― Wayne Dyer

“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.”
― Wayne Dyer

#6

“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.”
― Wayne Dyer

#7

“You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.”
― Wayne Dyer

― Wayne Dyer

― Wayne Dyer

#11

“If you knew who walked beside you at all times, on the path that you have chosen, you could never experience fear or doubt again.”
― Wayne Dyer

#12

“Not only do you become what you think about, but the world also becomes what you think about. Those who think that the world is a dark place are blind to the light that might illuminate their lives. Those who see the light of the world view the dark spots as merely potential light.”
― Wayne Dyer

#13

“Once you believe in yourself and see your soul as divine and precious, you’ll automatically be converted to a being who can create miracles.”
― Wayne Dyer

#14

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Wayne Dyer

Heaven on Earth Quote Image

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

“Everything in the universe has a purpose. Indeed, the invisible intelligence that flows through everything in a purposeful fashion is also flowing through you.”
― Wayne Dyer

#17

“No one can create negativity or stress within you. Only you can do that by virtue of how you process your world.”
― Wayne Dyer

#18

“When you squeeze an orange, you’ll always get orange juice to come out. What comes out is what’s inside. The same logic applies to you: when someone squeezes you, puts pressure on you, or says something unflattering or critical, and out of you comes anger, hatred, bitterness, tension, depression, or anxiety, that is what’s inside. If love and joy are what you want to give and receive, change your life by changing what’s inside.”
― Wayne Dyer

#19

“When you abandon making choices, you enter the vast world of excuses.”
― Wayne Dyer

#20

“There is a story concerning the Buddha, who is in the company of a fellow traveler who tests this great teacher with derogatory, insulting, disparaging, and bitter responses to anything the Buddha says. Every day, for three days when the Buddha spoke, the traveler responded by calling him a fool and ridiculing the Buddha in some arrogant fashion. Finally, at the end of the third day, the traveler could stand it no more. He asked, “How is it that you are able to be so loving and kind when all I’ve done for the past three days is dishonor and offend you? Each time I am disobliging to you, you respond in a loving manner. How is this possible?” The Buddha responded with a question of his own for the traveler. “If someone offers you a gift, and you do not accept that gift, to whom does the gift belong?”
― Wayne Dyer

#21

“You must become the producer, director, and actor in the unfolding story of your life.”
― Wayne Dyer

#22

“You are always a valuable, worthwhile human being – not because anybody says so, not because you’re successful, not because you make a lot of money – but because you decide to believe it and for no other reason.”
― Wayne Dyer

#23

“We are not human beings in search of a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings emersed in human experience.”
― Wayne Dyer

#24

“Remind yourself daily that there is no way to happiness; rather, happiness is the way. You may have a long list of goals that you believe will provide you with contentment when they’re achieved, yet if you examine your state of happiness in this moment, you’ll notice that the fulfillment of some previous ambitions didn’t create an enduring sense of joy. Desires can produce anxiety, stress, and competitiveness, and you need to recognize those that do. Bring happiness to every encounter in life, instead of expecting external events to produce joy. By staying in harmony on the path of the Tao, all the contentment you could ever dream of will begin to flow into your life – the right people, the means to finance where you’re headed, and the necessary factors will come together. “Stop pushing yourself,” Lao-Tzu would say, “and feel gratitude and awe for what is. Your life is controlled by something far bigger and more significant than the petty details of your lofty aspirations.”
― Wayne Dyer

#25

Quotes about wisdom image

“Wisdom is knowing I am nothing, love is knowing I am everything, and between the two my life moves.”
― Wayne Dyer

#26

“Not being offended is a way of saying, “I have control over how I’m going to feel, and I choose to feel peaceful regardless of what I observe going on. When you feel offended, you’re practicing judgment. You judge someone else to be stupid, insensitive, rude, arrogant, inconsiderate, or foolish, and then you find yourself upset and offended by their conduct. What you may not realize is that when you judge another person, you do not define them. You define yourself as someone who needs to judge others.”
― Wayne Dyer

#27

“Never underestimate your power to change yourself; never overestimate your power to change others.”
― Wayne Dyer

#28

“Whether it’s your health, wealth, happiness, or any other element of your entire life experience, it is essential to keep in mind the importance of the movement of your attention. You must be obstinate and persistent in not allowing the viewpoints or information of others to alter your inner world. You know what you wish to become and what you would like to manifest for yourself.”
― Wayne Dyer

#29

“When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.”
― Wayne Dyer

#30

“Which snowflake is the most magnificent? Is it possible that they are all magnificent – and that, celebrating their magnificence together they create an awesome display? Then they melt into each other, and into the Oneness. Yet they never go away. They never disappear. They never cease to be. Simply, they change form. And not just once, but several times: from solid to liquid, from liquid to vapor, from the seen to the unseen, to rise again, and then again to return in new displays of breathtaking beauty and wonder. This is Life, nourishing Life.”
― Wayne Dyer

#31

“Your children will see what you’re all about by what you live rather than what you say.”
― Wayne Dyer

#32

“Disease doesn’t exist. Instead of thinking of it as a disease – I’d like for you to think of it for a moment as energy, with a frequency. It is energy with a frequency that is inhabiting your body that is not in harmony with the frequency at which your body was created in association with God. It’s just an incompatible frequency that’s all it is. It’s just a frequency that if it continues to occupy your body, your body cannot survive.”
― Wayne Dyer

