THE ATMAN PROJECT
Ken Wilber
A transpersonal view of human development, with a profound and lucid insight into our nature and destiny.

1 "Evolution consists of a series of ever-higher wholes until there is only Wholeness. Evolution is holistic because it is nature's remembrance of God."

2 "Infinite, all-pervading and all-embracing Consciousness is both One and Many, Only and All, Source and Suchness, Cause and Condition, such that all things are only a gesture of this One, and all forms a play upon it. As Infinity, it demands wonder; as God, it demands worship; as Truth, it demands wisdom; and as one's true Self it demands identity."

3 "At its peak, the soul becomes one, literally one, with the deity-form, with the dhyani-Buddha, with God. One dissolves into Deity, as Deity – that Deity which, from the beginning, has been one's own Self or highest Archetype. In this way only could St. Clement say that he who knows himself knows God." 69

4 "This entire movement of evolution simply continues from unity to unity until there is only Unity."

5 "As the process of transcendence and integration continues, it discloses ever higher-order unities, leading, consumately, to Unity itself."

6 "Evolution is transcendence (Erich Janstch's marvelous phrase: 'Evolution as self-realization through self-transcendence'); and transcendence has as its final goal Atman, or ultimate Unity Consciousness in only God. All drives are a subset of that Drive, all wants a subset of that Want, all pushes a subset of that Pull – and that whole movement is what we call the Atman-project: the drive of God towards God."

7 "Wherever there is other, there is fear." The Upanishads

8 "All things and events, while remaining perfectly separate and discrete, are only One."

9 "Just as your eye can take in or see all four corners of this page in a single glance, so the eye of Eternity sees all time in one Moment. All of eternity is in every point of time, so that all time is Present in Eternity."

10 "All sentient beings possess the Buddha Nature." The Nirvana Sutra

11 "From the very beginning, all creatures intuit God. From the start, men and women intuit their prior Atman nature, and this acts like a huge unconscious magnet, so to speak, drawing them onward and upward toward that perfect release in the superconscious All."

12 "Man is born the son of God, participating totally in the nature of the Supreme Principle of the Universe." Hubert Benoit, 'The Supreme Doctrine'

13 "Each stage of psychological growth is a step closer to God."

14 "There are NO radically separate entities anywhere – the boundary between subject and object is ultimately illusory."

15 "Psychological development in humans has the same goal as natural evolution: the production of ever-higher unities. And since the ultimate Unity is Buddha, God, or Atman (to use those terms in their broadest sense as 'ultimate reality'), it follows that psychological growth aims at Atman."

16 "In this moment and this moment and this, an individual IS Buddha, is Atman, is the Dharmakaya."

17 "Evolution – wherever it appears – manifests itself as a series of transcendences, of ascents, of emergences – and emergences of higher-order WHOLES."

18 "'Anima Naturaliter Christiana', said Tertullian, by which he meant that 'the soul is endowed from the outset with the knowledge of God."

19 "According to the perennial philosophy, the re-discovery of this infinite and eternal Wholeness is men and women's single greatest need and want."

20 "Each successive stage achieves a higher-order unity, and this continues until there is ONLY Unity."

21 "The eternal present underlies and embraces all duration."

22 "Venerable Ones, get to know the One who plays with these shadows. He is the original source of all the Buddhas. Knowing him, wherever you are is home." Zen Master Rinzai

23 "Every individual – every sentient being – constantly intuits that his prior Nature IS the infinite and eternal, All and Whole."

24 "As Aristotle put it, when all potential has been actualized, the result is God."

25 "At the beginning of THIS and every moment, each individual IS God as the Clear Light."

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
