Spirituality Quote of the Week

The spiritual life, to which art belongs and of which she is one of the mightiest elements, is a complicated but definite and easily definable movement forwards and upwards. This movement is the movement of experience. It may take different forms, but it holds at bottom to the same inner thought and purpose.

-- Wassily Kandinsky

Spirituality Quote of the Week

In my view, the realistic goal to be attained through spiritual practice is not some permanent state of enlightenment that admits of no further efforts, but a capacity to be free in this moment, in the midst of whatever is happening. If you can do that, you have already solved most of the problems you will encounter in life.

Spirituality Quote of the Week

To understand that we are connected, that we belong to one another, is a powerful deterrent to fratricide, terrorism, slavery, and violence. We are not warring tribes. We are the same tribe.
