saint

A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde on future, past, saint, and sinner

The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.

Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

A Quote by C. W. Leadbeater on avatars, religion, supermen, prophet, teacher, divine, life, buddha, rishi, saint, spirit, and theosophy

 The records of every great religion show the presence of such Supermen, so full of the Divine Life that again and again they have been taken as the very representatives of God Himself.

A Quote by Elysha on accountability, advaita, adyashanti, apocalypse, authenticity, awakening, awareness, beauty, behaviour, being, bible, biology, bliss, buddha, buddhism, catholic, cessation, changes, christ, christian, clarity, communication, concepts

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 Shams-ud-din Muhammad (Hafiz) on journey, love, and saint

What Happens

What happens when your soul
Begins to awaken
Your eyes
And your heart
And the cells of your body
To the great Journey of Love?

First there is wonderful laughter
And probably precious tears

And a hundred sweet promises
And those heroic vows
No one can ever keep.

But still God is delighted and amused
You once tried to be a saint.
 
What happens when your soul
Begins to awake in this world
 
To our deep need to love
And serve the Friend?
 
O the Beloved
Will send you
One of His wonderful, wild companions -

Like Hafiz.

A Quote by Orson Welles on polarity, pole, murderer, saint, good, bad, philistine, aesthete, truth, and contradiction

"For thirty years people have been asking me how I reconcile X with Y! The truthful answer is that I don't. Everything about me is a contradiction and so is everything about everybody else. We are made out of oppositions; we live between two poles. There is a philistine and an aesthete in all of us, and a murderer and a saint. You don't reconcile the poles. You just recognize them."

Orson Welles (1915 - 1985)
