#1

Yoga is not a therapy. In the West many psychological therapies are now prevalent, and many Western psychologists think that Yoga is also a therapy. It is not! It is a discipline. And what is the difference? This is the difference: a therapy is needed if you are ill, a therapy is needed if you are diseased, a therapy is needed if you are pathological. A discipline is needed even when you are healthy. Really, only when you are healthy can a discipline then help. It is not for pathological cases.

– Osho

#10

The word yoga is the same as the English word “yoke”. So in the New Testament when Jesus Christ says, “My yoke is easy and my burden is light,” my interpretation is that he’s referring to yoga. It means “union” – Union of the body, mind and the spirit as one continuum of consciousness.

– Deepak Chopra

10 Jiddu Krishnamurti Quotes About Love, Freedom, And Religion

Published

on

Jiddu Krishnamurti quotes image

Jiddu Krishnamurti is one of the most famous and influential Indian philosopher, speaker, and writer of the 20th century. At the same time, he denied belonging to any nationality, caste, religion or philosophical trend and spent most of his long life wandering around the world as a public speaker. Today we have selected the 10 most thought-provoking Jiddu Krishnamurti quotes about love, freedom, and religion.

10 Jiddu Krishnamurti Quotes

#1

“When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

#2

Krishnamurti quote about love image

“It is love alone that leads to right action. What brings order in the world is to love and let love do what it will.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

#3

“Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something – and it is only such love that can know freedom.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

#4

Krishnamurti Quote About Freedom Image

“It is truth that liberates, not your effort to be free.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

#5

“When I understand myself, I understand you, and out of that understanding comes love. Love is the missing factor; there is a lack of affection, of warmth in relationship; and because we lack that love, that tenderness, that generosity, that mercy in relationship, we escape into mass action which produces further confusion, further misery. We fill our hearts with blueprints for world reform and do not look to that one resolving factor which is love.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

#6

Krishnamurti quote about flag image

“We are very defensive, and therefore aggressive, when we hold on to a particular belief, dogmas, or when we worship our particular nationality, with the rag that is called the flag.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

#7

“To be free of all authority, of your own and that of another is to die to everything of yesterday so that your mind is always fresh, always young, innocent, full of vigour and passion. It is only in that state that one learns and observes. And for this, a great deal of awareness is required, actual awareness of what is going on inside yourself, without correcting it or telling it what it should or should not be, because the moment you correct it you have established another authority, a censor.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

#8

Jiddu Krishnamurti quote about nationality image

“Identification with the rag called the national flag is an emotional and sentimental factor and for that factor, you are willing to kill another – and that is called, the love of your country, love of the neighbor…? One can see that where sentiment and emotion come in, love is not.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

#9

“Do you know that even when you look at a tree and say, `That is an oak tree’, or `that is a banyan tree’, the naming of the tree, which is botanical knowledge, has so conditioned your mind that the word comes between you and actually seeing the tree? To come in contact with the tree you have to put your hand on it and the word will not help you to touch it.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

#10

“You say you love your wife. You depend on her; she has given you her body, her emotions, her encouragement, a certain feeling of security and well-being. Then she turns away from you; she gets bored or goes off with someone else, and your whole emotional balance is destroyed, and this disturbance, which you don’t like, is called jealousy. There is pain in it, anxiety, hate and violence. So what you are really saying is, ‘As long as you belong to me I love you but the moment you don’t I begin to hate you.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti

Discover The Bliss Of Unconditional Love With These Powerful Amma Quotes

Published

on

Amma quotes image

The qualities of Love, compassion, empathy, and tolerance… under the pressure of modern life, have almost disappeared. Infinite compassion is the nature of God. The Creator doesn’t reject anyone. His heart is like the vast heaven embracing the universe with all its beings. The never-ending stream of His love and compassion embraces every being in the world.

All the great saints and sages of the past and the present are incarnations of divine Love and Compassion. Anyone who meets Mātā Amṛtānandamayī Devī (affectionately called Amma, or Mother) can experience this all-consuming and all-embracing love of God. This Divine woman heals people’s hearts with her loving embrace and compassion. She awakens people, directing them to their fundamental unity.

In this article, I want to share with you my favorite Amma quotes that I believe can inspire people to be more loving and compassionate. In our crazy world, we must learn to find time to take a pause for a moment and think: “Am I too involved in the games of my Ego? Have I forgotten to act from the heart?” Amma quotes are a great tool to get yourself back to the heart point and remember the love and compassion that should always be the main driving force in our lives.

Amma Philosophy

amma portrait image

There are no barriers to Amma’s compassion. All people are equal for her no matter what nationality, race, caste, or religion they belong to. Amma’s philosophy is simple: there is a divine nature residing in everything – in every person, plant, and animal. The perception of this unity is the essence of spirituality and the means of ending all suffering.

Through this simple yet powerful message, Amma transforms our world with every embrace. Over the past 33 years, Amma has physically embraced more than 24 million people (wow!). Amma teaching is universal. Whenever she is asked about her religion, she replies that her religion is Love. She does not ask anyone to believe in God or change their faith, but only to explore their own true nature and believe in themselves.

Let her divine life serve as a guiding star for all those who seek to realize the transcendent Peace and Bliss of self-realization.

