Beauty is not only in the eye of the beholder, it draws attention to the timeless beholder, the essence of being, that which cannot be named. Barriers of belief and difference are in the process of falling away...

Quotes about Awareness

Kedar Joshi

"The question is how the questioner exists."

Keith Miller

"A spiritual person is also in touch with his or her own reality, feelings and thoughts, and the reality of the people around him or her, not projecting on them."

Ken S. Keyes jr.

“I have everything I need to enjoy my here and now -- unless I am letting my consciousness be dominated by demands and expectations based on the dead past or the imagined future.”

Kiana Tom

"I always trust my gut reaction; it's always right."

Kuan Yin

"The lesson is acceptance of differences. Don't forget you are a part of everything and everything is a part of you. If every human being recognized the power of the love and forgiveness principle, all consciousness on earth would change instantly."

Lama Anagarika Govinda

"The cloud represents the creative power of the mind, which can assume any imaginable form. It is the ideal medium of creation for the enlightened mind, which manifests itself on the plane of timeless meditative vision."

Lama Surya Das

“We cannot expect miracles of mindfulness in our own lives without preparation, commitment & continuing to energetically progress along our spiritual way."

Lao Tzu

“At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and what you want."

Quotes about Spirituality

Lama Surya Das

"Spiritual seekers particularly are on a quest to understand life; we want to examine our own lives and find meaning in what we do and who we are. ... We find meaning in the seeking itself. Every step along the way is the Way..."

Lena Lees

"The pain in those chakras is meant to be felt; experienced. You are going to feel it (the sadness, and despair) move. It's part of the "push-through". The energy in the solar plexus, especially, needs to move...Balance. Practice. Meditating upon my form. These are three excellent spiritual practices to put my teachings in place. I want people to know that spirituality is a focus, a commitment, not a punishment. It's liberating." "The earth is trying to teach humans that everything is spirit. Eventually, humans will learn. It's just another way to understand divinity. Spirit works through one's own humanity and the earth. Everything here (on earth) is for the divine evolution of all energies."

Leonard Jacobson

"We are on a journey of becoming that which we already are. That is the impossible paradox of our lives."

Liara Covert

"Everything that extends from oneness is a fragment."

M. Scott Peck

"I define love thus: The will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth."

Marc Barasch

"For at the center of all spiritual traditions is the beacon of a truly radical proposal: Open your heart to everybody. Everybody."

Marianne Williamson

“Spiritual progress is like detoxification. Things have to come up in order to be released. Once we have asked to be healed, then our unhealed places are forced to the surface.”

Inspirational Quotes about Life

John Ruskin

"There is no wealth but life."

John Steinbeck

"It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it."

John Wesley

"Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In every place you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can."

John Wooden

"You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you."

Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

"Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”

Jonathan Huie

"Life is a game with no rules. Life just happens to us regardless of our best intentions. Our only path to happiness lies in being open to receiving whatever life throws at us - with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life." "Life is a Book of Riddles, with the Real Lessons Writ Small in its Margins."

Jonathan Ive

“It's actually a rare and precious thing to discover what it is you love to do, and I encourage you to remain unapologetically consumed by it. Be faithful to your gift and very confident in its value.”

Quotes about Love

Kurt Vonnegut

“A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.”

La Rochefoucauld

"True love is like ghosts, which everybody talks about and few have seen."

Lao Tzu

"Kindness in words creates confidence...in thinking creates profoundness...in giving creates love." “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage." "Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart, & the senses."

Lao-Tzu

“Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses.”

Leanna L. Bartram

"True love is when your heart and your minds are saying the same thing."

Leo F. Buscaglia

"Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love. Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love you will find that you are left holding only yourself.”

Quotes about Soul

King Solomon

“Your own soul is nourished when you are kind; it is destroyed when you are cruel.”

Kuan Yin

"This phase (of your soul) is so important because you learn so much in human form. This is where the individual's ‘spark' or existence can expand into bigger, more powerful energies, not entities. Entities are closed systems whereas energies are open systems... Some energies are not as potent. The only way to develop a potent energy is to spend an existence on the earth. There, one can develop a compassionate nature so that when passing onto other dimensions, one can be of help."

Kurt Cobain

"If you die you're completely happy and your soul somewhere lives on."

Lance Secretan

"Surely we have a responsibility to finally listen to - and honor - the siren calls of our souls, which have been silenced by our egos throughout our lives? How else can we connect with our essence, the source of our calling?"

Lao Tzu

"Music in the soul can be heard by the universe."

Liara Covert

"One being, one soul, is forever talking to or through fragments of itself."

Lord Byron

"One certainly has a soul; but how it came to allow itself to be enclosed in a body is more than I can imagine. I only know if once mine gets out, I'll have a bit of a tussle before I let it get in again to that of any other."

Louisa May Alcott

"I think immortality is the passing of a soul through many lives or experiences, and such as are truly lived, used and learned, help on to the next, each growing richer, happier and higher, carrying with it only the real memories of what has gone before."
