50 Happiness Quotes

#1

Happiness Quote Wayne Dyer Image

“Heaven on Earth is a choice you must make, not a place you must find.” – Wayne Dyer

#2

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

#3

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral, which always is as it is. There is the situation or the fact, and here are my thoughts about it. Instead of making up stories, stay with the facts. For example, “I am ruined” is a story. It limits you and prevents you from taking effective action. “I have 50 cents left in my bank account” is a fact. Facing facts is always empowering.” – Eckhart Tolle

#4

“Happiness is the art of never holding in your mind the memory of any unpleasant thing that has passed.”

#5

“It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.” – Dale Carnegie

#6

“There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.” – Epictetus

#7

“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything—anger, anxiety, or possessions—we cannot be free.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Happiness Quotes

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.” – Helen Keller

#9

“Success comes from gaining, happiness comes from giving.” – Jay Shetty

#10

“It’s not what is available or unavailable that determines your level of success and happiness; it’s what you convince yourself is true.” – Wayne Dyer

#11

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” – Frederick Keonig

#12

“Happy people plan actions, they don’t plan results.” – Dennis Waitley

#13

“A Sufi mystic who had always remained happy was asked…. For seventy years people had watched him, he had never been found sad. One day they asked him, ‘What is the secret of your happiness?’ He said, ‘There is no secret. Every morning when I wake up, I meditate for five minutes and I say to myself, ‘Listen, now there are two possibilities: you can be miserable, or you can be blissful. Choose.’ And I always choose to be blissful.’

“All alternatives are open. Choose to be blissful. And then there are people who can be blissful even when they are imprisoned, and there are people who remain miserable even when they are living in marble palaces. It all depends on you.” – Osho

#14

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” – Mahatma Gandhi

#15

quote on being happy image

“The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be.” – Marcel Pagnol

#16

“Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.” – Marthe Troly-Curtin

#17

“We begin from the recognition that all beings cherish happiness and do not want suffering. It then becomes both morally wrong and pragmatically unwise to pursue only one’s own happiness oblivious to the feelings and aspirations of all others who surround us as members of the same human family. The wiser course is to think of others when pursuing our own happiness.” – Dalai Lama

#18

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” – Herman Cain

#19

“Don’t seek happiness. If you seek it, you won’t find it, because seeking is the antithesis of happiness. Happiness is ever elusive, but freedom from unhappiness is attainable now, by facing what is rather than making up stories about it.” – Eckhart Tolle

#20

“Happiness has nothing to do with what you have or don’t have. Happiness is related to what you are. However many things you may collect, perhaps they may increase your worries, your troubles, but happiness will not increase because of them. Certainly unhappiness will increase with them, but they have no relation to an increase in your happiness.

“I am not saying that you should renounce things, that you should escape from your home and renounce the marketplace. No, don’t misunderstand my statement. What is, is good. Nothing will happen either by dropping things and escaping from them or by clinging to them. Remain where you are, but begin the search within. Much outer searching has already been done, now go within. Now know the one, in this knowing one attains all. All desires are at once fulfilled.” – Osho

#21

“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama

Happiness Quotes

#22

Wayne Dyer quotes and sayings Image

“The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of the state of your mind.” – Wayne Dyer

#23

“Don’t be too much concerned about money, because that is the greatest distraction against happiness. And the irony of ironies is that people think they will be happy when they have money. Money has nothing to do with happiness. If you are happy and you have money, you can use it for happiness. If you are unhappy and you have money, you will use that money for more unhappiness. Because money is simply a neutral force.

“I am not against money – remember. Don’t misinterpret me: I am not against money. I am not against anything. Money is a means. If you are happy and you have money, you will become more happy. If you are unhappy and you have money, you will become more unhappy because what will you do with your money? Your money will enhance your pattern, whatsoever it is. If you are miserable and you have power, what will you do with your power? You will poison yourself more with your power, you will become more miserable.” – Osho

#24

“Most people are searching for happiness. They’re looking for it. They’re trying to find it in someone or something outside of themselves. That’s a fundamental mistake. Happiness is something that you are, and it comes from the way you think.” – Wayne Dyer

#25

“If you are really feeling happy, you are feeling happy even if the whole world contradicts you. If the whole world agrees that you are not happy, then too it doesn’t matter. Your happiness is real. It cannot be canceled by anybody’s opinion. But if your happiness is unreal, it can be canceled by anybody. Even a small child can cancel it. You will be constantly looking towards people. You will be smiling, trying to show that you are happy so that they can say, ‘Yes. You are very happy. You look very happy.’” – Osho

#26

“Tantra says be real, be authentic to yourself. Your happiness is not bad; it is good. It is not sin! Only sadness is sin, only to be miserable is sin. To be happy is virtue because a happy person will not create unhappiness for others. Only a happy person can be a ground for others’ happiness.” – Osho

#27

“Happiness has always been an internal phenomenon. The sources of your happiness is inside of you.” – Sadhguru

