A Quote by Mitch Albom on emotion, fear, grief, loving, vulnerable, experience, detach, pain, and hold back

If you hold back on the emotions - if you don't allow yourself to go all the way through them you can never get to being detached, you're too busy being afraid. You're afraid of the pain, you're afraid of the grief. You're afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your head even ,you experience them fully and completely You know what pain is. You know what love is. You know what grief is. And only then can you say, "Alright I have experienced that emotion. I recognize that emotion. Now I need to detach from that emotion for a moment.

A Quote by Michael Gerber on entrepreneur, success, growth, and experience

The entrepreneur is our visionary, the creator in each of us. We're born with that quality and it defines our lives as we respond to what we see, hear, feel, and experience. It is developed, nurtured, and given space to flourish or is squelched, thwarted, without air or stimulation, and dies.

A Quote by Mark Twain on wisdom, experience, moderation, and prudence

We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again - and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.

Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on experience

Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell'em, 'certainly I can!' - and get busy and find out how to do it.

A Quote by unknown on belief and experience

The sages say . . .

Experience is stronger than belief. What you were taught when you were a young child might be true or not.

When you experience, then you know.

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on love, trinity, god, experience, union, unitive, self, no self, self realization, beyond self, christianity, and christian contemplative


It is one step, and a giant one, to see clearly and participate in the love that flows between the persons of the Trinity, but even here, God is seen as the object of his own love. It is yet another step to realize that God is beyond all subject and object and is Himself love without subject or object. This is the step beyond our highest experiences of love and union, a step in which self is not around to divide, separate, objectify or claim anything for itself. Self does not know God; it cannot love him, and from the beginning has never done so.

A Quote by Mr. on the path, path, life experience, life, and experience


 We all walk a path in our life experience. If we are diligent and lucky, we receive and interpret the signs that are given to us correctly we find the path that we were meant to be on instead of taking a wrong turn and ending up on the wrong path.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on divine, experience, freedom, projection, self, essence, no self, self realisation, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

In essence all experiences can only be an unconscious projection from the Self or mindbody package, of the Divine. Not the Divine itself, simply triggered by touching on the Divine.

That which is through all experience cannot be affected by anything. It is only that, which is left when experience is gone.

Now there is no experiencer, nor any experience to be experienced.

Freedom itself.
