50 Quotes About Empaths And Highly Sensitive People

#1

Empath quote image

Empaths be like… I don’t just listen to your words. I listen to your use of words, your tone, your body movements, your eyes, your subtle facial expressions. I interpret your silences – I can hear everything you don’t say in words.
– Unknown

#2

Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.”
– Anthon St. Maarten

#3

“As an empath, it’s vital that you learn how to hold space for your emotions, even the most painful ones. By anchoring yourself in your breath, you can learn how to witness the emotional energy of others within you, without attaching yourself to these sensations.”
– Mateo Sol

#4

Intuitive empaths have a more profound grasp of other people’s emotions. Due to this rare trait, they feel the thrill of their surroundings more intensely than others do. In turn, it is almost impossible for them to ignore these senses. Luckily, unlike other empaths, intuitive empaths can control what and how this energy affects them. They can direct this distinct talent towards helping others.”
– Katya Ki

#5

“It’s this thing I have. I’m sorry if it scared you. I feel other people’s feelings. I imagine crumbling insides and splitting hearts, goodbyes that hang in the air before they break into tiny pieces. I hear words that aren’t said, the echoes of lonely hallways and hollow footsteps. I hear sobs that soak pillowcases when all the lights are out and the world is sleeping. I carry this inside of me, all of it.

I knew you paced the floor at night, trying to walk over all the things you didn’t want me to know. But I felt every wound you ever endured when I rested against you. I felt the ache that I have, deep inside of me, on your lips. Every time we kissed, I tasted a lifetime of tangled paths and bumpy roads woven with joined hands. Love isn’t blind, you see. I felt everything you were and could be, if only you stopped hiding in the same darkness you sheltered me from. I knew who you could become if someone loved you just right. I’m sorry if that scared you.

Just in case you were wondering, I still love you and I’ll keep the lights dim. Come home.”
– Jacqueline Simon Gunn

#6

Empaths did not come into this world to be victims, we came to be warriors. Be brave. Stay strong. We need all hands on deck.”
– Anthon St. Maarten

#7

Heyoka empaths act as mirrors of our persona. They exploit light energies to open people’s minds and heal. They also rarely take things seriously. Heyokas are excellent at making jokes, to make light of a situation. However, when they take their mask off, it itches.”
– Katya Ki

#8

“Love, to empaths, isn’t just a shallow experience based on looks, social status or great sex. Instead, love is something that comes from the very heart and soul of what an empath is. Love is intense passion, unconditional devotion, and absolute fierce vulnerability.”
– Aletheia Luna

#9

quote about empathy image

Empathy is about finding echoes of another person in yourself”
– Mohsin Hamid

#10

“The struggle of my life created empathy – I could relate to pain, being abandoned, having people not love me.”
– Oprah Winfrey

#11

“The sad thing that many of us empaths don’t realize is that often our desire to heal others is a disguised cry for help for our own healing. Because many of us weren’t taught how to value or nurture ourselves at a young age, we tend to unconsciously seek out our own healing in the healing of others.”
– Mateo Sol

#12

“As empaths, our high level of sensitivity means that we are prone to feeling like eternal outsiders who are in the world but not quite of the world.”
– Aletheia Luna

#13

Empathy is really the opposite of spiritual meanness. It’s the capacity to understand that every war is both won and lost. And that someone else’s pain is as meaningful as your own.
– Barbara Kingsolver

#14

Empaths feel more deeply, more intensely, and more persistently than those around us. We even feel what other people are afraid to feel within themselves.”
– Mateo Sol

#15

“As a heyoka empath, your mind and heart will function independently. It is possible to discern over difficult situations without your emotions coming to play. This does not necessarily imply that you are heartless or cold, but rather that you can make sound decisions without your emotions affecting you. It is quite elusive telling what a heyoka empath is feeling unless you are one yourself. Heyokas can detect flaws in people around them but they won’t openly disclose them.”
– Katya Ki

#16

“Why is sensitivity perceived as being dangerous? When we’re sensitive, we feel things we were taught not to feel. When we’re sensitive, we are completely open to attack. When we’re sensitive, we are awake and in touch with our hearts – and this can be very threatening to the status quo indeed.”
– Aletheia Luna

