Quotes and Inspirations

          "I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve."

          "The Full Measure of a man is not to be found in the man himself, but in the colors and textures that come alive in others because of him."

Dr. Albert Schweitzer

          “Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Breaking Free of the Pain Body

          A question people frequently ask is, “How long does it take to become free of the pain-body?” The answer is, of course, that it depends both on the density of an individual’s pain-body as well as the degree or intensity of that individual’s arising Presence. But it is not the pain-body, but identification with it that causes the suffering that you inflict on yourself and others. It is not the pain-body but identification with the pain-body that forces you to relive the past again and again and keeps you in a state of unconsciousness. So a more important question to ask would be this: “How long does it take to become free of identification with the pain-body?”

          And the answer to that question is: It takes no time at all. When the pain-body is activated, know that what you are feeling is the pain-body in you. This knowing is all that is needed to break your identification with it. And when identification with it ceases, the transmutation begins.

A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle

          “Remain true to yourself, but move ever upward toward greater consciousness and greater love! At the summit you will find yourselves united with all those who, from every direction, have made the same ascent. For everything that rises must converge.”

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

          One thing alone then concerns us; the ability to be still and let God manifest and express Himself as the still small Voice within us. In a complete Silence, with no attempt to use God, use Truth, or use a power over anybody or for anybody, something takes place within us that dissolves the problems of life and makes the way one of joy and fulfillment. The only effective and potent weapon against the powers that would destroy the world both physically and mentally is the Silence which comes of the conviction that there is a Something that created this universe and is responsible for maintaining it unto eternity—it is the ability to relax in Silence and let that Something perform Its function.

Joel Goldsmith,

The Thunder of Silence

          "Your inner journey only has one step: the step you are taking right now. As you become more deeply aware of this one step, you realize that it already contains within itself all the other steps as well as the destination. This one step then becomes transformed into an expression of perfection, an act of great beauty and quality. It will have taken you into Being, and the light of Being will shine through it. This is both the purpose and the fulfillment of your inner journey, the journey into yourself.”

Eckhart Tolle

The Power of Now

          Like a cork in water or a balloon in the atmosphere, each spirit rises to its own level of buoyancy within the infinite realms of energy fields of consciousness. No external “judgment” or Divine coercion is involved. Each being radiates forth its essence and so determines its own destiny. Thus is Divine justice perfect. By choice, each spirit becomes what it has chosen. Within all realms, there exists the moment-to-moment choice of the absolute reality that is ever present and whose absolute choice results in liberation.

Along the Path to Enlightenment

          In this interconnected universe, every improvement we make in our private world improves the world at large for everyone. We all float on the collective level of consciousness of mankind so that any increment we add comes back to us. We all add to our common buoyancy by our efforts to benefit life. What we do to serve life automatically benefits all of us because we are all included in that which is life. We are life. It’s a scientific fact that “what is good for you is good for me.”

          “Inner peace is impossible without patience. Spiritual growth implies the mastery of patience. Patience allows the unfolding of destiny to proceed at its own unhurried pace.

          When we are impatient we create misery for ourselves and others. We rush to rash judgments and act without considering the consequences of what we do. Our choices are forced and often incorrect, and we are liable to pay a steep price.”

Brian Weiss, M.D.

          “Self-love is the basis for love of others. It is where real charity begins. When you love yourself, it will spill over. When you don’t love yourself, your energy will consciously or unconsciously be focused on finding it, and you won’t have time for anybody else.

          True self-love doesn’t need to be broadcast or publicly displayed. It is an inner state, a feeling, a strength, a happiness; it is security. Remember, souls are part of the One, which is love. We all have souls. We are always loved. We can always love in return.”

Brian Weiss, M.D.

Teilhard de Chardin

          To remember that we are souls, that we are immortal and always exist in a vast sea of energy, is the key to joy and happiness. In this energetic sea, a host of helping spirits nudge us along our destiny’s pathway, our evolutionary journey toward God-consciousness. We are not in competition with any other souls. We have our path, and they have theirs. There is no race, only a cooperative group journey toward the light of awareness. Souls who are more progressed or evolved reach back with love and compassion to help those behind. The last soul to complete its journey is worth no less than the first.

