60 Enlightening Pema Chodron Quotes

#1

inspirational quotes on inner peace Image

“You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.”
― Pema Chodron

#2

“People get into a heavy-duty sin and guilt trip, feeling that if things are going wrong, that means that they did something bad and they are being punished. That’s not the idea at all. The idea of karma is that you continually get the teachings that you need to open your heart. To the degree that you didn’t understand in the past how to stop protecting your soft spot, how to stop armoring your heart, you’re given this gift of teachings in the form of your life, to give you everything you need to open further.”
― Pema Chodron

#3

“If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.”
― Pema Chodron

#4

“When you open yourself to the continually changing, impermanent, dynamic nature of your own being and of reality, you increase your capacity to love and care about other people and your capacity to not be afraid. You’re able to keep your eyes open, your heart open, and your mind open. And you notice when you get caught up in prejudice, bias, and aggression. You develop an enthusiasm for no longer watering those negative seeds, from now until the day you die. And, you begin to think of your life as offering endless opportunities to start to do things differently.”
― Pema Chodron

#5

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”
― Pema Chodron

#6

“Once there was a young warrior. Her teacher told her that she had to do battle with fear. She didn’t want to do that. It seemed too aggressive; it was scary; it seemed unfriendly. But the teacher said she had to do it and gave her the instructions for the battle. The day arrived. The student warrior stood on one side, and fear stood on the other. The warrior was feeling very small, and fear was looking big and wrathful. They both had their weapons. The young warrior roused herself and went toward fear, prostrated three times, and asked, “May I have permission to go into battle with you?” Fear said, “Thank you for showing me so much respect that you ask permission.” Then the young warrior said, “How can I defeat you?” Fear replied, “My weapons are that I talk fast, and I get very close to your face. Then you get completely unnerved, and you do whatever I say. If you don’t do what I tell you, I have no power. You can listen to me, and you can have respect for me. You can even be convinced by me. But if you don’t do what I say, I have no power.” In that way, the student warrior learned how to defeat fear. ”
― Pema Chödrön

#7

Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth”
― Pema Chodron

Pema Chodron Quotes

#8

Pema Chodron Quote Image

“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.”
― Pema Chodron

#9

“There is a story of a woman running away from tigers. She runs and runs and the tigers are getting closer and closer. When she comes to the edge of a cliff, she sees some vines there, so she climbs down and holds on to the vines. Looking down, she sees that there are tigers below her as well. She then notices that a mouse is gnawing away at the vine to which she is clinging. She also sees a beautiful little bunch of strawberries close to her, growing out of a clump of grass. She looks up and she looks down. She looks at the mouse. Then she just takes a strawberry, puts it in her mouth, and enjoys it thoroughly. Tigers above, tigers below. This is actually the predicament that we are always in, in terms of our birth and death. Each moment is just what it is. It might be the only moment of our life; it might be the only strawberry we’ll ever eat. We could get depressed about it, or we could finally appreciate it and delight in the preciousness of every single moment of our life.”
― Pema Chödrön

#10

“If someone comes along and shoots an arrow into your heart, it’s fruitless to stand there and yell at the person. It would be much better to turn your attention to the fact that there’s an arrow in your heart…”
― Pema Chödrön

#11

“The only reason we don’t open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don’t feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else’s eyes. ”
― Pema Chodron

#12

“We don’t set out to save the world; we set out to wonder how other people are doing and to reflect on how our actions affect other people’s hearts.”
― Pema Chodron

#13

“As human beings, not only do we seek resolution, but we also feel that we deserve resolution. However, not only do we not deserve resolution, we suffer from resolution. We don’t deserve resolution; we deserve something better than that. We deserve our birthright, which is the middle way, an open state of mind that can relax with paradox and ambiguity.”
― Pema Chödrön

Inspirational Pema Chodron Quotes

#14

!!!“Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know. Nothing ever really attacks us except our own confusion. perhaps there is no solid obstacle except our own need to protect ourselves from being touched. Maybe the only enemy is that we don’t like the way reality is now and therefore wish it would go away fast. But what we find as practitioners is that nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know. If we run a hundred miles an hour to the other end of the continent in order to get away from the obstacle, we find the very same problem waiting for us when we arrive. It just keeps returning with new names, forms, manifestations until we learn whatever it has to teach us about where we are separating ourselves from reality, how we are pulling back instead of opening up, closing down instead of allowing ourselves to experience fully whatever we encounter, without hesitating or retreating into ourselves.”
― Pema Chödrön

