"The resurrective tendency of the universe is always at work in our personal trials and in our collective challenges. God, in His awesomeness and infinitude, has provided a solution to every problem, the moment the problem occurs. The part that any of us can play in providing that solution is etched on our hearts."

THE LION CHRISTIAN QUOTATION COLLECTION
Hannah Ward & Jennifer Wild, compilers

1 "Love is the divine vitality that everywhere produces and restores life. To each and every one of us, it gives the power of working miracles if we will." Lydia Maria Child (1802-1880), American abolitionist and writer

2 "The image of God is sealed in the lineaments of your soul." Thomas Traherne (1636-1674), English poet

3 "I know myself now, and I feel within me a peace above all earthly dignities, a still and quiet conscience." William Shakespeare (1564-1616), English playwright and poet

4 "Love makes everything lovely; hate concentrates itself on the one thing hated." George MacDonald (1824-1905), Scottish novelist, poet and pastor

5 "Our minds have a natural desire to know the truth of God and the causes of things, in just the same way as our eyes have a natural desire for light and our bodies for food." Gregory Thaumaturgus (c.213-270), early missionary in Turkey

6 "Let the fire of your prayer…burn always on the altar of your soul." John of Carpathos (ca. 7 ad), Greek monk

7 "Nobody is kind to only one person at once, but to many persons in one." Frederick William Faber (1814-1863), English co-founder of the London Oratory

8 "Love cannot be practiced without justice. Love cannot be built on injustice, for injustice is lovelessness. Love is not an alternative to justice….Justice is the beginning of love." Tissa Balasuriya, contemporary Sri Lankan theologian

9 "It can seem as if the world is falling to pieces….and yet the call keeps coming, a call, I think, which is not so much to power as to community with all those others who are wounded, whose worlds or lives also seem to be falling apart, and yet who are actually – we must believe – giving birth to something new." Veronica Brady, Australian writer

10 "Christ appeared not as a philosopher or wordy doctor, or noisy deputer, or even as a wise and learned scribe, but he talked with people in complete simplicity, showing them the way of truth in the way he lived." Angela of Foligno (1248-1309), Italian mystic

11 "No one can live without symbols. The symbol is the true appearance of reality; it is the form in which reality discloses itself to our consciousness, or rather, it is that particular consciousness of reality. It is in the symbol that the real appears to us." Raimundo Panikkar, Indian Catholic theologian

12 "In its highest unity, all that moves us in feeling is one….our being and living is a being and living in and through God." Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768-1834), German theologian

13 "Sow everywhere the good seed given to you." Seraphim of Sarov (1759-1833), Russian monk

14 "God is always everywhere." Clement of Alexandria (c.150-215), Theologian

15 "All things proceed from God, who is at once the centre and the circumference from which all existing lines proceed and at which all end up." Juana Ines de la Cruz (1651-1695), Mexican nun, poet and scholar

16 "We can only grow as people by living in relationships, by in-depth communication, and by orientating ourselves towards justice and charity. Through this attitude we learn to live in 'correct proportions'." Catharina J. M. Halkes, Dutch Feminist theologian

17 "Whatever belongs to the whole in some way seems to fit in with any part." Peter Damian (1007-1072), Italian church reformer

18 "Let us run towards the goal which from the beginning has been handed down to us, the goal which is peace; and let us fix our gaze on the Creator of the whole universe, and cling to his splendid and superlative gifts of peace." Clement of Rome (d.c.95), bishop of Rome

19 "The beloved John in his old age (according to Jerome in his commentary on Galatians 3:6) was in the habit of saying little else to his disciples other than 'Little children, love one another.'" Philipp Jakob Spener (1635-1705), German Lutheran pastor

20 "In the ultimate depths, everything good and true that people have ever known, thought, or lived comes from the one source of light. Our vocation is to make the way free for it." Eberhard Arnold (1883-1935), German founder of Christian communal movement in America

21 "Wisdom is the treasure. And this treasure was hidden in the field of the human heart when man was created in the image and likeness of his Maker." Hugh of St. Victor (1096-1141), German monk and writer

22 "God is near to all who call upon him…The kingdom of heaven can be reached from every land." Samhthann (ca. 6 ad), Celtic mystic

23 "The good neighbour looks beyond the external…..and discerns those inner qualities that make all men human and, therefore, brothers." Martin Luther King, Jr., American Baptist pastor and civil rights leader

24 "Our growth to a planetary dimension is an invitation to spiritual deepening, a purification from selfishness to a mre universal communion in real life, to our own humanization." Tissa Balasuriya, contemporary Sri Lankan theologian

25 "Do not be afraid of death which leads to certain life." Mother of Symphorian, early 1st century, to her martyred son

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
