We are all on a spiritual quest. Whether we are aware of the fact or not. Some are walking at a slow pace, others at a moderate pace, and yet a selected few are running. It doesn’t matter how fast you go, as long as you are making progress. And you are making progress, even when you think you are stuck. Everything is a lesson and every lesson helps you make another step on your spiritual journey. I hope you will enjoy these beautiful inspirational spiritual quotes as much as we did:

Everything is laid out for you. Your path is straight ahead of you. Sometimes it’s invisible but it’s there. You may not know where it’s going, but you have to follow that path. It’s the path to the Creator. It’s the only path there is.

The spiritual path – is simply the journey of living our lives. Everyone is on a spiritual path; most people just don’t know it.
In the empty heart, void of self can be heard the echoing cry, “I am the Truth.” Thus is man one with the eternal. Travelling, travel and traveller have become one.
The spiritual quest is not some added benefit to our life, something you embark on if you have the time and inclination. We are spiritual beings on an earthly journey. Our spirituality makes up our beingness.
Our own life is the instrument with which we experiment with truth.
I think a spiritual journey is not so much a journey of discovery. It’s a journey of recovery. It’s a journey of uncovering your own inner nature. It’s already there.
