Angels and Mortals, Their Co-Creative Power
Maria Parisen, compiler

2 "All upon the earth lives, moves and has its being and is dependent upon this intelligence called the Earth Soul or Earth Mother." C. R. F. Seymour, 'The Old Gods'

3 "The spiritual origin of all matter is hinted at in the theories of modern physics when the subatomic constituents of matter are described as nothing more than mathematical structures, essentially mental." James H. Hindes, contemporary American philosopher and author

7 "Men have traversed the whole Earth, have penetrated the wilds, scaled the peaks and conquered the polar wastes. Let them now seek within the form, scale the height of their own consciousness, penetrate its depths, in search of that inner Power and Life by which alone they may become strong in will and spiritually enriched." Geoffrey Hodson, 'The Greater Gods'

12 "We live and move and have our being in the Universal Mind." Jeanine Miller, 'The Shining Ones of the Vedas'

15 "Good will is the harmony of the cosmos made audible in human consciousness. It is that good will which is the true end and meaning of every human life." Jay G. Williams, Ph.D., Chair of the Dept. of Religion at Hamilton College, Clinton, N. Y.

16 "The all-powerful and ineffable God, who was before all ages but herself had no beginning nor will she cease to exist after the end of the ages – she it is who formed every creature in a marvelous way by her own will." Hildegard of Bingen, quoted by Matthew Fox, 'All Beings Celebrate Creation'

17 "Esoteric studies reveal Cosmos as a vast hierarchy of lives evolving through Law."

18 "Ultimately, to be sure, there is only one Monad (a term from Greek that means 'unity'). But as that Monad is reflected in evolved matter and the developed kingdoms of life, it is continually refracted, so that it seems to itself to become increasingly limited and fragmented. Thus the One apparently divides into the many." John Algeo, 'Dark Angels'

19 "Religions embody wide-ranging ideas about God, angels, and saviors. But what is vital is the underlying vision of wholeness….a celebration of diversity, commitment to connectedness, and furthuring of altruism."

20 "An Orphic teaching runs, 'One is the Self Begotten, and all things were derived from this same one.' The Egyptians called God 'Ua Neter', the One God." C. R. F. Seymour, contemporary esotericist

21 "First let every soul consider that it is the World Soul which created all things, breathing into them the breath of life – into all living things which are on Earth, in the air, and in the sea, and the stars in heaven, the Sun, and the great heaven itself. The Creative World Soul sets them in their order and directs their motions." Plotinus (205-270ad), founder of Neoplatonism

22 "Creative spiritual impulses constantly flow like music into the world. At times harmonious, at other times dissonant, spiritual forces 'sound forth' into human lives, giving new impulses and shaping reality….This 'heavenly music' sets the world and human souls vibrating with inner movements, which are experienced as insights, soul-moods, impulses of will and inspirations." James H. Hindes, contemporary American philosopher and author
