ANCIENT WISDOM, MODERN INSIGHT
Shirley Nicholson

1 "Behind the surface separation and supporting the seemingly disparate things is a unity more basic, more real, closer to us than our sense impressions,…mystics agree with physicists that this unitary realm is primary, that the divisions ultimately rest on a unitary background."

2 "In spite of the diversity of forms, evolution attests to the oneness of life."

3 "Unity runs through our entire being. We are composed of wholes within wholes, from atoms to organ systems. Each of us is a whole, all the complex strains of our nature converging into a unitary being."

4 "The forms of nature are exteriorized representations of Divine Thought."

5 "In the depths of our consciousness we are one with the Essence which permeates all."

6 "Consciousness in the guise of the Divine Mind, the subjective side of nature, is the driving force behind evolution.'

7 "At every level – from the atom and its parts through the myriad forms of life to the farthest stars and galaxies – all is permeated by one Life."

8 "Everywhere there is unity in multiplicity. Our bodies are an example of the interplay of a variety of specialized organ systems and processes working together as a whole. The larger world, too, is a single living system."

9 "The transcendent Source continually sustains and supports all being, as it holds all parts together in dynamic relationship with the whole."

10 "Life is a cyclic interplay of polar energies….The waning of the energy of one pole…is always associated with the waxing in strength of the other pole." Dane Rudhyar, 'The Pulse of Life'

11 "Our being is enmeshed in endless ways with others and with our environment."

12 "We can try to universalize our attitudes towards others, experience each as an expression of the One Life at a particular level of unfoldment, and begin to actualize universal love and compassion. As we work consciously to develop our mental and spiritual capacities, we move in the direction of the whole cosmic evolutionary process."

13 "The noumenal, nonmaterial Source of all remains forever one and undivided, while the interconnections and wholeness perceived in the world reflect this background oneness."

14 "All the planes and principles of nature are already implanted in us. All that is needed for the fulfillment of evolution's long-range goals exists within us already, buried at some unconscious level of our being."

15 "We desperately need a unifying world view to help heal the world's endless fractures. What problems could not be solved by first considering the good of the whole, of the lives of all those on our planet, rather than special interests!"

16 "The vision of an emergent planetary culture involves the broadening and deepening of our individual and collective perspectives and assumptions so that we embrace ourselves as a species, as humankind, rather than as separate factions." David Spangler, 'Revelations: The Birth of A New Age'

17 "Platonic and Pythagorean theory, which posits a mathematical basis for the physical world, offers clues as to the outworkings of the archetypes and the Divine Mind."

18 "Instead of stressing distinctions and the isolation of things, we can look at them as parts connected to form an organic whole. When we expand our consciousness and focus on this rather than on our seeming isolation, we can begin to live more fully."

19 "The universe…is a unified system, a mighty organism in which the inmost nucleus and pervading Spirit and Self is the one abiding Being." J. C. Chatterji

20 "If enough of us can perceive the new view of wholeness emerging in our times and absorb it into our consciousness so that it permeates our world view, and hence our attitudes and actions, our new vision cannot help but reflect in world attitudes and conditions. As we ourselves become whole and live as intrinsic parts of the Whole, we can begin to re-establish wholeness in our tragically fragmented and divided world."

21 "The metaphysical principles that inhere in the Transcendent One are reflected in us, as throughout the cosmos at every level."

22 "Every atom and particle is imbued with Divine Mind, which energizes it to move to higher levels of organization."

23 "The hexagons of the beehive and the turtle's shell, the ram's horn, the path of a moth all embody mathematical perfection."

24 "The great insights that have inspired mathematics, science, and philosophy, as well as the eternal beauty of great art, dramatically reveal the creative potential of the Divine Mind. But so, too, do our more humble everyday uses of mental faculties. We have a powerful inner urge toward order, toward perceiving harmonies and relationships, which we use everyday."

25 "The archetypes precipitate as ever more complex forms in the material world in accordance with the cyclic development of consciousness….The sequential unfolding of the archetype's potential from simple to complex proceeds cyclically, according to an inner order."

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
