A Quote by St. Thomas Aquanis on awakening and journey

If you bring out what is inside you, what is inside you will save you. If you fail to bring out what is inside you, what is inside you will destroy you.

A Quote by Sharma on life, death, immortality, journey, ultimate truth, beyond ultimate, and eternal

Life is eternal; death only punctuates it for a short while. After a little break life starts again. Death is ultimate truth; life is truth beyond ultimate. Life is never destroyed; it just keeps on changing shapes. Endless processes are attached with this life; many stages are there in this grand journey of life. From an insect to an enlightened soul it keeps on changing. Creation is always beautiful in the beginning. It can be beautiful all the time also. What is purpose of life? It's evolution to higher levels - Mahesh Batish

A Quote by Pema Chodron on hope, fear, spirituality, journey, compassion, and life

 Life is a good teacher and a good friend. Things are always in transition if we could only realize it. Nothing ever sums itself up in the way that we would like to dream about. The off-center, in between state is an ideal situation, a situation in which we don't get caught, and in which we can open our hearts and minds beyond limit.

The spiritual journey involves going beyond hope and fear, stepping into unknown territory, continually moving forward. The most important aspect of being on the spiritual path may be to just keep moving. Usually, when we reach our limit, we feel exactly like Rinpoche's attendants and freeze in terror. Our bodies freeze and so do our minds. Rather than indulge or reject our experience, we can somehow let the energy of the emotion, the quality of what we're feeling pierce us to the heart. This is a noble way to live. It’s the path of compassion - the path of cultivating human bravery and kindheartedness.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on question, purpose, and journey

And so you ask a very good question. Why go on? Why even start off on such a path? What is to be gained from embarking on such a journey? Where is the incentive? What is the reason?

The reason is ridiculously simple. There is nothing else to do.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on path, life, journey, and now

Yet know this: there is no such thing as an incorrect path – for on this journey you cannot “not get” where you are going.

It is simply a matter of speed—merely a question of when you will get there—yet even that is an illusion, for there is no “when,” neither is there a “before” or “after.” There is only now; an eternal moment of always in which you are experiencing yourself.

A Quote by W. Somerset Maugham on travel, change, freedom, journey, and maugham

I travel because I like to move from place to place, I enjoy the sense of freedom it gives me, it pleases me to be rid of ties, responsibilities, duties, I like the unknown; I meet odd people who amuse me for a moment and sometimes suggest a theme for a composition; I am often tired of myself and I have a notion that by travel I can add to my personality and so change myself a little.  I do not bring back from the journey quite the same self that I took

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on journey and silence

At the end of all the roads       
There is only a sound-life     
That does everything,     
And a silence-life     
That becomes everything.

A Quote by Jerry Porras on journey, success, and planning

For most Builders, the journey is like shooting for the moon and instead hitting Mars—perhaps a better, but different outcome than envisioned. Builders are the first to admit (at least, in private) that planning works, but as the adage goes, the plan itself, rarely does.
