We Create Reality with our Thoughts

“As is one’s consciousness, so one becomes: that is the eternal secret…. The mind should be kept in check until it has dissolved into the heart: this is both knowledge and liberation. The rest is just multiplication of books.”
-Maitri Upanishad, trans. Valerie J. Roebuck

“I saw that the universe is not comprised of dead matter, but is on the contrary, a living presence; I became conscious within myself of eternal life… I saw that everyone is immortal; that the cosmic order is such that… all things work together for the good of each and all; that the foundation principle of the world, of all the worlds, is what we call love, and that happiness of each and all is in the long run absolutely certain.”
-R.M. Bucke, Cosmic Consciousess

“A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘universe’ –a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest –a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.”
-Albert Einstein

“Whatever you are thinking and feeling today, is creating your future. Everything we think about and thank about, we bring about. Our body is the product of our thoughts. Everything that is coming into your life, you are attracting into your life. What ever is going on in your mind is attracted to you.”
-The Secret

“You reap what you sow.”
-Bible, Galatians VI, King James Version

“I know the law and what I express returns to me as truly as I express it. Therefore I express only the good and the good only returns to me as good.”
-Baird T. Spalding

“I attract into my life whatever I give my attention, energy or focus to.”
-Michael Losier

“According to your faith, be it unto you. All things are possible to them that believe."
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“For as he thinketh in this heart, so he is."
-Proverbs 23:7

“It (the caterpillar) imagines itself to be a butterfly for so long that in the end it becomes a butterfly. Actually it always was a butterfly, and only time and concentration were necessary for cause to reveal itself in effect. Cause is effect concealed; effect is cause revealed... Whatever you imagine you most surely will become."
-Svoboda, Kundalini

“Our life is shaped by our minds; we become what we think. Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves.”
-The Buddha, Easwaran, Dhummapada

“This is a subtle truth: whatever you love, you are.” -Rumi, Birdsong

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you... Let him who seek continue seeking until he finds.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“We soon find that we have the power to enslave or to free ourselves... Once having chosen to shape our thoughts along definite lines, we soon find that we are sustained by Omnipotence itself and find as we go through the discipline necessary to assure ourselves of mastery, that it is a glorious privilege -this power which we have to free ourselves and our fellow men from bondage through the process of divine thinking.”
-Baird T. Spalding, Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East

“Since beginning-less time, this mind has never been generated and has never been extinguished, is neither blue nor yellow, is without shape and without characteristic, does not belong to being and nonbeing, does not consider new or old, is neither long nor short, and is nether large nor small. It transcends all limitations, names, traces, and correlations. It in itself -that's it! To activate thoughts is to go against it! It is like space, which is boundless and immeasurable. It is only this one mind that is Buddha; there is no distinction between Buddhas and sentient beings. However, sentient beings are attached to characteristics and seek outside of themselves. Seeking it, they lose it even more. Sending the Buddha in search for the Buddha, grasping the mind with the mind, they may exhaust themselves in striving for an entire eon but will never get it. They do not understand that if they cease their thoughts and end their thinking, the Buddha will automatically be present.”
-Duanji, Zen Texts

“There are but two events in the world: that which was in existence before consciousness began to assert it self, is now, and ever shall be; and the things that humanity has thought and will think about. That which was before consciousness began, is eternal; that which humanity thinks is changeable and inconstant; that which was, before consciousness began, is Truth; that which humanity thinks is truth, is truth to them. When the Law of Truth comes to consciousness, it will erase all that humanity has ever thought erroneously... Man sees God as Cosmic Spirit pervading everything; then, with the subtleties of mind through his thought, he does not hesitate to review the fundamentals that have placed him where he is and made him that which he is. Thus he is again one with his sources. He knows that this source is the ever-silent side of his God-mind linked consciously in thought and amalgamated with Infinite Mind.”
-Spalding, V.3 pg.54

“As the Holy One I recognize thee, O Wise
When he came to me as Good Mind;
The Silent Thought taught me the greatest
So that I might proclaim it.”
-Zoroastrianism, Avesta, Yasna 45.15

“Nothing is either good or bad but thinking makes it so.” –Shakespeare

“I am affected only by my thoughts.”
-Course of Miracles

“There is but One. It makes no difference how long you have thought separation; you have never accomplished separation. It is only your thoughts that have caused separation to you.”

“In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.”
- Buddha

“You dream of a desert, where mirages are your rulers and tormentors, yet these images come from you. Father did not make the desert, and your home is still with him. To return, forgive your brother, for only then do you forgive yourself.” –Jesus, The Disappearing Universe, Gary Renard

“3 things a man is: what he thinks he is, what others think he is, what he really is.”
-Douglas Monroe

“I am whoever you think I am. It makes no difference to me.”
-Drunkpa Kunly, The Divine Madman

This is a Play, Love pretending to be many things

“Let those who seek, continue to seek until they find. When they find, they will become troubled. When they become troubled, they will be astonished… Recognize that which is within your sight, and that which is hidden to you will become plain to you.”
–Gospel of Thomas

“We are God dreaming that we are not God.” –Don Miguel Ruiz

“God said, ‘The world is a play, a children’s game and you are the children.’”

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and thier entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts....”
–William Shakespeare, As You Like It II vii 139.

“This life of the world is nothing but a sport and a play; but, verily, the abode of the next world –that is, life. If they did but know!”
-Qu’ran, Part II, tran. E. H. Palmer

“The yogi provides minds for the bodies he creates through his personality… The yogi thinks differently through different minds, acts differently through different bodies, but the original mind that controls them all remains unaffected.”
-Yogasutra, Aphorisms of Yoga

“There is nothing but love. Don’t let the masks and postures fool you.”
–Emmanuel’s Book

“Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Become passer-bys.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“You have physical bodies that ache and sometimes scream. You have emotions that seem to tear you apart. I urge you in those times of such stress, ask yourself who is it that is experiencing this. And the ‘who’ that is aware of the experiencing, not lost in it, but aware of it, will be the bearer of the Light.”
–Emmanuel’s Book

“Of these two thousand ‘I’ and ‘we’ people, which am I?… There is an original inside me. What’s here is a mirror for that, for you. If you are joyful, I am. If you grieve, or if you’re bitter, or graceful, I take on those qualities.” –Rumi

Who is using the mind?

“Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul? I cannot stop asking… Quit acting like the wolf and feel the shepard’s love filling you. Be empty of worrying. Think of who created thought!” –Rumi

“Not one of us has to conceive himself. We have been perfectly conceived and are always held in the perfect mind of God as perfect beings. By having this realization brought to your consciousness, we can contact the divine mind and so re-conceive what God has already conceived for us. This is what Jesus called 'born again.' It is the great gift silence has to offer us; for by contacting the God Mind we can think with God Mind and know ourselves as we are in reality rather than as we have thought ourselves to be... How equally important is the silence or the stilling of the personal mind, that the God Mind in all its splendor may illumine the consciousness.”

“So long as mind is limited, the joy it can enjoy is limited; as soon as it merges itself into the Self, which is unlimited, the joy it can enjoy is unlimited... dissolve it [individual limited mind] in the universal unlimited mind; that solved, the problem of life is solved, the individual gets his freedom.”
-Yogasutras, Aphorisms of Yoga

“The activities of mind are known to the Self; for Self is the Lord, who remains unaffected... He who sees clearly, refuses to identify mind with Self.”
-Yogasutras, Aphorisms of Yoga

“Here we must realize that God is above the mortal, and the mortal cannot help in any way. In this way man would learn in a short time to express perfection. The one great thing man must learn is to get forever through and out of the psychic or mind forces and express directly from God, for all psychic forces are created wholly by man and they are likely to mislead.”

