Spirit, Spirituality & Spiritual Progression

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual & Metaphysical Quotes

From The Writings Of JJ Dewey

1.  “All forms of human endeavor are spiritual if it elevates the soul of man.”

2.  “The closest the average person comes to the higher spiritual sensation is the sexual climax.”

3.  “To make real progress in spiritual evolution one must be willing to accept change, even if his whole belief system is shattered.”

4.  “There is no way one can supply the exterior world with a measurement of spiritual progress.”

5.  “Often those who are making the greatest progress are seen as the greatest devils.”

6.  “If a person believes that he has already achieved the highest contact possible, he will not seek any further.”

7.  “If one truly desires a quantum leap in spiritual evolution for his brethren, let him set up an ensign and remember the ancient law that we become as that which we gaze upon, or that which draws our attention.”

8.  “As we climb the ladder of spiritual progress the number of entities who turn around in their progress lessens because as we move toward greater and greater light it becomes more obvious that it is indeed wisdom to continue forward.”

9.  “After we finish one long cycle of spiritual evolution then, after a period of rest, we will begin another with temptations anew and perils unlike any encountered before.”

10.  “We either go forward in spiritual evolution or we go backward. We never stand still. If we try and just stand still and ‘just be’ as many new agers teach then the person will go backwards on the path.”

11.  “Spiritual progression is directly proportional to a person’s understanding and acceptance of the principle of freedom; therefore, let us contemplate that principle and embrace the greater livingness.”

12.  “A change in direction, belief or thought process toward what seems to be the light does not indicate a leap in spiritual evolution.”

13.  “Gaining much knowledge does not indicate advance in spiritual evolution.”

14.  “Whenever anyone makes a step forward in spiritual evolution he has to earn that step by facing a temporary aloneness and spiritual blackout. If you continue to stumble through the darkness, no matter what, then the light will come back and completely dispel the darkness and the step forward will then become a reality.”

15.  “One who has felt what I call the New Jerusalem feeling will have a sense of oneness and brotherhood with others who have felt it, and those who have not yet had this baptism of fire, yet think they have, will never be able to adequately describe it.”

16.  “This spiritual fire is usually given to you as a witness to some truth that you are supposed to register and incorporate into your life or mission. It gives you a surety that you are headed in the right direction.”

17.  “In this age, the true baptism of fire is very rare and only comes through a high demonstration of faith.”

18.  “You are commanded to “try the spirits whether they are of God.” (1 John 4:1). Remember you are not commanded to ignore the spirits or claim they are from the devil, or to try and destroy them, but ‘try them’.”

19.  “The weakest link determines the power of the spiritual flow.”

20.  “The Molecular Relationship creates the vehicle for the Kingdom of God, but spiritual fusion creates the greater life.”

21.  “Whether it be symbolic marriage or real physical marriage a disciple is considered a virgin before God if he has no spiritual intercourse with false gods.”

22.  “The Beast robs the seeker of his spiritual virginity.”

23.  “Even though we attempt to follow the spiritual path we must still live in the real world and nurture a certain amount of plans and goals to take care of our needs as well as our loved ones.”

24.  “All your desires to tread the spiritual path will be clouded if an unrealized vow is hanging over your head.”

25.  “When a person who has had contact with the Spirit goes against what he has received and reverts back to the old ways and seeks to steady the ark of God in the hearts of others with black and white laws of stone, then such a one will be in danger of being burned by the spiritual fire and can actually physically self destruct.”

26.  “Let me give you and others who receive a spiritual contact a word of warning. The power to hold this contact must be earned and not taken for granted. Approximately three days after a higher contact, the seeker usually undergoes a mini dark night. The void can be so great that he will be tempted to forget, discount or disbelieve his contact. The disciple must make a mental commitment to hold steady in the light and hold the memory of the Presence. This focus will take you through the dark night and eventually toward higher more permanent contact.”

27.  “The subtle authority that controls man and places a veil of illusion between him and the truth must be understood before a group can take the next great step in spiritual evolution.”

28.  “Spiritual oneness encompasses the oneness of the mind and emotions.”

29.  “Before illusion is overcome a person may experience quite a few spiritual contacts through the soul, but the door has yet to be opened completely. But when illusion is unraveled the door swings open wide and a world of vision and new opportunities are revealed.”

30.  “It is fine to enter into the world of soul and then return and be ‘in the world,’ but when the consciousness settles down in this reality, we tend to get spiritual amnesia and lose sight of the soul.”

31.  “Every great step forward is taken in the midst of a point of tension.”

32.  “Progression on an individual basis will only take us so far. The next step is progression as a group of individuals with soul contact.”

33.  “When a person first experiences the spiritual fire he will usually have an initial endowment of power that will have a residual effect for about three days.”

34.  “Lack of progression is something that I have observed in {both} extremes of thought. The literal Bible believer cannot get past his outward authority riveting him into his mindset and the “all is within” person will not take an objective look at reality as it is.”

35.  “Once the male and, or female relationship is in balance then higher non-sexual sharing on a spiritual level can create the next great step in our human evolution.”

36.  “Many in the East and West need to shift the focus of their meditation technique from formlessness to form if they want to make maximum progress.”

37.  “There are those who have prayed regularly all their lives, and made sure others did too, yet the closest they have reached to the soul was the solar plexus emotion.”

38.  “One of the main purposes of soul contact is to reveal to us the next steps in our progression.”

39.  “Time after time the work of disciples fall short of the goal, and mankind does not progress as hoped for. In such circumstances even the Great Ones have to accept what is and move the Plan forward the best they can.”

40.  “An advanced disciple or master incarnate will never reveal his point in evolution publicly.”

41.  “If we follow the highest we know and move ahead to the best of our ability we will indeed make many mistakes, but the pure in heart will discover their mistakes and correct them.”

42.  “The lesser evolved shove to be first. The more advanced push forward without thought of first or last but for the pure joy of service, benefiting the whole and moving ahead to the new plateau of realization.”

43.  “The fact that you’re even seeking indicates that you are at least aspiring to something higher. Either you’re just looking or you’re committed to the purpose of your inner soul. You probably feel inside which category you’re in.”

44.  “The key to progression is always harmlessness.”

45.  “If our desire to be an island of independence separates us from reality then our progression will come to a standstill.”

  1. Extraordinary …..reading your page was illuminating ….. although I found that number 34 stood out ….. each of your quotes has a melodic ring …..
    at such a high verberation ….. the words resonated …..encompassing me ….. embrassing and warm …..
    Thank you for writing my thoughts ….. sometimes I feel quite alone ….. although I do find others who are in progression ….. they seem sometimes
    few and far between …..

    I have gone my whole life with the thought of mankind ….. one day ….. taking each other by the hand and stepping forward together ….. no more abuses …..
    no more hate ….. no more harm …..

    I dream of the day ….. when we all realize ….. Thank you again for expressing your heart ….. Sincerely, Wendy
