In the mystic traditions of the different religions we have a remarkable unity of spirit. Whatever religion they may profess, they are spiritual kinsmen. While the different religions in their historic forms bind us to limited groups and militate against the development of loyalty to the world community, the mystics have already stood for the fellowship of humanity in harmony with the spirit of the mystics of ages gone by.
Smell the sea and feel the sky, Let your soul and spirit fly.van morrison
As we go star-stilled in the mystic garden,All the prose of this life run there to rhyme,How eagerly then will the poor heart pardonAll of these hurts of Time!Ah, yes, in that hour of our souls dream-driven,In that high, white hour, O my wild sea-bride,The tears and the years will be all forgiven, ...And all be justified.edwin markham
The mystic and the physicist arrive at the same conclusion; one starting from the inner realm, the other from the outer world. The harmony between their views confirms the ancient Indian wisdom that Brahman , the ultimate reality without, is identical to Atman , the reality within.fritjof capra
To every man of vision the clear Voice speaks; there is no great leadership where there is not a mystic. Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside themselves was superior to circumstance. To choose the sure thing is treason to the soul.bruce fairchild barton
Unwind my riddle.Cruel as hawks the hours fly;Wounded men seldom come home to die;The hard waves see an arm flung high;Scorn hits strong because of a lie;Yet there exists a mystic tie.Unwind my riddle.Stephen Crane
No hammers fell, no ponderous axes rung,Like some tall palm the mystic fabric sprung.Majestic silence.Reginald Heber
No hammers fell, no ponderous axes rung;Like some tall palm the mystic fabric sprung.Majestic silence!Reginald Heber
Christ puts Himself at the head of the mystic march of the generations; and. like the mysterious aneel that Joshua saw in the plain by Jericho, makes the lofty claim, "Nay, but as the captain of the Lord's host am I come up."alexander maclaren
My aim in painting is to create pulsating, luminous, and open surfaces that emanate a mystic light, in accordance with my deepest insight into the experience of life and nature.hans hofmann
No word in our language not even "Socialism" has been employed more loosely than " Mysticism ." … The history of the word begins in close connexion with the Greek mysteries. A mystic is one who has been, or is being, initiated into some esoteric knowledge of Divine things, about which he must keep his mouth shut…william ralph inge
Somewhere at the heart of the universe sounds the true mystic note: Me.peter porter
The character structure of modern man, who reproduces a six-thousand-year-old patriarchal authoritarian culture is typified by characterological armoring against his inner nature and against the social misery which surrounds him. This characterolgical armoring of the character is the basis of isolation, indigence, craving for authority, fear of responsibility, mystic longing, sexual misery, and neurotically impotent rebelliousness.wilhelm reich
Abstruse and mystic thoughts you must express With painful care, but seeming easiness; For truth shines brightest thro' the plainest dress.Wentworth Dillon
Of a truth, men are mystically united: a mystic bond of brotherhood makes all men one.thomas carlyle
The fate of our times is characterized by rationalization and intellectualization and, above all, by the disenchantment of the world. Precisely the ultimate and most sublime values have retreated from public life either into the transcendental realm of mystic life or into the brotherliness of direct and personal human relations. It is not accidental that our greatest art is intimate and not monumental.
Vishnu Puarana is one of the eighteen traditional puranas, which were an important genre of smriti text, and the repository of much of traditional Indian mythology... Most of the puranas are highly sectarian as is the Vishnu Purana which is focused on the worship of Vishnu . It gives an exhaustive account of Vishnu’s mystic deeds – many of which have become the common mythic currency for many traditional Hindus – as well as instructions for how, where, and when Vishnu is to be worshipped.
I never was but an isolated bon vivant, which is absurd; or a mystic bon vivant, which is an impossible thing.
Cupid is a casuist, a mystic, and a cabalist, Can your lurking thought surprise, And interpret your device, * * * * * All things wait for and divine him, How shall I dare to malign him?ralph waldo emerson
So shall they build me altars in their zeal, Where knaves shall minister, and fools shall kneel: Where faith may mutter o'er her mystic spell, Written in blood and Bigotry may swell The sail he spreads for Heav'n with blasts from hell!thomas moore
Within a bony labyrinthean cave, Reached by the pulse of the aërial wave, This sibyl, sweet, and mystic Sense is found, Muse, that presides o'er all the Powers of Sound.
