A Quote by Susan Griffin on sex, touch, and communion

To make love is to become like this infant again.  We grope with our mouths toward the body of another being, whom we trust, who takes us in her arms.  We rock together with this loved one.  We move beyond speech.  Our bodies move past all the controls we have learned.  We cry out in ecstasy, in feeling.  We are back in a natural world before culture tried to erase our experience of nature.  In this world, to touch another is to express love; there is no idea apart from feeling, and no feeling which does not ring through our bodies and our souls at once.

A Quote by Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami on purified, integrated, mind, perfected, understanding, communion, companion, soul, light, and radiance

The purified, integrated mind, so perfected in its own understanding, lives in close communion with the soul radiance so that light becomes the constant companion of the mind.

A Quote by Sherman Alexie on easter, love, communion, and prayer

We are taught to take the bread
into our bodies
as proof of Jesus's body...

Suddenly, we are wed
and I am just as surprised as you
that marriage has become our bread...

Look. I don't know what
would help me believe
that we have become sacred...

If that was Easter
then the church was full
as we stood against the wall

praying for an empty pew.
If that was Easter
then I rose that morning

in love with you
though I rise every morning
from the water, more or less

in love with you.
If that was Easter
then you were asked

to be the Eucharistic minister.
If that was Easter
then you surprised me

by placing salmon on my tongue.
Then I surprised you
by swallowing it whole.

Amen, amen, amen.

Sherman Alexie

A Quote by Kaya McLaren on secrets, true self, communion, friendship, miracles, revelation, acceptance, listening, kaya mclaren, and church of the dog

Maybe people share their secret selves with me because they sense it won't make me feel uncomfortable.  Quite the contrary.  I always feel like I've experienced a miracle when it happens.  I guess, because to me, to reveal one's true self, one's spirit self, is to reveal God.

A Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on simple pleasures, husbands, wives, spouses, eating, breakfast, simplicity, and communion

A simple enough pleasure, surely, to have breakfast alone with one's husband, but how seldom married people in the midst of life achieve it.

The Path to Union

By means of Invocation, the being awakens,
and awakening becomes fullness.

By means of balancing, fullness becomes
internal wholeness.

By virtue of exteriorized attention, internal
wholeness becomes Communion.

By virtue of self-forgetfulness, Communion
becomes Union.

A Quote by Sharon McErlane on sacred, earth, living, planet, care, and communion

Call forth the sacredness of the earth now, the holiness of the living, breathing planet and breathe with the earth, blessing and being blessed as the light of the earth flows to you and as the light of your own heart flows to the beloved earth. There is a partnership, a communion between you and the land, between the land and you. This runs deep beneath the streets, deep beneath the buildings, deep throughout and beneath the seas. The earth is sacred. The earth is our mother; we must take care of her.

A Quote by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin on communion, agency, bodhisattva friendship, bodhisangha, evolutionary longing, and evolution of consciousness

There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881 - 1955)

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on happiness, memory, communion, soul, and silence

Happy is the man who knows or even the man who remembers those silent vigils where silence itself was the sign of the communion of souls!