#28

“People believe themselves to be dependent on what happens for their happiness. They don’t realize that what happens is the most unstable thing in the universe. It changes constantly. They look upon the present moment as either marred by something that has happened and shouldn’t have or as deficient because of something that has not happened but should have. And so they miss the deeper perfection that is inherent in life itself, a perfection that lies beyond what is happening or not happening. Accept the present moment and find the perfection that is untouched by time.” – Eckhart Tolle

#29

Wayne Dyer Joy Quotes Image

”Enjoy everything that happens in your life, but never make your happiness or success dependent on an attachment to any person, place, or thing.” – Wayne Dyer

#30

“The fact that happiness is associated with relaxation does not mean that it is impossible to be happy in the midst of strenuous effort, for to be truly effective great effort must, as it were, revolve upon a steady unmoving center. The problem before us is how to find such a center of relaxed balance and poise in man’s individual life – a center whose happiness is unshaken by the whirl that goes on around it, which creates happiness because of itself and not because of external events, and this in spite of the fact that it may experience those events in all their aspects and extremes from the highest bliss to the deepest agony.” ― Alan Watts

#31

“You need nothing to be happy.” – Mooji

#32

“Happiness is strange; it comes when you are not seeking it. When you are not making an effort to be happy, then unexpectedly, mysteriously, happiness is there, born of purity, of a loveliness of being?” – Jiddu Krishnamurti

#33

“Let’s not make happiness and success about the size of our homes, but about the size of our hearts; let’s not make it about gratification but gratitude.” – Jay Shetty

#34

“I believe compassion to be one of the few things we can practice that will bring immediate and long-term happiness to our lives. I’m not talking about the short-term gratification of pleasures like sex, drugs or gambling (though I’m not knocking them), but something that will bring true and lasting happiness. The kind that sticks.” – Dalai Lama

#35

“Joy is a natural phenomenon. Misery is your creation.” – Sadhguru

Happiness Quotes

#36

Inspirational Quotes On Happiness Image

”Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace & gratitude.” – Denis Waitley

#37

“Be so happy that when others look at you, they become happy too.” – Harbhajan Singh Yogi

#38

“Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action.” – Benjamin Disraeli

#39

“A whole new kind of spiritual happiness dawns in us as we realize that dark clouds do not ruin sunny skies… they merely pass through them to help us remember our love of the light.” – Guy Finley

#40

“Happiness comes from spiritual wealth, not material wealth… Happiness comes from giving, not getting. If we try hard to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also. To get joy, we must give it, and to keep joy, we must scatter it.” – John Templeton

#41

“Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting some on yourself.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

#42

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects.” – Albert Einstein

#43

”The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.” – James Oppenheim

#44

“It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.” – Charles Spurgeon

#45

“A smile is happiness you’ll find right under your nose.” – Tom Wilson

#46

“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.” – Jim Rohn

#47

“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.” – Gerard Way

#48

“The secret of happiness is to admire without desiring.” – Carl Sandburg

#49

“There is no such thing as the pursuit of happiness, but there is the discovery of joy.” – Joyce Grenfell

30 Old Soul Quotes To Better Understand Your Spiritual Nature

Published

Old Soul Quotes Image

Being an old soul refers to how you view and approach life. Usually, old souls look at life through a vignette of experiences they may not have lived during this lifetime, yet, but somehow, just seem to know. If you feel like you’ve lived before, and you have wisdom you can’t explain, you could be an old soul. Whether you’re an old soul or not, our collection of 30 old soul quotes could be relatable to you or some of your friends and family. When reading through these old soul quotes you may start recognizing yourself (or someone you know) and understand your (or someone’s) spiritual nature better.

Here they are 30 insightful old soul quotes!

30 Old Soul Quotes

#1

old soul quote image

“There is a beautiful thing inside you that is thousands of years old. Too old to be captured in poems. Too old to be loved by everyone but loved so very deeply by a chosen few.” ~ Nikita Gill

#2

“The Old Soul is more inclined to be a lifelong learner, constantly feeding his thirst for insight through his own persistent efforts. His learning has not been forced into him through education or learned out of obligation, but has been absorbed out of curiosity and personal choice.” ~ Aletheia Luna

#3

“She’s an old soul with young eyes, a vintage heart, and a beautiful mind.” ~ Nicole Lyons

#4

“Old souls are humble enough to acknowledge that life is random and surprising, but are comforted by the fact that they can always choose how to react from what happens. And the ability to reflect on one’s life is an absolute must. As an old soul, you know that it’s up to you to make it through this life in one piece. And you ensure that you take time everyday to reflect on what has transpired in order to learn about how you can move forward in life.” ~ Lachlan Brown

#5

“My heart is a thousand years old. I am not like other people.” ~ Charles Bukowski

#6

“Old souls come into this life with an agenda to experience and complete karma, while new souls want to make form out of light, and experience what it’s like to be a being in a body. As such, the new souls’ experience is a bit more lighthearted, where being an old soul can feel heavy. But in addition to that, because the old soul comes to this life with more experience and understanding, they’re able to handle obstacles and challenges with greater clarity.” ~ Randi Merzon

