Spiritual Quotes To Help You On Your Way


Spiritual Quotes - To Help You On Your Way



You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.- Swami Vivekananda

Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force - that thoughts rule the world.- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Physical strength can never permanently withstand the impact of spiritual force.- Franklin D.Roosevelt

It is not the end of the physical body that should worry us. Rather, our concern must be to live while we're alive - to release our inner selves from the spiritual death that comes with living behind a facade designed to conform to external definitions of who and what we are.- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

You are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being immersed in a human experience.- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Love in its essence is spiritual fire.- Lucius Annaeus Seneca

By having a reverence for life, we enter into a spiritual relation with the world By practicing reverence for life we become good, deep, and alive.- Albert Schweitzer

Developing the muscles of the soul demands no competitive spirit, no killer instinct, although it may erect pain barriers that the spiritual athlete must crash through.- Germaine Greer

Love is a sacred reserve of energy; it is like the blood of spiritual evolution.- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Maturity is the ability to think, speak and act your feelings within the bounds of dignity. The measure of your maturity is how spiritual you become during the midst of your frustrations.- Samuel Ullman

Ultimately spiritual awareness unfolds when you're flexible, when you're spontaneous, when you're detached, when you're easy on yourself and easy on others.- Deepak Chopra

The spiritual path - is simply the journey of living our lives. Everyone is on a spiritual path; most people just don't know it.- Marianne Williamson

    Friday Recipe - Muqueca - Delicious Brazilian Fish Stew

    Friday Recipe - Muqueca - Delicious Brazilian Fish Stew




    Muqueca is a fish stew with tomatoes, red peppers, onions, coconut milk and palm oil. It's quite simple to prepare and goes very well with plain white rice. Although Muqueca comes from the North Eastern state of Bahia, it's eaten throughout Brazil.



    INGREDIENTS
    Soup
    1 1/2 to 2 lbs of fillets of firm white fish such as halibut, swordfish, or cod, rinsed in cold water, pin bones removed, cut into large portions
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    4 Tbsp lime or lemon juice
    Salt
    Freshly ground black pepper
    Olive oil
    1 cup chopped spring onion, or 1 medium yellow onion, chopped or sliced
    1/4 cup green onion greens, chopped
    1/2 yellow and 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded, de-stemmed, chopped (or sliced)
    2 cups chopped (or sliced) tomatoes
    1 Tbsp paprika (Hungarian sweet)
    Pinch red pepper flakes
    1 large bunch of cilantro, chopped with some set aside for garnish
    1 14-ounce can coconut milk
    Rice
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1/2 onion, chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 cup white rice
    1 3/4 cups boiling water (check your rice package for the appropriate ratio of liquid to rice for the type of rice you are using)
    1 teaspoon salt
    METHOD
    1 Place fish pieces in a bowl, add the minced garlic and lime juice so that the pieces are well coated. Sprinkle generously all over with salt and pepper. Keep chilled while preparing the rest of the soup.
    2 If you are planning on serving the soup with rice, start on the rice. Bring a couple cups of water to a boil. Heat one Tbsp of olive oil in a medium saucepan on medium high heat. Add the chopped 1/2 onion and cook, stirring, until the onion is translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds more, until the garlic is fragrant. Add the raw white rice and stir to coat completely with the oil, onions, and garlic. Add the boiling water. (The amount depends on your brand of rice, check the package. If no amounts are given, add 1 3/4 cup of water for every cup of rice.) Stir in 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a simmer, then lower the heat, cover, and let cook for 15 minutes, after which, remove from heat until ready to serve with the soup.
