"The seemingly 'weird' language and imagery of dreams, mythology, fairy tales and fantasy can be read as hieroglyphic expressions of messages of the Self's creative intentionality."

REINCARNATION: THE PHOENIX FIRE MYSTERY
Cranston/Head, editors

1 "By one's thought, will and action one determines what one is yet to be." S. Radhakrishnan (1888-1975), Oriental philosopher, President of India from 1962-1967, 'An Idealist View of Life'

2 "The divine perfection of the individual soul is the aim of all progression." Giordano Bruno (1548-1600), Italian philosopher and poet

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

4 "So closely are all human ideals associated with futurity that, in the absence of the faith that man is an immortal being, it seems doubtful whether they could ever have come to birth. In the further depths of our being, we are secretly conscious of our share in the inexhaustible spring of eternity, so that we can always hope to find life in it again….This belief seems, indeed, to be in accordance with nature's own favorite way of thought, of which she so insistently reminds us, in her rhythms and recurrences, her cycles and revolving seasons." W. Macneile Dixon

5 "The resources of wisdom are hidden in the depths of the human being." Ira Progoff (b. 1921), American psychologist, 'The Symbolic and the Real'

6 "Leibniz held with Bruno that each monadic center – whether an atom, a man, or a sun – is a mirror and replica of the entire cosmos, as well as the moving power in evolution." Editors

7 "Do you know who you are? One's whole being is Buddha-nature. One's whole being is the Great Way…Mind is the essential substance of all Buddhas." Bassui Tokusho (1327-1387), letter to a man from Kumasaka

8 "There dwells in the heart of every creature the Master who by his magic power causes all things and creatures to revolve mounted upon the universal wheel of time. Take sanctuary with him with all thy soul." Krishna, 'The Bhagavad Gita'

9 "Whether they are Syrian, Greek, Egyptian or Hindu, the writers of the sacred books seem to me as men who had all gazed upon the same august vision and reported of the same divinity." George W. Russell (1867-1935), Irish author, 'The Candle of Vision'

10 "We are always given a second, and another chance, and another chance, until all of us are able to graduate, to return to the Source and Creator of all life." Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, foreword

11 "Learned Audience, the Wisdom of Enlightenment is inherent in every one of us." Hui Neng (6th patriarch of Zen, 6th century ad),

12 "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?",

13 "All things are but altered, nothing dies." Ovid (43 bce – 17 ad), Roman Poet, 'Metamorphoses', Book 15

14 "The soul-order, originating from one primal Soul, descends to a manifold of souls and again carries back the manifold to the one." Proclus (410-485 ad), Greek Neoplatonic philosopher, 'Elements of Theology'

15 "I look upon death to be as necessary to the constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning." Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), American statesman, scientist and philosopher, letter to a friend

16 "All are one in our common humanity." H. B. Blavatsky, interview in London, 1887

17 "The virtues we acquire, which develop slowly within us, are the invisible links that bind each one of our existences to the others." Honore de Balzac, 'Seraphita'

18 "In the circle, which comprehends in itself the beginning and the end, we have the figure of true being; and circular motion is the only enduring form of motion. From this Spirit, which is called the Life of the Universe, proceed the life and soul of everything which has soul and life." Giordano Bruno (1548-1600), Italian philosopher and poet, answer at his trial before the Inquisitor in Venice, May 1592, quoted by I. Firth in "Life of Giordano Bruno, Boston 1887, p. 123

19 "Our innermost being is more valuable than all titles and honors." Queen Elisabeth of Austria (1837-1898),

20 "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'

21 "The only One breathed breathless by itself. Other than It there nothing since has been." The Hymn of Prajapati in the Rig Vega

22 "Attached to the Real, the man goes to the Real, through steadfastness in the one; so the larva, meditating on the bee, is transformed into the nature of the bee, enters into the being of the bee; so the seeker for union, meditating on the reality of the supreme Self, enters therein through steadfastness in the one." Sankaracharya, 'The Crest Jewel of Wisdom'

23 "Man is the dialogue between nature and God." J. W. von Goethe (1749-1832), German poet

24 "It is in love, and in nothing else, that we find not only the supreme value of life, but also the supreme reality of life, and indeed, of the universe." John Ellis McTaggart (1866-1925), British philosopher, 'Human Immortality and Pre-Existence'

25 "Begin heart and soul to spread the teaching of universal brotherhood…universal brotherhood rests upon the common soul." H. B. Blavatsky, interview in London, 1887

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
