"The radical unity of the ultimate essence of each constituent part of compounds in Nature – from Star to mineral to Atom, from the highest to the smallest, in the fullest acceptation of the term, and whether applied to the spiritual, intellectual, or physical worlds – this is the one fundamental law."

THE SPIRAL DANCE, A REBIRTH OF THE ANCIENT RELIGION OF THE GREAT GODDESS
Starhawk (Miriam Simos)
Shows how Goddess religion can become the means of expanding awareness, tapping creativity, and encouraging community.

1 "The universe is a fluid, ever-changing energy pattern, not a collection of fixed and separate things. What affects one thing affects, in some way, all things: All is interwoven into the continuous fabric of being."

2 "The Goddess is continually revealing Herself."

3 "Awareness of energy is awareness of the great dance of the universe. Seemingly intangible, it underlies all that we can touch….Awareness of your own energy is the awareness that flesh and spirit are one, that thou art Goddess, eternally linked, connected, at one with the moving spirit of All."

4 "The Goddess says, 'If that which you seek, you find not within yourself, you will never find it without. For I have been with you from the beginning.'"

5 "The center of the circle is the point of transformation. It corresponds to pure essence, to timelessness, to transparent light."

6 "The circle is ever open, ever unbroken. May the Goddess awaken in each of our hearts."

7 "She [Goddess] is the ship, on which we sail the waters of the deep self, exploring the uncharted seas within. She is the door, through which we pass into the future. She is the cauldron, in which we who have been wrenched apart simmer until we again become whole."

8 "Images bridge the gap between the verbal and non-verbal modes of awareness; they allow the two sides of the brain to communicate, arousing the emotions as well as the intellect."

9 "We are fish caught in a magic net – imagenetic – because our genes remember, our cells remember, the source, the origin, the beginning – imagenesis – creation out of image – creation of the image – from the image all is born – all is magic – imagnosis – this, through what we imagine, we know."

10 "The Goddess awakens in infinite forms and a thousand disguises. She is found where She is least expected, appears out of nowhere and everywhere to illumine the open heart. She is singing, crying, moaning, wailing, shrieking, crooning to us: to be awake, to commit ourselves to life, to be a lover in the world and of the world, to join our voices in the single song of constant change and creation."

11 "We are already one with the Goddess – She has been with us from the beginning. So fulfillment becomes…a matter of self-awareness."

12 "Nature knows best….It is through study and observation of nature, of the visible, physical reality, that we can learn to understand the workings of the underlying reality."

13 "The universe is a dance of energy, a uni-verse, a single song of ever-changing rhythms and harmonies."

14 "We are each a part of the interpenetrating, interconnecting reality that is All."

15 "The Goddess has infinite aspects and thousands of names – She is the reality behind many metaphors. She IS reality, the manifest deity, omnipresent in all of life, in each of us."

16 "I am Goddess. You are God, Goddess. All that lives and breathes, loves, sings in the unending harmony of being is divine."

17 "Justice is an inner sense that each act brings about consequences that must be faced responsibly."

18 "The world of separate things is the reflection of the One; the One is the reflection of the myriad separate things of the world."

19 "All began in love; all seeks to return to love. Love is the law, the teacher of wisdom, and the great revealer of mysteries."

20 "We connect with Her [Goddess] through the moon, the stars, the ocean, the earth, through trees, animals, through other human beings, through ourselves. She is here. She is within us all. She is the full circle."

21 "Oneness is attained not through losing the self, but through realizing it fully. Honor the Goddess in yourself, celebrate your self, and you will see that Self is everywhere."

22 "Love is the glue that holds the world together."

23 "Everything is connected to everything else." Barry Commoner, 'The Closing Circle'

24 "The All-That-Is-One is not now and never has been separate from this existing physical world. She is here, now, IS each of us in the eternal changing present; is no one but you, is nowhere but where you are – and yet is everyone."

25 "The Goddess is manifest in the food we eat, the people we love, the work we do, the homes in which we live."

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
