Don't look for meaning; just sit, just accept. Remember that from a withered tree, a flower blooms. Simple living is consolation. Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.

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.
