Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Jac Vanek
You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, and the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from these. You are the sound of the ocean, breath of the fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner.

You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life. You are every single second of every day. So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and the colours fill your mind until there is nothing left to do but explode. There are no wrong answers, inspiration is everything. Sit back, relax and take it all in.


Gary Vaynerchuk

Thomas R. Verny

Neale Donald Walsch

Neale Donald Walsch  1943 
Your life is not about your body.


Your light is seen, your heart is known, your Soul is cherished by more people than you might imagine.  If you knew how many others have been touched in wonderful ways by you, you would be astonished.  If you knew how many people feel so much for you, you would be shocked.  You are far more wonderful than you think you are.  Rest with that.  Rest easy with that.  Breathe again.  You are doing fine.  More than fine.  Better than fine.  You're doin' great.  So relax.  And love yourself today.


Your own life is the way it is because of you, and the choices you have made - or failed to make.


Your purpose in life is to decide and to declare, to express and to experience WHO YOU REALLY ARE, this is the purpose of all life, that is evolution.
