James Howard Jeans

James Hopwood Jeans 1877 - 1946
Why should any phenomenon be assumed impossible? The Universe begins to look more and more like a great thought, than a great machine.

Susan Jeffers

Susan Jeffers  1938 - 2012
As your awareness of the riches available to you in your everyday life grows, you are on the way to becoming the laughing Buddha. Life is Joyous. Life is Light. Life is Happy. You are Awake at last.

Bringing a spiritual dimension into all that we do is essential for ending the struggle and dancing with life. Our body and our minds can take us only so far, our Spirit can lead us all the way Home.

Dear God,
I trust that no matter what happens in my life, it is for my highest good. And no matter what happens in the lives of those I love, it is for their highest good. From all things that are put before us all, we shall become stronger and more loving people. I am grateful for all the beauty and opportunity you put into my life. And in all that I do, I shall seek to be a channel for your love.

Dear God, I trust that no matter what happens in my life, it is for my highest good. And no matter what happens in the lives of those I love... - Susan Jeffers - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Carl Jung

Carl Jung 1875 - 1961

Spiritual Quotes:  K   

Immanuel Kant

John Keats

John Keats 1795 - 1821
I am certain of nothing but of the holiness of the heart's affections, and the truth of imagination.

Helen Keller

Helen Keller 1880 - 1968

Akiane Kramarik

Akiane Kramarik 1994
Each and every one of us is part of the infinite perspective, seeing reality through our own individual awareness. Without one of our views, there wouldn't be absolute fulfillment and completeness.

Jiddu Krishnamurti

Jiddu Krishnamurti 1895 - 1986
The difference between me and you is that... I don't mind what happens.

The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love, and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed.

Those who desire to understand, who are looking to find that which is eternal, without beginning and end, will walk together with greater intensity, will be a danger to everything which is unessential, to unrealities, to shadows. They will concentrate, they will become the flame, because they understand.

Spiritual Quotes:  L   

Dalai Lama

C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis  1898 - 1963
Don't think of God in terms of forms, because forms are limited, and God is unlimited.

Once a man is united to God, how could he not live forever?

Something of God flows into us from the blue of the sky, the taste of honey, the delicious embrace of water whether cold or hot, and even from sleep itself.

We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade the presence of God. The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito.

Robert Llewelyn

Robert Llewelyn  1956
Mother to six year old: 'Jane, what are you doing?'

I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.

Bob Marley

Bob Marley 1945 - 1981
Man is a universe within himself.

Peter Matthiessen

Peter Matthiessen 1927
Soon the child's clear eye is clouded over by ideas and opinions, preconceptions and abstractions. Simple free being becomes encrusted with the burdensome aim of the ego.
Not until years later, does an instinct come, that a vital sense of mystery has been withdrawn. The sun glints through the pines, and the heart is pierced in a moment of beauty and strange pain, like a memory of paradise.
After that day, we become seekers.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

E.C. McKenzie
God gives us the ingredients for our daily bread, but He expects us to do the baking.

Adam McLeod

Adam McLeod
As children we see life only in the present moment. Children feel a certain way and react intuitively in the here and now. They have not yet developed an analytical process which interfers with intuition.

The field is a vast sea of information, without boundaries or separations.

We all originate from a common energy,  which explains our inter-connectedness.

Thomas Merton

Thomas Merton  1915 - 1968
We are already one and we imagine we are not. And what we have to recover is our original unity. Whatever we have to be is what we are.


Michelangelo 1475 - 1564
Every beauty which is seen here below by persons of perception resembles more than anything else that celestial source from which we all come.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Betty Mills
Daily prayers will diminish your cares.

Barbel Mohr

Barbel Mohr 1964 - 2010 
Each of us carries the key to freedom within us. This key is the link connecting us to the cosmos, and the knowledge that we are at one with the whole, and that we can allow ourselves to be supported by this wholeness.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Every happening, great and small, is a parable whereby God speaks to us, and the art of life is to get the message.

