Transpersonal Quotes

STANISLAV GROF

“Direct spiritual experiences appear in two different forms. The first of these, the experience of the immanent Divine, involves subtly, but profoundly transformed perception of the everyday reality. A person having this form of spiritual experience sees people, animals, and inanimate objects in the environment as radiant manifestations of a unified field of cosmic creative energy and realizes that the boundaries between them are illusory and unreal. This is a direct experience of nature as God. Much of the old perception of the world remains in place, but is radically redefined by the addition of a new dimension.
The second form of spiritual experience, that of the transcendental Divine, involve manifestations of archetypal beings and realms of reality that are ordinarily transphenomenal, meaning unavailable to perception in the everyday state of consciousness. In this type of spiritual experience, entirely new elements seem to unfold or explicate, to borrow a term from physicist David Bohm, from another level or order or reality.
For many people, the first encounter with the sacred dimension of existence often occurs in the context of the death-rebirth process, when the experience of different stages of birth are accompanied by visions and scenes from the archetypal domain of the collective unconscious.”

ANN SHULGIN

“The human psyche has its own private and personal schedule for growth, and will take important steps in its own way and in its own time. The therapist is there to help the process, to devote himself, heart, soul, and insight, to guiding and supporting the hard work his client is doing.
What the therapist should remember is that the client’s psyche contains a part that is a self-healer, and that it is a component of what might be called, for lack of a better term, his higher self. I prefer to call it the overseer. He should tell the client of the existence of that healer within, because by doing so, he will help activate it.”

MICHAEL MURPHY
