God is intelligence occupied with knowing itself. Meister Eckhart (1260)
Silence is a source of Great Strength. Lao Tse (604 B.C.E.)
I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the Lord, do all these things.
Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need. Mary Baker Eddy (1821)
How small the mind of man to comprehend the great,
The Good, the Infinite, the Mind of God;
With what impetuosity he rushes in
To tell how God does this, thinks that, feels so,
All based upon his own mentality so tried:
He separates the acts of God from God himself,
As he distinguished the thinker from the object thought;
Nor does he understand the single basic law
When God conceives, then got the Concept is,
And when he Thinks, the Thinking, Thought and God are one;
When God creates, then God Creation is,
the Will, the Thought, the Act, each one is God Himself;
No time is there when they existed Not,
Just as no time is there when God Himself was not,
No time He will not be, for God is Time,
And yet in Him no Time exists, for God's timelessness.
Michael Dylan (1957)
You grieve for those for whom you should not grieve. The wise grieve neither for the living nor the dead. Never at any time was I not, nor thou, nor these princes of man, nor shall we ever cease to be. The unreal has no being, the real never ceases to be. Bhaghavad-Gita (500 B.C.E.)
The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.
How does the ocean become the king of all rivers and streams? Because it is lower than they are. Humility gives it its power. Lao Tse (604 B.C.E.)
By humility, out of an enemy He has made a friend, which is more than to have created a new earth. Meister Eckhart (1260)
Let them know that you alone,
whose name is the Lord,
are the Most High over all the earth.
The Lord is my light and my salvation so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? Old Testament
The Void is that which stands right in the middle of "this" and "that." The void is all inclusive, having no opposite - there is nothing which it excludes or opposes. It is a living void, because all forms come out of it and whoever realizes the void is filled with life and power and the love of all things. Bruce Lee (1940)
And this, our life exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything. William Shakespeare (1564)
Earth is crammed with heaven, and every common bush afire with God. Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806)
He raises the afflicted from a dunghill
For he will settle him with the Rulers of the people.
My Father supports me, protects me, and directs me in all things. His care for me is infinite, and is with me forever. I am eternally blessed as His Son. A Course In Miracles (1975)
Why wait for Heaven? Those who seek the light are merely covering their eyes. The light is in them now. A Course In Miracles (1975)
In the seen, there is only the seen,
in the heard, there is only the heard,
in the sensed, there is only the sensed,
in the cognized, there is only the cognized.
Thus you should see that
indeed there is no thing here;
this, Bahiya, is how you should train yourself.
Since, Bahiya, there is for you
in the seen, only the seen,
in the heard, only the heard,
in the sensed, only the sensed,
in the cognized, only the cognized,
and you see that there is no thing here,
you will therefore see that
indeed there is no thing there.
As you see that there is no thing there,
you will see that
you are therefore located neither in the world of this,
nor in the world of that,
nor in any place
betwixt the two.
This alone is the end of suffering.
Buddhism (500 B.C.E.)
If you would convince a man that he does wrong, do right. Men will believe what they see. Henry David Thoreau (1817)
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. Plato (427 B.C.E.)
All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth
With a Love like that,
It Lights the
For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall never be shaken.
I order you, O sleeper, to awake! I did not create you to be held a prisoner in hell. Rise from the dead, for I am the life of the dead. Rise up, work of my hands, you were created in my image. Rise, let us leave this place, for you are in me and I am in you. Together we form only one person and we cannot be separated! Christian Homily
Jews call this Word the Law; Christians call it the Logos or the blueprint; Taoists call it the Eternal Tao; Buddhists call it Emptiness or the Great Compassion; Hindus call it Brahman; Sufi Muslims call it the dance; and science speaks of universal theories. But we are all pointing to one underlying truth that we all strive toward in ten thousand ways. We all somehow believe it is a coherent and even a benevolent universe. Maybe that is the very heart of the meaning of faith. It is surely the Perennial Tradition discovered by all people of goodwill and sincere search. Richard Rohr (1943)
God is gathering us out of all regions till he can make resurrection of our own hearts from the very earth, and teach us that we are all of one substance, and members of one another; for the one who loves his neighbor loves God, and the one who loves God, loves his own soul. St. Anthony Of The Desert (251)
"People stop being children when they start laughing at their ignorance. "- Kyaciss Pfiell
"Origen says the soul's quest of God comes by self-observation. If she knew herself she would know God also. "- Meister Eckhart
"He who knows others is wise; He who knows himself is enlightened. "- Lao Tse
"Therefore, if God's essence is to be seen at all, it must be that the intellect sees it through the divine essence itself; so that in that vision the divine essence is both the object and the medium of vision. "- Thomas Aquinas
"Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way. "- American Indian
""Is there anything that I can do to make myself enlightened?" "As little as you can do to make the sun rise in the morning." "Then of what use are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?" "To make sure you are not asleep when the sun begins to rise." "- Anthony De Mello
"If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's Gift!), If you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, If you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, You will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, To know when you can get no further by your own action, This is the right beginning! "- Lao Tse
