Quietly Comes the Buddha: Awakening Your Inner Buddha Nature
(Elizabeth Clare Prophet)
"The possibilities of human nature have customarily been sold short. Since this inner nature is good or neutral rather than bad, it is best to bring it out and to encourage it rather than to supress it. If it is permitted to guide our life, we grow healthy, fruitful and happy……even though denied, it persists underground forever pressing for actualization."

Karma, The Universal Law of Harmony
(Virginia Hanson and Rosemarie Stewart, editors)
"When you are fully gentle, without arrogance and without aggression, you see the brilliance of the universe. You develop a true perception of the universe."
"You may fall to the lowest depths, heaven forbid, but no matter how low you have fallen, it is still inappropriate to give up hope. The ability to return to God surpasses everything, and so there is no room for despair. Even sins can be transformed into virtue; even your failings and shortcomings can be brought back to God."
God Is A Verb, Kabbalah and the Practice of Mystical Judaism
(Rabbi David A. Cooper)

This is the process you have called evolution."
