WHEE! We, wee All the Way Home
Matthew Fox
Fox brings together in this book the best mystical traditions of the past with the consciousness of modern society to create a spiritual vision for the future.

1 "God has shared the divinity with the littlest among us. That is spiritual democracy. And to internalize it (make it our own), to reflect on it, and to live with it, learning to breathe the truth of it – this will make new people of us. A people truly rooted in the spiritual attitude of sharing. Of democracy. Of becoming like God. Of appreciating the We."

2 "To know creation is to know the Creator."

3 "Prayer, psychologically speaking, is the release of God from our unconscious or our depths so as to permeate our consciousness."

4 "All persons are capable of profound participation with God."

5 "We ARE the sea; we ARE a part of the stars; we ARE of the earth."

6 "God is intimately in mountains and the sea, sunshine and the human personality, sexual activity and music, painting and good food. To know these things is to know their omnipresent Creator. The Giver is present in his gifts in an extraordinary way, an intimate way."

7 "Every human person is a bearer of ecstacy and, therefore, of God."

8 "Healing processes are built into all that lives, from plant to animal to man and woman."

9 "God, in her care and compassion, handles humankind with the touch of a caring parent."

10 "God thinks wholly, God thinks unity, not division, for all – not just a piece – of creation is present to the Creator. And present NOW."

11 "God is everybody's experience."

12 "God is, simply, everywhere….God is truly Emmanuel, God-with-us."

13 "The Creator remembers her creation – remembers as a constant participant in it. The Creator cherishes creation. As vivifier and breather and sustainer and beauty-maker – that is, as a lover remembers her beloved."

14 "The trail to God is also a journey with God."

15 "God is present in every flower, every person, every blade of grass and every note in a song – to recover the certitude of this is to experience God."

16 "An overflow – an extreme case of love – seems the most real explanation for there being creation at all."

17 "True morality is concerned with the 'weightier things of the law – justice, integrity and mercy.' True morality is about justice, which implies the distribution of creation's pleasures."

18 "The healthy soul, whether a man's, a woman's, or a culture's, is equally male and female, as Jung insisted: the Yin and the Yang; the animus and the anima; the male and the female; the sun and the moon – these elements of our psyches are meant to work together within each of us, not at odds."
