Dane Rudhyar
Musical composer, poet, philosopher, astrologer, Dane Rudhyar explores in this book humanity's experience and potential of being participants in the act of Creation.

1 "Archetypes are a specific pattern of relationships and a particular set of biopsychic possibilities of development of consciousness."

2 "Each human 'culture-whole' contributes its own harvest of values and meanings – expressed through symbols, creative works and institutions – to the planetary consciousness and the one Mind of Man."

3 "God is love…..love as a clear creative answer to the need of the world."

4 "Mind does not operate as the servant of the egos of individuals, or of any situations in historical time or local space. It operates in terms of the evolution of the entire system – and in relation to the galactic whole of which this heliocosm is but a small cellular unit. It operates in terms of planetary consciousness."

5 "Compassionate love…gradually releases humanity as a whole from bondage to the thought of separateness and to the seeming inevitability of conflict and war. It is a unifying power. It integrates the essential realities of individuals, groups, and nations by consuming in its fire the nonessentials which produce division and hatred. It seeks to reconstitute at the conscious level of mature personalities the primordial unconscious unity of the tribe state, and to reconstitute it in total inclusiveness. Tribal unanimity was exclusive of all other tribes; but transcendent love is boundary-transcending, culture-transcending, creed-transcending. Its goal is the 'One World' of a truly organized, global humanity."

6 "There are infinite possibilities of solutions to the problems of existence."

7 "In the operation of any whole organism, every function is essential and valuable. There should be no question of 'superior' or 'inferior'….In an organic democracy every cell and organ – every individual and every healthfully operating group and situation – is equally important, necessary, and to be protected as well as valued."

8 "Order, meaning, beauty and the inner sustainment arising from the conviction that one has a place and function to perform within a vast planetary process whose essential nature is rhythm and harmony regardless of the grinding noise of passing dissonances – what could be more valuable for men, women and children of our civilization?"

9 "At the core of the basic teachings found in all or most of the world's religions which have left visible and intelligible records, there exists a Universal Tradition."

10 "As I see it, what really matters are not fascinating details to be memorized by the curious mind, but the gaining of a whole view of cosmic, planetary, and human evolution. It is to be able to 'see' or even feel this evolution, with its interconnecting cycles and subcycles, microcosmic as well as macrocosmic."

11 "In every individual person the whole of the universe and the full essence of divinity is latent."

12 "A really holistic approach must be able not only to produce concepts that embrace a totality of data or experiences and reveal their internal 'form', but it must release vibrant and potentially transforming ideas infused with the love of Man."

13 "The pattern of man is a microcosmic reflection of the pattern of the great cosmos."

14 "Faith is the intuitive, unchallengeable, even if intellectually unexplainable, feeling-realization that the Ocean of Infinite Potentiality surounds us; we live, move and have our being in it."

15 "Diverse entities…have emerged from an original One in whom they can and eventually must be reabsorbed or reintegrated."

16 "Time is the structuring power which divides the universal world process into wholes within wholes within wholes."

17 "Mankind is moving toward what I call the state of 'multi-unity' – often referred to as 'unity in diversity'. Because of this cyclo-historical fact (which has a concrete manifestation in the technological wonders potentially enabling every human being to communicate with all others) individuals dream of, long for, unification or integration."

18 "The Earth in its total being is a vast, living, thinking organism in which ALL kingdoms of life perform interrelated and interdependent functions."

19 "All…had its origin in one germinating wholeness of being."

20 "Every need is always and forever balanced by a solution, and the power of this potential solution is 'spirit'. Spirit is the energy of the infinite potential of Space…There is only one Supreme Law: Everything is as the need for harmony requires. Everything acts in order to satisfy what, at the time and to the best of its knowledge, it feels it needs. Everything seeks to act according to its fundamental nature."

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
