A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, growth, and self-realization

It is man's intrinsic and irreducible self-responsibility to humanize himself, to exercise his entire range of rational and moral resources to raise his mode of being and seeing and acting above not just that of animals, but also above that of the majority of subhuman (never to be self-realized) humans who will never draw themselves into a self-punishing position of focal self-diagnosis and self-accountability.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on realizing, beauty, true nature, peace, relaxation, core, being, naturally, beautiful, simple, lifestyle, openhandedly, divine, heart, meditation, no self, self-realization, and beyond self

The real beauty of realizing your true nature is in the freshness,
peace and deep bodily relaxation which touches to the core of
your being, flows into your everyday life and bursts forth naturally
into blossoming from within itself. Without you 'doing' a thing
about any of it.

This is a beautiful and simple change of lifestyle.
A lifestyle of letting go and living openhandedly, curled
up in the sunlit warmth on the lap of
the Divine (your heart)

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on inward, centre, myself, nothing, empty, seeing, joy, self, no self, self-realization, and julie sarah powell

But coming home that day, walking downhill with a panorama of valley and hills before me, I turned my gaze inward, and what I saw, stopped me in my tracks. Instead of the usual unlocalized centre of myself, there was nothing there, it was empty, and at the moment of seeing this there was a flood of quiet joy and I knew, finally I knew what was missing-it was my "self".

The truth is, you already are, it is finished.

It is absolutely and totally possible, and freely available, to step out of this limitation of the Self and rest as your true nature right now.

A Quote by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky on determination, freedom, enlightenment, self-realization, world community, life, and love

"Prepare, and be forewarned in time.  If thou hast tried and failed, O dauntless fighter, yet lose not courage: fight on, and to the charge return again and yet again...
Remember, thou that fightest for man's liberation, each failure is success, and each sincere attempt wins its rewards in time."

Helena Blavatsky (1831 - 1891)

A Quote by Søren Aabye Kierkegaard on life, schoolboys, cheat, copy, answers, learn for yourself, experience, and self-realization

There are many people who reach their conclusions about life like schoolboys: they cheat their master by copying the answer out of a book without having worked the sum out for themselves.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on fearlessness, faith, god, omnipresence, and self-realization

Fearlessness means faith in God: faith in his protection, His
justice, His wisdom, His mercy, His love, and His Omnipresence... To be
fit for Self-realization man must be fearless.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, soul, and self-realization

Always, a form of self-equilibration, a soul or psyche, is trying to assert itself, to continue the melody of its self-realized life.
