Best Quotes about Spirituality
Without the spiritual world the material world is a disheartening enigma.
Our lives as we lead them as passed on to others, whether in physical or mental forms, tingeing all future lives together. This should be enough for one who lives for truth and service to his fellow passengers on the way.
What I am trying to do is to unmuddle the metaphysical.
Spiritual power begins by directing animal power to other than egoistic ends.
Not by might, or power, but by my spirit, says the Lord.
His spiritual life has been exaggerated by a chronic attack of mental gallstones.
Gogarty, Oliver St. John
Wherever you go, you will always bear yourself about with you, and so you will always find yourself.
I firmly believe that all human beings have access to extraordinary energies and powers. Judging from accounts of mystical experience, heightened creativity, or exceptional performance by athletes and artists, we harbor a greater life than we know. There we go beyond those limited and limiting patterns of body, emotions, volition, and understanding that have been keeping us in dry-dock. Instead we become available to our capacity for a larger life in body, mind, and spirit. In this state we know great torrents of delight.
Under all that we think, lives all we believe, like the ultimate veil of our spirits.
But the thing that I saw in your face no power can disinherit: No bomb that ever burst shatters the crystal spirit.
One truth stands firm. All that happens in world history rests on something spiritual. If the spiritual is strong, it creates world history. If it is weak, it suffers world history.
All spiritual disciplined are done with a view to still the mind. The perfectly still mind is universal spirit.
Return from existence to nonexistence. You are seeking the Lord and you belong to him. Nonexistence is a place of income; flee it not. This existence of more and less is a place of expenditure.
When you are already in Detroit, you don't have to take a bus to get there.
Don't you believe that there is in man a deep so profound as to be hidden even to him in whom it is?
Once spirit was God, then it became man, and now it is even becoming mob.
In the spiritual world there are no time divisions such as the past, present and future; for they have contracted themselves into a single moment of the present where life quivers in its true sense. The past and the future are both rolled up in this present moment of illumination, and this present moment is not something standing still with all its contents, for it ceaselessly moves on.
Suzuki, Daisetz T.
Whether we name divine presence synchronicity, serendipity, or graced moment matters little. What matters is the reality that our hearts have been understood. Nothing is as real as a healthy dose of magic which restores our spirits.
What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful that the garment with which it is clothed?
He who interrupts the course of his spiritual exercises and prayer is like a man who allows a bird to escape from his hand; he can hardly catch it again.
John of the Cross, St.
But those rare souls whose spirit gets magically into the hearts of men, leave behind them something more real and warmly personal than bodily presence, an ineffable and eternal thing. It is everlasting life touching us as something more than a vague, recondite concept. The sound of a great name dies like an echo; the splendor of fame fades into nothing; but the grace of a fine spirit pervades the places through which it has passed, like the haunting loveliness of mignonette.
No ghost was every seen by two pair of eyes.
Nothing is more repulsive than a furtively prurient spirituality; it is just as unsavory as gross sensuality.
All earthly delights are sweeter in expectation than in enjoyment; but all spiritual pleasures more in fruition than in expectation.
The foundations of a person are not in matter but in spirit.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
He is not the same, nor is he another.
Your treasure house is within; it contains all you'll ever need.
At the center of our being is a point of nothingness which is untouched by sin and by illusion, a point of pure truth, a point or spark which belongs entirely to God, which is never at our disposal, from which God disposes of our lives, which is inaccessible to the fantasies of our own mind or the brutalities of our own will.
The most spiritual human beings, assuming they are the most courageous, also experience by far the most painful tragedies: but it is precisely for this reason that they honor life, because it brings against them its most formidable weapons.
The adept may reach one of those rare moments that spell illumination -- aware of the light of the consciousness that illumines our consciousness as the sun dawns on the sleeping earth and bathes it in effulgence.
Khan, Pir Vilayat
O Krishna, the stillness of divine union which you describe is beyond my comprehension. How can the mind, which is so restless, attain lasting peace? Krishna, the mind is restless, turbulent, powerful, violent; trying to control it is like trying to tame the wind.
There is no easy formula for determining right and wrong livelihood, but it is essential to keep the question alive. To return the sense of dignity and honor to manhood, we have to stop pretending that we can make a living at something that is trivial or destructive and still have sense of legitimate self-worth. A society in which vocation and job are separated for most people gradually creates an economy that is often devoid of spirit, one that frequently fills our pocketbooks at the cost of emptying our souls.
Spiritual energy flows in and produces effects in the phenomenal world.
The possibility of stepping into a higher plane is quite real for everyone. It requires no force or effort or sacrifice. It involves little more than changing our ideas about what is normal.
In order to experience everyday spirituality, we need to remember that we are spiritual beings spending some time in a human body.
Angelis, Barbara De
As long as I can remember I feel I have had this great creative and spiritual force within me that is greater than faith, greater than ambition, greater than confidence, greater than determination, greater than vision. It is all these combined. My brain becomes magnetized with this dominating force which I hold in my hand.
The man is free to rule his world, not his world rule him.
When you examine the lives of the most influential people who have ever walked among us, you discover one thread that winds through them all. They have been aligned first with their spiritual nature and only then with their physical selves.
As I lived up to the highest light I had, higher and higher light came to me.
They understand but a little who understand only what can be explained.
Every spirit makes its house, but as afterwards the house confines the spirit, you had better build well.
Let the spirit of adventure set the tone.
Walking uplifts the spirit. Breathe out the poisons of tension, stress, and worry; breathe in the power of God. Send forth little silent prayers of goodwill toward those you meet. Walk with a sense of being a part of a vast universe. Consider the thousands of miles of earth beneath your feet; think of the limitless expanse of space above your head. Walk in awe, wonder, and humility. Walk at all times of day. In the early morning when the world is just waking up. Late at night under the stars. Along a busy city street at noontime.
Peterson, Wilferd A.
Transformation literally means going beyond your form.
The man or woman who concentrated on Things can hardly be trusted to use those things for the essential good of mankind. Only those who have guided the development of their spirit as well as their mind are really; qualified to use wisely the things that man's reason has enabled him to fashion out of nature's raw materials.
Fields, E. S.
Pilgrimage to the place of the wise is to find escape from the flame of separateness.
He whom God has touched will always be a being apart: he is, whatever he may do, a stranger among men; he is marked by a sign.
I'm aware that people I have loved and have died and are in the spirit world look after me.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Spirit is matter seen in a stronger light.
Jacks, L. P.
This latter day work is spiritual. It takes spirituality to comprehend it, to love it, to discern it. Therefore, seek the spirit in all you do. Keep it with you continually. That is our challenge.
Benson, Ezra Taft