#17

“Everything in existence is energy and gives off waves. Empaths are merely magnets for those energy waves, some feeling small crests while others live bombarded with tidal waves.”
– Jennifer Soldner

#18

“Dear empath:
You are a being of immense depth, wisdom, and compassion. You are a pioneer and trailblazer of humanity, a model for others on how to be sensitive and powerful. All the strength and love you need is already within you, waiting to be discovered.”
– Mateo Sol

#19

Empaths don’t see the world as other people do. They process things in a completely different pattern and think outside the box. Relating well with heyoka empaths requires that you stay open-minded. A heyoka will focus on the light side of a situation. And that’s how they come up with solutions. From the Native Americans’ perspective, heyokas would disrupt other people to startle them or shift their point of focus.”
– Katya Ki

#20

Quote About Highly Sensitive People Image

“Now, more than ever, our society is in need of sensitive and empathic people. Now, more than ever, the human race needs to go inwards and connect with the Soul again. As natural-born healers, intuitives, and mentors, it is not only our responsibility but also our destiny to help humanity heal.”
– Aletheia Luna

#21

“I believe empathy is the most essential quality of civilization.”
– Roger Ebert

#22

“Intuition is a wonderful gift but it can be both a blessing and a curse. If you can easily tune in to the grief of another, it is very easy to lose your way if you have not yet resolved your own present or past trauma and grief. If you have not healed from your own grief and you turn around and give all you have to give, you will find yourself drowning. Soon there will be nothing left of you.”
– Kate McGahan

#23

“It is so important for us as empaths to maintain a sense of connectedness with life. When we put up walls to protect ourselves, we end up exhausting, victimizing, and alienating ourselves. It is far more satisfying, effective, and healthy to work with our gifts, rather than against them.”
– Aletheia Luna

#24

“The highly sensitive [introverted] tend to be philosophical or spiritual in their orientation, rather than materialistic or hedonistic. They dislike small talk. They often describe themselves as creative or intuitive. They dream vividly, and can often recall their dreams the next day. They love music, nature, art, physical beauty. They feel exceptionally strong emotions–sometimes acute bouts of joy, but also sorrow, melancholy, and fear. Highly sensitive people also process information about their environments–both physical and emotional – unusually deeply. They tend to notice subtleties that others miss – another person’s shift in mood, say, or a lightbulb burning a touch too brightly.”
– Susan Cain

#25

“The very best thing we can do for others isn’t soaking up their pain, it is actually holding space for them. Holding space for a person means giving them the room to grieve or vent while still maintaining our own boundaries.”
– Mateo Sol

#26

Heyokas thrive when they are away from crowds. As with all other types of empaths, crowds drain their energy. It is impossible to control the energy of everyone around them and that is why heyokas prefer being in their own company. Alone time gives a heyoka enough time to decompress from all the negative energy they take in and re-energize.”
– Katya Ki

#27

“Resisting, identifying with, and suppressing emotions is the number one reason why we become so sick and overwhelmed as empaths. But the more embracing and accommodating you are towards the emotions you feel, without identifying with them, the more quickly they leave.”
– Aletheia Luna

#28

There’s always someone in your life that asks and expects an awful lot from you. And because you are a super-sensitive person with a great capacity for empathy and kindness, you comply. But sometimes you take it too far. You give more than you should. You are loyal to people who don’t deserve your loyalty. And you stand by those you care for even when they have deserted you emotionally. When this “person” asks again, do yourself a favor instead, and say NO.
– Unknown

#29

“I grew up weird – very sensitive and highly inhibited. I felt like I was born in the wrong time zone to the wrong people at the wrong place.”
– Marla Gibbs

#30

“There are only two kinds of people who can drain your energy: those you love, and those you fear. In both instances, it is you who let them in. They did not force their way into your aura, or pry their way into your reality experience.”
– Anthon St. Maarten