“Unless your mind is in the service of the heart it becomes a warped and twisted master.”
-Emmanuel’s Book

“If you do not believe in limitations, you are free. True love has no limits. When our minds are in control and not our hearts, we will almost always suffer.”
-Drunvalo Melchizedek

“When intellect becomes as pure as Self, liberation follows.”- Yogasutras, Aphorisms of Yoga

“When mind refuses to move, when it has nothing for discrimination, nothing to apportion between Self and non-self, when by concentration it loses itself into Self… the Self, the mind, the world become one; the world disappears, the mind disappears, only the Self remains.”
- Yogasutras, Aphorisms of Yoga

“‘I alone am this world! I am all! –this is the highest world. Now, this is the aspect of his that is beyond what appears to be good, freed from what is bad, and without fear. It’s like this. A man embraced by a woman he loves is oblivious to anything within and without, so this person embraced by the Self (atman) consisting of knowledge is oblivious to everything within or without. Clearly this is the aspect of his where all desires are fulfilled, where the Self is the only desire, and which is free from desires and far from sorrows. Here a father is not a father, a mother is not a mother, worlds are not worlds, gods are not gods, and Vedas are not Vedas… Now, he does not see here… there isn’t a second reality here that he could see as something distinct and separate from himself.”
-Upanishads, 4.3.25

“When a sensible man ceases to see different identities due to different material bodies and he sees how beings are expanded everywhere, he attains to the Brahman conception.”

“The seer and the seen are both reflected in the mind, hence it takes any conceivable form.”
-Yogasutras, Aphorisms of Yoga

“Therefore the sage tends to matters without conscious effort. . . . Because he acts without conscious effort nothing remains ungoverned.”

“One who can see that all activities are performed by the body, which is created of material nature, and sees that the self does nothing, actually sees.”

“Those with the vision of eternity can see that the imperishable soul is transcendental, eternal, and beyond the modes of nature. Despite contact with the material body, O Arjuna, the soul neither does anything nor is entangled.”

“Although I cannot seal an inactive mind in an experience that is inexpressible and inconceivable, I vow to never put faith in my minds conceptions -keep this vow in your hearts my friends.”
-Drungpa Kunley, The Divine Madman

“He who knows that all things are his mind, that all which he meets are friendly is ever joyful.”
-100 Thousand Songs of Milerpa

“You ask, how can we know the infinite? I answer, not by reason. It is the office of reason to distinguish and define. The infinite therefore cannot be ranked amoung its objects [sic]. You can only apprehend the infinite by a faculty superior to reason, by entering a state in which you are your finite self no longer –in which the divine essence is communicated to you. This is ecstasy. It is the liberation of your mind from its finite consciousness. Like only can apprehend like; when you thus cease to be finite, you become one with the infinite. In the reduction of your soul to its simplest self, its divine essence, you realize this union –this identity.”-Plotinus

All is True Self, all is One

“‘When will the kingdom come?’ ‘It will not be said, Look here it is, or, Look there it is. Rather, the father’s kingdom is spread out upon the earth, and people do not see it.”
–Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“That which is diversity has been misconceived from the personal, or external viewpoint, to be separation. The great work for each soul is to lift the personal view point to such great heights in consciousness that it becomes one with the whole.” –Baird T. Spalding

“The ancient Law of Microcosm and Macrocosm tells us there is no real difference between the vast external universe and the limited internal universe of the human body, except that the individual believes itself to be different.”
-Svoboda, Kundalini, pg 52

“If the doors to perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.”
–William Blake

“Cleanse your vision into the mystery of things: can you make it spotless?” –Tao-te-Ching

“I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am guarding it until it blazes.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“He who is near me is near the fire.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“One who sees the Supersoul accompanying the individual soul in all bodies and who understands that neither the soul nor the Supersoul within the destructible body is ever destroyed, actually sees.”

“‘The spirit is the one who has been using the mind. Each time you have a conscious thought of raising your vibration, that thought has power and force and clarity. You have zeroed in on what it is that you wish to accomplish. That thought goes out like a clear, straight arrow. It doesn't stop. All other consciousnesses who become aware of that clear straight thought can add power to it... If you can actually allow your mind to accept the fact that truly every molecule of everything is light, and light is synonymous with love, you can bring this into your belief system and can then work with every atom of your body. You can turn up the power. You can let the light shine. By turning up the power, by turning on the light, by speeding up that vibration, you can actually dissemble your physical form... If our mind is our greatest tool, and if we do wish to use it to its fullest capacity, then we wish to consciously connect with those realms of light. So we send out those vibrations. We consciously practice thinking on light, on expansiveness, beyond the stars... Our intent is that incredibly strong lifeline that we can send out. It has to be done in some disciplined manner, however. There has to be continuity of some kind... Consciously focus your thoughts on light. Not just from without, but light that radiates from every cell of your living being. From the planet herself, from each plant and animal, and from the very air and water themselves. Think that every single thing you come in contact with or even think of, is in essence made of light. And the core of light, the very bottom line, is love,’”
-Camon, The Convoluted Universe

“One who sees the Supersoul equally present everywhere, in every living being, does not degrade himself by his mind. Thus he approaches the transcendental destination.”
–Bhagavad-Gita, As it is

“Realize that heaven is a perfect state of consciousness, a perfect world here and now, and all we need to do is accept it. It is here all about us, waiting for us to open the inner eye. Through that eye our bodies shall be made light, the light which is neither of the sun or the moon but of the Father; and the Father is right here in the very inner most part of our being,”
-Spalding, L.T.M.F.E.

“If thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” –Jesus.

“The Christ is God flowing through the individual. One standing in that attitude has everything to use and all of the principle flows through him… Now divinity is God in everything, in every form. The Christ means the power to realize that divinity within. Then don’t we see the Christ in every face, in every form?”
-Baird T. Spalding

“When someone knows the one who is extremely fine, like the spume on top of the ghee, as the Benign One hidden in all beings; when someone recognizes him, who alone encompasses the universe, as God –he is freed from all fetters. That God, the maker of all, the immense self (atman), is always residing in the hearts of people. With the heart, with insight, with thought he has been contemplated. Those who know this become immortal.”
–The Upanishads

“As you accept -not blindingly, not uncaringly, but with an ever deepening awareness -those circumstances involved in human existence, you will more and more be reflecting your own light. There will come a day regardless of what is transpiring in the human community you will regard it as a blaze of light, and you will be free.”
-Emmanuel's Book

“Everywhere are His hands and legs, His eyes, heads and faces, and He has ears everywhere. In this way the Supersoul exists, pervading all things.”

