self Realization

A Quote by Adyashanti on awakening, self realization, enlightenment, and truth

Awakening to the truth is a deep realization of what you are as an experience. What is it that is listening? What is it that is feeling? Feel it. Sense it. Welcome it.

A Quote by Keith Ferrazzi on poverty, perception, networking, self realization, community, and empowerment

Poverty, I realized, wasn't only a lack of financial resources; it was isolation from the kind of people that could help you make more of yourself.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on meditation, service, karma, self realization, bhagavad gita, yogananda, and nirvikalpa

The inactive man does not do his duty to his Creator or to the society that maintains him.  The recluse who devotes his entire life to sincere effort in meditation fulfills part of his duty by trying to find and love God, and thus,spiritualize his own life.  To improve oneself is to help society by the example of virtue and by making at least one of its members good!  

But the yogi (monastic or householder) who does his duty to God, and also to the world through some form of uplifting service, is the most highly evolved type of being.  He becomes a master (asiddha) when by such dutiful action he attains the supreme inactive state (nirvikalpa God-union), which is free from karmic effects of actions and is filled with the bliss of Spirit.  

Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 - 1952)
