Angels Among Us:
A Collection of Quotations

color bar

Whether or not one believes in angels, there are a lot of them around during the holiday season--whether their images are decorating store windows or hanging from a tree, in Christmas carols on the radio and on the street corner

One of the nicer things about angels is that belief in them transcends the boundaries of formal religion. The quotations below include ones from the Old Testament, the Koran, from Christian ministers, Romantic poets, and New Age teachers.

Most of these quotes are about angels. At the end I've included some quotations from the angels who have communicated to the founders of the Findhorn community in Scotland. Findhorn is an ongoing experiment of cooperation between human, deva, and angelic energies. If you're not familiar with its story, please see www.findhorn.org

The quotations by angels tell us something very important. Whether we believe in angels or not, they believe in us.

Quotes from the Angels and Devas of Findhorn

color bar

Tune into nature until you feel the love flow. That feeling is your arrow into the angelic world. Always it is your state of being that the nature world responds to--not what you say, not what you do, but what you are. --The Devas

color bar

On a rainy day you can appreciate the good in the weather and act in a way that is appropriate ot it. Always look for and find the unique flavor of each moment and each place you find yourself in , not wishing for something different. You would be amazed if you could see what a difference this makes in the life forces. Each moment has its own beauty, but it can be nullified if you resist the flow and put yourself out of harmony with it. To go with the natural rhythms is far more important than you realize. Inspiration comes on all levels when you are relaxed in the flow of life.--Landscape Angel

God is love. As creation becomes more conscious, it expresses greater love. The essence of life, no matter what its level of consciousness, is love. Life becomes more perfectly itself when surrounded by love. This is true of all realms of being. Humanity's greatest contribution to life on the planet is to love consciously and so to bring more health, vigor, and beauty to life.-- Landscape Angel

Nothing is worth doing unless it is done with joy in any action, motives other than love and joy spoil the results. Could you imagine a flower growing as a duty and then sweetening the hearts of its beholders?--Deva of the Fruit Trees
