Maturity is the ability to think, speak and act your feelings within the bounds of dignity. The measure of your maturity is how spiritual you become during the midst of your frustrations.
– Samuel Ullman
I once thought that if I could ask God one question, I would ask how the universe began, because once I knew that, all the rest is simply equations. But as I got older I became less concerned with how the universe began. Rather, I would want to know why he started the universe. For once I knew that answer, then I would know the purpose of my own life.
– Albert Einstein
Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from.
– Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Realize your true nature. That is all there is to do. Know yourself as you are – infinite Spirit. That is practical religion. Everything else is impractical, for everything else will perish.
– Swami Vivekananda
I hear many people share with me that they just ‘have to do this thing’ before they can relax and slow down. The truth is that taking the time to be still and reflective actually increases productivity and gives more joy to what you’re doing when it’s time to take action again.
– Maria Erving
Be true to yourself and the right people and resources always show up. The universe always conspires for the right meetings to occur. Everything is unfolding as it should. It really is.
– Maria Erving
It is through solving problems correctly that we grow spiritually. We are never given a burden unless we have the capacity to overcome it. If a great problem is set before you, this merely indicates that you have the great inner strength to solve a great problem. There is never really anything to be discouraged about, because difficulties are opportunities for inner growth, and the greater the difficulty the greater the opportunity for growth.
– Peace Pilgrim
