Awakening – Inspirational Quotations

“We can change our own life and ultimately change the world.”
~ Kristi Bowman

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
~ Albert  Einstein

“Life gives you exactly what you need to awaken.”
~ T. Scott McLeod

“We already have everything we need. There is no need for self-improvement. All these trips that we lay on ourselves — the heavy-duty fearing that we’re bad and hoping that we’re good, the identities that we so dearly cling to, the rage, the jealousy and the addictions of all kinds — never touch our basic wealth. They are like clouds that temporarily block the sun. But all the time our warmth and brilliance are right here. This is who we really are. We are one blink of an eye away from being fully awake.”
Pema Chödrön

“When you become a parent, you look at your parents differently. You look at being a child differently. It’s an awakening, a revelation that you have.”
~ Philip Seymour Hoffman

“Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
~ St. Francis of Assisi

“And then, some morning in the second week, the mind wakes, comes to life again. Not in a city sense — no — but beach-wise. It begins to drift, to play, to turn over in gentle careless rolls like those lazy waves on the beach. One never knows what chance treasures these easy unconscious rollers may toss up, on the smooth white sand of the conscious mind; what perfectly rounded stone, what rare shell from the ocean floor. Perhaps a channeled whelk, a moon shell, or even an argonaut.”
~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh
