UNDERSTANDING YOURSELF: A SPIRITUAL APPROACH TO SELF-DISCOVERY AND SOUL-AWARENESS
Mark L. and Elizabeth Clare Prophet
Reaches beyond the bounds of the outer personality into the infinite world of the soul, offering a unique perspective into how to master the components of our being.

1 "You must come each day to a greater understanding of yourself in order to be able to rightly represent the purposes of life. You are love and you love love. You are wisdom and you love wisdom."

2 "Those inner experiences that are the by-products of the soul's contact with universal truth will still the inharmonious voices of the world. And they will reveal the peace that can be obtained from communion with the divine intent."

3 "In the center of the castle of Brahman, our own body, there is a small shrine in the form of a lotus-flower, and within can be found a small space. We should find who dwells there, and we should want to know him." Chandogya Upanishad

4 "The Eternal permeates the substance of mortality with its essential reality."

5 "Jesus' mission was to demonstrate to every soul on earth how to reunite with the Holy Christ Self. Jesus was the example of what we can become. He wanted all of us to walk our own path of personal Christhood."

6 "The being and consciousness of man must expand its own faith in universal purpose and draw upon a firsthand knowledge of the divine schemes."

7 "In one sense, all life is one. And this is the highest sense."

8 "If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself." Lao Tzu

9 "Where the Spirit is not present, where the Spirit is denied, where the Spirit is quenched, there is no fount of reality that brings the buoyancy of interspiritual and interpersonal realizations to the consciousness."

10 "God said to Abram, 'Go to your self, know your self, fulfill your self." The Zohar

11 "Man must choose daily whether to self-destruct or to self-exalt and whether to destruct or to exalt the God within."

12 "Each individual must daily strive to understand the totality of his being and his relationship to the whole."

13 "Truly the living God is crowned in every atom."

14 "It is well to remember the words from Hebrews: 'Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.' When you are childlike in your faith, that faith will sustain you in your determination to find your freedom from the darkness that would hide your True Self."

15 "The individual who reaches out from the seemingly separated center of being can, if he will, contact the cosmic center of life. From there he may reach out to the periphery of all reality as easily as the miracle of the radiant, expanding mind of God penetrates the universe with light."

16 "Man must truly know himself – as a divine being."

17 "Each son or daughter of God, in the dignity of true self-realization, must hold a sense of his or her own individual mission and expand outward in consciousness through the heavenly Presence to understand the life plan of others."

18 "'Know thyself' is an ancient proverb attributed to several sources, among them Thales and Solon of Athens (two of the Seven Wise Men of Greece) and Socrates. Cicero speaks of it as a precept of Apollo. It was one of the maxims inscribed in gold letters over the portico of the temple of Delphi."

19 "Every child of God's heart must discover who he is. To do so, he must know his intrinsic worth."

20 "Truly the admonishment 'Man, know thyself!' leads him upward and onward into the unfailing light."

21 "The key to the redemption of the social system lies in the victory of divine law in the being of individuals. What the individual becomes, the collective world is."

22 "The great teachers of mankind have walked the earth showing men how to live by dispensing both practical and spiritual wisdom. Their instructions have been simple. They have taught men not to hate but to love. Their admonishments were codified in the Ten Commandments and in the founding principles of the world's major religions. These principles include a belief in one Supreme Being."

23 "The mystics of the world's religions have contacted the divine spark, describing it as the seed of divinity within. Buddhists, for instance, speak of the 'germ of Buddhahood' that exists in every living being. In the Hindu tradition, the Katha Upanishad speaks of the 'light of the Spirit' that is concealed in the 'secret high place of the heart' of all beings. It describes this Spirit as 'smaller than the smallest atom, greater than the vast spaces."

24 "You all are clothed by the One."

25 "The greatest masters…have ultimately obtained reality through their abiding faith in the constancy of cosmic law."

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
