Entering the Castle: An Inner Path to God and Your Soul
Caroline Myss
Using St. Teresa of Avila's imagery of the Soul as an interior castle, the author guides us from room to room of this inner castle, preparing us for the ultimate encounter with God and our own divinity.

1 "The true self is aware of this ever-present, never-ending, eternal moment, through which all time passes." Ken Wilber, Foreword

2 "The world is not in the hands of greedy politicians or terrorists or corporate moguls or fundamentalists praying for Armageddon. The world is in the hands of God."

3 "The inner self lives in a timeless, eternal now." Ken Wilber, Foreword

4 "The mystics reassure us, as the Buddha taught, 'On life's journey, faith is nourishment and virtuous deeds a shelter.'"

5 "Where there is hatred, sow love. Where there is pain, sow love. Where there is chaos, sow love."

6 "The entire world is a divine scripture, unfolding like cosmic prayer."

7 "The closer you get to your true self, the more you live in eternity; the more you live in the timeless present, which includes thoughts of the past, the present, and the future, all occuring in the timeless now." Ken Wilber, Foreword

8 "The soul is…the force of endless resurrection; the soul is like a fire that never goes out."

9 "Heaven has a design and plan far greater than what can be shown to any human being. All that is within the vast scope of creation has a purpose known to God, including each human life."

10 "Each of us is enriched by the presence of God everywhere, in every blade of grass, in every beam of light, in every prayer, and in every truth in every scripture."

11 "When you wait in faith, all will be provided. And yes, it is difficult…and yes, it is splendid."

12 "Love is God in action in this world."

13 "Begin to dedicate daily prayer to those who have harmed you, to those who do not pray for themselves, and to the well-being of the human community."

14 "The soul is essentially a vessel of love."

15 "The wonder of love is its boundless capacity to heal, to bring forgiveness, to soothe the angry soul, to repair broken relationships, to make things right in all ways."

16 "The choices you make are always and only motivated by either faith or fear."

17 "Within the interior of your soul, God is present."

18 "Your role is to empower the life you have and the person you are – and the person you could be – with the energy of grace that listening to your soul gives you."

19 "We want to touch the sacred and feel its energy, to connect to it personally and to connect to it through our purpose. The divine calls to us through places, actions, and objects, constantly seducing us."

20 "Always, beyond the darkness, God's greater plan is in motion. That is the truth you need to trust."

21 "The human soul is indeed made in the image and likeness of God."

22 "You are never without divine guidance; you are never outside the orbit of divine sight."

23 "We have a theology in our biology. It is instinctual, just as birds know their paths, beavers build dams, and whales communicate with one another. We are born with knowledge of natural laws, through which the divine reveals or animates its presence in our bones, blood, tissues – our cellular beings."

24 "You are watched over and guided down to the smallest detail of your life."

25 "The overall number of inner selves is but one." Ken Wilber, Foreword
