THE SOUL AFIRE, REVELATIONS OF THE MYSTICS
H. A. Reinhold, editor

1 "I am a man by nature, and God by the grace of God." Symeon the Younger (949-1022), mystic of the Eastern Church

2 "In One is all my peace." Angelus Silesius

3 "In that spiritual home where the Uncreated, the Formless, the Ineffable, keeps the soul infinitely removed from all the specific detail of created shadows and atoms, we remain calm even when our senses are the prey of the tempest." Fr. J. P. deCaussade, S.J. (1675-1751), French teacher

4 "God comprises all things." 'The Book of the Poor in Spirit'

5 “When with her pure intellect now illumined with divine light, the naked soul sees God, then she knows herself.” Meister Eckhart (1260-1327)

6 "Whoever loves something fervently and with all his strength….he will never forget what he so loves, and in all things he will see the Image of the One, and he will see it within him more clearly as his love grows deeper and deeper." Meister Eckhart (1260-1327)

7 "What, then, is real virtue? Anything wrought in the soul by divine love alone." Meister Eckhart (1260-1327),

8 "Eternal Wisdom: My love is of that sort which is not diminished in unity, nor confounded in multiplicity. I am as entirely concerned and occupied with you alone, with the thought how I may at all times love you alone, and fulfill everything that appertains to you, as though I were wholly disengaged from all other things." Henry Suso (1295-1366), German mystic

9 "There was talk of a man who wanted to begin his life anew and I spoke in this way: man shall become a seeker of God in all things, and a finder of God at all times, and everywhere and among all people and in every way. And therein one can always and incessantly wax and grow and there shall be no end of waxing." Meister Eckhart (1260-1327)

10 "The presence, the participation of God, His being in the midst of us, His dwelling within us, are all approximate expressions of His intimacy with us…We may say that in Him is our life, our activity, our being." Don Luigi Sturzo (1871-1959), Italian social reformer

11 "The concept of blessedness is graven in our spirit and through it, we know and we say concerning ourselves, in perfect certainty that is beyond all doubt: we want to be blessed." St. Augustine (b.354)

12 "Every day and every hour God is truly and spiritually begotten in our souls by grace and love." John Tauler (1300-1361),

13 "The power and the constancy of God's eternal kingdom cannot be destroyed by the impact of unsteadfast mutability." St. Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179), Abbess, visionary

14 "Eternal Wisdom: 'I go forth to meet those who seek Me, and I receive with affectionate joy such as desire My love. All that you can ever experience of My sweet love in time is but as a little drop to the ocean of My love in eternity." Henry Suso (1295-1366), German mystic

15 “St. Augustine says: ‘God is a most simple being, and yet He works in a most manifold way, being all things in each single thing, and one in all of them together.” Blesed John Tauler (1300-1361), Dominican scholar

16 “The Soul sees in the Divine light how considerately, and with what unfailing providence, God is ever leading it to its full perfection, and that He does it all through pure love.” St. Catherine of Genoa (1447-1510), sister of the Annunciation Order

17 “Let us love one another with a sincere heart.” Roman Missal

18 "This being (God) is life itself, light, wisdom, goodness, eternal blessedness and blessed eternity; and it is everywhere and always." St. Anselm of Canterbury (b. 1033), Archbishop and philosopher

19 "It [the soul] could and should abide in God, in God alone! God above all graces, God above every cross!" Lucie Christine, French mystic, author

20 "And this is the true end set before the soul, to take that light, to see the Supreme by the Supreme and not by the light of any other principle – to see the Supreme which is also the means to the vision, for that which illumines the soul is that which it is to see, just as it is by the sun's own light that we see the sun." Plotinus (203-269ad), Alexandrian Neo-Platonist

21 "God exists in all things, not as a part of their essence or as one of their accidents, but He exists in them as an agent is present in that which it works upon…Hence God is in all things, and is intimately in them." St. Thomas Aquinas (1226-1274)

22 "Indeed in no being is it possible to discover a nature so independent that it could exist without partaking in that one and only true being." St. Gregory of Nyssa,

23 "Eternal Wisdom: My beloved ones are encompassed by My love, and are absorbed into the One Thing alone without imaged love and without spoken words, and are taken and infused into that good out of which they flowed." Henry Suso (1295-1366), German mystic

24 "In this embrace, in the essential Unity of God, all inward spirits are one with God in the immersion of love; and are that same one which the Essence is in Itself, according to the mode of Eternal Bliss." John Ruysbroeck (1293-1381), Dutch mystic

25 "Whatsoever is good shall no one take unto himself as his own, seeing that it belongs to the Eternal Goodness only." Theologia Germanica, 14th century

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