#7

“As an old soul, you get tired out around people quite easily. Some old souls would identify as introverts, but it’s more than that: if you are an old soul, you feel like both your body, mind, and soul need rest. This is probably why you love taking breaks from everything and everyone. From time to time, you like going somewhere different, where no one knows you, and you like to rejuvenate your energy with the unknown or with nature.” ~ Lachlan Brown

#8

starseeds quotes image

“I don’t belong on earth, my soul is from the stars. I’m visiting this planet for a while so I can help people listen to their hearts.” ~ Nikki Rowe

#9

“There is a special kind of person in our world who finds himself alone and isolated, almost since birth. His solitary existence isn’t from a preference or antisocial temperament– he is simply old. Old in heart, old in mind, and old in soul, this person who finds his outlook on life vastly different and more matured than those around him.” ~ Alethia Luna

#10

“No one enjoys being a newbie, but in fact, the benefit of being a new soul is that they carry around a lot less karma.” ~ Randi Merzon

#11

“Some people say an old soul is simply more mature than those around them. But that doesn’t tell the full story. An old soul creates their own path while the rest of society follow each other like sheep. Banality and toxic energy are non-existent in an old soul’s life. Instead, an old soul questions conventional wisdom and critically thinks for themselves. They’re not concerned with gossiping or making money. They want to understand more about life and what makes the universe tick. ~ Lachlan Brown

#12

“Anyone who takes the time to attentively listen is either an old soul or a romantic one.” ~ Richelle E. Goodrich

#13

“Be grateful if you look younger than your age while also being wiser than many of your contemporaries. It means the fire of your Old Soul is alive and well. Embrace it. Surround yourself with those who celebrate this fiery Light shining bright out of your soul; those who are summoned to fan your glimmering flames and dance within them. Embrace them.” ~ Omar Cherif

#14

“Old souls are misunderstood for several things. For possibly appearing standoffish. For their desire to be alone — read, introvert. For acting withdrawn. They are deep thinkers. They could be considered daydreamers. And more often than not, when they speak, the attention quickly and quietly moves to them because you know they’ve been waiting for just the right time to say just the right, meaningful thing.” ~ Kym Klass

Old Soul Quotes

#15

quotes about old soul image

“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?” ~ Satchel Paige

#16

“If you are an old soul, it’s likely that you have been referred to as more mature than your friends, even from a young age. You might have always felt like you were a bit older, not just physically, but mentally. Perhaps you didn’t always get along with people your own age because you were seeing things from a different perspective. And how they see things seem short-sighted to you. It can even put you off when people can’t look at the bigger picture. It can be difficult when you are young and don’t understand why you are different, but as you age, it becomes more clear that you meant to be this way. Being an old soul is a gift, not a curse.” ~ Lachlan Brown

#17

“Innately, the Old Soul carries a sense of world-wariness as he stands on the outside, looking in. As an observer, the Old Soul like the Steppenwolf feels an all-pervading sense of alienation. He is the ultimate Outsider who is both in the world, but not quite of the world at the same time.” ~ Aletheia Luna

#18

“Old souls are givers — but they don’t do this for attention. Rather, it is something that has been ingrained in them from the beginning. They’ve just always known it is better to give. And they do that with passion.” ~ Kym Klass

#19

“Many people are drawn to old souls, for they radiate a sense of peacefulness and inner strength that is captivating and reassuring.” ~ Carla Marie Manly

#20

“People who have old souls don’t require outside validation of their worth or value. A lot of people turn to others, the internet, their jobs, or another outside source of validation to make meaning in their lives, but as an old soul, you see the value of your experiences and what you bring to the table so there’s no need to exhaust your efforts in those areas.” ~ Lachlan Brown

#21

“The concept of the old soul is inspired by the idea that our bodies are containers for spirit, and an old soul is someone who continues to reincarnate in order to heal or complete karmic agreements.” ~ Randi Merzon

#22

soul quotes

“The reason old souls enjoy spending time alone is because they never really are.” ~ Unknown

#23

“A new soul wants to be fresh and new and maybe have a more hedonistic lifestyle, while an old soul wants to go into the depths and learn. Old souls may also feel somewhat isolated, as they can see through much of the illusion and separation in modern culture.” ~ Karen Brailsford

#24

“In a world of sensationalized automated newsfeeds and fake news, old souls are now more needed than ever.”

