Quotes about finding inner peace

peace-is-not-absence-power-love

If I really want inner peace in my life, then I must not busy myself with what other people do and say.

– Sri Chinmoy 1

The greatest misfortune that can come to a human being is to lose his inner peace. No outer force can rob him of it. It is his own thoughts, his own actions, that rob him of it.

– Sri Chinmoy 2

To come back to the secret of inner peace, our questioning and doubting mind is always wanting in peace. Our loving and dedicated heart is always flooded with inner peace. If our mind has all the questions, then our heart has all the answers.

– Sri Chinmoy 3

How can I have peace?
Not by talking about peace,
But by walking
Along the road of peace.

– Sri Chinmoy 4

We own peace only after we have totally stopped finding fault with others. We have to feel the whole world as our very own.

– Sri Chinmoy 2

My inner peace
Does not select anybody,
Does not reject anybody.
My inner peace
Always self-givingly projects itself.

– Sri Chinmoy 6

For peace of mind, prayer is essential. To pray to God for peace with full concentration and singleness of devotion even for five minutes is more important than to spend long hours in carefree and easy-going meditation.

– Sri Chinmoy 2

O my mind,
Do you really want peace?
Then shun competition-comparison,
World-criticism and self-criticism.

– Sri Chinmoy 8

We must resolve here and now, amidst all our daily activities, to throw ourselves, heart and soul, into the Sea of Peace.

– Sri Chinmoy 2

Unless we break down
Our barriers of suspicion and mistrust,
A mind of peace will always remain
A far cry for us.

– Sri Chinmoy 10

We must not allow our past to torment and destroy the peace of our heart. Our present good and divine actions can easily counteract our bad and undivine actions of the past.

– Sri Chinmoy 2

The inner peace
Must always be
Earned and achieved.

– Sri Chinmoy 12

Have little,
Need less:
This is the way
To inner peace.

– Sri Chinmoy 13

Quotes about wisdom

“Wisdom. Wisdom is our liberal self-giving and not our selfish self-seeking. Wisdom is the beauty of our inner flame. Our inner flame is our upward aspiration-flight. Our aspiration-flight is our immortal Reality’s height. The man of wisdom serves God in man. The man of wisdom loves man in God. By serving God in man, the man of wisdom gets boundless Peace, Light and Bliss. By loving man in God, the man of wisdom expands his vision. He feels himself an extension of the ever-increasing vision, inner and outer. Wisdom is at once experience and realisation. Experience tells the seeker what he can eventually become: a perfect instrument of God.”

– Sri Chinmoy 1

“Wisdom-light is life-loving. Wisdom-light is self-giving. Wisdom-light is God-becoming.”

– Sri Chinmoy 2

“Real wisdom comes from the heart. And what is that wisdom? To love and serve these poor people who are suffering. The knowledge that comes from the mind always has a superior feeling: “I am so clever; I am so great.” But the heart’s wisdom acts like a mother. When the mother deals with the child, she never thinks of herself as superior. She comes down to the level of the child so that she can deal with the child and the child can deal with her. Suppose someone has read 10,000 books and you have read only one book. Who cares for 10,000 books? The only book we care for is the book that says to love and be loved — and that book is written on the tablet of the heart.”

– Sri Chinmoy 3

“What is Wisdom-Light? Wisdom-Light is something that eternally glows inside our heart and around our life eternal. Wisdom-Light tells us that there are only two mighty powers on earth. These powers are temptation-power and liberation-power. When we surrender to temptation-power, we come to realise that our body is unawakened, our vital is undisciplined, our mind is unillumined and our heart is unfulfilled. When we aspire for liberation-power, we come to realise that our soul is a fulfilled and, at the same time, a constantly fulfilling reality; that our soul is an illumined and, at the same time, an ever-illumining reality.”

– Sri Chinmoy 4

“Wisdom is something that comes to the fore from within, from the Light of the soul. When we discover wisdom, we feel that we are in conscious oneness with the Almighty Father.”

– Sri Chinmoy 5

“There are many spiritual Masters who did not care for study. But all the scholars of the Western world should go and touch the feet of these illiterate men of infinite Wisdom. The higher, the deeper we go, the more convincing, the more illumining, the more worthwhile the wisdom we get.”

– Sri Chinmoy 6

Wisdom can reach
Heaven’s Feet and earth’s heart
All at once.

– Sri Chinmoy 7

“A worldwide shortage of wisdom is responsible for the absence of universal peace, universal oneness and universal fulness.”

– Sri Chinmoy 8

Quotes about the mind

Keep your thoughts silent.
Keep your words silent.
Keep everything that you have
And you are silent
To make me and my heart
Extremely happy.”

– Sri Chinmoy 1

“The mind is full of turmoil, tension and obscurity on the surface, but when we go deep inside the mind we find the illumined mind, the intuitive mind, the higher mind and so on. These minds are constantly expanding, enlarging and trying to help the gross physical body to see the Truth, live the Truth and become the Truth.”

Sri Chinmoy, 2

“According to our understanding, the person who has a brilliant mind, the mental giant, is a superior being. But we have to know and accept the limitations of the mind. Unless we become aware of its deficiencies, we will not try to correct them.”

“The earthbound mind is full of thoughts and restlessness on the surface, but in the depths of the mind there are no thoughts, it is all calm and quiet. So it is there that you have to go. When you are in that mind, the vacant, tranquil, calm mind, you can accomplish very many things at one time, because that mind is not the human mind; it is the divine mind.”

– Sri Chinmoy 5

Is the philosophy
Of oneness.”

Quotes about God

“God is with form; He is without form. He is with attributes; He is without attributes. If an individual wants to see God as an infinite expanse of Light and Delight, God will come to that person as an infinite expanse of Light and Delight. But if he wants to see God as a most brilliant, most luminous being, then God will come to him like that.”

Sri Chinmoy, 1

“God is infinite Consciousness, infinite Bliss, yet he can also assume a finite form. He is infinite, He is finite; and at the same time He transcends both the infinite and the finite. He is life, He is death; yet again He is beyond both life and death.”

Sri Chinmoy, 2

“God wants to express Himself in each individual in a unique way. When we become consciously and fully one with God, we not only fulfil Him but we also fulfil ourselves.”

Sri Chinmoy, 3
