Most Powerful and Inspirational Quotes Ever
Listed here are some of the most inspirational quotes in spirituality that are having profound meaning. These striking lines rationalize spirituality. These are the real experiences and analysis of life in the spiritual realm.
1. Buddha’s Quote
“The mind is everything. What you think, you become.”
We perceive the world through the mind. The activeness and alertness of the mind exist in the wakeful state. We realize that in deep sleep the awareness falls off and nothing exists.
We experience the awareness of existence through the mind. We are what our thoughts made us where the mind is only the collection of these thoughts as I said in the article ‘How to Control the Mind and Thoughts during Meditation’. Moreover, these thoughts are responsible for our decisions, actions, and perceptions.
These thoughts are different for different people. An arrogant man acts according to his thoughts; a kind-hearted act according to his thoughts. It is the powerful thoughts that made each of us what we are.
2. Vivekananda’s Quote
“Within you lies an indomitable power, you can do anything and everything.”
Some people have realized this limitless potential resides within them. For others, the lower state of consciousness veils this power.
It is the weak mentality or the state of mind that delimits a person’s potential in his actions. The remarkable worldly deeds are the result of a powerful belief system.
When such powerful people determine a thing, it will be done. Try to realize the indomitable power and the rest will happen as determined. (Read also How to Safely Awaken the Kundalini Energy?)
3. Veda Vyasa Maharishi’s Quotes
“Whatever happened, happened for the good; whatever is happening is happening for the good; whatever will happen will also happen for the good only. You need not have any regrets for the past. You need not worry for the future. The present is happening.
What did you lose that you cry about? What did you bring with you, which you think you have lost? What did you produce, which you think got destroyed? You did not bring anything – whatever you have, you received from here. Whatever you have given, you have given only here. Whatever you took, you took from God. Whatever you gave, you gave to him. You came empty handed, you will leave empty-handed. What is yours today, belonged to someone else yesterday, and will belong to someone else the day after tomorrow. You are mistakenly enjoying the thought that this is yours. It is this false happiness that is the cause of your sorrows.”
The spiritually evolved people have an inherent nature towards moderation in everything. Their mentality shifts towards the neutrality where they get less fluctuated by the emotions.
This quote depicts that we are here to play our part. We have only less control over the outcomes of life.
Non-attachment is the way to learn moderation in everything by doing one’s actions as meant.
“It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to be imitative of somebody else’s life with perfection.”
The more one gets attached to something, the more one’s mind becomes unstable. Thus, these attachments bring only the unwanted fluctuations in one’s life.
Life is the composition of pleasures and pains. No one in the world has only pleasures in life.
And, the real happiness is the result of the state of mind as for how we respond to the outcomes of life.
4. Osho’s Quote
“There is a place in India named Mohenjo Daro. It has been found to be the ancient most city in the world. There are seven layers in Mohenjo Daro. It seems that civilization had to face some calamity seven times.
When the first layer was found, it was thought that this is all: we have found Mohenjo Daro. That was determined to be seven thousand years old. But a little more digging and another city was found underneath the first city which must have been ten thousand years old. Then the work continued. The people who were working on the excavation went on digging and city after city. Seven cities have been found in Mohenjo Daro. The seventh seems to be at least twenty thousand years old. They have temples, they have statues of God. Those civilizations have disappeared; those people have disappeared, their religions have disappeared, their gods have disappeared.
The Christian god will disappear the moment Christianity disappears, the Hindu gods will disappear the moment Hinduism disappears. Do you see what I mean to say? It is your projection. If you go on projecting it, it is there. If you are not there to project it, if the projector is not there, the god disappears. I am not in favor of such gods, which have been projected by the tiny mind of man. And of course, the tiny mind of man is bound to give qualities to God which are its qualities.”
God is only the expression of man’s thoughts attributed to the known and unknown phenomena of nature. (Read also 7 Most Influential Spiritual Yogis in the World)
5. Powerful Quote from Quran
“Acquire knowledge, it enables its professor to distinguish right from wrong; it lights the way to heaven. It is our friend in the desert, our company in solitude and companion when friendless. It guides us to happiness, it sustains us in misery, and it is an ornament amongst friends and armor against enemies.”
Verily, knowledge leads to the truth. The reality of everything.
6. Ramana Maharishi’s Quote
“If a man thinks that his happiness is due to external causes and his possessions, it is reasonable to conclude that his happiness must increase with the increase of possessions and diminish in proportion to their diminution. Therefore, if he is devoid of possessions, his happiness should be nil.
What is the real experience of man?
Does it conform to this view?”
“In deep sleep, the man is devoid of possessions, including his own body. Instead of being unhappy he is quite happy. Everyone desires to sleep soundly. The conclusion is that happiness is inherent in man and is not due to external causes. One must realize his Self to open the store of unalloyed happiness”.
As I said in the book ‘Crack the Hidden Laws of Life,’ happiness is the state of mind where seeking happiness finally ends in spirituality. For the worldly man, happiness is related with the pleasures of mind whereas in spirituality it’s just being in neutral state – the blissful state.
7. Powerful Quote from Bible
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hope, and always perseveres.”
This is one of the attributes of spirituality that is expressed by the highly spiritual people. This bestowed compassion is the result of higher consciousness.
8. Einstein’s Quote
“The more I study science, the more I believe in god.”
Here, the god is referred as the exactness in complexity; orderliness in the magical and ghostly nature of the cosmos.
Our world is composed of two factors manifested and mysterious. When we meticulously scrutinize the manifested creations then there’s much more left with unclear factors. There might be a point where these unclear factors become obvious one after the other as the other laws of nature.
When the real truth shines forth the ignorance gets removed automatically as the light removes the darkness. So far it does. All such explorations lead to that truth ultimately.
