For Calvin, the creation reflects its Creator at every point. Image after images flashed in front of our eyes, as Calvin attempts to convey the multiplicity of ways in which the creation witnesses to its Creator: it is like a visible garment, which the invisible God dons in order to make himself known; it is like a book in which the name on the Creator is written as its author; it is like a theater, in which the glory of God is publicly displayed; it is like a mirror, in which the works and wisdom of God are reflected.Alister E. McGrath Wisdom Images Sayings By Alister E. McGrath: For Calvin, the creation reflects its Creator at every point. Image after images flashed in
It's hardly wisdom, but the older I get the more I believe that our lives are built not out of time, but light. The problem is that the images that so often return to me are seldom those I want.Colum McCann Wisdom Images Sayings By Colum McCann: It's hardly wisdom, but the older I get the more I believe that our lives
In an old song the Mother sings: 'My sleeping is my dreaming, my dreaming is my thinking, my thinking is my wisdom.' She is the bed we are born in, in which we sleep and dream, where we are healed, love and die. In her wisdom we remember day's broken images and carry them down into dreams where their motions roll into shadows and root, growing into stories.Meinrad Craighead Wisdom Images Sayings By Meinrad Craighead: In an old song the Mother sings: 'My sleeping is my dreaming, my dreaming is
Wisdom and Spirit of the universe! Thou soul, that art the eternity of thought, And giv'st to forms and images a breath And everlasting motion.William Wordsworth Wisdom Images Sayings By William Wordsworth: Wisdom and Spirit of the universe! Thou soul, that art the eternity of thought, And
It is a perverse tradition we honor. Kings adorn their halls with images of battles they won, the people they've conquered." He paced as he vented, a lifetime frustration pent up in that twisted truth. "I have brought kingdoms on the brink of war to peace, and my deeds will never be deemed as heroic as those who kill." - Paris of Troy.Aria Cunningham Wisdom Images Sayings By Aria Cunningham: It is a perverse tradition we honor. Kings adorn their halls with images of battles
The law itself exhibits justice and teaches wisdom by abstinence from sensible images and by calling out to the Maker and Father of the universe.Clement Of Alexandria Wisdom Images Sayings By Clement Of Alexandria: The law itself exhibits justice and teaches wisdom by abstinence from sensible images and by
There is a thinking in primordial images, in symbols which are older than the historical man, which are inborn in him from the earliest times, eternally living, outlasting all generations, still make up the groundwork of the human psyche. It is only possible to live the fullest life when we are in harmony with these symbols; wisdom is a return to them.C. G. Jung Wisdom Images Sayings By C. G. Jung: There is a thinking in primordial images, in symbols which are older than the historical
The great wheel of fire of ancient wisdom, silence and word engendering the myth of the origin, human action engendering the epic voyage toward the other; historical violence revealing the tragic flaw of the hero who must then return to the land of origin; myth of death and renewal and silence from which new words and images will arise, keeps on turning in spite of the blindness of purely lineal thought.Carlos Fuentes Wisdom Images Sayings By Carlos Fuentes: The great wheel of fire of ancient wisdom, silence and word engendering the myth of
It's simple, it's not that simple; or life is simple, but the things in it are not. When a man does not understand it, he tends to inflate it. When he does, he tends to deflate it. In the end, neither images are fully accurate.Criss Jami Wisdom Images Sayings By Criss Jami: It's simple, it's not that simple; or life is simple, but the things in it
To leave the comforts of home, the mother world, one must have some place to go. Admittedly, the rites of passage of traditional cultures were to initiate the youth into a simpler society, a more homogenous culture than ours. As well, their interest lay not in the individuation of the person but in the integration of the unformed person into the collective definition of tribal masculinity. Still, take away such psychically charged images of identity, take away the wisdom of the elders, take away the community of men, and one has the modern world.James Hollis Wisdom Images Sayings By James Hollis: To leave the comforts of home, the mother world, one must have some place to
The simplest and the most incredible thing in the world had come true again: two people speaking to each other, each for himself; and sounds, called words, shaped the same images and feelings in that palpitating mass behind the skull, and out of meaningless vibrations of the vocal chords and their unexplainable reactions in the viscous gray convolutions, skies suddenly grew again in which were mirrored clouds, brooks, past times, growth and decay and hard-won wisdom.Erich Maria Remarque Wisdom Images Sayings By Erich Maria Remarque: The simplest and the most incredible thing in the world had come true again: two
Desire I think has less to do with possession than with participation, the will to involve oneself in the body of the world, in the principle of things expressing itself in splendid specificity, a handful of images: a lover's irreplaceable body, the roil and shimmer of the sea overshot with sunlight, a handful of cherries, the texture and weight of a word. The word that seems most apt is partake ... We can say we partake of something but we may just as accurately say we take part in something' we are implicated in another being, which is always the beginning of wisdom, isn't it- that involvement which enlarges us, which engages the heart, which takes out of the routine limitations of self?Mark Doty Wisdom Images Sayings By Mark Doty: Desire I think has less to do with possession than with participation, the will to
It's hurtful somehow to admit this thing and anyway that doesn't mean i'm losing my faith in this beautiful world. But these days now is the time where people have become so much more-excuse me-shallow. When all of the fancy things and outer beauty are demanded, and those who are lost enough to chase and manage to get those things, they will happen to get very nice response from social and able to expand their images and get famous and be seen as someone who has value. Meanwhile those who could see deeper and their souls are insecure of this mad world, they will have smaller space in width but they will dig deeper and deeper into their self, making space in height, finding the true meaning of their souls, the true essential unshakable truth that's beyond the fragile material worldly things.Reza Rusandi Wisdom Images Sayings By Reza Rusandi: It's hurtful somehow to admit this thing and anyway that doesn't mean i'm losing my
A diminished self-image causes us to slouch, to avoid looking others in the eye, to be unassertive, to be indecisive. On the other hand, a healthy self-image causes us to carry ourselves well, to speak confidently and to portray dignity. If we have not taken the time and thought to create a wonderful self-image for ourselves, we have had less, been less, and done less than was possible for us than if we had. We can improve our self-images at any moment including this one.Wu Wei Wisdom Images Sayings By Wu Wei: A diminished self-image causes us to slouch, to avoid looking others in the eye, to
Home is to be a safe place, a refuge for all who enter, a protection from the harm and storms of the world. Yet often or even daily we open our doors
usually via television or the internet
to ideas and images that can damage our faith, abuse our hearts and minds, sear our psyches, and tear apart our peace. Home should be a place where, behind its doors, one should expect to find protection and safety from all the harms of life, including voices that do not speak truth or wisdom. Only the foolish would invite just anyone to enter the door of their home.
