The Findhorn Community

1 "Man has freedom of choice and thus the power to create."

2 "We would shout it in words of fire that oneness is."

3 "The esoteric traditions of all cultures speak of the 'withinness' of things that seeks to externalize and to fulfill itself. If we think of our planet as an organic, growing system – a living being – then it, too, has an image of fulfillment buried within its seed center, an image that is using all of nature as its means of emergence."

4 "As we begin to recognize God in every aspect of the world around us, that part of the world is redeemed, until ultimately the whole planet is redeemed."

5 "The most sacred esoteric teachings throughout the ages have held that in understanding the inner and outer realities of nature, humanity can understand itself."

6 "Through love, we recognize and enhance the interrelationship of all life forms."

7 "As human beings, we can choose to see each element of creation as separate. Or we can choose to see the one life that is within them all."

8 "Let the oneness grow in your awareness."

9 "Out of separation comes synthesis, and out of domination comes cooperation. This is the promise of recreating the Garden that is Earth's essence."

10 "You are the gardener of your own being, the seed of your destiny."

11 "Together with minerals, plants and animals, we make up the body and consciousness of a single living organism – Earth. We move within this body, intricately related to and dependent upon every other part of it."

12 "I know that God is within each one of us, within everything."

13 "Humanity represents the stage of Earth's unfoldment at which the planetary soul becomes not only self aware but functionally and creatively conscious of the processes through which growth, awareness and the externalization of spirit through form take place."

14 "The current ecology movement is attempting to restore balance by pointing out the interrelatedness of life upon the Earth, insisting upon a holistic vision for survival."

15 "One part of nature cannot be isolated from another, so action taken against any part sets up a chain of events that affects the whole."

16 "God is an indwelling presence, the core of what I am and what everything is. God is life itself, speaking through all life."

17 "The image of God is the process of divinity itself, and that is a process of growth, of nourishment, of wisdom, light and love. It is the process of life unfolding itself into greater levels of freedom and knowing and expression."

18 "Through love we can blend with the consciousnes of a plant or with the consciousness of another human being."

19 "All have the breath of God in them. The air you breathe – is it not full of God, is it not your life force? All of creation shares in it, contributes something to it."

20 "All is one life. Play your part in making life one."

21 "This idea of a life and spirit informing nature and directing its activities is not new within human culture; it is the basis for such philosophies as animism and pantheism."

22 "The truth is within me and within you – the whole of it. Where anything exists, God is. Not part of God but God indivisible."

23 "Ultimately, it is love that fulfills all laws."

24 "To heal the Earth, which is our greater body, we must create an ecological balance within as well as without. We do so by recognizing that the basis of life is interrelationship."

25 "Oneness is not just on the high or inner levels where God is but is right here and now."
