spiritual path

A Quote by Pema Chodron on spiritual path

When we start out on a spiritual path we often have ideals we think we're supposed to live up to. We feel we're supposed to be better than we are in some way. But with this practice you take yourself completely as you are. Then ironically, taking in pain - breathing it in for yourself and all others in the same boat as you are - heightens your awareness of exactly where you're stuck.

A Quote by Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami on spiritual path, energy, and conscious

The object in being on the spiritual path is not to have just a little influx of energy, but to be the energy itself - consciously.

A Quote by Baba Ram Dass on spiritual path

The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can't be organized or regulated. It isn't true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.

A Quote by Lee Carroll on god, passion, spiritual path, truth, and human heart

"What is Truth? Truth is the attribute of when the human heart marries the love of God, and the result is passion for your spiritual path." -Kryon

A Quote by Shams-ud-din Muhammad (Hafiz) on joy and spiritual path

Tripping over Joy

What is the difference
Between your experience of Existence
And that of a saint?

The saint knows
That the spiritual path
Is a sublime chess game with God

And that the Beloved
Has just made such a Fantastic Move

that the saint is now continually
Tripping over Joy
And bursting out in Laughter
And saying, "I Surrender!"

Whereas, my dear,
I'm afraid you still think

You have a thousand serious moves.

A Quote by Lena Lees on quan yin, kuan yin, driving force, and spiritual path

"It is important to have an idea of the path one wants to be on. This statement comes with an important caveat that one not be too attached to the outcome. To have a concept about the nature of one's life path can be a skillful tool in living one's life. However there is a danger that one will misconstrue a goal to be the entire purpose of one's life and (in so doing) perhaps create a negative driving force."

A Quote by Lena Lees on kuan yin quotes, deity, god, liberate, and spiritual path

"One usually finds a Deity or god, which can help liberate, teach them. It is not helpful, however, to have a Deity forced upon one. It may be the wrong angel-the wrong guide. In such a case, the guide or religion can have the effect of having the individual not perceive anything spiritual or cause them to believe they've failed. Unfortunately, sometimes in these instances, individuals will shun their own spiritual path."

A Quote by Shifu Nagaboshi Tomio on mental conditions, environments, spiritual path, buddha, nature, and mind

 The experience of fragmented mental conditions or inner environments naturally leads aspirants to desire wholeness and completeness, and the spiritual path which suggested these qualities must contain teachings or presentations explainable in experiential terms.  Long ago, the Buddha recognized that it is not the world which requires understanding but our own nature.  There are no mysteries except those of an unclear mind.

A Quote by Daniel Odier on tantra and spiritual path

The Tantric way is open to all the richness of human nature, which it accepts without a single restriction. It is probably the only spiritual path that excludes nothing and no one, and, in this way, it corresponds to the deep aspirations of men and women today.
