Welcome to the Fellowship of Isis: Rediscovering the Love and Compassion of the Goddess! The FOI is an international society founded in 1976 by Olivia, Lawrence and Pamela Durdin-Robertson. Societies include: the College of Isis, Spirals of the Adepti & Alchemy, Druid Clan of Dana, Noble Order of Tara & the Muses Symposium. The purpose of this blog is for sharing general FOI information, website updates and announcements sent directly from the central FOI Foundation Center in Ireland.
"When one surveys the condition of the
earth, threatened by global war, planetary pollution, the possibility of a
beautiful change dawning on earth seems remote! But the physical world is
created through the action of mind; and the mind is capable of fantastic change
when its environment is threatened...
"How can we as individuals co-operate with this great work? It is best, I
feel, for like-minded people to combine into meditation circles. No special
temple is needed: any room may be used in a friend's house. And for private
daily meditation, one can set aside even a corner of a room for one's spiritual
attunement with Divinity. And through this habitual focussing of awareness, inspiration will come.
Of course inspiration varies with each one of us: one may surprise oneself by
developing an unexpected talent. Instead of specializing in one particular form
of work or gift, one may discover pleasure in painting, writing, singing,
dancing and modelling clay: and one need not mind about a lack of proficiency!
"To evolve spiritually, it is essential to extend one's field of
awareness. Once inhibiting self-consciousness is cast aside, latent talents may
flower gloriously. As a growth of consciousness takes place, small groups join larger ones,
who tend to seek a beautiful area in which to live together. In such centres
humans live in harmony with animals, birds, trees and plants, with the spirit
of Nature Herself. A network of such centres may bring about a wonderful
transformation of our earth. For in the depth of each one of us is a longing to
live happily with all that springs from the source of Divine Life.
"Life does not limit itself to form or time or space. It is eternal,
ever-conscious, all-pervading. In unity with this, we realize the joy of
immortality, and are in harmony with all that is."
