self-discovery

A Quote by Georg Buehler on writing, self-discovery, self-knowledge, writers, life, philosophy, and experience

The process of writing can be a powerful tool for self-discovery. Writing demands self-knowledge; it forces the writer to become a student of human nature, to pay attention to his experience, to understand the nature of experience itself. By delving into raw experience and distilling it into a work of art, the writer is engaging in the heart and soul of philosophy - making sense out of life.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on self-discovery and pain

Much of your pain is self-chosen. It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility: For this hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen...

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on rumi, mevlana, open, we, we are all the same, one, oneness, same, knowing, listen, love, inspiration, joy opening, trust, self-discovery, realization, awakening, enlightenment, sufi, one love, and illuminated

We Are All the Same
Listen to the reeds as they sway apart;
Hear them speak of lost friends.
At birth, you were cut from your bed,
Crying and grasping in separation.
Everyone listens, knowing your song.

You yearn for others who know your name,
And the words to your lament.
We are all the same, all the same,
Longing to find our way back;
Back to the one, back to the only one.

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)

A Quote by Saba Sophiya Hasan on liberty, self-discovery, self-knowledge, humility, self-respect, success, and acceptance

Let the river flow and you will be liberated. Let yourself go with current and you will find yourself. Let the wind so blow and you will be able to break yourself free very much like a ripened fruit of self-respect that sheds itself away from the tree of dependence. Let yourself be blown away humbling as a fallen petal and you will find yourself above the lowly dust of ground, to finally discover the truth of your existence for yourself.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on god-realisation, self-discovery, god, and siddhi

God-realisation, or siddhi means Self-discovery in the highest sense of the term. One consciously realises his oneness with God. As long as the seeker remains in ignorance, he will feel that God is somebody else who has infinite Power, while he, the seeker, is the feeblest person on earth. But the moment he realises God, he comes to know that he and God are absolutely one in both the inner and the outer life. God-realisation means one’s identification with one’s absolute highest Self.

A Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on authenticity, leadership, leaders, self-discovery, and vision

A leader will find it difficult to articulate a coherent vision unless it expresses his core values, his basic identity...one must first embark on the formidable journey of self-discovery in order to create a vision with authentic soul.
