Tilicia Haridat

“Would you recognize your soul if you met it?”
Dominic Riccitello

“To breathe air, to sight a beautiful day, to hear a bird... those are marvellous things and its unfortunate we as humans never feel satisified nor let it be enough.”
Nikki Rowe

“I am nothing but oxygen and hydrogen, a luminous sphere of plasma held together by helium and gravity, And like a balloon I float on earth, waiting to be released back into the sky, where I will explode into a thousand pieces. I shall leave behind my body, just like air abandons the skin of a shattered balloon, and the magnetic dust that carries my heart and spirit will lift us back to congregate and shine with the stars. Home again, in the fluorescent kingdom of the constellations, I will once again be called by my soul’s true name.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Haunted by the longing to feel something real, deep and magical; I searched for a shared ecstasy... that's when you came along.”
Lebo Grand, Sensual Lifestyle

Donna Goddard
“Those we love become our teachers whether we intend it or not.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer

“She had come to analysis because she was, as she put it, “ruining her children.” ... “But you are so frustrating,” she said. “I want you to take something away from me, and you keep giving it back.” And what, I asked, was that “something” she wanted to give away? “The pain. The crazy,” she said. She said there was a little shrine, somewhere in the north of Brazil. The land was dry, the town impossibly poor, but people would travel for hundreds of miles to get there, to leave candles, gifts, and ex- voto offerings thanking the saint for answered prayers, for healing, for having rescued them from distress. “I bring you my worries. I bring you my tears. I bring you the dreams I have. I want to leave them here. I want to hang them on your wall and return home healed. But everything I give to you, you give back. You say, like you just said, ‘What is this “something” you want to give away?’ ” Years later I looked it up, the shrine. There were many like the one my Brazilian patient had described. One of them was a kind of cave or grotto, where pilgrims would leave little body parts carved from wood or wax: a foot, a breast, a head. From time to time the priest collected the wax objects and melted them down, making candles to be sold to other pilgrims. The walls and ceiling of the shrine were black with candle smoke and crowded with these suspended offerings. I think now that my Brazilian patient managed at least to give that away, the conjured image of a blackened shrine, hung with a jumble of body parts. I think that in the soul of each psychoanalyst such a place must exist, in spite of what we profess about our neutrality, our professional detachment. Perhaps something of what we receive can be melted down and sold back as candlelight— our costly illuminations— but other elements remain just as they appeared, the dreams nailed to the walls, the abandoned hearts and limbs, the soot of inextinguishable longing.”
DeSales Harrison, The Waters & The Wild

Donna Goddard
“It is a great honour to be human. Humans have the capacity to freely choose their destiny and, one day, they will all choose the right destiny.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer

“Before you examine the body of a patient,
Be patient to learn his story.
For once you learn his story,
You will also come to know
His body.

Before you diagnose any sickness,
Make sure there is no sickness in the mind or heart.
For the emotions in a man's moon or sun,
Can point to the sickness in
Any one of his other parts.

Before you treat a man with a condition,
Know that not all cures can heal all people.
For the chemistry that works on one patient,
May not work for the next,
Because even medicine has its own
Conditions.

Before asserting a prognosis on any patient,
Always be objective and never subjective.
For telling a man that he will win the treasure of life,
But then later discovering that he will lose,
Will harm him more than by telling him
That he may lose,
But then he wins.

“Most things I pen for you remain unheeded or unheard as they, like feathers, float in the wind to be lost forever at sea...”

“You know that thing
You do so well,
That little spark
You hide
In the dark,
That you think
Nobody
Knows
About

But
You?


Well,
Did you know
That
There's
A sheen
That you beam,
When you talk
Or do
Anything,
That everyone
Knows
About

But
You?


SOUL SHINE by Suzy Kassem
RISE UP AND SALUTE THE SUN, 2010”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“SONG OF THE STAR

I am nothing but oxygen and hydrogen,
A luminous sphere of plasma
Held together by helium and gravity,
And like a balloon I float on earth,
Waiting to be released back into the sky,
Waiting to go back in the reverse
Direction from which I came,
Traveling through a warm tunnel of light,
And out into a cold, dark abyss
Where I will explode into a thousand pieces.
I shall leave behind my body,
Just like air abandons the skin of a shattered balloon,
And the magnetic dust that carries my
Heart and spirit will lift us back
To congregate and shine
With the stars.
Home again,
In the fluorescent
Kingdom of the constellations,
I will once again be called by
My soul’s true name.
And my heart,
It will flicker again,
With every memory from its many
Lifetimes,
And with every wish
Made by a child.

