"Striking is the resemblance – or more correctly the identity – of the doctrine of the One in the Upanishads and the Eleatic school. Xenophanes' teaching of the unity of God and the Kosmos and of the changelessness of the One, and even more that of Parmenides, who held that reality is ascribable only to the One unborn, indestructible and omnipresent,….these doctrines are completely identical with the essential contents of the Upanishads and of the Vedantic philosophy which springs from them."

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 "The Divine Reality is doing, or being, each one of us. We are expressions of God's endless creativity. The Divine is happening all the time, and in all corners of reality."

2 "No matter where you are, remember that forgiveness offers you peace of mind and everything else you could possibly ever want or hope for. It is an elixir, giving you your wholeness and leading you into the heart of God." Gerald Jampolsky, psychiatrist, founder of the Center for Attitudinal Healing

3 "This much is certain, that once we make up our minds to seek God, he is already seeking us much more eagerly, and he is not going to let anything happen to prevent his purpose." Thomas Keating

4 "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."

5 "The Divine Essence has infinite concern, compassion, kindness, mercy, and sensitivity for US. This love has an infinite number of dimensions, and each dimension is itself endless. The Divine Reality is not a cold philosophical, analytical intelligence, though it is pure intelligence also, but a warm radiance of light. We arise eternally in this love; it maintains us in being, nourishing us in each moment; and it is our final destiny to be united to this love forever."

6 "Kindness…is an eternal absolute. It is the bond connecting all beings in the great web of interdependence in which we all participate and by which we are sustained."

7 "The human body is His sitar. He draws the strings, and out of it comes the music of the inner universe." Kabir

8 "Christians, and those who simply admire Christ's teachings, are fortunate to have such a personal example of love to follow. Each one of us is capable of this commitment."

9 "Small good works have results we do not foresee; their spiritual effects in the world are often unknown to us, but they are real."

10 "Do you see O my brothers and sisters? It is not chaos or death – it is form, union, plan – it is eternal life – it is Happiness." Walt Whitman

11 "Everything is linked with everything else; so divine essence is below as well as above, in heaven and on earth. There is nothing else." Moses deLeon (d. 1305), Spanish Jewish mystic

12 "No matter what we believe, we are all bound to seek justice, to think and act with genuine kindness, and to have humility of heart."

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

14 "The Divine is the knower in all of us, and we have to align ourselves with it."

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

16 "The inner reality, core focus, commitment, and intention of God is love itself."

17 "God is everywhere, in every being and in every situation, in the cosmos and the natural world, in our loved ones, our friends, just as he is in the stranger, our neighbors, our pets, and very pointedly in the suffering."

18 "A person's true wealth is the good he does in this world." Muhammad

19 "In eternity there is no succession, no moment by moment, but only one integral moment, the Everlasting Now in which all moments are part of the absolute moment of the Now. All the moments of all lives in all worlds, in all realms and universes, are simultaneous with one another. It is like a great cosmic, heavenly banquet at which we are all present: everything that is, was or could be. Let us all aspire to realize this Divine Consciousness, our birthright and our final home."

20 "Whatever our mission in life, this is our real task: to spread truth, love, and peace. Our world is in desperate need of peace in this age of division and violence. Each one of us has the capacity to live truth, love, and peace heroically, spreading their influence around the world."

21 "Paradoxically, it's most often our smallest, most anonymously done good works that have the greatest spiritual impact in and on this world." Thom Hartmann, author and radio talk show host

22 "Each one of us is dependent on others and nature to be. Everything is interdependent….we are intrinsically and fundamentally related to everyone and everything else."

23 "Our souls are interconnected with every other soul in the divine reality."

24 "The very fact that you desire to be enlightened will give you the power to be enlightened. That is the fuel. Flame it. Fuel it." Marsha Sinetar, author

25 "We are not actually separate from anyone or anything; we are intimately connected with all. This is a profoundly liberating realization – an overpowering, overarching principle in every tradition."

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.

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