“This self (atman) of yours who is present within but is different from the earth, whom the earth does not know, whose body is the earth, and who controls the earth from within –he is the inner controller, the immortal…”
–The Upanishads

“I am the light that is over all things. I am all: from me all has come forth and to me all has reached. Split a piece of wood, I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find me there.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Lo, I am with you always means when you look for God, God is in the look of your eyes, in the thought of looking, nearer to you then yourself or things that have happened to you. There is no need to go outside.” -Rumi

“The self within all is this self of yours... You can’t see the seer who does the seeing; you can’t hear the hearer who does the hearing; you can’t think of the thinker that does the thinking; and you can’t perceive the perceiver who does the perceiving. The self within all is this self of yours. All else besides this is grief!”
-Brhadaranyaka Upanishad

“There is something, amorphous and complete, that was born before Heaven and Earth. Obscure, oh, it stands alone, unchanged. It operates everywhere but is free from danger, thus we may consider it the mother of all under Heaven.”
-Tao-te Ching

“The self has entered his body, this dense jumble. If a man finds him, recognizes him, he’s the maker of everything –the author of all! The world is his –he’s the world itself! When a man clearly sees this self as god, the lord of what was and what will be, he will not seek to hide from him… The breathing behind breathing, the sight behind sight, the hearing behind hearing, the thinking behind thinking. Those who know this perceive Brahman, the first, the ancient. With the mind alone must one behold it –immeasurable and immovable. The self is spotless and beyond space, unborn, immense, immovable… He is a Brahmans eternal greatness –he’s not made greater of smaller by action.”

“Yet in this body there is another, a transcendental enjoyer, who is the Lord, the supreme proprietor, who exists as the over seer and permitter, and who is known as the Supersoul.”

“‘The self (atman) is then his source of light. It is by the light of the self that a person sits down, goes about, does his work and returns.’ ‘Which self is that?’ ‘It is this person –the one that consists of perception among the vital functions (prana), the one that is the inner light within the heart.”
-The Upanishads

“It is large, heavenly, of inconceivable form; yet it appears more minute than the minute. It is farther than the farthest, yet it is here at hand; it is right here within those who see, hidden within the cave of the heart.”
-Mundaka Upanishad

“When we look for it but see it not, we call it the invisible. When we listen for it but hear it not, we call it the inaudible. When we try to touch it but find it not, we call it the imperceptible. Because these three aspects of it are impossible to probe, it remains a single amorphous unity.”
-Tao-te Ching

“Whatever is down here, the same is over there; and what is over there is replicated down here. From death to death he goes, who sees here any kind of diversity. With your mind alone you must understand it –there is here no diversity at all!”
-The Upanishads

“Although the Supersoul appears to be divided among beings, He is never divided. He is situated as one. He is the source of light in all luminous objects. He is beyond the darkness of matter and is un-manifested. He is knowledge, and he is the goal of knowledge. He is situated in everyone’s heart.”

“I am you and you are me, and where you are, there I am. I am sown in all things, and when you gather me, it is you, yourself, whom you gather.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Eve

“God with a big G is in all things.”
-Barbara Marciniak Bringers of the Dawn

“The Supreme Truth exists outside and inside all living beings, the moving and nonmoving. Because He is subtle, He is beyond the power of the material senses to see or to know. Although far, far away, He is also near to all.”

“The Supersoul is the original source of all senses, yet he is without senses. He is unattached, although He is the maintainer of all living beings. He transcends the modes of nature, and at the same time He is the master of all the modes of material nature.”

“As a blazing fire turns firewood to ashes, so does the fire of knowledge burn to ashes all the reactions to material activities.”

“Having obtained real knowledge from a self-realized soul, you will never fall again into such illusion, for by this knowledge you will see that all living beings are but part of the Supreme, or, in other words, are Mine.”

“I am the goal, the sustainer, the master, the witness, the abode, the refuge, and the most dear friend. I am the creation and the annihilation, the basis of everything, the resting place and the eternal seed.”

“God is the name you give to the all-wise, intelligent Spirit, and this Spirit is within as well as without every human being. It is necessary to let God stand forth through you into outer expression. Therefore, it is not necessary to seek knowledge and help from outside sources, when you know that the source of all knowledge, the spirit of all knowledge, the understanding truth is latent within you. Why seek knowledge from without as God the Universal Spirit is within?... There cannot be a deity outside of your body that is not within your body, as all is vibrating or emanating energy. Thus these vibrations flow through your whole body as well as around it and the vibrations of Deity include every atom of your whole body as well as the whole mass of the Universe. Thus, you put God everywhere, before all, within all, around all, enveloping all, and enfolding all. There is not an atom in space that does not have the emanating energy of light and life flowing through it. ”
-Spalding, V. 3, pg126

“It is true that this light is from heaven, as heaven is all about us and is light vibration. The actual focal center or starting point of heaven must be right within my body. Therefore, this heavenly light must come forth from me. The I AM of me must allow this light essence to come in; then I must generate and transform this light energy so that it can be sent out in any density that God, the I AM, desires. When this is done, nothing can resist the power of this pure light…. Just so can you transform God-power and send it out with such force that it is irresistible. It is the God-power, which is recognized all about you, allowed to come in, be generated and transformed within your body, then sent out through the reflector. These things are readily accomplished by all when they stand forth as God, their divine heritage, the Christ of God, all One. This is the divine and definite motto for all humanity. The closer humanity draws to this great healing ray, the earlier will discord and inharmony be erased. If you live freely in this light vibration which is the light of the whole world, and all draw near to it, the closer you will draw to man’s true abiding-place. Thus you find that I AM is the light of the whole world. Behold God, the table is spread. Lift up this mighty one God, this I AM. Lift this body to God and you and all are crowned Lord of All. You do place the crown upon your own head. None can do this for you.”
-Spalding, V3, pg.51

The True Self is Ineffable

“Let yourself experience a world you do not know. Do not give definition, shape, form, or structure to your non knowing. Let the only thing that exists be the experience of self at this moment. From this place, no words are needed, none are adequate.”
-Emmanuel’s Book II

“I need a mouth mouth as wide as the sky to say the nature of a True person, language as large as longing.”

Love is not approached by thought at all.” -Rumi

“He who knows does not speak. He who speaks does not know. One must close ones mouth and close ones gates, blunt ones sharp wit, dissolve ones confused thoughts…”
-Tao-te Ching, Wilheim

-Patanjali’s Yogasutras, translated by Shri Poruhit Swami

They are present in the air, in the water, in the earth...”
-Jesus, in the Essence Gospel of Peace

Become whole, totally aligned, and enlightenment is the result

“When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one in the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; and when you fashion eyes in place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then you will enter the Kingdom.”-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Therefore I say, if he is undivided, he will be filled with light, but if he is divided, he will be filled with darkness.” –Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“In China the three qualities of man’s energy are called the San Bao, or ‘three treasures.’ They are ching, ch’i, and shen, or essence, energy, and consciousness. By transmutation of the three treasures from coarse to subtle form, and by subsequent interaction, a mysterious ‘something’ is conceived. That ‘something’ is the spirit embryo, which, like any baby, requires further gestation prior to final birth. However, should the Taoist yogi be successful in developing the spirit body, he can exist independent of his physical body and is as such immortal… Once ching had been transmuted to ch’i through meditation and yogic breathing, the practitioner discarded the entanglements of mundane life and ‘sought stillness’ so that he could further enliven the shen through the ch’i. (Reportedly, the area where the seedling shen resides is between and behind the eyebrows –the third eye to some.) But once the shen was conceived it had to gestate; once gestated it had to be born; once born it required nourishment… For the Taoist alchemist, the dantien [three finger widths below navel] was the crucible in which the elixir of immortality was brewed. It was there that ching was refined into ch’i, while from the dantien purified ch’i was sent up to the ‘Spirit Valley’ between the eyebrows to give birth to the embryo shen… There was a step further from that point on if the yogi truly desired eternity: The independent shen had to be merged with the Source of All Things, the Tao. In essence, what the teachers were saying was that the personality had to unite with the flow of the whole universe.”
-Kosta Danaos pg. 50

