From time to time I find various quotes that seem to perk up my interest, and that allow me a moment to pause and reflect. I am adding some of them to this page. I hope you will also find them both meaningful and insightful.
"Be thankful for the wonderful gift of being able to serve humanity, your planet, and your God. Be grateful for the opportunity to live your life purposefully in tune with the will of the Source of All."
"Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains." Dianne Ackerman
“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.” Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in NY
“In the words of the great Tibetan master/Bodhisattva Gwalwa Karmapa, the Singing Bowls of Tibet emit the ‘Sound of the Void’, the sound of the universe manifesting. They are a symbol of the 'unknowable' and as an alloy, date back to the Buddha, Shakyamni (560-480 B.C.). Their origins and detailed histories are shrouded in the distant past and are surely a gift from the shamanistic 'Bon' religion which precedes Buddhism in Tibet by centuries. For centuries they have been utilized for healing and consciousness transformation.” Richard Rudis, Sound Pioneer and owner of Sacred Sound Workshops
"....From the Office of Alternative Medicine, NHI: Report of the Panel on Mind IBody Intervention:
The comments on prayer and spiritual healing were as radical as can be made by medical doctors in a major government institution. For example:
"Until the turn of the century, scientists had no explanation for a very common event: sunshine. An understanding of why the sun shines had to await the development of modern nuclear physics. Of course, the ignorance of scientists did not annul sunlight.
Just so, although the evidence is not as immediate, spiritual healing may be valid in the absence of a validating theory."
