My Favorite Quotes about Knowing Yourself (2)

3313582639_3805ac4ac0_zMisrepresented mankind-

“What we commonly call man–the eating, drinking, planting, counting man, does not–as we know him-represent himself, but misrepresents himself. Him we do not respect. But the soul, whose organ he is, would he let it appear through his action would make our knees bend. When it breathes through his in-intellect, it is genius. When it breathes through his will, it is virtue. When it flows through his affection, it is love.” Walt Whitman

Our potential-

“A veritable gold mine of possibilities is hidden within each of us–aptitudes,attitudes, characteristics, and traits that once may have been conscious, but for some reason slipped away or were pushed away into our unconscious. In addition, there is great potential within each of us that has never had the opportunity to see the light of day.” William A. Miller

Self-acceptance-

“We need to accept that in the end it is not our parents or God who have abandoned us; we have abandoned ourselves.”
Philip Oliver-Diaz and Patricia 0′German

Self-discovery-

“Intimacy that’s too good to be real ought to make you stop and take heed, especially when it happens fast. No matter how much you want to believe it can happen quickly, real intimacy takes time. Sharing yourself, as opposed to losing yourself, is a delicate procedure that evolves step by step.” Susanna Hoffman

Wisdom-
“We don’t receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves after a
journey that no one can take for us or spare us.” Marcel Proust

Your inner Essence-
Learn to get in touch with the innermost Essence of your Being. This true Essence is beyond the ego. It is fearless, it is free, it is immune to criticism, it does not fear any challenge. It is beneath no one, superior to no one, and full of magic, mystery, and enchantment.

~Deepak Chopra

Just be quiet-
“Let the world call you lazy for not running about like a frightened ghost. Just be quiet inside yourself. Don’t bother about knowing how things should be and simply begin observing without prejudice, projections or desires. Notice how life flows of its own accord. Nothing here is a chaos, but a harmony. You are already inside this flow.”

~ Mooji