#15

“Do I prefer to grow up and relate to life directly, or do I choose to live and die in fear?”
― Pema Chodron

#16

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

#17

“The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.”
― Pema Chödrön

#18

“We habitually erect a barrier called blame that keeps us from communicating genuinely with others, and we fortify it with our concepts of who’s right and who’s wrong. We do that with the people who are closest to us and we do it with political systems, with all kinds of things that we don’t like about our associates or our society. It is a very common, ancient, well-perfected device for trying to feel better. Blame others… Blaming is a way to protect your heart, trying to protect what is soft and open and tender in yourself. Rather than own that pain, we scramble to find some comfortable ground.”
― Pema Chodron

#19

“Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there’s a big disappointment, we don’t know if that’s the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that. We don’t know anything. We call something bad; we call it good. But really we just don’t know.”
― Pema Chödrön

#20

“When things are shaky and nothing is working, we might realize that we are on the verge of something. We might realize that this is a very vulnerable and tender place, and that tenderness can go either way. We can shut down and feel resentful or we can touch in on that throbbing quality.”
― Pema Chödrön

Enlightening Pema Chodron Quotes

#21

Pema Chödrön sayings Image

“The truth you believe in and cling to makes you unavailable to hear anything new.”
― Pema Chödrön

#22

“We think that if we just meditated enough or jogged enough or ate perfect food, everything would be perfect. But from the point of view of someone who is awake, that’s death. Seeking security or perfection, rejoicing in feeling confirmed and whole, self contained and comfortable, is some kind of death. It doesn’t have any fresh air. There’s no room for something to come in and interrupt all that. We are killing the moment by controlling our experience.”
― Pema Chödrön

#23

“So even if the hot loneliness is there, and for 1.6 seconds we sit with that restlessness when yesterday we couldn’t sit for even one, that’s the journey of the warrior.”
― Pema Chödrön

#24

“Hope and fear come from feeling that we lack something; they come from a sense of poverty. We can’t simply relax with ourselves. We hold on to hope, and hope robs us of the present moment. We feel that someone else knows what’s going on, but that there’s something missing in us, and therefore something is lacking in our world.”
― Pema Chödrön

#25

“No one ever tells us to stop running away from fear…the advice we usually get is to sweeten it up, smooth it over, take a pill, or distract ourselves, but by all means make it go away.”
― Pema Chödrön

#26

“We are all capable of becoming fundamentalists because we get addicted to other people’s wrongness.”
― Pema Chodron

#27

“As long as our orientation is toward perfection or success, we will never
learn about unconditional friendship with ourselves, nor will we find
compassion. ”
― Pema Chödrön

Pema Chodron Quotes

#28

Pema Chödrön Image

“When we protect ourselves so we won’t feel pain, that protection becomes like armor, like armor that imprisons the softness of the heart.”
― Pema Chödrön

#29

“Once you create a self-justifying storyline, your emotional entrapment within it quadruples.”
― Pema Chodron

#30

“When you begin to touch your heart or let your heart be touched, you begin to discover that it’s bottomless, that it doesn’t have any resolution, that this heart is huge, vast, and limitless. You begin to discover how much warmth and gentleness is there, as well as how much space.”
― Pema Chödrön

#31

“The more we witness our emotional reactions and understand how they work, the easier it is to refrain.”
― Pema Chödrön

#32

“Be grateful to everyone” is about making peace with the aspects of ourselves that we have rejected… If we were to make a list of people we don’t like – people we find obnoxious, threatening, or worthy of contempt – we would discover much about those aspects of ourselves that we can’t face… other people trigger the karma that we haven’t worked out.”
― Pema Chödrön

#33

“It isn’t the things that happen to us in our lives that cause us to suffer, it’s how we relate to the things that happen to us that causes us to suffer.”
― Pema Chödrön

#34

“The very first noble truth of the Buddha points out that suffering is inevitable for human beings as long as we believe that things last—that they don’t disintegrate, that they can be counted on to satisfy our hunger for security.”
― Pema Chödrön

Pema Chodron Quotes

#35

spiritual warrior image

“Rejoicing in ordinary things is not sentimental or trite. It actually takes guts. Each time we drop our complaints and allow everyday good fortune to inspire us, we enter the warrior’s world.”
― Pema Chödrön

