You think of yourselves as humans searching for a spiritual awakening, when in fact you are spiritual beings attempting to cope with a human awakening. Seeing yourselves from the perspective of the spirit within will help you to remember why you came here and what you came here to do.
~ Neale Donald Walsch


Spiritual Awakening is awakening from the dream of thought.
~ Eckhart Tolle


The spiritual journey does not consist of arriving at a new destination where a person gains what he did not have, or becomes what he is not. It consists in the dissipation of one's own ignorance concerning oneself and life, and the gradual growth of that understanding which begins the spiritual awakening. The finding of God is a coming to one?s self.
~ Aldous Huxley


Straight away, remove yourself from the field of spiritual progression , stay away from contemplation and skillful discourse, do not do research or meditate on the divinities, and stop concentrating and reciting textbooks! Tell me, what is the absolute nature of reality which allows no room for doubt? Listen carefully! Stop holding on to this or that, inhabit your true absolute nature, and peacefully enjoy the essence of what it is to be alive!
~ Abhinavagupta


We don’t sit in meditation to become good meditators. We sit in meditation so that we’ll be more awake in our lives.
~ Pema Chodron


All our theories of improving the world, while we are still asleep, merely intensify the sleep of humanity.

You will burn and you will burn out; you will be healed and come back again.

~ Rama Swami


Grace woke you up this morning, grace started you on your way and grace enabled you to survive until this very moment.
~ Charles E. Blake


To stay with that shakiness-to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feeling of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge-that is the path of true awakening. Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic-this is the spiritual path.
~ Pema Chodron


When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
~ Laozi


Where is God? Where can I find him?" we ask. We don't realize that's like a fish swimming frantically through the ocean in search OF the ocean

Our heart knows what our mind has forgotten — it knows the sacred that is within all that exists, and through a depth of feeling we can once again experience this connection, this belonging.

Be kind to yourself as you proceed along this journey. This kindness, in itself, is a means of awakening the spark of love within you and helping others to discover that spark within themselves.
~ Tsoknyi Rinpoche


There was a famous Zen master whom people would seek out to become enlightened. He was strict and would occupy people with things having nothing to do with seeking enlightenment. You see, that is the only way to achieve enlightenment; by not focusing on achieving it. Then, one day it will just come to you.
~ Masaaki Hatsumi


A sacred illness is one that educates us and alters us from the inside out, provides experiences and therefore knowledge that we could not possibly achieve in any other way, and aligns us with a life path that is, ultimately, of benefit to ourselves and those around us.
~ Deena Metzger


Not every sky will be blue and not every day is springtime. So on the spiritual path a person learns to find this kind of happiness without needing nice things to happen on the outside. Rather, you find happiness by being who you really are. This isn't mystical. Young children are happy being who they are. The trick is to regain such a state when you are grown and have seen the light and dark sides of life.
~ Deepak Chopra


The hero’s journey always begins with the call. One way or another, a guide must come to say, 'Look, you’re in Sleepy Land. Wake. Come on a trip. There is a whole aspect of your consciousness, your being, that’s not been touched. So you’re at home here? Well, there’s not enough of you there.' And so it starts.
~ Joseph Campbell


There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
~ Edith Wharton


God had brought me to my knees and made me acknowledge my own nothingness, and out of that knowledge I had been reborn. I was no longer the centre of my life and therefore I could see God in everything.
~ Bede Griffiths


The awakening is the purpose. The awakening of the fact that in essence we are light, we are love. Each cell of our body, each cell and molecule of everything. The power source that runs all life is light. So to awaken to that knowledge, and to desire to operate in that realm, and to believe that it is possible, are all factors that will put you there.
~ Dolores Cannon



Spiritual Awakening is awakening from the dream of thought.

