"The prototypes of the images and forms utilized by the oneirocritic, poetic and prophetic idioms, can be found around us in Nature, revealing herself as a world of materialized dream, as a prophetic language whose hieroglyphics are beings and forms." Franz P. Schubert (1797-1828), Austrian composer, 'Symbolik des Traumes'

THE FABRIC OF THE FUTURE
M. J. Ryan, editor
Women visionaries illuminate the path to tomorrow.

1 "What will happen when the storytellers emerge? What will happen when 'the primal mind' sings of our common origin, our stupendous journey, our immense good fortune? We will become Earthlings. We will have evoked out of the depths of the human psyche those qualities enabling our transformation from disease to health. They will sing our epic of being, and stirring up from our roots will be a vast awe, an enduring gratitude, the astonishment of communion experiences, and the realization of cosmic adventure." Brian Swimme, 'Evolution Extended'

2 "There's a level on which we are all one consciousness, deeply connected to the one mass consciousness." Shakti Gawain, speaker/workshop leader, 'Moving Toward the New Millennium'

3 "Myth is always about soul-making and about the pathos that accompanies the journey of the soul as it travels from out-moded existence to the amplified life in the kingdom. Thus it has much to teach us about where we are right now and where we are headed." Jean Houston, 'Living in One's and Future Myths'

4 "Serving the global vision through our personal vision may change thousands if not millions of lives, and in turn change our world." Rama Vernon, President of the Center for International Dialogue, 'Manifesting the Vision'

5 "We are being invited to an opening of our hearts and a deeper awareness of our souls, to an experience of the energy of love which is, in fact, our essence and to infuse it into every arena of our existence. What this means, very simply, is that we need to love more. We are being called to more conscious love, more kinds of love, more capacity to love, more freedom to love, more valuing of love, more trusting that love will carry us to where we need to go, more capacity to feel love that is constantly being offered to us in a myriad of forms – by lovers and strangers, by plants and animals and trees, by flowers and children, and by the gentle Earth itself. We are being asked to become creators of the changes through which, subtly, and with beauty, our world will become ever more infused with love." Daphne Rose Kingma, 'A Profound Infusion of Love'

6 "Goodness is our inherent nature." Cheri Huber, Zen teacher, 'There Is Nothing Wrong with Us'

7 "We have a magnificent metaphor for the presence of love in our midst. Our fabulous technological ingenuity has created a world that is now linked by a pulsating electronic web, a global nervous system which demonstrates in a very concrete way that as a body of humanity we are all beautifully linked together, that we are all incredibly connected…… the real challenge now is for us to see that it is love that is truly the web of our connection, that we are all of a piece as human beings and spirits, that we share the same joys and woes, that we partake of the same eternal spiritual destiny." Daphne Rose Kingma, 'A Profound Infusion of Love'

8 "Everything in nature is cyclical and opposites are in balance. In the natural world you have opposites, like day and night, but they're not in opposition; they're complements to each other. They're part of one whole, and you have to have both. One isn't 'good' and the other 'evil'. The more that we can start to look at the world in this way again, the more integrated we can be." Starhawk, author and founding minister of the Covenant of the Goddess, 'Envisioning the Future'

9 "Just as everyone of us has a genetic code, so each of us has a genius code which holds our unique creativity….In our genius are the ideas, projects, and capacities needed to transform ourselves and our world." Barbara Marx Hubbard, 'Awakening to Our Genius, the Heroine's Journey'

10 "We inhabit a participatory universe, influencing and being influenced on a cellular level by everything that is around us." Dawna Markova, Ph.D., author and organizational mythologist, 'From Rut to River: Co-creating a Possible Future'

11 "The (mythic) stories of spiritual principals who are everywhere and all at once recalls the finding in quantum physics concerning the ways in which everything is part of everything else – every electron having knowledge and influence upon every other electron – and each one of us is ubiquitous throughout the great hologram that is our universe." Jean Houston, 'Living in One's and Future Myths'

12 "Before all else, know that we are always in deep and energetic transformation. Always." Z Budapest, 'Harmonizing with the Fates'

13 "In the old days, checking in with your soul was called 'prayer'. Daily prayer, in the morning and at night, is a time to turn your attention within. Teach the practice of prayer to your children; it's a mind-relaxing skill, and it allows the inner picture to synthesize. It doesn't matter what name you use for God; it only matters that you feel you are talking to God, to your conception of the divine. Then you will be linked with that energy. The flow will be with you." Z Budapest, 'Harmonizing with the Fates'