#33

“The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.”
― Wayne Dyer

#34

“When expectations are shattered, practice allowing that to be the way it is. Relax, let go, allow, and recognize that some of your desires are about how you think your world should be, rather than how it is in that moment. Become an astute observer…judge less and listen more.”
― Wayne Dyer

#35

Wayne Dyer Quotes on emotions image

“Feelings are not just emotions that happen to you. Feelings are reactions you choose to have.”
― Wayne Dyer

#36

“When you’re connected to the power of intention, everywhere you go, and everyone you meet is affected by you and the energy you radiate. As you become the power of intention, you’ll see your dreams being fulfilled almost magically, and you’ll see yourself creating huge ripples in the energy fields of others by your presence and nothing more.”
― Wayne Dyer

#37

“I am thankful to all those who said no. It’s because of them, I did it myself.”
― Wayne Dyer

#38

“Successful people make money. It’s not that people who make money become successful, but that successful people attract money. They bring success to what they do.”
― Wayne Dyer

#39

“Focus on understanding yourself instead of blaming others.”
― Wayne Dyer

#40

“Everything shows up in Divine time. We get what we need on the schedule of a force much larger than ourselves. This invisible force moves the pieces around in its own way, in its own time, to harmonize with the perfect precision that defines every cubic inch of space and time.”
― Wayne Dyer

#41

“You get treated in life the way you teach people to treat you.”
― Wayne Dyer

#42

“The creator has planted within every creature a fragment of himself, a spark, a spirit of the same nature as himself and, thanks to this spirit, every creature can become a creator. And this means that, instead of always waiting for their needs to be satisfied by some external source, human beings can work inwardly by means of their thought, their will, and their spirit to obtain the nourishing healing elements they need. This is why the teaching I bring you is of the spirit, of the creator and not of matter.”
― Wayne Dyer

#43

“Heaven is a state of mind, not a location.”
― Wayne Dyer

#44

Spend an hour, a day, a week, or a month practicing not giving unsolicited advice. Stop yourself for an instant and call upon your silent knowing. Ask a question, rather than giving advice or citing an example from your life, and then just listen to yourself and the other person. As Lao-Tzu would like you to know, that’s “the highest state of man.”
― Wayne Dyer

#45

Wayne Walter Dyer Quote Image

“You feel good not because the world is right, but your world is right because you feel good.”
― Wayne Dyer

#46

“You get to a place where you begin to be guided by something greater than yourself. You stop fighting and striving (indeed the need to expend this type of energy is often a strong indicator that you are not in flow and where you are meant to be) and instead, surrender to your higher purpose and be guided from there, allowing things to happen, trusting in source, focusing on your why and letting go of the how.”
― Wayne Dyer

#47

“Any problem, and I emphasize “any” problem, represents our inability to consciously connect to our Source in the moment.”
― Wayne Dyer

#48

“When you live at or below ordinary levels of awareness, you spend a great deal of time and energy finding opportunities to be offended. Today we’re going to examine how you can stop allowing yourself to be offended by others and instead respond positively with love and forgiveness. A news report, an economic downturn, a rude stranger, a fashion miscue, someone cursing, a sneeze, a black cloud, any cloud, an absence of clouds — just about anything will do if you’re looking for an occasion to be offended. Along the extra mile, you’ll never find anyone engaging in such absurdities. Become a person who refuses to be offended by anyone, any thing, or any set of circumstances. If something takes place and you disapprove, by all means, state what you feel from your heart; and if possible, work to eliminate it and then let it go. Most people operate from the ego and really need to be right. So, when you encounter someone saying things that you find inappropriate, or when you know they’re wrong, wrong, wrong, forget your need to be right and instead say, “You’re right about that!” Those words will end the potential conflict and free you from being offended. Your desire is to be peaceful – not to be right, hurt, angry, or resentful. If you have enough faith in your own beliefs, you’ll find that it’s impossible to be offended by the beliefs and conduct of others. Not being offended is a way of saying, “I have control over how I’m going to feel, and I choose to feel peaceful regardless of what I observe going.”
― Wayne Dyer

#49

“Remind yourself that you cannot fail at being yourself.”
― Wayne Dyer

#50

“Release others’ expectations. If you focus on what others expect of you, you’ll continue to act on and attract more of what they desire for you. But when you can shift your inner thoughts to what you intend to create and attract into your life, you will no longer have to give mental energy to what others want for you.”
Wayne Dyer

#51

“It is the space between the notes that makes the music. Without that emptiness, that silence in between, there is no music, only a noise.”
― Wayne Dyer

#52

“It’s through giving that we receive; it’s through acts of kindness directed toward others that our immune systems are strengthened and even our serotonin levels increased!”
― Wayne Dyer

#53

“A belief system is nothing more than a thought you’ve thought over and over again.”
― Wayne Dyer

#54

“Your past history and all of your hurts are no longer here in your physical reality. Don’t allow them to be here in your mind, muddying your present moments. Your life is like a play with several acts. Some of the characters who enter have short roles to play, others, much larger. Some are villains and others are good guys. But all of them are necessary, otherwise, they wouldn’t be in the play.”
― Wayne Dyer

#55

“Don’t allow the approval and attention of others to destroy you. Remain humble and grateful for all your accomplishments, and know that a force greater than your ego is always at work in your life.”
― Wayne Dyer

soul friend quotes image

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

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
