#1. There was with her a feeling of having descended in the social scale, with a corresponding sense of having risen in the spiritual. Every step which she took toward relieving herself from obligations added to her strength and expansion as an individual. She began to look with her own eyes; to see and to apprehend the deeper undercurrents of life. No longer was she content to "feed upon opinion" when her own soul had invited her. - Author: Kate Chopin
Spiritual quotes by Kate Chopin
#2. I have always worked with energy. Everything is energy. Buddhism. Christ teachings. These are foundation stones for a spiritual life. - Author: Dave Davies
Spiritual quotes by Dave Davies

Spiritual quotes by Sharon Kirstin
#4. God has become trapped in as many living beings as there are. Now should you feel contempt (irritated) towards one when God is trapped? - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#5. I never really cared for the things of this world. It was the glow of Your Presence that filled it with beauty. - Author: Rumi
Spiritual quotes by Rumi
#6. To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common - this is my symphony. - Author: William Ellery Channing
Spiritual quotes by William Ellery Channing
#7. Some Me of Beauty

I took a good long look at myself in a full length mirror
Sometimes it's good to look in a full length mirror
And what I saw was not some soul sister poetess of the moment
But I saw just a woman
Just a woman feeling
Just a woman human
And what I felt was
What I felt was a spiritual revelation
And what I felt was a root revival of some love coming on
Coming on strong
And I knew then, looking in a full length mirror,
That many things were over
And some me of beauty was about to begin - Author: Carolyn Rodgers
Spiritual quotes by Carolyn Rodgers
#8. The Christian that is bound by his own horizon, the church that lives simply for itself, is bound to die a spiritual death and sink into stagnancy and corruption. We never can thank God enough for giving us not only a whole Gospel to believe, but a whole world to give it to. - Author: A.B. Simpson
Spiritual quotes by A.B. Simpson
#9. You no longer speak of your old friends, your Council, your home. I fear that you are forgetting them, and forgetting your reason for coming here."

Hunter sighed. "It's difficult to talk about them, they don't belong here. Anyway, I thought you wanted me to give up my old life. Congratulations, you've won."

The Abate smiled sadly. "Perhaps I did, I wanted you to abandon your violent past and adopt our ways. But I see that you are giving up everything and taking on nothing. What are you afraid of George? - Author: K.S. Marsden
Spiritual quotes by K.S. Marsden
#10. Love has no hands, but can move the heart; and has no feet, but can move the soul. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Spiritual quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#11. Let me also again emphasize that it is only within Islam that Sufism can be practiced. The two have never been separated from each other in their reality and in fact are inwardly one, and certainly they have never been separated for me throughout my life. - Author: Seyyed Hossein Nasr
Spiritual quotes by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
#12. Only the broken heart has the ghost of a chance to grieve, to forgive, to long, to transform.
Christina Baldwin, author of Life's Companion, Journal Writing as a Spiritual Practice, 1990. Used with author's permission - Author: Judith-Victoria Douglas
Spiritual quotes by Judith-Victoria Douglas
#13. It is possible for every human being to be blissful, if you are willing to pay a little attention to how this human mechanism functions. - Author: Jaggi Vasudev
Spiritual quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#14. We love that s why life is full of so many wonderful gifts. - Author: Rumi
Spiritual quotes by Rumi
#15. Just as his sentimentalism is profoundly middle-class and plebeian, but his irrationalism reactionary, so his moral philosophy also contains an inner contradiction: on the one hand, it is saturated with strongly plebeian characteristics, but on the other, it contains the germ of a new aristocratism. The concept of the 'beautiful soul' presupposes the complete dissolution of kalo-kagathia and implies the perfect spiritualization of all human values, but it also implies an application of aesthetic criteria to morality and is bound up with the view that moral values are the gift of nature. It means the recognition of a nobility of soul to which everyone has a right by nature, but in which the place of irrational birthrights is taken by an equally irrational quality of moral genius. The way of Rousseau's 'spiritual beauty' leads, on the one hand, to characters like Dostoevsky's Myshkin, who is a saint in the guise of an epilectic and an idiot, on the other, to the ideal of individual moral perfection which knows no social responsibility and does not aspire to be socially useful. Goethe, the Olympian, who thinks of nothing but his own spiritual perfection, is a disciple of Rousseau just as much as the young freethinker who wrote Werther. - Author: Arnold Hauser
Spiritual quotes by Arnold Hauser
#16. Spiritual literature can be a great aid to an aspirant, or it can be a terrible hindrance. If it is used to inspire practice, motivate compassion, ad nourish devotion, it serves a very valuable purpose. If scriptural study is used for mere intellectual understanding, for pride of accomplishment, or as a substitute for actual practice, then one is taking in too much mental food, which is sure to result in intellectual indigestion. (152) - Author: Prem Prakash
Spiritual quotes by Prem Prakash
#17. The distance between God and humanity is love. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Spiritual quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#18. When the eye is unobstructed, the result is sight. When the ear is unobstructed, the result is hearing. When the mind is unobstructed the result is truth. When the heart is unobstructed, the result is joy and love. - Author: Anthony De Mello
Spiritual quotes by Anthony De Mello
#19. Till the chit is in blissful state, the world does not come in one's remembrance (one forgets the world till that time). - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#20. Jesus being born as a baby was God's way of laughing at a world trying to grow up too quickly. - Author: Steven James
Spiritual quotes by Steven James
#21. Nur once heard it said that a woman's sphere is actually less constrained than a man's. Because whilst he may travel outside in the physical world, her internal world is limitless, set only by the boundaries of her imagination. This life within the mind is a skill that men do not always take the time to learn . . . unless, perhaps, they are of a particularly spiritual bent. - Author: Lucy Foley
Spiritual quotes by Lucy Foley
#22. Every Latter-day Saint should love the inspired Constitution of the United States - a nation with a spiritual foundation and a prophetic history - which nation the Lord has declared to be his base of operations in these latter days. - Author: Ezra Taft Benson
Spiritual quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#23. Marriage (in what is called the spiritual world) is impossible, because of the inequality between every subject and every object. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Spiritual quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#24. It is possible to be confident and still practice humility. Be confident in the success of the teachable, sure in the power & grace of That which supports you. - Author: Russell Kyle
Spiritual quotes by Russell Kyle
#25. Il bel far niente means 'the beauty of doing nothing' ... [it] has always been a cherished Italian ideal. The beauty of doing nothing is the goal of all your work, the final accomplishment for which you are most highly congratulated. The more exquisitely and delightfully you can do nothing, the higher your life's achievement. You don't necessarily need to be rich in order to experience this, either. - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
Spiritual quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#26. Your two selves: Most people are not aware of the fact that they have two different selves. You have a mind and a spirit (consciousness), and though they seem like one thing, they are separate. The way to realize that this is true is to realize that something has to be listening to the thoughts created by your mind.

