Angels and Mortals, Their Co-Creative Power
Maria Parisen, compiler

1 "Eternity is manifested continually by means of time to those who dwell within time." Emanuel Swedenborg

2 "Humans are…beings who serve as a focus for the outworking of patterns of meaning as well as content. Sacred psychology calls for renewing our commitment to a science of the soul, in which imagining is primary."

3 "Freedom and love are specifically the mission of the human race." James H. Hindes, contemporary American author

4 "Depth psychologists say that imagining may be a primary means of perception and the creative agency of the soul. Imagination brings together spirit and matter in new wholes which are expressed in art, poetry, religion and science. It is a valid means of visioning the inner life of things."

5 "The sun makes of our planet an alchemical retort in which the ocean waters are lifted to heaven and then, their impurities distilled away, are returned to the earth in drops of rain. This continuous circular process epitomizes the natural interrelationship between heaven and earth – between the archetypal figures of the collective unconscious and man's ego reality." Sallie Nichols, Jungian author

6 "The religious spirit celebrates unity in diversity and the infinite as inseparable from finite things. It mandates integrity of relationship from deep within the human psyche, ordering an unfoldment of powers which makes possible communion and cooperation."

7 "Men have traversed the whole Earth, have penetrated the wilds, scaled the peaks and conquered the polar wastes. Let them now seek within the form, scale the height of their own consciousness, penetrate its depths, in search of that inner Power and Life by which alone they may become strong in will and spiritually enriched." Geoffrey Hodson, 'The Greater Gods'

8 "I have capitalized the word 'Nature' because it is the Numen in manifestation, the expression of God's law and will." Laurence J. Bendit, 'The Incarnation of the Angels'

9 "The Mystery schools based their training methods on the maxim, 'As above, so below.' They taught that man is a replica of the Great Cosmos." C. E. F. Seymour, 'The Old Gods'

10 "Creative spiritual impulses constantly flow like music into the world. At times harmonious, at other times dissonant, spiritual forces 'sound forth' into human lives, giving new impulses and shaping reality….This 'heavenly music' sets the world and human souls vibrating with inner movements, which are experienced as insights, soul-moods, impulses of will and inspirations." James H. Hindes, contemporary American philosopher and author

11 "The genius of the myth-makers of history has been that they choose the forms of expression consistent with their own inner leading….Myths are the products of creative imagination, which the dictionary defines as 'the power to represent the real more fully and truly than it appears to the senses and in its ideal and universal character.'"

12 "Humanity possesses within itself a spark of the highest spiritual consciousness." Stephan A. Hoeller, 'Angels Holy and Unholy'

13 "From the Lord's Prayer (Thy will be done) to the Taoist idea of 'wu-wei' (action through nonaction), the consensus among spiritual masters is that to come into full ownership of our being we have to abandon ourselves to divine providence." Michael Grosso, 'The Cult of the Guardian Angel'

14 "The human psyche embodies, reflects, and is inseparable from cosmic Soul-Spirit."

15 "Religions embody wide-ranging ideas about God, angels, and saviors. But what is vital is the underlying vision of wholeness….a celebration of diversity, commitment to connectedness, and furthuring of altruism."

16 "We must not only bring the earth's life into balance again but bring the human family together."

17 "The Wisdom Tradition holds that there is but one inexhaustible source of reality from which all things come and apart from which nothing is." John Algeo, 'Dark Angels'

18 "Somewhere in the depths of our beings there is direct and individual touch with the angel which is also ourselves, and which we can call upon in various ways." Laurence J. Bendit, 'The Incarnation of the Angels'

19 "The imprint of the eternal is everywhere. We have only to vision a little more deeply to see it."

20 "Good will is the harmony of the cosmos made audible in human consciousness. It is that good will which is the true end and meaning of every human life." Jay G. Williams, Ph.D., Chair of the Dept. of Religion at Hamilton College, Clinton, N. Y.

21 "An Orphic teaching runs, 'One is the Self Begotten, and all things were derived from this same one.' The Egyptians called God 'Ua Neter', the One God." C. R. F. Seymour, contemporary esotericist

22 "Deity can be found by introspection within the human mind." Jay G. Williams, 'On Re-Imagining Angels'

23 "All things and events in the world are established and maintained in Being by divine influx." Roberts Avens, depth psychologist

24 "Man can get into intimate touch – almost at will – with the world soul once he has realized that the mind touches that which it constantly and sympathetically thinks about." C. R. F. Seymour, contemporary esotericist

25 "All beings and all things are filled with the indwelling Life or Fire of God." Geoffrey Hodson, 'The Greater Gods'
