THE ALTERNATIVE GOSPEL
John Baldock
Written for readers of all religious persuasions, this new interpretation of the gospel story shows how the events described by the gospel writers - from the virgin birth of Jesus to his ascension - offer us expansive images of a cosmic process.

1 "The I AM, the One, is the 'Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.'"

2 "All is One."

3 "The Will of God seeks to accomplish itself through our human will as the self-expression of our essence."

4 "Profound self-knowledge is knowledge of God."

5 "Interconnectedness permeates all things visible and invisible, and binds the Many inseparably to the One."

6 "What humankind as a whole has learnt in the course of its evolution forms an ever-expanding pool of collective wisdom. Also known as the perennial wisdom, or 'sophia perennis', this collective wisdom is freely available to us all."

7 "The One manifests as the Many while never ceasing to be the One."

8 "We are all invited to consummate our inherent oneness with Reality….Knowingly or not, we are all involved in our own process of self-realization, of spiritual expansion, all of the time."

9 "A sign of the continuing evolution of human consciousness is the re-emergence of our synthesizing mind from the shadows and our growing awareness of 'wholes' – not only in our increasing realization of the underlying interconnectedness of all things, but even in the endeavours of our conscious, analytical mind to find the ultimate Theory of Everything."

10 "In the One Reality there is only One Healer, One Teacher, to whom we all have free and instant access."

11 "While each of us is a unique human being, we are all equal in essence."

12 "According to the principle of 'ask and you will receive', spiritual food is freely available to us all from within ourselves."

13 "It is the belief that we somehow have to 'get' to God which is itself the primary cause of our dualistic sense of separation from him."

14 "We are a means of expression for the eternal and infinite I AM, the Spirit; the dynamic flow of energy, the all-encompassing motivating force that Is the One Reality."

15 "Collective wisdom goes straight down into our innermost parts – to our heart, or soul – from where, through 'hearing' the words with our inner ears, we may receive valuable insights into the nature of human being."

16 "The life of a moment and the life of thousands of years, your life and the lives of all creatures seen and unseen, is one." Leo Tolstoy, 'Esarhaddon, King of Assyria'

17 "What we are looking for lies within us. Or, as spiritual tradition tells us: 'What you are looking for is what is looking.'"

18 "Collective or perennial wisdom is the foundation stone of all religious and spiritual traditions, through which it expresses itself in the form of universal truths."

19 "When we are most in need, when we feel at our most powerless, or when we are at our most fearful, our spiritual essence will endeavour to make its presence known and reassure us that all will be well."

20 "We cannot separate ourselves from the creative power of the Spirit. Whatever we do, wherever we go, the Spirit is there within us."

21 "What each of us learns individually contributes to the learning process of humankind as a whole."

22 "Interconnectedness permeates all things visible and invisible, the Many Are the One."

23 "The Divine Will, Wisdom, the Spirit, the Word or Logos, or whatever else we like to call it, permeates the cosmos, giving it both form and life."

24 "What we know of ourselves and the universe in which we live is an integral part of the One's own Self-revealing, Self-knowing state….The One knows itself through us – through our eyes, and ears, and minds, through our entire being."

25 "Direct experience of the One Reality is itself the One Teacher."

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
