Don’t you just love how some quotes seem to be speaking directly to you? Let me tell you, it’s not a coincidence you stumble upon them when you do. Sometimes Life sends us messages we need to hear or see at the right time and place to guide us toward our higher selves. I mean, isn’t that what life is about? Reaching our true potential? Realizing that there is much more to life than eat, sleep, work, and socialize?
We have been programmed into society by our genes passed on from generation to generation believing in only what we could see. But what about the things we cannot see, that are unknown, unexplored, and simply seem impossible? Just because we can’t experience something with our senses does not mean it doesn’t exist.
In fact, science is revealing and proving many before seemingly impossible things, from the mind-body connection and super-human abilities to life after death. In the recent Collective Evolution article, 7 Examples Where Science Meets Spirituality, the author writes:
It’s truly amazing, especially in the fields of neuroscience and quantum physics, just how much knowledge our ancient cultures had regarding the true nature of reality. In many cases, modern day science is in fact catching up to this ancient knowledge.
As the saying goes, we have a lot of knowledge but not enough wisdom. For example, we now know that cancer can be prevented by certain diets and lifestyles but how many of us are actually making the change? Are we so ignorant of the consequences of our lifestyles that we are willingly exposing ourselves to this disease?
Let’s pause and think about that for a moment.
It’s interesting that a large number of people still deny the scientific findings and write them off as delusional. People don’t seem to want change. It would completely disrupt their equilibrium and their strongly rooted beliefs. How can we as a civilization move forward and uncover those unknown, unexplored and seemingly impossible things if we are not open to change?
Some would argue that we don’t need to move forward, and to those I say, take a look around you. There are countries still battling wars, there is much racism, there is an increasing number of clinical depression among both children and adults, the environment is still being polluted heavily, and the list goes on.
Only in union can we make the change happen. This means collectively changing our attitudes toward new discoveries and a better tomorrow. But this change needs to start with us and changing ourselves first.
Since I love collecting quotes, I gathered quite a number of them on this specific matter. Here are some of them that I hope you will like:
Have you ever felt that you may be out of touch with yourself? How, no matter if you’re rich and have a perfect family and social life, there may still be something missing? Or you keep encountering negative people and situations? Don’t worry. It just means you are in tune with the external world but not your inner world. If this is your case, you may benefit from following a spiritual path.
Listening to what your body is telling you, observing the workings of your mind, following your instincts and intuition, practicing kindness and compassion to every living thing, and being open to changing your core beliefs, are some of the ways you can reach the higher Self.
I suggest focusing on one goal each month and read some noteworthy books to assist you on your journey.
Do you have any spiritual or uplifting quotes to share?
My favorite of this group is by far the Rumi quote.