Messages from the Masters by Brian Weiss, M.D.

          Grace……can supersede karma. Grace is divine intervention, a loving hand reaching down from the heavens to help us, to ease our burden and our suffering. Once we have learned the lesson, there is no need for further suffering, even if the karmic debt has not been fully repaid

          We are here to learn, not to suffer.

          We live in a world more overpopulated today than ever before, resulting in a diminished identity of the individual. Add to this the greatest prevalence of chemical dependency of all time. Drugs cloud the progress of the soul.

          We are guests in this world, and we must remember that we are souls creating experiences in a human form and aiming to bring soul consciousness into a material form. As soon as we start, with trust, to commit to a higher divine guidance, we can obtain all the help that is necessary for spiritual growth.

          When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world.

          Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness. This is the I am that is deeper than name and form.

          “Pain tells us that we have put our survival onto something that is a violation of some principle of consciousness.”

Healing and Recovery by David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D

          “With humility comes the willingness to stop trying to control or change other people or life situations or events ostensibly 'for their own good'. To be a committed spiritual seeker, it is necessary to relinquish the desire to be 'right' or of imaginary value to society. In fact, nobody's ego or belief systems are of any value to society at all. The world is neither good nor bad nor defective, nor is it in need of help or modification because its appearance is only a projection of one's own mind. No such world exists.”

Pema Chodron

          While the energy of our thoughts, speech, and actions is powerful, this energy is infinitely more powerful when we join together with others. When we come together as a group, with a common purpose and commitment to mindful action, we produce an energy of collective concentration far superior to our own individual concentration. This energy further helps us to cultivate compassion and understanding. If we practice mindful sitting, walking, speaking and listening together as a group, then everyone can feel the collective energy and everyone can receive nourishment and healing.

          This collective energy can lead to collective insight and to a collective awakening.

          Our collective compassion, mindfulness and concentration nourishes us, but it also can help to reestablish the Earth’s equilibrium and restore balance. Together we can bring about real transformation for ourselves and for the world

          The true answers to the mystery of life after death remain locked behind a spiritual door for most people. This is because we have built-in amnesia about our soul identity which, on a conscious level, aids in the merging of the soul and human brain. In the last few years the general public has heard about people who temporarily died and then came back to life to tell about seeing a long tunnel, bright lights, and even brief encounters with friendly spirits. But none of these accounts written in the many books on reincarnation has ever given us anything more than a glimpse of all there is to know about life after death.

          This book is an intimate journal about the spirit world. It provides a series of actual case histories which reveal in explicit detail what happens to us when life on Earth is over. You will be taken beyond the spiritual tunnel and enter the spirit world itself to learn what transpires for souls before they finally return to earth in another life.

Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives

by Michael Newton, Ph.D

          In a wat temple in the mountains of Northern Thailand, a Buddhist teacher once reminded me of a simple truth. “Life,” he said, “is offered as a means of self-expression, only giving us what we seek when we listen to the heart.” The highest forms of this expression are acts of kindness. Our soul may be traveling away from a permanent home, but we are not just tourists. We bear responsibility in the evolution of a higher consciousness for ourselves and others in life. Thus, our journey is a collective one.

          We are divine but imperfect beings who exist in two worlds, material and spiritual. It is our destiny to shuttle back and forth between these universes through space and time while we learn to master ourselves and acquire knowledge. We must trust in this process with patience and determination. Our essence is not fully knowable in most physical hosts, but Self is never lost because we always remain connected to both worlds.

          “Everyone deserves love and appreciation. If there is someone in the world whom we do not love, it is our blessing to work this out within ourselves. A very key spiritual principle, echoed in the Cayce readings as well as mainstream psychology, is that whatever we see in others that makes us angry, sad or jealous is a reflection of an issue we have in ourselves. If we can learn to love, respect and forgive ourselves, then we will not be angered and offended by what we see in others.”

