"The [Buddhist] Doctrine of Mutual Arising..implies that no one – nobody and no thing – is to blame for anything that ever occurs, because all is mutually arising….You and your enemies; you and your friends: all parts of the one thing, one wreath: 'thing and thing: no division.' This, surely, is sublime."

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW: PATHS TO SPIRITUAL RENEWAL IN DAILY LIFE
Ronald S. Miller and the editors of New Age Journal

1 "We can listen to the voice of the Earth as she shakes and sings her song expressing her tiredness. She is calling us to attention, to be alert, to recognize that now is the time to transform selfish thought and action to compassionate caretaking. Do we want a world of peace and harmony? Are we willing to make that peace within ourselves? Will we call it forth? It is your choice. Your thought and action make a difference." Dhyani Ywahoo, Cherokee teacher

2 "When we extend awareness and identify with other animals, mountains, and rivers, we are realizing the ecological self, the transpersonal mode of being that interconnects us with all of life."

3 "Empathy increases our sensitivity to other people so that we know their essence. Describing this practice, French writer Honore deBalzac writes, 'Listening to people talking I could enter into their lives, feel their tattered clothes on my back, walk with my feet in their shoes; their desires, their needs, all passed into my soul, or my soul passed into theirs.'"

4 "Works like the Zohar, the 'bible' of Kabbalistic lore, stress over and over that all the various dimensions of existence are intimately interwoven." Edward Hoffman

5 "There is but One Life and Law: and he that worketh it is One. Nothing is inner, nothing is outer; nothng is great, nothing is small; nothing is high, nothing is low, in the Divine Economy." Hermetic Axiom

6 "To transcend mind in Spirit is not to lose mind or destroy mind but merely to include mind in the higher order wholeness of the superconscient." Ken Wilber

7 "God is so omnipresent….that God is an angel in an angel, and a stone in a stone, and a straw in a straw." John Donne

8 "The destiny of the world is determined less by the battles that are lost and won than by the stories it loves and believes in." Harold Goddard

9 "Instead of understanding the world in parts, we need to think about the whole." Wes Jackson

10 "The One and the many, time and eternity, are all One." Reshad Field, Sufi scholar, 'Steps to Freedom'

11 "All the religions fit together into an organic whole, and we need the contribution of each tradition for the health and renewal of our world." Reb Zalman

12 "As human beings we are made to surpass ourselves and are truly ourselves only when transcending ourselves." Huston Smith

13 "The underlying matrix unites all life forms in an unbroken community of species."

14 "In keeping with the Gaia Hypothesis, formulated by English scientist James Lovelock, deep ecologists view the world as a living organism whose many species make up a single breathing entity."

15 "Myth is a kind of lensing system for the mind of God. It carries the codings of existence." Jean Houston

16 "I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve." Albert Schweitzer

17 "As a culture-wide paradigm shift makes its presence felt, people are searching frantically for a New Story to give their lives meaning….the New Story involves our reunion with the natural world, based on the interconnectedness of all living systems."

18 "The environment responds to our thought and feeling. It is for humans to be aware of how our thought, word, and deed affect the environment. One person filled with doubt and anger may wilt the flowers; another person's enthusiasm is such that cut flowers last for weeks." Dhyani Ywahoo, Cherokee teacher

19 "Deep ecology is supported by modern science…but it is rooted in a perception of reality that goes beyond the scientific framework to an intuitive awareness of the oneness of all life, the interdependence of its multiple manifestations and its cycles of change and transformation." Fritjof Capra, 'The Turning Point'

20 "Creative choice is your birthright. Please own it." John Bradshaw

21 "The marvelous reveals itself in the mundane; in the garden, the park, the vacant lot, the desert. You see it in the sudden appearance of a cluster of fungus on a tree after a week of rain or at home dusting off furniture, revealing the surface underneath. To really see through, you must believe it is possible to do so and then simply do it! Before long, life becomes an experience of constant revelation." June Singer, 'Seeing Through the Visible World'

22 "The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us."

23 "The present moment is a powerful goddess." Goethe

24 "According to the late mythologist Joseph Campbell, mythic tales reconnect us to the trnascendent source that undergirds daily life, while disconnection from this realm invites anxiety and soul sickness."

25 "Meditative insight reveals that this personal self is co-extensive with everything else in creation – the atmosphere we breathe, the trees that oxygenate the atmosphere, and the sun that fuels the Earth's energy processes."

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