“It is the light of love which connects us to others. We answer the call of love. It comes from God and touches our soul.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer

“Before now, it has never occurred to me that someone might pray for me. An odd sensation all the odder because I no longer know what a soul is. One would have thought after a lifetime of listening to them, treating them, peering into them, I would understand better. I have said it to student analysts under my supervision, and I have said it to myself: that everything Freud wrote was an attempt to accord the soul a rational form, a credible image. Did he succeed? Did anyone believe him? Did I? I no longer know. Is the soul one of those necessary fictions we cannot, in the end, do without? I have thought God to be such a fiction too, as surely you must have, Father. Sometimes it is impossible to believe what we believe. I should confess that I have been praying, I who believe nothing.”
DeSales Harrison, The Waters & The Wild

Mimi Novic
“On the preserved tablet of destiny we were each presented with the book of our life before we placed our footsteps on earth, sometimes in the dimly lit nights of this world, we can read what we promised our soul”
Mimi Novic, The Silence Between the Sighs

Flann O'Brien
“Who had uttered these words? They had not frightened me. They were clearly audible to me yet I knew the did not ring out across the air like the chilling cough of the old man in the chair,
They came from deep inside me, from my soul. Never before had I believed or suspected that I had a soul but just then I knew I had.”
Flann O'Brien, The Third Policeman

“I am your soul and all your souls. When I am gone you are dead. Past humanity is not only implicit in each new man born but is contained in him,[...] All humanity from its beginning to its end is already present but the beam has not yet played beyond you! [...] You are not the top of your people's line any more than your mother was when she had you inside her. When I leave you I take with me all that has made you what you are-I take all your significance and importance and all accumulation of human instinct and appetite and wisdom and dignity. You will be left with nothing behind you and nothing to give the waiting ones. Woe to you when they fund you out! Good Bye!”
Flann O'Brien, The Third Policeman

“The pure Soul is the One that Knows and Sees. The one that engages in attachment and abhorrence is the discharging relative self (pratishthit atma)!”
Dada Bhagwan

“I was born and raised in America. However, I am not red or blue. I am red, white and blue. Those are the same colors in my body (my heart, blood and veins). I am only human, and the human race is the only race in which I am an active participant - mind, body and soul.”

Kate McGahan
“I took one long last look at her before disappearing into the Rainbow Forest where another Master was calling me Home. “I love you Jack I love you Jack I love you Jack…” she kept saying, until I was far from her sight. To this day she still whispers, “I love you Jack,” even when she thinks I can't hear her anymore...but I can. Sometimes what seems to be the ending of something is just the beginning of everything.”
Kate McGahan, Jack McAfghan: Return from Rainbow Bridge

Kate McGahan
“When she looks at my photo she thinks she is looking at me but she knows that I am also looking at her. When she dreams of me she knows that I am dreaming of her too. People who can see things from other points of view can understand this better than most. We always go where we think your attention goes. We know you are looking into our eyes because that is where the power is, even in a photo. The eyes are where the eternal fire of the soul resides. So the next time you look at a photo of your best friend, put yourself in their shoes and see how beautiful you are!”
Kate McGahan, Jack McAfghan: Return from Rainbow Bridge

Kate McGahan
“You wonder why you can’t see me,
Sense me, feel me…?
When you are outpouring your emotion,
it is like me trying to climb up a waterfall
To get to you.
But if you are calm and have faith in me,
I can sail right over to you
On the still waters of your soul.”
Kate McGahan, Jack McAfghan: Return from Rainbow Bridge

Kate McGahan
“Don't you see? It’s all about God. You think it’s me that you love, but it’s really the God in me that you see. It’s the God in me that you love. It’s true. It’s why we love you too. It’s the God in you that looks at me and the God in me that looks back at you. It’s just the Big Bang God in love with Himself.”
Kate McGahan, Jack McAfghan: Return from Rainbow Bridge

Kate McGahan
“We meet in a place where time stands still. You recall where you were when the call came in. The vivid colors of the day. The season. The way the sun was streaming in or rain falling on the glass. That’s how you know it was your destiny. You can remember all the tiny details of your meeting. And you thought it wouldn’t matter.”
Kate McGahan, Jack McAfghan: Return from Rainbow Bridge

“In each of us is the spirit of an eagle, the heart of a dragon, and the soul of an angel.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“Be the type of person that leaves seeds of happiness in every other soul you encounter.”
Avina Celeste

Dada Bhagwan
“To See and Know the relative (vyavahaar), is verily known as the Self (Atma). The one that engages in attachment and abhorrence in the relative is not the Self.”
Dada Bhagwan