At the end of the spectrum when you get to that 12th step, when you have that spiritual awakening we make ourselves available to help other people.
~ Daniel Baldwin


It appears that America's anti-Biblical feminist movement is at last dying, thank God, and is possibly being replaced by a Christ-centered men's movement which may become the foundation for a desperately needed national spiritual awakening.
~ Jerry Falwell


Like the Arthurian years at Camelot, the Sixties constituted a breakthrough, a fleeting moment of glory, a time when a significant little chunk of humanity briefly realised its moral potential and flirted with its neurological destiny, a collective spiritual awakening that flared brilliantly until the barbaric and mediocre impulses of the species drew tight once more the curtains of darkness.
~ Tom Robbins


There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer.
~ Arthur Tappan Pierson


She wasn't about to go down that road herself, which was a testament to her spiritual awakening and her commitment to sanity. It was a real blessing that she didn't follow me, because oftentimes, people go out together and one comes back and the other doesn't. Or both of them never do.
~ Anthony Kiedis


The cultivation of generosity is the beginning of spiritual awakening. Generosity has tremendous force because it arises from an inner quality of letting go. Being able to let go, to give up, to renounce, and to give generously all spring from the same source, and when we practice generosity ... we open up these qualities within ourselves.
~ Sharon Salzberg


Something is amiss, deeply wrong, something is deeply wrong with the way we're living our lives collectively, with the way we are creating our collective experience on earth. And we are coming to the conclusion that the problem after all is not political, that the problem after all is not economic, that the problem after all cannot be solved with bombs or missiles or bullets, but that the problem in fact is spiritual, that the problem with the world today is as it has always been, a problem of our most basic beliefs. Without a doubt it`s a spiritual awakening and a spiritual revolution.
~ Neale Donald Walsch


The movement of grace toward gratitude brings us from the package of self-obsessed madness to a spiritual awakening.
~ Anne Lamott


When Holy God draws near in true revival, people come under terrible conviction of sin. The outstanding feature of spiritual awakening has been the profound consciousness of the Presence and holiness of God.
~ Henry Blackaby


Spiritual awakening - is becoming awake to the aliveness of this moment.
~ Eckhart Tolle


Let us help the phoenix to rise from the ashes; let us help lay the foundation for a new renaissance; let us help to accelerate the spiritual awakening until it lifts us into the golden age which would come.
~ Peace Pilgrim


I believe in the importance of unity among those who know Christ, who profess to be "Christians." . . . I believe there is an important spiritual awakening beginning in the hearts of those truly committed to Christ in the Protestant and Catholic communities. Is it possible that Pope Francis may prove to be an answer not only to the prayers of Catholics, but also those known as Protestants?
~ James Robison


On the flip side, I've also had to struggle with saying "yes." Before I did this research and before I had my own breakdown and spiritual awakening around this work, my motto was, "Don't do anything that you're already not great at doing." Which I think is the way the majority of adults in our culture live. Authenticity is also about the courage and the vulnerability to say, "Yeah, I'll try it. I feel pretty uncomfortable and I feel a little vulnerable, but I'll try it!"
~ Brené Brown


Divine desperateness is the beginning of spiritual awakening because it gives rise to the aspiration for God-realisation.
~ Meher Baba


I was influenced by my children's education in Quaker schools in the Philadelphia area. I experienced a spiritual awakening and became a Christian, was baptized, and joined a church.
~ Mike Berenstain


place where man laughs, sings, picks flowers, chases butterflies and pets birds, makes love with maidens, and plays with children. Here he spontaneously reveals his nature, the base as well as the noble. Here also he buries his sorrows and difficulties and cherishes his ideals and hopes. It is in the garden that men discover themselves. Indeed one discovers not only his real self but also his ideal self?he returns to his youth. Inevitably the garden is made the scene of man's merriment, escapades, romantic abandonment, spiritual awakening or the perfection of his finer self.
~ Confucius


The greatest discovery of the 19th century was not in the realm of the physical sciences, but the power of the subconscious mind touched by faith. Any individual can tap into an eternal reservoir of power that will enable them to overcome any problem that may arise. All weaknesses can be overcome, bodily healing, financial independence, spiritual awakening, and prosperity beyond your wildest dreams. This is the superstructure of happiness.
~ William James


In the search for reality, energy creates its own discipline. But mere discipline, without full comprehension of all this, has no meaning, it is a most destructive thing.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


Mere isolation in an enclosing idea is not a release from conflict.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


Are you aware of the significance of every thought, of every reaction that you happen to have?
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


No great spiritual awakening has begun anywhere in the world apart from united prayer.
~ J. Edwin Orr


Freedom lies outside the pattern of society; but to be free of that pattern you have to understand the whole content of it, which is to understand your own mind.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


Most people are unhappy; and they are unhappy because there is no love in their hearts.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


Goodness, generosity, or love does not come into being save through the search for reality.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


When there is spiritual awakening, you awaken into the fullness, the aliveness, and also the sacredness of now. You were absent, asleep, and now you are present, awake.
~ Eckhart Tolle


