Don’t you love when you come across an incredible piece of writing that touches your heart SO wildly, that it feels like they were quite literally speaking about your life? Yeah, me too.
SO! I decided this week to share a few of my favorite quotes. There are SO many, and this list is way too short to be able to truly share all of the magnificent words I have read… but in case you need a little inspiration today, here are a few of my favorites! Enjoy.
1.) “Elevate. Each day, live to elevate yourself, each day elevate one person. Make elevation your religion and you shall reach infinity.” ~Yogi Bhajan
2.) “All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.” ~Swami Vivekananda
3.) “Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
4.) “When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible. But in the end, they always fall. Think of it-always.” ~Mahatma Gandhi
5.) “The wave is the same as the ocean, though it is not the whole ocean. So each wave of creation is a part of the eternal Ocean of Spirit. The Ocean cannot exist without the waves, but the waves cannot exist without the Ocean.” ~Paramahansa Yogananda
6.) “Touch your inner space, which is nothingness, as silent and empty as the sky; it is your inner sky. Once you settle down in your inner sky, you have come home, and a great maturity arises in your actions, in your behavior. Then whatever you do has grace in it. Then whatever you do is a poetry in itself. You live poetry, your walking becomes dancing, your silence becomes music.” ~Osho
7.) “It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection.” ~The Bhagavad Gita
8.) “The practice of yoga is the commitment to become established in the state of freedom.” ~Patanjali, Yoga Sutras
9.) “Do not think of yourself as a small, compressed, suffering thing. Think of yourself as graceful and expanding, no matter how unlikely it may seem at the time.” ~BKS Iyengar
10.) “In the One arose love: Love, the first seed of the soul. The truth of this the sages found in their hearts: seeking in their hearts with wisdon, the sages found that bond of union between Being and non-being.” ~Rig Veda
