Top 10 Quotes About Supreme Deity

 Terence McKenna Quote about Deity "This is the basis of magic."

Every single divine being ever mentioned by mankind can be considered a deity. What they all have in common are the unreal virtues that they encompass. Depending on the religion worshiping a deity, they can have different strengths and weaknesses, while in most monotheistic religions, the deity has no flaws. When a few deities from various religions are compared, a number of differences definitely outdo that of similarities, and that offers insight into the limitations we (or the gods themselves) have set for the divine individuals.

Top 10 Enlightening Quotes about Relating to God Directly

Louisa May Alcott Quote

How does one come to feel similar to the all-powerful being that created the world? There are many kind virtues that are required for this spiritual journey, but either of them can bring one that closer to god. By simply relating to Jesus himself, for example, one may feel like a bigger part of God, or like God is a bigger part of them. By being gracious and forgiving, one can feel the kindness within, that which god bestowed us all with. Simply put, by being what your God demands you to be, you are directly relating to him.

quote

O Great Spirit,
whose voice I hear in the winds
and whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me.
I am small and weak.
I need your strength and wisdom.

Let me walk in beauty
and let my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have made
and my ears grow sharp to hear your voice.

Make me wise so that I may understand the things
you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden
in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength not to be greater than my brother or sister
but to fight my greatest enemy, myself.
Make me always ready
to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes
So when life fades as the fading sunset
my spirit may come to you without shame.

– Chief Yellow Lark

quote

This morning, as I kindle the fire on my hearth,
I pray that the flame of God’s love may burn in
my heart and in the hearts of all I meet today.

I pray that no envy or malice,
no hatred or fear, may smother the flame.

I pray that indifference and apathy, contempt and pride,
may not pour like cold water on the fire.

Instead, may the spark of God’s love
light the love in my heart,
that it may burn brightly through the day.

And may I warm those who are lonely,
whose hearts are cold and lifeless,
so that all may know the comfort of God’s love.

– From the Gaelic tradition

quote

Lord, where shall I find you?
Your place is lofty and secret.
And where shall I not find you?
The whole earth is full of your glory!
You are found in our innermost heart,
yet you fixed earth’s boundaries.
You are a strong tower for those who are near
and the trust of those who go far.
I have sought to come near you;
I have called to you with all my heart;
and when I went out towards you,
I found you coming towards me.

– Judah Halevi

Spiritual quote on silence by Thomas Merton

quote

The human body is finite;
the spirit is boundless.
Before you begin to pray,
cast aside what limits you
and enter into the world of the Infinite.
Turn to God alone
and have no thought of self at all.
Nothing but God will exist for you
when self has ceased to be.

– Dov Baer of Mezhirech

quote

Adorable presence,
Thou who art within and without,
above and below and all around,
Thou who art interpenetrating every cell of my being,
Thou who art the eye of my eyes,
the ear of my ears,
the heart of my heart,
the mind of my mind,
the breath of my breath,
the life of my life,
the soul of my soul,
Bless us, dear God, to be aware of thy presence
now and here.

May we all be aware of thy presence
in the East and the West,
in the North and the South.
May peace and good will abide among individuals,
communities, and nations.

– Swami Omkar

quote

I weave a silence onto my lips.
I weave a silence into my mind.
I weave a silence within my heart.
I close my ears to distractions.
I close my eyes to attractions.
I close my heart to temptations.

Calm me, O Lord, as you stilled the storm.
Still me, O Lord, keep me from harm.
Let all tumult within me cease.
Enfold me, Lord, in your peace.

– From the Gaelic tradition

quote

Prayer is the wing wherewith the soul flies to heaven, and meditation the eye wherewith we see God.

– Ambrose
