5. A Few of My Favourite Quotes

“We are not held back by the love we didn’t receive in the past, but by the love we’re not extending in the present.” – Marianne Williamson

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at, change.” – Wayne Dyer

“As long as I live, so long do I learn.” – Ramakrishna

“Every religion is the product of the conceptual mind attempting to describe the mystery.” – Ram Dass

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.” – Rumi

“Nothing troubles me. I offer no resistance to trouble – therefore it does not stay with me. On your side there is so much trouble. On mine there is no trouble at all. Come to my side.” – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

“Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.” – Kahlil Gibran

“Learning how to love is the goal and the purpose of spiritual life – not learning how to develop psychic powers, not learning how to bow, chant, do yoga, or even meditate, but learning to love. Love is the truth. Love is the light.” – Lama Surya Das

“Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality.” – Carl Sagan

“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” – Carl Jung

“Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late. You don’t have to like it… it’s just easier if you do.” – Byron Katie

“Spiritual practices help us move from identifying with the ego to identifying with the soul. Old age does that for you too. It spiritualizes people naturally.” – Ram Dass

Human beings will continue to deceive and overpower one another. Basically, everyone exists in the very nature of suffering, so to abuse or mistreat each other is futile. The foundation of all spiritual practice is love. That you practice this well is my only request. – His Holiness the Dalai Lama

“A spiritual teaching is a finger pointing toward Reality; it is not Reality itself. To be in a true and mature relationship with a spiritual teaching requires you to apply it, not simply believe in it.” – Adyashanti

“Some people awaken spiritually without ever coming into contact with any meditation technique or any spiritual teaching. They may awaken simply because they can’t stand the suffering anymore.” – Eckhart Tolle

May these snippets of wisdom bless you, and ALL whom you meet.
More to come.
