The Wonder and Glory of Who You Are


“All [masters] live today even as they did then, in the days of what you call your past. And all the masters and all the messengers – Buddha, Abraham, Baha’u’liah, Jesus, Krishna, Moses, Muhammad, and all the others – love you today as they did then, and invite you today as they did then to accept and embrace the wonder and the glory of Who You Are.”           

–Neale Donald Walsch (American Writer, 1943-)

Natural Knowledge


“Natural knowledge is that which the soul can acquire through the use of its natural faculties and powers when investigating creation and the cause of creation — in so far, of course, as this is possible for a soul bound to matter…

Supranatural knowledge, on the other hand, is that which enters the intellect in a manner transcending its own means and power; that is to say, the intelligible objects that constitute such knowledge surpass the capacity of an intellect joined to a body, so that a knowledge of them pertains naturally only to an intellect which is free from the body.

Such knowledge is infused by God alone when He finds an intellect purified of all material attachment and inspired by divine love.”

–St. Theodoros, the Great Ascetic (a.k.a. Theodore of Edessa, Monk in the Monastery of St. Sabas near Jerusalem and Bishop of Edessa in Syria, Ninth Century)

Awakening Through Adversity

“Trials, difficulties, and challenges bring us to our senses about our lives. They can serve as vehicles of realization, helping us to understand why we are here and how necessary the spiritual journey is for us.

They awaken us to the serious purpose of life and inspire us not to waste this opportunity on a halfhearted existence.”

–Wayne Teasdale (American Catholic Monk and Proponent of Interfaith Dialogue, 1945-2004)
