The Creative and Controlling Force of the Universe


“Acting from the highest levels in his being, man is the creative and controlling force in the Universe;…. Hence Maeterlinck’s famous saying, ‘Let us always remember that nothing befalls us that is not of the nature of ourselves.’”      

–Christmas Humphreys (English Judge, Author and Buddhist Philosopher, 1901-1983)

“Reincarnation: The Phoenix Fire Mystery : An East-West Dialogue on Death and Rebirth from the Worlds of Religion, Science, Psychology, Philosophy” (Sylvia Cranston)

Work On Yourself and You Work On The World


“We work on ourselves then, in order to help others. And we help others as a vehicle for working on ourselves.”  

–Ram Dass (a.k.a. Richard Alpert, American Spiritual Teacher, Author and Lecturer, 1931-)

“A vacuum cannot exist in nature. An empty space is immediately filled by something else. And this law is effective on all levels. If what you give is luminous, radiant, beneficial, in return you will receive elements of the same quality, with the same luminous, radiant quintessence. But if you emanate something filthy, you will at once be filled with filth.”  

–Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov (Bulgarian Spiritual Master, 1900-1986)


Necessary Steps on the Path


“When the aspirant can grow to love his neighbors for their struggles and faults, and utterly abstain from any critical feeling, then ‘will all things be added unto him.’ There will be no barriers to prevent it. Like attracts like, and his own honesty and charity will inevitably draw to him as to a magnet all that is good.”           

–Vera Stanley Alder (English Painter and Mystic, 1898-1984)

Good Works

“Paradoxically, it’s most often our smallest, most anonymously done good works that have the greatest spiritual impact in and on this world.”     

–Thom Hartmann (American Author, Psychotherapist and Radio Talk Show Host, 1951-)

Helping Others to Help Yourself


“If you help others, you will be helped, perhaps tomorrow, perhaps in one hundred years, but you will be helped. Nature must pay off her debt: it is a mathematical law and all life is mathematics.”           

–George Gurdjieff (Armenian-born Adept, Teacher and Writer, c.1873-1949)
