When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world
You are Gods.
You can explore the universe looking for somebody who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and you will not find that person anywhere.
Do you know what you are? You are a manuscript oƒ a divine letter. You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. This universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you are already that.
Dschedal ed-Din Rumi
If we are not empty, we become a block of matter. We cannot breathe, we cannot think. To be empty means to be alive, to breathe in and to breathe out.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Everything is a gift. The degree to which we are awake to this truth is a measure of our gratefullness, and gratefullness is a measure of our aliveness.
The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.
Religion is nothing but institutionalized mysticism. The catch is, mysticism does not lend itself to institutionalization. The moment we attempt to organize mysticism, we destroy its essence.
It is foolish to think that we will enter Heaven without entering into ourselves.
Teresa of Ávila
Mystical experiences do not necessarily supply new ideas to the mind, rather, they transform what one believes into what one knows, converting abstract concepts, such as divine love, into vivid, personal, realities.
As long as we believe ourselves to be even the least different from God, fear remains with us; but when we know ourselves to be the One, fear goes; of what can we be afraid?
There is something divine, mystical, magical and unexplainable in the universe that is listening and responding to each of us.
Silence is the best way to confabulate with the unseen.
Michael Bassey Johnson
When one opens themselves to spiritual perception, the world becomes a magical place.