“There are three main knots in the sushumna [the path up the center of the body] that represent the three aspects of consciousness: knowing, feeling, and doing. The Brahma Granthi is feeling and the mind; the Vishnu Granthi is doing and prana; and Rudra Granthi is knowing and jnana (true knowledge). When the three knots are untied, phenomenal reality becomes pervaded by divine energy and the self becomes established in the Sheath of Bliss. Brahma Granthi… most tantric scriptures place it in the Manipura Chakra, the third charka… Vishnu Granthi is located in the area of Anahata Center (heart center), which is also the seat of prana… Rudra Granthi is located in the area of the Ajna Chakra, the area of the third eye. Rudra is the destroyer and is true knowledge. There is nothing to destroy except the illusion that is I-consciousness or ego… Finally, one must get beyond the attachment to I-consciousness, which obstructs the path of Kundalini on its way to Soma Chakra where the supreme truth is realized and non-dual consciousness is achieved. The I-consciousness is like ‘drop-consciousness’ and the truth is the ocean of pure consciousness. The drop and the ocean are one, but the I-consciousness of the drop keeps it separated. ”
-Harish Johari, Chakras pg. 64

“Three are the dwellings of the sons and daughters of man: thought, feeling and body. When these three become as one, you will say to the mountain, ‘mountain move,’ and the mountain will move.”
-Essene Gospels Peace Book 3

“Within our Essence of Mind the Trikaya (Three Bodies) of Buddha are to be found, and they are common to everybody, Because the mind labors under delusions, he knows not his own inner nature; and the result is that he ignores the Trikaya within himself, erroneously thinking they are to be found without. Within yourself you will find the Trikaya which, being the manifestation of the Essence of Mind, are not to be sought from without.”
-Buddhism, Sutra of Hui Neng 6

“The planet is looking for a balance in the self. Since the self is a composite of all things, it is a harmonic that balances all of your extraterrestrial selves, multidimensional selves, and male and female selves. You are incredibly whole beings...Allow yourself to blossom and come into this completeness. No one hinders you but yourself. If you allow completion, there are vistas awaiting you that are beyond your imagination. You are discovering that you need your emotional body and that you need both your femininity and masculinity... Through feeling, you can discover much more...As you access multidimensionality, you must merge male and female... it is not outside yourself that you are looking for a twin flame partner. You are looking for the integration of the female and male essence within yourself. They make one whole.”
-Bringers of the Dawn

“Clearly, the true name of the person in the right eye is Indha [Indra]… What looks like a person in the left, on the other hand, is his wife Viraj. Their meeting place is the space within the heart, their food is the red lump in the heart, and their garment is the mesh-like substance within the heart. The path along which they travel is the vein that goes up from the heart.”
-Brhadaranyaka Upanishad, 4.2.4

“If two make peace with one another in this one house, they will say to the mountain: Be removed, and it will be removed.”
-Gospel of Thomas

“The purpose of Kundalini Yoga is to reunite Shiva and Shakti, to create the eternal form of Shiva, Sadashiva. Sadashiva’s left side is female and the right side is male; the two principles have united but have not yet merged. If they were to merge that would be the end of the play… Sadashiva exists on the cosmic scale; in an individual this deity is called Ardhanarishvara(‘the Lord Who is Half Female’). In order to manifest Sadashiva the Kundalini must be made to rise fully, because the highest manifestation of Shiva in the human being is in the head, the highest part of the body.’ ”
-Svoboda, Kundalini, Aghora II,

“...that light doesn't pour down through time. It rushes up from your chest. There's a sea-parting greatness that anchors our being, and a hard-headed Pharaoh in there too. Seek them out both, these old adversaries. They'll play their parts till the end of days just so you can learn where in the story you are.”

“For there are five trees for you in Paradise which remain undisturbed summer and winter and whose leaves do not fall. Whoever becomes acquainted with them will not experience death.”-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

Top of the Head

“One hundred and one, the veins of the heart. One of them runs up to the crown of the head. Going up by it, he reaches the immortal.”-Katha Upanishad, 6.16

“It comes to us from the Universal through the Christ within, which has already been born within us all. As a minute speck it enters through the Christ, or super conscious mind, the place of receptivity within our selves. Then it must be carried to the mount or highest within our selves, the very top of the head. It is held there. We must then allow the Holy Spirit to descend.”
-Baird T. Spalding Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East:Vol. 1, pg.23

“Man is created perfect in the image of his Creator. Then after closing the door (at the top of the head) and falling from grace into the uninhibited expression of his own human will, he begins the slow climb upward… With this turn man rises upward, bringing into predominant function each of the higher centers. The door at the crown of the head then opens, and he merges into wholeness of all Creation, whence he sprang.” -Book of the Hopi, Frank Waters pg.33

“The human body is a vessel into which consciousness pours, according to the individual capacity, filling the body via the nervous system.”
-Svoboda, 53

“Its roots above, its branches below, this is the eternal banyan tree. That alone is the Bright! That is Brahman! That alone is called the Immortal!”
-Katha Upanishad, 6.1

“It is said that there is an imperishable banyan tree that has its roots upward and its branches down and whose leaves are the Vedic hymns. One who knows this tree is knower of the Vedas. The branches of this tree extend downward and upward, nourished by the three modes of nature. The twigs are the objects of the senses. This tree also has roots going down, and these are bound to the fruitive actions of human society. The real form of this tree cannot be perceived in this world. No one can understand where it ends, where it begins, or where its foundation is. But with determination one must cut down this strongly rooted tree with the weapon of detachment. Thereafter, one must seek that place from which, having gone, one never returns, and there surrender to that Supreme personality of the Godhead from whom everything began and from whom everything has extended since time immemorial.”

“The Lord is on my head like a crown and I shall not be without him, the crown of truth was woven for me and caused your branches to blossom in me, the crown is not dry and sterile, you live and blossom on my head, your fruits are full and perfect and filled with salvation.”
-Odes of Solomon, The Other Bible

“Just as a face clearly appears in a spotless mirror, in the same way, the Self shines in all its splendor in the mind purified by Shiva’s Shaktipat.” (Shaktipat refers to the energy that has risen to the top of the head).
-Abhinavagupta, Paramarthasara.

“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, this is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand and when ye turn to the left.”
-Isaiah, 30:2


“One cannot surrender completely to anything but God… By the act of surrender you realize the absolute control you have over your life. Surrender is a choice –an absolute personal choice… Surrender can be proclaimed as the most selfish act because it leads to total fulfillment… The final lesson for each soul is the total surrender to the will of God manifested in your own heart.”
-Emmanuel’s Book

“Empty thyself and I shall fill thee.”-Jesus

“Look! Even now the King is raining treasure from the palace. But this gold is caught only by those who make an empty space before it.” -Rumi

“The state of grace needs the recipient in order to be complete. You are held in the hand of God and are totally loved, and when that love can be received the circuit is completed.”
–Emmanuel’s Book, Pat Rodegast

“This divine energy of Mine, consisting of the three modes of material nature, is difficult to overcome. But those who have surrendered unto Me can easily cross beyond it.” –Bhagavad-Gita

“ ‘Thou shalt love the lord, thy God, with all thy heart, with all thy soul, with all thy strength, and with all thy mind.’ Think! Does the meaning come? Heart, soul, strength, mind. Is there anything to do at this point but to turn it all over to God, the Holy Spirit, the whole-I-spirit in action?”
-Spalding, LTMFE

“Let go of everything and turn completely to God Spirit, and God Spirit will enter and fill the room and your entire body as well. A great peace will enter your entire body and it will never depart again.”
-Spalding, L.T.M.F.E.

