The power of softness and openness, as opposed to harshness and being closed-minded

The power of softness and openness, as opposed to harshness and being closed-minded, is the driving force behind the principle of meaningful dialogue.  The late physicist David Bohm, a founder of MIT’s Dialogue Project, says that the word dialogue derives from dia (through) and logos (the word).  Thus dialogue describes a process of meaning flowing through and around the participants.     -Messenger ECP with Spadaro:  Alchemy of the Heart, 2000, p. 155

Better is he who gathers small knowledge and applies it than he who gathers much without application….the accent in human affairs has been on the human consciousness which, oddly enough, has expected and thus realized a sense of struggle….(The fact that men do not see these human) desires for what they are–the mirage of duality–does not prevent them from being used to oppose the manifestation of the light within their consciousness….Desire need not be suppressed but tethered by a higher vision to a higher goal.  Men must learn the glorious system of reactivating the fires of their being and redirecting them Godward….

Be patient, understand the need to strive not with a sense of struggle but with the sense of yielding to the great cosmic pressures of the inner light of true knowledge.   -Kuthumi:  Pearls of Wisdom 13:45

That inner voice can come to us as direction from our Higher Self or a signal from our soul.  It can be the nudge of an angel or the message of a master.  But if we constantly surround ourselves with noise–whether it is music or TV or phone conversations–we may be drowning out the valuable voices of the Spirit that tend our souls.    -Messenger ECP with Spadaro:  Art of Practical Spirituality, 2000, pp. 26-7
