3 "Each religion has its own method of realisation whereby the ultimate reality, the final self, the integrating principle is reached." D. T. Suzuki, 'What Is Shin Buddhism?",

4 "Yes, a divine instinct that always grows in light and strength helps us to comprehend that nothing in the whole world wholly dies." George Sand (1803-1876), French author

5 "The being lives on, spectator of all the innumerable changes of environment. Starting from the great All, radiating like a spark from the central fire, he gathers experience in all ages, under all rulers, civilizations and customs, ever engaged in a pilgrimage to the shrine from which he came." W. Q. Judge, 'Echoes From the Orient'

6 "One earns a vision by living it, not merely thinking about it." Herbert Fingarette (b. 1921), American philosopher and psychologist, 'The Self in Transformation'

9 "Pythagoras and the Pythagoreans never doubted that we had souls drafted from the universal Divine intelligence." Cicero (106-43 bce), Roman statesman and philosopher, 'On Old Age'

10 "Immortality is a word which stands for the stability or permanence of that unique and precious quality we discern in the soul." W. Macneile Dixon, 'The Human Situation'

11 "There may indeed be a 'mythopoeic mentality,' but it is not restricted to precivilized man, but is to be found in geniuses as different as Boehme, Kepler, Blake, Yeats, Wagner, Heisenberg…Myth is not an early level of human development, but an imaginative description of reality in which the known is related to the unknown through a system of correspondences in which mind and matter, self, society, and cosmos are integrally expressed in an esoteric language of poetry and number." William Irwin Thompson, 'At The Edge of History'

12 "Heaven, Earth, and I were produced together, and all things and I are one." Chuang Tzu (c. 300 bc), Chinese philosopher, from 'The Texts of Taoism', James Legge, translator, Dover 1962

16 "Somehow or other, things do eventually 'balance out' in the moral realm; each moral action produces, eventually, its quite specific moral reaction." Herbert Fingarette (b. 1921), American philosopher and psychologist', 'The Self in Transformation'

17 "Look inward: thou art Buddha." H. P. Blavatsky, 'The Voice of the Silence'

19 "The Soul is immortal and fearless. The Soul is the fearless Eternal." The Brihad Aranyaka Upanishad

20 "By birth and growth the spirit-architect expands into this mass of which we consist, spreading outwards from the heart. Thither again it withdraws, winding up the threads of its web, returning by the same path along which it advanced, passed out by the same gate through which it entered. Birth is expansion of the center….death contraction to the center. It is the soul that gathers about it, groups and vivifies the atom-mass." Giordano Bruno (1548-1600), Italian philosopher and poet, quoted in J. Lewis McIntyre's 'Giordano Bruno', Macmillan, 1903

21 "The ringing challenge of the Delphic Oracle has resounded through the centuries: MAN, KNOW THYSELF!"

22 "By deep meditation…recognize the subtile nature of the supreme Self, and its presence in all organisms." The Code of Manu (ancient Hindu text),

23 "Deity is the One Universal SELF." Editors

24 "Our Essence of Mind (literally, self-nature) which is the seed or kernel of enlightenment is pure by nature." Hui Neng (6th Zen patriarch, 6th century ad)

25 "This is to be understood by the heart: there is no separateness at all." The Brihad Aranyaka Upanishad

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.

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
