spiritual journey

A Quote by Gabrielle Roth on alienation, ego, embraces, fragmentation, free your mind, inertia, life cycles, longing, personal power, smiles, spirits, spiritual healing, spiritual journey, stillness, taking responsibility, unification, and wounded healer

"We all share the wound of fragmentation.  And we can all share in the cure of unification.  Healing is the unification of all our forces -- the powers of being, feeling, kwowing, and seeing.

I look in the mirror and I look out the window and I see myself and others struggling to be in our bodies.  Struggling to know who we are and what we need.  To like ourselves, rather than wanting to be somebody else, or somewhere else.  I see our inability to relate, to communicate from the heart, to overcome our distance and alienation from one another.  I see us avoiding each other's eyes, at a loss to know what others need.  I see people searching for direction, trying to summon up their personal power, longing for the strength to be independent.

The wounded healer in me knows that healing our driven selves comes from our ability to empower our bodies, hearts, minds, souls, and spirits once more, bringing them into vital unity.  Spiritual healing means taking responsibility for being a whole person.  We have to take responsibility for being a body, for having a heart, for possessing a mind, for awakening our soul, for opening to our spirit.  We need to do right by our body, purify our relationships, use our mind for creative freedom and not enslavement, free the soul from the ego, and undertake the spiritual journey.  A whole person is an inspired person, one who embodies the spirit.

Disease is inertia.  Healing is movement.  If you put the body in motion, you will change.  You are meant to move: from flowing to staccato, through chaos into lyrical and back into the stillness from which all movement comes.

If you let your heart be moved, be open to the risk and the adventure of feelings, letting them work through to completion, you will change.  Tears turn into smiles, anger into embraces.

If you free your mind to experience and complete each of your life cycles, integrating their teachings and tasks, you will change.  It's when you stop moving through life that you get caught out of place, that you react to adult situations with childhood emotions.  Moving completely through your life makes you whole.

If you awaken your soul, you will change.  Engage your characters.  Watch yourself act them out.  Master them, and you're free to be, feel, think, and act as your distinct self.

The spirit in motion heals, expands, circles in and out of the body, moving through the layers of consciiousness from inertia to ecstacy.  Open to the spirit, and you will be transformed.

Movement is my medium and my metaphor.  I know that if a wave of energy is allowed to complete itself, it yields a whole new wave, and in fact that is all I really know.  Riding these waves means joining the cosmic dance that, as Dante says, 'moves the sun and the other stars.'"

A Quote by Lakota Seer on life, spiritual journey, and connection

We are earth people on a spiritual journey to the stars. Our quest, our earth walk, is to look within, to know who we are, to see that we are connected to all things, that there is no separation, only in the mind.

A Quote by Mr. on spiritual journey, journey, and religion

We all take our own spiritual journey. A particular religion can be part of that but doesn't have to be. Many, grow beyond their religions but many in the world don't.

A Quote by Marianne Williamson on love, spiritual journey, and heart

Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we have learned here. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts.

A Quote by Michael Carroll on buddhism, work, honesty, growth, and spiritual journey

Work becomes our spiritual journey when our destination is no longer just becoming more successful or more wealthy, or getting a paycheck, promotion, or job security, but when we also work to resolve a most fundemental question: Can we be at home in our lives - can we be open, honest, and at ease under all circumstances, moment by moment?
