Quotes To Live By
Watercolour by Sandra Reeves
These Spiritual Quotes are non-denominational, positive words of upliftment for everyone. There are as many different words, as views, we use to describe 'God' ~ Great Spirit, Higher Power, The Light, Brahman, Cosmic Intelligence, The Force, Higher Self, Jehovah, Holy Spirit, Yahweh, Divine Energy, Source and many more... But I believe they all mean the same thing, so as you read these spiritual words of love, encouragement and wisdom, just substitute your own personal word for 'The All That Is.'
The Spiritual Quotes on this page are from surnames A to H, page 2 contains Surnames I to Z. Links to other Spiritual category pages of quotes, sayings and verse are at the bottom of the page.

Eileen Caddy 1917 - 2006
Hold ever before you the vision of the new Heaven and new Earth.
I AM your anchor. I AM your haven. Let My Peace and Love infill and enfold you.
Relax in my love and in turn pour forth that Divine Love out to the world.
Seek and find the freedom of the spirit, for where there is true freedom, there is peace, and where there is peace, there is love,and it is love that unlocks all doors.
The spring of the New Age is here, bursting forth in perfect harmony, beauty and abundance; and nothing can stop it from coming about.
When a cupboard is full to overflowing and the doors are opened up, that which is within comes tumbling out and nothing can stop it. When floodgates are opened, the water rushes forth with tremendous power and force, carrying all before it. So with the spiritual power within you; once it has been recognized and released, nothing can stop the flow. It pours forth, sweeping aside all negativity and disharmony, bringing with it peace, love, harmony and understanding. It is love that will overcome the world; it is love which will unite all humanity. Therefore the sooner you release that tremendous power of love within you and allow it to flow freely, the sooner will you behold world peace and harmony and the oneness of all humanity. When you have love in your heart, you draw the very best out of everyone, for love sees only the best and therefore draws forth the best. Be not afraid; open up, hold nothing back, and let it all flow freely.

Albert Einstein 1879 - 1955
Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous.
Everything in life is vibration.
The human being is a part of a whole, called by us 'Universe,' a part limited by us in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest...a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires, and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why.
The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead, his eyes are closed.
Dwight D. Eisenhower 1890 - 1969
The spirit of man is more important than mere physical strength, and the spiritual fiber of a nation than it's wealth.

Spiritual Quotes: H
Channelling is about allowing yourself to become aware of your intuitive self and extending that intuitive self to become sensitive to subtler levels of consciousness within. So, in whatever creative activity you are involved, you become aware of that sensitivity more acutely. Channelling can also extend beyond this to reaching out on to finer levels of consciousness.
I am part of the Universal Divinity, as you are part of the Universal Divinity. I am Love, I am Light. But are we all not Love and Light? I am that which I hope can help you to discover a little more Light within yourselves. If I can help you to discover that Light, then we are both Enlightened.
In order to find the God without, we need to find the God within.
The purpose of any channelling is not to tell or to instruct, but to stimulate... to create new depths and new areas of thinking.
The spiritual quest needs to manifest through every aspect of your life.
What is of importance in channelling is that the person contacts a higher level of creative thought. This enables more advanced teachings and philosophies to be offered to the planet because the evolution of a planet, both individually and collectively, is on-going.
Dag Hammarskjold 1905 - 1961
Forgiveness is the answer to the child's dream of a miracle by which what is broken is made whole again, what is soiled is again made clean.

The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.
The spiritual journey does not consist in arriving at a new destination where a person gains what he did not have, or becomes what he is not. It consists in the dissipation of one's own ignorance concerning one's self and life, and the gradual growth of that understanding, which begins the spiritual awakening. The finding of God is a coming to one's self.