#36

“There is a common misunderstanding among all the human beings who have ever been born on earth that the best way to live is to try to avoid pain and just try to get comfortable. You see this even in insects and animals and birds. All of us are the same. A much more interesting, kind and joyful approach to life is to begin to develop our curiosity, not caring whether the object of our curiosity is bitter or sweet. To lead a life that goes beyond pettiness and prejudice and always wanting to make sure that everything turns out on our own terms, to lead a more passionate, full, and delightful life than that, we must realize that we can endure a lot of pain and pleasure for the sake of finding out who we are and what this world is, how we tick and how our world ticks, how the whole thing just is. If we are committed to comfort at any cost, as soon as we come up against the least edge of pain, we’re going to run; we’ll never know what’s beyond that particular barrier or wall or fearful thing.”
― Pema Chödrön

#37

Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better. It’s about befriending who we are already.”
― Pema Chödrön

#38

“When we touch the center of sorrow, when we sit with discomfort without trying to fix it, when we stay present to the pain of disapproval or betrayal and let it soften us, these are times that we connect with bohdichitta.”
― Pema Chödrön

#39

“It’s hard to know whether to laugh or to cry at the human predicament. Here we are with so much wisdom and tenderness, and—without even knowing it—we cover it over to protect ourselves from insecurity. Although we have the potential to experience the freedom of a butterfly, we mysteriously prefer the small and fearful cocoon of ego.”
― Pema Chödrön

#40

“Not causing harm obviously includes not killing or robbing or lying to people. It also includes not being aggressive – not being aggressive with our actions, our speech, or our minds. Learning not to cause harm to ourselves or others is a basic Buddhist teaching on the healing power of nonaggression. Not harming ourselves or others in the beginning, not harming ourselves or others in the middle, and not harming ourselves or others in the end is the basis of enlightened society.”
― Pema Chödrön

#41

“One can appreciate and celebrate each moment — there’s nothing more sacred. There’s nothing more vast or absolute. In fact, there’s nothing more!”
― Pema Chödrön

Pema Chodron Quotes

#42

Inner Darkness Quotes Image

“Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”
― Pema Chödrön

#43

“At the root of all the harm we cause is ignorance.”
― Pema Chödrön

#44

“We insist on being Someone, with a capital S. We get security from defining ourselves as worthless or worthy, superior or inferior. We waste precious time exaggerating or romanticizing or belittling ourselves with a complacent surety that yes, that’s who we are. We mistake the openness of our being—the inherent wonder and surprise of each moment—for a solid, irrefutable self. Because of this misunderstanding, we suffer.”
― Pema Chödrön

#45

“Honesty without kindness, humor, and goodheartedness can be just mean.”
― Pema Chödrön

#46

“It is only when we begin to relax with ourselves that meditation becomes a transformative process. Only when we relate with ourselves without moralizing, without harshness, without deception, can we let go of harmful patterns. Without maitri (metta), renunciation of old habits becomes abusive. This is an important point.”
― Pema Chodron

#47

“The essence of bravery is being without self-deception.”
― Pema Chödrön

#48

“My experience with forgiveness is that it sort of comes spontaneously at a certain point and to try to force it it’s not really forgiveness. It’s Buddhist philosophy or something spiritual jargon that you’re trying to live up to but you’re just using it against yourself as a reason why you’re not okay.”
― Pema Chodron

Pema Chodron Quotes

#49

Pema Chodron quote on suffering Image

“When we resist change, it’s called suffering. But when we can completely let go and not struggle against it, when we can embrace the groundlessness of our situation and relax into its dynamic quality, that’s called enlightenment.”
― Pema Chödrön

#50

“Patience is the training in abiding with the restlessness of our energy and letting things evolve at their own speed.”
― Pema Chödrön

#51

“Pain is not a punishment, pleasure is not a reward.”
― Pema Chödrön

#52

“We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder and more open to what scares us. We always have this choice.”
― Pema Chödrön

#53

“We can use our personal suffering as the path to compassion for all beings.”
― Pema Chödrön

#54

“The difference between theism and nontheism is not whether one does or does not believe in God. . . Theism is a deep-seated conviction that there’s some hand to hold: if we just do the right things, someone will appreciate us and take care of us. . . Nontheism is relaxing with the ambiguity and uncertainty of the present moment without reaching for anything to protect ourselves.”
― Pema Chodron

#55

“We have two alternatives: either we question our beliefs – or we don’t. Either we accept our fixed versions of reality- or we begin to challenge them. In Buddha’s opinion, to train in staying open and curious – to train in dissolving our assumptions and beliefs – is the best use of our human lives.”
― Pema Chodron

