"All that is auspicious, blessed, and beautiful is inherent in every human individual, like a great towering tree with its spreading branches, height, fruits, foliage, and flower is inherent in a tiny little seed. This message is the central content of the teachings of all the prophets, the messiahs, the messengers of God that have come and taught from time to time in different parts of the world."

AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A YOGI
Paramahansa Yogananda
This book has become a classic in its field, revealing the scientific foundation underlying the great religious paths of both East and West. It has been used as a text at over 100 colleges and universities.

1 "The divine eye is center everywhere, circumference nowhere."

2 "The human mind is a spark of the almighty consciousness of God." Sri Yukteswar, Paramahansa Yogananda's spiritual teacher

3 "As all things can be reflected in water, so the whole universe is mirrored in the lake of the Cosmic Mind." Mahasaya, Indian spiritual teacher

4 "The Spirit of God, I realized, is exhaustless Bliss; His body is countless tissues of light."

5 "God, the Sole Life, is Absolute Unity."

6 "Thou art I, I am Thou….Knowing, Knower, Known, as One!" Paramahansa Yogananda, 'Samadhi'

7 "To find the Divine One, the only indispensable is Love." Mirabai, medieval Rajputani princess

8 "Divine love is without condition, without boundary, without change."

9 "The more deeply we perceive, the more striking becomes the evidence that a uniform plan links every form in manifold nature." J. C. Bose, Indian physicist and botanist

10 "The broad sympathies and discerning insight needed for the healing of earthly woes cannot flow from a mere intellectual consideration of human diversities, but from knowledge of men's deepest unity – kinship with God."

11 "Vast worlds lie within the hollows of each atom, multifarious as the motes in a sunbeam." 'Yoga Vasishtha' (ancient Indian treatise)

12 "I own that I have an immovable faith in God and His goodness, and an unconsumable passion for truth and love. But is that not what every person has latent in him?" Mahatma Gandhi

13 "No effort is complete without prayer, without a definite recognition that the best human endeavor is of no effect if it has not God's blessing behind it. Prayer is a call to humility. It is a call to self-purification, to inward search." Mahatma Gandhi

14 "Only One exists."

15 "God…is eternal, ever-new Joy!"

16 "The time-tested scriptures of the world are one in essence."

17 "God created each man as a soul, dowered with individuality, hence essential to the universal structure….His freedom is final and immediate, if he so wills; it depends not on outer but inner victories."

18 "I see humanity now as one vast plant, needing for its highest fulfillments only love." Luther Burbank, American botanist

19 "When everything is known as the Self, not even an atom is seen as other than the Self." Shankara

20 "Religion is universal and it is one. We cannot possibly universalize particular customs and conventions; but the common element in religion can be universalized."

21 "All parts of creation are linked together and interchange their influences. The balanced rhythm of the universe is rooted in reciprocity." Sri Yukteswar, Indian spiritual teacher

22 "If prophets down the millenniums spake with truth, man is essentially a soul, incorporeal and omnipresent."

23 "All creative scientists know that the true laboratory is the mind, where behind illusions they uncover the laws of truth." J. C. Bose, Indian physicist and botanist

24 "I believe like every Hindu in God and His oneness." Mahatma Gandhi,

25 "He who has surrounded us with this ever-evolving mystery of creation has implanted in us the desire to question and understand." J. C. Bose, Indian physicist and botanist

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
