40 Inspirational Sadhguru Quotes On Life

#1

Sadhguru quote on life image

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

#2

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

#3

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

#4

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

#5

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

#6

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

#7

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

#8

Sadhguru about life image

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

#9

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

#10

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

#11

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

#12

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

#13

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

#14

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

#15

Sadhguru saying on life image

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

#16

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

#17

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

#18

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

#19

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

#20

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

#21

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

#22

Sadhguru quote on celebration image

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

#23

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

#24

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

#25

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

#26

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

#27

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

#28

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

#29

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

#30

Sadhguru on jealousy image

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

#31

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

#32

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

#33

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

#34

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

#35

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

#36

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

#37

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

#38

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

#39

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

#40

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

Do you feel connected to some of your friends on a deeper spiritual level? Then this article is for you! In this article, we want to share with you beautiful soul friend quotes that will inspire you to look at your friendships from a different angle and discover a deeper spiritual connection in your relationships!

20 Inspirational Soul Friend Quotes

#1

soul friend quote mage

“Having a soulmate is not always about love. You can find your soulmate in a friendship.”

#2

“To me friendship is one of the most pure forms of love among humans because it (rarely) receives any form of sexual or monetary gratification/compensation; just the joy of connecting deeply with another. Perhaps this is why we love and worship our pets so much? They often provide the only form of true soul friendship we can find immediately in our lives. The love of a pet is an unconditional love. Can you say the same for yourself or for others?” ~ Aletheia Luna

#3

Soul friends share an interpersonal bond that grows over time. They are honest, loyal, available, and understanding. More so, they are the people who will check on you, ensuring you are not lonely or living in isolation.” ~ Katya Ki

#4

“What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined to strengthen each other?” ~ George Eliot

#5

friendship quotes image

“Happiness is a collection of joyful experiences shared with soul friends. Get together and have some fun!” ~ Amy Leigh Mercree

#6

Anam Cara means “soul friend”. It describes two people who are eternally connected. Who are open and fully themselves, hiding nothing and expecting nothing. These people recognize your beauty and light. They see you for exactly who you are. You’re comfortable in their presence.” ~ Maxie McCoy

#7

“And sometimes if you’re really lucky, you’ll find out that your soulmate was disguised as your best friend the whole time.”

#8

“Soul friends share lots of memories; ups and downs that they learn to tolerate each other’s flaws. Likewise, a soul friend will not take advantage of the other’s kindness to hurt them. Instead, they overlook offenses for the sake of their friendship.” ~ Katya Ki

#8

soul friendship quotes image

“A soulmate is the one person whose love is powerful enough to motivate you to meet your soul, to do the emotional work of self-discovery, of awakening.” ~ Kenny Loggins

#9

“Imagine meeting someone who even understood the dustiest corners of your mixed-up soul.”

#10

“Before we discover our soul friends, life seems quite normal. Then, the soul friend comes along; all of a sudden you cannot imagine a life without them. Most soul friends have never thought of a time when they will have to part ways. Indeed, soul friendship makes the soul buddies feel incredibly full.” ~ Katya Ki

#11

“A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise.” ~ Richard Bach

#12

spiritual connection quotes image

”A true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

#13

“When soul friends converse, they are in tune with one another. Hence, one of them may not agree with what the other is saying but will listen actively all the same. In contrast, most frenemies tolerate the friendship for as long as it suits them. Hence, they are guilty of selective listening. Hence, most soul friendships are free of drama, frustrating compromise, or misunderstandings.” ~ Katya Ki

#14

“A soul friend wants to help you grow and build you up rather than tear you down… because why would they want to see you suffer? They don’t get any benefit from it. For this reason a soul friend is transparent and forthcoming with their critiques, and doesn’t resort to passive-aggression, bitchiness, or pretense. They trust in the friendship enough to know that an embarrassing revelation won’t toss the connection onto the rocks.” ~ Aletheia Luna

#15

“Soul friends weigh their words when they want to criticize each other. That is, they consider the other person’s emotional wellbeing, and are out to find solutions, not just identify a problem. In contrast, negative criticism leaves one of the friends feeling superior to the other.” ~ Katya Ki