Pema Chodron Quotes

#56

Pema Chödrön on awakening Image

“Times are difficult globally; awakening is no longer a luxury or an ideal. It’s becoming critical. We don’t need to add more depression, more discouragement, or more anger to what’s already here. It’s becoming essential that we learn how to relate sanely to difficult times. The earth seems to be beseeching us to connect with joy and discover our innermost essence. This is the best way that we can benefit others.”
― Pema Chodron

#57

“Maybe the most important teaching is to lighten up and relax. It’s such a huge help in working with our crazy mixed-up minds to remember that what we’re doing is unlocking a softness that is in us and letting it spread. We’re letting it blur the sharp corners of self-criticism and complaint.”
― Pema Chödrön

#58

“Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.”
― Pema Chödrön

#59

“Whether we’re seeking inner peace or global peace or a combination of the two, the way to experience it is to build on the foundation of unconditional openness to all that arises. Peace isn’t an experience free of challenges, free of rough and smooth, it’s an experience that’s expansive enough to include all that arises without feeling threatened.”
― Pema Chödrön

#60

“Awakeness is found in our pleasure and our pain, our confusion and our wisdom, available in each moment of our weird, unfathomable, ordinary everyday lives.”
― Pema Chödrön

“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

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

― Ahmed Salah Al-Mahdi

– James Lovelock

#11

quote on Gaia image

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.

― Chief Seattle (Sealth), Suquamish Chief

#14

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

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

― 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

#20

Mother Earth Quote Image

― 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

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

— Anonymous

#28

Quotes About Tarot: 22 Deep Sayings on the Mystical Purpose of Tarot Cards

Published

on

22 Quotes About Tarot Image

While Tarot cards are usually associated with being able to tell the future, they actually can be used as a tool for understanding the Universal Laws and as a guide to your self-transformation. If you are one of those who know that Tarot cards contain much deeper meaning than just fortune-telling, then this article is for you. Here, we have collected 22 quotes about the Tarot that will inspire you to look into your Tarot deck deeper.

22 Quotes About Tarot

#1

“Remember that the Tarot is a great and sacred arcanum – its abuse is an obscenity in the inner and a folly in the outer. It is intended for quite other purposes than to determine when the tall dark man will meet the fair rich widow.” ~ Jack Parsons

#2

“An imprisoned person with no other book than the Tarot, if he knew how to use it, could in a few years acquire universal knowledge, and would be able to speak on all subjects with unequalled learning and inexhaustible eloquence.” ~ Eliphas Levi

#3

“The Angel Metatron, or Enoch, delivered the Tarot in which the entirety of divine wisdom is enclosed. The Tarot remains written in stone. He also left us the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet. This great master lives in the superior worlds in the world of Atziluth, which is a world of indescribable happiness. According to the Kabbalah, this world is the region of Kether, a very high Sephirah. All Kabbalists base themselves on the Tarot, and it is necessary for them to comprehend the Tarot and study it deeply.” ~ Samael Aun Weor

#4

“The Tarot cards must be considered (1) as separate and complete hieroglyphs, each representing a distinct principle, law, power, or element in Nature; (2) in relation to each other as the effect of one agent operating upon another; and (3) as vowels and consonants of a philosophic alphabet. The laws governing all phenomena are represented by the symbols upon the Tarot cards, whose numerical values are equal to the numerical equivalents of the phenomena. As every structure consists of certain elemental parts, so the Tarot cards represent the components of the structure of philosophy. Irrespective of the science or philosophy with which the student is working, the Tarot cards can be identified with the essential constituents of his subject, each card thus being related to a specific part according to mathematical and philosophical laws.” ~ Manly P. Hall

#5
Tarot quotes image

“We hold a universe in our hands when we pick up a deck of tarot cards.” ~ Lon Milo DuQuette

#6

“Once upon a time, tarot reading was about discovering what your future held. These days tarot helps you craft exactly the future you desire.” ~ Sasha Graham

#7

“Some people believe tarot cards are a form of black magic or senseless new age mysticism but for me, they are a practical way of talking directly to the universe.” ~ Toyah Willcox

#8

“To make the Tarot speak is our objective, but the arcana only speak to those who have learned to understand them.” ~ Oswald Wirth