#25

“People who have old souls are often found at home. It is where they feel safe and secure. It’s where they are happiest. People who have old souls don’t have to look far outside themselves to find what really makes them happy. And if you find yourself bound to home as much as possible, then you’re definitely an old soul. There is nothing more restful than being in your favorite couch, tucked under a blanket, and simply enjoying the comforts of the place you made for yourself.” ~ Lachlan Brown

#26

“When we talk about ‘old souls’ in the realm of psychology, we are often referring to those individuals who seem to have inherent wisdom and a grounded sense of being in the world—often far more than would be expected for someone their age.” ~ Carla Marie Manly

#27

“Old souls are certainly introspective, but they don’t only think about themselves; they’re known to be thoughtful in a broader way, and they enjoy collecting, connecting, appreciating, and learning. Despite perhaps coming across as all-knowing, an old soul is keenly aware that they’re a student of the universe, not a teacher. Given this truth, it’s clear that old souls are more interested in the depth of a story than the superficial details.” ~ Mary Grace Garis

#28

“Old souls know that there’s always more than one way to look at something, and they can put themselves in someone else’s shoes. That doesn’t mean you always agree with the person you’re talking to – but you do find it easy to understand their perspective. This ability to see both sides of an issue makes old souls fair-minded – rather than just going with their gut, they make decisions based on carefully accumulated facts and opinions. The downside? Old souls often appear uncommitted to their own point of view. If people accuse you of being changeable, just keep in mind that what you are is rare. Not everyone will see what you offer, but your ability to see others’ perspectives benefits everyone.” ~ Jen Hubley Luckwaldt

Old Soul Quotes & Sayings

#29

deep sayings about introverts image

“Old souls are picky with people they choose to spend time with. They don’t like superficial relationships. So they would rather be alone than to be with people they don’t relate with. As a result, they are often seen alone.” ~ Lachlan Brown

#30

“Old souls serve a wonderful purpose here on Earth. We use our wisdom that we have attained through many lifetimes to pass down to others, so that we may have a peaceful, happier world. We see life differently than most people and have a unique sense of how to approach the world with an open mind, and a strong will that keeps us grounded in our convictions. An old soul sees through ancient eyes and understands with an ancient heart.” ~ Aurora Eliam

35 boundaries quotes and sayings image

If you want to have healthy relationships and a peaceful life, it is essential to have personal boundaries. Personal boundaries are basic guidelines of how you want to be treated. Without boundaries, you will eventually start feeling like you’ve been depleted, taken advantage of, taken for granted, or intruded upon. Sooner or later, poor personal boundaries will lead to resentment, anger, and burnout. Therefore, we all need to learn the art of saying ‘no’. And the sooner we do it, the easier our life will become. In this article, we have collected 35 quotes on boundaries to support you on your journey of learning to say ‘no’.

Here they are 35 quotes on boundaries!

35 Quotes On Boundaries

#1

personal boundaries sayings Image

“To me, self-care does not mean going to the spa. It’s learning to say no. It’s knowing yourself so you can make choices that are an expression of you.” ~ Tracee Ellis Ross

#2

“The hardest part about setting boundaries with people, no matter who they are, is not feeling confident in our authority to do so. As long as you realize that setting boundaries is necessary for healthy relationships, you will feel better defining and keeping them.” ~ Tamera Mowry-Housley

#3

“Givers need to set limits because takers rarely do.” ~ Rachel Wolchin

#4

“Poor boundaries model a narcissistic and codependent dynamic. They can be toxic – lead to power struggles and manipulation. They can also lead to cognitive distortions. For example, people-pleasers tend to feel objectified by others and commanding personalities are often resentful that they “have” to hold all the responsibility. It is often the case that the intentions are good but the boundaries are poor. Obligation, expectation, demands, guilt, fear are all on the list when explaining how the “wrong” thing is done for the “right” reasons.” ~ Ishtar Gonzalez

#5

“I swear to God, the second I learned how to say ‘no,’ I felt that was the best anti-aging I could do for myself.“ ~ Gabrielle Union

#6

“Setting boundaries is a way of caring for myself. It doesn’t make me mean, selfish, or uncaring (just) because I don’t do things your way. I care about me, too.” ~ Christine Morgan

#7

“I encourage people to remember that “No” is a complete sentence.” ~ Gavin de Becker

#8

healthy boundaries quote image

”Healthy boundaries are not walls. They are gates and fences that allow you to enjoy the beauty of your own garden.” ~ Lydia Hall

#9

“Families living in dysfunction seldom have healthy boundaries. Dysfunctional families have trouble knowing where they stop and others begin.” ~ David W. Earle

#10

“Being able to say “No” is a necessary ingredient in a healthy lifestyle.” ~ David W. Earle

#11

“Compassionate people ask for what they need. They say no when they need to, and when they say yes, they mean it. They’re compassionate because their boundaries keep them out of resentment.” ~ Bren Brown

#12

“No” is a complete sentence.” ~ Anne Lamott

#13

“Boundaries can be a measure of a person’s self-worth and they can also be an empowering means to rectify any self-deprecation. They assist us in showing up in the world with overflow rather than from exhaustion. They are the tools with which we practice assertiveness, self-acceptance, and, most of all, increased trust.” ~ Ishtar Gonzalez

#14

“People who violate your boundaries are thieves. They steal time that doesn’t belong to them.” ~ Elizabeth Grace Saunders

Quotes On Boundaries

#15

boundaries quote Image

“Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity, or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead somewhere.” ~ Paulo Coelho