#16

soul friendship quote image

“What is a ‘soul friendship’? A connection that goes far beyond the physical, even the emotional. A bond that is spiritual – two souls vibing and intertwining with one another in celebration, in understanding, in passion, in peace.” ~ Marisa Donnelly

#17

“A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves.” ~ Edgar Cayce

#18

“This is [her] soul group. ’What do you mean?’ It’s a group of souls with whom she resonates closely.” ~ James Redfield

#19

“When you discover your soul friend, you keep each other lively and vital regardless of your circumstances. This friend becomes your spiritual sidekick, nourishing your soul with love and encouragement always.“ ~ Katya Ki

#20

“A soul friend becomes critical to determining who we become as a person. They’re people we form deep connections with. Connections that transform us.” ~ Stephen Cope

Dark Night of the Soul Quotes: 35 Sayings To Support Your Inner Journey

Published

on

Dark Night of the Soul Quotes Image

The Dark Night of the soul is a complicated experience that makes you feel like you are alone in a meaningless universe, having no sense of direction and feeling hopeless. It is a transitional stage when we undergo a ‘spiritual depression’ before getting an intense perception of life. It involves letting go of our past perceptions of our careers, relationships, and belief systems and replacing them with a life appreciation that leads to spiritual growth. In this article, we want to share with you the most enlightening quotes on the Dark Night of the soul that will support your inner journey so that you come out of this stage of your life a more conscious and mature individual.

Here they are 35 Dark Night of the soul quotes!

35 Dark Night of the Soul Quotes

#1

“The term “dark night of the soul,” coined by sixteenth century poet-mystic St. John of the Cross, refers to the kind of spiritual crisis that leads us from profound unknowing to radiant transformation.” ~ Mirabai Starr

#2

“Awareness born of love is the only force that can bring healing and renewal. Out of our love for another person, we become more willing to let our old identities wither and fall away, and enter a dark night of the soul, so that we may stand naked once more in the presence of the great mystery that lies at the core of our being. This is how love ripens us – by warming us from within, inspiring us to break out of our shell and lighting our way through the dark passage to new birth.” ~ John Welwood

#3

“In the process of discovering our true nature, the journey goes down, not up, as if the mountain pointed toward the earth instead of the sky. We move down and down and down, and with us move millions of others, our companions in awakening …Right there we discover a love that will not die.” ~ Pema Chodron

#4

“Psychologically, then, the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ is due to the double fact of the exhaustion of an old state and the growth toward a new state of consciousness. It is a ‘growing pain’ in the organic process of the self’s attainment of the Absolute. The great mystics, creative geniuses in the realm of character, have known instinctively how to turn these psychic disturbances to spiritual profit.” ~ Evelyn Underhill

Dark Night of the Soul Quotes

#5

Light Within Quote Image

“When everything around you becomes real dark, it’s easier to find the light within.” ~ Bert McCoy

#6

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

#7

“It is only when we are truly alone, without someone else to lean on, left with our own inner solitude that we can undergo a process of change.The introspection that is needed to bring out the light that has dwindled down to ash and reignite the fire of our being. So let the darkness shape you, let it reform you, let it cradle you and birth you into a new life. Let the spark flame again, in the darkness is where you will find it.” ~ LJ Vanier

#8

Enlightenment arrives like a thief in the middle of the dark night of the soul.” ~ Stefan Emunds

#9

Inner Light Quote Image

“The dark sky helps to see the stars… The dark night of the soul helps us to see the light within.” ~ Bert McCoy

#10

“While the Dark Night of the Soul is a process of death, the Spiritual Awakening Process is the rebirth.” ~ Mateo Sol

#11

“The journey of the dark night of the soul is where we learn who we are, without people telling us.” ~ Adèle Green

#12

“You necessarily have to be lost, before you’re found.” ~ T. Scott McLeod

#13

dark night of the soul quote image

“The Dark Night of the Soul is not merely “having a bad day” or even a week. The Dark Night is a long, pervasive, and very dark experience. If you’re experiencing the Dark Night of the Soul, you will constantly carry around within you a sense of being lost. Your heart will constantly, in some shape or form, be in mourning, and this is because you long deep down to feel the presence of your Soul again.” ~ Aletheia Luna