#31

“Unfortunately, in the empath community, creating boundaries is often approached with a fearful mindset instead of the desire to become fully mature and individuated beings. This fearful mindset often gives rise to terms such as “protection,” “cloaking,” “shielding,” and so forth. Instead of using empowering terms, we empaths tend to use phrases that suggest minimizing or hiding away from others instead of stepping into our natural power.”
– Aletheia Luna

#32

quote about empaths and sensitive people image

Some say I’m too sensitive but the truth is I just feel too much. Every word, every action and every energy goes straight to my heart.
– Unknown

#33

“The shamanic Quechuan word for empath is “Qawaq” which means “one who sees.” It comes from the verb “Qaway” which means “to see” the living energy. The Incas believe that people born with the ability to experience the energy of others have a great blessing as they are able to connect to their Souls and the Spirit of existence much more easily than others.”
– Mateo Sol

#34

“As empaths, we are not here to be sponges or enablers. We are here to be helpers, guides, and supporters.”
– Aletheia Luna

#35

“Sensitive people care when the world doesn’t because we understand waiting to be rescued and no one shows up. We have rescued ourselves, so many times that we have become self-taught in the art of compassion for those forgotten.”
– Shannon L. Alder

#36

“Yes, the people around us can be insensitive, narcissistic, toxic, and sometimes even abusive, but it is up to us to take that energy on or let it flow through us. No one is responsible for taking away our happiness but us.”
– Aletheia Luna

#37

“Sometimes your experience with a heyoka empath may leave you dissatisfied. This is because heyokas are mirrors and only reflect that which is presented to them. So if you project negative energy the same will be reflected back to you. This honest reflection will show you what you need to work on to become a better version of you.”
– Katya Ki

#38

“I don’t know if it’s because my sensitivity is through the roof, but I can’t stand contrived dialogue anymore.”
– Jeff Baena

#39

“As highly sensitive empaths, we are particularly prone to experiencing the Dark Night of the Soul. The less defined our sense of self is and the more toxic energy we take on from others, the more we are prone to losing touch with our Souls.”
– Aletheia Luna

#40

I hate having to do small talk. I’d rather talk about deep subjects. I’d rather talk about meditation, or the world, or the trees or animals, than small, inane, you know, banter.
– Ellen Degeneres

#41

“Because empaths can see the world through their partner’s point of view, they frequently tend to completely mesh with the viewpoints of their abusers. So when an empath is told that he or she is uncaring from a narcissistic partner, the empath will genuinely feel as though they are a horrible person due to the fact that they can feel and embody the emotions of their partners.”
– Aletheia Luna

#42

“Many people confuse empaths for weak people who are nothing but scared. The opposite is true. When surrounded by positive energy they flourish into lovely creatures that are so much fun to hang around.”
– Katya Ki

#43

“Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding. The highest form of knowledge… is empathy, for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another’s world. It requires profound purpose larger than the self kind of understanding.”
– Bill Bullard

#44

my personality confuses people image

My personality confuses people. I enjoy being alone, a lot, but I’m very outgoing and social. My environment dictates how I behave. Sometimes I’m loud, sometimes I’m quiet. I read the energy and adjust. Sometimes I want to tune up and sometimes I just need a book and alone time.
– Sylvester McNutt III

#45

Empaths don’t act fake. They get quiet.
– Jane Lightworker

#46

Note to empath:
Observe, don’t absorb.
– Unknown

#47

I am sensitive. I love deeply. I think deeply about life. I am honest, loyal, and true. I appreciate the simple things. I will not change or harden to this world. It is this sensitivity, perception, sincerity, awareness, affection, and gentle grace that makes me who I am.
– Unknown

#49

All empaths can feel if someone is genuine or not. Unaware empaths often disregard the red flags. Empowered empaths listen to their intuition right away.
– Jane Lightworker

#50

I am an empath. I can hear what you are not saying.
– Unknown

47 Quotes To Free Yourself From Victim Mentality

#1

Victim mentality quote image

“Today is a new day. Don’t let your history interfere with your destiny! Let today be the day you stop being a victim of your circumstances and start taking action towards the life you want. You have the power and the time to shape your life. Break free from the poisonous victim mentality and embrace the truth of your greatness. You were not meant for a mundane or mediocre life!” ― Steve Maraboli

