what are the quotes that changed you for good?
Tat Tvam Ayi - It means You're That Mother!
That quote is actually three names from the Lalita Sahasranamam (Names 425-426-427 and 907). It's a reference to the Divine Mother. Whenever I read or chant that, my eyes well up. And, I instantly feel the presence of Devi in me. It feels so magical that it almost reformed my life. Why? I don't know! 🙃 Perhaps, it reminds me of Devi's generous shower of Grace on me?! 🤔
We can all reach the pinnacle of spirituality without torturing our bodies in extreme conditions. - Sri Devi Om
Gaarvi, I have an original quote said to me by my friend that literally stopped me in my tracks and made me re-evaluate my attitude and as a consequence it completely changed my life for the better ..my friend said to me one day
" The difference between you and me is that there is so much shit in my life and yet I try so hard to look for the beauty in it, whereas there is so much beauty in your life, and yet you try so hard to look for the shit in it "
Your life is your own responsibility.
Hi! No quote has ever changed me for good but here is one by French philosopher Albert Camus that really kindled a spark inside me when I heard it for the first time on YouTube seven years ago:
In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.
In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.
In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.
I realized, through it all, that…
In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.
"OmSwami" - this is the quote that changed me forever.
Quotes are part of my life they help us when we act on them...
Recent one that stays with me...
realisation can happen any moment its how you live with that realisation is what matters - Dr.Anu
It changed my life for good when I heard (paraphrased):
'You are not your thoughts. You can change your thoughts and think about what you want, at will.'
This understanding can get you out of any situation and it still helps me after nearly a decade:)
The recent quote which inspired me
When you avoid conflict to keep the peace, you start the war within yourself.........Cheryl Richardson
These three quotes have transformed in ways unimaginable:
“All differences in this world are of degree, and not of a kind because oneness is the secret of everything.” - Swami Vivekananda
(He said never think that person is a cheat and I am not or that person is greedy or I am not, because that person is just doing it in more degree, it is somewhere within you too in a less degree) - So, This quote changed the way I form opinions about others. I realized all the faults I see outside is a part of me also.
“A thousand half-loves must be forsaken to take one whole heart home.”- Rumi. This quote changed the way I used to take the spiritual journey. This journey started for me somewhere in 2013, but initially, it was more of a hobby for me, I was curious to find the truth at best and never thought this could end up being my sole purpose in life. But this quote made me realize that half-hearted attempts can just make me intellectual but to experience the truth, I need to make it my only purpose in life.
" You always draw your energy from whoever is the center of your life"- My master, My Lord, Om Swamiji
This secret told by Swamiji was the blessing showered by Swamiji upon us. He became the anchor of my life and he alone is the one I draw my energy to walk this sacred journey. All glories to him alone 🙏🙏🙏
Discover your own Truth !!
I have sent you nothing but Angels !!!
Not sure who wrote these lines and if they even come under the definition of ‘quotes’ . But these lines work for me whenever
-I am in trouble
-I wish to express gratitude
-to give myself some confidence .
-I want to push myself a little harder
-I have sleepless life .
All in all , my boat in all highs and lows .
No , I have not written them anywhere as reminders . This is purely how mind functions for me . This is purely based on my experience with life so far .
( when trouble/work/job is in progress )
- Do your best , leave on me(Divine)the rest .
(On the days when I am at my lowest)
-When you pray God listens
When you listen God talks
When you believe God works .
( To kick start )
When you turn your worry into worship ,
God turns your battles into blessings .
(On countless sleepless nights . When I assure myself on his behalf , the stage of Total surrender for me )
- Don’t worry! God is never blind to your tears ,never deaf to your prayers and never silent to your pain . He hears and he delivers . —-In Time.
And the last one, I can vouch on this,
( when I wish to express my gratitude . When I can’t thank the Devine enough.)
-The secret is definitely you ( The Divine) , because I know for a fact - I couldn’t do it on my own.
I don't think quotes can change our lives, at the best they are good to hear. Our unconsciousness is such deep that ever we read hundreds of quotes, 5 minutes later we'll be back to the same old ways of being.
We should rely on regular meditation to get positive change in our lives.
