#1. There exits within the ecclesia and among its citizens a phenomena I refer to as 'Spiritual Correctness'. Essentially it says: 'Don't say anything that could offend anyone, focus on what is right with the 'church' and its leadership, don't be critical, speak the truth in 'love', promote the status quo, don't make 'waves', don't call anyone 'out', respect 'authority', don't expose 'wrong-doing', cover those who 'spiritually abuse' others, keep it 'secret' within our family; don't ask any hard questions. Sounds exactly like the textbook definition of a highly dysfunctional family system. The only 'system' and its enablers that Jesus spoke out against vehemently was the religious system of His day and its leadership."

Spiritual Correctness quotes by R. Alan Woods
#2. Music is a spiritual expression of what's in your heart. Music as a way of getting rich is a pretty new thing, and I often wonder if the mega-bucks glitzy atmosphere is making the quality of music suffer. You have to work really hard to get around that and remember why you're in it in the first place: because you have to be. It's like an addiction. You can't go a day without picking up your guitar. To me, the only commercial goals that are really valid are, 'Boy, I wish I didn't have to go to work. I wish I could do this all the time.' - Author: Trey Anastasio
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Trey Anastasio
#3. It's always best to feel fulfilled first, before finding a man. Then you'll know the value of yourself, and you'll hold the key to your own happiness. So you won't turn into a vulnerable, needy, emotional mess the minute you fall in love. - Author: Menna Van Praag
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Menna Van Praag
#4. As I read the Qur'an and prayed the Islamic prayers, a door to my heart was unsealed and I was immersed in an overwhelming tenderness. - Author: Jeffrey Lang
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Jeffrey Lang
#5. The Universal Consciousness's feeling is unqualified love for all of its creatures,no matter how foolish and desperate they act. - Author: David V. Gaggin
Spiritual Correctness quotes by David V. Gaggin
#6. All men who live only according to their five senses, and seek nothing beyond the gratification of their natural appetites for pleasure and reputation and power, cut themselves off from that charity which is the principle of all spiritual vitality and happiness because it alone saves us from the barren wilderness of our own abominable selfishness. - Author: Thomas Merton
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Thomas Merton
#7. They were like an overconstructed novel, each representative of some cul-de-sac of idiolect and stereotype, missing only a handicapped person – No! At Berkeley we say handi capable person – and a Jew and a Hispanic, and an Asian not of the subcontinent, Louis always said. He had once placed a personals ad on Craigslist to recruit for those positions: Diverse social club seeking to make quota requires the services of East Asian, Jew, Hispanic, and handicapable individuals to round out Multicultural Brady Bunch Troupe. All applicants must be visibly identifiable as members of said group. Reformed Jews and ADHDers need not apply. - Author: T. Geronimo Johnson
Spiritual Correctness quotes by T. Geronimo Johnson
#8. The spiritual leader will not procrastinate when faced with a decision, nor vacillate after making it. A sincere but faulty decision is better than weak-willed "trial balloons" or indecisive overtures. To postpone decision is really to decide for the status quo. In most decisions the key element is not so much knowing what to do but in living with the results. - Author: J. Oswald Sanders
Spiritual Correctness quotes by J. Oswald Sanders
#9. I have faith that God will care for me, and God does provide my needs. I don't in any way feel insecure because I don't know where I will sleep at night, where or when I will eat next. When you have spiritual security, you have no more feeling of need for material security. - Author: Peace Pilgrim
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Peace Pilgrim
#10. Feel the feeling as though the prayer has already been answered, and in that feeling we are speaking to the Forces of Creation, allowing the world to respond to us. - Author: Gregg Braden
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Gregg Braden

Spiritual Correctness quotes by Soman Gouda
#12. I was a spiritual kid. - Author: Kristin Chenoweth
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Kristin Chenoweth
#13. It was under a solemn consciousness of the dangers from ecclesiastical ambition, the bigotry of spiritual pride, and the intolerance of sects ... that is was deemed advisable to exclude from the national government all power to act upon the subject. - Author: Joseph Story
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Joseph Story
#14. God then makes people whom he puts right in the middle of all this loaded creation. Commanding them to care for creation, to manage it, to lovingly use it, to creatively order it ... They are environmentalists. Being deeply connected with their environment is who they are. For them to be anything else or to deny their divine responsibility to care for all that God has made would be to deny something that is at the core of their existence. This is why litter and pollution are spiritual issues. - Author: Rob Bell
