Invisible Acts of Power: Personal Choices That Create Miracles
Caroline Myss

1 "The ancient Greek philosopher Epictetus wrote, 'The universe is but one great city, full of beloved ones, divine and human by nature, endeared to each other.'"

6 "Being of service is not an option, it is a biological necessity. Every kind action we do for someone is a reanimation of our own life force – and of the other person's. Many spiritual traditions share the Golden Rule: treat others as you would like to be treated.'"

7 "We are not alone in this world and even in the direst times, our prayers are heard and answered."

8 "Choose to seek the spiritual presence in every moment and situation of your life. Even the smallest positive action can help someone heal."

15 "Only when we see ourselves in our true human context, as members of a race which is intended to be one organism and 'one body', will we begin to understand the positive importance not only of the successes but of the failures and accidents in our lives." Thomas Merton, 'No Man Is An Island'

16 "The spirit within us has faith that our needs will always be met."

17 "Our spirit inherently understands that we are all one – with other people and our universe."

18 "We are meant to care about each other and the well-being of the entire human family because our physical survival and spiritual survival depend on one another. We are drawn to help each other, to be there for one another, because we are made of the same spiritual substance."

19 "Faith is an active force – not a passive one – an invisible power, like love."

20 "Science and religion tell us that we are energetically interdependent; that matter and energy are the same throughout the universe. Our spiritual interconnectedness and intuitive signals form, in effect, an energetic Internet."

21 "It is impossible to be both wise and pessimistic."

22 "Trusting in the unseen, ineffable spiritual purpose behind our soul's journey generates a grace that illuminates the world."

23 "Somehow even in the midst of the worst chaos, the universe still provides a map for our survival."