What is it that hears your thoughts?

There is the part of you that thinks and the part that hears the thoughts. The thinking part is your mind; the part that hears the thoughts is your spiritual-self. You do not actually hear thoughts through your ears, because your mind is already inside your head. The point is, your spiritual-self receives the things the mind creates in a similar way to hearing them.

Check it out: Just ask yourself, what is it that is hearing the thoughts you are thinking right now?

It is your spiritual-self, the same thing that receives all life. - Author: Michael Smith
Spiritual quotes by Michael Smith
#27. The especial genius of women I believe to be electrical in movement, intuitive in function, spiritual in tendency. - Author: Margaret Fuller
Spiritual quotes by Margaret Fuller
#28. It is in no way, shape or form your cosmic duty or responsibility to take away the pain of other people. This is because by absorbing the pain of others, you are depriving them of a vital element of their spiritual evolution and karmic responsibility. - Author: Mateo Sol
Spiritual quotes by Mateo Sol
#29. Let us beware of the prayer for forgiveness becoming a formality: only what is really confessed is really forgiven. Let us in faith accept the forgiveness as promised: as a spiritual reality, an actual transaction between God and us, it is the entrance into all the Father's love and all the privileges of children. Such forgiveness, as a living experience, is impossible without a forgiving spirit to others: as forgiven expresses the heavenward, so forgiving the earthward, relation of God's child. In each prayer to the Father I must be able to say that I know of no one whom I do not heartily love. 'And - Author: Andrew Murray
Spiritual quotes by Andrew Murray
#30. Gratitude and love are always multiplied when you give freely. It is an infinite source of contentment and prosperous energy. - Author: Jim Fargiano
Spiritual quotes by Jim Fargiano
#31. When one's eyes are anointed with the salve of prema, spiritual love then we could see Vrindavan. - Author: Radhanath Swami
Spiritual quotes by Radhanath Swami
#32. If we have a heart to learn and a willingness to follow the example of children, their divine attributes can hold a key to unlocking our own spiritual growth. - Author: Jean A. Stevens
Spiritual quotes by Jean A. Stevens
#33. How Learning to Say Goodbye Taught Me How to Live is an excellent book...very transformative and empowering..lot of practical advise for people struggling to overcome any problem in their life - Author: Nandita Keshavan
Spiritual quotes by Nandita Keshavan
#34. Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself. - Author: Rumi
Spiritual quotes by Rumi
#35. Curiously enough, it seems that at times the spiritual side prevails, and then the materialistic side - in wave-like motions following each other. ...At one time the full flood of materialistic ideas prevails, and everything in this life - prosperity, the education which procures more pleasures, more food - will become glorious at first and then that will degrade and degenerate. Along with the prosperity will rise to white heat all the inborn jealousies and hatreds of the human race. Competition and merciless cruelty will be the watchword of the day. To quote a very commonplace and not very elegant English proverb, "Everyone for himself, and the devil take the hindmost", becomes the motto of the day. Then people think that the whole scheme of life is a failure. And the world would be destroyed had not spirituality come to the rescue and lent a helping hand to the sinking world. Then the world gets new hope and finds a new basis for a new building, and another wave of spirituality comes, which in time again declines. As a rule, spirituality brings a class of men who lay exclusive claim to the special powers of the world. The immediate effect of this is a reaction towards materialism, which opens the door to scores of exclusive claims, until the time comes when not only all the spiritual powers of the race, but all its material powers and privileges are centered in the hands of a very few; and these few, standing on the necks of the masses of the people, want to rule them. Then - Author: Swami Vivekananda
Spiritual quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#36. If you walk around proudly when someone greets you with respect or says, 'welcome, welcome', you will suffer a loss, right? Here, it was the other person's duty [social obligation] to welcome you, but you shouldn't fall short. So you should immediately check your balance-sheet (of karma) to find out where you sustained a loss! - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#37. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path. - Author: Brene Brown
Spiritual quotes by Brene Brown
#38. Interethnic and spiritual accord is our strategic resource, the basis for progress of our society and state. - Author: Nursultan Nazarbayev
Spiritual quotes by Nursultan Nazarbayev
#39. Any man who by repentance and a sincere return to God will break himself out of the mold in which he has been held, and will go to the Bible itself for his spiritual standards, will be delighted with what he finds there. - Author: A.W. Tozer
Spiritual quotes by A.W. Tozer
#40. All prayer is responding to God. In all cases God is the initiator - "hearing" always precedes asking. God comes to us first or we would never reach out to him.92 Yet all prayers are not alike or equally effective in relating to God. The clearer our understanding of who God is, the better our prayers. Instinctive prayer is like an emergency flare in reaction to a general sense of God's reality. Prayer as a spiritual gift is a genuine, personal conversation in reply to God's specific, verbal revelation. - Author: Timothy J. Keller
Spiritual quotes by Timothy J. Keller
#41. Dreams are spiritual in nature but not physical as the scientist want to portray it to the world.Your dreams are the spiritual aspect of your life and the life you live now is the replay of the original.Dreams are spiritual information from God which he uses to direct,motivate,instruct and warn man in life. - Author: ALHASSAN IDDRISU
Spiritual quotes by ALHASSAN IDDRISU
#42. I like spiritual songs. They struck me as truthful and serious. They brought me down to earth and they lifted me up all in the same moment. - Author: Bob Dylan
Spiritual quotes by Bob Dylan
#43. The protection guaranteed by the Amendments is much broader in scope. The makers of our Constitution undertook to secure conditions favorable to the pursuit of happiness. They recognized the significance of man's spiritual nature, of his feelings, and of his intellect. They knew that only a part of the pain, pleasure and satisfactions of life are to be found in material things. They sought to protect Americans in their beliefs, their thoughts, their emotions and their sensations. They conferred, as against the Government, the right to be let alone - the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men. To protect that right, every unjustifiable intrusion by the Government upon the privacy of the individual, whatever the means employed, must be deemed a violation of the Fourth Amendment. And the use, as evidence in a criminal proceeding, of facts ascertained by such intrusion must be deemed a violation of the Fifth.

[Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438 (1928) (dissenting)] - Author: Louis D. Brandeis
Spiritual quotes by Louis D. Brandeis
#44. In many ways a child has actually re-educated the parents upon arrival into their lives - when else do adults take the time to appreciate acorns or clouds? - Author: Ian-Anthony Finnimore
Spiritual quotes by Ian-Anthony Finnimore
#45. Unfortunately, nothing can protect you from the thoughts in your own head. - Author: Katerina Stoykova Klemer
Spiritual quotes by Katerina Stoykova Klemer
#46. Beauty can break a heart and make it think about something more spiritual than the mindless routine we go through day after day to get by. Francis was a singer, a poet, an actor. He knew that the imagination was a stealth way into people's souls, a way to get all of us to think about God. For him, beauty was its own apologetic. That's why a church should care about the arts. They inspire all of us to think about the eternal. - Author: Ian Morgan Cron
Spiritual quotes by Ian Morgan Cron
#47. You are a tower of God. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Spiritual quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#48. What we seek from truth, we find in knowledge. What we seek from knowledge, we find in wisdom. What we seek from wisdom, we find in God. What we seek from God, we find in love. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Spiritual quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#49. Anything allowed in the heart which is contrary to the will of God, let it seem ever so insignificant, or be ever so deeply hidden, will cause us to fall before our enemies. Any root of bitterness cherished towards another, any self-seeking, any harsh judgments indulged in, any slackness in obeying the voice of the Lord, any doubtful habits or surroundings, any one of these things will effectually cripple and paralyze our spiritual life. I believe our blessed Guide, the indwelling Holy Spirit, is always secretly discovering these things to us by continual little twinges and pangs of conscience, so that we are left without excuse. - Author: Hannah Whitall Smith
Spiritual quotes by Hannah Whitall Smith
#50. What you are, and who you are should provide greater clarity about where you have been and where you are headed. Although one distinguishes spiritual from physical nature, the ultimate unification of the two is the consequence of the struggle for internal, external and eternal – peace. - Author: T.F. Hodge
Spiritual quotes by T.F. Hodge
#51. Forgiveness is spiritual. Punishment is legal," Leo says. "They're not mutually exclusive. - Author: Jodi Picoult
Spiritual quotes by Jodi Picoult
#52. We encounter the grinding wheels that sharpen our mental blades many places in life. Adversity, school, parents, spiritual guides, books, experience are all sharpening teachers. As we grow older, to stay sharp we must find new grindstones to whet and sharpen our potential and keep us at our brightest, most penetrating best. - Author: Rob Kall
Spiritual quotes by Rob Kall
#53. Knock on the sky's door, and stars will open it; knock on the universe's door, and love will open it. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Spiritual quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#54. To make possible the subjection of eternal, spiritual organized intelligences to perishable, material structures, certain natural laws would naturally be brought into operation. From the point of view of the eternal spirit, it might mean the breaking of a law directed towards eternal life; yet to secure the desired contact with matter, the spirit was compelled to violate the law. Thus, in this earth life, a man who desires to acquire a first hand acquaintance with magnetism and electricity, may subject himself to all kinds of electric shocks, that, perhaps, will affect his body injuriously; yet, for the sake of securing the experience, he may be willing to do it. Adam, the first man, so used natural laws that his eternal, spiritual body became clothed upon with an earthly body, subject to death. Then in begetting children, he was able to produce earthly bodies for the waiting spirits. According - Author: John Andreas Widtsoe
Spiritual quotes by John Andreas Widtsoe
#55. You think the shadow is the substance. - Author: Rumi
Spiritual quotes by Rumi
#56. When the tendencies (vruti) that were wandering around since time immemorial come within & enter into the Self's (Soul's) abode; it is known as freedom from all wanderings (nivruti). - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#57. Spiritual maturity is not knowing what to do with your whole life, but just knowing what to do next. - Author: Henri Nouwen
Spiritual quotes by Henri Nouwen
#58. It's Much Better To Be Driven By An Inner Sense Of Purpose Than By The Outer Flashy Success". - Author: Venugopal Acharya
Spiritual quotes by Venugopal Acharya
#59. I think of published poets that you could know of...I think [Rainer Maria Rilke] probably has the most great published poems of any poet [...] but Rilke himself was an asshole. If you look at his biography, he was probably misogynist; he was a liar, a cheat; he was a terrible father; he was selfish; he put people down; he had no consideration for anyone [...] yet, he transcends that in his greatest poems. There's that ineffable, spiritual quality - that he himself couldn't reach! But somewhere underneath that reptilian exterior, that asshole exterior of Rainer Maria Rilke, there was some good that came through – like these little sunbursts coming through clouds – that had that moment. And he'd write the Duino Elegies, he'd write the New Poems, and somewhere, that came through.
And that's an amazing thing: you can have a lot of great people who are great individuals, who are loving and caring – and they can't do that. And that's not to say that their lives are meaningless, but they will never be able to affect anyone past the propinquity of their existence. They are never going to be able to affect someone in China; they are never going to be able to affect someone in 2132 the way Rilke can.
And that specialness needs to be acknowledged; that specialness needs to be upheld; it needs to be rewarded, and people need to say, 'Goddamn – that's a good thing! It's a good thing that people make art! - Author: Dan Schneider
Spiritual quotes by Dan  Schneider
#60. Your life purpose is not just one thing, nor just what you love to do, nor a role, nor a legacy you leave. Your life purpose is who you are 24/7. - Author: Diana Dentinger
Spiritual quotes by Diana Dentinger
#61. The more souls who resonate together, the greater the intensity of their love ... and, mirror-like ... each soul reflects the other. - Author: Dante Alighieri
Spiritual quotes by Dante Alighieri
#62. Physical life is characterized by defensiveness, whereas spiritual life is just the opposite. - Author: Eben Alexander
Spiritual quotes by Eben Alexander
#63. Every answer can be followed by another question. - Author: Thomas Lloyd Qualls
Spiritual quotes by Thomas Lloyd Qualls
#64. Secular writers can tell a story about the physical, the emotional, and the intellectual parts of a character. But no matter how well they tell the story, they miss a facet that is innately part of all of us - the spiritual. - Author: Karen Kingsbury
Spiritual quotes by Karen Kingsbury
#65. When you break something, is your first impulse to throw it away? Or do you repair it but feel a sadness because it is no longer "perfect"? Whatever the case, you might want to consider the way the Japanese treated the items used in their tea ceremony. Even though they were made from the simplest materials... these teacups and bowls were revered for their plain lines and spiritual qualities. There were treated with the utmost care, integrity and respect.

