God is nearer to us than our own soul: for He is [the] Ground in whom our Soul standeth, and He is [the] Mean that keepeth the Substance and the Sense-nature together so that they shall never dispart. For our soul sitteth in God in very rest, and our soul standeth in God in very strength, and our Soul is kindly rooted in God in endless love: and therefore if we will have knowledge of our Soul, and communing and dalliance therewith, it behoveth to seek unto our Lord God in whom it is enclosed.

Creatures, as numerous as they be
Are subject to His care
There’s not a place where we can flee
But God is present there
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed
Where’er I turn mine eye
If I survey the ground I tread
Or gaze upon the sky

Anna Pereira

Katy Perry

Spiritual Quotes To Live By

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


Plato  429BC – 347BC
Is that which is Holy loved by the Gods because it is Holy, or is it Holy because it is loved by the Gods?

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.

Pleiadians-Barbara Marciniak

Pleiadians-Barbara Marciniak
Everything changes when you start to emit your own frequency rather than absorbing the frequencies around you, when you start imprinting your intent on the Universe rather than receiving an imprint from existence.

You are living in a time when opportunities for self-empowerment, expanded awareness and spiritual growth appear to be unlimited.


Plotinus  204 – 270
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 quote
Giacomo Puccini

Giacomo Puccini  1858 – 1924
The music of this opera (Madame Butterfly) was dictated to me by God; I was merely instrumental in putting it on paper and communicating it to the public.

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.

Paradise is not somewhere else.. It is within you. And it is not in some other time, after death.. It is in you right now.

There is no other God other than life itself.

spiritual quote
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.

In one spirit meet and mingle
Why not I with thine?

spiritual quote
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  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.
