quest

A Quote by Maureen Murdock on sacred marriage, heroines journey, spiritual warrior, warrior, heroic quest, journey, quest, goal, feminine, masculine, and serve

The heroine must become a spiritual warrior. ... She must not discard nor give up what she has learned throughout her heroic quest, but learn to view her hard-earned skills and success not so much as a goal but as one part of the entire journey. She will begin to use these skills to work toward the larger quest of bringing people together, rather than her own individual gain. This is the sacred marriage of the feminine and masculine--when a woman can truly serve not only the needs of others but can value and be responsive to her own needs as well.

A Quote by John Hay Allison on discipline, doctrine, faith, nature, quest, ransom, standard, truth, and universe

Truth is the discipline of the ascetic, the quest of the mystic, the faith of the simple, the ransom of the weak, the standard of the righteous, the doctrine of the meek, and the challenge of Nature.  Together, all these constitute the Law of the universe.

A Quote by Daniel Boorstin on religion, quest, ignorance, thinking, thought, and civilization

Probably no one of us has the True Religion. But all of us together - if we are allowed to be free - are discovering ways of conversing about the great mysteries. The pretense to know all the answers to the deepest mysteries is, of course, the grossest fraud. And any people who declare a Jihad, a holy war on unbelievers - those who do not share their believers' pretended omniscience - are enemies of thinking men and woman and of civilization. I see religion as only a way of asking unanswerable questions, of sharing the joy of a community of quest, and solacing one another in our ignorance.

I'm an adventurer, looking for treasure, he said to himelf.

A Quote by Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) on life and quest

in

The spiritual quest was always the predominant aspect of my life.  It's always been there.  But there's also an incredible passion connected to it; it's not just a dry investigative process.  I have been extremely emotional about it, and that comes out in the songs.

A Quote by Montague Whitsel on awareness, imagination, life, magic, quest, self, soul, spirit, time, winter, and wisdom

Mid-December is thus one of the most positively magical times of the year.  Things are possible during December's darkening days that are not even dreamt of at other spokes of the Wheel of the Year.  We should use this magic as a vehicle for deepening our awareness of the world around us and preparing our souls for the ongoing pilgrimage of our lives.  A seeker of Wisdom in the thrall of Winter's Solstice should consider their celebrations as a spiritual pilgrimage or even a quest, during which, through the disciplined use of the spiritual imagination, he or she may encounter one's own truest self along the way and in communion with Spirit.

A Quote by John Burroughs on life, nature, quest, spring, and stars

To see the fire that warms you or, better yet, to cut the wood that feeds the fire that warms you; to see the spring where the water bubbles up that slakes your thirst and to dip your pail into it; to see the beams that are the stay of your four walls and the timbers that uphold the roof that shelters you; to be in direct and personal contact with the sources of your material life; to find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; to find a quest of wild berries more satisfying than a gift of tropical fruit; to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wild flower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on quest

in

"Why is this happening?" is the most useless

question in the Universe.


The only really profitable question is, "What?" As in,

"What do I choose now?" This question empowers.

The "why" question simply perplexes, and rarely

satisfies even when it gets a good answer.


So don't try to "figure it out." Stop it. Just focus on

what you now wish to create. Keep moving forward.

There's nothing behind you that can possibly serve

you better than your highest thoughts about tomorrow.

Neale Donald Walsch

A Quote by Xia Neifion~Clark on temple, truthful, appropriate, communication, exchange, gene pool, spiritual tradition, true center, universality, synthesis, quest, equilibrium, neutralization, unification, and spirituality

It can be said that a Temple is most appropriate (i.e. Truthful) when considered as a center of communication and exchange between the gene pools of the various Spiritual Traditions.  A Temple which is anything other than a True Center (of Universality and Synthesis) - anything other than the Quest for equilibrium, neutralization, and/or unification of differences and discrepancies - only pretends a basis in Spirituality.

A Quote by Don Edward Beck, Ph.D. on society, quest, culture, codes, and memes

Once a new social stage appears in a culture, it will spread its instructional codes and life-priority messages throughout that culture's surface-level expressions: religion, economic and political arrangements, psychological and anthro-pological theories, and views of human nature, our future destiny, globalization, and even architectural patterns and sports preferences. We all live in flow states; there is always new wine, always old wineskins. We, indeed, find ourselves pursuing a neverending quest.
