A Quote by Hans Børli on light, mind, and stars

Your humble light
the fire of your mind
blinds you:
If you walk
with a lantern in the dark
you won't see the stars.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, sacred, divine, purity, change, growth, spirituality, evil, mind, and love

In England, when people bow before the queen, they do so out of respect, but it does not imply any repentance.  But when we bow before Christ, it means that we are ready to empty ourselves from an evil mind, from any evil thought or act, or any evil thing in our lives.

Bishop Joseph

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on mind, analysis, methods, systems, change, and free

So if you see the truth that analysis is not the way for a mind to be completely free of its conditioning, then you will drop completely the analytical process.  If you see the danger of analysis as you see the danger of a serpent, actually see the danger of it, then you will never touch it.  Then the mind is free from the idea of analysis; therefore, it has already a different quality. It is capable then of looking in another direction. The old direction, the old tradition, the methods, the systems, what the gurus offer, what all the books offer is the gradual process, which is a form of analysis.  When you see the truth of it, you are completely out of it. Therefore your mind has become much sharper, much clearer.

J. Krishnamurti (1895 - 1986)

A Quote by Einar Skjæraasen on dream, light, mind, spring, and winter

Over lowland, over snow and tundra
span arches, raised by the rising sun.
See: the light is winning!
And the stream is streaming
towards open minds
and towards seeds dreaming
of growth.

A Quote by Olav Aukrust on memory, mind, and nature

Softer than cotton-grass swaying in the wind
deep in the mountain clearing,
are the memories that drift through a man's own mind
a pale, wind-swept evening.

A Quote by Michelle Skye on brigid, candlemas, fire, goddess, healing, imbolc, imbolg, inspiration, light, mind, soul, transformation, and quickening

Brigid has been known by many names: Brigit, Brig, Bride, Brigantia, Saint Brigid, and Mary of the Gael.  But no name encapsulates her personality as well as the term Breo Saighead (or Breo Aigit), meaning "fiery arrow or power."  Although this term was thought to be the root source of Brigid's name (as stated in the ninth-century book Cormac' Glossary), modern scholars have proven this early etymology to be based on folk legends and rumors rather than on scholarly sources.  Yet the term Breo Saighead will not go away.  It remains with this powerful triple goddess of the fire, as she inspires, transforms, and heals.  Brigid is the force behind grand ideas and simple comforts.  She is direct, quick, enlightening, and enlivening.  She is the shaft of lightning or the glowing candle that illuminates our world.  Fast, furious, bold, and strong, she arrives quickly and departs just as fast, leaving behind a brighter mind or soul or heart.  Brigid's gifts lie not in what she brings to you, but rather in casting light on what you can bring to the world.

A Quote by Saint Maximos the Confessor on god, christianity, nature, reality, passion, pain, mind, compassion, and truth

In the beginning, passion and pain were not created together with the body; nor forgetfulness and ignorance together with the soul; nor the ever-changing impressions in the shape of events with the mind.  All these things were brought about in man by his disobedience.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, art, literature, spirit, personality, thinking, mind, intellect, life, and psyche

How infinitely happier and more grateful is the whole personality or spirit when it finds something nourishing in art or writing or thinking, than the mere mind or intellect is:  the kinship you celebrate in these personalities is your own dismembered Orpheus stumbling across another fine organ to rejoin to itself.  I put it this way:  aristic psyche loves itself enough to chasten itself, to put itself through boot camp for the sake of being competent for life, alive to life.
