COVENANT OF THE HEART, MEDITATIONS OF A CHRISTIAN HERMETICIST ON THE MYSTERIES OF TRADITION
Valentin Tomberg
The power of these meditations is that they reflect the author's personal spiritual journey into the depths of God's kingdom within...within the soul, within personal relations, within nature, within the cosmos.

1 "The decade (10 Sephiroth) of existence out of nothing has its end linked to its beginning and its beginning linked to its end, just as the flame is wedded to the live coal; because the Lord is one and there is not a second one." The Sepher Yetzirah, the Book of Creation, L. H. Frank 1877, p. 16

2 "Faith is not simply a matter of holding something to be true but of experiencing the breath of eternal God, bestowing being."

3 "The world of the senses, the kingdoms of nature, testify to the all-pervasive wisdom of God."

4 "There are many levels of freedom. But the highest is that of love."

5 "The Creator is simultaneously knowing, the knower, and that which is known. In fact, His manner of knowing does not consist in Him directing His thinking to things that are outside of Him; in that He Himself thinks and is knowing. He knows of everything and sees everything which is. Nothing exists that is not one with Him and which does not subsist in His own substance. He is the prototype of every being, and all beings are in Him in their purest and complete form, so that the perfection of created beings actually exists in the mind of that Perfect One." Moses of Cordova, 'Commentary to the Zohar', Pardies Rimmonium, 55a

6 "God is eternal Being. And the true self of man is eternally coming into being as the breath of life from eternal Being. The Self of man rests in the breath of the Godhead."

7 "The state of the risen Jesus Christ is the goal and the hope of the path of destiny of mankind. It is the most perfect ideal of which one could ever think or dream."

8 "Just as the plurality of the human soul's life of imagination, feeling, and will has a focus, a center, around which it orders and orientates itself, so also does the multiplicity of the appearances of the world have ONE center, which orders and holds everything together."

9 "God…is the center of all selves."

10 Love is the foundation, the meaning, and the purpose of the world."

11 "Intuition is the faculty of knowledge which results from instinct that is illumined by reason."

12 "From the very beginning, man was created as a bearer of love. He is not simply homo sapiens, but over and above this he is potentially homo amans."

13 "Not only Genesis, but also the Bhagavad Gita, speaks of the law of repeated impulses of the divine spirit intervening in order to maintain the level of intensity of the original life-impuse of the world."

14 "Impulses of will are immersed in the streams of world-will-energy and are 'plugged in' to them."

15 "God wills it that man may fulfill his earthly experience and task, even when they have been interrupted by death."

16 "The being or substance of the true self of man, the breath of life, which is breathed out by God, is the breath of love, of God's love, which is the origin – and also the very being itself – of the life of the soul."

17 "Through the world of temporal existence there streams the breath of the presence of eternal being."

18 "God is not a phenomenon that exists alongside other phenomena. He is the very source of 'selfness', more intimate and more inward than the most intimate and most inward that we know."

19 "Always, in all eternity, there will exist for each and every being a creative work and a field for creative work."

20 "Oneness or unity encompasses all numbers, and all numbers should be reduced back to unity."

21 "Moral logic, the logic of divine wisdom,…comes about in the human being from the union – or even fusion – of the thinking of head and heart."

22 ""It is impossible for a peaceful and concentrated reader (i.e., for a meditative reader) of the Gospels not to begin to love the person of Jesus Christ, and also not to sense him as a working and actual reality."

23 "Just as the seed determines the future ways and stages of growth, so the Good Shepherd decides the ways of development of the true being of mankind and leads them along these ways."

24 "Just as the human being needs the air to breathe for his physical life, so he also has need of breathing in God – through prayer and meditation – for his soul life."

25 "The moral law inscribed in the human soul – Kant's categorical imperative – signifies the reality of the presence in the human being of what the Bible calls the 'image and likeness of God', that is, the principal archetype of Man."

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
