potential

A Quote by Micheal Teal on self, soul, positive, joy, awareness, love, life, potential, earth, and peace

 A positive sense of self can bring heaven to earth. If one manifests their divine nature they can transform their inner world and cultivate a life of love and compassion. Love and wholeness will bring us rewarding new life experiences and fulfill our souls potential. Let us all nurture awareness and nourish the spirit, for by doing so we will walk the earth in friendship as we reconnect with joy.

A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on seed, diversity, potential, flowers, fruits, cosmic consciousness, universe, real, and unreal

In the seed there is nothing but the seed - no diversity. At the same time there is the notion of potential diversity [of flowers, fruits] supposedly present in the seed. Even so, cosmic consciousness is one, devoid of diversity; yet the universe of diversity is said to exist only in notion.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on buddhas, you can become a buddha, doubt, uncertainty, teachers, heart, joy, expedient devices, tools, possibilities, and potential

All of you knowing now,
Tthat the Buddhas, the Teachers of the Ages,
In accord with what is peculiarly appropriate, have recourse to expedient devices,
Need have no more doubts or uncertainties.
Your hearts shall give rise to great joy,
Since you know that you yourselves
Shall become Buddhas.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Stephen Batchelor on transcending self, self, practice, transcendence, realization, and potential

The art of dharma practice requires commitment, technical accomplishment, and imagination. As with all arts, we will fail to realize its full potential if any of these three are lacking. The raw material of dharma practice is ourself and our world, which are to be understood and transformed according to the vision and values of the dharma itself. This is not a process of self- or world- transcendence, but one of self- and world- creation.

The denial of "self" challenges only the notion of a static self independent of body and mind--not the ordinary sense of ourself as a person distinct from everyone else. The notion of a static self is the primary obstruction to the realization of our unique potential as an individual being. By dissolving this fiction through a centered vision of the transiency, ambiguity, and contingency of experience, we are freed to create ourself anew.

A Quote by Margaret Mead on culture, diversity, place, potential, and values

If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.

A Quote by shelby lohr on push, inspire, potential, and prove

There's never a band of people pushing and inspiring you. Most will never believe your potential until you literally prove it to them.

A Quote by Barack Obama on potential, ambition, luxury, spirit, accompishments, struggle, and work

We need to steer clear of this poverty of ambition, where people want to drive fancy cars and wear nice clothes and live in nice apartments but don't want to work hard to accomplish these things. Everyone should try to realize their full potential.

A Quote by Barack Obama on ambition, greed, potential, purpose, success, service, and self

Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition.  It asks too little of yourself. ... Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.

Barack Obama