#16

“Boundaries are a crucial starting point. They do not beget separation as one may assume; instead, they invite unconditional self-love which ultimately can translate into authentic intimacy as we learn to be accountable for ourselves.” ~ Ishtar Gonzalez

#17

“The first thing you need to learn is that the person who is angry at you for setting boundaries is the one with the problem” ~ Drs. Cloud and Townsend

#18

“Honoring your own boundaries is the clearest message to others to honor them, too.” ~ Gina Greenlee

#19

“Personal boundaries are an essential part of creating and upholding a healthy self-image. When a person has strong personal boundaries, it communicates to the world that they exude healthy self-respect and self-worth. Hence, creating boundaries makes us feel good about ourselves and preserves our personal integrity.” ~ Mateo Sol

#20

“Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves even when we risk disappointing others.” ~ Bren Brown

#21

“Boundaries are the lines we draw that mark off our autonomy and that of other people, that protect our privacy and that of others. Boundaries allow for intimate connection without dissolving or losing one’s sense of self.” ~ Amy Bloom

#22

Ishtar Gonzalez quote Image

”Liberation from taking on external expectations and finding balance with the heart’s desire are the gateway to healthy boundaries which lead to conscious relating.” ~ Ishtar Gonzalez

#23

“Your personal boundaries protect the inner core of your identity and your right to choices.” ~ Gerard Manley Hopkins

#24

“Boundaries: The key to confidence, calm and self-control.” ~ Rokelle Lerner

#25

“Boundaries help us take care of ourselves by giving us permission to say NO to things, to not take everything on. Boundaries draw a clear line around what is ok for us and what is not. While some behaviours clearly cross the line for almost anyone, we all have different comfort levels when it comes to everything from intimacy and privacy to lateness. When someone behaves in a way that doesn’t feel ok to us – that crosses our line, we need to take care of ourselves by letting them know and making that line much clearer.” ~ Ida Soghomonian

#26

“Boundaries are lines that define your self-respect and self-esteem.” ~ David Roppo

#27

“You have to be able to set boundaries, otherwise the rest of the world is telling you who you are and what you should be doing. You can still be a nice person and set boundaries.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

#28

“It is necessary, and even vital, to set standards for your life and the people you allow in it.” ~ Mandy Hale

#29

self care sayings image

“Healthy boundaries assist us in remaining true to our intuition and help us define who we truly are and not who we think we should be. Boundaries are the ones that remove the emphasis from what we can expect from others because we are clear in what we can expect from ourselves.” ~ Ishtar Gonzalez

#30

“Boundaries protect the things that are of value to you. They keep you in alignment with what you have decided you want in life. That means the key to good boundaries is knowing what you want.” ~ Adelyn Birch

#31

“Personal boundaries are the mental, emotional, and physical walls we create to protect ourselves from being used, manipulated, or violated by others. These limits help us to clearly distinguish who we are and what we need, from other people and their needs. Creating and maintaining personal boundaries is a key way to cultivate physical, emotional, and psychological well-being.” ~ Mateo Sol

#32

“Boundaries are a part of self-care. They are healthy, normal, and necessary.” ~ Doreen Virtue

#33

“Healthy boundaries are necessary components for self-care. Without boundaries, we feel depleted, taken advantage of, taken for granted, or intruded upon. Whether it’s in work or in our personal relationships, poor boundaries may lead to resentment, hurt, anger, and burnout.” ~ Ida Soghomonian

#34

“You teach people how to treat you by what you allow, what you stop, and what you reinforce.” ~ Tony Gaskins

#35

“Setting boundaries isn’t always comfortable and people may push back if you say NO to some things or try communicating your needs more clearly. People may try to test your limits, to see how serious you are about drawing the line. Or they may be used to you responding in a certain way (agreeing to take on everything), and they may push back when you try to make some changes. That doesn’t mean that you’re doing something wrong. It may just mean that you need to be clear and consistent until people adjust to the new way of interacting.” ~ Ida Soghomonian

55 Enlightening David Hawkins Quotes

#1

David Hawkins quote image

“With humility comes the willingness to stop trying to control or change other people or life situations or events ostensibly ‘for their own good’. To be a committed spiritual seeker, it is necessary to relinquish the desire to be ‘right’ or of imaginary value to society. In fact, nobody’s ego or belief systems are of any value to society at all. The world is neither good nor bad nor defective, nor is it in need of help or modification because its appearance is only a projection of one’s own mind. No such world exists.” ~David R. Hawkins

#2

“We change the world not by what we say or do, but as a consequence of what we have become.” ~David Hawkins

#3

“Love is misunderstood to be an emotion; actually, it is a state of awareness, a way of being in the world, a way of seeing oneself and others.” ~David R. Hawkins

