“To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions.”

Personality is the instrument of the One Self.
Every detail of our daily experience is a good gift from the One Source.
There can be no evil gift from the One Giver of All Good.”

“Symbols are oracular forms–mysterious patterns creating vortices in the substances of the invisible world. They are centers of a mighty force, figures pregnant with an awful power, which, when properly fashioned, loose fiery whirlwinds upon the earth.”

On this day, I’m remembering Kabbalist Chaim Vital of Safed (1542-1620).

“Rabbi Chaim Vital was a most unusual individual. Possessing an extremely brilliant mind, he was acknowledged as an expert in Kabbalah even before he met the Ari [Isaac Luria]. At the time of this first meeting, he was engaged in writing a commentary on the Zohar. Although only twenty-seven at the time, he was already an outstanding expert in alchemy, astronomy, astrology, Kabbalistic magic, and all the occult arts. When Chaim Vital first heard of the Ari, he hesitated to visit him, considering himself a far superior Kabbalist… The relationship between the Ari and Chaim Vital is most significant … In all, Vital was the Ari’s disciple for only twenty-two months, but during this time, he was able to absorb a prodigious amount. He became the leading expounder of the Ari’s system, writing over a dozen large volumes on the subject.” (Kaplan Meditation and Kabbalah, 187,189)

“Every action in this physical dimension has a corresponding influence in the Upper Worlds. In truth, both worlds are actually one reality; they are like reflections in a mirror. The Light is aroused and then reflected back to us in the physical world to refine and perfect our souls.”

“We build and strengthen within ourselves the magnificent scene of the Kingdom of Love, and through the experience of such visualization we accomplish the sublimation of our own psychic life.

In a procedure of this kind, maintained over a lifetime of quiet devotion, we accomplish our citizenship in the realms of eternal truth. Thus we gradually create the radiant sphere in which we are going to live.

The peace in our own hearts is sufficient to all our needs.

The kindness which we feel and express gradually enfolds us and becomes the kindly universe in which we will dwell in peace forever. 

All such good moods are ways of tuning into the eternal mood of goodness which exists in space.

The experience of the virtuous life is also the experience of the virtuous universe, which is the real world to which we must return regardless of any false beliefs which may lead us astray for a short time.

The universe of ideals can become the universe of realities. Nothing actually changes but men’s minds. When these minds seek the beautiful, they will find it.”

– Manly P. Hall: Excerpted from “TO DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM,” from a lecture given December 14, 1969. at The Philosophical Research Society.

“This Egyptian deity (Isis) under many names appears as the principle of natural fecundity (fertility; fruitfulness) among nearly all the religions of the ancient world. She was known as the goddess with ten thousand appellations and was metamorphosed by Christianity into the Virgin Mary, for Isis, although she gave birth to all living things–chief among them the Sun–still remained a virgin, according to the legendary accounts.”

”Wherever we direct our attention, we spend creative energy.
We can save creative energy if we divide attention, if we do not become identified with things, people, and ideas.

When we become identified with things, people, and ideas, we then forget our Self and lose creative energy in the most pitiful way.

It is essential to know that we need to save creative energy in order to awaken the consciousness, and that the creative energy is the living potential, it is the vehicle of the consciousness, it is the instrument in order to awaken the consciousness.”
