60 Paramahansa Yogananda Quotes

#1

“You must not let your life run in the ordinary way; do something that nobody else has done, something that will dazzle the world. Show that God’s creative principle works in you.”
Yogananda

#2

“Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself.”
Yogananda

#3

“Make up your mind that you will be happy whether you are rich or poor, healthy or unhealthy, happily married or unhappily married, young or old, smiling or crying. Don’t wait for yourself, your family, or your surroundings to change before you can be happy within yourself. Make up your mind to be happy within yourself, right now, whatever you are, or wherever you are.”
Yogananda

#4

“Be afraid of nothing. Hating none, giving love to all, feeling the love of God, seeing His presence in everyone, and having but one desire – for His constant presence in the temple of your consciousness – that is the way to live in this world.”
―Yogananda

#5

“Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.”
Yogananda

#6

“If you criticize others judgmentally, rather than simply commenting on their behavior impartially, that shows that you have their faults to work on in yourself. By criticizing others, moreover, you increase those faults in yourself. What you condemn in others, you will have to experience, someday, yourself. That is the karmic law. In that way, people are taught compassion.”
Yogananda

#7

“Live each moment completely and the future will take care of itself. Fully enjoy the wonder and beauty of each moment.”
Yogananda

#8

“Forget the past, for it is gone from your domain! Forget the future, for it is beyond your reach! Control the present! Live supremely well now! This is the way of the wise.”
Yogananda

#9

“It takes long time-many incarnations of right action, good company, the help of the guru, self-awakening, wisdom, and meditation-for man to regain his soul consciousness of immortality. To reach this state of Self-realization, each man must practice meditation to transfer his consciousness from the limited body to the unlimited sphere of joy felt in meditation.”
Yogananda

#10

“Many people excuse their own faults but judge other persons harshly. We should reverse this attitude by excusing others’ shortcomings and by harshly examining our own.”
Yogananda

#11

“Stillness is the altar of spirit.”
Yogananda

#12

“Your trials did not come to punish you, but to awaken you – to make you realize that you are a part of Spirit and that just behind the sparks of your life is the Flame of Infinity.”
Yogananda

#13

“If religion means primarily God-consciousness, or the realization of God both within and without, and secondarily a body of beliefs, tenets, and dogmas, then, strictly speaking, there is but one religion in the world, for there is but one God.”
Yogananda

#14

“Retire to the center of your being, which is calmness.”
Yogananda

#15

“The wave is the same as the ocean, though it is not the whole ocean. So each wave of creation is a part of the eternal Ocean of Spirit. The Ocean can exist without the waves, but the waves cannot exist without the Ocean.”
Yogananda

#16

“Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts, only you can change them.”
Yogananda

#17

“Millions of people never analyze themselves. Mentally they are mechanical products of the factory of their environment, preoccupied with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, working and sleeping, and going here and there to be entertained. They don’t know what or why they are seeking, nor why they never realize complete happiness and lasting satisfaction. By evading self-analysis, people go on being robots, conditioned by their environment. True self-analysis is the greatest art of progress.”
Yogananda

#18

“Having lots of money while not having inner peace is like dying of thirst while bathing in the ocean.”
Yogananda

Yogananda

#20

“The body is literally manufactured and sustained by mind.”
Yogananda

#21

“Even when you do not know where the next dollar is coming from, you should refuse to be apprehensive. When you do your part and rely on God to do His, you will find that mysterious forces come to your aid and that your constructive wishes soon materialize. This confidence and consciousness of abundance are attained through meditation.”
Yogananda

#22

“Every tomorrow is determined by every today.”
Yogananda

#23

“I don’t want people to think that they can attain realization simply by listening to others or by reading books. They must practice what they read and hear.”
Yogananda

#24

“Attachment is blinding; it lends an imaginary halo of attractiveness to the object of desire.”
Yogananda

#25

“Every day try to help uplift physically, mentally, or spiritually suffering people, as you would help yourself or your family. If, instead of living in the misery-making selfish way, you live according to the laws of God, then, no matter what small part you may be playing on the stage of life, you will know that you have been playing your part correctly, as directed by the Stage Manager of all our destinies. Your part, however small, is just as important as the biggest parts in contributing to the success of the Drama of Souls on the Stage of Life. Make a little money and be satisfied with it by living a simple life and expressing your ideals, rather than make lots of money and have worries without end.”
Yogananda

