Quotes To Awaken Your Spiritual Longing


Do you feel like getting away from it all and spending some quiet time with nature or just being by  yourself? Do you enjoy the silence that is within and feel joyful whenever you touch that silence in you? If you have felt this at any point then it was your spiritual longing trying to nudge you to look deeper beyond the daily mental noise.  We are inherently spiritual. It is the constant thoughts cycling through the mind that creates the illusion of reality, hiding the truth from us all.

There is a quiet and beautiful place within to which we all have access.  It is just a matter of being aware of that and consciously creating that time for ourselves to connect to the deeper dimension of who are.  If we do that on a regular basis we begin to realize that there is no need for the stress, frustration, anger and other negative emotions that we constantly create for ourselves. If only we are in touch with that deeper stillness within ourselves!.  If that is not possible right now, reading some beautiful phrases or quotes from those who have experienced this in some form helps nurture that spiritual longing.  May these quotes stoke that longing.

All else is madness.

Eckhart Tolle

Spiritual awakening is the most essential thing in man’s life, and it is the sole purpose of being. Is not civilization, in all its tragic forms, a supreme motive for spiritual awakening?

– Khalil Gibran

  Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

– Carl Jung

 The real spiritual progress of the aspirant is measured by the extent to which he achieves inner
