Experiencing the Soul Eliot Jay Rosen, editor Essays on experiencing the Soul by The Dalai Lama, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Jean Houston, Ram Dass, Gerald Jampolsky, and many others.
"I believe that on a higher level, everyone embodies the archetypal aspects of Jesus, Krishna, Mohammed, et cetera. These archetypes of our ideals serve to heal our sense of soul-loss. They help us remember a part of us that we often forget about in everyday life." Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., 'The Soul and Quantum Physics'
"We are here on Earth to learn to love." Betty J. Eadie, author and transformational speaker
"One thing I am convinced of is that life is an ongoing teaching-learning experience that continues after physical death. Those who feel that life comes to an end at death – life DOES NOT come to an end. Death is the closing of one door and the opening of another." Jean Houston, Ph.D., 'We Are Citizens of a Multidimensional Universe'
"Death is no more than a passing from one room to another."
"Our true mind is not restricted to our intellectual or cognitive power, but is a fundamental goodness or 'good heart' that is at the core of every being." Christine Longaker, founding director of the Buddhist Rigpa Fellowship, 'What Counts at the Moment of Death'
"The challenge of the next millennium will be to develop an adequate scientific understanding of consciousness itself....the door is always open to directly experiencing this universal consciousness for ourselves." Dr. Amit Goswami, teacher of theoretical physics, 'How Consciousness Creates the Material Universe'
"Humans are loved by God beyond our comprehension, and we will feel how blessed we are when we learn compassion instead of judgment, empathy instead of pity, and realize that this life in the physical body is a very small part of our total existence." Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, 'Experiences of My Soul in Life and Death'
"Truly the face you see of the person in front of you is none other than your own,…we're all altars of the Divine One." Joan Borysenko, Ph. D., 'Glimpses of Eternity – My Mother's Last Gift Upon Her Passing'
"As someone who has lived with many traditional cultures around the world, I have found that every one of these cultures supports the belief that life is continuous – that there is part of the self that simply does not die when it's the body's time to go." Jean Houston, Ph.D., 'We Are Citizens of a Multidimensional Universe'
"Follow the universal principles that are stressed in the scriptures of both East and West. Let your mind dwell on: 'What can I do for others? How can I be honest, truthful, straightforward? How can I be kind? How can I be generous and unselfish?' These are principles that lead us Godward." Sri Daya Mata, disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, 'The Soul's Need for God'
"Soul is eternal; its language is metaphor, which belongs in this moment and in the timeless, spaceless moment." Marion Woodman, 'From Psyche to Soul - The Healing Power of Archetypes'
"The essence of our being is love." Gerald Jampolsky, 'Attitudinal Healing - The Essence of Our Being Is Love'
"By using archetypal symbols that resonate on a universal level, art can evoke the complete range of possible life experiences, including the boundless nature of our souls." Alex Grey
"The universe is extraordinarily vast and complex, and at the same time, it seems to have this seamless web of interconnectivity and kinship. We are indeed participants in a much larger life." Jean Houston, Ph.D., 'We Are Citizens of a Multidimensional Universe'
"Death is simply a shedding of the physical body like the butterfly shedding its cocoon. It is a transition to a higher state of consciousness where you continue to perceive, to understand, to laugh, and to be able to grow." Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, 'Experiences of My Soul in Life and Death'
"What a vast world of love and joy is within the soul! We don't have to acquire it; it is already ours." Sri Daya Mata, disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, 'The Soul's Need for God'
"Let's practice what Christ taught, what Buddha taught, what Krishna taught – love for God and for God in every being. We need to spread the universality of God's love, of God's light – by our own example, by how we live our lives….That Divine Love is the most powerful force in the universe." Sri Daya Mata, disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, 'The Soul's Need for God'
"The spiritual origin of man and where we come from – THAT is the next great area of exploration." Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
"All beings are connected. We are all children of one parent, our Creator." Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, 'Experiences of My Soul in Life and Death'
"By 'essence', I mean that part of our nature we recognize as the god in hiding, the source quality or soul quality that links us to our highest becoming, that transcends time and space, life and death." Jean Houston, Ph.D., 'We Are Citizens of a Multidimensional Universe'
"'Know ye not…that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?' (1 Corinthians 3:16). Indeed it does; we are part of Him! We think that WE are beating these hearts, that WE are taking in this oxygen, that WE are running these bodies. No, it is GOD who is doing all of this." Sri Daya Mata, disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, 'The Soul's Need for God'
"Oh, God, what's it all about? In my view, even blackness and despair has been designed into God's system. You may not completely believe or even remember this in this moment, but on some level, a part of you has actually created all of it." Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., 'The Soul and Quantum Physics'
"When I look into the eyes of children, I see their divine origin." Sarah Hinze, author, 'Meeting the Souls of Our Children Before Birth'
"Love is always stronger than hate. The positive is always stronger than the negative. For me, it's nice to know that even though the world is in terrible shape with all the fighting, politics, and negativity going on, nothing is stronger than love." Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, 'Experiences of My Soul in Life and Death'
"Each child is created in the special image and likeness of God for greater things - to love and to be loved." Mother Teresa
