Entering the Castle: An Inner Path to God and Your Soul
Caroline Myss
Using St. Teresa of Avila's imagery of the Soul as an interior castle, the author guides us from room to room of this inner castle, preparing us for the ultimate encounter with God and our own divinity.

1 "Your link to the divine cannot be broken….it is a sealed, eternal bond."

2 "Heaven has a design and plan far greater than what can be shown to any human being. All that is within the vast scope of creation has a purpose known to God, including each human life."

3 "Pray to be open to the experience of divine love."

4 "Even though you may not think you see or hear him, God is always present."

5 "The soul is essentially a vessel of love."

6 "Teresa of Avila observed, 'God lives also among the pots and pans', in other words in our daily actions."

7 "The divine comprises the collective soul of humanity and all life."

8 "Your soul is a vessel of sacred graces: compassion, harmony, wisdom, love, endurance, humor, patience, healing, and vision….these are the essence, the building blocks of your highest potential."

9 "Every single action generated by every life form affects the whole of the universe."

10 "Do not presume that your prayers are not answered, because they are. It is up to you to receive and listen. Practice silence and contemplation as a means of continually attuning to the one clear voice of the divine that is present within your soul."

11 "The entire world is a divine scripture, unfolding like cosmic prayer."

12 "The mystics reassure us, as the Buddha taught, 'On life's journey, faith is nourishment and virtuous deeds a shelter.'"

13 "Your cell tissue is part of everything and everything lives within you, from the smallest spinning particle of energy, to a breathing tree in the forest, to the collective consciousness of all nations."

14 "You are connected to the love that binds the collective soul of humanity."

15 "The overall number of inner selves is but one." Ken Wilber, Foreword

16 "We have been secretly fed from beyond space and time. That's why we look for something more than this." Rumi, 'The Soul of Rumi'

17 "The true self is aware of this ever-present, never-ending, eternal moment, through which all time passes." Ken Wilber, Foreword

18 "Where there is hatred, sow love. Where there is pain, sow love. Where there is chaos, sow love."

19 "You are watched over and guided down to the smallest detail of your life."

20 "The true self in each and every one of us is the true self that Jesus of Nazareth realized – 'I and the Father are one.'" Ken Wilber, Foreword

21 "Within the interior of your soul, God is present."

22 "You are never without divine guidance; you are never outside the orbit of divine sight."

23 "We want to touch the sacred and feel its energy, to connect to it personally and to connect to it through our purpose. The divine calls to us through places, actions, and objects, constantly seducing us."

24 "You are a container for God in this world."

25 "This infinite and eternal self is the home of spirit in you and in each and every sentient being."
