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 "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."

2 "The divinity lies in your breast, the source of all strength and grandeur; and the more you appeal to it the more you exercise it."

3 "There is an unborn Christ in the soul of every one of us, the Christos, the Prince of Peace, the Prince of Love."

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

5 "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."

6 "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."

7 "The merest cognizance of spiritual and natural law should tell us that everything that happens in the great and in the small – because the small is included in the great – happens according to divine law."

8 "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."

9 "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."

10 "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."

11 "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."

12 "We are children of the infinite, of the divine."

13 "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!"

14 "There is in every human breast an undying font not only of inspiration, but likewise of growth, of hope, of wisdom, and of love. So that the world today, although apparently in a parlous condition, in a desperate state, still contains in it men and women enough to carry the evolutionary wave of progress over its present turmoil and strife; for the majority of mankind are essentially right in their instincts, especially the higher instincts."

15 "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."

16 "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."

17 "We may say with great reverence, yet with all truth, that back of all our labor however imperfectly we human beings may be doing, back of it as its origin and inspiration is this grand divinity."

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

19 "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."

20 "The divine womb of being out of which we came in the dawn of time, is still our Mother."

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

22 "All exists in an eternal Now."

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

24 "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."

25 "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."
