The following is shared for true seekers who will be true finders! A starting point for those searching.  Philosophy, Truth Lived:


"To grasp the reality and order of being in its Science, you must begin by reckoning God as the divine Principle of all that really is. Spirit, Life, Truth, Love, combine as one,--and are the Scriptural names for God. All substance, intelligence, wisdom, being, immortality, cause, and effect belong to God. These are His attributes, the eternal manifestations of the infinite divine Principle, Love. No wisdom is wise but His wisdom; no truth is true, no love is lovely, no life is Life but the divine; no good is, but the good God bestows."         -Mary Baker Eddy 

"Sanity implies having no illusion, no image at all about oneself or about another...when you call yourself a Dutchman, forgive me for saying so, you are not quite balanced.

delusion of his consciousness.  This delusion is a kind of prison for us,
restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons
nearest to us.  Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by
widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the
whole of nature in its beauty."                         -- Albert Einstein

Do not look for the next political administration to improve the situation." --
Manly P. Hall

 "In the past I felt that the Scientific viewpoints of total objectivity, of the noninvolved Scientific observer was the be all and end all for ones life. I am no longer convinced that such a dispassionate noninvolved view of ecology will ever work.

Involvement and participation are absolutely essential for understanding and for survival of Self and of ones own species."  --John Lilly

Energy follows thought; we move toward, but not beyond, what we can imagine. What we assume, expect, or believe, creates and colors our experience. By expanding our deepest beliefs about what is possible, we change our experience of life.  --Dan Millman 

We can find spiritual solutions to problems by living at higher levels -and calling upon faster energies. In my mind, intention is now something much greater than a determined ego, or individual will. Itıs something almost totally opposite... imagine that intention is not something you do, but rather a force that exists in the universe as an invisible field of energy --Dr. Wayne Dyer. 

A substructure underpins the universe that is essentially a recording medium of everything, providing a means for everything to communicate with everything else. People are indivisible from their environment.

"Stillness is the alter of Spirit."  -- Paramahansa Yogananda



Lord Make Me An Instrument of Thy Peace

...Where there is hatred let me sow Love.

Where there Is Injury, Pardon:

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, Light;

where there is sadness, Joy

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled

as to console;

to be understood, as to understand;

to be loved, as to Love

For it is in the pardoning that we are pardoned;

and it is in the dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

--Saint Francis of Assisi


Go Placidly Amid The Noise & Haste & Remember What Peace There May Be In Silence.  As Far As Possible Without surrender be on good terms with all persons.  Speak your truth quietly & clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.  

  Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the Spirit.  If you compare yourself to others, you may become vain & bitter; for always there will be greater & lesser persons than yourself.  Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. 

  Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.  Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.  But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.  

  Be yourself, Especially do not feign affection.  Neither be cynical about Love; for it is perennial as the grass.  

  Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.  Nurture strength of Spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.  But do not distress yourself with imaginings.  Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.  Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.  

  You are a child of the Universe, no less than the trees & the Stars; you have a right to be here.  And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the Universe is unfolding as it should.  

  Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors & aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.  *  With all its sham, and drudgery & broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.  Be careful.  Strive to be happy.                                      ***
