Imelda Octavia Shanklin

Imelda Octavia Shanklin 1865 – 1953 Imelda Octavia Shanklin served at Unity School from about 1910 until 1930. She was ordained as a Unity Church minister in 1918. Her metaphysical activities embraced lectures, class work, and contributions to magazines and other publications. Some of her Unity published writings include the following: “Selected Studies,” 1921, later translated as “All Things Made New” in “Key to Life Bookshelf,” 1926. “The Sayings of Jesus Christ,” 1923. “Treasure Box,” 1927 and “What Are You”, 1929. While at Unity, she was editor-in-chief and also editor of “Wee Wisdom” from 1922 until 1930, at which time she left Unity to devote her time for several years to the preparation of a metaphysical study called “The Cosmic Adventure.” This is an analytical study of the Bible, of which one commentator said the “conception of the Dweller, the soul, and the Adventure is both clear and illuminating, adding something important to the understanding of the symbology of the Bible.” Her last oral teachings were given in connection with Unity work in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Quotes ~ Prayer is not in posture; it is not in a given form of phrases. Prayer is a relationship between you and God. When you rule your mind you rule your world. When you choose your thoughts you choose results. Your thoughts are the tools with which you carve […]

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj 1897 – 1981 When asked about his biographical details, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj used to say “I was never born”, for he does not identify himself with his body. He identified himself only with the eternal and pure beingness. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj was born in March 1897, on the day the birthday of Lord Hanuman. In honor of Lord Hanuman, he was given the name ‘Maruti’. Nisargadatta’s father, Shivrampant, worked as a domestic servant in Mumbai and later as a petty farmer in Kandalgaon, a small village in the back-woods of Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra. Mariti’s family followed the traditional Hindu culture. At the tender age of 18, in the year 1915, Maruti’s father passed away. After the death of his father, Maruti followed his oldest brother to Bombay. Through realizing the shortcomings of a totally unworldly life and the greater spiritual fruitfulness of dispassionate action, he eventually returned to his family in Mumbai in 1938, where he spent the rest of his life. The publication in 1973 of I Am That, an English translation of his talks in Marathi by Maurice Frydman, brought him worldwide recognition and followers, especially from North America and Europe. www.nisargadatta.org Books: “I Am That”, “Prior to Consciousness” Quotes ~ When you demand nothing of the world, nor of God, when you want nothing, seek noting, expect nothing, then […]

He spoke of God in intimate terms as though he knew God very well, which he did. Joseph Murphy, a writer and lecturer, who studied with Neville in New York City, said of him: “Neville may eventually be recognized as one of the world’s great mystics,” Born on Barbados in the British West Indies, Neville was the fourth child in a family of nine boys and one girl. One day somInterpre of them were playing near an old wind-swept hut by the sea. A seer lived in the hut and told them their fortunes, The older sons would go into the professions, into medicine, into business. The predictions for them came true. The Goddard family is one of the most prominent and influential families on the island. www.neville-goddard.net. Can read excerpts online. Books:  See website above of complete listing. Quotes ~ Nothing comes from without; all things come from within – from the subconscious. Man moves in a world that is nothing more or less than his consciousness objectified. “I will be” is a confession […]
