* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Spiritual qoutes
« on: December 16, 2012, 01:49:17 pm »
So I'm not sure if this belongs here, you can move it if i'm wrong though.:ashamed:
So I just thought I would start up a topic about spiritual quotes from movies, famous people/patrons and etc.

One of my personal favourites is: "The strength is inside of you, trust it.. your sacred animals will be your guide" -Dulcea from Mighty morphing power rangers movie.
I love this quote because it is like an animistic quote saying to trust your innermost guide which mine is a cat, Bast. The Egyptian goddess.

So i'm curious to know what your favourite spiritual quotes are and why?:)

Hm.. it's hard to pick only ine, but I would say this one: "We don't know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice we have left"
It was a quote my grandmother told me when I was going through hard times of my life.

Heard one this morning that I really liked, from over at Reddit:

"Science explains the universe, but gods give it character."

And also this one, from Marcus Aurelius:

"Nowhere can a person find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in their own soul."
dum spiro, spero

I have text file of quotes.  Most of them I like because they describe a great truth:

There are trivial truths and there are great truths.  The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false.  The opposite of a great truth is also true.
--Neils Bohr

Others because they express ideas better than I would have been able to:

The knowable world is incomplete if seen from any one point of view,
incoherent if seen from all points of view at once,
and empty if seen from nowhere in particular.
-- Richard Shweder

And some as reminders to myself:

I find it important to honor the Gods as mysteries, and to admit that I don't understand everything.
-- Nehet from TC
There is no inherent meaning to life.  Stop looking and give your life meaning.

This is a qoute from G.I.Jane. It is called self-pity by D.H.Lawrence.

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A bird will fall frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.

The mystics (of various religions and paths) are awesome.

To be is a blessing. To live is holy.
- Rabbi Abraham Heschel

To have courage for whatever comes in life - everything lies in that.
- Teresa of Avila

O Beloved, there is no room left in my heart
For anything but You!

- Hafiz (Sufi Master)

In the evening of life, we will be judged on love alone.
- John of the Cross

He who interrupts the course of his spiritual exercises and prayer is like a man who allows a bird to escape from his hand; he can hardly catch it again.
- John of the Cross

He goes because he must, as Galahad went towards the Grail: knowing that for those who can live it, this alone is life.
- Evelyn Underhill

Every word, every image used for God is a distortion more than a description.
- Anthony de Mello

All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.
- Julian of Norwich

The force that drives the water through rocks
Drives my red blood.

- Dylan Thomas
"We're all stories, in the end. Make it a good one, eh?"
- Doctor Who

I'm not sure if this has any spriritual significance but it has always plucked a deep chord in my psyche.

Here is one attributed to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin:

"We are not human beings having spiritual experiences, we are spiritual beings having human experiences."

This quote strikes me as being incredibly profound in such a simple way. It really resonates with me.
