A Quote by Ken Wilber on divine, emptiness, awareness, kosmos, god, and love

Indeed, indeed: let the self-contraction relax into the empty ground of its own awareness, and let it there quietly die. See the Kosmos arise in its place, dancing madly and divine, self-luminous and self-liberating, intoxicated by a Light that never dawns nor ceases.  See the worlds arise and fall, never caught in time or turmoil, transparent images, shimmering in the radiant Abyss. Watch the mountain walk on water, drink the Pacific in a single gulp, blink and a billion universes rise and fall, breathe out and create a Kosmos, breathe in and watch it dissolve. ....And this earth becomes a blessed being, and every I becomes a God, and every We becomes God's sincerest worship, and every It becomes God's most gracious temple......And I-I rise to taste the dawn, and find that love alone will shine today.  And the Shining says: to love it all, and love it madly, and always endlessly, and ever fiercely, to love without choice and thus enter the All, to love it mindlessly and thus be the All, embracing the only and radiant Divine: now as Emptiness, now as Form together and forever, the Godless search undone, and love alone will shine today.

A Quote by Rudolf John Gorsleben on runes, spirit, secret power, divine, and spiritual treasure

With the introduction of Runic knowledge the generation of our days can achieve the control of secret powers within the life of their soul and reach the Spring-Root, which is the Whole of the Runes, the All-Raune, which opens all spiritual treasures to us, if we are Children of the Sunday, Children of the Sun, Children ("Kinder") of the Ar (Eagle, Sun), announcers ("Künder") of the Ar, people knowledgeable ("Könner" in modern German) of the Ar, Ar-koner, persons knowledgeable in the Ar-Kana (Arkana = arcane wisdom) or if we strive to become all of the above. The Runes have their own lives, they are true magical signs, from which we can draw the Spirit to Advise and the Courage to Action.

A Quote by Daniel Odier on tantra and divine

No act loses us; no violence we’re subjected to destroys us; no debasement chases out the divine, and no one can take the divine from us. We can have access to it at any time by breathing the intimate perfume of the woman, the perfume of the world.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on divine, consciousness, and union

there are only two general stances you can have in relation to the Divine Ground:  since all things are one with Ground, you can either be aware of that oneness, or you can be unaware of that oneness.  That is, you can be conscious or unconscious of your union with the Divine Ground:  those are the only two choices you have.

A Quote by Sri Aurobindo on depression, illness, divine, aurobindo, and universal forces

All life is the play of universal forces. The individual gives a personal form to these universal forces. But he can choose whether he shall respond or not to the action of a particular force. Only most people do not really choose - they indulge the play of the forces. Your illness, depressions etc. are the repeated play of such forces. It is only when you can make oneself free of them that one can be the true person and have a true life - but one can be free only by living in the Divine.                                                                 (XXII p. 318)

A Quote by Morihei Ueshiba on divine


The divine is not something high above us. It is in heaven, it is in earth, it is inside us.
