THE UNITY OF REALITY
Michael vonBruck
God, God-Experience, and meditation in the Hindu-Christian dialogue

1 "The peace of God is a unity which is realized in the process of love."

2 "The divinity is One reality which, because of our manner of seeing it, appears in different hypostases which are perfect in themselves."

3 "God is at one and the same time and in the same circumstances the ground and the goal of reality. This can be illustrated in the following way: we frequently imagine reality as a ladder of cosmic evolution. God is not only the highest rung of the ladder, but also the material out of which it is constructed as well as its structure and its transendent ground that makes everything possible."

4 "Each partner is a light for the other and enables him/her to see better the depths of his/her own tradition. The religion of the partner is like a sounding board in which one's own terms and symbols acquire new over- or undertones."

5 "Only when we can treat others….as a thou and as a source for our self-understanding is true brotherhood/sisterhood possible between all peoples."

6 "When the dialogue partner becomes for me a source of my own self-understanding, he/she is also a source of my understanding of God."

7 "Freedom is the awareness of the basis of life and life lived in rhythm with this basis."

8 "The Son is being, realized. Through him everything exists (Romans 11:36; 1 Cor. 8:6; Col. 1:16). This statement implies a temporal eternity or eternal temporality, i.e., tempiternity, in the Son. He is the realization of the Father and therefore the visibility (John 14:9) or the being of the Father. He manifests God's perfect transcendence as immanent and through his being points to transcendence. As immanent transcendence he is being's eternal transcending being in the trinitarian self-realization of God."

9 "Everything is grounded in consciousness of the whole. The whole is always there and awaits our receptivity."

10 "Human freedom consists in knowing the unity of atman (the Self) and the cosmic order."

11 "Everything that exists, exists in God whose life it shares."

12 "Through the unifying power of love of the Spirit, creation reaches completion; i.e., it attains its essence."

13 "Reality is a self-differentiated whole. The ground of the wholeness is God, who manifests himself at various levels, each of which forms a relative wholeness and reacts with the others."

14 "God is the ground and mystery of creation who binds himself to forms yet is not held bound by them."

15 "Being crucified with Christ in order to share in the resurrection produces a new advaitic (non-dual) identity beyond our denial of self. I am no longer cut off from others as an individual self, but am now joined to the process of God's self-realization: this is the ground and goal of my life (John 12:25; Romans 6:3ff.; Gal. 2:19f.; Col. 2:12f.)"

16 "Brahman is one and is everything, above everything, outside everything, beyond everything and yet in everything….Brahman is the real self of all beings."

17 "The freedom of the one reality is the self-determination to realize love."

18 "The personal center of the individual is essentially the Self (atman), which is beyond the particularities of physical-psychic-mental life or of any changeable things or of change as such."

19 "It could be said that Jesus' experience both contains advaitic [non-dualistic] experience and proceeds towards a goal. It reaches its climax in the union of a personal encounter: i.e., it is in a perpetual dynamic of becoming one."

20 "Love is the very structure of the one reality."

21 "The eternal is IN the temporal and the temporal IN the eternal."

22 "God is relationship within the moments of one movement which constitutes his being."

23 "Humans are a true mirror-image of God. They project the manifold, but remain one and also know it, or at least can come to know it, because their true nature as pure consciousness is the integrating power of the One."

24 "Whoever recognizes in atman (the Self) the unity of reality is free from fear. For fear arises when there is an other who poses a threat. But atman is knowledge, and for it there is no other that is not already essentially a self. Non-dulaity is freedom from fear."

25 "The Absolute is in all experiences for there is nothing which is not an explication or manifestation of what we call the Absolute….the Absolute is not the sum of all the parts, but the unity of part and whole."

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...

Dreams are the things That makes up REALITY ?

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
