A Quote by Janwillem van de Wetering on wisdom, practical, practicality, enlightenment, consciousness, and awareness

For me this book was a very practical explanation of one man's experience of Enlightened awareness in in the face of or in light of dogma-oriented wisdom.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on paramahansa, yogananda, spiritual diary, silence, practical, inner, discipline, castle, and peace

Build your inner environment. Practice Silence! I remember the
wonderful discipline of the Great Ones. When we used to talk and
chatter, they would say: "Go back into your inner castle." It was
very hard to comprehend then, but now I understand the way of peace

A Quote by James Lee Burke on practical and present moment

From the story We Build Churches, Inc.

"What you got to understand is I'm a practical man," he said.  "I have one foot solidly in this world.  That's because I come from a family that never got lost in the next world.  We knew how to hold on to a big chunk of this one and deal with it."

A Quote by hans selye on dreaming, realistic, practical, and inspiring

Those who are realistic and practical are less realistic and practical in the long run than those who dream big dreams and passionately pursue them.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on spiritual, spirituality, practical, divine, and god

A spiritual man should be a normal man, a sound man. God Himself is normal; He is not insane. In order to reach God, a spiritual person has to be divinely practical in his day-to-day activities. Spirituality does not negate the outer life. But we have to know that the outer life does not mean the animal life. The outer life should be the manifestation of the divine life within us.
