A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on spirit, perception, intent, and freedom

The third point of reference is freedom of perception; it is intent; it is spirit; the somersault of thought into the miraculous; the act of reaching beyond our boundaries and touching the inconceivable.

A Quote by jack Kornfield on jack kornfield, awakening, liberation, clinging, aversion, craving, spirit, and enlightenment

In spiritual life there is no room for compromise. Awakening is not negotiable; we cannot bargain to hold on to things that please us while relinquishing things that do not matter to us. A lukewarm yearning for awakening is not enough to sustain us through the difficulties involved in letting go. It is important to understand that anything that can be lost was never truly ours, anything that we deeply cling to only imprisons us.

A Quote by Carl Orff on elemental music, elemental, music, and spirit

Elemental music is never just music. Its bound up with movement, dance and speech, and so it is a form of music in which one must participate, in which one is invlolved not as a listener bust as a co-performer. It is pre-rational, has no over-all form, no architectonics, involves no pre-set sequences, ostinati or minor rondo-forms. Elemental music is earthy, natural, physical, capable of being learnt and experienced by anybody, childsplay......Elemental Music, word and movement, play, everything that awakens and develops powers of the soul build up the humus of the soul, the humus without which we face spiritual soil erosion. When does soil erosion arise in nature? When the land is cultivated in an unbalanced way, when the natural hydrological cycle is disturbed by over-cultivation, when the forest andn the hedge are sacrificed on utilitarian grounds to the drawing board mentality - in short,  when the balance of nature is undermined by one-sided encroachment. And in the same way we face spiritual soil-erosion when man estranges himself from the elemental and loses his balance.

A Quote by Kala Ambrose on spirit, kala, and explore your spirit

“Spirit does not exist in just one location; rather it is all
encompassing, living within and amongst us in each moment, thought and
action. I believe that Spirit is raised to it's highest level, when
individuals gather with wisdom, compassion and a discerning desire to
provide service to humanity”.

A Quote by Baha'u'llah on straight path, god, beloved, and spirit

Peace be upon him who follows the Straight Path!

The true seeker hunts naught but the object of his quest, and the lover has no desire save union with his Beloved.

Nor shall the seeker reach his goal unless he sacrifice all things. That is, whatever he has seen, and heard, and understood (before), all must he set at naught, that he may enter the Realm of the Spirit, which is the City of God.

Verily we are from God, and to Him shall we return!

Baha'u'llah (1817 - 1892)
