"Withdraw into yourself, and if you do not find yourself beautiful as yet, do as the creator of a statue that is to be made beautiful; he cuts away here, he smooths there, he makes this line lighter, this other purer, until he has shown a beautiful face upon the statue."
"Meditation is a way of encountering and knowing God because, as Christian masters have always taught, to know the Self in ourselves is to know God who is all in all."
Father Laurence Freeman
"Only spiritual consciousness - realization of God's presence in oneself and in every other living being can save the world . . . Do your part to bring God's kingdom on Earth."
"In cultivating our spiritual sense we become receptive to thoughts which come to us from within. We become hearers of the Word rather than speakers."
"Our normal waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the flimsiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different...No account of the universe in its totality can be final which leaves these other forms of consciousness disregarded."
"When the mirror of your heart becomes clear and pure, you'll behold images which are outside this world. You will see the image and the image-Maker, both the carpet of the spititual expanse And the One who spreads it."
"Anything that ripples the consciousness, Sensual or emotional, distorts whatever is perceived. But calmness is clarity of perception, intuition itself."
"Relax and throw the searchlight of vitality within to reveal the presence of Spirit."
"Rest in the deep, clear well of contentment. Peace already IS."
