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

1 "What encourages cooperation, togetherness, integrity, oneness is of the very essence of the life divine." Jeanine Miller, 'The Shining Ones of the Vedas'

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 "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

4 "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

5 "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

6 "There is in every human being an unconscious inlet to the highest creative energies of the spirit." Michael Grosso, 'The Cult of the Guardian Angel'

7 "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'

8 "We live and move and have our being in the Universal Mind." Jeanine Miller, 'The Shining Ones of the Vedas'

9 "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'

10 "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'

11 "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'

12 "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."

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

14 "Contemplation of a single flower may lead the seeker through. A plant displaying Nature's symmetry, a tree, a mountain range, a single peak, flowing river, a thundering cascade – each and all of these will serve the contemplative soul as entrance to the realm of the Real wherein Nature's Self abides." Geoffrey Hodson, 'The Greater Gods'

15 "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'

16 "One whole governs the moving and the stable, that which walks and flies, this variegated creation." Rigveda III.54.8

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

18 "We must explore more fully the subtleties of relationship, for even casual encounters are significant. In a living Cosmos, communion is sacred dialogue. Every meeting, even with what appears inert, is with a living presence. Through the soul of things, we envision and are beheld by divine Being." Maria Parisen, American nurse and Therapeutic Touch practitioner

19 "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

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

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

22 "Esoteric studies reveal Cosmos as a vast hierarchy of lives evolving through Law."

23 "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."

24 "Individuals have personal responsibility to choose in freedom what seems right for them." James H. Hindes, 'The Hierarchies'

25 "Blessedness consists in unanimity and harmony, so that many, even very many, suppose themselves to be one….for from the harmony of many there exists a One from which there is blessedness and happiness." Emanuel Swedenborg