#2

“There is a fine line between compassion and a victim mentality. Compassion though is a healing force and comes from a place of kindness towards yourself. Playing the victim is a toxic waste of time that not only repels other people, but also robs the victim of ever knowing true happiness.” – Bronnie Ware

#3

“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” – Jim Rohn

#4

“Some choose to believe that there is nothing they can do to solve their
problems, even when they in fact could. Victims seek to blame others for their problems or blame outside circumstances. This may make them feel better in the short term, but it leads to a life of anger, helplessness, and despair.” – Mark Manson

#5

“The difference between a professional victim and an empowered person is NOT what has happened to them, but the way in which they REACT to what has happened to them.” – Miya Yamanouchi

#6

“A victim evokes sympathy, right? Victims are not responsible, right? Victims have the moral high ground… someone else is causing the misery, right? Victims can easily justify why they are right. Victims allow themselves to be stuck in the status quo and they excel at seeing the faults in others, ignoring their own responsibility. They love to take others’ inventory of faults and are excellent at blaming. Victims become hypersensitive to real and perceived injustice, where any slight becomes a reason to reject. Victimization is the toxic wind blowing through families, fanning the fires of dysfunction.” – David W. Earle

#7

“The moment you take responsibility for everything in your life is the moment you can change anything in your life.” – Hal Elrod

#8

Wayne Dyer quote about personal responsibility image

“Everything you do is based on the choices you make. It’s not your parents, your past relationships, your job, the economy, the weather, an argument, or your age that is to blame. You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make. Period.” – Wayne Dyer

#9

“You relinquish your power when you blame others for situations in your life. The blame does not change the situation and only keeps you in a victim mentality. Accept that the situation occurred and find a way to transcend it and you will reclaim your power and become the victor.” – Nanette Mathews

#10

“We are stuck in the maize that we created. Most people keep complaining about being stuck rather than finding the way out, and they call themselves unlucky!” – Maddy Malhotra

#11

“Your complaints, your drama, your victim mentality, your whining, your blaming, and all of your excuses have NEVER gotten you even a single step closer to your goals or dreams. Let go of your nonsense. Let go of the delusion that you DESERVE better and go EARN it! Today is a new day!” – Steve Maraboli

#12

“You owe yourself everything you expect from others.” ― Nicky Verd

#13

“There are two different kinds of people in the world. There are people who instinctively look for every chance to be a “victim” and those who look for every chance to rise above—regardless of where they are in life and what’s happening around them. There are people who realize their ability to create (greatly influence) reality toward a positive direction for themselves and those around them, and unfortunately those who use this power we all have for destructive purposes for themselves and others—many times without even knowing what they’re doing or the power they have inside themselves. We are all powerful individuals. Let’s use that power to create something beautiful!” ― Christopher Hawke

#14

“Self-pity is spiritual suicide. It is an indefensible self-mutilation of the soul.” ― Anthon St. Maarten

#15

“Life is not compassionate towards victims. The trick is not to see yourself as one. It’s never too late! I know I’ve felt like the victim in various situations in my life, but, it’s never too late for me to realize that it’s my responsibility to stand on victorious ground and know that whatever it is I’m experiencing or going through, those are just the clouds rolling by while I stand here on the top of this mountain! This mountain called Victory! The clouds will come and the clouds will go, but the truth is that I’m high up here on this mountaintop that reaches into the sky! I am a victor. I didn’t climb up the mountain, I was born on top of it!” ― C. JoyBell C.

#16

victim mindset quote image

“The victim mindset dilutes the human potential. By not accepting personal responsibility for our circumstances, we greatly reduce our power to change them.” – Steve Maraboli

#17

“There is an expiry date on blaming your parents for steering you in the wrong direction; the moment you are old enough to take the wheel, responsibility lies with you.” – J.K. Rowling

#18

“Accept responsibility for your actions. Be accountable for your results. Take ownership for your mistakes.”

