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 past, the present, and the future are but one eternal NOW in the ever present."

2 "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."

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

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

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

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 "We are all sparks of the divine heart."

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

9 "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!"

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

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

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

13 "All exists in an eternal Now."

14 "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."

15 "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."

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 "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."

18 "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."

19 "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."

20 "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."

21 "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."

22 "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."

23 "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."

24 "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."

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