"St. Clement said, 'He who knows his Self knows God.' There is only one Witness in each of us, one Spirit looking out through different eyes, talking with different voices, walking with different legs. But the mystics say it's the same Witness, one and the same. There's only one God, one Self, one Witness, all capitals."

Laurence and Phoebe Bendit
Suggests that once we look inward to encompass the whole of nature, we will automatically re-order the world and save it for peaceful use by our children and their children.

1 "Each individual is deeply interlocked with the collectivity in which he is born and in which he lives. The group affects him, he affects the group, in a two-way interchange."

2 "Man [is] the source of his own deeper insights. He is also the focus from which he may help order to emerge from chaos through his inner contact with Being or Tao, his true Self – the God within."

3 "We move toward that consciousness of our shared destiny in One World." Joy Mills, foreword

4 "I am completely at one with God. At the same time, the totality of this God-Self is in every creature equally, not merely a part of it, but wholly."

5 "Wholeness, holiness or integration is the teleological aim of every individual."

6 "There are an infinite number of points at which Tao or God can be discovered by the inwardly open eye."

7 "Only as we know ourselves can we bring about the inner transformation which will lead to a real and deep re-ordering of the world."

8 "The world of existence is only dual in our conception of it. In Reality there is but one World."

9 "Myth…links the phenomenal world of our personal life with the spiritual level of our Being."

10 "We can learn much by holding on to the hand of the ancient intuitive tradition of real Religion."

11 "The word 'archetype' is derived from the Greek prefix which signifies a first or primal cause….The word is best taken for the numinous or abstract principle behind any thing or group of things in the phenomenal world. Being thus Numinous or Essential, it is not extended in space-time, but is what we would call a mathematical point with neither size or time-extension."

12 "The individual who becomes aware of his true standard of what is Good finds himself free."

13 "The Absolute or Supreme God is the basic, or final Archetype in which all lesser archetypes originate and are resolved."

14 "At a deep level we are all united and interdependent."

15 "It is well known that every minute physical particle in some measure affects the whole universe….In other words, there is no such thing as an independent entity in the universe, and what happens in one corner sends ripples indefinitely out from itself….what I think and feel spreads all around and influences others."

16 "There can be no more than one infinity, a place where all things, the great, the small, the external and the internal meet."

17 "What is truly spiritual includes all aspects of ordinary life."

18 "If we can learn to understand the universe from within, to feel our unity with it, we shall no longer need the instinctive reactions of fear or aggression, and the whole face of civilization will change."

19 "If we take a series of the dreams of an individual, we find in them the symbols of the universal language of world mythology. At the same time as they belong to mankind rather than to individual man, they have an individual aim, show the single man his own spiritual problems and the solution to them, if he will try to understand them and what they have to tell him."

20 "Myth is psychic truth."

21 "We do not have to look for God; he is there all the time, and no movement or travel is needed to find him."

22 "We are inclined to be dismayed and afraid of what is going on around us today….But we feel that if the present is properly understood,…there is much ground for hope. It will depend on how intelligently we, as human minds, using all the functions of thought, feeling and the impulse to act, learn to cooperate with the universal Mind out of which we and the whole creation are made. We have the means to do this; we have the guide lines to start us off. If we can see them and make use of them as we should, the future is secure. The choice is ours."

23 "The way through the present crisis is to learn to understand ourselves."

24 "Archetypal images have something in common throughout mankind."

25 "Frazer, in his monumental 'Golden Bough', gives us a vast amount of material from which it becomes clear that what Aldous Huxley later labelled 'the Perennial Philosophy' is basically the same everywhere in the world. This philosophy becomes highly colored with local and racial ideas, but the root is the same in Polynesia or Christendom, in ancient Egypt and in modern days."

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