John Muir

John Muir  1838 - 1914
When we try to pick anything out by itself,  we find it hitched to everything in the Universe.

Prentice Mulford

Prentice Mulford  1834 - 1891
Love is an element which though physically unseen is as real as air or water.  It is an acting, living, moving force... it moves in waves and currents like those of the ocean.

There is a supreme power and ruling force which pervades and rules the boundless Universe. You are a part of this power.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Native American
At the centre of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that centre is really everywhere. It is within each of us.

O Great Spirit, help me always to speak the truth quietly, to listen with an open mind when others speak, and to remember the peace that may be found in silence.
(Cherokee Prayer)

I salute the Light within your eyes, where the whole Universe dwells.

Our first teacher is our own heart.

The Heavens give us each a song.

We are each a thread in the web of life, strengthened by the promise of our dreams.

We return thanks to our Mother, the Earth, which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams, which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and stars, which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the sun, that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit, in whom is embodied all goodness, and who directs all things for the good of her children.

Wisdom comes when you start living the life the Creator intended for you.

What matters is the wholehearted recognition of the wonder and beauty of the whole vital process.  Vital in every sense of the work, the way it functions and how everything is interconnected.

O. Pirmez
When we love, we are the Universe and the Universe lives in us.


Plato  429BC - 347BC
This world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence... a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related.

All that is in Heaven...
is also on Earth.

James Van Praagh

James Van Praagh  1958
Based on our natural heritage as the Divine Light of God, every one of us possesses intuition... defined as the language of the Soul.

Our connection with our intuitive self is ever present and always a part of ourselves.

Possessing intuition is having an absolute trust in yourself. It is the only way to fulfill your highest aspirations and desires.

We all come to this planet as spiritual beings destined to experience a variety of challenges and situation in order to grow and evolve spiritually.

We use intuition as a way to connect with our Divine Self.

Pierre Pradervand

Pierre Pradervand
It is impossible to bless and judge at the same time. So hold constantly as a deep, hallowed, intoned thought, that desire to bless. For truly then shall you become a peacemaker. And one day you shall, everywhere, behold the very face of God.

On passing people in the street, on the bus, in places of work and play...bless them. The peace of your blessing will accompany them on their way and the aura of its gentle fragrance will be a light to their path.

The practise of blessing is a simple way to develop a constantly centred awareness. It is also a tool for growing in universal love and avoiding judgement.

Spiritual Quotes:  R   

Don't try to force anything.  Let life be a deep let-go. See God opening millions of flowers every day without forcing the buds -Osho Rajneesh - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Osho Rajneesh

Osho Rajneesh 1931 - 1990
Each person comes into the world with a specific destiny.  He has something to fulfill  some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed.  You are not here accidentally, you are here meaningfully.  There is a purpose behind you. The Whole intends to do something through YOU.

There is no other God other than life itself.

Norman Rice

Norman Rice 1943
Dare to reach your hand out into the darkness, to pull another hand into the light.

Stephen Richards

Stephen Richards 
Your core, lying deep within you, is what makes you what you are. Some call it the Soul, the Higher Self, the True Self, the Being and so on. The name is unimportant once you realize that you are more than your looks and outward appearance.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

John Roger 
Dig deeply into the spring of love and partake of it.  The supply is infinite.

Thanksgiving is every day...  because in this physical body you can spring into eternal paradise.

Jalal Uddin Rumi

Jalal Uddin Rumi  1207 - 1272  
All creation is Him,  but for eyes that can see.

As you start to walk out on the Way..   The Way appears.

Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.

I belong to no religion. My religion is Love. Every heart is my temple.

If light is in your heart, you will find your way home.

In the garden ~ I see only your face  
From trees and blossoms ~ I inhale only your fragrance

Listen my love, illumination is eternal. Now is always evolving.
As there are billions of stars, there are billions of steps.
As there are billions ofSsouls, there are billions of ways to grow.