“O scion of Bharata, surrender unto Him utterly. By His grace you will attain transcendental peace and the supreme and eternal abode.”

“Always think of Me, become My devotee, worship Me and offer your homage unto Me. Thus you will come to Me without fail. I promise you this because you are My very dear friend…. Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear.”

“It is in thee, and if thou canst for awhile cease from thinking and willing thou shalt hear unspeakable words of God. When thou standest still from the thinking and willing of self, the eternal hearing, seeing and speaking will be revealed to thee, and so God heareth and seeth through thee.”
-Jacob Behmen

“On this road, therefore, to abandon one’s own way is to enter on the true way, or, to speak more correctly, to pass onwards to the goal; and to forsake one’s own way is to enter on that which has none, namely, God. For the soul that attains to this state has no ways or methods of its own, neither does it nor can it lean upon anything of the kind. I mean ways of understanding, perceiving, or feeling, though it has all ways at the same time, as one who possessing nothing, yet possesseth everything. For the soul courageously resolved on passing, interiorly and exteriorly, beyond the limits of its own nature, enters illimitably within the supernatural, which has no measure, but contains all measure immanent ” –John Yepes a.k.a. St. John of the Cross

“When man becomes one with God, he realizes that he truly is God. This is not blasphemy, but the fruit of total surrender…. the higher we have gone in our contact with the Deity, the more childlike, the more simple, the more beautiful has been his representation…. the child mind is the greatest mind because its innocence is its best and sure defense…. In short it is free to create…. Let men learn to empty themselves completely of their attachment to the earth, so shall they begin to enter into the childlike mind and spirit of creative innocence.”
-Saint Germain on Alchemy, Elizabeth Prophet

Being Childlike is being Godlike

“Once one has access to the mother, through it he can know the child. Once one knows the child, if he again holds onto the mother as long as he lives, no danger shall befall him.” Tao-te Ching

“Except ye become as little children, ye shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to His disciples, ‘These infants being suckled are like those who enter the Kingdom.’”
-Gospel of Thomas

“Whosoever holds fast to life’s completeness is like a new born infant.”
-Tao-te Ching, trans. Richard Wilheim

“Rely exclusively on your vital force, and become perfectly soft: can you play the infant?”
-Tao-te Ching

"Yet I have said, whichever one of you come to be a child will be acquainted with the kingdom and will become superior to John."
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Ye are son of the Great Light. Remember and ye shall be free,”
-Emerald Tablets of Thoth

“If they say to you, ‘Where do you come from?’ say to them, ‘We come from the light, the place where the light came into being by itself, established itself, and appeared in their image.’ If they say to you, ‘Who are you?’ say, ‘We are its children.’”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Raise up the divine child within you to the first born divine.” –Plotinus, last words

“…when in childlike innocence he enters into the divine domain, he finds that all of the universe is his –for now he belongs to all of the universe. This sweet surrender to the mighty currents of cosmic law and purity shows him the need to transfer from higher octaves of light into the lower ramifications of self the power and the glory, the victory and the overcoming, the transmittal and the transmutation…. the consciousness of God that sustains the universe is also within man. Now, if the consciousness of God that sustains the universe is within man, is it unreasonable to suppose that man can also be within the consciousness that sustains the universe? In the macrocosmic-microcosmic interchange, in the great flow of life, of delight, of boundless joy, man senses the unity of all that lives, and he recognizes that his role as a receiver of benefits from the universe entails the necessary conveyance of benefits from his own creative consciousness back into the universe.”
-Saint Germain on Alchemy, Elizabeth Prophet

“When you disrobe without being ashamed and take up your garments and place them under your feet like little children and tread on them then you will see the Son of the Living One, and you will not be afraid.” -Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

The Heart

“This immense, unborn self is none other than the one consisting of the perception here among the vital functions. There, in that space within the heart, he lies- controller of all, the lord of all, the ruler of all!” –The Upanishads

“He who was born before heat, who before the waters was born, who has seen through living beings- Entering the cave of the heart, [one sees] him abiding there.”

-Chandogya Upanishad

“If one is to have enlightenment, one must treasure it up from the heart.”
-Chen Weiming, Tai Chi master

“With love all things are possible. With mindfulness, discipline, and devotion you may come to realize that your creator and your Christ presence are not outside of you, but dwell eternally inside your consciousness. . . . With confidence and ease, you can allow the birth of your ascending Christ consciousness that has been lying hidden in your hearts womb/tomb.”
-Anna, Grandmother of Jesus

“This Supreme Lord who pervades all existence, the true self of all creatures, may be realized through undivided love.”
-Bhagavad-Gita, tran. Easwaran

“The only path that is right for you is the one that is already designed within you. To find this path you have to hear your own heart… While the small mind, in its fear, is rigid and controlling, the deeper part of you will begin to whisper the truth of your eternal safety and your Oneness with God, So listen to your heart. This is where your light is and your truth.”
-Emmanuel’s Book

“The followers of the Heart, knowers of the essence, do not consider other religion, just as bees who serve the blossom of the coral tree don’t seek to obtain other flowers.” -Kularnara Tantra

“When your Shakti is awakened, all the past impressions and karmas come out. That is why when you first receive Shaktipat, you sometimes feel very negative or very angry. You shouldn’t be afraid when you get to such a state; it happens because the Shakti is expelling all the karmas of countless lives. Sometimes when a person receives Shaktipat he begins either to laugh for hours on end with joy or to cry for hours with great grief.”
-Swami Muktananda, Kundalini, pg 29

“Now, this self is a dike, a divider, to keep these worlds from colliding with each other… Upon passing across this dike, therefore, a blind man turns out not to be blind, a wounded man turns out not to be wounded, and a sick man turns out not to be sick. Upon crossing this dike, therefore, one even passes from night into day, for, indeed, this world of Brahman is lit up once and for all.”
-Chandogya Upanishad, 8.4.1

“Put away other words, for this is the dike to the immortal. Where the veins come together like spokes, in it is that one, taking birth in many ways.”
-Mundaka Upanishad 2.1.5

“He has these veins called Hita. They are as fine as a hair split a thousandfold and are filled with white, blue, orange, green, and red fluid.”

-Brhadaranyaka Upanishad, 4.2.3

“When one sees him –both the high and the low; the knot of one’s heart is cut, all doubts are dispelled; and his works come to an end. In that high golden container is brahman, stainless and partless, the brilliant light of lights! This is what they know, those who know the self. There the sun does not shine nor the moon and the stars; there lightning does not shine, of the common fire need we speak! Him alone, as he shines, do all things reflect; this whole world radiates with his light.”
-Mundaka Upanishad

“My heart was cloven and there appeared a flower, and grace sprang up, and fruit from the Lord, For the highest one split me with his holy spirit, exposed my love for him and filled me with his love. His splitting of my heart was my salvation and I followed the way of his peace, the way of truth.”
-Odes of Solomon, The Other Bible

“My heart was raised and magnified in the love of the highest one that I might celebrate his name.”
–Odes of Solomon, The Other Bible

“The illuminator of our hearts
is coming,
the lamp of Light
brightening even those in darkness.
The true upraiser of the dead
is coming
to heal us.” -Prayer to Mani, Diverse Manichaean Documents, The Other Bible

“If someone says to you, ‘In the fortified city of the imperishable, our body, there is a lotus and in this lotus a tiny space: what does it contain that one should desire to know?’ You must reply: ‘As vast as this space without is the tiny space within your heart: heaven and earth are found in it, fire and air, sun and moon, lightning and the constellations, whatever belongs to you here below and all that doesn’t, all this is gathered in that tiny space within the heart.”
-Chandogya Upanishad 8.1.2-3

Reborn as True Self

“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”-Jesus

“In each human being dwells an infinite power, the root of the universe. That infinite power exists in two modes: one actual, the other potential. This infinite power exists in a latent condition in everyone.”
-Elaine Pagals, The Gnostic Gospels

“Every midwife knows that not until a mother’s womb softens from the pain of labor will a way unfold and the infant find that opening to be born. Oh friend! There is a treasure in your heart, it is heavy with child. Listen. All the awakened ones, like trusted midwives, are saying, welcome this pain, it opens the dark passage of Grace.”