Sally Clarkson Wisdom Images Sayings By Sally Clarkson: Home is to be a safe place, a refuge for all who enter, a protection
By associating votive offerings with sacred images, the Catholic Church, it its wisdom, had left its formerly pagan flock a legitimate outlet for the inveterate impulse to associate oneself, or one's own effigy, with the Divine as expressed in the palpable form of the human image.Aby Warburg Wisdom Images Sayings By Aby Warburg: By associating votive offerings with sacred images, the Catholic Church, it its wisdom, had left
The fools of this world prefer to look for sages far away. They don't believe that the wisdom of their own mind is the sage ... the sutras say, "Mind is the teaching." But people of no understanding don't believe in their own mind or that by understanding this teaching they can become a sage. They prefer to look for distant knowledge and long for things in space, buddha-images, light, incense, and colors. They fall prey to falsehood and lose their minds to insanity.Bodhidharma Wisdom Images Sayings By Bodhidharma: The fools of this world prefer to look for sages far away. They don't believe
We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.Alan W. Watts Wisdom Images Sayings By Alan W. Watts: We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually
It is a very strange thing to see so many images in the world around us ... we don't realise it, but we are all impressionable beings, able to pick up off of the images that bombard us on a daily basis. We are created and moulded by images and impressions. One of the most difficult tasks in life, is to keep a steady impression of something in your sight, and to believe in it until it becomes you. Because there is just so much temptation/opportunity, to become something else.C. JoyBell C. Wisdom Images Sayings By C. JoyBell C.: It is a very strange thing to see so many images in the world around
Let Go of Your Worries Let go of your worries and be completely clear-hearted, like the face of a mirror that contains no images. If you want a clear mirror, behold yourself and see the shameless truth, which the mirror reflects. If metal can be polished to a mirror-like finish, what polishing might the mirror of the heart require? Between the mirror and the heart is this single difference: the heart conceals secrets, while the mirror does not.Rumi Wisdom Images Sayings By Rumi: Let Go of Your Worries Let go of your worries and be completely clear-hearted, like
Only when all images of Earth are hushed and the clamor of the senses be stilled, and the soul has passed beyond thought of self, can the eternal wisdom be revealed to the mystic who seeks that highest communion with the unseen.Margaret Smith Wisdom Images Sayings By Margaret Smith: Only when all images of Earth are hushed and the clamor of the senses be
Our spiritual traditions have carried virtues across time. They are tools for the art of living. They are pieces of intelligence about human behavior that neuroscience is now exploring with new words and images: what we practice, we become. What's true of playing the piano or throwing a ball also holds for our capacity to move through the world mindlessly and destructively or generously and gracefully. I've come to think of virtues and rituals as spiritual technologies for being our best selves in flesh and blood, time and space. There are superstar virtues that come most readily to mind and can be the work of a day or a lifetime - love, compassion, forgiveness. And there are gentle shifts of mind and habit that make those possible, working patiently through the raw materials of our lives.Krista Tippett Wisdom Images Sayings By Krista Tippett: Our spiritual traditions have carried virtues across time. They are tools for the art of
All the images of carnival are dualistic; they unite within themselves both poles of change and crisis: birth and death (the image of pregnant death), blessing and curse (benedictory carnival curses which call simultaneously for death and rebirth), praise and abuse, youth and old age, top and bottom, face and backside, stupidity and wisdom.Mikhail Bakhtin Wisdom Images Sayings By Mikhail Bakhtin: All the images of carnival are dualistic; they unite within themselves both poles of change
In their purest form myths, not unlike tragedy, are perhaps the most important moment in the troubled history of Mexican civilization. The cement of dreams, the architecture of language, made of images and rhythms which respond to and harmonize with each other through time and space, their wisdom is not of that which can be measured on the scale of the everyday. They are concurrently religion, ritual, belief, phantasmagoria, and the primary affirmation of a human coherence, the coagulating strength of language against the anguish of death and the certainty of nothingness. Myths express life, despite the promise of destruction, of the weight of the inevitable. They are without any doubt the most durable monuments of men, in America as in the ancient world.Jean-Marie G. Le Clezio Wisdom Images Sayings By Jean-Marie G. Le Clezio: In their purest form myths, not unlike tragedy, are perhaps the most important moment in
For modern people the pursuit of wisdom sounds like something you'd have to travel to Tibet for. To us, wisdom is mystical and esoteric. It conjures up images of cave-dwelling hermits, saffron-robed monks, and, well, Yoda.J. Mark Bertrand Wisdom Images Sayings By J. Mark Bertrand: For modern people the pursuit of wisdom sounds like something you'd have to travel to
