"Please, decide that you are going to be one of those who will do what you can do, every moment, every day, to free yourself and those around you from the oppression of a belief in an angry, punishing, vengeful, and violent God….Do this in whatever way presents itself to you. Out of your intention and determination those opportunities will come to you in the day-to-day living of your life. Open your eyes and you'll see them all around you."

LECTURES ON ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY
Manly P. Hall

1 "The glorious Universal Self is the One who is in all, the All which is in each."

2 “All things are one in reality and in essence.”

3 “The all-sufficiency of Universal Good is all-sufficing.”

4 “The law of the soul is love.”

5 "Until we are everything that we in our ignorance believe surrounds us, there is no complete consciousness. We may study the star intellectually, but we have never attained consciousness until we are the star, the stone, the heavens, and the earth. When our consciousness is perfect we extend from the heights of height to the depths of depth; we permeate the whole nature of existence; we are in everything, we are through everything, we are the whole nature of everything."

6 "Man, gazing into the eyes of man, beholds therein his Maker. His Creator sings to him with the voice of the wilderness, and descends upon him from the stars that spangle the heavens by night."

7 “All are embraced within the span of the eternal philosophic NOW.”

8 “Since the generated world is a collective whole, if we apply the ears of our intellect to the world we shall, perhaps, hear it thus addressing us: ‘There is no doubt but I was composed from all animals, entirely sufficient to myself, and destitute of nothing;…All things are contained in my ample bosom.” Plotinus, ‘On Providence’

9 “Beauty is in the human soul, lifting us upward to ever nobler vistas of endeavor.”

10 “Every human soul is innately divine.”

11 "The rational soul is necessarily unselfish because it conceives self to be distributed throughout the entire substance of Being."

12 "Mankind may be considered as a vast organism with one Spirit or Self manifesting through an infinite number of organisms."

13 “It is predestined that the Golden Age shall come again; that men shall live together in love and understanding, and the earth shall become once more a garden of surpassing beauty as it was in the beginning.”

14 “He who becomes luminous shines not with a separate light but rather is merged with the one light whose radiance is diffused throughout all worlds.”

15 "The world is not the product of casual effort or the work of irrational fortune, but the offspring of an intellectual nature and a divine wisdom."

16 “The One and Undivided is the very foundation of manifested existence.”

17 “The soul naturally desires the adornment of wholeness.”

18 "The aspiring soul seeks Self in the selflessness of the Great Law."

19 “Humanity’s sphere of influence is as far-reaching as creation, and what we first agitate diverges to the shores of eternity like the ripples from a stone thrown upon the surface of some placid lake.”

20 “For this age we must have a doctrine of synthesis, a code actuated and dominated by the spirit of unification.”

21 “The One Supreme Power manifesting throughout the cosmic organism should be considered as manifesting through all created things.”

22 "Man is as surely clothed in the garments of virtue as he is in the garments of the physical; they are vehicles of his expression no less real than are the members formed of bone, flesh, or sinew."

23 "We are destined by Eternal Providence to become the fullness of ourselves….we shall find perfection in the consummation of the destiny for which we were first conceived."

24 “Perfect rhythms stream continually from the splendor of Abiding Destiny.”

25 “Having ultimately attained through right thinking, right feeling, and right living to the condition of the beautiful within ourselves, with enraptured vision we can respond in perfect measure to the eternal beauty which flows from the inexhaustible fountain of the one Good.”

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
