"In systematic spiritual practice involving holotropic states of consciousness, we can repeatedly transcend the ordinary boundaries of the body-ego and identify with other people, animals, plants, or inorganic aspects of nature and also with various archetypal beings. We discover in this process that any boundaries in the material universe and in other realities are ultimately arbitrary and negotiable."

3 "We are not only a link among many others, but a vital, creative factor in the vast cosmic drama, capable and indeed called upon to play a dynamic part in the world toward the building up of all into one harmonious whole." Jeanine Miller, 'The Relevance of the Vedas to Modern Man'

4 "Whether one believes in a religion or not, whether one believes in rebirth or not, there is none who does not appreciate love and compassion." The Dalai Lama, 'Between Self and Others: Cultivating an Enlightened Attitude'

6 "Universal archetypes are valid for all human beings, irrespective of race, culture and social conditions." Lama Anagarika Govinda, 'Symbols of Transformation'

7 "The last hymn of the Rig Veda collection is so appropriate to our modern world that it should be recited before every session of the United Nations: 'Gather together, converse together. Your minds be of one accord…United be your counsel, united your assembly, united your spirit and thought. A single plan do I lay before you; a single oblation do I offer. United be your resolve, united your hearts, may your spirits be at one, that you may long together to be in unity and concord.' (Rgv.X.191.2-4)" Jeanine Miller, 'The Relevance of the Vedas to Modern Man'

8 "In this mighty living organism that is the Universe there is nothing really dead or absolutely unconscious. On the contrary, like every cell in a living healthy body, every part and every cell in the universe is alive….every part, every particle in it is ensouled, inspirited, by the All-aware, All-feeeling Being that is Atman." J. C. Chatterji, 'The Wisdom of the Vedas'

11 "All forms of sincere worship and all gods are facets which mirror one aspect or other of the One Reality." Jeanine Miller, 'The Relevance of the Vedas to Modern Man'

12 "The great unitary vision of the Vedic sage made him capable of conceiving a oneness to which all aspects converged; all things, working toward greater harmony of the whole." Jeanine Miller, 'The Relevance of the Vedas to Modern Man'

13 "Our neighbor is not simply 'the Other.' He or she reveals to us that unifyng link which binds us together." Jay G. Williams, 'How Pleasant It Is…'

14 "Throughout it all the great themes of righteousness or duty, of love or devotion, of truth in word, thought, and deed, of reward and punishment or cause and effect or action and reaction, of self-sacrifice, generosity, hospitality, remain the basic seeds of all civilizations, are present in all religions and are as fundamental and vital today as ever before." Jeanine Miller, 'The Relevance of the Vedas to Modern Man'

15 "Cultivation of the mind of love is essential…We should all take it as the very basis and structure of our practice." The Dalai Lama, 'Between Self and Others: Cultivating an Enlightened Attitude'

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