For this reason, a cup from the tea ceremony was almost never broken. When an accident did occur and a cup was broken, there were certain instances in which the cup was repaired with gold.

Rather than trying to restore it in a what they would cover the gace that it ahad been broken, the cracks were celebrated in a bold and spirited way. The thin paths of shining gold completely encircled the ceramic cup, announcing to the world that the cup was broken and repaired and vulnerable to change.

And in this way, its value was even further enhanced. - Author: Gary Thorp
Spiritual quotes by Gary Thorp
#66. I am a spiritual person in an eastern religion kind of way. I learned that happiness for all of us is a switch that you flick in your brain. It doesn't have anything to do with getting a new house, a new car, a new girlfriend, or a new pair of shoes. Our culture is very much about that; we are never happy with what we have today. - Author: Tom Ford
Spiritual quotes by Tom Ford
#67. We all have the same root, and are connected...
To tap into this connectedness we must go within. - Author: Summerlyn Guthrie
Spiritual quotes by Summerlyn Guthrie
#68. By the time we were knit in our mothers' wombs, our lives were like open books before Him
every sentence read, every paragraph indented, every chapter titled, every page numbered. He knew it all in advance
all the sin, all the selfishness, every weakness. Yet He chose to love us
lavishly. - Author: Beth Moore
Spiritual quotes by Beth Moore
#69. People see it [boxing] as a physical contact sport, but it's not. It's really a spiritual one of will against will. Who wants it the most? How much is he willing to take - and dish out - to get it? It's like fighting is 10 percent physical and 90 percent emotional. - Author: Mike Tyson
Spiritual quotes by Mike Tyson
#70. Live your best sacred-life.
It is only one-time in history. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Spiritual quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#71. Where there is not the slightest of misery; that is where the Soul is. - Author: Dada Bhagwan

Spiritual quotes by Bob Kauflin
#73. There is no entrance that joy cannot enter, no door that faith cannot open, no bridge that patience cannot cross, and no wall that love cannot breach. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Spiritual quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#74. Afghanistan doesn't have the oil of the Khazars, he said, and we're not ready to prostitute our women like the Thais. Unlike the Westerner's, ours is not a spiritual poverty but a material one. When our needs in that area are met, we will not have the dilemma or crisis of Western man. - Author: Zia Haider Rahman
Spiritual quotes by Zia Haider Rahman
#75. The spiritual kinship between Lincoln and Whitman was founded upon their Americanism, their essential Westernism. Whitman had grown up without much formal education; Lincoln had scarcely any education. One had become the notable poet of the day; one the orator of the Gettsyburg Address. It was inevitable that Whitman as a poet should turn with a feeling of kinship to Lincoln, and even without any association or contact feel that Lincoln was his. - Author: Edgar Lee Masters
Spiritual quotes by Edgar Lee Masters
#76. I have a spiritual advisor I call up, when I just feel lost. Lately, I've been talking to God. I developed this dialogue in rehab, this dialogue with God, and every day I talk to God. - Author: Andy Dick
Spiritual quotes by Andy Dick
#77. In the world God wills work, marriage, government, and church, and God wills all these, each in its own way, through Christ, toward Christ, and in Christ. God has placed human beings under all these mandates, not only each individual under one or the other, but all people under all four. There can be no retreat, therefore, from a "worldly" into a "spiritual" "realm." The practice of the Christian life can be learned only under these four mandates of God. - Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Spiritual quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#78. Sometimes it feels like energy or electricity when it is moving in and through us, but spiritual power is really a distinctive kind of knowledge that is like the key that opens the door or the switch that starts the energy moving. - Author: Frank Fools Crow
Spiritual quotes by Frank Fools Crow
#79. We are like caterpillars, we die so we can be reborn in a higher state. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo

Spiritual quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#82. The beauty of our family is more than physical, it is spiritual. - Author: Russell M. Nelson
Spiritual quotes by Russell M. Nelson
#83. We worship the form, and seek the formless. The Nameless is sought by reciting names. With closed hands, closed minds, we seek Him. - Author: Meeta Ahluwalia
Spiritual quotes by Meeta Ahluwalia
#84. Be unselfish. That is the first and final commandment for those who would be useful and happy in their usefulness. If you think of yourself only, you cannot develop because you are choking the source of development, which is spiritual expansion through thought for others. - Author: Charles William Eliot
Spiritual quotes by Charles William Eliot
#85. Be great. Get thy "Self". Know who you are. Beyond this body, and being. You are more than what you're seeing. - Author: Fakeer Ishavardas
Spiritual quotes by Fakeer Ishavardas
#86. Each family prayer, each episode of family scripture study, and each family home evening is a brushstroke on the canvas of our souls. No one event may appear to be very impressive or memorable. But just as the yellow and gold and brown strokes of paint complement each other and produce an impressive masterpiece, so our consistency in doing seemingly small things can lead to significant spiritual results. - Author: David A. Bednar
Spiritual quotes by David A. Bednar
#87. Religion [dharma] originates where there is doer-ship [to do], Moksha [ultimate liberation] originates where there is understanding (to understand). - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#88. Gratitude is the spirit of graceful sacred-existence. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Spiritual quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#89. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Psalm 22:1 We here behold the Saviour in the depth of his sorrows. No other place so well shows the griefs of Christ as Calvary, and no other moment at Calvary is so full of agony as that in which his cry rends the air--"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" At this moment physical weakness was united with acute mental torture from the shame and ignominy through which he had to pass; and to make his grief culminate with emphasis, he suffered spiritual agony surpassing all expression, resulting from the departure of his Father's presence. This was the black midnight of his horror; then it was that he descended the abyss of suffering. No man can enter into the full meaning of these words. - Author: Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Spiritual quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#90. Somewhere along the way, there develops within the soul a yearning that can no longer be ignored, a craving for the great love affair. We feel it drawing ever closer. It is the greatest of them all. It cannot fail. It is all consuming. It is incomparable. It is the love affair with our own true nature and the source from which it comes. The desire is in all of us but, more often than not, it is ignored for other interests. We wrestle with each interest, trying to make it work, growing with each adventure until the light has grown bright enough for us to reach for it. - Author: Donna Goddard
Spiritual quotes by Donna Goddard
#91. While some men see ordinary happenings, others see divine light and guidance. - Author: Thomas Merton
Spiritual quotes by Thomas Merton
#92. Month by month, year by year, there took shape in Paul's mind a new and lucid image of his world, an image at once terrible and exquisite, tragic and farcical. It is difficult to give an idea of this new vision of Paul's, for its power depended largely on the immense intricacy and diversity of his recent experience; on his sense of the hosts of individuals swarming upon the planet, here sparsely scattered, there congested into great clusters and lumps of humanity. Speaking in ten thousand mutually incomprehensible dialects, living in manners reprehensible or ludicrous to one another, thinking by concepts unintelligible to one another, they worshipped in modes repugnant to one another. This new sense of the mere bulk and variety of men was deepened in Paul's mind by his enhanced apprehension of individuality in himself and others, his awed realization that each single unit in all these earth-devastating locust armies carried about with it a whole cognized universe. On the other hand, since he was never wholly forgetful of the stars, the shock between his sense of human littleness in the cosmos and his new sense of man's physical bulk and spiritual intensity increased his wonder. Thus in spite of his perception of the indefeasible reality of everyday things, he had also an overwhelming conviction that the whole fabric of common experience, nay the whole agreed universe of human and biological and astronomical fact, though real, concealed some vaster reality. - Author: Olaf Stapledon
Spiritual quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#93. The faster the motion, the less time to think. Fuselage journalism, Hugh Sidey of Time later called it. - Author: David Halberstam
Spiritual quotes by David Halberstam
#94. Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Spiritual quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#95. The message of the United States is not nuclear power. The message of the United States is a spiritual message. It is the message of human ideals; it is the message of human dignity; it is the message of the freedom of ideas, speech, press, the right to assemble, to worship, and the message of freedom of movement of people. - Author: Hubert H. Humphrey
Spiritual quotes by Hubert H. Humphrey
#96. We are never so free as when we own our sacred serfdom ... - Author: Charles Haddon Spurgeon

#99. I believe in magical things happening and spiritual goings on. Sometimes the most mundane things can surprise you and be magical. - Author: Rae Morris
Spiritual quotes by Rae Morris
#100. The by-product that is created while following the religion of the Self [Soul] is the worldly life. It is gained free of cost. - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#101. Money is not required to buy one necessity of the soul. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Spiritual quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#102. Prize the natural spaces and shorelines most of all, because once they're gone, with rare exceptions they're gone forever. In our bones we need the natural curves of hills, the scent of chapparal, the whisper of pines, the possibility of wildness. We require these patches of nature for our mental health and our spiritual resilience. - Author: Richard Louv
Spiritual quotes by Richard Louv
#103. When "We've always done it that way" is replaced with "Let's try something new," associations will leap to greatness. - Author: Holly Duckworth
Spiritual quotes by Holly Duckworth
#104. What makes me feel alive and connected to God's voice and spirit in this world is creating opportunities for the people I love to rest and connect and be fed at my table. I believe it's the way I was made, and I believe it matters. For many years, I didn't let it matter, for a whole constellation of reasons, but part of becoming yourself, in a deeply spiritual way, is finding the words to tell the truth about what it is you really love. - Author: Shauna Niequist
Spiritual quotes by Shauna Niequist
#105. The universe is not a world of separate things and events but is a cosmos that is connected and coherent. The physical world and spiritual experience are both aspects of the same reality and man and the universe were one - Author: Alexis Karpouzos
Spiritual quotes by Alexis Karpouzos
#106. There are thousands of men and women who go to churches and chapels every Sunday, and call themselves Christians. Their names are in the baptismal register. They are reckoned Christians while they live. They are married with a Christian marriage-service. They are buried as Christians when they die. But you never see any "fight" about their religion! Of spiritual strife, and exertion, and conflict, and self-denial, and watching, and warring they know literally nothing at all. Such Christianity . . . is not the Christianity of the Bible. It is not the religion which the Lord Jesus founded, and His Apostles preached. True Christianity is "a fight."3 - Author: Timothy J. Keller
Spiritual quotes by Timothy J. Keller
#107. What a vicious circle we can put ourselves in: we have come to accept the notion of "fix me first," when part of the essential fixing we all need is to be compassionately involved with others. - Author: Bo Lozoff
Spiritual quotes by Bo Lozoff
#108. Cynicism leads to despair, while fixating on the efforts that seemed to work in the past makes an idol out of spiritual states. - Author: Monks Of New Skete
Spiritual quotes by Monks Of New Skete
#109. We do not drift into spiritual life or disciplined prayer. We will not grow in prayer unless we plan to pray. - Author: D. A. Carson
Spiritual quotes by D. A. Carson
#110. It is best to emphasize again and again that spiritual awakening has nothing to do with reaching a divine state. Rather, it is the acknowledgement that every moment is about accepting life's divinity. - Author: Steve Leasock
Spiritual quotes by Steve Leasock
#111. In order to make room for more of God in our life, we need to let go of things that are currently filling our heart and reorder the things that are not ordered properly in Him. The importance of an appropriate detachment from the things of the world-or as they sometimes speak of it, the putting of our lives into the right-is stressed by all the spiritual writers. - Author: Ralph Martin
Spiritual quotes by Ralph Martin
#112. It is clear that something is seriously lacking in the way we humans are going about things. But what is it that we lack? The fundamental problem, I believe, is that at every level we are giving too much attention to the external, material aspects of life while neglecting moral ethics and inner values. By inner values, I mean the qualities that we all appreciate in others, and toward which we all have a natural instinct, bequeathed by our biological nature as animals that survive and thrive only in an environment of concern, affection, and warm-heartedness-or in a single word, compassion. The essence of compassion is a desire to alleviate the suffering of others and to promote their well-being. This is the spiritual principle from which all other positive inner value emerge. - Author: Dalai Lama XIV
Spiritual quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#113. The seeker says, "I do not know." That takes honesty. The master says, "I do not know." That takes a mystic's mind that knows things through non-knowing. The disciple says, "I know." That takes ignorance, in the form of borrowed knowledge. - Author: Anthony De Mello
Spiritual quotes by Anthony De Mello
#114. Grace has been defined as the outward expression of the inward harmony of the soul. - Author: William Hazlitt
Spiritual quotes by William Hazlitt
#115. In this world, there are instruments to acquire instruments; 'here', there is the instrument to attain the Final Goal (Self Realization). - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#116. It seems to me, then, that vulnerability and and self-disclosure are at the heart of what we understand about the nature of God. And the reason I believe gay and lesbian people are spiritual people is that we too have participated in vulnerability and self-disclosure, especially in the process of coming-out. When someone shares with you who they really, really are, it is a special offering. To do so when it risks rejection is a profound, holy gift. - Author: Gene Robinson
Spiritual quotes by Gene Robinson
#117. In solitude, struggles occur that no one else knows about. Inner battles are fought here that seldom become fodder for sermons or illustrations for books. God, who probes our deepest thoughts during protracted segments of solitude, opens our eyes to things that need attention. It is here He makes us aware of those things we try to hide from others. - Author: Charles R. Swindoll
Spiritual quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#118. There is another reason also why the soul has traveled safely in this obscurity; it has suffered: for the way of suffering is safer, and also more profitable, than that of rejoicing and of action. In suffering God gives strength, but in action and in joy the soul does but show its own weakness and imperfections. And in suffering, the soul practices and acquires virtue, and becomes pure, wiser, and more cautious. - Author: San Juan De La Cruz
Spiritual quotes by San Juan De La Cruz
#119. That's the choice: eternal death or eternal life. To gain eternal life, you have to let go of your spiritual pride, and die to yourself. To lead others to Christ, to save them from this eternal judgment, you have to speak that truth in love; you have to tell them the truth without pulling any punches. Does that seem impossible? Will your audience turn you off? Well, as we can see, they turned Jesus off. In fact, they hated His message so much, His own neighbors and relatives, in a rage, tried to kill him for preaching it. - Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.
Spiritual quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#120. Man studies simultaneously in three schools. The body is tutored on earth. All the cells of the body perform a particular service, and at the same time they learn. The soul is instructed in the spiritual world, and the spirit is instructed in the Divine world. - Author: Beinsa Douno
Spiritual quotes by Beinsa Douno
#121. To argue about justice is unavoidably to argue about virtues, about substantive moral and even spiritual questions. - Author: Michael Sandel
Spiritual quotes by Michael Sandel
#122. Holy name alone is sufficient to take you back home back to godhead. However to cultivate the mood of surrender You need a Guru. - Author: Bhakti Charu Swami

