Angels and Mortals, Their Co-Creative Power
Maria Parisen, compiler

1 "Freedom and love are specifically the mission of the human race." James H. Hindes, contemporary American author

2 "Creative spiritual impulses constantly flow like music into the world. At times harmonious, at other times dissonant, spiritual forces 'sound forth' into human lives, giving new impulses and shaping reality….This 'heavenly music' sets the world and human souls vibrating with inner movements, which are experienced as insights, soul-moods, impulses of will and inspirations." James H. Hindes, contemporary American philosopher and author

3 "Humans are…beings who serve as a focus for the outworking of patterns of meaning as well as content. Sacred psychology calls for renewing our commitment to a science of the soul, in which imagining is primary."

4 "The imprint of the eternal is everywhere. We have only to vision a little more deeply to see it."

5 "The religious spirit celebrates unity in diversity and the infinite as inseparable from finite things. It mandates integrity of relationship from deep within the human psyche, ordering an unfoldment of powers which makes possible communion and cooperation."

6 "We must explore more fully the subtleties of relationship, for even casual encounters are significant. In a living Cosmos, communion is sacred dialogue. Every meeting, even with what appears inert, is with a living presence. Through the soul of things, we envision and are beheld by divine Being." Maria Parisen, American nurse and Therapeutic Touch practitioner

7 "Depth psychologists say that imagining may be a primary means of perception and the creative agency of the soul. Imagination brings together spirit and matter in new wholes which are expressed in art, poetry, religion and science. It is a valid means of visioning the inner life of things."

8 "The genius of the myth-makers of history has been that they choose the forms of expression consistent with their own inner leading….Myths are the products of creative imagination, which the dictionary defines as 'the power to represent the real more fully and truly than it appears to the senses and in its ideal and universal character.'"

9 "Though religion, psychology, philosophy, science and the arts all have varied languages, they all reveal related aspects of one life."

10 "There is in every human being an unconscious inlet to the highest creative energies of the spirit." Michael Grosso, 'The Cult of the Guardian Angel'

11 "We must not only bring the earth's life into balance again but bring the human family together."

12 "The spiritual origin of all matter is hinted at in the theories of modern physics when the subatomic constituents of matter are described as nothing more than mathematical structures, essentially mental." James H. Hindes, contemporary American philosopher and author

13 "All things and events in the world are established and maintained in Being by divine influx." Roberts Avens, depth psychologist

14 "Somewhere in the depths of our beings there is direct and individual touch with the angel which is also ourselves, and which we can call upon in various ways." Laurence J. Bendit, 'The Incarnation of the Angels'

15 "Esoteric studies reveal Cosmos as a vast hierarchy of lives evolving through Law."

16 "One whole governs the moving and the stable, that which walks and flies, this variegated creation." Rigveda III.54.8

17 "Humanity possesses within itself a spark of the highest spiritual consciousness." Stephan A. Hoeller, 'Angels Holy and Unholy'

18 "Men have traversed the whole Earth, have penetrated the wilds, scaled the peaks and conquered the polar wastes. Let them now seek within the form, scale the height of their own consciousness, penetrate its depths, in search of that inner Power and Life by which alone they may become strong in will and spiritually enriched." Geoffrey Hodson, 'The Greater Gods'

19 "Ultimately, to be sure, there is only one Monad (a term from Greek that means 'unity'). But as that Monad is reflected in evolved matter and the developed kingdoms of life, it is continually refracted, so that it seems to itself to become increasingly limited and fragmented. Thus the One apparently divides into the many." John Algeo, 'Dark Angels'

20 "Our future is to reestablish connections, to forge the links that will bind us back to the Unity, to become One – consciously, deliberately, of our own free will….We are to merge without losing our identities, to recreate the Unity, but then a Unity that knows itself and has chosen its state." John Algeo, 'Dark Angels'

21 "Individuals have personal responsibility to choose in freedom what seems right for them." James H. Hindes, 'The Hierarchies'

22 "All beings and all things are filled with the indwelling Life or Fire of God." Geoffrey Hodson, 'The Greater Gods'

23 "The Wisdom Tradition holds that there is but one inexhaustible source of reality from which all things come and apart from which nothing is." John Algeo, 'Dark Angels'

24 "An Orphic teaching runs, 'One is the Self Begotten, and all things were derived from this same one.' The Egyptians called God 'Ua Neter', the One God." C. R. F. Seymour, contemporary esotericist

25 "Good will is the harmony of the cosmos made audible in human consciousness. It is that good will which is the true end and meaning of every human life." Jay G. Williams, Ph.D., Chair of the Dept. of Religion at Hamilton College, Clinton, N. Y.
