We are all beautiful parts of the great mystery

Great quotes from Jamie Sams in her most profound book "Dancing the Dream":

We are indeed beautiful parts of the Great Mystery's universe. When we see ourselves instead as being at the mercy of life's mysteries, we forget spiritual connections. In Native American traditions we honor the Spiritual Essence in all living things. We can see the Eternal Flame of Love that the Creator placed inside of every part of Creation: in rocks, plants, clouds, animals, and humans. We all carry that flame of light. When we deny our Spiritual Essences, we can become lost in Dark Nights of the Soul. Going through a Dark Night of the Soul, we can rediscover the inner light that was bestowed upon us, showing us how to find our way through any darkness on life's path.

We can choose to grow by adopting the view that all things work together for our personal and collective spiritual growth and evolution.

The gift of taking the spiritual warrior's journey is that we no longer fear death or separation or aloneness. We realize that nothing in the universe is outside of us.

Beyond the threshold of consciousness lies the infinite heart of the awaiting dream. To touch that sacred part of the mystery is to know the eternal aspects of BEING.

When we wake up, we may be stunned to realize that the rules governing our experience were made simply by the unseen forces of our personal opinions, judgment, feelings, ideas, and beliefs about life.

Nice reminder Fred, I think the following was from one of your sites also..............thanks for reminding us how it really works.

Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.

There is no world apart from your ideas because ideas leave not their source, and you maintain the world within your mind in thought.

I have indeed misunderstood the world, because I laid my sins on it and saw them looking back at me.

How deceived was I to think that what I feared was in the world, instead of in my mind.

Since we're sharing quotations here's two that are relevant to where I am lately-

from Alan Cohen,
"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power."

From Parker J. Palmer,
"Vocation does not come from willfulness. It comes from listening...Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you."
I'm listening.....Bright blessings, k

Love it, Kristyne! Here's one that is profound for me:

"The less I am attached to my version of reality, to my version of truth, the more easy it is for me to have compassion for others and to experience the world from their point of view."