#26

“The deeper the self-realization of a man, the more he influences the whole universe by his subtle spiritual vibrations, and the less he himself is affected by the phenomenal flux.”
Yogananda

#27

‘You have seen how your health has exactly followed your subconscious expectations. Thought is a force, even as electricity or gravitation. The human mind is a spark of the almighty consciousness of God. I could show you that whatever your powerful mind believes very intensely would instantly come to pass.’ “Knowing”
Yogananda

#28

“The power of unfulfilled desires is the root of all man’s slavery.”
Yogananda

#29

“The greatest sin is to call yourself a sinner. You are a child of God. Though gold is covered with mud for centuries, it remains gold. So the pure ‘gold’ of the soul can be covered over with the mud of delusion for eons, but in its true nature it remains forever undefiled.”
Yogananda

#30

“To work with God’s happiness bubbling in the soul is to carry a portable paradise within you wherever you go.”
Yogananda

#31

“The rejuvenating effects of sleep are due to man’s temporary unawareness of body and breathing. The sleeping man becomes a yogi; each night he unconsciously performs the yogic rite of releasing himself from bodily identification, and of merging the life force with healing currents in the main brain region and in the six subdynamos of his spinal centers. Unknowingly, the sleeper is thus recharged by the cosmic energy that sustains all life.”
Yogananda

#32

“You possess the power of thought and the power of will. Utilize to the uttermost these divine gifts!”
Yogananda

#33

“Be satisfied with your part. Do not bemoan your fate. In this life, everyone has trouble which he thinks nobody else has. Never wish to be in the shoes of someone else who you think is better off than you are. It is best to wish for nothing but to ask the Lord to give you what is for your highest good. You are a part of the Lord’s creation: He needs everybody to carry on this drama. Never compare yourself with anybody else. You are what you are. Nobody is like you. Nobody can act your part as you can. Similarly, you should not try to play somebody else’s part. What is important is to do the will of Him who sent you; that is what you want. While you do your part, think all the time that God is working through you.”
Yogananda

#34

“The human mind is a spark of the almighty consciousness of God. I could show you that whatever your powerful mind believes very intensely would instantly come to pass.”
Yogananda

#35

“When you make up your mind to do good things, you will accomplish them if you use dynamic will power to follow through. No matter what the circumstances are if you go on trying, God will create the means by which your will shall find its proper reward.”
Yogananda

#36

“The goal of yoga science is to calm the mind, that without distortion it may hear the infallible counsel of the Inner Voice.”
Yogananda

#37

“If you retain the joyous aftereffects of meditation throughout the day or part of the day, you will see that this joy will correctly guide you in everything. Saints are guided by this joy, in the consciousness of which no erroneous actions are possible. Retain the acquired joy of meditation throughout the day.”
Yogananda

#38

“Ordinary love is selfish, darkly rooted in desires, and satisfaction. Divine love is without condition, without boundary, without change. The flux of the human heart is gone forever at the transfixing touch of pure love.”
Yogananda

#39

“No action is ever an isolated event. Always, it invites from the universe a reaction that corresponds exactly to the type and the force of energy behind the deed.”
Yogananda

#40

“When the mind is calm, how quickly, how smoothly, how beautifully you will perceive everything.”
Yogananda quotes

#41

“Never do anything that taints your mind. Wrong actions cause negative or evil mental vibrations that are reflected in your whole appearance and personality. Engage in those actions and thoughts that nurture the good qualities you want to have.”
Yogananda

#42

“If you don’t invite God to be your summer Guest, He won’t come in the winter of your life.”
Yogananda

#43

“Opportunities in life come by creation, not by chance. You yourself, either now or in the past (including the past of former lives), have created all opportunities that arise in your path. Since you have earned them, use them to the best advantage.”
Yogananda

#44

“Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.”
Yogananda

#45

“Is a diamond less valuable because it is covered with mud? God sees the changeless beauty of our souls. He knows we are not our mistakes.” Yogananda

