guidance

A Quote by Thomas Berry on gaia, earth, evolution, community, and guidance

The time has come to lower our voices, to cease imposing our mechanistic patterns on the biological processes of the earth, to resist the impulse to control, to command, to force, to oppress, and to begin quite humbly to follow the guidance of the larger community on which all life depends.

As you learn to leave alone the activity of unconsciously trying to be the mindbody that you think that you are - the mindbody that this "you" is currently flowing through - and you learn to move as this one that you truly are - this "you" of you; the very heart of existence - steadily, consciously and momentarily, the continuity of the ever deepening of this innermost as it keeps on entering its manifestation, through this mindbody that you find yourself flowing through, allows you to simply bubble in the sheer joy, pleasure, peace, delightfulness and stillness that this "you" of you is.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on guidance, silence, grace, and dreaming

Do not assume that divine guidance flows only when you are in need of help.  Guidance continues to flow whether or not you have problems.  It transcends problems, heartbreaks, and traumas, flowing through dreams and illuminations.... Whether guidance comes during times of tranquility or trauma, however, it is up to you to have the courage to acknowledge it....

A Quote by Caroline Myss on mystic, highest potential, transformation, epowerment, psyche, service, guidance, reflection, and community

We are living at a time of great transformation. The spiritual awakening that began in the 1960s needs to mature to its next level, which is a deepening into devotion to a mystical practice while remaining an effective force in the world. And by that I mean remaining in your skin, in your role as who you are. Mystics knew how to channel grace through prayer and they knew the power of that. They knew how to receive guidance through reflection and contemplation; they knew how to share the gift of illumination with each other. These are great gifts of life and profound grace that we are capable of providing for each other and the world. This is what it means to be a mystic without a monastery. You make a commitment to your own interior illumination and through that discover the “sacred” part of your “contract” and the true meaning of your highest potential.

A Quote by Leo Buscglia on love, faith, simplicity, guidance, religion, and spirituality

A short time ago, one of my neighbors told me of a little church near my home where beautiful, spiritual things occurred, and he wanted me to go and experience it. So I said I'd love to, and we went there...There was a lot of singing and a lot of moving around and dancing -- a real celebration. But the high point came when the minister stood up and said, "Friends, Brother Jonathan is going to give the sermon today, and his subject is going to be faith." Little Brother Jonathan stood up. He was about five-foot-four. He stood before everybody for a minute, folded his hands and said, "Faith, faith, faith, faith, faith, faith." Then he sat down! The minister stood up with a big smile on his face and said, "Thank you, Brother Jonathan, for that beautiful lecture on faith." I thought, someday I'm going to wise up and when I go to talk to people as I am tonight, about love, I'm going to fold my hands and I'm going to say, "Love, love, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, love, love," and then I'm gonna go home! It'll be the most beautiful evening we've had. But I'm not that secure yet, so I'm going to spend an hour telling you what this man said in a minute.

A Quote by Bill Schell on god, guidance, religion, thinking, imagination, and strength

Why in moments of crisis do we ask God for strength and help? As cognitive beings, why would we ask something that may well be a figment of our imaginations for guidance? Why not search inside ourselves for the power to overcome? After all, we are strong enough to cause most of the catastrophes we need to endure.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on guidance, fear, protection, right livelihood, passion, magic, reason, love, sailboats, airplanes, and ideas

Whatever enchants, also guides and protects.  Passionately obsessed by anything we love - sailboats, airplanes, ideas - an avalanche of magic flattens the way ahead, levels rules, reasons, dissents, bears us with it over chasms, fears, doubts.

Richard Bach (1936 -)

A Quote by Allan Combs on reality, synchronicity, fate, humility, control, intuition, guidance, rhythms, and trickster

 . . . The mind seeks knowledge as a handle on the cosmos from which it gains leverage for greater control and self-satisfaction, but synchronicity will not allow itself to be used so roughly. Like the flea (on the ‘iron bull’), we must eventually give up our effort to penetrate the impenetrable and surrender to a reality which we cannot master but to which we must submit. In the end, to be honest to our exploration or synchronicity we must ourselves surrender to it. This means to relax and allow the sometimes fickle tide of fate to take its natural course, to let it wash over and benignly carry us. We must sacrifice the urgent, petty agendas of the ego to a larger field or participation. We must learn humility and own humor, finding guidance in intuition and making logic a servant rather than master. Control is a personal experience, surrender is a transpersonal one. Through surrender we learn to move with the rhythms that flow through our existence and in so doing open ourselves to the wellsprings of life that are the gift of the divine Trickster.
