A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, money, capitalism, culture, modernity, meaning, and values

The modern world has got a variety of Midas' disease, the one where everything a whore touches turns whorish because nobody can see past the money any longer to the meaning of anything.  I suppose this is "culture" considered as a form of STD, where it isn't natural generation that is the central and obsessive principle of everything but rather Money, the principle of all fertility for artificial generation:  instead of the "gift that keeps on giving," it's the mania that keeps on taking.

A Quote by Micheal Teal on life, celebration, mystical, humanity, divinity, love, peace, joy, and meaning

Life is a celebration and if we attune ourselves spiritually we can experience meaningful transformation. The peace within you is a blessing to be shared. Step joyfully into the future and know that as you embrace your magnificence you raise the consciousness of humanity. Love your divinity and let every moment of every day be a mystical experience that takes your soul to the next level.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on cosmic, meaning, and life

There is not one big cosmic meaning for all, there is only the meaning we each give to our life, an individual meaning, an individual plot, like an individual novel, a book for each person.

A Quote by Daisetz Teitaro "D.T." Suzuki on travel, meaning, life, and unknown

When traveling is made too easy and comfortable, its spiritual meaning is lost. This may be called sentimentalism, but a certain sense of loneliness engendered by traveling leads one to reflect upon the meaning of life, for life is after all a travelling from one unknown to another unknown.

D.T. Suzuki (1870 - 1966)

A Quote by Jean Haner on life, purupose, meaning, power, and living

If you're like many of us, you've spent years trying to feel comfortable in your own skin and to figure out what to do with your life. This is your most important purpose: to fully move into the power of your authentic self and to discover how to put that power to work in the world. There's a reason why you are here and a special way to accomplish your role in the world. But so much of us feel a lack of clarity around all this. We feel out of touch with our true nature and aren't sure why.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on life, psychology, desire, soul, purpose, and meaning

I am convinced that the deepest desire within each of us is to be liberated from the controlling influences of our own psychic madness or patterns of fear. All other things--the disdain of ordinary life, the need to control others rather than be controlled, the craving for material goods as a means of security and protection against the winds of chaos--are external props that serve as substitutes for the real battle, which is the one waged within the individual soul.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on crisis, power, change, purpose, meaning, transformation, and life

It is a rare person who can pierce the veil between ordinarly life, consumed with matters of physical survival, and pursuit of the empowered path of purpose and meaning unless he or she is motivated by a crisis. Most often we require the failure of some system of power that we rely on before we take action.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on women, archetypes, meaning, and purpose

We women, when we're searching for a meaning to our lives or for the path of knowledge, always identify with one of four classic archetypes.

The Virgin (and I'm not speaking here of a sexual virgin) is the one whose search springs from her complete independence, and everything she learns is the fruit of her ability to face challenges alone.

The Martyr finds her way to self-knowledge through pain, suffering, and surrender.

The Saint finds her true reason for living in unconditional love and in her ability to give without asking anything in return.

Finally, the Witch justifies her existence by going in search of complete and limitless pleasure.