#19

“Who we become is the result of our disciplined actions.” – Brendon Burchard

#20

“One day I realized that everything that I get out of life, is exclusively a result of my actions. That is the day I became a man.” – Nav-Vii

#21

“The problem that we have with a victim mentality is that we forget to see the blessings of the day. Because of this, our spirit is poisoned instead of nourished.” – Steve Maraboli

#22

Empaths did not come into this world to be victims, we came to be warriors. Be brave. Stay strong. We need all hands on deck.” – Anthon St. Maarten

#23

“Because that happened to me when I was little, this is how I will now treat other people”; “Because so and so beat me up and hurt me a long time ago, that gives me the right to treat people the way I treat them, today”; “Because life was hard on me, life should be hard on everyone else around me”— does this sound/ look familiar? It’s called victim mentality. When people choose to be the direct product of everything that happened to them, the direct product of every single pair of hands that hurt them. And the world, to these people, must bend over backwards in order to accommodate their wounds. Some people don’t want to be loved; they just want to make the world pay.” – C. JoyBell C.

#24

negative thought patterns quotes image

“The power behind taking responsibility for your actions lies in putting an end to negative thought patterns. You no longer dwell on what went wrong or focus on whom you are going to blame. You don’t waste time building roadblocks to your success. Instead, you are set free and can now focus on succeeding.” – Lorii Myers

#25

“We all have a story. The difference is: do you use the story to empower yourself? Or do you use your story to keep yourself a victim? The question itself empowers you to change your life.” – Sunny Dawn Johnston

#26

“Victim mentality only creates helplessness, the most maddening, miserable and upsetting of mental states. In fact, it is commonly reported that nothing triggers madness like a sense of helplessness. It is a cousin of paranoia, a sense that the world is out to get you, that there is some opposition, some rivalry between you and the world. This is a warped, twisted mentality that offers no benefits, and, more importantly, is manifestly false.” – Armstrong Williams

#27

“How would your life be different if…You stopped validating your victim mentality? Let today be the day…You shake off your self-defeating drama and embrace your innate ability to recover and achieve.” – Steve Maraboli

#28

“When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.” – Eckhart Tolle

#29

“Taking personal accountability is a beautiful thing because it gives us complete control of our destinies.” – Heather Schuck

#30

“Victims declare,“The world is responsible for me,” and never do anything to better their quality of life.” – Henry Cloud

#31

“At first you might wonder what you did to deserve such treatment. Nothing, probably, so that doesn’t matter. What matters is that, eventually, the abuse becomes the status quo. It’s no longer about the whats and whys (“what did I do?” “why are they doing this?”) but the whens and hows (“when are they going to do it?” “how are they going to get me?”). Persecution becomes inevitable, inescapable. And once you get into the victim mindset, you’re f**ked. The bullies don’t even need to hurt you now; your poor, warped, pathetic brain is doing half the work for them.” – Nenia Campbell

#32

Mahatma Gandhi quote image

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.” – Mahatma Gandhi

#33

“In life, you can either be a victim or you can be a survivor. It’s a mindset.” – Clyde Lee Dennis

#34

“Stop validating your victim mentality. Shake off your self-defeating drama and embrace your innate ability to recover and achieve.” – Steve Maraboli

#35

“You have power over your mind —​ not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” – Marcus Aurelius

#36

“The choice is yours in every moment to create beauty or misery, happiness, or pain.” – Ralph Smart

#37

“If what you are able to give to others, in this life, is only proportionate to what you received from people in your past— it only means one thing. You are a victim of life’s circumstances, a direct and utter equivalent of what has been done to you. Rise above and become more! Be better than what happened to you.” – C. JoyBell C.

