Spiritual Enlightenment Quotes
This is one of my favorite spiritual enlightenment quotes …
A University Professor went to see an enlightened Master, to find out more about spiritual enlightenment.
As their meeting continued ‘The Master’ was pouring tea and continued to pour even though the cup was overflowing.
The Professor cried. “Enough! No more will go in!”
‘The Master’ replied “Like this cup you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you spiritual enligtenment unless you first empty your cup?”
That’s a great summary of spiritual enlightenment. It’s not something that you find. You become enlightened when you discard aspects of your ego that block your connection with the divine.
In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired. In the pursuit of Tao, every day something is dropped.
Here are two more spiritual enlightenment quotes…
We cannot hold a torch to light another person’s path without brightening our own.
He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened.
The way to achieve spiritual enlightenment is to work on two things.
1. Creating a still mind.
2. Clearing your emotional baggage
BUT to do these two things you need to understand many things.
1. What thoughts are and where they originate.
2. How you (the individual) think.
3. Why you think certain thoughts and not others.
4. How to correct your thought process.
5. What your emotions are.
6. How to feel your emotions.
7. How to render your emotions powerless.
