COMMUNITY

1 "Your neighbor is your other self dwelling behind a wall. In understanding, all walls shall fall down." Kahlil Gibran Invisible Acts of Power: Personal Choices That Create Miracles (Caroline Myss)

2 "A single sentence, uttered from your pulpits, lecterns, and rostrums, by your national congresses and your world summit leaders, could change everything. 'Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way.' This humble utterance could begin to heal the divisions between your religions, close the gap between your political parties, curb the conflicts between your nations. With one word you could end them. 'Namaste.' God in me honors God in you. How simple. How beautiful. How wondrous, indeed." Communion with God (Neale Donald Walsch)

3 "Who is our neighbor? The Samaritan? The outcast? The enemy? Yes, yes, of course. But it is also the whale, the dolphin and the rainforest. Our neighbor is the entire community of life, the entire universe. We must love it all as our self." Brian Patrick, author Spiritual Literacy, Reading the Sacred in Everyday Life (Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat)

4 "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)

5 "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)

6 "A worldwide communications network now links the people of the earth in a way unimaginable one hundred years ago. And there is clear evidence of an emerging segment of society which holds a holistic vision of human nature and ways of living." Visions and Prophecies for a New Age (Mark A. Thurston, Ph.D.)

7 "The forces of the world are always interdependent, and by acting together produce something new and essential." Lectures on the I Ching: Constancy and Change (Richard Wilhelm)

8 "All of us living beings belong together, in as much as we are all in reality sides or aspects of one single being, which may perhaps in western terminology be called God while in the Upanishads its name is Brahman." Erwin Schrodinger, 'My View of the World' Myths To Live By (Joseph Campbell)

9 "We can only grow as people by living in relationships, by in-depth communication, and by orientating ourselves towards justice and charity. Through this attitude we learn to live in 'correct proportions'." Catharina J. M. Halkes, Dutch Feminist theologian The Lion Christian Quotation Collection (Hannah Ward & Jennifer Wild, compilers)

10 "We can no longer hold our loves at home and project our aggressions elsewhere; for on this spaceship Earth there is no 'elsewhere' any more. And no mythology that continues to speak or to teach of 'elsewheres' and 'outsiders' meets the requirement of this hour." Myths To Live By (Joseph Campbell)

11 "A breeze is blowing through the human masses; one that draws us all by a sort of living affinity towards the splendid realization of some foreseen unity. Disputed, suspect and often scorned, unitary aspirations in politics, in thought, in mysticism, arise everywhere around us; and because their subject is not what is material and plural but what is spiritual and common to all in each one of us, no force of routine or egoism seems capable of arresting them; irresistibly they infiltrate and gradually dissolve old forms and false barriers." The Vision of the Past (Pierre Teilhard deChardin)

12 "The soul that empathetically identifies with both the pain and the joy of others begins to see that in the inner world we are not separate from each other. Peace and joy, no less than pain and sorrow, are shared, collective experiences. In the inner world it becomes clear that we can choose what we want to cultivate and that help is available." Shadows of the Sacred: Seeing Through Spiritual Illusions (Frances Vaughan, Ph.D.)

13 "When we are mindful, touching deeply the present moment, we can see and listen deeply, and the fruits are always understanding, acceptance, love, and the desire to relieve suffering and bring joy." Living Buddha, Living Christ (Thich Nhat Hanh)

14 "Our intrinsic Unity is experienced once again when we re-member." Communion with God (Neale Donald Walsch)

15 "Look upon the world as maturing – not only in each individual or in each nation, but in the whole human race – a specific power of knowing and loving whose transfigured term is charity, but whose roots and elemental sap lie in the discovery and the love of everything that is true and beautiful in creation." The Divine Milieu (Pierre Teilhard deChardin)

16 "In and through community lies the salvation of the world." M. Scott Peck, American psychiatrist and author The Lion Christian Quotation Collection (Hannah Ward & Jennifer Wild, compilers)

17 "Everyone is one's neighbour." Works of Love (Soren Kierkegaard)

18 "Now we are moving back toward community – because we need it to happen." Gay Luce The Mystic Hours, A Daybook of Interspiritual Wisdom & Devotion (Wayne Teasdale)

19 "God does not give us graces or talents or virtues for ourselves alone. We are members one of another and everything that is given to one member is given for the whole body." Seeds of Contemplatiion (Thomas Merton)

20 "We have a magnificent metaphor for the presence of love in our midst. Our fabulous technological ingenuity has created a world that is now linked by a pulsating electronic web, a global nervous system which demonstrates in a very concrete way that as a body of humanity we are all beautifully linked together, that we are all incredibly connected…… the real challenge now is for us to see that it is love that is truly the web of our connection, that we are all of a piece as human beings and spirits, that we share the same joys and woes, that we partake of the same eternal spiritual destiny." Daphne Rose Kingma, 'A Profound Infusion of Love' The Fabric of the Future (M. J. Ryan, editor)

21 "Human bodies are of course separate, but on a deeper level we are joined like icebergs in a common floe." The World's Religions (Huston Smith)

22 "The world needs us to start extending wholeness, because that is what we are." A Course in Miracles - A Gift For All Mankind (Tara Singh)

23 "What you perceive in others you are strengthening in yourself." A Course in Miracles (Helen Schucman and William Thetford)

24 "The right to live with mutual consideration and respect needs to be the newly-forged path of an aware society." Agartha: The Essential Guide to Personal Transformation in the New Era (Meredith L. Young)

25 "Can you look beyond the façade of another and empower that person's beauty? Can you see beyond the affects and defects in others and accept them as part of the beauty of yourself, the wonders of nature, and the miracle of love?" Miraculous Living (Rabbi Shoni Labowitz)

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