#38

“The trap of resentment. It is probably the worst mental prison in the world. It is the inability to let go of anger and the perceived or real injustices we suffer. Some people let one or two, or maybe ten unpleasant experiences poison the rest of their lives. They let their anger ferment and rot their personality. They end up seeing themselves as victims of their parents, teachers, their peers and preachers.” – Ayaan Hirsi Ali

#39

“As I’d seen over and again, people who see themselves as victims sometimes don’t notice when they become oppressors.” – Souad Mekhennet

#40

#43

“I’d rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right.” – Albert Einstein

#44

“The victim mindset will have you dancing with the devil, then complaining that you’re in hell.” – Steve Maraboli

#45

“It is only when you take responsibility for your life that you discover how powerful you truly are.” – Allanah Hunt

#46

“If you own this story you get to write the ending.” – Brene Brown

40 Inspirational Sadhguru Quotes On Life

#1

Sadhguru quote on life image

“The most beautiful moments in life are moments when you are expressing your joy, not when you are seeking it.”
― Sadhguru

#2

“Every moment there are a million miracles happening around you: a flower blossoming, a bird tweeting, a bee humming, a raindrop falling, a snowflake wafting along the clear evening air. There is magic everywhere. If you learn how to live it, life is nothing short of a daily miracle.”
― Sadhguru

#3

“So, as long as your inner life is enslaved to external situations, it will remain a precarious condition. There is no other way for it to be. What then is the way out? The way out is a very simple change in direction. You just need to see that the source and basis of your experience is within you. Human experience may be stimulated or catalyzed by external situations, but the source is within. Pain or pleasure, joy or misery, agony or ecstasy, happens only inside you. Human folly is that people are always trying to extract joy from the outside. You may use the outside as a stimulus or trigger, but the real thing always comes from within.”
― Sadhguru

#4

“If you resist change, you resist life.”
― Sadhguru

#5

“The planet is spinning on time: not a small event. All the galaxies are managing fine; the whole cosmos is doing great. But you have one nasty little thought crawling through your head, and it is a bad day! The problem is you are living in a psychological space that bears no connection with reality. And you are insecure, because it can collapse at any moment.”
― Sadhguru

#6

“Learning to listen is the essence of intelligent living.”
― Sadhguru

#7

“To be human means you can mold situations you are living in the way you want them. But today most people in the world are molded by the situations in which they exist. This is simply because they live in reaction to situations they are placed in. The inevitable question is, “Why was I placed in such a situation? Isn’t it my destiny?” Whatever we do not want to take responsibility for, whatever we cannot make sense of logically, we label “destiny.” It is a consoling word, but disempowering. To mold situations the way you want them you must first know who you are. The crux of the matter is that you don’t yet know who you are. Who you are is not the sum total of accumulations you have made. Everything that you currently know as “myself” is just an accumulation. Your body is just an accumulation of food. Your mind is just an accumulation of impressions gathered through the five senses. What you accumulate can be yours, but it can never be you.”
― Sadhguru

#8

Sadhguru about life image

“To live totally means to explore life in its full depth and dimension.”
― Sadhguru

#9

“If you want to become life sensitive, a simple process that you do is this: make whatever you think and whatever you feel less important. Try and see for one day. Suddenly you will feel the breeze, the rain, the flowers and the people, everything in a completely different way. Suddenly the life in you becomes much more active and alive for your experience.”
― Sadhguru

#10

“I understood that being loving and compassionate is not an idea. To live in empathy is not some esoteric principle. This is the way a human being is made. If you do not identify with anything you have accumulated over a period of time, including your body and mind, you will be able to experience this.”
― Sadhguru

#11

“There is so much adventure that only youth can experience. Youth is not the time to languish in pleasure – youth is the time for exploration and adventure.”
― Sadhguru

#12

“Everything that ever happened to you, you experienced right within you. Light and darkness, pain and pleasure, agony and ecstasy—all of it happened within you. If someone touches your hand right now, you may think you are experiencing their hand, but the fact of the matter is you are only experiencing the sensations in your own hand. The whole experience is contained within. All human experience is one hundred percent self-created.”
― Sadhguru

#13

“If you think hundred percent logically, there is really no possibility of life.”
― Sadhguru

#14

“People have gotten used to living a botched-up life — to be anxious, insecure, hateful, jealous, and in various states of unpleasantness through the day — slowly humanity has begun to see it as normal. None of these things are normal. These are abnormalities. Once you accept them as part of life they become normal because the majority has joined the gang of unpleasantness. They are all saying, “Unpleasantness is normal. Being nasty to each other is normal. Being nasty to myself is normal.” Someone trusted that you would be doing good things at least to yourself and said, “Do unto others what you do unto yourself.” I am telling you, never do unto others what you are doing to yourself! By being with people, I know what they are doing to themselves is the worst thing. Fortunately, they are not doing such horrible things to others. Only once in a while, they are giving a dose to others, but to themselves, they are giving it throughout the day.”
― Sadhguru

