"Were the ability to get on with one another not a basic part of human nature, no external laws would be able to implant it in us. It is only because human individuals ARE one in spirit that they can live out their lives side by side."

PROVIDENCE

1 "Each breath is carrying us all the way home into God, from whom each breath comes." Christian Meditation: Experiencing the Presence of God (James Finley)

2 "There are always those at every epoch in human history who are able to solve the problems which arise, and who are sent in for that very purpose." Esoteric Psychology I (Alice A. Bailey)

3 "The truth is that the Foresight and Providence of the Lord is in the very minutest of all the particulars." Emanuel Swedenborg A Compendium of the Theological Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg (Samuel M. Warren, compiler)

4 "God is your supply, not the vine nor the tree, nor the soil nor other human beings, nor the kingdoms of nature. God is your source of supply." The Findhorn Garden: Pioneering a New Vision of Man and Nature in Cooperation (The Findhorn Community)

5 "God attends, heeds, listens to and provides for us in our particularity: our existence is somehow significant to Him, and even our casual steps are known to and guided by Him." In Silence: Why We Pray (Donald Spoto, Ph.D.)

6 "There are no accidents, but only intentional designs." Collected Works (Carl Jung)

7 "The Divine Mind is intrinsic in nature, an innate part of natural processes, giving coherence and intelligent inner direction to natural forms." Ancient Wisdom, Modern Insight (Shirley Nicholson)

8 "There is nothing that comes to be or has come to be, in which God is not." Hermetica (Walter Scott, translator)

9 "Even force which is turned to destructive ends can and does finally work towards good, for the trend of the evolutionary force is unalterable, being based on the Will-to-good of Divinity Itself." The Destiny of the Nations (Alice A. Bailey)

10 "There is no unit of time or space, nor element of life, about which the Author of All Things is not actively concerned. He loves you because He loves everything and everyone. He who is Love cannot not love." The Gift of Change, Spiritual Guidance for a Radically New Life (Marianne Williamson)

11 "Trustfully commit yourself and all that concerns you to the unfailing and most sure Providence of God." On Union With God (Albertus Magnus (St. Albert the Great))

12 "An infinitely wise Being perfectly comprehends within his understanding and constant view the universality of things, in all their extent and duration, and sees all the influence of every event, with respect to every individual thing and circumstance throughout the grand system." Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), American preacher and philosopher A Treasury of Philosophy, Vol. 1 (Dagobert D. Runes, editor)

13 "Your Providence, O Lord, is so great that You take care of all Your creatures as if there were only one, and You take care of each one as if all others were enclosed in it." St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi Following the Holy Spirit (Rev. Walter Van DePutte)

14 "Spirit is both the very highest wave (purely transcendental) and the ever-present ground of all the waves (purely immanent), going beyond All, embracing All. The Great Nest is a multidimensional latticework of love – eros, agape, karuna, maitri – call it what you will, it leaves no corner of the Kosmos untouched by care nor alien to the mysteries of grace." Integral Psychology: Consciousness, Spirit, Psychology, Therapy (Ken Wilber)

15 "It should be noted that there is a certain hand of divine guidance, as in Wisdom 7: 'We are indeed in God's hand, we ourselves and our words, with all our understanding too, and technical knowledge.'" Thomas Aquinas, In Jer 16, p. 619 Sheer Joy, Conversations with Thomas Aquinas on Creation Spirituality (Matthew Fox)

16 "The final purpose of providence is the influence of the transcendent Centre whose unerring action can infallibly guide chance toward its determined end." Writings in Time of War (Pierre Teilhard deChardin)

17 "For every essential energy within us, there is potentially an equal, opposite energy to balance it – for example, doing and being, giving and receiving, power and vulnerability. The more we can develop and embrace these opposites of life within ourselves, the more conscious, integrated, and balanced we become. Life is always guiding us in the direction that will help us develop the qualities that we most need." The Path of Transformation, How Healing Ourselves Can Change The World (Shakti Gawain)

18 "Providence knows more of what is best for us than we ourselves." A Book of Angels (Sophy Burnham)

19 "God's balance maintains this creative universe and the evolution of all things." Agartha: The Essential Guide to Personal Transformation in the New Era (Meredith L. Young)

20 "The instinctive force inherent in the Higher Self does the work, and the driving force of evolution carries all on to perfection." Letters on Occult Meditation (Alice A. Bailey)

21 "It is a law of the Divine Providence that man should act from freedom according to reason." Emanuel Swedenborg A Compendium of the Theological Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg (Samuel M. Warren, compiler)

22 “Providence has neither a beginning nor an end, and is open to all and encompasses all.” Pseudo-Dionysius, The Complete Works (John Farina, Editor-in-Chief)

23 "There is a divine purpose that moves in tandem with every event in your life." Entering the Castle: An Inner Path to God and Your Soul (Caroline Myss)

24 "In a marvelous and mysterious way, an Overtruth takes care of our affairs." The Child Within Us Lives!, A Synthesis of Science, Religion and Metaphysics (William Samuel)

25 "All things are subject to divine providence, not only in general, but even in their own individual selves." Thomas Aquinas, ST I, q. 22, a. 2 Sheer Joy, Conversations with Thomas Aquinas on Creation Spirituality (Matthew Fox)

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