#46

“If you want to be sad, no one in the world can make you happy. But if you make up your mind to be happy, no one and nothing on earth can take that happiness from you.”
Yogananda quotes

#47

“I am the Cosmic Ocean of sound and the little wave of the body vibration in it.”
Yogananda

#48

“The sun shines equally on diamond and charcoal, but one has developed qualities that enable it to reflect the sunlight brilliantly, while the other absorbs all the sunlight. Emulate the diamond in your dealings with people. Brightly reflect the light of God’s love.”
Yogananda

#49

“The one who pursues a goal of evenmindedness is neither jubilant with gain nor depressed by loss.”
Yogananda

#50

“Persons of strong character are usually the happiest. They do not blame others for troubles that can be traced to their own actions and lack of understanding. They know that no one has the power to add to their happiness or detract from it, unless they themselves allow the adverse thoughts or wicked actions of others to affect them.”
Yogananda

#51

“Some people try to be tall by cutting off the heads of others!”
Yogananda quotes

#52

“Mind is the creator of everything. You should, therefore, guide it to create only good. If you cling to a certain thought with dynamic will power, it finally assumes a tangible outward form. When you are able to employ your will always for constructive purposes, you become the controller of your destiny.”
Yogananda

#53

“Change yourself and you have done your part in changing the world.”
Yogananda

#54

“Do not take life’s experiences too seriously. For in reality, they are nothing but dream experiences. Play your part in life, but never forget that it is only a role.”
Yogananda

#55

“Seeds of past karma cannot germinate if they are roasted in the fires of divine wisdom.”
Yogananda

#56

Yogananda quotes

#57

“Practice loving those who do not love you. Feel for those who do not feel for you. Be generous to those who are generous only to themselves. If you heap hatred on your enemy, neither he nor you are able to perceive the inherent beauty of your soul.”
Yogananda

#58

“The balanced rhythm of the universe is rooted in reciprocity,”
Yogananda

#59

“To fly away from problems may seem the easiest solution. But you gain strength only when you wrestle with a strong opponent. One who doesn’t have difficulties is one who doesn’t grow.”
Yogananda

#60

“Incredible amounts of energy are hidden in your brain; enough in a gram of flesh to run the city of Chicago for 2 days. And you say you are tired?”
Yogananda

36 Charles Bukowski Quotes

#1

“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.” ~ Charles Bukowski

the family, runs through school and goes into the business
world.”
~ Charles Bukowski

At the age of 25, most people were finished. A whole god-damned nation of assholes driving automobiles, eating, having babies, doing everything in the worst way possible, like voting for the presidential candidates who reminded them most of themselves. I had no interests. I had no interest in anything. I had no idea how I was going to escape. At least the others had some taste for life. They seemed to understand something that I didn’t understand. Maybe I was lacking. It was possible. I often felt inferior. I just wanted to get away from them. But there was no place to go.” ~ Charles Bukowski

#23

“I wanted the whole world or nothing.” ~ Charles Bukowski

take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.

the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.”

Soul Searching Quotes Image

Soul searching is a vital part of everyone’s journey. Some people are very mindful of it, others don’t give much attention to this inner searching. However, if you are a conscious person, sooner or later, you start asking deep questions that are aimed at soul searching. In this article, we have collected soul searching quotes that are quite thought-provoking and may inspire you to do some inner searching work.

22 Soul Searching Quotes

#1

soul search quote image

“The power is in you. The answer is in you. And you are the answer to all your searches: you are the goal. You are the answer. It’s never outside.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

#2

“Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard.” ~ Anne Sexton

#3

“You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.” ~ Alan Alda

#4

“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

#5

“Give yourself the gift of time in coming to answers for your life…It takes time, and a lot of introspection and soul-searching, to get clear about what you really want to manifest in your life.” ~ David Emerald Womeldorff

#6

“We have not turned our attention to the needs of the soul. We have not considered what is required by the soul in order to be healthy. We have not studied the soul or sought to help it attain what is necessary to its evolution and its health. Because we have been five-sensory, we have focused upon the body and the personality. We have developed an extensive knowledge of the physical apparatus that the soul assumes when it incarnates. We know of amino acids, neurotransmitters, chromosomes, and enzymes, but we do not know of the soul.” ~ Gary Zukav

