"A wonderful era may soon dawn when humanity will figuratively rub its eyes to find that blinkers and barriers of so many kinds have somehow melted away and that it has learnt to turn its back upon the illusion of Division, and seeks only to unite and fuse all people and all activities into one coherent Whole which ever becomes simpler and more complete."

MAKING PEACE WITH GOD, A PRACTICAL GUIDE
Harold Bloomfield, M.D. & Philip Goldberg, Ph.D.

1 "Evidence suggests that the original meaning of the phrase that has come down to us as 'fear of God' was something more like awe. And awe, wrote Abraham Joshua Heschel, 'enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and the simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal'."

2 "God can be seen as infinite generosity, ever and always giving him- or herself away like the sun gives away light – or, to use biblical imagery, like a burning bush that is not consumed by its flame. As manifestations of the sacred, created so to speak in the image and likeness of God, our very nature is generosity. The more access we have to the inexhaustible source of love and goodness at the center of our being, the easier and more natural it is to give some of it away."

3 "Love is the delicate magnetic force that unifies diversity and brings wholeness to variety."

4 "Prayer is the energy feedback God gets from us, His creation. Prayer completes the circuit of God's energy and helps to keep it flowing." Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi

5 "It is in our best interest to be kind and compassionate. Kindness not only comes back to us, often in rewards too subtle to notice, but it brings us closer to God by making us feel worthy of grace and protecting us from toxic relationships that throw tension and distress in the way of peace."

6 "What Ralph Waldo Emerson stated in the nineteenth century – 'I know with certainty that who I am does not end at the top of my head' – was echoed in the twentieth century by neuroscientists like Wilder Penfield and Karl Pribram. To them and others, consciousness is nonlocal, not confined to specific points in time and space but inextricably woven into the cosmic fabric."

7 "Every spiritual tradition contains teachings that say, essentially, God is not hiding; God is present here and now, within and without, always and ever, in every here and every now….'Wherever you turn is God's face', said the prophet Muhammad, who also said, 'Whoever knows himself knows God.' Why? Because God is in us as us."

8 "Deep down the universe is benign."

9 "God's will may not come to you in verbal or visual messages, or as anything you can articulate. It might just come as a deeply felt sense of where to go, what to do and how to act in the world from moment to moment. Clues might arrive in dreams, reveries or flashes of intuition, or in synchronistic meetings and moments, like a seemingly chance encounter with another person or a passage in a book you open in a random instance."

10 "What we know as the Golden Rule has been stated and restated through the ages by every religion and every ethical philosophy. In ancient Jerusalem, Rabbi Hillel told a young seeker, 'What is hateful to you, do not do to others. That is the whole of the Torah. The rest is commentary.' In China, Confucius echoed Hillel: 'What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.' Islam puts it this way: 'No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.' In Leviticus it reads as a commandment, 'Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself,' words repeated by Jesus when the Pharisees challenged him, and later reframed in the Sermon on the Mount as, 'Always treat others as you would like them to treat you.' Perhaps Jesus had heard that Aristotle had said, three hundred years earlier, 'We should behave to our friends as we would wish our friends to behave to us."

11 "The times when God seems absent are also the times God is close, tangible and real." Rev. William Grimbol

12 "I am He whom I love and He whom I love is I." Al-Hallaj

13 "We are all roommates, cohabitating in a universe of unbroken wholeness."

14 "The peace of the awakened individual spreads, not only through acts of goodness but by pulsating outward like radio waves through prayer, meditation and the pure emanations of the soul."

15 "There are joys which long to be ours. God sends ten thousand truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet." Henry Ward Beecher, 19th century American minister

16 "God's very essence is love."

17 "Gently remind yourself that everything you see, hear, touch, taste and smell contains the same divine spark as you do. 'God himself culminates in the present moment,' wrote [Henry David] Thoreau, 'and will never be more divine in the lapse of all the ages.'"

18 "We are blessed beings, eternally embraced by divine love."

19 "Your heart beats on its own. Your lungs take in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide without your willful assistance. Nature puts you to sleep and wakes you up. Why shouldn't life-supporting choices flow just as freely from a mind that's attuned to the evolutionary currents of the cosmos?"

20 "The tools of illumination are the will to know, the will to love and the will to serve." Wu Li

21 "The love of God is eternally present, like gravity or electro-magnetism. We don't have to earn it, we have to awaken to it."

22 "We know enough now to state unequivocally that everything is connected, that we are all part of one another and everything each of us does affects the rest of the planet. We are also blessed with communication and transportation technologies that shrink the globe and bring together minds and bodies in ways that illuminate the unity of our diverse species. Most of all, we have the spiritual technologies to make Oneness a conscious reality not just an abstract idea, and to make kindness and compassion a felt experience not just a noble aspiration."

23 "The main impetus for change will come from the millions of individuals like you, who are experiencing directly the peace of God and thereby know – not just believe, not just understand, but know – that the spokes of all religions merge at the hub of divine union. Those who embrace that truth can lead the way to a collective spiritual awakening."

24 "In the view of every wisdom tradition, the essence of the universe is love and light and goodness. Our grand purpose is to awaken to our essential nature, which is the very same love and light and goodness."

25 "The memory of oceanic Oneness is part of our soul's code. It is buried deep in our awareness; our very brains are programmed to reclaim it."

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
