Captivating Quotes on Eternity

Kirk Cameron Quote

All and sundry believes in life after death or the afterlife. Most believers have faith in God. They truly believe that God is eternal. History says that God exists in all activities from creation to death and beyond life. Most human beings have a firm belief on the fact that they are on a cosmic journey, no matter how long or short it is. They are certain of dying and reckon on the fact that they will live a happier life.

quote

Place your mind before the mirror of eternity,
place your soul in the brightness of His glory,
place your heart in the image of the divine essence
and transform yourself by contemplation
utterly into the image of His divinity,
that you too may feel what His friends feel as they taste
the hidden sweetness that God himself has set aside
from the beginning for those who love Him.

Casting aside all things in this false and troubled world
that ensnare those who love them blindly,
give all your love to Him who gave Himself in all
for you to love:
Whose beauty the sun and moon admire, and whose gifts
are abundant and precious and grand without end.

– Saint Clare of Assisi

quote

Step out of the circle of time
And into the circle of love.

-Rumi

quote

How wide are the horizons of the spinning earth!
The moonlight leads the tides and the sun’s light will not be confined within the net of heaven.

But in the end all things return to the One.

The deaf and the dumb, the crippled and deformed are all restored to One’s perfection.

– Hsu Yun

quote

A mind that has come to the stillness of wisdom shall know being, shall know what it is to love. Love is neither personal nor impersonal. Love is love, not to be defined or described by the mind as exclusive or inclusive. Love is its own eternity; it is the real, the supreme, the immeasurable.

– Aldous Huxley

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

Between time and eterity

The soul is created in a place between Time and Eternity:
with its highest powers it touches Eternity, with its lower Time.

– Meister Eckhart

quote

The ignorant think of me, who am the unmanifested spirit, as if I were really in human form. They do not understand that my supreme nature is changeless and most excellent. I am not invisible to all, for I am enveloped by the illusion of phenomenon. This deluded world does not know me as the unborn and the imperishable.

– From the Bhagavad Gita

quote

We look at it and do not see it;
Its name is The Invisible.
We listen to it and do not hear it;
Its name is The Inaudible.
We touch it and do not find it;
Its name is The Subtle.
These three cannot be further inquired into,
And hence merge into one.
Going up high it is not bright,
And coming down low, it is not dark.
Infinite and boundless, it cannot be given any name; It reverts to nothingness. This is called shape without shape, Form without object. It is The Vague and Elusive. Meet it and you will not see its head. Follow it and you will not see its back. Hold on to The Way of the old in order to master the things of the present. From this one may know the primeval beginning. This is called the bond of The Eternal.

– Lao Tzu
