85 Transformative and Enlightening Spiritual Quotes

With each trip around the sun, more and more people come to the realization that there’s somehow more to life than meets the eye. It is an awakening process that leaves many of us wondering what the true nature of reality is all about. Part of this ongoing transition is that people no longer are satisfied with living a purely materialistic lifestyle based on superficial possession. Instead, they actively seek to enrich their life by adopting a more spiritual worldview. As a result of feeling connected to a source greater than themselves, many embark on a spiritual journey in order to find themselves and to seek God. They begin realizing that they are so much more than just this body. Instead of being defined by their human body, they come to the conclusion that they are spiritual beings inhabiting physical bodies. To celebrate the life-transforming influence of living a spiritual life, we’ve created the following collection of enlightening spiritual quotes.

For many of us, there comes a time in life that slowly initiates the – sometimes painful – awakening to a higher reality. If you’ve already lived through this stage, you may know that your former life somehow began feeling dull and purposeless. Even more so, many of the things you once enjoyed pursuing somehow began to feel shallow and imbalanced.

“Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, man cannot live without a spiritual life.”
Buddha

As awkward as this initiation of the awakening process may feel, it nurtures our desire to journey on the spiritual path. In the beginning, living a more spiritual life and surrendering more and more to God may not always be easy.

And suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of the world, yet undisturbed by its multiplicity, for our innermost soul we know ourselves to be one with all being.“
