EVIL

1 "In the perfection of All, there isn't a single real evil. God is all and only." The Child Within Us Lives!, A Synthesis of Science, Religion and Metaphysics (William Samuel)

2 "Good is everywhere, ever abiding; and evil, so-called, is the ignorance in ourselves impelling us to violate the patterns for human growth that exist forever in the Infinite Mind." Buddhism and Psychotherapy, The Healing of Heart Doctrine (Manly P. Hall)

3 "Why not plunge into union with the Great Goddess Kali? Discover your spiritual anxiety to be without the slightest ground." Ramprasad, 18th century Bengali mystic The Essential Mystics (Andrew Harvey)

4 "I feel sure in my bones there is no such thing as absolute evil, for evil is in essence only a dearth of good, a deficiency from certain viewpoints, a negative quality, a relative value....….Some might say a completely white page is purer and more perfect than one with many black marks upon it. But of course a pure page is also a blank page and worthless because it conveys no meaning." Seven Mysteries of Life, An Exploration in Science and Philosophy (Guy Murchie)

5 "The only palliative to the evils of life is union and harmony – a Brotherhood in action, and altrusism not simply in name." The Secret Doctrine (Helena P. Blavatsky)

6 "As it is written in the Bible, 'What man has intended for evil, God intends for good.' Even the most horrific situations can increase within us our capacity to love." Everyday Grace, Having Hope, Finding Forgiveness, and Making Miracles (Marianne Williamson)

7 "Evil has no positive nature; what we call evil is merely the lack of something that is good." The City of God (St. Augustine)

8 "We can see in the darkness if we will look through the eyes of God." My Way of Life, The Summa Simplified for Everyone (Walter Farrell and Martin J. Healy)

9 "Evil originates in divine thought, which eliminates waste before emanating goodness. The demonic is rooted in the divine." Essential Kabbalah, The Heart of Jewish Mysticism (Daniel C. Matt)

10 "Darkness is dispelled by sending out bright beams of light." Address to the Representatives of World Religions (Pope John Paul II)

11 "In Cosmic Consciousness there is no condemnation, no sin, no evil, no death. This may be a hard saying, but it is true." Cosmic Consciousness (Richard M Bucke)

12 "What is called good is perfect, and what is called bad is just as perfect.' Walt Whitman Varieties of Religious Experience, The (William James)

13 "Oh, God, what's it all about? In my view, even blackness and despair has been designed into God's system. You may not completely believe or even remember this in this moment, but on some level, a part of you has actually created all of it." Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., 'The Soul and Quantum Physics' Experiencing the Soul (Eliot Jay Rosen, editor)

14 "If we were privy to the whole spectrum of reality, we would then see that, yes, even what looks like unmitigated evil to us has its place in the scheme of things entire." The Way Things Are (Huston Smith, edited by Phil Cousineau)

15 "In every evil we must seek out the elements that allow us to transform it into good." How To Know Higher Worlds: A Modern Path of Initiation (Rudolf Steiner)

16 "Evil is after all only an impelling sense of difference, leading inevitably to separative action." The Rays and The Initiations (Alice A. Bailey)

17 "I feel that the Shylocks, the Judases, and even the Devil, are broken spokes in the great wheel of good which shall in due time be made whole." The Story of My Life (Helen Keller)

18 "In the presence of him who has perfected harmlessness, all enmity ceases." The Light of the Soul (Alice A. Bailey)

19 "Walk you the gentle way, and you will fear no evil and no shadows in the night." A Course in Miracles (Helen Schucman and William Thetford)

20 "Good and evil are the light and shade of the same thing." Duncton Found (William Horwood)

21 "The capacity to overcome evil requires that one has perceived the Good-beyond-evil and molded oneself to its Image and nature." The Gospel of Mary of Magdala: Jesus and the First Woman Apostle (Karen L. King)

22 "Good encompasses evil and transmutes it, showing its place in the total scheme of things." The Way Things Are (Huston Smith, edited by Phil Cousineau)

23 "There is no evil that cannot be turned to the good that is in us all." Duncton Found (William Horwood)

24 "According to the Jewish Kabbalah teachings, evil occurs when the function of discrimination or judgment (Gevurah) is separated from its natural complement – loving kindness or mercy (Hesed). The implication is that discriminative judgment must be integrated with kindness or compassion for this opposition to be transformed. A similar moral attitude is implied by the Buddhist teachings that advocate a balanced integration of discriminative wisdom and compassion." The Unfolding Self: Varieties of Transformative Experience (Ralph Metzner)

25 "Unawareness is the root of all evil." Anonymous Egyptian monk The Spirituality of Imperfection: Modern Wisdom from Classic Stories (Ernest Kurtz & Katherine Ketcham)

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
