Wind of the Spirit
G. dePurucker
The author of this book claims that despite the agony and the sadness that we are feeling in our world today, there is a 'wind of the spirit' present within and among us, which is sweeping over the earth, rearranging, remaking, reshaping our world into an ever-clearer Image of the One Divinity which encompasses us all.

1 "The great sages and seers, the masters of wisdom and compassion, belong to no race, and especially to no creed. They are the children of the spirit, whose familiar thought is truth itself; and hence their sympathies are universal. They need no frontiers of race, of caste, of creed, of color. They are truth-seekers, truth-teachers….For truth has no age. It never was born, it never has not been. It is timeless because universal. Its appeal is to the hearts and minds of all."

2 "By true prayer we mean not only enlarging the personal consciousness towards becoming at one with the universal consciousness, but putting this experience into practice."

3 "Universal brotherhood means not merely a sentimental or political brotherhood; it means that we are all of one common cosmic or spiritual origin, and that what affects one affects all."

4 "At the core of every human being, indeed of every atom in the cosmos, is a living divinity." Grace F. Knoche, foreword

5 "It is our bounden duty to cultivate in our hearts the spirit of brotherly love towards all, however much they may differ from us in philosophical and religious or scientific opinions."

6 "The most needed thing for us today is to do our utmost to bring about a renascence, a rebirth, in the minds of all of the truth that this universe of ours is under the most strict cosmical moral law, in other words, of harmony; for what in the universe is harmony, in the human soul we call ethical instinct."

7 "Our divine origin makes us kin with every thing and every being that is, for not only are all mankind kin, but all beings and things that are are our other selves. All spring from the same universal ocean which holds us forever – the Mother Eternal, the Father-Mother."

8 "No matter what a man's belief may be, no matter what his brain-mind thinking or convictions may be, within, as the inmost part of himself, there burns forever that soul-light of union with the divine, which means union with all of the human race."

9 "This universe is one, broken into multitudes during manifestation; rooted in that One, living from it and by it. In it we live and we move and have all our being."

10 "There within indeed lie all truth, all harmony, all wisdom, all love, all peace. The inner god within each one of you as an individual is of the very heart of the heart of the universe, and concerning that heart of the universe, each one of you is It."

11 "What is this perfect love which casts out all fear? Why, it is simply living in that part of our own self which is universal. It is becoming allied with the divine. Therein lies perfect peace, perfect harmony."

12 "Universal brotherhood is inherent in any properly organized and enduring social structure."

13 "Fundamentally all is one, all beings are one."

14 "All are essentially unified in a divine oneness."

15 "We are all sparks of the divine heart."

16 "You cannot enchain the human soul. It will break free."

17 "Put your whole trust in the divine power behind nature and live in accordance therewith, and nature will look upon you as working with her….Those of you who have ears to hear, hear!"

18 "I am my brother – in our inmost WE ARE ONE."

19 "Life should be governed by the grand ethical instincts of the human soul, which are based on the orderliness of nature's own structure and processes."

20 "The greatest who have ever lived have taught us that the way to peace and happiness and growth and prosperity and riches and all good things of life is love and justice."

21 "Examine the teachings of all the great sages and seers who have appeared. You will find them essentially one, although expressed in different languages, expressed in different forms and formulations of thought appropriate to the respective ages in which each of the messengers appeared. Although clad in various garments, clothed in differing habiliments, the body of truth that they taught and teach is one."

22 "Ethics are no mere human convention; morals are rooted in the very fabric and stuff of universal nature herself."

23 "The universe and we are one. There is but one life."

24 "Universal brotherhood – not as merely vague sentimentalism, but as a recognition of human solidarity based on nature's own laws – is, after all, the keynote of any true civilization, and without it no civilization can endure."

25 "We human beings, as indeed all other things and entities everywhere, are parts of one vast cosmic whole, intimately united together, despite our failings and our stumblings, in the working out of our common destiny."