Sadhguru saying on life image

“The more you try to be special, the more you get hurt. Just be, just melt and become part of the wind around you, the earth around you, become a part of everything. You’re here only for a while. At least when you’re in a place like this, where nobody is going to trample on you, let your defenses down.”
― Sadhguru

#16

“Being responsible is taking ownership of your life. It means you have taken the first radical step to becoming a complete human being—fully conscious and fully human. In taking responsibility and beginning the journey toward conscious living, you are putting an end to the age-old patterns of assigning blame outward or heavenward. You have begun the greatest adventure life has to offer: the voyage inward.”
― Sadhguru

#17

“The quality of your life depends on how well you manage your body, your mind, your emotion, your situations, your home, your communities, nations, your life in general and the world.”
― Sadhguru

#18

“Our lives become beautiful not because we are perfect. Our lives become beautiful because we put our heart into what we are doing. It doesn’t matter what we are doing. Whether we are sweeping the floor, or managing the country, or whatever we are doing. If we are putting our heart into what we are doing, it is beautiful to be doing that activity. Living in an atmosphere where people are passionate about what they are doing itself is highly enriching.”
― Sadhguru

#19

“To program the calories you must consume and the number of hours you must sleep is a foolish way to handle life.”
― Sadhguru

#20

“Modern physicists have accepted that all existence is fundamentally energy. But now they also acknowledge that there is something else that they have no instrument to measure. They have begun to realize that there is a dimension of energy that seems to hold everything together. They recognize its existence, but have no clue to its nature. Since they are not able to perceive it, they call it ‘dark energy’. For now they concede that it constitutes 73 per cent of the universe. (It will take time and evolution for them to see that it is, in fact, a lot more than that!) They also tell us that at the centre of our galaxy, and presumably of several others, is a ‘black hole’ which is constantly sucking creation in. At the centre of a black hole, they say, is a singularity, a place where creation and destruction happen simultaneously. In fact, scientists seem just one step short of saying: Shi-va!”
― Sadhguru

#21

“How the human system is happening, in the same way the universe has happened. In the same way that the micro is happening, that is how the macro has happened. If you look at the micro and perceive it, you will also know existence.”
― Sadhguru

#22

Sadhguru quote on celebration image

“If you are a little playful with life, every moment is a celebration.”
― Sadhguru

#23

“Every seed goes through the tremendous struggle of losing itself – losing its safety and integrity and becoming vulnerable to every outside force that’s around. But without that vulnerability, without the breaking, without the shedding of the shell, life won’t sprout.”
― Sadhguru

#24

“Do you understand? Man needs entertainment simply to hide his madness. If he was perfectly sane, he would not need entertainment. He could just sit and watch this bamboo grow. He does not really need entertainment.”
― Sadhguru

#25

“Life has no use at all, declared Adiyogi. It is simply a phenomenon. Little acts have purpose. But life is not framed within the narrow grid of utility. It is beyond frames. It is beyond grids. It is beyond utility. If you have a taste of this existence beyond purpose, of life beyond sense, you are enlightened.”
― Sadhguru

#26

“I am not interested in sending people to heaven. I am interested in making people in such a way that, even if they go to hell, nobody can make them suffer. That’s freedom, isn’t it? “I want to go to heaven, I want to go to heaven,” is a huge bondage. Suppose you land in the wrong place. Suppose someone hijacked your airplane on the way to heaven. He didn’t crash it; he just landed it in the wrong place. You’re finished, aren’t you? You’re always living with something that can be taken away from you by somebody or something. True liberation is when nobody can take away anything from you.”
― Sadhguru

#27

“Why do we refer to the mind as a circus? A circus is not a mess; a circus is a very coordinated activity deliberately made to look like a mess. On one level it is a mess, but on another, it is a highly coordinated activity.”
― Sadhguru

