God dwells in you, as you, and you don’t have to ‘do’ anything to be God-realized or Self-realized, it is already your true and natural state. Just drop all seeking, turn your attention inward, to the One Self radiating in the Heart of your very being… ~ Ramana Maharshi
No one can know God who has not first known themself. Go to the depths of the soul, the secret place…to the roots, to the heights, for all that God can do is focused there… ~ Meister Eckhart
Truths are not truths to you unless you realize them within yourself. Without realization, they are just ideas. For spiritual perception, spiritual consciousness, lies not in vague theological ideas, but in the acquisition of Self-realization… ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
This is a very important practice. Live your daily life in a way that you never lose yourself. When you are carried away with your worries, fears, cravings, anger, and desire, you run away from yourself and you lose yourself. The practice is always to go back to oneself… ~ Nhat Hanh
Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from… ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Your world is your consciousness objectified. Waste no time trying to change the outside; change the within; and the without will take care of itself. When the truth of this statement dawns upon you, you will know that you have found the lost key to every door.
I AM (your consciousness) is the magical lost word which was made flesh in the likeness of that which you are conscious of being… ~ Neville Goddard
Listen to yourself. If your body is telling you to avoid certain foods and eat more fruits and veggies, do it. If your gut feeling is telling you to distance yourself from certain people and get closer to those who have a positive aura to them, do it. If your heart is telling you to travel, quit the job, start this project, spend more time in nature, take a break, read this book, be with that person, go for it. Your higher self knows what’s best for you, so don’t ignore the message.