Amma Quotes

#1

Amma Quote Image

“When love becomes divine love, compassion also fills the heart. Love is the inner feeling and compassion is its expression. Compassion is expressing your heartfelt concern for someone — for a suffering human being. Therefore, love and compassion are two sides of the same coin; they coexist.”

#2

“Only when human beings are able to perceive and acknowledge the Self in each other can there be real peace.”

#3

“Compassion is Consciousness expressed through your actions and words. Compassion is the art of non-hurting. Compassion cannot hurt. Compassion cannot hurt anyone because compassion is Consciousness manifested. Consciousness cannot hurt anyone. Just as the sky cannot hurt anyone and space cannot hurt anyone, the manifestation of Consciousness, compassion, cannot hurt anyone. One who has compassion can only be compassionate.”

#4

“For me, everything in creation is God, there is nothing but God. Every single object is a wonder for me.”

#5

Amma compassion quote image

“Compassion does not see the faults of others. It does not see the weaknesses of people. It makes no distinction between good and bad people. Compassion cannot draw a line between two countries, two faiths or two religions. Compassion has no ego; thus there is no fear, lust or passion. Compassion simply forgives and forgets. Compassion is like a passage. Everything passes through it. Nothing can stay there. Compassion is love expressed in all its fullness.”

#6

“Love can accomplish anything and everything. Love can cure diseases. Love can heal wounded hearts and transform human minds. Through love, one can overcome all obstacles. Love can help us renounce all physical, mental and intellectual tensions and thereby bring peace and happiness.”

#7

“There are three types of people in this world. There are those who have nothing; then there are those who are just scraping by, and the third type is those who have far more than they need. Now, if those who belong to the third category don’t do anything to help those of the first two categories, then Amma would say that those who belong to the third category, who are supposed to be rich, are, in fact, the poorest of the poor. Those who have far more than they need should have eyes with which to see the suffering of others; they should have ears to hear the distressed calls for help; they should have a loving heart with which to feel compassion towards those who suffer, and they should have willing hands with which to lend their assistance to those in need.”

#8

“We have to regain our original faces rather than wearing masks. … We go more and more after the external world and we miss the inner self.”

#9

“Do your work and perform your duties with all your heart. Try to work selflessly with love. Pour yourself into whatever you do. Then you will feel and experience beauty and love in every field of work. Love and beauty are within you. Try to express them through your actions and you will definitely touch the very source of bliss.”

#10

Amma suffering quote image

“True worship of God is rendering help to those who are suffering.”

#11

“This little world of ours should evolve until it becomes the whole universe. As it grows, we can see our problems slowly dissolving away.”

#12

“The first step in the spiritual life is to have compassion. A person who is kind and loving never needs to go searching for God. God rushes toward any heart that beats with compassion-it is God’s favorite place.”

#13

“Loving others is always good.”

#14

“If we penetrate deeply into all aspects and all areas of life, we will find that hidden behind everything is love. We will discover that love is the force, the power and inspiration behind every word and every action. This applies to all people, irrespective of race, caste, creed, sect, religion or of what work people do.”

#15

Amma quote love image

“Whether it is spiritual love or worldly love, love remains love. The difference is only in-depth and degree.”

#16

“There’s no practical use of getting upset.”

#17

“When there are no desires, there are no sorrows. We must be able to love without expecting anything in return, or without expecting anything from anyone else. We must always be thinking that we are the servants of all.”

#18

“No one is completely bad in this world. However bad someone is said to be, there will be something good in him. One of you could see the good in a murderer, a robber, and a prostitute. If there is goodness in us, we will also see it on others. Those are the kind of eyes we need.”

#19

“The common expression is ‘I love you.’ But instead of ‘I love you,’ it would be better to say, ‘I am love — I am the embodiment of pure love.’ Remove the I and you, and you will find that there is only love. It is as if love is imprisoned between the I and you. Remove the I and you, for they are unreal; they are self-imposed walls that don’t exist. The gulf between I and you is the ego. When the ego is removed the distance disappears and the I and you also disappear. They merge to become one — and that is love. You lend the I and you their reality. Withdraw your support and they will disappear. Then you will realize, not that ‘I love you,’ but that ‘I am that all-embracing love.’”

law of attraction quotes image

Regardless of age, nationality or religious belief, we are all subject to the Universal laws, including the Law of Attraction. In simple terms, the Law of attraction is the ability to attract everything we focus on into our lives. This Law uses the power of the mind to translate everything that is in our thoughts into reality. Due to the Law of attraction, everything that can be imagined and kept in mind can be achieved. And if you diligently get to work with your own thoughts, you will begin to attract the circumstances that when acted upon, will bring about your desired outcome.

In this article, I want to share with you my favorite Law of attraction quotes. Why the quotes? Simply because quotes can help us feel inspired and motivated; reminding us of the most important aspects of the Law of attraction, and helping us learn from the wisdom of many great people who have mastered this law in action. I also like to refer to the quotes when I seek support and comfort in difficult moments of life or when I feel that I need a reminder that my destiny is in my own hands and I can make anything possible!

I hope you’ll enjoy my favorite Law of attraction quotes and find them inspiring!
