All earthly delights are sweeter in expectation than in enjoyment; but all spiritual pleasures more in fruition than in expectation.
All spiritual disciplined are done with a view to still the mind. The perfectly still mind is universal spirit.
As I lived up to the highest light I had, higher and higher light came to me.
As long as I can remember I feel I have had this great creative and spiritual force within me that is greater than faith, greater than ambition, greater than confidence, greater than determination, greater than vision. It is all these combined. My brain becomes magnetized with this dominating force which I hold in my hand.
At the center of our being is a point of nothingness which is untouched by sin and by illusion, a point of pure truth, a point or spark which belongs entirely to God, which is never at our disposal, from which God disposes of our lives, which is inaccessible to the fantasies of our own mind or the brutalities of our own will.
Be free all worthy spirits, and stretch yourselves, for greatness and for height.
But the thing that I saw in your face no power can disinherit: No bomb that ever burst shatters the crystal spirit.
But those rare souls whose spirit gets magically into the hearts of men, leave behind them something more real and warmly personal than bodily presence, an ineffable and eternal thing. It is everlasting life touching us as something more than a vague, recondite concept. The sound of a great name dies like an echo; the splendor of fame fades into nothing; but the grace of a fine spirit pervades the places through which it has passed, like the haunting loveliness of mignonette.
Don't you believe that there is in man a deep so profound as to be hidden even to him in whom it is?
Every spirit makes its house, but as afterwards the house confines the spirit, you had better build well.
Ghost only exist for those who wish to see them.
He is not the same, nor is he another.
He that loseth wealth, loseth much; he that loseth friends, loseth more; but he that loseth his spirit loseth all.
He who doesn't have the spirit of his time, has all its misery.
He who interrupts the course of his spiritual exercises and prayer is like a man who allows a bird to escape from his hand; he can hardly catch it again.
He whom God has touched will always be a being apart: he is, whatever he may do, a stranger among men; he is marked by a sign.
His spiritual life has been exaggerated by a chronic attack of mental gallstones.
I firmly believe that all human beings have access to extraordinary energies and powers. Judging from accounts of mystical experience, heightened creativity, or exceptional performance by athletes and artists, we harbor a greater life than we know. There we go beyond those limited and limiting patterns of body, emotions, volition, and understanding that have been keeping us in dry-dock. Instead we become available to our capacity for a larger life in body, mind, and spirit. In this state we know great torrents of delight.
I'm aware that people I have loved and have died and are in the spirit world look after me.
If that vital spark that we find in a grain of wheat can pass unchanged through countless deaths and resurrections, will the spirit of man be unable to pass from this body to another?
