What strikes me is the fact that in our society, art has become something which is only related to objects, and not to individuals, or to life. That art is something which is specialized or which is done by experts. But couldn’t everyone’s life become a work of art? Why should the lamp or the house be an art object, not not your life?
We must come to understand the deep mutual connection or kinship between the various forms of our spirituality. We must recollect our original spiritual and moral substance, which grew out of the same essential experience of humanity. I believe that this is the only way to achieve a genuine renewal of our sense of responsibility for ourselves and for the world. And at the same time… it is the only way to achieve a deeper understanding among cultures that will enable them to work together in a truly ecumenical way to create a new orer for the world.
The unconscious is the only available source of religious experience. This is certainly not to say that what we call the unconscious is idential with God or is set up in his place. It is simply the meium from which religioous experience seems to flow. As to what the further cause of such experience might be, the answer to this lies beyond the range of human knowledge.
C. G. Jung
What each must seek in his life never was on land or sea. It is something out of his own unique potentiality for experience… something that never has been and never could have been experienced by anyone else.
Feelings are everywhere...be gentle.
Feelings are neither good nor are they bad. It is what I do with my feelings which makes the difference.
We are not Human Beings seeking a Spiritual Experience We are Spiritual Beings living a Human Experience.
Who I am is Important
Who I am NOT, is just as important.
"It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson -
Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels so good.
View every problem as an opportunity...
When it is dark enough you can see the stars.
