1 “The most famous image of the Self is the mandala. Mandala means ‘circle’ in Sanskrit, and usually refers to a sacred circle.”

2 “We cannot dissect the secrets of love with the knives of logic. To analyze it is to destroy it, and there is a point at which indeed it passes our understanding. Yet in its strange silent way it conveys us to the living heart of the universe.”

3 “’The circle is the emblem of our religion’, says Rolling Thunder. ‘It’s in all things that have life.’”

4 “The love of God moves all things. When we begin to use the love of God, we see the love of God everywhere, in trees, animals, rocks – the same sacred breath.” Johnny Moses, Native American Elder

5 “Seeing the universe at root as fundamentally benign is the common perception of the mystic suffused with divine love.”

6 “Each of us is a microcosm of the universe; nothing exists in the universe that does not also exist in us.”

7 “All of us are related to everything else, to the elements, to all the animal life. We’re all connected to the tree of life, too – you name it. We’re all the same….We’re part of everything here on Earth, and we’re part of the moon, sun, and stars.” Corbin Harney
