Divine Love


“. . . divine love is not something belonging to God: it is God Himself.”

–Henri Louis Bergson (French Philosopher, 1859-1941)

Deserving Love and Affection


“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”          

–Buddha (a.k.a. “The Awakened”, a.k.a. Siddhartha Gautama, Indian Religious Figure and Founder of Buddhism, c.563 B.C.- c.483 B.C.)

Freeing Each Other


“Real love exists between people who are able to free each other.”   

–Sri Swami Chidananda Saraswati (Indian Yogi, Jnani, Spiritual Leader, Author, and, from 1963-2008, President of the Divine Life Society, 1916-2008)

Harnessing the Power of Love

“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of Love, and then, for the second time in the history of the world, humans will discover fire.”       

–Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

 (French Jesuit Priest, Mystic, Paleontologist and Author, 1881-1955)  

“Pierre Teilhard De Chardin: Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters Series)” (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Ursula King)

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)

The Finding of the Third Eye  

Loving Acceptance

“A conscious being knows that life always works best when we operate from a loving space that lets us receive and experience other people no matter what they do or say as no different from ourselves.”         

–Ken Keyes (American “New Age” Author and Lecturer, 1921-1995)

“Handbook to Higher Consciousness: The Workbook (Keyes, Jr, Ken)” (Jr. Ken Keyes, Penny Keyes)

The Pulse of Youth


“The heart that once has been bathed in love’s pure fountain retains the pulse of youth forever.”    

–Walter Savage Landor (English Poet and Essayist, 1775-1864)   

Compassion, Learning, Love and Forgiveness


“To pine for an alternative past is a waste of energy. In the pristine world of your infinite spiritual self, there is no sin or negative energy. There is only compassion, learning, and unconditional love and forgiveness. Remind yourself and those around you of this fact. In the light of God, everything is healed and seen to be perfect.”    

–Stuart Wilde (English-born Author, Lecturer and Humorist 1946-)   

What We Need to Advance


“The conditions of advance are these: global unity of mankind’s noetic organization or system of awareness, but a high degree of variety within that unity; love, with goodwill and full cooperation; personal integration and internal harmony; and increasing knowledge….

We, mankind, contain the possibilities of the earth’s immense future, and can realize more and more of them on condition that we increase our knowledge and our love.”

–Julian Huxley (English Evolutionary Biologist, 1887-1975)   

“The Phenomenon of Man” (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin)

Eternal WIsdom


“Eternal Wisdom: ‘I go forth to meet those who seek Me, and I receive with affectionate joy such as desire My love. All that you can ever experience of My sweet love in time is but as a little drop to the ocean of My love in eternity.”

–Henry Suso (a.k.a. Amandus, a.k.a. Heinrich Seuse, German Mystic, c.1300-1366)