#28

“Modern science tells us that all of existence is just energy manifesting itself in different ways and in different forms. This means that the same energy that can sit here as a rock can lie there as mud, can stand up as a tree, can run like a dog—or be here reading this book, as you. So, you are essentially a morsel of energy that is part of the much larger energy system of the universe. The cosmos is just one big organism. Your life is not independent of it. You cannot live without the world because there is a very deep moment-to-moment transaction between the two of you.”
― Sadhguru

#29

“Death is a fiction created by people who live their lives in total unawareness. There is only life, life and life alone, moving from one dimension to another, another dimension to another.”
― Sadhguru

#30

Sadhguru on jealousy image

“Resentment, anger, jealousy, pain, hurt, and depression are poisons that you drink but expect someone else to die. Life does not work that way. Most people take lifetimes to understand this simple truth.”
― Sadhguru

#31

“Life should touch you, even if life smothers you, it’s better than remaining untouched by life.”
― Sadhguru

#32

“Stress is not because of work—this is important to remember. Everybody thinks their job is stressful. No job is stressful. There are many jobs that could present challenging situations. There could be nasty bosses, insecure colleagues, emergency rooms, impossible deadlines—or you might even find yourself in the middle of a war zone! But these are not inherently stressful. It is our compulsive reaction to the situations in which we are placed that causes stress. Stress is a certain level of internal friction. One can easily lubricate the inner mechanism with some amount of inner work and awareness. So, it is your inability to handle your own system that is stressing you out. On some level, you do not know how to handle your body, mind, and emotions; that is the problem.”
― Sadhguru

#33

“When most people say “life,” they mean the accessories of life—their work, their family, their relationships, the homes they live in, the cars they drive, the clothes they wear, or the gods they pray to.”
― Sadhguru

#34

“Many senseless people who don’t even know how they should live are going on producing more children. They have not even learned how they should live. Forget about enlightenment; they don’t even know how to keep their physical body! They don’t know what the human form is. They don’t know how to keep their emotions; they don’t know how to keep their mind in balance. Why are these people going on producing children?”
― Sadhguru

#35

“Life is a circus when your intellect and your body alone are involved. Life is a dance, when the intelligence begins to play its role.”
― Sadhguru

#36

“To experience the ultimate you have to be willing to obliterate the self-created boundaries of individuality, you have to be willing to dissolve. That state of unbounded freedom is a state of oneness with Shiva – an unconditioned state beyond physical experience, beyond imaginative speculation, beyond all conceptual understanding.”
― Sadhguru

#37

“The most horrific things in life can be a source of nourishment if you accept, “I am responsible for the way I am now.” It is possible to transform the greatest adversity into a stepping-stone for personal growth. If you take one hundred percent responsibility for the way you are now, a brighter tomorrow is a possibility. But if you take no responsibility for the present—if you blame your parents, your friend, your husband, your girlfriend, your colleagues for the way you are—you have forsaken your future even before it comes.”
― Sadhguru

#38

“Most people will grow only with pain, not with pleasure. It’s unfortunate, but that’s the truth. Generally people only go down with pleasure. They don’t go up with pleasure. Please see, the quality of a human being is like this: when life offers more and more pleasures to a man, he doesn’t grow. He goes down. In terms of the real quality of a human being, only when suffering comes, when pain comes, does a man stand up as a human being.”
― Sadhguru

#39

“As your likes and dislikes become stronger, as your identifications become stronger with one thing or another, all that you are doing is excluding existence. If I say, “I like this very much,” in a big way I am excluding the rest of existence at that moment. So the stronger it becomes, the deeper the exclusion becomes. The very process of liberation is to include, not to exclude. In exclusion, you become trapped. In inclusion, you become liberated.”
― Sadhguru

#40

“If you are constantly facing new situations, it means you are living a life of growth and great possibilities.”
― Sadhguru

There is more than enough power. There is more than enough love. There’s more than enough joy. All of this begins to come through a mind that is aware of its own infinite nature. There is enough for everyone. If you believe it, if you can see it, if you act from it, it will show up for you. That’s the truth.” – Michael Beckwith
