Greatest Spiritual Quotes? * 4
    #11903764 - 01/26/10 06:18 AM (10 years, 6 months ago)

A thread to post your favourite spiritual quotes

I'll start with this quote from Gautama Buddha, he is said to have spoken these words just as death was approaching...

"Be a light unto yourself, betake yourselves to no external refuge.
Hold fast to the Truth. Look not for refuge to anyone besides yourselves."


Another quote attributed as being the last words of Gautama Buddha was...

"All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive for your own liberation with earnestness!"

:peace:

If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration, but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.
--Wittgenstein

You will not be punished for your hate, you will be punished by your hate.
--Buddha

Blessed is the lion which becomes man when consumed by man; and cursed is the man whom the lion consumes, and lion becomes man.
--Christ

One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the dark conscious.
--Jung

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rules of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
-- St Paul

We yearn for some explosive, extraordinary escape from the inescapable and, none forthcoming, we put our faith in an apocalyptic rupture whereby the inevitable is solved by the unbelievable grasshoppers, plagues, composite monsters, angels, blood in industrial quantities, and, in the end, salvation from sin and evil--meaning anxiety, travail, and pain.  By defining human suffering in cosmic terms, as part of a cosmic order that contains an issue, catastrophe is dignified, endowed with meaning, and hence made bearable.
--Eugene Weber

Only when you forget you are human will you remember you are a god.
--Beastmaster

"An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind."

-Buddha


--------------------
Turn off your mind, relax and floatdown stream. It is not dying. Lay down all thought, surrender to the void. It is shining.

"He is the greatest hypocrite, who, himself being one, asks others not to be hypocritical."

"He who harms nothing is a good man, he who is harmed by nothing is a God-Man"

"To ask for a purely intellectual proof of the existence of God is like asking for the privilege of being able to see with your ears!"

"How can a finite mind realize an infinite reality without its own annhilation?"

"The infinite truth latent in everything reveals itself only when life is accepted in its totality."

"There is the eternal Now from the beginningless beginning to the endless end. There is one moment only—the ETERNAL NOW. He who experiences the ETERNAL NOW finds all doubts, wounds, everything dissolved like mist, and remains in eternal bliss."

"Being is Dying by Loving."

"The ONE is one complete whole and simultaneously a series of ones within the ONE. Illusion is a ZERO and simultaneously a series of zeros within the ZERO. These zeros have no value, except a false value according to their position in relation to the ONE. In actual fact the zeros have no existence - their existence is mere appearance in Illusion, the big ZERO."
1 000 000 - the zeros only have value because of the 1.

"Live more and more in the Present which is ever beautiful and stretches away beyond the limits of the past and the future."


~ All Meher Baba

His disciples said to Him: "When will the Kingdom come?"

Jesus said: "It does not come by expecting it. It will not be a matter of saying, "Here it is!" or "There it is." Rather, the Kingdom of Heaven is spread upon the earth and men do not see it."
- The Gospel of Thomas

Long accustomed to be carefree,
I have forgotten worldly shame.
Long accustomed to the mind coming and going
By itself, I have forgotten how to hide things.
- Milarepa

The choiceless truth of who you are is revealed to be permanently here permeating everything.  Not a thing and not separate from anything - Gangaji


--------------------
“Strengthened by contemplation and study,
I will not fear my passions like a coward.
My body I will give to pleasures,
to diversions that I’ve dreamed of,
to the most daring erotic desires,
to the lustful impulses of my blood, without
any fear at all, for whenever I will—
and I will have the will, strengthened
as I’ll be with contemplation and study—
at the crucial moments I’ll recover
my spirit as was before: ascetic.”

Jesus said to them, "When you make the two into one; and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner; and the upper like the lower; and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female; when you make eyes in place of an eye, a hand in place of a hand, a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image; then you will enter the Kingdom." - Gospel of Thomas

Pretty much everything by Alan Watts:


The only real crime is that you won't admit that you are God.

Camus said there is only really one serious philosophical question, which is whether or not to commit suicide. I think there are four or five serious philosophical questions:
The first one is: Who started it?
The second is: Are we going to make it?
The third is: Where are we going to put it?
The fourth is: Who's going to clean up?
And the fifth: Is it serious?

"The saints of today are the sinners of the past"

"Any attempt on the ego at loving is merely a calculated form of selfishness."

"A man who has no interests in the world either becomes the greatest of saints or the worst of sinners."

That a real crop circle?  I think I understand the majority of that quote with the exception of the eye in the place of the eye... image in place of the image part.  :confused2:

Quote:

an image in place of an image; then you will enter the Kingdom.



I see it as not having an ego and never entertaining the idea of yourself and just be yourself &then you will become your true self. The real self must take the place of the false self-asserted self. Being occurs before the perception of it's own being(which is the mind) so "reside in the self".
