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 "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."

2 "The greatest accomplishment in life is to be who or what you are, and that is what God wanted you to be when he created you." Abbot Thomas Keating

3 "Love and mercy apply to everybody, no matter how much we want to hate them." Bo Lozoff, author

4 "Optimism is a choice. A future can be built on optimism but not on its opposite."

5 "Are you open to this power of grace and love that extends to all sentient beings?"

6 "That we may outgrow our need for dualism and conflict – that is my prayer."

7 "The apprehension of the intrinsic interconnectedness of all leads organically to a compassion for all, especially in the concrete existential situations of life as we meet others each day. Simply put, when we realize we are all in this together, our kindness and understanding grows. We are all related; we are all responsible for one another."

8 "The eternal exists in one moment, the now, and everything is contained in that now. Eternity is this one instant, but this one instant extends forever in itself."

9 "The inner nature or essence of each thing or sentient being is united to every other in God and through God. The Divine essence is immanently present in each being and in the laws of the universe. In every atom, electron, star, galaxy, and creature – in the cosmos as a whole – the Divine reality is the immanent ground and transcendent destiny of all beings."

10 "The will of God is manifest in each moment, an immense ocean which the heart only fathoms in so far as it overflows with faith, trust and love." Jean Pierre deCaussade

11 "There is a bridge between time and Eternity; and this bridge is Atman, the Spirit in us….To one who goes over that bridge, the night becomes like day, because in the worlds of the Spirit there is a Light which is everlasting." Chandogya Upanishad

12 "The shape things take is not within your power; the motives of your actions are." Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Indian spiritual master

13 "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

14 "Do you discern the Divine Order in life's chaos? What does it mean to you?"

15 "One instant is eternity; eternity is in the now; When you see through this one instant, you see through the one who sees." Wu-Men, Chinese poet

16 "The ultimate work of civilization is the unfolding of ever-deeper spiritual understanding." Arnold Toynbee

17 "Let us each examine our faith. If it is rooted in love, mercy, kindness, and compassion, we are on the right track."

18 "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

19 "Just as a wave on the ocean is what the ocean is doing, you are what God is doing." Wayne Dyer

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

21 "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

22 "The Divine flows through all of us."

23 "The whole purpose of religion is to facilitate love and compassion, patience, tolerance, humility, and forgiveness." The Dalai Lama

24 "While we often think of eternity as infinite time, it also means timelessness, found only in the present or the now."

25 "The virtuous man or woman attracts other people of virtue. The virtuous always seek out those who have attained this morally vibrant consciousness, for this company stimulates and reinforces their own commitment."

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