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Rob Bell
#15. The soul, like the body, lives by what it feeds on. - Author: Josiah Gilbert Holland
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Josiah Gilbert Holland
#16. Man is a musical being. His origin is in the spoken Word. By sound was he sustained and by music he evolved. One day he will recognize music as a vital factor in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual evolution of the whole human race. - Author: Corinne Heline
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Corinne Heline
#17. The Soul's [our true self's] natural form is the absolute supreme Self [Parmatma]. It does not show you 'wrong [doing]', nor does it show 'right [doing]'. When demerit karma effect is unfolding, then one will see the 'wrong' and when merit karma is unfolding, it will show 'right'. The Soul is not the 'doer' in any of this; it continues to 'See' only the vibrations! - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#18. New York is a meeting place for every race in the world, but the Chinese, Armenians, Russians, and Germans remain foreigners. So does everyone except the blacks. There is no doubt but that the blacks exercise great influence in North America, and, no matter what anyone says, they are the most delicate, spiritual element in that world. - Author: Federico Garcia Lorca
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Federico Garcia Lorca
#19. God will fill the hungry because He Himself has stirred up the hunger. As in the case of prayer, when God prepares the heart to pray, He prepares His ear to hear (Ps. 10:17). So in the case of spiritual hunger, when God prepares the heart to hunger, He will prepare His hand to fill. - Author: Thomas Watson
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Thomas Watson
#20. War is a seed of bigger war, but Peace is the seed of God. - Author: Iisakki Totuudentalo
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Iisakki Totuudentalo
#21. When every young man refuses to go to war, you will have peace. You do not defend any idea with violence. - Author: Jane Roberts
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Jane Roberts
#22. Sometimes that which you have never lost is the hardest to find. - Author: Iva Kenaz
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Iva Kenaz
#23. First we have to step out of our dream of separation, the insularity with which we have imprisoned ourselves, and acknowledge that we are a part of a multidimensional living spiritual being we call the world. The world is much more than just the physical world we perceive through the senses, just as we are much more than just our own physical bodies. Only as a part of a living whole can we help to heal the whole. Just as we need to work together with the outer ecosystem, we need to work together with the inner worlds. We need their support and help, their power and knowledge. The devas understand the patterns of climate change better than we do, because they are the forces behind the weather and the winds. Just as plant devas know the healing powers of plants (and taught the shamans and healers their knowledge), so are there more powerful devas that know and guide the patterns of evolution of the whole planet. - Author: Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
#24. Conscious minds can, at the most, comprehend that the whole idea of a 'God' is his superiority, his omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience; and therefore, at the least, desire him, someone far greater than themselves. - Author: Criss Jami
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Criss Jami
#25. Wisdom is not a question of learning facts with the mind; it can only be acquired through perfection of living. - Author: Nilakanta Sri Ram
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Nilakanta Sri Ram
#26. Scarlett (O'Hara) taught that one could be hungry and despairing, but not broken and not without resources, spiritual in nature, that precluded one from surrendering without a fight - Author: Pat Conroy
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Pat Conroy
#27. We work on ourselves in order to help others, but also we help others in order to work on ourselves. - Author: Pema Chodron
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Pema Chodron
#28. Burn worldly love,
rub the ashes and make ink of it,
make the heart the pen,
the intellect the writer,
write that which has no end or limit. - Author: Guru Nanak
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Guru Nanak
#29. I felt like I was literally losing myself as being the joyful, spiritual, passionate, exciting woman that I naturally had been. - Author: Tasha Smith
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Tasha Smith
#30. The Gathering
According to the Kabbalah, in the beginning everything was God. When God contracted to make room for creation, spiritual energy filled the void. The energy poured into vessels which strained to hold the great power. The vessels shattered, sending countless shards, bits of the glowing matter, into the vastness of the universe.
