Quotes about Spirituality

Swami Sai Premananda

"In meditation, you are not supposed to “concentrate” on the things that arise in the mind. Rather, you are supposed to “bear witness” to the things that arise in the mind. Now bearing witness means what? It means to stand aside and observe, become aware, and examine: “Yes this is there. That is there. This is happening. That is going on.” This is very important because it lays the foundation for the actual inner spiritual work that the meditation will provoke. Meditation is the foundation for deeper spiritual evolution."

Swami Sivananda

"To make the mind obey you is a spiritual discipline."

Swami Vivekananda

"You have to grow from inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul."

Tenzin Gyatso (The 14th Dalai Lama)

"There should be a balance between material and spiritual progress, a balance achieved through the principles based on love and compassion."

The Talmud

“The Divine Spirit does not reside in any except the joyful heart.”

The Urantia Book

"Your spiritual destiny is conditioned only by your spiritual longings and purposes"

Thomas Merton

"A life is either all spiritual or not spiritual at all. No man can serve two masters. Your life is shaped by the end you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire."

Wolf Moondance

"To understand spiritual intention and insight is the knowledge of the rock people. Within each of us is the story of yesterday."
