MYSTICS AFTER MODERNISM
Rudolf Steiner
'...reveals the naked essence of God-Consciousness with words that burn into the soul and annihilate the illusions of the separate self." Ikosmos.Com, leading website of integral spirituality

1 "With me it was as when a seed is hidden in the earth. Contrary to all reason, it grows up in storm and rough weather. In the winter, all is dead, and reason says, 'Everything is ended for it'. But the precious seed within me sprouted and grew green, oblivious of all storms." Jacob Boehme

2 "God appeared to me as the highest unity of all contrasts." Letter of Nicholas of Cusa to Cardinal Julianus

3 "The 'whole' comprises and embraces all beings. Without and outside this whole, there is no true being. All things have their being in the whole, for it is the essence of all things." Julius Pfeiffer, 'Theologia deutsch'

4 "Reason understands the laws of things – that is, spirit in nature. It can also raise itself above nature and, in the spirit, grasp from one side the divine essence underlying all nature."

5 "We read in the works of old sages the useful proverb 'know thyself'….People should look not only at themselves and think of how they should act toward others but also understand their inner and outer nature in spirit and nature – from which they come, are made of, and are intended for." Valentin Weigel (1553-1588), mystical writer, 'Know Thyself'

6 "We become what we know. This is a process of awakening to the self. But it is not a little self, but a self that is ultimately one with the universe. Thou art that, 'Tat Tvam asi', as the Hindus say. Our self expands. With it, our consciousness is raised, our understanding is deepened. This is an infinite process." Christopher Bamford, foreword

7 "In self-knowledge, the innermost core of the world comes to life with spiritual meaning. For the human being, the experience of self-knowledge means acting within the core of the world."

8 "According to Paracelsus, there is a deep connection between the human being and the entire universe that is hidden in the natural foundation of existence."

9 "Human consciousness can participate in the living, creative thoughts that underlie the world." Christopher Bamford, foreword

10 "No dust mote is so poor, no dot is so small, but the wise person sees God in it in his glory. – In a mustard seed, if you can understand it, is the image of all higher and lower things." Angelus Silesius (1624-1677), 'Cherubinic Wanderer', vol. 4

11 "Plato's head and mine interpenetrate; all heads that grasp the same single idea interpenetrate."

12 "There is an inmost center in us all, where truth abides in fulness." Robert Browning

13 "The bird is in the air, the stone lies on the land, the fish lives in the water, and my spirit is in God's hands." Angelus Silesius (1624-1677), 'Cherubinic Wanderer', vol. 1

14 "The mystics did not look to the divine as something external to be repeated within them, but as something real in them to be awakened." Christopher Bamford, foreword

15 "When we rise to a higher level of understanding, we feel within ourselves the eternal and necessary impulse of the universe, just like the flower of the field; we act just as the flower does in blooming."

16 "Eternity is the everlasting Now." Johannes Tauler

17 "Stop! What are you chasing after? Heaven is within you. If you are looking for God anywhere else, you will always miss him." Angelus Silesius (1624-1677), 'Cherubinic Wanderer', vol. 1

18 "This sacred spark of the divine nature within us has a natural, strong, almost infinite longing for that eternal spirit of God from which it came forth." Jacob Boehme

19 "Each thing is under the influence of all the remaining things of the cosmic whole. This universal whole appears as a great harmony, of which every individual entity is a part."

20 "God is not merely MIRRORED within human beings but he LIVES IN THEM."

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...

Dreams are the things That makes up REALITY ?

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