“That which you have will save you if you bring it forth from yourselves.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“A person the size of a thumb in the body (atman) always resides within the hearts of men. One should draw him out of the body with determination, like a reed from the grass sheath. One should know him as immortal and bright”
-The Upanishads

“This is a light abounding in full gladness, like coming upon a light in thick darkness, like receiving treasury in poverty. So easy, so free are you, that the weight of the world and the aggravations of the mind are burdens no longer; your existence is delivered from all limitations. You have become open, light and transparent. You gain an illuminating insight into the deepest nature of things, which appear to you as so many gossamer patterns having no graspable reality! Here is the original face of your being. Here is the straight passage, open and unobstructed. Here is where you surrender all. This is where you gain peace, ease, non-doing and inexpressible delight. All sutras and scriptures are nothing more than communications of this fact. All the sages, ancient and modern, have exhausted their ingenuity and imaginations to no other purpose than to point the way to this!”
-Shih Shuan

The True Self is Light

“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men.” –Jesus, Matthew

“Seek to become a Light in the world. Make of thyself a vessel for Light, a focus for the sun of this space. Lift thine eyes to the cosmos, lift thine eyes to the light... Create the high vibration that will make thee One with the whole. Blend all of thyself with the cosmos. Grow into one with the light... Look all around thee, man. See thine own light reflected. Aye, even in the darkness around thee, thine own light pours forth through the veil.”
-The Emerald Tablets of Thoth

“Realize that heaven is a perfect state of consciousness, a perfect world here and now, and all we need to do is accept it. It is here all about us, waiting for us to open the inner eye. Through that eye our bodies shall be made light, the light which is neither of the sun or the moon but of the Father; and the Father is right here in the very inner most part of our being,”
-Spalding, L.T.M.F.E.

“Whoever has ears, let him hear. There is light within man of light, and he lights up the whole world. If he (or: it) does not shine, he is darkness.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Those who manifest the wisdom of light will continue to evolve into the thrones and dominions of light and no longer wander in the profane consciousness of the earth… Those who see the ‘House of Light’ and dance in the ‘light’ bring the light into their body-cosmos… There is no true liberation without love.”
-Keys of Enoch

“You can always rejoice in the myriad radiations of the living light.” –Keys of Enoch

Blake and Whitman

“To see the World in a Grain of Sand,
And Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And Eternity in an hour.”
-William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

“The desire of Man being Infinite the possession is Infinite & himself Infinite. He who sees the Infinite in all things sees God. He who sees the Ratio only sees himself only. Therefore God becomes as we are, that we may be as he is.”
-William Blake, There is No Natural Religion

“I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume, for every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.”
-Walt Whitman, Leaves of a Grass

Sought throu nature to find this Tree

There grows one in the Human Brain.” –William Blake, The Human Abstract

-Walt Whitman

“If the doors to perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.”–William Blake

Kundalini Symbology

“The serpent is a symbol found everywhere in the Greek archaic religious record as well as the Egyptian. The depiction of the snake refers to ‘earth energy,’ or, in the words of John Chang, ‘yin power’ (yin chi rising from the earth). Certain researchers have purposed the theory that the chakras of Eastern mysticism are no more than a network of ‘standing waves’ in the field of yin energy that surrounds and pervades us... All the images [of snake coiling up] refer to the ascension of earth energy.”-Kosta Danaos, The Magus of Java

“Thoth, the Atlantian who later returned as Hermes and was the father of alchemy, used the symbology of two snakes intertwining around a sword to represent healing... Complete understanding and acceptance of the male and female within each organism creates a melding of the two into one, thereby producing divine energy. This medicine [snake] teaches you on a personal level that you are a universal being. Through accepting all aspects of your life, you can bring about the transmutation of the fire medicine. This fire energy, when functioning on the material plane, creates passion, desire, procreation, and physical vitality. On the emotional plane, it becomes ambition, creation, resolution, and dreams. On the mental plane it becomes intellect, power, charisma, and leadership. When this snake energy reaches the spiritual plane, it becomes wisdom, understanding, wholeness, and connection to the Great Spirit.” - Jamie Sams and David Carson, Medicine Cards

-Tao-te Ching, Wilheim

“Love your brother like your soul, guard him like the pupil of your eye… You see the mote in your brother’s eye, but you do not see the beam in your own eye. When you cast the beam out of your own eye, then you will see clearly to cast the mote from your brother’s eye.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Therefore: by your own person judge the person of the other… How do I know the nature of the world? Just through this.”
-Tao-te Ching, Wilheim

"Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. ‘Teacher,’ he said, ‘what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ He said to him, ‘What is written in the law? What do you read there?' He answered, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.’ And he said to him, ‘You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.’

-Isaiah 58, Jewish Scripture


"Soon the child's clear eye is clouded over by ideas and opinions, preconceptions and abstractions. Simple free being becomes encrusted with the burdensome armor of the ego. Not until years later does an instinct come that a vital sense of mystery has been withdrawn. The sun glints through the pines and the heart is pierced in a moment of reality and strange pain, like a memory of paradise. After that day.... we become seekers.
-Peter Matthiessen

“If you put your soul against this oar with me, the power that made the universe will enter your sinew from a source not outside of your limbs, but from a holy realm that lives in us.” –Rumi

“When Jesus said, ‘I am the door,” he meant that the I am in every soul is the door through which the life, power, and substance of the great I am, which is God, comes forth into expression through the individual. This I am has but one mode of expression and that is through idea, thought, word, and act. This I am God Being, which is power, substance, intelligence, is given form by consciousness; and for this reason [Jesus] said, ‘According to your faith, be it unto you,’ and, ‘All things are possible to those who believe.’”

“It was while sojourning in northern Arabia that Jesus had access to the library that had been collected from India, Persia, and the Trans-Himalayan region. Here Jesus first contacted the secret teachings of the Brotherhood. These teachings only served to drive home more firmly the conviction already forming, that the true mystery of life was God expressed through the Christ in the individual… He saw that if man ever arose to that lofty power of that mighty Indwelling Presence; if a mighty Son of God, one in whom the divine Wisdom abode in fullest measure; one rich in the outpouring richness of all of God’s treasures, the fountain of the outpouring waters of life, the Lord, or law of compassion and wisdom; was actually to take flesh upon earth, he must come forth and proclaim these possessions.”

