The Mystic Hours, A Daybook of Interspiritual Wisdom & Devotion
Wayne Teasdale
In this book, Teasdale provides a powerful look at spiritual wisdom, filled with quotations from all the great mystics and spiritual traditions.

1 "We should work together to set forth a path for humanity that includes everybody. That's the Divine Will for the human family, and the best in each religion acknowledges a similar vision."

2 "God's will embraces the totality of our development and faith. Trust and love are the keys that open us to the fullness of God's will for us."

3 "Failure is not an end but a beginning, because it reveals something that will assist us in moving forward."

4 "God is everywhere, in every being and in every situation, in the cosmos and the natural world, in our loved ones, our friends, just as he is in the stranger, our neighbors, our pets, and very pointedly in the suffering."

5 "People see God every day; they just don't recognize him." Pearl Bailey, American singer

10 "We are only really happy in the long run if we are committed to virtue, allowing our character to be schooled and formed by its precious wisdom. When we are truly in harmony with the Divine, others, nature, and ourselves, we are naturally virtuous and other will know it!"

11 "Before the Unconditioned, the conditioned dances: 'Thou and I are one!' this trumpet proclaims." Kabir

18 "We need to guard ourselves against fear's deadening effect. We must cast it aside…Let us see through our fears and relinquish them to what is possible beyond them. Allow your fear to be deflated by your hope and your unwillingness to be crippled by its hold."

19 "The whole purpose of religion is to facilitate love and compassion, patience, tolerance, humility, and forgiveness." The Dalai Lama

20 "The Divine Presence is everywhere; it only requires us to experience it."

21 "While we often think of eternity as infinite time, it also means timelessness, found only in the present or the now."

22 "The destiny of humanity…is a process of going back to the source and origin. And that source and origin is a supreme state of independence, a supreme state of consciousness, transcending all vexing limitations, infinite, boundless, eternal, beyond time and space." Swami Chidananda
