Welcome To The Religion Network!
I'm Lisa Bowman. The Religion Network is an interfaith web site providing inspiration, quotes and religious resources. This Home Page is changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You are warmly
invited to read every quote posted for each theme, or simply to read those that interest you. They are
offered in the belief that inspiration can be found in all spiritual faiths, and that finding the commonality
in religions is more important than pointing up the differences. Religion is precious gift that blesses the
individual and uplifts the community. However you worship, I hope this site enhances your journey. Let
us meet regularly and build a spiritual network. If you'd like to know my story, click on biography.




But Jesus answered them, saying, "The hour has come that the
Son of Man should be glorified. Most assuredly, I say to you,
unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains
alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. He who loves his
life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world
will keep it for eternal life.
"

John 12: 23-25
The Holy Bible
New King James Version


_______


Consider, in good time, that you have something more divine in you
than the mechanism of passion, than the strings and tackle of a puppet.


Marcus Aurelius (121-180)
Roman emperor; Stoic philosopher


___________


As the deer longs for brooks of water, so my soul longs
for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God...

Psalm 42: 2-3
The Stone Edition Tanach




"Verily, verily, I say unto you,
He that believeth on me, the works that I do
shall he do also; and greater works than these
shall he do; because I go unto my Father."

John 14: 12
The Holy Bible
New King James Version


__________

When you surrender all the desires that come to the heart
and by the grace of God find the joy of God, then
your soul has indeed found peace.


Bhagavad Gita
Written in the 1st or 2nd century


________


The greatest of all duties is to remember God.

Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952)
Hindu yogi and guru






Some would like to be like the sun, aloof
from this world. Whatever material matters
they accomplish during their stay occur as
if by chance, with no real involvement
of their own.

Others become entirely wrapped up in all the
fetters and chains of life. They suffer its
scars and bruises, delight in its offerings,
thirst for its rewards and tremble at its pain.

True tzaddikim emulate their Creator.
To them, every detail of life has meaning
and purpose -- every step is a decision,
every move is deliberate. And yet,
they remain above it all.

What is their secret?
They remember they are not the body,
but the soul.


Wisdom of the Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902-1994)
Prominent Hasidic rabbi

The greatest of faults, I should say,