#9
Waite quote on tarot image

“The Tarot embodies symbolical presentations of universal ideas, behind which lie all the implicits of the human mind, and it is in this sense that they contain secret doctrine, which is the realization by the few of truths embedded in the consciousness of all.” ~ A.E. Waite

#10

“The true Tarot is symbolism; it speaks no other language and offers no other signs.” ~ A. E. Waite

#11

“In the Tarot deck, the Fool is depicted as a young man about to step off a cliff into empty air. Most people assume that the Fool will fall. But we don’t see it happen, and a Fool doesn’t know that he’s subject to the laws of gravity. Against all odds, he just might float.” ~ Richard Kadrey

#12

“You are the Secret. Let Tarot explore you.” ~ Shweta Tarot

#13
Tarot reading quote image

“Fear is dangerous, not the tarot. The tarot represents the spectrum of the human condition, the good, the evil, the light, and the dark. Do not fear the darker aspects of the human condition. Understand them. The tarot is a storybook about life, about the greatness of human accomplishment, and also the ugliness we are each capable of.” ~ Benebell Wen

#14

“If you want to understand your emotions, the rationale behind your words so that you can treat the source of your struggles; Tarot is the solution.” ~ Anujj Elviis

#15

“Tarot Cards are your guidance cards.” ~ Nikita Dudani

#16

“The tarot is a perfect representation of the Tree of Life. The ace of each suit represents the top sephira and the two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, and ten of each suit represents its respective sephira on the Tree.” ~ Lon Milo DuQuette

#17
Tarot sayings image

“Tarot helps us look within ourselves to understand our emotions, the reasoning behind our words and conduct, and the source of our conflicts.” ~ Benebell Wen

#18

“The Tree of Life – this figure must be studied very carefully, for it is the basis of the whole system on which the Tarot is based. It is quite impossible to give a complete explanation of this figure, because (for one thing) it is quite universal. Therefore it cannot mean the same to any one person as to any other.” ~ Lon Milo DuQuette

#19

“It is the province of the tarot reader to move backwards, forwards, even sideways in time.” ~ Sasha Graham

#20

“In every deck, the Fool is in a precarious position. Think of all of the idioms we have for taking chances. “Going out on a limb.” “Winging it.” “Break a leg.” “Going for broke.” These all sound really painful, but what they’re about is deciding that being still is not for you. When you see this in a reading, you’ll know it’s time to jump.” ~ Melissa Cynova

#21
Quote about Tarot reading Image

“Tarot Reading is an art based on intuition, interpretation, and perception.” ~ Nikita Dudani

#22

“Tarot is storytelling. It’s what we do when we read the cards. Telling stories imbues us with supernatural power – the power to change our story.” ~ Sasha Graham

Unconditional Love Quotes Image

Unconditional love is love in its purest form that you offer freely. You don’t base it on what someone does for you in return. You simply share your love and want nothing more than their happiness. Unconditional love is a sign of the Heart chakra opening when you start perceiving the world as a living organism where everyone and everything is connected. By radiating unconditional love, you share it not just with one person but the whole world gets affected by its vibration. In this article, we have collected 40 unconditional love quotes to inspire you to love deeper and vibrate higher!

Ram Dass Quote on Unconditional Love Image

“Unconditional love really exists in each of us. It is part of our deep inner being. It is not so much an active emotion as a state of being.” ~ Ram Dass

#2

“The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.” ~ Brian Tracy

#3

“Almost all of you misunderstand what unconditional love is. It is holding vibrational alignment with who you are no matter what is going on around you.” ~ Abraham Hicks

#4

“There is no greater power in Heaven or on Earth than pure, unconditional love. The nature of the God force, the unseen intelligence in all things, which causes the material world and is the center of both the spiritual and physical plane, is best described as pure, unconditional love.” ~ Wayne Dyer

#5

“Nothing you become will disappoint me; I have no preconception that I’d like to see you be or do. I have no desire to foresee you, only to discover you. You can’t disappoint me.” ~ Mary Haskell

#6

“When you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you’d like them to be.” ~ Leo Tolstoy

#11

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

#12

“Unconditional love is being connected to Source in spite on the conditions.” ~ Esther Hicks

#13

“Life is in a love relationship with itself. It is this undercurrent of Divine Love that sustains all spheres of existence and stimulates our individual desire to give and receive love.

#14

“The one thing everybody’s looking for is unconditional love. We all need somebody to love us just the way we are.” ~ Joyce Meyer

#16

“If we make our goal to live a life of compassion and unconditional love, then the world will indeed become a garden where all kinds of flowers can bloom and grow.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

“Love is not a temporary feeling or emotion. Emotions and feelings change, sometimes daily. But true unconditional love is everlasting.”

