"The myths and stories that have come down to us are not dogma to be taken literally….they are poetry, not theology – meant, in Joseph Campbell's words, 'to touch and exhilarate centers of life beyond the reach of vocabularies of reason and coercion.'"
"Everything is connected to everything else." Barry Commoner, 'The Closing Circle'
"The center of the circle is the point of transformation. It corresponds to pure essence, to timelessness, to transparent light."
"I am Goddess. You are God, Goddess. All that lives and breathes, loves, sings in the unending harmony of being is divine."
"The Goddess is manifest in the physical world, and the more we understand its workings, the better we know Her."
"Wake up! You are it. You are a part of the circle of the Wise. There is no mystery that has not already been revealed to you. There is no power you do not already have. You share in all the love that is."
"Life and the world are not separate from Godhead; they are immanent divinity."
"Nature knows best….It is through study and observation of nature, of the visible, physical reality, that we can learn to understand the workings of the underlying reality."
"All things are interdependent and interrelated and therefore mutually responsible. An act that harms anyone harms us all."
"Justice is an inner sense that each act brings about consequences that must be faced responsibly."
"The laws of ecology are the laws of energy. Everything is interconnected; every action, every movement of forces, changes the universe."
"She [Goddess] is the ship, on which we sail the waters of the deep self, exploring the uncharted seas within. She is the door, through which we pass into the future. She is the cauldron, in which we who have been wrenched apart simmer until we again become whole."
"All began in love; all seeks to return to love. Love is the law, the teacher of wisdom, and the great revealer of mysteries."
"We are fish caught in a magic net – imagenetic – because our genes remember, our cells remember, the source, the origin, the beginning – imagenesis – creation out of image – creation of the image – from the image all is born – all is magic – imagnosis – this, through what we imagine, we know."
"God is within and without. Like the Goddess, He in invoked in many ways: singing, chanting, drumming, dancing, a whispered poem, a wild shout. However we call Him, He awakens within us."
"The Goddess has infinite aspects and thousands of names – She is the reality behind many metaphors. She IS reality, the manifest deity, omnipresent in all of life, in each of us."
"The universe is a fluid, ever-changing energy pattern, not a collection of fixed and separate things. What affects one thing affects, in some way, all things: All is interwoven into the continuous fabric of being."
"The secret of immortality lies in seeing death as an integral part of the cycle of life. Nothing is ever lost from the universe. Rebirth can be seen in life itself, where every ending brings a new beginning."
"We connect with Her [Goddess] through the moon, the stars, the ocean, the earth, through trees, animals, through other human beings, through ourselves. She is here. She is within us all. She is the full circle."
"Oneness is attained not through losing the self, but through realizing it fully. Honor the Goddess in yourself, celebrate your self, and you will see that Self is everywhere."
"The world of separate things is the reflection of the One; the One is the reflection of the myriad separate things of the world."
"Love is the glue that holds the world together."
"Love is not only an energizing force, but an individualizing force. It dissolves separation and yet creates individuality."
"We are each a part of the interpenetrating, interconnecting reality that is All."
"The All-That-Is-One is not now and never has been separate from this existing physical world. She is here, now, IS each of us in the eternal changing present; is no one but you, is nowhere but where you are – and yet is everyone."