14 "Our inner development as persons comes about as we are able to bear the wholeness of the opposites, to experience them as mutually completing, as interdependent and interpenetrating, in some sense simultaneous. To see them, in other words, as alive, moving, and interweaving, like the distinct and yet interflowing rivers that course through the oceans." Mary Caroline Richards, poet and teacher, 'Separating and Connecting: The Vessel and the Fire'

15 "Over the last several centuries we have moved steadily through the various epochs of our human evolution – from survival and conquest to rational thought and technological grandeur. Our frontier, now, is our own inner being – discovering our spiritual essence, accessing the love that resides in each of us, and offering it as a gift to the world." Daphne Rose Kingma, 'A Profound Infusion of Love'

16 "Increasing numbers of us have heard the Gaian voice and seen in our experience ways of being together that celebrate and affirm life. More and more we are in conversations where we speak of the great forces of life – love, purpose, soul, spirit, freedom, courage, integrity, meaning. The new story is being born in these conversations. We are learning to give voice to a different and fuller sense of who we are." Margaret J. Wheatley, 'Reclaiming Gaia, Reclaiming Life'

17 "When we are being who we are and honestly living with inspired integrity, we automatically inspire the imaginations of everyone we encounter." Jamie Sams, 'Messages for the Women of the Millennium'

18 "What we are trying to do, all of us now in these times, is to uncover our depths, to get past the vacuum, to have the courage to cleanse, purify, prepare our souls for the difficult task of becoming an instrument through which the Source may play its great music in time and space. As hero/heroines, we are all now the agents for the next dispensation, the inspiration for the bringing of culture and consciousness to its next possibility. Because the hero/heroine's journey is always about the deepening of culture, the universe in its unfolding enters more fully into the local culture. As such, we are agents of the entelechy, the great purpose of life." Jean Houston, 'Living in One's and Future Myths'

19 "Those like James Hillman and others in the school of archetypal psychology are suggesting something that the ancient neo-Platonists knew – certainly the Gnostics knew – that it is not psyche which exists in us but we who exist in psyche. And that the life of psyche is existent within the realm of God." Jean Houston, 'Living in One's and Future Myths'

20 "Now we are being called upon to expand our definition of love, to understand it and embody it in all of its richness and complexity." Daphne Rose Kingma, 'A Profound Infusion of Love'

21 "The only way to come home to spirit is to allow our love nature, Eros, to be stronger than fear. Easy to say, difficult to practice. We need to bless those who challenge us to be fully loving; they mirror to us where we may withhold our love by being close-hearted, half-hearted, and weak-hearted. They are great teachers for us, and remind us that the greatest remorse for human beings is love unexpressed." Angeles Arrien, 'Transformation in the Millennium'

22 "The ancient Sanskrit metaphor of Indra's Net and the modern formulation of quantum physics remind us that we are all woven together. The human challenge is to become fully aware of, full participants in, and fully conscious co-creators of the historic, the mythic, and the unitive realms, especially in times like ours when we are invited by the very depths of being to become co-creators of the future. As Zora Neale Hurston has said, 'There are years that ask questions and years that answer them.' I would add that these are the times. We are the people. And we are living in the answering years." Jean Houston, 'Living in One's and Future Myths'

23 "We are all beautifully interwoven into a single consciousness." Daphne Rose Kingma, 'A Profound Infusion of Love'

24 "When White Buffalo Calf Woman came among us bringing the Sacred Pipe which represents wholeness and holiness – the respectful honoring of our unity with all things – she reminded us of its importance for the continuance of Life itself. Ken Carey in 'Return of the Bird Tribes' brings us her words: 'Creation does not take place where there is a scattering and dissipation of energies,' she explained, 'Creation requires a gathering together and focusing of your power within a circle of commitment – like a seed, an egg, a womb or a marriage. If you would create and not destroy, you must remember always the Sacred Hoop. Consider wisely the ways in which you would use your power and then around those ways draw the sacred circle of commitment. In the warm atmosphere of that circle, the power of love builds and builds like a storm above the wet summer prairie until the circle can hold no more and explodes in the conception of the new." Brooke Medicine Eagle, Native American healer, 'Creating a Path of Beauty'

25 "We are opening our senses to the web of relationships, the deep ecology, in which we have our being. Like our primordial ancestors, we begin again to see the world as our body and (whether we say the word or not) as sacred." Joanna Macy, Ph.D., 'The Great Turning'

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