#7

“Each person is born with an unencumbered spot—free of expectation and regret, free of ambition and embarrassment, free of fear and worry—an umbilical spot of grace where we were each first touched by God. It is this spot of grace that issues peace. Psychologists call this spot the Psyche, theologians call it the Soul, Jung calls it the Seat of the Unconscious, Hindu masters call it Atman, Buddhists call it Dharma, Rilke calls it Inwardness, Sufis call it Qalb, and Jesus calls it the Center of our Love. To know this spot of Inwardness is to know who we are, not by surface markers of identity, not by where we work or what we wear or how we like to be addressed, but by feeling our place in relation to the Infinite and by inhabiting it.” ~ Mark Nepo

#8

soul purpose quote image

“You were born with everything you need to answer the call of your soul.” ~ Marie Forleo

#9

“And in this game of life, we all search for ourselves. When I say selves, I mean ‘inner selves’, the thing that created the life in the first place. Now consciously, most of us are not aware of this. But if you’re searching for happiness; if you’re searching for tranquility; if you’re searching just to have a nice, peaceful, loving, understanding life… in actual fact, your searching for your inner self.” ~ Sydney Banks

#10

“Health depends on being in harmony with our souls.” ~ Edward Bach

#11

“Love can heal a wounded soul. We all have scars from our past. Scars on wrists and throats can be healed with time but there are some scars which are much deeper than those on the body. They are the scars on our hearts, minds and on our souls which take a long time to heal. Embrace people who love you because love has an amazing power to heal and bring radiance in our life…” ~ Aarti Khurana

#12

“Your soul knows when it is time to close a chapter…” ~ Unknown

#13

“It’s easy to soul search in the modern secularized sense of the term. All we need to do is introspect a little and ask ourselves some pointed questions. Traveling is often touted as a great way to soul search for young, bright-eyed seekers. But soul searching, in the spiritual sense of the term, is much harder. It’s more elusive, more slippery, more complex. Nevertheless, to my knowledge, it is the most worthy and important pursuit in existence.” ~ Aletheia Luna

#14

quotes about soul image

“Quiet the mind and the soul will speak.” ~ Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati

#15

“What I can say is that all my characters are searching for their souls, because they are my mirrors. I’m someone who is constantly trying to understand my place in the world, and literature is the best way that I found in order to see myself.” ~ Paulo Coelho

#16

“Are you searching for the river of your soul? Then come out of your prison. Leave the stream and join the river that flows into the ocean.” ~ Rumi

#17

“To put it simply, soul searching is the quest to answer life’s problems and questions. When most people refer to ‘soul searching,’ they are talking about uncovering truth and happiness by questioning our thoughts, habits, and motivations. But soul searching also has a deeper meaning. At its core, soul searching is a return to the center of your being. Quite literally, it is a journey to find your Soul or True Nature; it is a spiritual path. And usually, it marks the beginning of the spiritual awakening journey.” ~ Aletheia Luna

#18

“Mindfully practicing authenticity during our most soul-searching struggles is how we invite grace, joy, and gratitude into our lives.” ~ Brené Brown

#19

“Maybe we all need to leave our children with a value legacy, and not a financial one. A value for things with a personal touch – an autographed book, a soul-searching letter.” ~ Lakshmi Pratury

#20

soul healing image

“The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.” ~ Caroline Myss

#21

“All births mean separation from the All, the confinement within limitation, the separation from God, the pangs of being born ever anew. The return into the All, the dissolution of painful individuation, the reunion with God means the expansion of the soul until it is able once more to embrace the All.” ~ Herman Hesse

#22

“I am the drop that contains the sea. How beautiful to be an ocean hidden within an infinite drop.” ~ Yunus Emre

― Anasazi Foundation

#4

“We have forgotten how to be good guests, how to walk lightly on the earth as its other creatures do.”
— Barbara Ward

#5

Native peoples do not look for salvation from worlds beyond. They need no alternate reality because the mortal world and the spirit world are the same. This Earth is heaven, hell, and purgatory; but most importantly, it is home. The greatest of spiritual mysteries may be revealed just beyond the front door, in the life of a community.”
― Israel Morrow

#6

“The basic pattern of life is a network. Whenever you see life, you see networks. The whole planet, what we can term ‘Gaia’ is a network of processes involving feedback tubes. Humans are part of the larger whole, Gaia.”

