REINCARNATION: THE PHOENIX FIRE MYSTERY
Cranston/Head, editors

1 "The immortal Self is a ray or emanation of the Universal Self." Editors

2 "The whole infinity of discrete and independent souls is yet fused into a vast Whole…within the immensity of the World Soul." Dorothea Waley Singer, 'Giordano Bruno, His Life and Thought'

3 "Teaching is not a matter of something being placed in one person by another, but is a question of eliciting something that is already present, although only implicitly and latently, at hidden depths of the individual's mind." Ira Progoff (b. 1921), 'The Symbolic and the Real'

4 "I look upon death to be as necessary to the constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning." Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), American statesman, scientist and philosopher, letter to a friend

5 "All are one in our common humanity." H. B. Blavatsky, interview in London, 1887

6 "This day before dawn I ascended a hill and looked at the crowded heaven. And I said to my spirit, When we become the enfolders of those orbs, and the pleasure and knowledge of everything in them, shall we be filled and satisfied then? And my spirit said, No, we but level that lift to pass and continue beyond." Walt Whitman, 'Leaves of Grass'

7 "The principles of the successive phases of Spirit are themselves only steps in the development of one universal Spirit." G. W. F. Hegel (1770-1831), German philosopher

8 "The soul of man is immortal…is never destroyed." Plato, 'Meno'

9 "We may adduce the transcendental hypothesis, that all life is properly intelligible, and not subject to the changes of time, and that it neither began in birth, nor will end in death….If we could see ourselves and other objects as they really are, we should see ourselves in a world of spiritual natures, our community with which neither began at our birth nor will end with the death of the body." Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), German philosopher, 'Critique of Pure Reason', Part II: I, iii

10 "Philosophically viewed, the whirling wheel and its ever motionless center can be a potent symbol of the human struggle toward insight and harmony…..Only in the still center of the imperishable Self is true perspective apparently achieved."

11 "Deity is the One Universal SELF." Editors

12 "Virgin birth, infant god, the holy one violently killed, yet resurrected – these are repeated themes in the history of world religions…These repetitions are reinforcing examples of the universal religious impulse and of the way man seeks to represent the cycle of death and rebirth that runs through all of nature." Bradford Smith, Columbia University professor

13 "There is somewhat of the absolute and eternal in every human soul…something that transcends time and space and organic form, and makes eternity for the soul to be the continuous unfolding of a perpetual and indestructible principle of life." William J. Potter (1830-1893), Unitarian minister, article in 'The Radical', April 1868

14 "Never during its pilgrimage is the spirit of man completely adrift and alone. From start to finish its nucleus is the Atman – the self-luminous abiding point, boundless as the sky, indivisible, absolute, the only reality." Huston Smith, 'Karma, Rebirth and Freewill'

15 "Every movement that returns to its point of origin must adopt the form of a circle. Only circular movement is continuous and consistent. Every object of nature is, then, a circle, whose function and activity derive from its center point, which is the soul." Dr. Felix Marti-Ibanez, 'Centaur, Essays on the History of Medical Ideas'

16 "Every soul brings a kind of sense with it into the world, whereby it tastes and relishes what is suitable to its peculiar temper [temperament]." Joseph Glanville (1636-1680, chaplain to King Charles II), 'Lux Orientalis'

17 "One earns a vision by living it, not merely thinking about it." Herbert Fingarette (b. 1921), American philosopher and psychologist, 'The Self in Transformation'

18 "It is not really the ears or eyes that hear or see…The sense-organs are instruments the Self uses for Itself….The Self is here right before us in full revelation." D. T. Suzuki, 'Self the Unattainable'

19 "In the circle, which comprehends in itself the beginning and the end, we have the figure of true being; and circular motion is the only enduring form of motion. From this Spirit, which is called the Life of the Universe, proceed the life and soul of everything which has soul and life." Giordano Bruno (1548-1600), Italian philosopher and poet, answer at his trial before the Inquisitor in Venice, May 1592, quoted by I. Firth in "Life of Giordano Bruno, Boston 1887, p. 123

20 "Our Essence of Mind (literally, self-nature) which is the seed or kernel of enlightenment is pure by nature." Hui Neng (6th Zen patriarch, 6th century ad)

21 "That which is 'essential' in the universe is eternal and indestructible; permanent through all the transitory appearances of things. That which is essential in the universe passes, by evolution, from the unconscious to the conscious. Individual consciousness is an integral part of that which is essential in the universe and itself indestructible and eternal, it evolves from unconsciousness to consciousness." Gustave Geley (1868-1924), French psychologist and physician, 'From the Unconscious to the Conscious'

22 "Do you know who you are? One's whole being is Buddha-nature. One's whole being is the Great Way…Mind is the essential substance of all Buddhas." Bassui Tokusho (1327-1387), letter to a man from Kumasaka

23 ""Thou art from old, O Soul of man, yea, thou art from everlasting." Egyptian Hermetic Fragments

24 "Leibniz held with Bruno that each monadic center – whether an atom, a man, or a sun – is a mirror and replica of the entire cosmos, as well as the moving power in evolution." Editors

25 "Each religion has its own method of realisation whereby the ultimate reality, the final self, the integrating principle is reached." D. T. Suzuki, 'What Is Shin Buddhism?",

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