These scattered bits of divine light must be collected. When the task is done the forces of the dark will be vanquished and the world will be healed. - Author: Leonard Nimoy
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Leonard Nimoy
#31. I do not know who coined the statement "an idle mind is the devil's playground," but it is true. When camping in dangerous places, it is often recommended that you keep a campfire going to keep the predators away. When we set our hearts on fire, demonic predators stay out of our camp, which is my main point in this chapter. The apostle Paul put it best: "Love never fails" (see 1 Corinthians 13:8). We have spent several chapters talking about how to win spiritual battles in our own lives and in the lives of others. But when all else fails, remember this: Love cannot be defeated. - Author: Kris Vallotton
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Kris Vallotton
#32. The Christian writer will feel that in the greatest depth of vision, moral judgment will be implicit, and that when we are invited to represent the country according to survey, what we are asked to do is to separate mystery from manners and judgment from vision, in order to produce something a little more palatable to the modern temper. We are asked to form our consciences in the light of statistics, which is to establish the relative as absolute. For many this may be a convenience, since we don't live in an age of settled belief; but it cannot be a convenience, it cannot even be possible, for the writer who is a Catholic. He will feel that any long-continued service to it will produce a soggy, formless, and sentimental literature, one that will provide a sense of spiritual purpose for those who connect the spirit with romanticism and a sense of joy for those who confuse that virtue with satisfaction. The storyteller is concerned with what is; but if what is is what can be determined by survey, then the disciples of Dr. Kinsey and Dr. Gallup are sufficient for the day thereof. - Author: Flannery O'Connor
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#33. Art is a spiritual function of man, which aims at freeing him from life's chaos. Art is free in the use of its means in any way it likes, but is bound to its laws and to its laws alone. The minute it becomes art, it becomes much more sublime than a class distinction between proletariat and bourgeoisie. - Author: Kurt Schwitters
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Kurt Schwitters
#34. The purpose of the Sabbath is for spiritual uplift, for a renewal of our covenants, for worship, for prayer. It is for the purpose of feeding the spirit, that we may keep ourselves unspotted from the world by obeying God's command. - Author: Ezra Taft Benson
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#35. Where there is the slightest insistence, there is no religion there! - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#36. Truth, in the great practical concerns
of life, is so much a question of the reconciling and
combining of opposites, that very few have minds sufficiently
capacious and impartial to make the adjustment with an
approach to correctness, and it has to be made by the rough
process of a struggle between combatants fighting under
hostile banners. - Author: John Stuart Mill
Spiritual Correctness quotes by John Stuart Mill
#37. I offer a genuine insight into how you can, and should, be a rational, science-believing human being and at the same time know that you are also an immortal spiritual being, a spark of God. I propose a worldview that offers a way out of the hate and fear-driven violence engulfing the planet. - Author: Bernard Haisch
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Bernard Haisch
#38. In racing marathons, one does not see the dropouts make fun of those who continue; failed runners actually cheer on those who continue the race, wishing they were still in it. Not so with the marathon of discipleship in which some dropouts then make fun of the spiritual enterprise of which they were so recently a part! - Author: Neal A. Maxwell
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
#39. Keep your dreams ALIVE. No matter how hard it gets, no matter how many people talk about you; they're going to throw dirt on you but that's alright, when they put you in that box (after your dead), they're going to put dirt on you some more, so that's okay - GO, don't be afraid, have NO FEAR. - Author: Tyler Perry
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Tyler Perry
#40. The Cabala may be defined to be a system of philosophy which embraces certain mystical interpretations of Scripture, and metaphysical and spiritual beings ... Much use is made of it in the advanced degrees, and entire Rites have been constructed on its principles. - Author: Albert Mackey
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Albert Mackey
#41. A man's social and spiritual discipline must answer to his corporeal. He must lean on a friend who has a hard breast, as he wouldlie on a hard bed. He must drink cold water for his only beverage. So he must not hear sweetened and colored words, but pure and refreshing truths. He must daily bathe in truth cold as spring water, not warmed by the sympathy of friends. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#42. when a culture needs wise spiritual guidance the most, all it gets from religious leaders is anxious condemnation and critique, along with a big dose of nostalgia for the lost golden age of the good old days. We - Author: Brian McLaren
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Brian McLaren
#43. You can carry out a spiritual revolution by making God's truth the head of everything - Author: Sunday Adelaja
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#44. Learn to let go or everything you have ever done will be in vain. You will let go of everything right now." He told me, staring into my blue eyes with his big golden orbs. "You are going to let go of everything in this world and let yourself become nothing. Do you understand? - Author: Grace Fiorre
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Grace Fiorre
#45. Long-term interpersonal relationships are the crucible of genuine progress in the Christian life. People who stay also grow. People who leave do not grow. We all know people who are consumed with spiritual wanderlust. But we never get to know them very well because they cannot seem to stay put. They move along from church to church, ever searching for a congregation that will better satisfy their felt needs. Like trees repeatedly transplanted from soil to soil, these spiritual nomads fail to put down roots and seldom experience lasting and fruitful growth in their Christian lives. - Author: Joseph H. Hellerman
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Joseph H. Hellerman
#46. Many people who come to spiritual practice are frightened by their feelings. They hope meditation will help them to transcend the messiness of the world and leave them invulnerable to difficult feelings. But this is a false transcendence, a denial of life. It is fear masquerading as wisdom. - Author: Jack Kornfield
Spiritual Correctness quotes by Jack Kornfield