Forward Walking choices are rewarded with consequences that light the way to peace, happiness, joy, comfort, knowledge, and wisdom. Backward Walking choices bring to the Two-Legged beings consequences of misery despair, and darkness.”
― Anasazi Foundation

– James Lovelock

#11

quote on Gaia image

– Guy Laliberte

#12

“You are eating from, seeing outside through, stepping, sleeping on, wiping with, reading, tooth picking with, barbecuing trees. Don’t forget they let you breathe!”
― Suyasha Subedi

#13

Teach your children what we have taught our children, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. This we know: the earth does not belong to man – man belongs to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood that unites one’s family. All things are connected.”
― Chief Seattle (Sealth), Suquamish Chief

“Plant a seed of ‘Peace‘ and let Gaia take care of herself don’t try to fathom or comprehend her magnificence.”
― Syed Sharukh

#15

“The Earth sometimes rewards humans who do good works for the planet. Look out for unexpected windfalls of produce from the earth such as baskets of fruit or vegetables given to you unexpectedly, nature handcrafts, or a bunch of flowers picked from a beloved garden. These are all signs that the gifts not only came from the giver but from Mother Earth herself. – Fairy of the woods.”
― Sarah Rajkotwala

#16

“The proper use of science is not to conquer nature but to live in it.”
— Barry Commoner

#17

“Our ancestors said to their mother Earth: ‘We are yours’. Modern Humanity said to Nature, ‘You are mine’. The Green Man has returned as the living face of the whole earth so that through his mouth we may say to the universe: ‘We are one’.”
― Sharon Brubaker

#18

“Certain animal species who burrow into the Earth for places of solace or safety, or who inhabit the sheltering arches of caves alongside the spirits of the rocks, are the bridgers between these inner and outer levels of reality. Rabbits, gophers, moles, prairie dogs, wolves, and bears in hibernation all remember and recreate their rootedness in Mother Earth.”
― Elizabeth Eiler

#19

“No man is as wise as Mother Earth. She has witnessed every human day, every human struggle, every human pain, and every human joy. For maladies of both body and spirit, the wise ones of old pointed man to the hills. For man too is of the dust and Mother Earth stands ready to nurture and heal her children.”
― Anasazi Foundation

Mother Earth Quote Image

“Mother Earth, one of my absolute favorite places… where the sounds, the energy, the beauty, and the life pounds into your every fiber of being, letting you know that you are alive. I will always respect and honor this gift of creation that we call our home.”
― Peace Gypsy

#21

“In the Gaia theory air, water, and soil are major components of one central organism, planet Earth. What we typically think of as life – the plants and animals that inhabit the earth – has evolved merely to regulate the chemistry of the biosphere. Humans are insignificant participants, far less important to the life cycle than termites. Even the imbalance that we have created by adding massive quantities of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere may be brought back to acceptable levels by other organisms functioning in their capacity to correct excesses.”
– David Easton

#22

“Earth survived then; it will survive again.
The real question is “will we”?”
― Dr. Darius Singh

#23

“Knowledge is power and at the end of the day, our health, the health of our children, the health of our community, and the health of Mother Earth is our responsibility. Therefore, it is imperative that we understand the human and environmental affects of the products that we buy.”
― Obiora Embry

#24

“Sometimes we just have to stop and feel the pulse of the Earth, the rhythm of the seasons and the internal voice that was once our childhood friend.”
― Fennel Hudson

#25

“We have found that no modern prescriptions heal the human heart so fully or so well as the prescription of the Ancient Ones. “To the hills,” they would say. To which we would add, “To the trees, the valleys, and the streams, as well.” For there is a power in nature that man has ignored. And the result has been heartache and pain.”
― Anasazi Foundation

#26

“It’s not enough to simply learn about Nature anymore, we must learn from it.”
― Dr. Darius Singh

#27

“Time spent among trees is never time wasted.”
— Anonymous

#28

“What’s the use of a fine house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on.”
— Henry David Thoreau

#29

“A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt
