COMMUNITY

1 "It is important to foster a distinct awareness of our universal brother- and sisterhood." Soul Centered Astrology, A Key to Your Expanding Self (Alan Oken)

2 "We are thoroughly blended into the universal energy of essential relationship – interconnectedness." Who Do You Think You Are? The Healing Power of Your Sacred Self (Carlos Warter, M.D., Ph.D.)

3 "Remain always true to yourself, but move ever upward toward greater consciousness and greater love! At the summit you will find yourself united with all those who, from every direction, every culture, have made the same ascent. For everything that rises must converge." Pierre Teilhard deChardin to Jean Houston A Mythic Life, Learning to Live our Greater Story (Jean Houston)

4 "United we stand, divided we fall." Aesop (620-560 bce), Greek author, 'The Four Oxen and the Lion' The Great Thoughts (George Seldes, compiler)

5 "The impetus toward community is here and it is not going to leave us. Many of us are feeling a growing restlessness that has to do with dreams of new ways of living….We want clear air and space to be, work, breathe and live. This alongside the sense that we belong together as soul friends." Alchemy, The Art of Transformation (Jay Ramsay)

6 "If I put a person on a pedestal, I feel separated and somehow less than him or her. Likewise, if I look down on someone, for whatever reason, I separate myself. It is possible to see others on the same level, not looking up or down. When I do this I can see others as equally valuable parts of the whole fabric of reality of which we are all a tiny part." Shadows of the Sacred: Seeing Through Spiritual Illusions (Frances Vaughan, Ph.D.)

7 "What we encounter in everyday life are not discrete individuals and solid objects, but integral aspects of a unified energetic field." The Cosmic Game, Explorations of the Frontiers of Human Consciousness (Stanislav Grof)

8 "If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?" Alexander I. Solzhenitsyn (b. 1918), Russian author, Nobel Prize 1970, 'The Gulap Archipelago' The Great Thoughts (George Seldes, compiler)

9 "In the inmost Self, every human being is intimately related to every other…However marked the differences may be at the levels of the mortal man, inwardly the spirit in each one is the same, an essence which is equally shared. Indeed, the same actual, identical Life-Essence is incarnate or embodied in the whole of nature, nothing existing without that Presence being inherently within it as a veritable Reality." Call to the Heights, Guidance on the Pathway to Self-illumination (Geoffrey Hodson)

10 "This focus of synthesis and unity, this resolution of dualities into greater, more inclusively loving wholes, is fundamental to the New Age." Soul Centered Astrology, A Key to Your Expanding Self (Alan Oken)

11 "There is no separation OF anything, FROM anything. There is only Unity. There is only Oneness." Communion with God (Neale Donald Walsch)

12 "Visualize the Law of Right Human Relations as two clasped hands encircling a bright, glowing planet Earth. Contemplate and consider the implications of Right Human Relations. Make a plan as to how you may demonstrate Right Human Relations individually in the world." Soul Centered Astrology, A Key to Your Expanding Self (Alan Oken)

13 "Though each of us is a unique individual, we make up one humanity, our divisions into nations and groups of nations are less fundamental than our oneness." Ancient Wisdom, Modern Insight (Shirley Nicholson)

14 "Begin heart and soul to spread the teaching of universal brotherhood…universal brotherhood rests upon the common soul." H. B. Blavatsky, interview in London, 1887 Reincarnation: The Phoenix Fire Mystery (Cranston/Head, editors)

15 "In this new civilization and the emerging global culture, for the first time humanity is sufficiently developed to make a planetary, global pattern, incorporating the very best of all men and women. I think that this planetary psychosynthesis, this psychosynthesis of humanity is possible and needed. Each particular problem will then have its frame of reference in the greater whole, and conflict can be replaced by harmonious integration and cooperation. All of this is within our reach – for not only is it very beautiful – it is HUMAN." Roberto Assagioli and Claude Servan-Schreiber, 'A Higher View of the Man-Woman Problem' The Goddess Re-Awakening: The Feminine Principle Today (Shirley Nicholson, Compiler)

16 "Dream of a world in which the God and Goddess in you is never denied, and in which you never again deny the God and the Goddess in another. Let your greeting, both now and forevermore, be Namaste." Communion with God (Neale Donald Walsch)

17 "With the end of the purely rational and dualistic understanding of the world, of Newtonian physics and its logical categories and divisions, we are now beginning to speak in the terms of inter-connectedness, of the web of creation, of the network which brings all things together into a shared unity." Beasts and Saints (Helen Waddell)

18 "There is no separation between you and me, between you and any other person…we all 'inter-are.' As my friend Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, 'All life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny.'" Creating True Peace: Ending Violence in Yourself, Your Family, Your Community, and the World (Thich Nhat Hanh)

19 "It cannot be stressed strongly enough that our tendency as the Human Race is to move to a consciousness of the relationship between the individual and the collective. This will lead to a greatly expanded awareness of the collective itself." Soul Centered Astrology, A Key to Your Expanding Self (Alan Oken)

20 "Man must work toward the areas of shared brotherhood, focusing on the similarities of spiritual pursuit rather than the differences." Agartha: The Essential Guide to Personal Transformation in the New Era (Meredith L. Young)

21 "Modern scientists have concluded that all phenomena are interrelated in complex networks of energy transformation. Teilhard deChardin's concept of the noosphere, a network of thought ecompassing the planet, is one such idea. The notion of networks of individuals who share a common interest and provide information and support to one another has enormous potential for furthering individual and social transformation." The Unfolding Self: Varieties of Transformative Experience (Ralph Metzner)

22 "Quantum theory reveals a basic oneness of the universe. It shows that we cannot decompose the world into independently existing smallest units. As we penetrate into matter, nature does not show us any isolated building blocks, but rather appears as a complicated web of relations between the various parts of a unified whole." Ken Wilber, 'The Holographic Paradigm', 1982 The Relevance of Bliss (Nona Coxhead)

23 "We shall not allow ourselves to think of our fellow human beings in any way that is incompatible with the profound respect due their dignity and freedom." How To Know Higher Worlds: A Modern Path of Initiation (Rudolf Steiner)

24 "It can seem as if the world is falling to pieces….and yet the call keeps coming, a call, I think, which is not so much to power as to community with all those others who are wounded, whose worlds or lives also seem to be falling apart, and yet who are actually – we must believe – giving birth to something new." Veronica Brady, Australian writer The Lion Christian Quotation Collection (Hannah Ward & Jennifer Wild, compilers)

25 "Wholeness, according to the perennial psychology, is WHAT is real and ALL that is real. A radically separate, isolated and bounded entity does not exist anywhere. There are no seams in the world, in things, in people or in God." The Atman Project (Ken Wilber)

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
