ONE SPIRIT, MANY PEOPLES, A MANIFESTO FOR EARTH SPIRITUALITY
Stephen Harrod Buhner
This book affirms that experiencing the earth as sacred is essentially an experience possible for all of humanity.

1 "The goal is to purify or make sacred the numerous parts of the self. Many established religious traditions have charted this journey in great detail and supply deeply useful information about the terrain the traveler encounters."

2 "From Wakan Tanka, the Great Spirit, there came a great unifying force that flowed in and through all things – the flowers of the plains, blowing wind, rocks, trees, birds, animals – and was the same force that had been breathed into the first man. Thus all things were kindred, and were brought together by the same Great Mystery." Luther Standing Bear (Sioux Native American)

3 "A basic tenet of Earth spirituality: Any element of Earth, because of its origin in spirit, can evoke all the power of the sacred, can become more than just plant, tree, or stone. It can transform itself and become PLANT, TREE, or STONE because each form of matter contains within it a divine logos."

4 "In a letter dated April 2, 1996, Avrol Looking Horse, the current keeper of the original sacred pipe of the Oglala people, called on all people of all faiths to actively pray together to support a healthy Earth: 'The prophesies tell it is time to begin mending the SACRED HOOP and begin GLOBAL healing by working towards PEACE & HARMONY.'"

5 "The sacred, at the core of all physical things, expresses itself in patterns of the Web of Life of the Earth. These patterns are a part of that living bible of the Earth."

6 "He [Black Elk] related that Buffalo Calf Woman said:…'You must always remember that the two-leggeds and all the other peoples who stand upon this earth are sacred and should be treated as such.'"

7 "The Lakota [Native American tribe] could despise no creature, for all were of one blood, made by the same hand, and filled with the essence of the Great Mystery." Luther Standing Bear (Sioux Native American)

8 "At the root of all mystic experience is the knowledge which comes from the first touch of the sacred upon a person, that there is but one source for all things."

9 "Because all things on this Earth are from one source, interspecies communication is not only inherent within us, it is necessary for understanding our own humanity and our own sacred nature."

10 "I tell you truly, you are one with the Earthly Mother; she is in you, and you in her….For your breath is her breath; your blood her blood, your bone her bone, your flesh her flesh." The Essene Gospel of John

11 "All religious traditions assume that there is a sacred center to all things. The name differs from religious form to religious form, but it is clear that there is an inherent tendency for human beings to encounter this sacred center."

12 "The presence and word of the Great Mystery is within every being, every thing, every event. Even the smallest being, a little ant for example, may appear, and communicate something of the power of the Great Mystery which is behind all forms of creation." Joseph Epes Brown

13 "At the center of all is a sacred thing that is alive and aware. It is the source of all things."

14 "As Gandhi observes: 'What may appear as truth to one person will often appear as untruth to another person. But that need not worry the seeker. Where there is honest effort, it will be realized that what appear to be different truths, are like the countless and apparently different leaves of the same tree.'"

15 "There are millions of interlocking and interdependent communication patterns among all the physical forms of the Earth, and with training human beings can perceive and understand those patterns of communication. It is part of our species' purpose to do so."

16 "The exchange of love between the contemplative person and the sacred center of all things keeps one on the path."

17 "There is no place so dark that sweet Spirit has not been there before you and prepared your place." Mary Baker Eddy

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.

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