For most people, spiritual awakening is a gradual process. Rarely does it happen all at once. When it does, though, it is usually brought about by intense suffering.
~ Eckhart Tolle


The nature of spiritual awakening is frequently misunderstood. The adoption of spiritual beliefs, seeing visions of God or celestial beings, the ability to channel, to heal, to foretell the future, or other paranormal powers - all such phenomena are of value and are not to be dismissed, but none of them is in itself indicative of spiritual awakening in a person who experiences them.
~ Eckhart Tolle


We are empty shells if we do not possess, if we do not fill our life with furniture, with music, with knowledge, with this or that. And that shell makes a lot of noise, and that noise we call living; and with that we are satisfied. When there is a disruption, a breaking away of that, then there is sorrow, because you suddenly discover yourself as you are-an empty shell, without much meaning.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


For many people, the first indication of a spiritual awakening is that they suddenly become aware of their thoughts. They become a witness to their thoughts, so to speak. They are not completely identified with their mind anymore and so they begin to sense that there is a depth to them that they had never known before.
~ Eckhart Tolle


Humanity as a whole has already gone through unimaginable suffering, mostly self-inflicted, the culmination of which was the 20th century with its unspeakable horrors. This collective suffering has brought upon a readiness in many human beings for the evolutionary leap that is spiritual awakening.
~ Eckhart Tolle


A teacher or teaching is not essential for spiritual awakening, but they save time.
~ Eckhart Tolle


Being discontented, we either seek a different job or merely succumb to environment...instead of causing us to question life, the whole process of existence.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


The very attention given to finding out if the mind can be completely quiet is quietness.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


Most people like to live in illusions.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


I don't want to be daft and say I had some spiritual awakening or something, but I really did come of age in Los Angeles, where we recorded the album. I had my own little house and my own little circle and I really got to feel how the city ticks.
~ Melanie Chisholm


Freedom lies beyond the field of consciousness.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


Achieve order within yourself...an inward tranquility which knows no disturbance at any moment...in the daily life of the home and the office.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


A global awakening can only happen from a spiritual awakening that is of global dimensions.
~ Matthew Fox


Spiritual awakening is the difficult process whereby the increasing realisation that everything is as wrong as it can be flips suddenly into the realisation that everything is as right is it can be. Or better, everything is as It as it can be.
~ Alan Watts


Spiritual awakening is the most essential thing in man's life, and it is the sole purpose of being. Is not civilization, in all its tragic forms, a supreme motive for spiritual awakening?
~ Khalil Gibran


Man is lost and is wandering in a jungle where real values have no meaning. Real values can have meaning to man only when he steps on to the spiritual path, a path where negative emotions have no use.
~ Sai Baba


We experience ourselves our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.
~ Albert Einstein


There is no other teacher but your own soul.
~ Swami Vivekananda


There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. Yet that will be the beginning.
~ Louis L'Amour


Spiritual relationship is far more precious than physical. Physical relationship divorced from spiritual is body without soul.
~ Mahatma Gandhi


The kind of spirituality I value is one in which you get great joy out of contributing to life, not just sitting and meditating, although meditation is certainly valuable. But from meditation, from the resulting consciousness, I would like to see people in action creating the world they want to live in.
~ Marshall B. Rosenberg


We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
~ Carl Jung


The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.
~ Leo Buscaglia


Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force - that thoughts rule the world.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


You are made in the image of what you desire.
~ Thomas Merton

~ Thomas Merton


You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
~ Swami Vivekananda


A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
~ Albert Einstein


Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
~ Gautama Buddha


That is the real spiritual awakening, when something emerges from within you that is deeper than who you thought you were. So, the person is still there, but one could almost say that something more powerful shines through the person.
~ Eckhart Tolle


... consciousness is an ever-unfolding, deepening, and expanding process with no end point. We are infinite and complex beings, and our human journey involves not just a spiritual awakening, but the development of all levels of our being - spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical - and the integration of all these aspects into a healthy and balanced daily life.
~ Shakti Gawain


Free yourself from the psychological structure of society, which is to free yourself from the essence of conflict.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


As you smell the fragrance of a flower by handing it or the smell of sandalwood by rubbing it against a stone, so you obtain spiritual awakening by constantly thinking of God.
~ Sarada Devi

~ Rachel Caine