Only from the heart can you touch the sky.

Respond to every call that excites your Spirit.

The breeze of dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth, where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.

The message behind the words is the voice of the heart.

The wound is the place where the Light enters you.

You are not a drop in the ocean... you are the entire ocean in a drop.

Your heart is the size of an ocean.  Go find yourself in its hidden depths.

You wander from room to room hunting for the diamond necklace that is already around your neck.

You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
You have wings...
Learn to use them and fly.

Spiritual Quotes:  S   

Albert Schweitzer

Albert Schweitzer 1875 - 1965

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Within your physical atoms the origins of all consciousness still sings.

You each have the same energy and it sings within you. You need not be shy of it, it is your own. You need not look to gurus, or Gods, or Seths. It dwells within your own being.

Betty Shine

Betty Shine  1929 - 2002

Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.

Rupert Spira

Rupert Spira  1960
The greatest discovery in life is to discover that our essential nature does not share the limits nor the destiny of the body and mind.

John Shelby Spong

John Shelby Spong  1931
The idea that the truth of God can be bound in any human system by any human creed by any human book is almost beyond imagination for me. God is not a Christian, God is not a Jew or a Muslim or a Hindu or Buddhist, all of those are human systems which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. I honour my tradition, I walk through my tradition, but I don't believe my tradition defines God. I think it only points me to God. 

Ray Stevens

Ray Stevens  1939
Everything is beautiful in it's own way.  Like the starry summer night,  or a snow-covered winter's day.  And everybody's beautiful in their own way.  Under God's Heaven, the world's gonna find the way.    

There is none so blind as he who will not see.  We must not close our minds,  we must let our thoughts be free.  For every hour that passes by,  we know the world gets a little bit older, it's time to realize that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Louis Stevenson 1850 - 1894
The best things are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, Light in your eyes, Flowers at your feet, Duties at your hand, The Path of God just before you.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Spiritual Quotes:  T   

Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore 1861 - 1941
The same stream of life that runs through the world, runs through my veins night and day, and dances in rhythmic measure. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth into numberless blades of grass and breaks into tulmultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

Jeremy Taylor

Jeremy Taylor 1613 - 1667
Meditation is the tongue of the Soul and the language of the spirit.

Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla  1856 - 1943  
My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration.  I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.

The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of existence.

Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads - Henry David Thoreau - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau 1817 - 1862  
Man emulates Earth.  Earth emulates Heaven.  
Heaven emulates The Way.  The Way emulates Nature.

Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle 1948  
Every true spiritual teaching is about entering the state of non-resistance voluntarily, that is to say consciously.

On a deeper level you are already complete. When you realize that, there is a playful, joyous energy behind what you do.

The Awakening of consciousness is the next evolutionary step for mankind.

You are here to enable the Divine purpose of the Universe to unfold.  That is how important you are.

You are the Universe expressing itself as a human for a little while.

Thomas Traherne

Thomas Traherne 1636 - 1674
The world is a mirror of infinite beauty. It is the place of Angels and the gate of Heaven.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By


When you open your mind to the impossible... sometimes you find the truth.

Lao Tzu

Lao Tzu  600BC   
If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself, if you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.

Seeing the small is called clarity. Keeping flexible is called strength. Using the shining radiance you enter the light, where no harm can come to you. This is called Enlightenment.

The way is like an empty vessel that yet may be drawn from.

Use the Light that dwells within you to regain your natural clarity of sight.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Spiritual Quotes:  U   

Samuel Ullman

Samuel Ullman  1840 - 1924
Whether sixty or sixteen, there is in every human beings heart the lure of wonder, the unfailing childlike appetite of what's next, and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart there is a wireless station; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite, so long are you young.

Evelyn Underhill

Evelyn Underhill  1875 - 1941
It is those who have a deep and real inner life who are best able to deal with the irritating details of outer life.