“Behind all of the “I can’ts” are merely “I won’ts.” The “I won’ts” mean “I am afraid to” or “I am ashamed to” or “I have too much pride to try, for fear I might fail.” Behind that is anger at ourselves and circumstances engendered by pride. Acknowledging and letting go of these feelings brings us up to courage and, with that, finally acceptance and an inner peacefulness, at least as it regards the area which has been surmounted. Apathy and depression are the prices we pay for having settled for and bought into our smallness. It’s what we get for having played the victim and allowed ourselves to be programmed. It’s the price we pay for having bought into negativity. It’s what results from resisting the part of ourselves that is loving, courageous, and great. It results from allowing ourselves to be invalidated by ourselves or others; it is the consequence of holding ourselves in a negative context. In reality, it is only a definition of ourselves that we have unwittingly allowed to happen. The way out is to become more conscious. What does it mean, “to become more conscious”? To begin with, becoming more conscious means to start looking for the truth for ourselves, instead of blindly allowing ourselves to be programmed, whether from without or by an inner voice within the mind, which seeks to diminish and invalidate, focusing on all that is weak and helpless. To get out of it, we have to accept the responsibility that we have bought into the negativity and have been willing to believe it. The way out of this, then, is to start questioning everything.” ~David R. Hawkins

“Handling an emotional crisis leads to greater wisdom and results in lifetime benefits. Fear of life is really the fear of emotions. It is not the facts that we fear but our feelings about them. Once we have mastery over our feelings, our fear of life diminishes.” ~David R. Hawkins

David Hawkins sayings Image

“I just realized that I don’t have to have an opinion about everything – what a relief!” ~David R. Hawkins

#7

“The only way to enhance one’s power in the world is by increasing one’s integrity, understanding, and capacity for compassion.” ~David R. Hawkins

#8

“The other person merely mirrors back what we are projecting onto them.” ~David R. Hawkins

#9

“The basic rule of the psychic universe is that “like attracts like.” Similarly, “love promotes love,” so that the person who has let go of a lot of inner negativity is surrounded by loving thoughts, loving events, loving people, and loving pets. This phenomenon explains many scriptural quotations and common sayings that have puzzled the intellect, such as, “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer,” and “Those who have, get.” As a general rule, therefore, people who are carrying the consciousness of apathy bring poverty circumstances into their lives, and those with a prosperity consciousness bring abundance into their lives. Because all living things are connected on vibrational energy levels, our basic emotional state is picked up and reacted to by all life forms around us. It is well known that animals can instantly read a person’s basic emotional state. There are experiments demonstrating that even the growth of bacteria is affected by human emotions and that plants register measurable reactions to our emotional state.” ~David R. Hawkins

#10

“The person who suffers from inner poverty is relentlessly driven to accumulate on the material level.” ~David R. Hawkins

#11

Enlightenment is not something that occurs in the future, after 50 years of sitting cross-legged and saying “OM.” It is right here, in this instant. The reason you’re not experiencing this state of total peace and timelessness is because it is being resisted. It is being resisted because you are trying to control the moment. If you let go of trying to control your experience of the moment, and if you constantly surrender it like a tone of music, then you live on the crest of this exact always-ness. Experience arises like a note of music. The minute you hear a note, it’s already passing away. The instant you’ve heard it, it’s already dissolving. So every single moment is dissolving as it arises. Let go of anticipating the next moment, trying to control it, trying to hang on to the moment that has just passed. Let go clinging to what has just occurred. Let go trying to control what you think is about to occur. Then you live in an infinite space of non-time and non-event. There is an infinite peace beyond description. And you are home.” ~David R. Hawkins

Enlightening David Hawkins Quotes

#12

self-reflection quote Image

“The world can only see us as we see ourselves.” ~David R. Hawkins

#13

“Repressed and suppressed feelings require counter-energy to keep them submerged. It takes energy to hold down our feelings. As these feelings are relinquished, the energy that had been holding down the negativity is now freed for constructive uses.” ~David R. Hawkins

#14

“Why is true success so relatively effortless? It might be likened to the magnetic field created by an electric current running through a wire. The higher the power of the current, the greater the magnetic field that it generates. And the magnetic field itself then influences everything in its presence. There are very few at the top. The world of the mediocre, however, is one of intense competition, and the bottom of the pyramid is crowded. Charismatic winners are sought out; losers have to strive to be accepted. People who are loving, kind, and thoughtful of others have more friends than they can count; success in every area of life is a reflex to those who are aligned with successful patterns. And the capacity to be able to discern the difference between the strong patterns of success and the weak patterns leading to failure is now available to each of us.” ~David R. Hawkins

#15

“Desire, especially strong desire (e.g., cravingness), frequently blocks our getting what we want.” ~David R. Hawkins

#16

“People think, “Oh, I’m being selfish if I allow somebody to be helpful to my life.” Actually, it’s being generous. Generosity is the willingness to share your life with others. It’s a gift to people to allow them to love you.” ~David R. Hawkins

