"Our own individual actions are extremely important because we are all part of this larger matrix, a global web. Our own acts of love build energy that we can all draw upon. Even a little bit of love on our part can create an important foundation for future generations to build upon." James and Salle Merrill Redfield, 'Listening for Love'

WORLD SOUL

1 "There are vast ranges of consciousness all stemming from the One, the One who is this consciousness in all of us and whose plan it is that all parts of life become more aware of each other and more united in the great forward movement which is life, all life, becoming greater consciousness." To Hear the Angels Sing (Dorothy Maclean)

2 "Through or behind the personal experience operates also a transpersonal guidance factor bent upon shaping a new significance and relation to self, other, and world. A new structuring of communality and consciousness is under way." Return of the Goddess (Edward C. Whitmont, MD)

3 "The Eternal Mind diffused through all the parts of nature actuates the whole stupendous frame and mingles with the vast body of the universe." Virgil The Secret Doctrine (Helena P. Blavatsky)

4 "It will not be long before no structure of truth or goodness can be built up without a central position being reserved for that soul [the soul of the world], for its influence and its universal mediation." The Soul of the World (Pierre Teilhard deChardin)

5 "This earthen womb knows unerringly the worth of each of her children." Nikos Kazantzakis (1883-1957), 'Report to Greco' The Way of The Earth, Encounters with Nature in Ancient and Contemporary Thought (T. C. McLuhan)

6 "Inner forces guide the evolution of humanity." Reincarnation and Immortality (Rudolf Steiner)

7 "All souls are identical with the Oversoul." The Light of the Soul (Alice A. Bailey)

8 “The world-soul pervades all things.” Collected Works (Carl Jung)

9 "Eros is the same Spirit-in-action that originally threw itself outward to create a vast morphogenetic field of wondrous possibilities (known as the Great Nest). Out of itself, as matter, it began; out of itself, as life, it continued; out of itself, as mind, it began to awaken. The same Spirit-in-action differentiated itself into modes of the good and the true and the beautiful, as it continued its evolutionary play. And it is now the same Spirit-in-action, starting to become collectively conscious of itself, that has initiated an era of integral embrace – global village to communications internet to integral theories to network society." Integral Psychology: Consciousness, Spirit, Psychology, Therapy (Ken Wilber)

10 "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)

11 "One who sees the Supersoul in every living being and equal everywhere does not degrade himself by his mind. Thus he approaches the transcendental destination." Bhagavad Gita, ch. 13, v. 29 Bhagavad-Gita As It Is (A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada)

12 "Man can rise to the consciousness of the World Soul – thereby becoming in actuality what he already is potentially." The Passion of the Western Mind: Understanding the Ideas That Have Shaped Our World View (Richard Tarnas)

13 "A synthesizing and directing energy stirs up and impels creatures towards a higher state of unity." The Soul of the World (Pierre Teilhard deChardin)

14 "Who else calls us back from the death of every error except that Life which cannot die, that wisdom which needs no light itself but enlightens every mind that needs it, by which the whole world is ruled, down even to the quivering leaves on the trees." Confessions (St. Augustine)

15 "God is the Master of all and He is the sum total of omniscience, being (as is easily seen) the sum total of all states of consciousness. He is the soul of all things, and the soul of the atom of matter as well as the souls of men are a part of His infinite realisation." The Light of the Soul (Alice A. Bailey)

16 "It is as if the universe is one single organism, motivated by a single power, developing in many ways to gradually become aware of itself through the awareness of the creatures and forces it produces." A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe: The Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art & Science (Michael S. Schneider)

17 "We have evidence everywhere of something working steadfastly within it (the world) toward a predetermined goal of goodness and perfection. Why otherwise does the usual season of rainfall come in time to bring on the farmer's crops?....The most important causes are in fact not the material, but the formal and final causes, the influence on substances of ends ahead, of purposes they are meant to achieve, of potentialities they are trying to make actual. As a builder frames in his mind a picture of a house, and holds to it as the reason for each subsequent step he takes, so nature pursues a course set by that which is yet to be." On Man In The Universe (Aristotle, edited w/ intro by Louise Ropes Loomis)

18 "The soul in humanity is an integral part of the Oversoul." The Light of the Soul (Alice A. Bailey)

19 "The world moves on, and everything in it, from sunrise to sunset, from new moon to full moon, from century to century, as if it had intelligence; as an arrow flies to its mark as though it had eyes. The arrow is in fact directed by eyes, but by the eyes and hands of the archer; the world too is directed by an intelligence, by the intelligence of God." My Way of Life, The Summa Simplified for Everyone (Walter Farrell and Martin J. Healy)

20 "Our life is maintained by continual inflow from the World-soul." God and The Evolving Universe: The Next Step in Personal Evolution (James Redfield, Michael Murphy and Sylvia Timbers)

21 "The earth is not a dead body, but is inhabited by a spirit that is its life and soul. All created things, minerals included, draw their strength from the earth spirit. This spirit is life." Basilius Valentinus, Alchemist The Way of The Earth, Encounters with Nature in Ancient and Contemporary Thought (T. C. McLuhan)

22 "The one Master is found within; it is the soul….This one Master is a corporate part of the Whole, of the All-Soul." The Light of the Soul (Alice A. Bailey)

23 "The Neter (Nature) is alive, it will always act in the rhythm of its nature but will adapt itself harmonically to ambient conditions." Nature Word (R. A. Schwaller deLubicz)

24 "The spirit of Nature is a unity, creating and forming everything." Johannes Tritheim, Abbot of Spanheim and Kabalist The Secret Doctrine (Helena P. Blavatsky)

25 "A spiritual evolution, an evolution of consciousness in Matter in a constant developing self-formation till the form can reveal the indwelling Spirit, is…the key-note, the central significant motive of the terrestrial existence." A Greater Psychology, An Introduction to Sri Aurobindo's Psychological Thought (Sri Aurobindo, edited by A. S. Dalal)

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
