A Quote by John Welwood on love, relationship, awakening, soul, soulwork, spirit, freedom, and integration

While our absolute nature, as pure being or open presence, is timeless and changeless....our soul evolves and deepens through cultivating and embodying the seed potentials -- for courage, strength, generosity, humor, tenderness, wisdom -- contained in this larger nature.  The essence of spiritual work is to realize and continually reorient ourselves toward our being, our absolute nature; and this is what leads to ultimate freedom.  Yet spiritual realizations often remain compartmentalized, apart from everyday life, or become used as a rationale for living in an impersonal or soulless way.  That is why, if we are to live our realizations and bring them into this world, we also need to work on the vessel of spirit -- our embodied humanity.  Soulwork is the forging of this vessel......If spiritual work brings freedom, soulwork brings integration.  Both are necessary for a complete human life.

A Quote by Sandra Day O'Connor on community, tapestry, and integration

We don't accomplish anything in the world alone...whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one's life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on spiritual, mental, physical, social, integral, integration, fire within, passion, and vision

Fulfilling the four needs [spiritual, mental, physical, social] in an integrated way is like combining elements in chemistry. When we reach a "critical mass" of integration, we experience spontaneous combustion--an explosion of inner synergy that ignites the fire within and gives vision, passion, and a spirit of adventure to life.

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by Ken Wilber on science, religion, sense, soul, integration, and integral

On the plane, back to Boulder, back to a life that seems somehow far away from itself.

Is this a topic whose time has truly come? The integration of science and religion? Or have I just written a clever book that temporarily impressed a few people and will otherwise go as quickly as it came?