#17

“Greatness is the courage to overcome obstacles.” ~David R. Hawkins

David Hawkins Quotes and Sayings

#18

David Hawkins Image

“The truly humble cannot be humbled. They are immune to humiliation. They have nothing to defend. There is no vulnerability and, therefore, the truly humble do not experience critical attacks by others. Instead, a truly humble person sees the critical verbalization by another person as merely a statement of the other person’s inner problems.” ~David R. Hawkins

#19

“If we let go of guilt, we will see innocence; however, a guilt-ridden person will see only evil. The basic rule is that we focus on what we have repressed.” ~David R. Hawkins

#20

“Love as depicted in the mass media is not what this level implies. On the contrary, what the world generally refers to as love is an intense emotionality combining physical attraction, possessiveness, control, addiction, eroticism, and novelty. It is usually evanescent and fluctuating, waxing and waning with varying conditions. When frustrated, this emotion often reveals an underlying anger and dependency that it had masked. That love can turn to hate is a common concept, but what is being spoken about rather than love is an addictive sentimentality and attachment. Hate stems from Pride, not Love.” ~David R. Hawkins

#21

Spiritual evolution occurs as the result of removing obstacles and not actually acquiring anything new.” ~David R. Hawkins

#22

“In any situation which involves suffering, we have to ask ourselves: “How long am I willing to pay the cost? What were the karmic propensities to begin with? How much blame is enough? Is there a time to call an end to it? How long will I hang on to it? How much sacrifice am I willing to pay to the other person for their wrongs, real or imaginary? How much guilt is enough? How much self-punishment is enough? When will I give up the secret pleasure of the self-punishment? When does the sentence come to an end?” When we really examine it, we will always find that we have been punishing ourselves for ignorance, naïveté, innocence, and lack of inner education.” ~David R. Hawkins

#23

“Most people are preoccupied with survival in all its subtle forms, and so they reflect primarily fear, anger, and a desire for gain. They have not learned that the state of lovingness is the most powerful of all survival tools.” ~David R. Hawkins

Thought-Provoking David Hawkins Quotes

#24

Dr David R Hawkins Quotes Image

“When we heal something in ourselves, we heal it for the world.” ~David R. Hawkins

#25

“The way to become that exciting person whom people want to know is very easy. We simply picture the kind of person we want to be and surrender all the negative feelings and blocks that prevent us from being that. What happens, then, is that all we need to have and to do will automatically fall into place. This is because, in contrast to having and doing, the level of being has the most power and energy. When it is given priority, it automatically integrates and organizes one’s activities. This mechanism is evidenced in the common experience, “What we hold in mind tends to manifest.” ~David R. Hawkins

#26

“In contrast, nonattachment allows full participation in life without trying to control outcomes.” ~David R. Hawkins

#27

“Real love is unconditional love. Unconditional love is a decision we make within ourselves. The process is one of intention and the decision to be a loving person. If I decide to love you, that is my inner decision. There is nothing the other person can do about it.” ~David R. Hawkins

#28

“It is said that most people spend their lives regretting the past and fearing the future; therefore, they are unable to experience joy in the present.” ~David R. Hawkins

#29

“Because genius is a characteristic of consciousness, genius is also universal. That which is universal is, therefore, theoretically available to every man. The process of creativity and genius are inherent in human consciousness. Inasmuch as every human has within himself the same essence of consciousness, genius is a potential that resides within everyone. It awaits only the right circumstances to express it.” ~David R. Hawkins

#30

“Pain tells us that we have put our survival onto something that is a violation of some principle of consciousness.” ~David R. Hawkins

Inspirational David Hawkins Quotes

#31

Inspirational saying on truth Image

“Facts are accumulated by effort, but truth reveals itself effortlessly.” ~David R. Hawkins

#32

“We could take the same protective actions out of love rather than out of fear. Can we not care for our bodies because we appreciate and value them, rather than out of fear of disease and dying? Can we not be of service to others in our life out of love, rather than out of fear of losing them? Can we not be polite and courteous to strangers because we care for our fellow human beings, rather than because we fear losing their good opinion of us? Can we not do a good job because we care about the quality of our performance and we care about our fellow workers? Can we not perform our job well because we care about the recipients of our services, rather than just the fear of losing our jobs or pursuing our own ambition? Can we not accomplish more by cooperation, rather than by fearful competition? Can we not drive carefully because we have a high regard for ourselves and care for our welfare and those who love us, rather than because we fear an accident? On a spiritual level, isn’t it more effective if, out of compassion and identification with our fellow human beings, we care for them, rather than trying to love them out of fear of God’s punishment if we don’t?” ~David R. Hawkins

#33

“If we dump our negative feelings on others, they experience it as an attack, and they, in turn, are forced to suppress, express, or escape the feelings; therefore, the expression of negativity results in the deterioration and destruction of relationships. A far better alternative is to take responsibility for our own feelings and neutralize them. Then, only positive feelings remain to be expressed.” ~David R. Hawkins

#34

“Emotions themselves are actually the cause of the basic fear that drives everyone to seek security constantly.” ~David R. Hawkins