“But when the bridegroom leaves the bridal chamber, then let them pray and fast.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“The Spirit is a Unity, over which no one rules. It is the God of Truth, the Father of All, the Holy Spirit, the invisible one, the one who is over All, the one who exists in his imperishability, the one who exists in pure light into which no sight can look. One must not consider the Spirit as God or as a specific quantity, for it is more excellent than the gods. It is a Beginning that none precedes, for no one existed before it and it has no need for them. It does not need life, for it is eternal; it needs nothing, for it is not perfectible, since it has no deficiency which might be perfected, but is beyond all perfection. It is light. It is illimitable because no one is before it to give it limits; undifferentiated, because no one is before it to differentiate it; immeasurable, because no one has measured it as though existing before; invisible, because no one has seen it. It is the eternal which always exists, the indescribable because no one has apprehended it so as to describe it, the one whose name no one can tell because no one existed before it to name it. It is the immeasurable Light, the holy and pure purity, the indescribable, perfect and imperishable… It seeks only itself in the perfection of Light, and comprehends the pure Light. The immeasurable greatness, the eternal, the giver of eternity, the Light, the giver of Light, the life, the giver of life, the blessed one, the giver of blessedness, the knowledge, the giver of knowledge, the eternal good, the giver of good, the benefactor; that which is not of such a kind because it is such, but it gives qualities; the merciful mercy, the grace-giving grace, the immeasurable Light. What shall I say to you of It, the incomprehensible –the vision of the light –corresponding to what I shall be able to comprehend? … He told this to us, he who alone understands himself in his own light which surrounds him, he who is the fount of the water of life, the light full of purity.”
-The Secret Book of John, Gnostic Text, The Other Bible

“I was sent forth from the power, and I have come to those who reflect upon me, and I have been found among those who seek after me. Look upon me, you who reflect upon me, and you hearers, hear me. You who are waiting for me, take me to yourselves. And do not banish me from your sight… For I am the first and the last. I am the honored one and the scorned one. I am the whore and the holy one. I am the wife and the virgin. I am the mother and the daughter. I am the members of my mother. I am the barren one and many are her sons… For I am knowledge and ignorance. I am shame and boldness. I am shameless; I am ashamed. I am strength and I am fear. I am war and peace. Give heed to me. I am the one who is disgraced and the great one… I am… within. I am… of the natures. I am of the creation of the spirits. I am control and the uncontrollable. I am the union and dissolution. I am the abiding and the resolving… I am the hearing that is attainable to everything; I am the speech that cannot be grasped… For many are the pleasant forms which exist in numerous sins, and incontinences, and disgraceful passions, and fleeting pleasures, which men embrace until they become sober and go up to their resting place. And they will find me there, and they will live, and they will not die again.” -The Thunder, Perfect Mind. Gnostic, The Other Bible

“God is in everything I see. God is in everything I see because God is in my mind. I have invented the world I see. My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy. My holiness envelops everything I see. There is nothing my holiness cannot do. My holiness is my salvation. I am the light of the world. Let me be still and listen to the truth. I am one Self, united with my Creator. Salvation comes from my one Self. I will step back and let Him lead the way. I walk with God in perfect holiness. I am in need of nothing but the truth. My Self is the ruler of the universe. Let every voice but God’s be still in me. All that I give is given to myself. No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth. Today I learn to give as I receive. And this you give today: See no one as a body. Greet him as the Son of God he is, acknowledging that he is one with you in holiness. Thus do you learn to give as you receive. And thus Christ’s vision looks on you as well. This lesson is not difficult to learn, if you remember in your brother you but see yourself. If he be lost in sin, so must you be; if you see light in him, your sins have been forgiven by yourself…. I give the miracles I have received. Take from His storehouse, that its treasures may increase.”
-Course of Miracles, V2, Workbook for students.

“The return of the magical can only happen with the return of innocence…. The wizard watches the world come and go, but his soul dwells in the realms of light…. The scenery changes, the seer remains the same…. Who am I? is the only question worth asking and the only one never answered. It is your destiny to play an infinity of roles, but these roles are not yourself. A wizard does not believe himself to be a local event dreaming of a larger world. A wizard is a world dreaming of local events…. When the doors of perception are cleansed, you will begin to see the unseen world –the wizard’s world…. The seat of power is the inner self. You are the world. When you transform yourself, the world you live in will also be transformed…. The uncertainty you feel inside is the doorway to wisdom…. The reality you experience is a mirror image of your expectations. Wizards do not grieve over loss, because the only thing that can be lost is the unreal. Lose everything and the real will still remain. To the extent you know love, you become love. Love is more than an emotion. It is a force of nature and therefore must contain truth. When you say the word love, you may catch the feeling, but the essence cannot be spoken. …there are infinite realms of consciousness…. Seekers are never lost, because spirit is always beckoning to them. Seekers are offered clues all the time from the world of spirit. Ordinary people call these coincidences. To a wizard there are no coincidences. Every event exists to expose another layer of the soul. Spirit wants to meet you. To accept its invitation, you must be undefended. When you seek, begin in your heart. The cave of the heart is the home of truth. Every aspect of yourself is immortal.”
-Deepak Chopra, The Way of the Wizard

“It’s an emotional journey, physical will take care of itself. Make the best of wherever you are. I am reaching for the best feeling-thought. Don’t pay attention to what others say about it, as long as it lifts you. It’s an emotional journey. Reach for the best feeling-thought you have access to. You are extensions of source energy. When circuits are all open, you feel wonderful. You’re clear minded; you feel love. But the more the circuits are pinched off, the more that contradictory thoughts are introduced, then the less good you feel. Emotions are the allowance of source, or disallowance. It’s about the open valve or the closed valve. It’s about letting it in and emotions let you know how you are doing. When you ask it is always given. You are leading-edge co-creators. Whatever your attention is on, you become one with. Your vibration becomes the same as your thoughts. Wherever you are is where you are, so make the best of things. Be willing to make it incremental.”
-Abraham Hicks

“The message from the world of spirit can be stated with simplicity: Perfect love is all there is and perfect love must be experienced in the NOW. All else is fears complexity.”
-Emmanuel’s Book II

"Jesus said, 'Whoever has come to understand the world has found (only) a corpse, and whoever has found a corpse is superior to the world.' " -Gospel of Thomas

"It is impossible for a person to mount two horses and to stretch two bows. And it is impossible for a servant to serve two masters. Else he will honor the one and insult the other."
-Gospel of Thomas

"The Kingdom of the Father is like a certain man who wanted to kill a powerful man. In his own house he drew his sword and struck into the wall in order to find out whether his hand could carry through. Then he slew the powerful man." -Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

"This is not the mortal self, the self you see, that is able to do these things. It is a truer deeper self. It is what you know as God, God within me, God the Omnipotent One working through me, that does these things. Of myself, the mortal self, I can do nothing. It is only when I get rid of the outer entirely and let the actual, the I AM, speak and work and let the great Love of God come forth that I can do these things that you have seen. When you let the love of God pour through you to all things, nothing fears you and no harm can befall you." -Spalding, Life and Teaching of the Master of the Far East V.1

