Inspiring Spiritual Awakening Quotes and Phrases

Spiritual Awakening Quotes

Spiritual awakening means inner awakening. It means expanding your consciousness beyond your present reality and beyond your mind and body. It is expanding your consciousness beyond limits. It is taking your awareness beyond the body and the ego.

Spiritual awakening is like bursting your consciousness beyond the Earth, and out, into outer space. In this state, your consciousness goes beyond limits. In this state, there is inner peace and happiness, undisturbed by whatever is happening around you.

When you are spiritually awake you realize your Inner Self, and who you really are. You realize that you are an inseparable part of the Cosmos.

One can live an ordinary life, have a job and family, be active in the world, and yet, enjoy a state of spiritual awakening.

Meditation, the development of concentration and positive emotional detachment are some of the steps toward gaining spiritual awakening and enlightenment.