#18

“I love you means that I accept you for the person that you are and that I don’t wish to change you into someone else. It means that I do not expect perfection from you, just as you don’t expect it from me. I love you means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times. It means loving you when you are in a bad mood or too tired to do the things I want to do. It means loving you when you are down, not just when you’re fun to be with.” ~ Deanne Laura Gilbert

#19
Unconditional Love Quote by Don Miguel Ruiz Image

“Unconditional love allows you to disagree with the choices or beliefs of others while still respecting their right to have them.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz

#20

“A soulmate is someone you can completely be yourself with. Someone with whom you share unconditional love and when you look into each other’s eyes, you know that you are home.” ~ Arielle Ford

#21

“Love is the absence of judgment.” ~ Dalai Lama

#22

“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.” ~ Osho

#23

“The Saint finds her true reason for living in unconditional love and in her ability to give without asking anything in return.” ~ Paulo Coelho

#24

“The world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles…only by a spiritual journey…by which we arrive at the ground at our feet, and learn to be at home. The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love, which includes not only others but ourselves as well.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

#25

“The greatest gift that one human being can give another is unconditional love. It’s the only thing, ultimately, that really matters.” ~ Joy Gardner

#26

“I’m a work in progress, but if I know in my heart that I’m doing my best, that my heart’s in the right place, that I have unconditional love, I feel okay.” ~ Stevie Wonder

#27

“Love has no conditions. When we put conditions, when we put barriers and boundaries, then we lose love. Love is condition-less. Love is barrier-less. Look at the moon, sun, stars, trees. . . they are just on for everyone. When our love also flows for everyone, you become very natural.” ~ Chidanand Saraswati

Unconditional Love Quotes

#28
Love Trauma Quote Image

”Love does not leave you traumatized. Whatever happened to you was not love.”

#29

“I did some more soul searching. I asked myself, “What do I want more than happiness?” and there was only one answer – the only thing that trumps happiness is love. Not the kind of love we are normally taught about, but the kind of unconditional love that is a deep inner state which doesn’t depend on any person, situation or a romantic partner. That’s how I define Love for No Reason: it’s an inner state of love.” ~ Marci Shimoff

#30

“Love is not a because, it’s a no matter what.” ~ Jodi Picoult

#31

“The only way love can last a lifetime is if it’s unconditional. The truth is this: love is not determined by the one being loved but rather by the one choosing to love.” ~ Stephen Kendrick

#32

“To give and not expect return, that is what lies at the heart of love.” ~ Oscar Wilde

#33

“Learning how to love unconditionally is a practice. It requires patience and repetition in order to succeed. This is why we as spiritual practitioners take up a daily meditation practice. It is where we evolve and go higher. Today, start with yourself by asking, “What is truly lovable about me?” And celebrate those things right now. Remember, God is already celebrating you and everything about you every moment.” ~ Michael Beckwith

#34

“There is a special bond between twin soul mates – unconditional love, respect for each other, bringing out the best in each other, and highly compatible.” ~ Julien Offray de La Mettrie

#35

“Listening with undivided attention and unconditional love Is perhaps the greatest gift we can extend to others.” ~ Gerald Jampolsky

#36

“Your real being only flowers with unconditional love. Ambition is against love. Anything that is against love is against you and your real life.” ~ Osho

#37
Deep Love Quote Image

They asked,

“How can you love so deeply?”

I replied:

“Because I love myself deeply. I don’t give in order to gain. There are no price tags on the love that I share. It’s an offering – I give it because I want to, not because I need to.”

#38

“Unconditional love is the greatest gift we can ever give.” ~ Amy Leigh Mercree

#39

“There is nothing to learn about love. Everything is already there, in our genes, in our nature. We don’t have to learn anything except what we invent in this world of illusion. We search for love outside ourselves when love is all around us. Love is everywhere, but we don’t have the eyes to see…Your heart can create any amount of love, not just for yourself, but for the whole world. When we know that our heart is a magical kitchen, we are always generous and our love is completely unconditional.” ~ Miguel Angel Ruiz

#40

Self-love is the foundation of our loving practice. Without it, our other efforts to love fail. Giving ourselves love we provide our inner being with the opportunity to have the unconditional love we may have always longed to receive from someone else.” ~ Bell Hooks