"D: Are there any barriers that keep us from going to a certain level? P: Our thoughts, our fears our beliefs and our intent. D: Would we be able to go to the level he is from? P: At this time we can do that with our consciousness, which always resides in this level, unbeknown to us, who are 99% asleep. There is an enormous part of us that always dwells in the realm of light and foreverness. It is our responsibility to bring this to the 'awake' state of our consciousness. D: I'm thinking that we are so concentrated on our physical bodies, that when we die, so to speak, and we leave the physical body, we would only go out so far and then return back to the physical body. P: that is absolutely a possibility. it depends on your focus. Your conscious thoughts are the power source that you and every other human possess. The thoughts that you consciously generate will be a major determining factor on where you go, and if and how soon you do return consciously in the physical form on this planet. D: You said we were 99% asleep? Do you mean all humans P: Of course there are humans who have been able to have the realization through their thought, their loving intent, their actual belief and faith in the everlasting love-light. There have been human beings on this planet who have definitely been able to transcend gross physical matter, and not 'die', as you are familiar with. They have been called 'ascended masters', which is a term of some humor, for it just meant they were able to transcend many of the sticky layers.... It would be allowing each molecule of the human body to, say, turn up the power Each molecule would become fully light. And by turning on the light, the vibration is sped up to such a degree that the body, as well as the infinite consciousness, transcends this plane. D: then the body disappears. P: That is correct.... So they actually have the capability to teletransport, like swirling glitter. Disassemble and reassemble according to their conscious intent. D: So it's like the entire body decomposes. I don't now if that would be the right word. Disappears. P: Yes, disappears is adequate. It would have to be a very controlled condition, and only in the sense that these vibrations could be raised to a level which would be beyond your physical sense of sight It has been done, however, not by people you would generally accept as normal. Some humans have realized that they, in fact, are part of the God force. Once they in their consciousness, become the light that they are they have the capability to disassemble their molecules.... D: What about the reported transfiguration of Jesus. Was that His actual physical body? P: The physical body was raised far beyond a level which would decay. To accelerate the natural decay process it was as if the molecules were simply separated through an advanced process of energy stimulation, such that the molecules themselves broke down. Which is the natural process of decay in speeded form. When Jesus appeared to people after His 'death' it was possible for Him to adjust His frequency of His spirit of soul to those who would witness him. He could adjust it so that only one person out of a crowd could see Him if necessary. And this is being done in many times in many different places. It was not unique to the Jesus experience.... The example we are describing is someone not of the 99% asleep. This would be a person who has the belief, the desire and the intent to do that. To transcend, taking their bodies with them. Other people also desire this transcendence, but do not believe that they can do this. Therefore they cannot, and their body must physically die. Your belief system is a shaft of steel. Without truly believing this is possible, it's not possible.... You must realize that those people who have consciously been able to -- let me use the term 'disassemble' -- consciously the physical body, are not in the 99% asleep state. If, in fact, you awaken to the knowledge and belief that you can transcend these levels, or layers of being, and have been able to achieve this accomplishment, then you have also awakened to the fact that you need not drudge on in the heavy and dense material plane.... But in fact it is the greatest physical learning we can possess. If, if it is accomplished by the belief of the heart. So it must go beyond mind. The mind is a tool of spirit.... D:So what should we do everyday? P: Consciously focus your thoughts on light. Not just without, but light that radiates from every cell of your living body. From the planet herself from each plant and animal, and from the air and water themselves. Think that every single thing you come in contact with or even think of, is in essence made of light. And the core of light the very bottom line, is love. And love is a force much misunderstood by humans who put it into a very tiny narrow little box.... The awakening is the purpose. The awakening of the fact that in essence we are light, we are love. Each cell of our bodies, each cell and molecule of everything. The power source that runs all life is light. So to awaken to that knowledge, and to desire to operate in that realm, and to believe that it is possible are all factors that will put you there.... If there were any learning that we could bring forth from this session to other people it would be the power of our beliefs.... Our job as beings who are trying to become enlightened, is to send out belief highways toward the light. beliefs are --it's so hard to articulate this -- very strong thoughts.... Once becoming intellectually aware of the possibility exists, the curious human wants to try. So they send out desire, intent, and the clincher: asking. "
-Dolores Cannon, The Convoluted Universe.

"It delights me to remind you of several things: you are eternal; your soul-Self has created this physical body; if you do not choose to remain enslaved by the illusion of time, you need never grow old at all. If you were to become convinced, without a shred of doubt, of what I have just told you, you would enter the realm of optional functioning of physicality. Yet you would not choose to remain physical forever. It is not necessary and eventually would become uninteresting. Nevertheless, you hold that power."
-Emmanuel's Book II

"All expectation must be put aside until the recognition that God is everything is accepted by the inner being. Then the voice of God is heard everywhere. When you learn to love, to trust, to believe in yourself, you know God as the center of who you are. ...you will find that you and God are one. You will know God's will then for it will be your own."
-Emmanuel's Book II

"The secret lies in getting the at-one-ment; getting the consciousness of it and then holding firmly and never deviating, though all earth shall oppose.'Of myself I can do nothing,' said Jesus, 'the Father that dwells in me, He does the work.' Have faith in God. Have faith and doubt not. Have faith and fear not. Now remember there is no limit to God's power. 'All things are possible.'... Fill the seemingly blank spaces about you with the thought of God, Infinite Good. Then remember the word God is a seed. It must grow."
-Spalding, Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East, V.II pg. 25

"If the vibrational rate of the planet changes, by people becoming kinder, or people recognizing the God in everyone, the vibrational rate of the planet will change. And by bringing up that level, the planet Earth will be healed to some extent.... Don't create the separation. We are all one together. The planet, us, the bird, the dog, there's no separation between anything. Just the difference in manifestation of form. And if people realize that, then we would have Heaven on the planet." -Dolores Cannon, The Convoluted Universe

"When you give, you begin to live. You get the world." -Dave Matthew's Band

"Thought is a tool to get you to the gate. Then you must leave your tools behind."
-Emmanuel's Book

"Love is all that exists. Love is the universal communication. It is the energy that has created the universe and is keeping it going. God is love."
-Emmanuel's Book

"The natural state of the heart is open.... How do I touch God within? How do I hear the spirits that are with me? How do I learn to love? How do I grow to become who I am? By ceasing to be who you are not. There is not a heart that exists in your human world that, if it were assured of safety, would not open instantly. It is all an issue of fear."
-Emmanuel's Book

"God is your divine ideal, the focal point upon which every thought and act is centered. It is in this way you bring forth the divine spiritual man, the Christ of God, the word made flesh... No one ever accomplished anything unless, with all his will in complete focus, he held his objective (God) directly before the pure mirror of his thought force." -Spalding, Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East, V.3

"It is when one can stand steadfastly and unwaveringly with his eyes fixed directly on God, knowing and seeing no other, that he can accomplish what you now see. Our thought is, 'I stand steadfastly with my eyes fixed on You, O Father; knowing naught but you, Father; and I see naught but God in all things. I stand firmly on the Holy Mount, knowing naught but Your Love, Life, and Wisdom. Your Divine Spirit pervades me always. It surrounds me and abounds within and without me always. I know, Father, that this is not for me alone, but it if for all Thy children." -Spalding, V.2

"See the Self in all." -Kena Upanishad, Easwaran

"As the innermost Self of all, he dwells within the cavern of the heart.... The Lord of Love is the one Self of all... Realize the Self hidden in the heart, and cut asunder the knot of ignorance here and now. Bright but hidden, the Self dwells in the heart... he is the source of love and may be known through love but not through thought. he is the goal of life. Attain this goal!... Realize him as the One behind the many and stop all vain talk... The Self reveals Himself to the one who longs for the Self." -Mundaka Upanishad, Easwaran

"Human bodies don't need nearly as much rest as you think they do. What they need is release. What they need is permission to express. What they need is their free-flowing passion." -Emmanuel's Book

"Let us, then, relinquish memory and allow experiance to flow. There is nothing to cling to. There is no necessity to remember anything, but only to be and that requires absolute faith, for in being-ness nothing is in control. There is only Is-ness, which is the absolute safety of God." -Emmanuel's Book, Epilogue

" 'Not my will, but Thine, O God, be done.' None can rise above mortal thoughts without doing the will of God whether he does it consciously or unconsciously." - Spalding, Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East.

"...home is here. It is the Divine Omnipresence in which we live, move, and have our being. We breathe it with every breath. We live it with every heart beat." -Spalding, Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East
