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.
"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."
"Let not the setting sun reach the western horizon, nor close your eyes in sleep, before you have gone over all the events of the day just past, and have asked yourself: What have I done today that has been done amiss? What have I done today that has been done right? Have I injured anyone? Have I failed in my duty? Let not the setting sun reach the western rim of space, nor let your eyelids close in sleep before you have asked yourself these questions." Pythagoras
"Ethics are no mere human convention; morals are rooted in the very fabric and stuff of universal nature herself."
"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."
"There is an unborn Christ in the soul of every one of us, the Christos, the Prince of Peace, the Prince of Love."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"The past, the present, and the future are but one eternal NOW in the ever present."
"All are essentially unified in a divine oneness."
"The universe and we are one. There is but one life."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"We are all sparks of the divine heart."
"The divine womb of being out of which we came in the dawn of time, is still our Mother."
"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."
"Universal brotherhood is inherent in any properly organized and enduring social structure."
"At the core of every human being, indeed of every atom in the cosmos, is a living divinity." Grace F. Knoche, foreword
