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

2 "We are all sparks of the divine heart."

3 "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."

4 "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."

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

6 "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

7 "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."

8 "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."

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 "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."

11 "We may say with great reverence, yet with all truth, that back of all our labor however imperfectly we human beings may be doing, back of it as its origin and inspiration is this grand divinity."

12 "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."

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

14 "Universal brotherhood is inherent in any properly organized and enduring social structure."

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

16 "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."

17 "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."

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

19 "I am my brother – in our inmost WE ARE ONE."

20 "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."

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

22 "All exists in an eternal Now."

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

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

25 "All are essentially unified in a divine oneness."