Doreen Virtue

Doreen Virtue  
Blessed if you do...  Blessed if you don't...
Blessed no matter what!

Prayer simply means 'reconnection' and reconnection with the Divine is your lifeline to endless inspiration and vitality.

Regardless of the situation at hand, the answer is always found through your inner peace.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Spiritual Quotes:  W   

Neale Donald Walsch

Neale Donald Walsch  1943   
All people are special and all moments are golden. There is no person and there is no time, one more special than the other. Many people choose to believe that God communicates in special ways and only with special people. This removes the mass of the people from responsibility for hearing my message, much less receiving it, and allows them to take someone else's word for everything.

Built into you is an internal guidance system that shows you the way home.  All you need to do is heed the voice.

Know that all times are Holy, that every religion holds truth, that each tradition is sacred, and that it is in the simple sharing of love that we make our beliefs come alive, and our dreams come true.

Mine is always your highest thought, your clearest word, your grandest feeling. Anything less is from another source. The highest thought is always that thought which contains joy. The clearest words are those words which contain truth. The grandest feeling is that feeling which you call love.

One's spirituality is about one's deepest personal understanding of, and interactions with, Life and God, whatever those may be.

You are always connected to Source.  Wherever you are, wherever you go, you are always connected to Divine Wisdom, Divine Intelligence and Divine Love.

Rick Warren

Rick Warren 1954
Because God is with you all the time, no place is any closer to God, than the place where you are right now.

Ruth Westheimer

Ruth Westheimer 1928
Our way is not soft grass, it's a mountain path with lots of rocks. But it goes upwards, forward, toward the sun.

David Wilcock

David Wilcock   1973
Finding that core of truth within yourself... that truth that knows and trusts that All Is Well, and that chooses Love... is the greatest spiritual attainment you can ever make.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Ella Wheeler Wilcox 1855 - 1919
So many Gods, so many creeds
So many paths that wind and wind.
While just the art of being kind
Is all the sad world needs.

Anthony Douglas Williams

Anthony Douglas Williams   
God did not create religion.
God created man.  Man created religion.

God is not an act of our imagination.  We are an act of God's imagination.

God's DNA is the Universe.

God's DNA is the universe - Anthony Douglas Williams - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Anthony Douglas Williams

Anthony Douglas Williams   
I see God every day...  For God is in everything I see.

Spirituality is not a religion... It is a way of life.

The determination and conviction to succeed can only come from within.

The majesty of creation forms my faith in the Creator.

There are places on Earth where we can catch a glimpse of Heaven.

What would you think if all your thoughts reached Heaven?

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Harry A. Williams
God is always present and waiting to be discovered, now in the present moment, precisely where we are and in what we are doing.

Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson 1952 
I deepen my experience of God through prayer, meditation and forgiveness.

The spiritual path is simply the journey of living our lives. Everyone is on a spiritual path, most people just don't know it.

The spiritual path is simply the journey of living our lives. Everyone is on a spiritual path, most people just don't know it - Marianne Williamson - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey 1954 
It isn't until you come to a spiritual understanding of who you are - not necessarily a religious feeling, but deep down the spirit within - that you can begin to take control.

You can find the sacred in the most ordinary of things.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Spiritual Quotes:  Y   

Shelley Yates

Shelley Yates 
Once you remember who you are, a Divine Being of the Universal Light of Grace, then you can no longer see others the same, for they too are a Divine piece of the same Source.

Paramahansa Yogananda

Paramahansa Yogananda  1893 - 1952
If you possess happiness you possess everything... To be happy is to be in tune with God.

Kindness is the Light that dissolves all walls between Souls, families and nations.

Gary Zukav

Gary Zukav  1942
Remind yourself that you are supported, that you are not going it alone upon this Earth. Dwell in the company of your Non-Physical Teachers and Guides.
