A Quote by Adyashanti on freedom, insecurity, free, spirituality, striving, spiritual, mind, seeking, and enlightenment

Inherent in the impulse to be free, is insecurity.  The impulse to be free comes from outside of the mind, and because of this, it makes the mind feel very insecure.  Most spiritual seekers move away from this insecurity by seeking and striving for a distant spiritual goal.  That’s how they avoid feeling insecure.

A Quote by Adyashanti on spiritual, spirituality, violence, control, freedom, enlightenment, mind, and unkown

Spiritual people can be some of the most violent people you will ever meet. Mostly, they are violent to themselves. They violently try to control their minds, their emotions, and their bodies. They become upset with themselves and beat themselves up for not rising up to the conditioned mind's idea of what it believes enlightenment to be. No one ever became free through such violence. Why is it that so few people are truly free? Because they try to conform to ideas, concepts, and beliefs in their heads. They try to concentrate their way to heaven. But freedom is about the natural state, the spontaneous and un-self-conscious expression of beingness. If you want to find it, see that the very idea of "a someone who is in control" is a concept created by the mind. Take one step backward into the unknown.

A Quote by Reb Yerachmiel on meditation, spiritual, and kindness

During a retreat on spirituality a woman rose and said: "I have no need of these practices. I feel spiritual all the time without doing anything." Reb Yerachmiel looked at her more than a moment and said: "The next time you have an urge to be spiritual, take a cold shower. Then dry off and do something kind for someone else."

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on unconscious, evil, nature, highest good, dark, light, bestial, semihuman, and demonic, superhuman, spiritual, and divine

The unconscious is not just evil by nature, it is also the source of the highest good: not only dark but also light, not only bestial, semihuman, and demonic but superhuman, spiritual, and, in the classical sense of the word, "divine."

A Quote by Earon on leadership, teachers, spiritual, spirituality, followers, human, and entertainers

To be sure, there are great spiritual teachers among us.  However, all are human, so they are vulnerable to all of the same temptations and corruptions as the rest of us.  Perhaps we would be better off viewing spiritual teachers as entertainers.  To see them otherwise, often leads to our surrendering our common sense and distorting our boundaries.  Leaders cannot mislead us for long.  It is we, the followers, who mislead ourselves.

A Quote by Diarmuid O'Murchu on consciousness, god, presence, power, spiritual, and meaning

Our consciousness does not need to be informed by formal religious awareness in order to be disposed and recptive to the divine disclosure. Our very nature as human beings is to be open and porous to deeper meaning. And the spiritual story of humankind, unfolding over the millennia, suggests that the divine life force (God) reveals itself with a prodigious generosity of presence, power, and cultural expression.
