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

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

2 "Though religion, psychology, philosophy, science and the arts all have varied languages, they all reveal related aspects of one life."

3 "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

4 "The all-powerful and ineffable God, who was before all ages but herself had no beginning nor will she cease to exist after the end of the ages – she it is who formed every creature in a marvelous way by her own will." Hildegard of Bingen, quoted by Matthew Fox, 'All Beings Celebrate Creation'

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

6 "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'

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

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

9 "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'

10 "All upon the earth lives, moves and has its being and is dependent upon this intelligence called the Earth Soul or Earth Mother." C. R. F. Seymour, 'The Old Gods'

11 "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."

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

13 "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."

14 "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'

15 "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.'"

16 "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

17 "The spiritual origin of all matter is hinted at in the theories of modern physics when the subatomic constituents of matter are described as nothing more than mathematical structures, essentially mental." James H. Hindes, contemporary American philosopher and author

18 "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'

19 "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'

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

21 "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

22 "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

23 "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'

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 "Do you wish to call Him Providence, rightly will you do so; for by His counsel…provision is made for this world so that it may proceed in an orderly fashion, and unfold His deeds to our view. Do you wish to call Him Nature? You will commit no sin; for He it is from whom all things are sprung and by whose spirit we breathe life. Do you wish to call Him the World? You will not be mistaken, for He…is all infused in its parts." Seneca (4? bc-65 ad), Roman philosopher