          “…Disease, though apparently so cruel, is in itself beneficent and for our good and, if rightly interpreted, it will guide us to our essential faults. If properly treated, it will be the cause of the removal of those faults and leave us better and greater than before. Suffering is a corrective to point out a lesson which by other means we have failed to grasp, and never can it be eradicated until that lesson is learnt. Let it also be known that in those who understand and are able to read the significance of premonitory symptoms disease may be prevented before its onset or aborted in its earlier stages if the proper corrective spiritual and mental efforts be undertaken. Nor need any case despair, however severe, for the fact that the individual is still granted physical life indicates that the Soul who rules is not without hope.”

          “Enlightenment is related to how you see, not what you do. And yet, when you See Truly, then what you do, or how you live your life, automatically adjusts to reflect who you are. The opposite has also been true. You chose to look upon sin and death, and were surprised when a world rose around you that seemed to support your decision. What do you think will happen if you choose to See only Life? Is it possible that the former world will be replaced by one where only Light Prevails? If the world you perceive is not real, but rather, is the extension of the decisions you make about yourself, then this shouldn’t surprise you at all.

          “This is why I am calling you to See as God Sees every moment, for it is the only way to release the world you thought was there, in favor of a world that reflects who you really are.”

The Art of Spiritual Peacemaking, by James Twyman

          “In the moment that I made the decision to go on toward death, I became aware of a new level of truth.

          I discovered that since I’d realized who I really was and understood the magnificence of my true self, if I chose to go back to life, my body would heal rapidly—not in months or weeks, but in days! I knew that the doctors wouldn’t be able to find a trace of cancer if I chose to go back into my body!

          It was then that I understood that my body is only a reflection of my internal state. If my inner self were aware of its greatness and connection with All-that-is, my body would soon reflect that and heal rapidly…..

          ….It felt as though I had a purpose to fulfill. I perceived that I wouldn’t have to go out and search for what I was supposed to do—it would unfold before me…..I simply had to allow it to unfold.

          To access this state of allowing, the only thing I had to do was be myself! I realized that all those years, all I ever had to do was be myself, without judgment or feeling that I was flawed. At the same time, I understood that at the core, our essence is made of pure love. We are pure love—every single one of us. How can we not be, if we come from the Whole and return to it. I knew that realizing this meant never being afraid of who we are. Therefore, being love and being our true self is one and the same thing!

          …..I understood that merely by being the love I truly am, I would heal both myself and others. ……If we’re all One, all facets of the same Whole, which is unconditional love, then of course who we are is love! I knew that was really the only purpose of life: to be our self, live our truth, and be the love that we are.

          As though to confirm my realization, I became aware of both my father and Soni [both of whom had transitioned to spirit] communicating to me: Now that you know the truth of who you are, go back and live your life fearlessly!

          "Lord," I prayed, "am I dead or alive?"

          A dazzling play of light filled the whole horizon. A soft rumbling vibration formed itself into words: "What has life or death to do with light? In the image of My light I have made you. The relativities of life and death belong to the cosmic dream. Behold your dreamless being! Awake, My child, awake!"

Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda

          Truth is inseparable from who you are. The very Being that you are is Truth. Jesus said: ‘I am the way and the truth and the life.’ Jesus referred to the innermost ‘I Am’, the essence identity of every man and woman, every life-form. He speaks of the life that you are. Christian mystics call this the ‘Christ within’.

          When you are in touch with that dimension within yourself—and being in touch with it is your natural state, all your actions and relationships will reflect the oneness with all life that you sense deep within. This is love. Laws, commandments, rules and regulations are necessary for those who are cut off from who they are, the Truth within.

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.

Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,

some momentary awareness comes

as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,

who violently sweep your house

empty of its furniture,

still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out

for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,

meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes

because each has been sent

as a guide from beyond.

by Jelaluddin Rumi,

          “Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
