3 "God is as present as the air." Michael Hollings, 'Day by Day'

4 "He who knows his own self knows God." Mohammed

5 "Ideas of what is right and wrong vary from age to age and from place to place, but the significant thing is that there is a distinction between right and wrong.

6 "To apprehend the one in the many constitutes the special character of love." Ernst Troeltsch, 'Christianity and Other Religions'

7 "Wherever there is a bit of colour, a note of song, a grace of form, then comes the call of our love." Rabindranath Tagore, 'Sadhana'

12 "When we allow the love of God to move in us we can no longer distinguish ours and his; he becomes us, he lives us. It is the first fruits of the Spirit, the beginning of our being made divine." Austin Farrer

13 "There is no power on earth like imagination." Laurens van der Post, 'Venture to the Interior'

14 "The parent of the universe fixed for eternity the causes whereby He keeps all things in order." Martin Luther

17 "The way through to the vision of the Son of Man and the knowledge of God, which is the heart of contemplative prayer, is by unconditional love of thy neighbor, of the nearest THOU to hand." Bishop John Robinson, 'Honest to God'

18 "God creates out of the absolute superabundance of his mercy and love." Fr. George Florovsky, Collected Works, vol. 3

19 "Live your human task in the liberating certainty that nothing in the world can separate you from God's love for you." Brakkenstein Community of Blessed Sacrament Fathers, Holland, 'Rule for a New Brother'

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...

Kuan Yin (as Channeled by Lena Lees & Transcribed by Hope Bradford)

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