#35

“If you think a guilty thought and have somebody test your muscle strength, you will see that the muscle instantly goes weak. Your cerebral hemisphere has become desynchronized and all of your energy meridians are thrown out of balance. Nature, therefore, says that guilt is destructive.” ~David R. Hawkins

#36

“The greater our attachment to that which is outside of ourselves, the greater is our overall level of fear and vulnerability to loss. We can ask ourselves why we feel so incomplete. “Why am I so empty within myself that I have to search for solutions in the form of attachment and dependency on others?” ~David R. Hawkins

David Hawkins Quotes

#37

self-identity quote Image

”The body is like a companion, a friendly pet that follows one around…One can continue to own the body and be responsible for it without identifying with it as one’s identity.” ~David Hawkins

#38

“All of us have available at all times a computer far more advanced than the most elaborate artificial intelligence machine—the human mind itself.” ~David R. Hawkins

#39

“Healing invokes the power of compassion, both for yourself and for others… At this point, the healed may become a healer.” ~David Hawkins

#40

“One is not the victim of mentation but instead is the very originator by virtue of intention to extract projected value. With this understanding, one is free from being dominated by the false “I” of the experiencer.” ~David Hawkins

#41

“No amount of riches can compensate for an inner feeling of poverty.” ~David R. Hawkins

#42

“The effect on human consciousness of the experience of the Presence of God is subjectively transformative and identical throughout human history. It leaves a timeless mark that is verifiable as a calibration of a recorded level of consciousness.” ~David Hawkins

#43

“The decision to overlook the seeming inequities of life instead of reacting to them is a choice.” ~David Hawkins

#44

“Totalitarian systems are notably devoid of humor at every level. Laughter, which brings acceptance and freedom, is a threat to their rule through force and intimidation. It is hard to oppress people who have a good sense of humor. Beware the humorless, whether in a person, institution, or belief system; it is always accompanied by an impulse to control and dominate, even if its proclaimed objective is to create prosperity or peace.” ~David R. Hawkins

David Hawkins Quotes

#45

David Hawkins quote on fear image

“Fear of the future no longer exists when the past has been healed.” ~David Hawkins

#46

“The evolution of consciousness requires a wide range of opportunities and a playing field that affords almost unlimited options for development. If human life represents a learning process, then society is the ideal school that affords an extremely wide range of options for numerous levels of consciousness to develop, progress, define, identify, and grasp endless subtleties as well as learn more gross lessons. The ego is extremely tenacious and therefore often seems to require extreme conditions before it lets go of a positionality. It often takes the collective experience of millions of people over many centuries to learn even what appears upon examination to be a simple and obvious truth, namely, that peace is better than war or love is better than hate.” ~David R. Hawkins

#47

“What the addict is seeking is not to be ashamed of. The whole spiritual world wants to reach that blissful state of consciousness. Change your technique, not your aspiration. The state doesn’t have to be sought; it is always within us.” ~David R. Hawkins

#48

“The real source of “stress” is actually internal; it is not external, as people would like to believe.” ~David R. Hawkins

#49

“Self-awareness is increased much more rapidly by observing feelings rather than thoughts. The thoughts associated with even one feeling may literally run into the thousands. The understanding of the underlying emotion and its correct handling is, therefore, more rewarding and less time-consuming than dealing with one’s thoughts.” ~David R. Hawkins

#50

“Possessiveness and attachment occur as a consequence of pride. Attachment is, therefore, a potential cause for suffering, because attachment brings about fear of loss and, with loss, we go back into apathy, depression, and grief.” ~David R. Hawkins

#51

“Every life experience, no matter how “tragic,” contains a hidden lesson. When we discover and acknowledge the hidden gift that is there, a healing takes place.” ~David R. Hawkins

#52

David Hawkins quote on God Image

“God is immutable and cannot be manipulated into granting favors or seduced by bargaining or adulation. Worship benefits the worshipper by reinforcing commitment and inspiration. God is still, silent, and unmoving.” ~David Hawkins

#53

“From previous studies, it was learned that everyone is born under optimal conditions for karmic opportunities; therefore, it is wise to judge not, for what appears as misery or catastrophe may be the doorway to liberation for those who have negative karma to undo. Thus, seemingly catastrophic events may be the very essential and necessary elements for the evolution of the soul.” ~David R. Hawkins

#54

“Apathy and depression are the prices we pay for having settled for and bought into our smallness. It’s what we get for having played the victim and allowed ourselves to be programmed. It’s the price we pay for having bought into negativity. It’s what results from resisting the part of ourselves that is loving, courageous, and great.” ~David R. Hawkins

#55

“Sometimes, it is best not to tell people that you love them because they’ll get scared and think that you have designs on them or you want something from them. Frankly, some people are afraid and suspicious of love; therefore, you love such people without telling them. Lovingness is a way of being that transforms everything around you because of the radiation of that energy. It happens of its own. We don’t have to “do” anything, and we don’t have to call it anything. Love is the energy that silently transfigures every situation.” ~David R. Hawkins
