There is a quote in Fight Club said by Chuck Palahniuk (Brad Pitt), “Our Great war’s a spiritual war.”
If you look at all entertainment, media we couldn’t be closer to that quote. In a time where just about everyone is trying to influence our minds, trying to convince us to believe in something or buy something, we rarely get time to step back and rationally think about anything.
It’s like our minds are constantly flooded by illusions one after another, not giving us the time to think, to react in a rational manner.
Our mind which is our greatest ally, is now at the mercy of manipulation from all ends. Maybe this is the sign that we need to develop spiritually.
Here are some spiritual quotes to enrich your soul and take your first step for spiritual development:
I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It’s just that the translations have gone wrong.John Lennon
The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you really are.Carl Jung
Practice the pause. When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause. When stressed, pause. And when you pause, pray.Toby Mac
As soon as the fear approaches near, attack and destroy it. —— “God is not present in idols. Your feelings are your god. The soul is your temple.Chanakya
Perform All work carefully, guided by compassion —— I am Time, the great destroyer of the world. —— “The happiness which comes from long practice, which leads to the end of suffering, which at first is like poison, but at last like nectar – this kind of happiness arises from the serenity of one’s own mind.Ved Vyasa
If you desire ease, forsake learning. If you desire learning, forsake ease. How can the man at his ease acquire knowledge, And how can the earnest student enjoy ease? ——— The science, which teaches arts and handicrafts Is merely science for the gaining of a living; But the science which teaches deliverance from worldly existence, Is not that the true science?” ———- There is pleasure when a sore is scratched, But to be without sores is more pleasurable still. Just so, there are pleasures in worldly desires, But to be without desires is more pleasurable still.Nagarjuna
The Soul appears to be finite because of ignorance. When ignorance is destroyed the Self which does not admit of any multiplicity truly reveals itself by itself: like the Sun when the clouds pass away. ———- Just as the fire is the direct cause for cooking, so without Knowledge no emancipation can be had. Compared with all other forms of discipline Knowledge of the Self is the one direct means for liberation.Adi Shankara
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.Swami Vivekananda
(If you are really trying to become spiritual, I would recommend going through the teachings of Swami Vivekananda.)
The river that flows in you also flows in me. ———– Are you looking for me? I am in the next seat. My shoulder is against yours. you will not find me in the stupas, not in Indian shrine rooms, nor in synagogues, nor in cathedrals: not in masses, nor kirtans, not in legs winding around your own neck, nor in eating nothing but vegetables. When you really look for me, you will see me instantly — you will find me in the tiniest house of time. Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God? He is the breath inside the breath.Kabir
The greatest sacrifice is when you sacrifice your own happiness for the sake of someone else.Swami Vivekanada
Only when your hearts are empty of the things of the mind, is their love. Then you will know what it is to love without separation, without distance, without time, without fear.Jiddu Krishnamurti
You see, love is, after all, a sense of total absence of the ‘me’.Jiddu Krishnamurti
Different creeds are but different paths to reach the same God. ———- Bondage and Liberation are of the mind alone. ———- As long as I live, so long do I learn. ——— One man may read the Bhagavata by the light of a lamp, and another may commit a forgery by that very light; but the lamp is unaffected. The sun sheds its light on the wicked as well as on the virtuous.Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become. ——– There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends. That magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others first; when you learn to live for others, they will live for you. ——— You may control a mad elephant; You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger; Ride the lion and play with the cobra; By alchemy you may learn your livelihood; You may wander through the universe incognito; Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful; You may walk in water and live in fire; But control of the mind is better and more difficult.Paramahansa Yogananda
When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.Jiddu Krishnamurti
My god is love and sweetly suffers all.Sri Aurobindo
When you love, love as if the person is a god, not less than that. Never love a woman as a woman and never love a man as a man.Osho Rajneesh
I don’t want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing.Alicia Keys
If you’re willing to put yourself and your dreams on the line, at the very least you’ll discover an inner strength you may not have known existed.Kurt Warner
We are not punished for our anger; we are punished by our anger.Eknath Easwaran
