"We are to recognize in this whole universe a reflection magnified of our own most inward nature; so that we are indeed its ears, its eyes, its thinking, and its speech – or, in theological terms, God's ears, God's eyes, God's thinking, and God's Word."

THE MYSTIC HOURS, A DAYBOOK OF INTERSPIRITUAL WISDOM & DEVOTION
Wayne Teasdale
In this book, Teasdale provides a powerful look at spiritual wisdom, filled with quotations from all the great mystics and spiritual traditions.

1 "We are all blessed with [a] vast mine of infinite compassion if we open ourselves to our true nature."

2 "One of the goals of life is to learn the value of community, of interconnectedness, our oneness in the Divine Reality."

3 "Whatever the Source is, however it is named or imagined, the truth is the same: Our gifts are donated from that originating point. Each interpretive system of spiritual and mystical culture understands this. The crucial point in life is to use these gifts wisely: not to squander them, but to commit them to the benefit of the whole community of life."

4 "Your trials did not come to punish you, but to awaken you." Paramahansa Yogananda

5 "The Divine surrounds us on all sides and within the depths of the mind, even in the unconscious and on the frontiers of imagination."

6 "God is the self in every person, and with the requisite sensitivity, we can discern this presence shining forth in all things."

7 "In being one with the Divine, or what the Native Americans of the plains might call the Great Spirit, we are also at the center of the cosmos. In relationship with the Great Spirit, we share this same center. Let us find peace in this unity."

8 "If we can become inwardly attuned to the Divine Presence within, we will understand our nature and our ultimate belonging to God."

9 "The interconnectedness of all sentient beings within the cosmos is what I like to call the Divine Matrix. Our healing, in some intangible but very real way, brings healing to the world, though we may not perceive it. Our healing…is a corporate event and process that involves all."

10 "Before the Unconditioned, the conditioned dances: 'Thou and I are one!' this trumpet proclaims." Kabir

11 "We are manifestations of the Godhead's infinite creativity."

12 "We should work together to set forth a path for humanity that includes everybody. That's the Divine Will for the human family, and the best in each religion acknowledges a similar vision."

13 "We cannot really die in any permanent way, but are ever called on from one transition to another until we are transformed. Once we know how to be here in the integrity of the moment, we enter the Eternal Now and we know we wil always be."

14 "You always carry within yourself the very thing that you need for the fulfillment of your life purpose." Malidoma Some, African author

15 "If we are to realize our potential, we must recognize our nature as sharers in God's being, participants in the infinite love that God is."

16 "Consciousness is immaterial and thus totally indestructible. It is spirit, the eternal self."

17 "There is no place we can look or be that we will not find God, if only we recognize what we are seeing."

18 "We are all connected to one another in an essential, intrinsic interdependence. What happens to any one of us has a direct effect on the totality of relationships in the body of humanity."

19 "If a person lives, thinks, and is motivated by this intention of love, of compassion, kindness, and mercy, then that person is already in God's kingdom."

20 "Life is always a moral question that lies before us sweetly, dependent on our gratitude and constant struggle to cause as little suffering as possible to all and everything around us." Paul Hawken, entrepreneur and environmentalist

21 "Lord Buddha's admonition to us was to serve by helping those who suffer physically to overcome physical sufferings, those who are in fear to overcome fear, those who suffer mentally to overcome mental suffering. Be of service to all living beings." A. T. Ariyaratne, Buddhist social and spiritual activist

22 "In each situation we are immersed in his peace because God is our permanence, our coherence, our future. We are united to that reality which does not pass away."

23 "To know the sweetness of the Infinite within us, that is the cause, the reason, the purpose, the only purpose of our being." Nicholas of Cusa

24 "Love calls to us in the homeless, the hungry, the stranger, the prisoner, and the abandoned child, the forgotten elderly, the ill and the dying, the unloved and unwanted. Do you hear its call?"

25 "Be a blazing fire of truth, be a beauteous blossom of love, and be a soothing balm of peace." Sufi saying

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
