"The doctrine of the microcosm – the human as the universe in miniature – is a common theme among the esoteric teachings, and among its other qualities, this idea has the virtue of theoretically joining the inner life in all its possible levels to the world of nature and beyond, even up to the Creator."

EXPERIENCING THE SOUL
Eliot Jay Rosen, editor
Essays on experiencing the Soul by The Dalai Lama, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Jean Houston, Ram Dass, Gerald Jampolsky, and many others.

1 "I believe that on a higher level, everyone embodies the archetypal aspects of Jesus, Krishna, Mohammed, et cetera. These archetypes of our ideals serve to heal our sense of soul-loss. They help us remember a part of us that we often forget about in everyday life." Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., 'The Soul and Quantum Physics'

2 "What we call 'God' continues to create – with infinite intelligence – every billionth of a billionth of a second, now, and for billions and billions of years to come. What is created with and in this perfect Intelligence reflects and modifies everything at every instant and at every level. This happens from the smallest electron to the largest galaxy – including all forms of life in the universe." Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., 'The Soul and Quantum Physics'

3 "Follow the universal principles that are stressed in the scriptures of both East and West. Let your mind dwell on: 'What can I do for others? How can I be honest, truthful, straightforward? How can I be kind? How can I be generous and unselfish?' These are principles that lead us Godward." Sri Daya Mata, disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, 'The Soul's Need for God'

4 "Love is always stronger than hate. The positive is always stronger than the negative. For me, it's nice to know that even though the world is in terrible shape with all the fighting, politics, and negativity going on, nothing is stronger than love." Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, 'Experiences of My Soul in Life and Death'

5 "The challenge of the next millennium will be to develop an adequate scientific understanding of consciousness itself....the door is always open to directly experiencing this universal consciousness for ourselves." Dr. Amit Goswami, teacher of theoretical physics, 'How Consciousness Creates the Material Universe'

6 "Our true mind is not restricted to our intellectual or cognitive power, but is a fundamental goodness or 'good heart' that is at the core of every being." Christine Longaker, founding director of the Buddhist Rigpa Fellowship, 'What Counts at the Moment of Death'

7 "Between those two points, from the Big Bang, at the beginning of time – to the Big Crunch, at the end of time – all the matter in the universe appears, expands to a maximum point, and then contracts again into nothing. And through it all, an ultimate intelligence – call it what you will – guides and directs the various activities of everything in the universe – including all living life forms – in unfathomable, unseen ways." Fred Alan Wolf, Ph. D., 'The Soul and Quantum Physics'

8 "Each child is created in the special image and likeness of God for greater things - to love and to be loved." Mother Teresa

9 "Soul is eternal; its language is metaphor, which belongs in this moment and in the timeless, spaceless moment." Marion Woodman, 'From Psyche to Soul - The Healing Power of Archetypes'

10 "Truly the face you see of the person in front of you is none other than your own,…we're all altars of the Divine One." Joan Borysenko, Ph. D., 'Glimpses of Eternity – My Mother's Last Gift Upon Her Passing'

11 "'Know ye not…that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?' (1 Corinthians 3:16). Indeed it does; we are part of Him! We think that WE are beating these hearts, that WE are taking in this oxygen, that WE are running these bodies. No, it is GOD who is doing all of this." Sri Daya Mata, disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, 'The Soul's Need for God'

12 "We who dwell on this earth belong to one humanity; There is but one God, and we are His children." Sant Darshan Singh, 'The Cry of the Soul'

13 "All beings are connected. We are all children of one parent, our Creator." Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, 'Experiences of My Soul in Life and Death'

14 "In the painting 'Universal Mind Lattice', which was based on a mystical visionary experience, I was part of one vast luminescent, transparent lattice system of love energy. It was as if the veil of supposed 'reality' had been stripped from the material world to expose the bedrock reality, the scaffolding of spirit. I understood it as the intricate interconnectedness of the one and the many, on a level of awareness that was infinite and eternal. This was the ethical ground of compassion, where all beings and things are known to be part of us." Alex Grey, American visionary artist, 'The Visionary Art of Alex Grey'

15 "The human heart can go to the length of God….Dark and cold we may be, but this is not winter now….The frozen misery of centuries, cracks, breaks, begins to move….The thunder is the thunder of the float of the flow of the upstart Spring….Thank God our time is now….when wrong comes up to meet us everywhere….Never to leave us 'til we take the longest stride of soul folk ever took….Affairs are now soul-sized….The enterprise is exploration into God….What are you waiting for?....It takes many thousands of years to wake….But will you wake, for pity's sake?" Christopher Fry, 'Sleep of Prisoners'

16 "As someone who has lived with many traditional cultures around the world, I have found that every one of these cultures supports the belief that life is continuous – that there is part of the self that simply does not die when it's the body's time to go." Jean Houston, Ph.D., 'We Are Citizens of a Multidimensional Universe'

17 "By using archetypal symbols that resonate on a universal level, art can evoke the complete range of possible life experiences, including the boundless nature of our souls." Alex Grey

18 "Humans are loved by God beyond our comprehension, and we will feel how blessed we are when we learn compassion instead of judgment, empathy instead of pity, and realize that this life in the physical body is a very small part of our total existence." Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, 'Experiences of My Soul in Life and Death'

19 "Death is simply a shedding of the physical body like the butterfly shedding its cocoon. It is a transition to a higher state of consciousness where you continue to perceive, to understand, to laugh, and to be able to grow." Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, 'Experiences of My Soul in Life and Death'

20 "The essence of our being is love." Gerald Jampolsky, 'Attitudinal Healing - The Essence of Our Being Is Love'

21 "Oh, God, what's it all about? In my view, even blackness and despair has been designed into God's system. You may not completely believe or even remember this in this moment, but on some level, a part of you has actually created all of it." Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., 'The Soul and Quantum Physics'

22 "When I look into the eyes of children, I see their divine origin." Sarah Hinze, author, 'Meeting the Souls of Our Children Before Birth'

23 "The universe is extraordinarily vast and complex, and at the same time, it seems to have this seamless web of interconnectivity and kinship. We are indeed participants in a much larger life." Jean Houston, Ph.D., 'We Are Citizens of a Multidimensional Universe'

24 "What a vast world of love and joy is within the soul! We don't have to acquire it; it is already ours." Sri Daya Mata, disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, 'The Soul's Need for God'

25 "Let's practice what Christ taught, what Buddha taught, what Krishna taught – love for God and for God in every being. We need to spread the universality of God's love, of God's light – by our own example, by how we live our lives….That Divine Love is the most powerful force in the universe." Sri Daya Mata, disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, 'The Soul's Need for God'

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
