I am going to be blogging dailly, mostly reposting the wonderful poetry, quotes and book excerpts that have been posted on the Allspirit group over the last fifteen years. I am also working on updating the site, and it is taking some time as there are now over 700 pages.

Words That Motivate
For those of you who enjoy quotations, I have begun a new website, wordsthatmotivate.com .
I post daily inspirational and motivational picture quotes. There is also an associated facebook page which you are invited to like.
The latest additions to Allspirit can be found on the What's new? page. If you are looking for more from a particular path or author, I encourage you to join the Allspirit yahoogroup and join in the discussion there.
Sacred Texts from various traditions, including the Gospel of Thomas, Bhagavad Gita, Hsin Hsin Ming, Tao Te Ching and several Buddhist Sutras can be found on the Sacred Texts page. Writings from contemporary mystics are listed on the Spiritual Writings page.
Check the poetry index for a list of poets, who include Rumi, Hafiz, Rabindranath Tagore, William Blake, Rainer Maria Rilke, Thich Nhat Hanh and Anna Akhmatova. There are also some contemporary poets, including Hydeh Aubon, Elaine Upton, Nirmala, Steve Toth, Yosy Flug and Silent Lotus.
In the morning when you get up generate a heartfelt intention to be in accord with bodhicitta. In the evening when going to bed, investigate whether what you did was in accord with or in opposition to bodhicitta.
