ONE

1 "We live in a veritable sea of moving forces, qualified in countless ways, conditioned by countless minds….yet all of them perforce finding place in the mind content of the One in Whom we live and move and have our being." Discipleship in the New Age (Alice A. Bailey)

2 "At the deepest levels of our being we are all one." Riding With the Lion: In Search of Mystical Christianity (Kyriacos C. Markides)

3 "Godhead is granted as a gift to all things. It flows over in shares of goodness to all. And it becomes differentiated in a unified way. It is multiplied and yet remains singular. It is dispensed to all without ceasing to be a unity….God is indivisible multiplicity, the unified overfullness, which produces, perfects, and preserves all unity and all multiplicity….In fact, He is the one God who dwells indivisibly in every individual and who is in Himself undifferentiated unity with no commixture and no multiplication arising out of His presence among the many." Pseudo-Dionysius, The Complete Works (John Farina, Editor-in-Chief)

4 "We must say, over and over, there is only one Universe." The Unobstructed Universe (Stewart Edward White)

5 "All heavenly lights may appear as separate yet emanate from the One Source and are one unified light." Zohar Miraculous Living (Rabbi Shoni Labowitz)

6 "Only he to whom all is one, who draws all things to one, and sees all things in one, may enjoy true peace and rest of spirit." Amos Bronson Alcott (1799-1888), American Transcendentalist lecturer and writer A Treasury of Philosophy, Vol. 1 (Dagobert D. Runes, editor)

7 "The one Breath of the whole universe, I know that mighty Spirit, the shining sun beyond the darkness….I know Him the unfading, the ancient, the Soul of all, omnipresent by His nature." Shvetash-vataropanishad, iii, 8, 21 The Ancient Wisdom (Annie Besant)

8 "There exists just the One Mind….Every grain of matter, every appearance is one with Eternal and Immutable Reality!" Huang Po, founder of the Buddhist Lin Chi sect The Essential Mystics (Andrew Harvey)

9 "The Divine One is himself the Good (in the primary and proper sense of the word), whose very nature is goodness." Gregory of Nyssa (331-396) Devotional Classics (Richard J. Foster and James Bryan Smith, editors)

10 "The Universe unfolds through the creation of the myriad forms of its expression, yet it always remains essentially One." Soul Centered Astrology, A Key to Your Expanding Self (Alan Oken)

11 “The reality is that all things are contained beforehand in and are embraced by the One in its capacity as an inherent unity.” Pseudo-Dionysius, The Complete Works (John Farina, Editor-in-Chief)

12 "Think your way towards the principle of Oneness as far as you possibly can." Basic Theosophy (Geoffrey Hodson)

13 "The eternal Existence is proclaimed in the Chhandogyopanishad as 'One only, without a second.'" The Ancient Wisdom (Annie Besant)

14 "According to an old Eastern book, 'the man who sees the One Self in everything, and all things in the Self, he sees, verily, he sees.' All else is blindness. The sense of separation, while necessary for evolution, is fundamentally a mistake. The separateness is only like the branch that grows out of a trunk, the unity of the life of the tree passes into every branch and makes them all a oneness." The Spiritual Life (Annie Besant)

15 "Like a seed at rest, the nature-principle within, unfolding outwards, makes its way towards what appears a multiple life." Plotinus (205-270), 'Enneads' The Quotable Spirit (Peter Lorie and Manuela D Mascetti, editors)

16 "All the different things we desire are really one; for they are reflections of aspects of God, and God is one." Heaven, The Heart's Deepest Longing (Peter Kreeft)

17 "There is thus an incessant multiplication of the inexhaustible One and unification of the indefinitely Many. Such are the beginnings and endings of worlds and of individual beings: expanded from a point without position or dimensions and a now without date or duration." Ananda K. Coomaraswamy Spectrum of Consciousness (Ken Wilber)

18 "Running through the field of time is this energy which is the one energy that is putting itself into all these forms." A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living (Diane K. Osbon, editor)

19 "First the molecules of carbon compounds with their thousands of atoms symmetrically grouped; next the cell which, within a very small volume, contains thousands of molecules linked in a complicated system; then the metazoa in which the cell is no more than an almost infinitesimal element; and later the manifold attempts made sporadically by the metazoa to enter into symbiosis and raise themselves to a higher biological condition. And now, as a germination of planetary dimensions, comes the thinking layer which over its full extent develops and intertwines its fibres, not to confuse and neutralise them but to reinforce them in the living unity of a single tissue." The Phenomenon of Man (Pierre Teilhard deChardin)

20 "One Nature, perfect and pervading, circulates in all natures. One reality, all-comprehensive, contains within itself all realities." Larry Dossy, M.D., 'Ancient Messages in Modern Science' American Theosophist, The (Dora Kunz, Executive Editor)

21 "He knew behind all creeds the Spirit that is one." Andrew Lang, 'Herodotus in Egypt' Macmillan Dictionary of Religious Quotations (Margaret Pepper, editor)

22 "For Plotinus as for the Pythagoreans The One is, statically, the unity by which all number is intelligible, and, dynamically, the unity whence and whither all multiplicity moves." Elmer O'Brien, S.J., translator The Essential Plotinus (Translated by Elmer O'Brien, S.J.)

23 "The living heart of all religion is experienced oneness with the Divine and its expression by means of wisely directed, loving service." Call to the Heights, Guidance on the Pathway to Self-illumination (Geoffrey Hodson)

24 "The Tantric-Hindu theory of the creation of the world holds that Nature as a whole is the Dream of the One Mind." Seeing With the Mind's Eye (Mike Samuels, M.D. and Nancy Samuels)

25 "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." Ancient Wisdom, Modern Insight (Shirley Nicholson)

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