#14

“The dark night of the soul is a journey into light, a journey from your darkness into the strength and hidden resources of your soul.” ~ Caroline Myss

#15

“When we lose touch with our Souls, we lose touch with our inner guidance, wisdom, and strength. Sometimes, it can take us many years to get back in touch with the divine presence within us. This period of feeling lost and disconnected from the divine is called the Dark Night of the Soul.” ~ Mateo Sol

#16

“There may come a time when you believe you have reached the end of the road in the darkest night. That will be the moment when a dazzling new day dawns on your horizon.” ~ Anthon St. Maarten

Dark Night of the Soul Quotes

#17

quotes on the dark night of the soul image

”There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Souls. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” ~ Carl Jung

#18

“The dark night of the soul is when you have lost the flavor of life but have not yet gained the fullness of divinity. So it is that we must weather that dark time, the period of transformation when what is familiar has been taken away and the new richness is not yet ours.” ~ Ram Dass

#19

“The dark night of the soul comes just before revelation.” ~ Joseph Campbell

#20

“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it emotionally. A higher paradox confounds emotion as well as reason and there are long periods in the lives of all of us, and of the saints when the truth as revealed by faith is hideous, emotionally disturbing, downright repulsive. Witness the dark night of the soul in individual saints. Right now the whole world seems to be going through a dark night of the soul.” ~ Flannery O’Connor

#21

quotes on rebirth image

”There can be no rebirth without a dark night of the soul, a total annihilation of all that you believed in and thought that you were.” ~ Vilayat Inayat Khan

#22

“In community, where you have all the affection you could ever dream of, you feel that there is a place where even community cannot reach. That’s a very important experience. In that loneliness, which is like a dark night of the soul, you learn that God is greater than community.” ~ Henri Nouwen

#23

“You don’t go through a deep personal transformation without some kind of dark night of the soul.” ~ Sam Keen

#24

“To heal the wound, you have to go into the dark night of the soul.” ~ Tori Amos

#25

inner chaos image

”One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

#26

“If I believe in anything, it is in the dark night of the soul. Awe is my religion, and mystery is its church.” ~ Charles Simic

#27

“I believe that the dark night of the soul is a common spiritual experience. I believe, too, that the answer is continued seeking and perseverance. It helps to know that others have endured a loss of faith.” ~ Julia Cameron

#28

“We cannot heal what we cannot see. We cannot evolve if we cannot see. The Dark Night to me allows us to see what we otherwise could not see, as it will bring the deepest often most rejected aspects of our being into consciousness: our fear, our rage, areas where we lack acceptance, of illness, of suffering, of God, our ego identification.” ~ Himayat

#29

Dark place sayings image

”Sometimes when you’re in a dark place you think you’ve been buried, but you’ve actually been planted.” ~ Christine Caine

#30

“You become the wounded healer, someone who has made the descent and knows the territory. You take on depth of color and range of feeling. Your intelligence is now more deeply rooted and not dependent only on facts and reason. Your darkness has given you character and color and capacity. Now you are free to make a real contribution. It is a gift of your dark night of the soul!” ~ Thomas Moore

#31

“The dark night of the soul represents this time of being “in-between” worlds; it marks the always “in the dark” transition that takes place as the consciousness of the seeker of truth moves out of one order of existence, and into another (higher) one.” ~ Guy Finley

#32

“Be assured, if you should experience “the dark night of the soul” in any of its many forms, you are a person of significant potential, that God is challenging to enter a new level of being, which is beyond the domination of the lesser values of the material world. It is a humble beginning, but the humble do, indeed, inherit the earth!” ~ Dr. Meredith J. Sprunger

#33

dark night of the soul sayings image

”Only those willing to walk through the dark night will be able to see the beauty of the moon and the brilliance of the stars.” ~ Archbishop Socrates Vilegas

#34

“Healers are spiritual warriors who have found that courage to defeat the darkness of their souls. Awakening and rising from the depths of their deepest fears, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes. Reborn with a wisdom and strength that creates a light that shines bright enough to help, encourage, and inspire others out of their own darkness.” ~ Melanie Koulouris

#35

“If you could get rid of yourself just once,
The secret of secrets would open to you.
The face of the unknown, hidden beyond the universe
Would appear on the mirror of your perception.”
~ Rumi
