books of Eden (various)

6 "In these times when outer conditions change so rapidly, put trust in the one thing that never changes: God's perfect spirit and love for us." Visions and Prophecies for a New Age (Mark A. Thurston, Ph.D.)

7 "The marvelous reveals itself in the mundane; in the garden, the park, the vacant lot, the desert. You see it in the sudden appearance of a cluster of fungus on a tree after a week of rain or at home dusting off furniture, revealing the surface underneath. To really see through, you must believe it is possible to do so and then simply do it! Before long, life becomes an experience of constant revelation." June Singer, 'Seeing Through the Visible World' As Above, So Below: Paths to Spiritual Renewal in Daily Life (Ronald S. Miller and the editors of New Age Journal)

8 "Hold faithfulness and sincerity as first principles." Confucius (551-479 bce), 'The Confucian Analects', bk. 1:3 Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 16th edition (John Bartlett)

9 "If the soul be faithful and humble, the Lord will not cease until He has raised it from one step to another, even to Divine union and transformation." Ascent of Mount Carmel (St. John of the Cross)

10 "A simple, childlike trust is often as important as wisdom and strict spiritual practice." Companions on the Inner Way (Morton T. Kelsey)

11 "We honor the mystery with trust in the process." Turning Toward the Mystery: A Seeker's Journey (Stephen Levine)

12 "Trusting yourself and your own process means believing that your task is to be fully yourself and that if you are, you will have everything you genuinely need for your soul's growth….Recognize that what you want and what you need often are not the same and that it is quite rational to trust the universe, God, or your higher self and let go." The Hero Within: Six Archetypes We Live By (Carol Pearson, Ph.D.)

13 "Trust in God's embrace." A Tree Full of Angels (Macrina Wiederkehr)

14 "He who has courage and faith will never perish in misery." Anne Frank (1929-1945), 'The Diary of a Young Girl', March 7, 1944 Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 16th edition (John Bartlett)

15 "And Jesus said, 'Faith is the power of God. All things are possible for him who in his heart believes." ch. 130, v. 10 Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ (Leo W. Dowling)

16 "It is well to remember the words from Hebrews: 'Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.' When you are childlike in your faith, that faith will sustain you in your determination to find your freedom from the darkness that would hide your True Self." Understanding Yourself: A Spiritual Approach to Self-Discovery and Soul-Awareness (Mark L. and Elizabeth Clare Prophet)

17 "Faith is an active force – not a passive one – an invisible power, like love." Invisible Acts of Power: Personal Choices That Create Miracles (Caroline Myss)

18 "Faith is the key that opens the door to the sacred." Doors to the Sacred: A Historical Introduction to the Sacraments of the Catholic Church (Joseph Martos)

19 "Now, you can demonstrate the power of God. Have faith in God…God hears the prayer of faith and when you ask in faith you shall receive." ch. 153, v. 6 & 8 Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ (Leo W. Dowling)

20 "Faith, derived from reality and always applicable to reality – this kind of faith is love of destiny….This faith is victory, for it knows how to guide creative energy toward the result of progress." Lectures on the I Ching: Constancy and Change (Richard Wilhelm)

21 “Even a weak or half-hearted faith is enough of an opening for God’s grace to work effectively in our lives.” Bernard of Clairvaux, Essential Writings (Dennis E. Tamburello, O.F.M.)

22 "The difference between faith as 'belief in something that may or may not exist' and faith as 'trusting in God' is enormous. The first is a matter of the head, the second a matter of the heart; the first can leave one unchanged, the second intrinsically brings change." Jesus, A New Vision: Spirit, Culture, and The Life of Discipleship (Marcus J. Borg)

23 "Faith is an affirmative stance toward life." The Way Things Are (Huston Smith, edited by Phil Cousineau)

24 "Faith is a living thing. It has to grow. The food that helps it to grow is the continued discoveries, the deeper understanding of reality." Going Home: Jesus and Buddha as Brothers (Thich Nhat Hanh)

25 "Only a long and patient struggle can teach us the operative power of faith and show us what it can achieve." Writings in Time of War (Pierre Teilhard deChardin)

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
