THE GLORIOUS PRESENCE
Ernest E. Wood
An explanation of the Vedanta Philosophy, including Shankara's Ode to the South-facing Form.

1 "Everything depends upon everything else, and, in fact, IS everything else as well as itself."

2 "The Vedanta Philosophy has as its basis the belief that the universe of our experience is only one reality and it can be known."

3 "Everything that occurs is worthy of our most appreciative attention, since it is in some way Brahman."

4 "Somehow everything is Brahman. We have constantly to remind ourselves of this piece of knowledge and then we shall value our present experience."

5 "A man does not understand anything unless he loves it." Goethe

6 "A breath of Will blows eternally through the universe of souls in the direction of the Right and Necessary. It is the air which all intellects inhale and exhale, and it is the wind which blows the world into order and orbit." Ralph Waldo Emerson

7 "That the whole world is constituted of the One Reality is one of the essential principles of Vedantic thought."

8 "This belief that our world is one indivisible thing is held by modern scientists today, and they come very near to proving it also – at least nothing ever happens to create a doubt of its truth….the world of our experience is in some way one."

9 "The whole universe is in a flow of universal in-fluence in which everything is in some degree potent in everything else."

10 "The earth is honey for all beings; all beings are honey for the earth also -…It is the self, the immortal, Brahman, all. Just as all the spokes of a cartwheel are fixed in the nave and the circumference, so are all beings fitted in the self, which is without before or after, or inside or outside, the knower of all." Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, II, 5

11 "There is no complete error, no complete ignorance – ever. In the world what resists us helps us, as the ground which obstructs our feet, but is necessary in walking. There is no escape from the self."

12 "The one cause – which is the Whole – is what existence is and what we are."

13 "There is something marvellous in the power within a seed, and when that seed is the human soul, containing the powers of will, thought and love, no one should dare to measure its possibilities by an undeveloped imagination…it is for him to be his own gardener, to understand his own destiny, and to make his circumstances assist him in its swift achievement."

14 "Being IS unity."

15 "Greece, Rome, Chaldea, Peru, Egypt and all live now in us. Their material triumphs have turned to dust, their old languages are dead, but the gain of character that was achieved by those ancient labors is ours now and forever."

16 "God or the One Reality is the material cause of all things…the substance of all things is that One."

17 "Anyone who is intent upon knowing the One Reality finds the One Reality everywhere."

18 "In that fullness of unity the whole is fully present in the part."

19 "The whole reflects into every part."

20 "We are brothers; sons of one sweet mother."

21 "The aim is direct knowledge of the One Reality, and the process begins with the hearing of testimony, goes on to reasoning, and ends with direct vision of the truth of the statement or experience being pondered on."

22 "If I were to try to name the new era, I would say it is characterized, whether consciously or not, by an inward-rising feeling of sympathy and companionship with other men and all things."

23 "One thing is sure – all is one; the world, mind and all."

24 "Love is a kind of knowledge, an awareness of other lives. With it we begin to live in others, and cannot ignore the wounded bird or the lost child."

25 "I see that when souls reach a certain clearness of perfection, they accept a knowledge and motive above selfishness." Ralph Waldo Emerson

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
