ANCIENT WISDOM, MODERN INSIGHT
Shirley Nicholson

1 "As philosophy professor Renee Weber recognizes, there is a single tradition, one universal core of knowledge underlying its many expressions, which are 'bound by a common intentionality, an integral vision of man and world.'"

2 "Life is continually developing organisms which are more and more responsive to the inner demands of consciousness. Evolution marches forward with increasingly complex forms, which express an ever richer inner life."

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

4 "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."

5 "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'

6 "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."

7 "Every capacity and ability destined to evolve in future mankind already lies latent within each of us now. Every potential of the One, of the Divine Mind, is present from the beginning, only awaiting the proper time and setting to emerge into manifestation. We have untold potentialities within."

8 "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'

9 "Because we can choose our inner feelings and thoughts, we have the possibility of self-control and self-direction. This gives us some control over our environment and our world. Our evolution is now self-induced, through our own decisions and efforts. Although the full development of self-consciousness and choice is not yet apparent, we are capable to some extent of choosing what we wish to express and be and what our world will be."

10 "All the breathing, the pulses, the rhythms and movements of the natural world on earth or in astronomical spaces are variations of the one universal pulse, which gives rise to them."

11 "In its depths the life in all that exists IS the One Life."

12 "We are part of the One, never apart from the One Life."

13 "To the opened eye of the seer all nature is but a symbol, a partial and dim expression of the radiant beauty of the archetypes in the Divine Mind."

14 "In the midst of the whirling and changing worlds, we are ever rooted in the One, our deepest center of consciousness grounded in that unchanging, eternal background."

15 "Nothing can come into being that did not pre-exist in the inner world as ideal plan."

16 "The coordination of wholes visible everywhere in nature – the intricate web of connections – is the outworking in the world of the basic unity from which it arises."

17 "All these principles – unity, time, space, motion, polarity – are enfolded in the One."

18 "If we personally realize that synchronicity is at work in our lives, we feel connected rather than isolated and estranged from others; we feel ourselves part of a divine, dynamic, interrelated unvierse." Jean Shinoda Bolen, Jungian psychologist, 'The Tao of Psychology'

19 "Indeed, as proclaimed by all great religious convictions, a unity characterizes this emergent mind and the basic order of the universe." Karl Pribram, 'What The Fuss Is All About'

20 "Support for the concept of interrelatedness is emerging from all sides. This idea, strange and foreign a hundred years ago, is becoming more and more important in modern thought."

21 "Evolution systematically reveals the divine archetypes, the Ideas of Plato. Forms unfold through evolution according to the pattern impressed on them by the archetype that governs their particular structure."

22 "A single fundamental rhythm beats below and gives rise to the many diverse rhythms in the world."

23 "All nature is the outcome and the reflection of the One, which is its ground, and lies embedded in that Oneness from which it can never be really separate."

24 "We all share the same pool of genes. Each of us has as ancestors Europeans, Africans, Chinese, Arabs, Malays, Latins, Eskimos, and every possible type of human being. Students of genetics are forced to believe in human brotherhood. Each of us is literally kin to humankind; we are all the family of man."

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

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
