Jan Nicolaas Kind

 Jan Nicolaas KindLet me be perfectly honest with you: I am not bothered when people use axioms, since the world is full of them. Many go directly to the point, hitting the nail right on the head. Having a bearing on our Theosophical circles nowadays, here is one of them: “If the teacher cannot live up to what the teacher teaches, he or she should no longer teach, but return to being a humble student again” . . . I can only say: Amen!

Jan Nicolaas Kind

The Mother

The MotherA teacher must not have any sense of essential superiority over the students nor preference or attachment whatsoever for one or another and, in the matter of self-confidence, must have a sense of the relativity of his (or her) importance.

Meher Baba

Meher BabaIn actuality God is not far from the seeker, nor is it impossible to see Him. He is like the sun, which is ever shining above you. It is you who have held over your head the umbrella of your variegated mental impressions which hide Him from your view. You have only to remove the umbrella and the Sun is there for you to see. It does not have to be brought there from anywhere. But such a tiny and trivial thing as an umbrella can deprive you of the sight of such a stupendous fact as the Sun.

Meher Baba (Indian mystic and spiritual master)

Rupert Sheldrake

Rupert SheldrakeFor many who have experienced it, this vision of a changeless reality has been so powerful and so self-evidently true that they have concluded the changing world of everyday experience is somehow less real. The impermanence of things in this world is an appearance or reflection or illusion. Underlying everything is the true reality which neither comes into being nor passes away.

Rupert Sheldrake (Biologist, Theosophist and author)

Hans Küng

Hans KüngFaith in God is not an irrational, blind, daring leap, but a trust that is responsible in the eyes of reason and grounded in reality itself.

 

Hans Küng (Swiss Catholic priest, controversial theologian and author)
