THE COSMIC WOMB, AN INTERPRETATION OF MAN'S RELATIONSHIP TO THE INFINITE
Arthur W. Osborn

1 "The self in us is fundamentally the Universal Self, the Supreme Brahman, the God within each of us and in all creatures."

2 "In love we witness the operation of a law of spiritual gravitation; and like physical gravitation it is a ubiquitous force which cements the universe into a harmonious unity of functioning. To describe love only in terms of emotion is to miss the universal impersonal truth it expresses."

3 "All sequences in time must be related to the ultimate timeless Source, the wholeness in which we live and have our being."

4 "That which is One projects 'otherness' as a mirror of Self-knowing."

5 "Every particular is embraced within a whole, and every whole extends beyond itself to other wholes, circles within circles and so on ad infinitum."

6 "Whoever cannot find a temple in his heart, the same can never find his heart in any temple." Mikhail Naimy, 'The Book of Mirdad'

7 "When our minds are stilled, the sense of the Infinite invades us; and not only are we embraced by It but paradoxically we find no distinction between It and all creatures. Unity is indivisible."

8 "The Maharshis and Siddhas, mighty Teachers of the past, exist inscrutably within the radiant Being. All are there, and he who worships one draws near to them all." Krishna Prem, 'The Yoga of the Bhagavad Gita'

9 "The power of love dissolves self-centeredness and brings the wisdom to act effectively in all situations."

10 "Much of our normal living is….permeated with intuitive insights. Deep within each of us is the conviction that love is better than hate; beauty better than ugliness; justice better than injustice."

11 "Each individual is a unique reflection of divinity."

12 "In many of the contexts the statement, 'Life is One', is meant to convey that life is a consciousness animating all forms."

13 "Lines converging from the base of a pyramid start from infinite points of diversity. The nearer the apex the closer they come to one another until at the summit they reach the point of unity. So it is that religions at the base exhibit irreconcilable differences and conflicts. But as they approach sight of the spiritual light of their origin, they, like converging lines within a pyramid, draw closer to one another until the supernal vision of the apex submerges all differences in unity."

14 "Wherever we scratch the phenomenal surface deeply enough, we strike the living water of unity."

15 "Deep within us there is a voice which, although quiet, steadily assures us that…there is a unifying Reality."

16 "Life is a process, a seamless garment, and there is a universal nexus connecting all phenomena so that every part pulsates sensitively to every other part."

17 "When he perceiveth the diversified existence of beings as rooted in One, and spreading forth from it, then he reaches the Eternal."

18 "What form of living is best?....There can be only one mode of living entitled to be called best. It is that which will prepare us to realize our oneness with infinite life. The operative word is 'realize'. It is a matter of knowing what already is a fact."

19 "Our intuition conveys the message that this universe could not exist unless held together by some unifying power and intelligence."

20 "We are consciously or unconsciously always embraced by the spiritual unity of the Universal Whole."

21 "The individual is a microcosm, in fact each of us is a replica of the Whole we call the Cosmos."

22 "The most intelligible view of the cosmos is that of a living Whole."

23 "Filled with Brahman are the things we see, filled with Brahman are the things we see not. From out of Brahman floweth all that is: from Brahman all – yet is he still the same."

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
