3 "He who lives in harmony and friendship of brotherly love, naturally and not artificially, completely and not partially, this person is truly…the universal one and perfect love." The Second Treatise of the Great Seth (early Christian Gnostic text),

4 "Earth the same for all, not divided by walls and fences, will then bear fruits more abundant of its own accord, livelihood held in common, wealth unapportioned! No pauper is there, no rich man, nor any tyrant; no slave, nor again any great, nor shall any be small,..all share in common. This also He will do." Christian Sibyllines

5 "We receive conception from the grace which is in each other." The Gospel of Philip (3rd century Christian Gnostic sacramental catechism)

6 "The soul of man..is the spirit of God moving upon the face of the waters." 'Haggadah' (4th century Jewish text),

7 "All things are made fast according to the will of the Holy Spirit through the Self-born." The Secret Book of John (1st century Gnostic text)

8 "He shall show ways to men, he shall show heavenly paths; and he shall teach all with wise speeches....He shall walk the waves, and deliver man from sickness, He shall raise up the dead, and banish many pains. And from one wallet there shall be sufficiency of bread for men...In his hand is all the world, and earth and heaven and sea. He shall flash like lightning on the earth, as at his first appearance two saw him, begotten from each other's side. It shall be, when earth shall rejoice in the hope of a Son." Christian Sibyllines

9 "Every soul is a gift of God." Christian Sibyllines, 2nd century Christian Apocrypha

10 "He who has known himself has at the same time already achieved knowledge about the depth of the All." The Book of Thomas the Contender, 3rd century Gnostic text

11 "In the uprightness of our love we are innocent, pure, and good, since we have a mind of the Father in an ineffable mystery…He who lives in harmony and friendship of brotherly love, naturally and not artificially, completely and not partially, this person is truly the desire of the Father. He is the universal one and perfect love." The Second Treatise of the Great Seth (early Christian Gnostic text)

12 "These are the colors which I tell you to paint with: faith in God, knowledge, reverence, kindness, fellowship, mildness, goodness, brotherly love, purity, sincerity, tranquility, fearlessness, cheerfulness, dignity and the whole band of colors which portray your soul and already raise up you that were cast down and level those that were lifted up, which cure your bruises and heal your wounds and arrange your tangled hair and wash your face and instruct your eyes and cleanse your heart." The Acts of John, Christian Apocrypha

13 "We are that single, sole light which came into being." The Paraphrase of Shem (Gnostic text, ca. 1st century bce),

17 "The substance of the ungenerated Father of all is incorruption and self-existent light, simple and homogeneous." Ptolemaeus' Letter to Flora, 2nd century Gnostic text

18 "The light will cover the darkness. It will wipe it out. It will become like one which had not come into being. And the work which the darkness followed will be dissolved. And the deficiency will be plucked out at its root and thrown down to the darkness. And the light will withdraw up to its root. And the glory of the unbigoted will appear, and it will fill all of the Aeons, when the prophetic utterance and the report of those who are kind are revealed and are fulfilled by those who are called perfect...For each one by his deed and his knowledge will reveal his nature." The Origin Of The World, 3rd Century AD Gnostic text

19 "According to Plotinus the supreme source of the world is the One." Willis Barnstone

20 "Light and darkness, life and death, right and left, are brothers of one another. They are inseparable." The Gospel of Philip, (3rd century Christian Gnostic sacramental catechism)

21 "There is one supernal soul which is the soul of all souls." The Zohar, The Book of Radiance

22 "Each 'cosmic event' of self-knowledge affects the whole universe, helping to bring grace to the world." Willis Barnstone, preface to 'The Gospel of Truth and the Valentinian Speculation'

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
