Mystical Musings

Old Testament Koan


The nature of God is a circle of which the center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere.


Love God and do what you will.
St. Augustine


The eye with which I see God is the same eye with which God sees me.
Meister Eckhart


The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are out there.
Yasutani Roshi


In this very breath that we take now lies the secret that all great teachers try to tell us.
Peter Matthiessen


This is this.
The Deer Hunter


Only This, This!


When hungry, eat your rice; when tired, close your eyes.
Fools may laugh at me, but wise men will know what I mean.


When the Many are reduced to One, to what is the One reduced?
Zen Koan


Truly, I say to you, whosoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.
Luke 18:17


God is in me or else is not at all.
Wallace Stevens


God is so omnipresent … God is an angel in an angel, and a stone in a stone, and a straw in a straw.
John Donne


God made everything out of nothing.
But the nothingness shows through.
Paul Valery


The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly.
G.K. Chesterton


The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
Gerard Manley Hopkins


Whoever knows himself knows God.


The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.
Carl Jung


If you gaze for long into the abyss, the abyss also gazes into you.


God be in my head
And in my understanding;
God be in mine eyes
And in my looking;
God be in my mouth
And in my speaking;
God be in my heart
And in my thinking;
God be at my end
And at my departing.
Sarum Primer


We do not walk to God with the feet of our body, nor would wings, if we had them, carry us to Him, but we go to Him, by the affections of our Soul.
St. Augustine


Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance. Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor vexation...Where there is peace and meditation, there is neither anxiety nor doubt.
St. Francis of Assisi


Lord, lock me up in the deepest depths of your heart; and then holding me there, burn me, purify me, set me on fire, sublimate me, till I become utterly what you would have me be...
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


Remember that you have only one Soul; that you have only one death to die; that you have only one life, which is short and has to be lived by you alone; and there is only one glory, which is eternal. If you do this, there will be many things about which you care nothing.
St. Teresa of Avila


Be not perplexed, be nor afraid, everything passes, God does not change. Patience wins all things. He who has God lacks nothing; God alone suffices.
St. Teresa of Avila


God does not demand that I be successful. God demands that I be faithful. When facing God, results are not important. Faithfulness is what is important.
Mother Teresa


There is no one in the whole human family to whom kindly affection is not due by reason of the bond of a common humanity, although it may not be due on the ground of reciprocal love.
St. Augustine


Though our natural life were no life, but rather a continual dying, yet we have two lives besides that, an eternal life reserved for heaven, but yet a heavenly life too, a spiritual life, even in this world.
John Donne


What I know of the divine science and Holy Scripture I learnt in woods and field.
St. Bernard
