At TheQuoteWell, our mission has always been to inspire others through the power of the written word. With this aim in mind, we have curated thousands of inspirational quotes to be shared through our webpage, social media outlets, and books. Of all the quotes we’ve assessed, enlightenment quotes are some of the true jewels we’ve collected throughout this undertaking. In our opinion, enlightenment quotes are the most inspirational quotes of all because they contain the essence of Truth. After all, what could be more inspiring than to make others aware of their own divinity?
We invite you to contemplate the quotes below deeply. Some may not resonate with you initially, while others may hint at a truth that seems somehow familiar. This is Divine Truth. It cannot be taught because it is already known. It cannot be learned, but only remembered. Incorporate these concepts thoroughly into your being and they will grow. Just as a flower grows effortlessly, so does the awakened mind continue towards perfection.
Twenty great Enlightenment Quotes:
I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I’ve been knocking from the inside. ~Rumi
You are an aperture through which the universe is looking at and exploring itself. ~Alan Watts
Stillness is the altar of spirit. ~Paramahansa Yogananda
There is no holy life. There is no war between good and evil. There is no sin and no redemption. None of these things matter to the real you. But they all matter hugely to the false you, the one who believes in the separate self. You have tried to take your separate self, with all its loneliness and anxiety and pride, to the door of enlightenment. But it will never go through, because it is a ghost. ~Deepak Chopra
Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to ‘die before you die’ and find that there is no death. ~Eckhart Tolle
You have no birthday because you have always lived; you were never born, and never will die. You are not the child of the people you call mother and father, but their fellow -adventurer on a bright journey to understand the things that are. ~Richard Bach
Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time, (past and future), the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is. ~Eckhart Tolle
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. ~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
The body is literally manufactured and sustained by mind. ~Paramahansa Yogananda
The Ego, however, is not who you really are. The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants control, and it is sustained by power, because it lives in fear. ~Deepak Chopra
You are a divine being. You matter, you count. You come from realms of unimaginable power and light, and you will return to those realms. ~Terence McKenna
In reality there are no separate events. Life moves along like water; it’s all connected to the source of the river, which is connected to the mouth and the ocean. ~Alan Watts
The power of unfulfilled desires is the root of all man’s slavery. ~Paramahansa Yogananda
Paradoxical as it may seem, the purposeful life has no content, no point. It hurries on and on, and misses everything. Not hurrying, the purposeless life misses nothing, for it is only when there is no goal and no rush that the human senses are fully open to receive the world. ~Alan Watts
It doesn’t matter if the water is cold or warm if you’re going to have to wade through it anyway. ~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “Yes” to life and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you. ~Eckhart Tolle
The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud and it’s fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question: “Is this real, or is this just a ride?” And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, “Hey, don’t worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.” ~Bill Hicks
