Fulfilling Quotes on Enlightenment

Eckhart Tolle Quote

Enlightenment cannot be explained in just one definition. Spiritual enlightenment comes from unique and complex experiences, so it differs from person to person. To take enlightenment to the extreme you can explain it as being able to separate yourself from your personality or identity, thus leaving no trace of the egoistic mind. Enlightenment can also be described as the complete understanding of your purpose and meaning in life. Many argue that everyone is enlightened, but that it is oppressed by awake consciousness.

quote

I believe that man must get rid of illusions that enslave and paralyze him; that he must become aware of the reality inside and outside of him in order to create a world which needs no illusions.

Freedom and independence can be achieved only when the chains of illusion are broken.

– Erich Fromm

quote

On the day you see the light of your own true Self, you’ll rejoice!
But if you only see forms which from the beginning were in you,
and don’t die to them or know them,
how can you stand the light?

– From the gospel of Thomas

quote

It is a puzzling thing. The truth knocks on the door and you say, “Go away, I’m looking for the truth”… and so it goes away.
Puzzling.

– Robert M. Pirsig

quote

Neither this body am I, nor soul,
Nor these fleeting images passing by,
Nor concepts and thoughts, mental images,
Nor yet sentiments and the psyche’s labyrinth.
Who then am I?
A consciousness without origin,
Not born in time, nor begotten here below.
I am that which was, is and ever shall be,
A jewel in the crown of the Divine Self,
A star in the firmament of the luminous One.

– Rumi

quote

For those struggling in midstream,
in great fear of the flood,
of growing old and of dying –
for all those I say, an island exists
where there is no place for impediments,
no place for clinging:
the island of no going beyond.

I call it nirvana,
the complete destruction
of old age and dying.

– Buddha