Spiritual quotes by Edgar Cayce
#125. Ten years ago a book appeared in France called D'Une foi l'autre, les conversions a l'Islam en Occident. The authors, both career journalists, carried out extensive interviews with new Muslims in Europe and America. Their conclusions are clear. Almost all educated converts to Islam come in through the door of Islamic spirituality. In the middle ages, the Sufi tariqas were the only effective engine of Islamisation in Muslim minority areas like Central Asia, India, black Africa and Java; and that pattern is maintained today.

Why should this be the case? Well, any new Muslim can tell you the answer. Westerners are in the first instance seeking not a moral path, or a political ideology, or a sense of special identity - these being the three commodities on offer among the established Islamic movements. They lack one thing, and they know it - the spiritual life. Thus, handing the average educated Westerner a book by Sayyid Qutb, for instance, or Mawdudi, is likely to have no effect, and may even provoke a revulsion. But hand him or her a collection of Islamic spiritual poetry, and the reaction will be immediately more positive. It is an extraordinary fact that the best-selling religious poet in modern America is our very own Jalal al-Din Rumi. Despite the immeasurably different time and place of his origin, he outsells every Christian religious poet.

#126. Because we are more adult than actually mature, we tend to take our sins and baptize them, dressing them up as spiritual maturity. - Author: R.C. Sproul Jr.
Spiritual quotes by R.C. Sproul Jr.

Spiritual quotes by William T. Stead
#128. Work harder on yourself than you do on your job. - Author: Jim Rohn
Spiritual quotes by Jim Rohn
#129. If you spend enough time reading or writing, you find a voice, but you also find certain tastes. You find certain writers who when they write, it makes your own brain voice like a tuning fork, and you just resonate with them. And when that happens, reading those writers - not all of whom are modern ... I mean, if you are willing to make allowances for the way English has changed, you can go way, way back with this - becomes a source of unbelievable joy. It's like eating candy for the soul. So probably the smart thing to say is that lucky people develop a relationship with a certain kind of art that becomes spiritual, almost religious, and doesn't mean, you know, church stuff, but it means you're just never the same. - Author: David Foster Wallace
Spiritual quotes by David Foster Wallace
#130. To the vast majority of people a photograph is an image of something within their direct experience: a more-or-less factual reality. It is difficult for them to realize that the photograph can be the source of experience, as well as the reflection of spiritual awareness of the world and of self. - Author: Ansel Adams
Spiritual quotes by Ansel Adams

Spiritual quotes by T.D. Jakes
#133. A primary goal of the spiritual life is to learn to quiet the mind through prayer and meditation, through spiritual practice, so that we can hear what in both Judaism and Christianity, is called the small, still voice within. - Author: Marianne Williamson

Spiritual quotes by Steve Maraboli
#135. The ultimate Truth is so simple. It is nothing more than being in the pristine state. This is all that need be said. till, it is a wonder that to teach this simple Truth there should come into being so many religions, creeds, methods and disputes among them and so on! Oh the pity! Oh the pity! - Author: Ramana Maharshi
Spiritual quotes by Ramana Maharshi
#136. Several times in my ministry people have expressed the fear that self-acceptance will abort the ongoing conversion process and lead to a life of spiritual laziness and moral laxity. Nothing could be more untrue. The acceptance of self does not mean to be resigned to the status quo. On the contrary, the more fully we accept ourselves, the more successfully we begin to grow. Love is a far better stimulus than threat or pressure. - Author: Brennan Manning
Spiritual quotes by Brennan Manning
#137. Soul is the central point of spiritual discipline. - Author: Mahavira
Spiritual quotes by Mahavira
#138. I feel that I'm a spiritual person in that I feel like telling stories is a spiritual exercise and I think that it's something that we need as a culture and as humans. We need for people to put stories up in front of us that we recognize ourselves - you need to be able to see something in a finite form in order to identify with it sometimes because your life sprawls before you in this kind of way that you can't capture. - Author: Holly Hunter
Spiritual quotes by Holly Hunter
#139. Be still. it takes no effort to be still; it is utterly simple. When your mind is still, you have no name, you have no past, you have no relationships, you have no country, you have no spiritual attainment, you have no lack of spiritual attainment. There is just the presence of beingness with itself. - Author: Gangaji
Spiritual quotes by Gangaji
#140. I just finished reading it [Tanner's Grief] and found it showed many sides of grief...often never talked about. Shared it with two friends yesterday...one has a friend that has been grieving many losses but too busy to stop and feel it. Personally I have believed unresolved grief is what's behind all of the anger, mass killings, hate etc.. So many are crying out but not allowing themselves to really cry through the inner pain and anguish as we are created to do as humans. I have seen this working with kids in schools...with hospice patients as chaplain, in spiritual direction one-on-one and pastoring a church. This is the first novelook I have ever read Abby that deals with grief
in a way that can help those reading it have hope they can do this...and not believe they have to do it alone or with those in their family or friends. Getting the help they need isn't being unfaithful to anyone.

Spiritual quotes by Masaaki Hatsumi
#142. Of all I saw and learned this past half year, one thing stands out. What goes
on in the class is not what teachers think
certainly not what I had always
thought. For years now I have worked with a picture in mind of what my
class was like. This reality, which I felt I knew, was partly physical, partly
mental or spiritual. In other words, I thought I knew, in general, what the
students were doing, and also what they were thinking and feeling. I see now
that my picture of reality was almost wholly false. Why didn't I see this
before? - Author: John Holt
Spiritual quotes by John Holt
#143. The things you spend so much time on
all this work you do
might not seem as important. You might have to make room for some more spiritual things. - Author: Mitch Albom
Spiritual quotes by Mitch Albom
#144. We should forgive and forget the faults of others. Anger is the enemy of every spiritual aspirant. Anger causes loss of power through every pore of our body. In circumstances when the mind is tempted to get angry, we should control ourselves and resolve firmly, 'No.' We can go to a secluded spot and chant our mantra. The mind will become quiet by itself. - Author: Mata Amritanandamayi
Spiritual quotes by Mata Amritanandamayi
#145. Before you are admitted to British citizenship you are not even considered a natural human being.
I looked up the word natural (na'tural) in the Pocket Oxford Dictionary (p. 251); it says: Of or according to or provided by nature, physically existing, innate, instinctive, normal, not miraculous or spiritual or artificial or conventional.... Note that before you obtain British citizenship, they simply doubt that you are provided by nature. - Author: George Mikes

#147. Don't overwork! Enjoy the sacred existence. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Spiritual quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#148. In part, this will happen simply because people who pray the Psalms will be worshiping the God who made them, and one of the basic spiritual laws is that you become like what you worship. More particularly, however, it will happen because people who pray the Psalms will be learning (whether they necessarily think it out like this or not) to live in God's time as well as in their own, in God's space as well as in their own, and even in and as God's "matter" - the stuff of which we're made - as well as in and as our own. The - Author: N. T. Wright
Spiritual quotes by N. T. Wright
#149. Christians believe themselves to be the aristocracy of heaven upon earth, they are admitted to the spiritual court, while millions of men in foreign lands have never been presented. They bow their knees and say they are 'miserable sinners,' and their hearts rankle with abominable pride. Poor infatuated fools! Their servility is real and their insolence is real but their king is a phantom and their palace is a dream. - Author: William Winwood Reade
Spiritual quotes by William Winwood Reade
#150. And yet to possess a young soul that has barely developed is a source of very deep delight. It is like a flower whose richest perfume goes out to meet the first ray of the sun. One must pluck it at that very moment and, after inhaling its perfume to one's heart's content, discard it along the wayside on the chance that someone will pick it up. I sense in myself that insatiable avidity that devours everything in its path. And I regard the sufferings and joys of others merely in relation to myself, as food to sustain my spiritual strength. Passion is no longer capable of robbing me of my sanity. My ambition has been crushed by circumstances, but it has manifested itself in a new form, for ambition is nothing but lust for power, and my greatest pleasure I derive from subordinating everything around me to my will. Is it not both the first token of power and its supreme triumph to inspire in others the emotions of love, devotion and fear? Is it not the sweetest fare for our vanity to be the cause of pain or joy for someone without the least claim thereto? And what is happiness? Pride gratified. Could I consider myself better and more powerful than anyone else in the world, I would be happy. Were everybody to love me, I'd find in myself unending wellsprings of love. Evil begets evil; one's first suffering awakens a realization of the pleasure of tormenting another. The idea of evil cannot take root in the mind of man without his desiring to apply it in practice. Someone has said th - Author: Mikhail Lermontov
Spiritual quotes by Mikhail Lermontov
#151. I release ribbons of gratitude to flow back upon the path I have walked as it stretches out behind me, so they brush past everyone whose path crossed my own. May they feel the brief kiss of remembrance within their hearts, there and then gone again, passing like a spring breeze, so that they suddenly know the things they have done for others, in so many ways big and small, seen and unseen alike, somewhere are known and treasured. - Author: Cristen Rodgers
Spiritual quotes by Cristen Rodgers
#152. The pastor who cares about the spiritual growth of his people must make God and His Word the centerpiece of his ministry. - Author: Steven J. Lawson

#159. Personality Self/ Ego Spiritual Self /Higher Soul/God Not recognizing the divinity in yourself or others Recognizing divinity in self and all living things Seeing yourself as separate from everything Knowing you are connected to everything Focuses on differences Recognizes similarities Intellect (Mind) Intuition (Heart) Hostility Compassion Re-Action Responding with awareness Past or Future Fully in the present moment Fear (false evidence appearing real) Courage Judgment Acceptance Right/Wrong Everything is an experience to learn from, both negative and positive.

Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#161. In reality, those who cheat are indeed the ones who get cheated. Those who are cheated will gain experience and develop (spiritually) in the process. Only money earned dishonestly will be taken away (by nature) from one; rightfully earned money will be put to good use! - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#162. Great material progress has not been matched by great spiritual progress. Quite the opposite. Indeed, from this point of view perhaps man has never been so poor as since he became so rich.

#164. I don't know who will lead us through the '90s, but they must be made to speak to this spiritual vacuum at the heart of American society, this tumor of the soul. - Author: Lee Atwater
Spiritual quotes by Lee Atwater
#165. Now, as it happens, theology is actually a pitilessly demanding discipline concerning an immense, profoundly sophisticated legacy of hermeneutics, dialectics, and logic; it deals in minute detail with a vast variety of concrete historical data; over the centuries, it has incubated speculative systems of extraordinary rigor and intricacy, many of whose questions and methods continue to inform contemporary philosophy; and it does, when all is said and done, constitute the single intellectual, moral, spiritual, and cultural tradition uniting the classical, medieval, and early modern worlds. - Author: David Bentley Hart
Spiritual quotes by David Bentley Hart
#166. Someone has said that no theology is worth believing that cannot be preached standing in front of the gates of Auschwitz. I, for one, could not stand at those gates and preach a version of God's sovereignty that makes the extermination of six million Jews, including many children, a part of the will and plan of God such that God foreordained and rendered it certain.18 I want young Calvinists (and others) to know and at least come to terms with the inevitable and unavoidable consequences of what this radical form of Reformed theology teaches. And I want to give their friends and relatives and Spiritual mentors ammunition to use in undermining their sometimes overconfidence in the solidity of their belief system. - Author: Roger E. Olson
Spiritual quotes by Roger E. Olson
#167. For how long will you keep on wandering around for infinite lifetimes? Your own light is not there. For how long will you keep on wandering in the dark? One has walked for billions and billions of miles and yet he has not seen the light. He has not found the right path. The truth will have to be known, will it not? - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#168. Sometimes you struggle so hard to feed your family one way, you forget to feed them the other way, with spiritual nourishment. Everybody needs that. - Author: James Brown

#170. If someone says, "the Gnani Purush is happy in the 'Real' but happy or unhappy in the 'relative'", then I would say, "No, the Gnani Purush Knows the 'relative' as being the 'relative', and therefore He is happy in the relative as well. - Author: Dada Bhagwan

#172. Maya (deceit) means that one cannot see the nature of things as they are but sees them in a different form. - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#173. When our natural inheritance has been dissipated, then the spirit too, as Heraclitus says, has descended from its fiery heights. But when spirit becomes heavy it turns to water, and with Luciferian presumption the intellect usurps the seat where once the spirit was enthroned. The spirit may legitimately claim the patria potestas over the soul; not so the earth-born intellect, which is man's sword or hammer, and not a creator of spiritual worlds, a father of the soul. - Author: C.G. Jung
Spiritual quotes by C.G. Jung
#174. You remember how you were taught to write. Your mother put a pencil in your hand, took your hand in hers, and began to move it. Since you did not know at all what she meant to do, you left your hand completely free in hers. This is like the power of God in our lives. - Author: Anthony Of Sourozh
Spiritual quotes by Anthony Of Sourozh
#175. Whenever the tissue of life is woven of legalistic relationships, this creates an atmosphere of spiritual mediocrity that paralyzes a person's noblest impulses. - Author: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Spiritual quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#176. Krupa (divine grace) means 'every time sincere'. Without becoming suitable for naimitik krupa (apparent grace), one cannot attain the nischay (Realization that I am Pure Soul). Even in the Kramic (step by step) path, there is naimitk krupa. 'We' shower down special grace. 'Our' grace descends upon one due to ultimate humility. Only thing required is 'complete sincerity'. - Author: Dada Bhagwan
Spiritual quotes by Dada Bhagwan

Spiritual quotes by Amanda Donohoe
#187. As long as you ask questions you are breaking through, but the moment you begin to accept, you are psychologically dead. So right through life don't accept a thing, but inquire, investigate. Then you will find that your mind is something really extraordinary, it has no end, and to such a mind there is no death. - Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
Spiritual quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#188. We have full confidence in Jesus Christ. Our confidence rises as the character of God becomes greater and more trustworthy to our spiritual comprehension. The One with whom we deal is the One who embodies faithfulness and truth-the One who cannot lie. - Author: Aiden Wilson Tozer
Spiritual quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#189. Sudden emotional and physical shocks, bouts of depression, and fear and anxiety make a person vulnerable to possession by ripping tears in his or her barrier of spiritual protection (the aura). The djinn, having no defined form, can slip through these tears and cracks quite easily. It is believed that a person should never go to bed crying or with feelings of fear and worry, as this invites the djinn to attack during sleep. - Author: Rosemary Ellen Guiley
Spiritual quotes by Rosemary Ellen Guiley
#190. A person like me who has grown up in a mixed culture ought to be spiritual. My mother is a Catholic, my father is a Muslim, and my wife is a Hindu. Personally, I feel spirituality is about being clear-hearted. It involves a sense of connection with the divine. - Author: Emraan Hashmi
Spiritual quotes by Emraan Hashmi
#191. I sometimes fear that we have so redefined conversion in terms of human decisions and have so removed any necessity of the experience of God's Spirit, that many people think they are saved when in fact they only have Christian ideas in their head not spiritual power in their heart. - Author: John Piper
Spiritual quotes by John Piper
#192. The inward offer is a kind of spiritual enlightenment, whereby the promises are presented to the hearts of men, as it were, by an inward word. - Author: William Ames
Spiritual quotes by William Ames
#193. Do have a mind of your own. This is not just a spiritual matter only, but one which concerns ordinary manliness. I would do many things to please my friends, but to go to hell to please them is more than I would venture. - Author: Charles Haddon Spurgeon

#194. There is an underlying unity in all things - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
Spiritual quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#195. Part of the advantage, and part of the result of trying to be a producer and director, are the practical things, you find. It's so advantageous to go to a place that you already have a feel for, a literal and spiritual familiarity. - Author: Campbell Scott
