A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on heaven, experience, and life

You cannot experience what you don’t know. And you don’t know you are in “heaven” right now because you have not experienced it.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on experience, pain, suffering, and perspective

The way to reduce the pain which you associate with earthly experiences and events—both yours and those of others—is to change the way you behold them.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on experience, concepts, life, and remembering

Life (as you call it) is an opportunity for you to know experientially what you already know conceptually. You need learn nothing to do this. You need merely remember what you already know, and act on it.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on words, god, experience, and truth

Words are merely utterances: noises that stand for feelings, thoughts, and experience. They are symbols. Signs. Insignias. They are not Truth. They are not the real thing.

In fact, you place so little value on experience that when what your experience of God differs from what you’ve heard of God, you automatically discard the experience and own the words, when it should be just the other way around.

A Quote by Takuan Soho on zen, mind, kufu, practice, experience, and bushido

We must know that it is not enough just to see what the Mind is, we must put into practice all that makes it up in our daily life. We may talk about it glibly, we may write books to explain it, but that is far from being enough. However much we may talk about water and describe it quite intelligently, that does not make it real water. So with fire. Mere talking of it will not make the mouth burn. To know what they are means to experience them in actual concreteness. A book on cooking will not cure our hunger. To feel satisfied we must have actual food. So long as we do not go beyond mere talking, we are not true knowers.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on experience, distraction, aspiration, and one-pointed

In our spiritual life very often we get fascinating experiences and then we don't want to aspire anymore. It is true that experiences can give us encouragement, but very often when we get too many experiences we enter into the vital world. Suppose you are walking along a street toward your goal. If you see beautiful trees, ponds and flowers alongside the street, what happens? The scenery is so beautiful that you take a rest. You say, "Let me stay here and enjoy this," and then you stop and enjoy it. But your destination remains a far cry.   A sincere seeker knows what his goal is: the highest Truth. He will not delay his journey.  In the spiritual life we aspire for the highest Truth, for God, and for nothing else.

A Quote by Obi on vulnerable, invincible, conquer, and experience

To be human is to be vulnerable - this I must accept. My invincibility lies in my ability to not let the emotional and physical setbacks in life conquer me. I may be vulnerable to the experiences, but I'm invincible in my resolve. I'm unconquerable.
