My addiction to reading resulted in me stumbling upon various spiritual books which I dearly loved.
The books enlightened me on how to live a wonderful and peaceful life, and from these books, I also learned how to connect with The Creator, find my purpose, and many other things that changed how I deal with life.
I always note down captivating and inspiring quotes while reading these spiritual books. Here are 11 most powerful quotes from the books that I would love to share with you.
- There is an old saying that man must only use his words for three purposes, to bless, heal, and prosper. What man says of others will be said of him, and what he wishes for another, he is wishing for him – Florence Shinn, The Game of Life and How to Play It.
- Any action you take in a state of negativity creates more outer resistance hence making the universe to not be on your side. Life will not be helpful. If the shutters are closed, the sunlight cannot come in – Ekhart Tolle, A New Earth.
- Agree that the adverse situation is good, don’t be disturbed by it, and it will fall away on its own. ‘None of these things move me,’ is a wonderful affirmation – Florence Shinn, The Game of Life and How to Play It.
- There is only one thing in this Universe that can surround you with limitation, and that is accepting the outer appearance instead of the Might, Active Presence of God in you – Guy Ballard, The I Am Discourses.
- Thy thinking created all that is. My thinking is Thy Thinking. For this reason, My thinking has created all that is – Walter Russel, The Divine Iliad.
- Claim that God works in you, and that when he works he always succeeds: that he knows the best way and is inspiring you to take it: that He meets no resistance for He works with Joy: and that you and your life are part of that – Emmet Fox, Find and Use Your Inner Power.
- The two keys to success are originality and hard work. God will give you the first, through prayer, and the second is up to you – Emmet Fox, Find and Use Your Inner Power.
- Find out what is your authenticity. Who are you? If you don’t know who you are, you will always be in some accident – always. Your life will be a long series of accidents, and whatever happens it will never be satisfying – Osho, Intelligence.
- The simplest answer is that every single thing that happens to you every second of the day has but one sole purpose: to bring you to the point of utter bliss, and to be completely filled with the Light of the Creator –Rabbi Yosef Karo, The Kaballah.
- And the degree that Man realizes the existence of the indwelling Spirit immanent within his being, so will he rise in the spiritual scale of life. This is what spiritual development means – the recognition, realization, and manifestation of the Spirit within us – Three Initiates, Kyabilion
- If the body or mind were having an experience that you considered a problem, but you realized that you were not the body or mind, would you suffer from those problems? – Nirmala, Living From The Heart

Top 11 Enlightening Quotes From the Most Mind-Opening book:Sapiens – The History of Mankind.
I discovered Yuval Harari’s book: Sapiens: A Brief History of Mankind, in one of my favorite Youtube channels: Alux.com. Alux’s wonderful description of the book in, 15 Books You Should Read This Summer, made me purchase it. I read the book, and I don’t regret buying it.
Sapiens is the best book I have read in 2018. The book narrates how man evolved, and makes you understand where our belief systems came from. It also provides mind-opening information about religion, political structures, and the importance of knowledge. From the book, I also learned the secrets of the most powerful nations and the main factors that enabled them to conquer the world.
The most powerful lesson I learned from the book is ‘KNOWLEDGE IS POWER,’ because knowledge was what enabled the Europeans to colonize the whole world.
I gathered the following insightful quotes from the book.
- “Buddha spent six years meditating on the essence, causes, and cures for human anguish. In the end, he came to the realization that suffering is not caused by ill fortune, by social injustice, or by divine whims. Rather, suffering is caused by the behavior patterns of one’s minds.” – Yuval Noah Harari.
- “As Nietzsche put it, if you have a WHY to live, you can bear almost any ‘HOW.’ A meaningful life can be extremely satisfying even in the midst of hardship whereas a meaningless life is a terrible ordeal no matter how comfortable it is.” – Yuval Noah Harari.
- “In the Middle Ages, the rich spent their money carelessly on extravagant luxuries, whereas peasants lived frugally minding every penny. Today, the tables have turned. The rich take great care managing their assets and investments while the less well go into debt buying cars and televisions they don’t really need.” – Yuval Noah Harari.
- “If you experience sadness without craving the sadness to go away, you continue to feel sadness but you don’t suffer from it. There can actually be richness in the sadness. If you experience joy without craving that the joy lingers and intensifies, you continue to feel joy without losing your peace of mind” – Yuval Noah Harari.
- “Both scientist and conqueror began by admitting ignorance – they both said, I don’t know what’s out there. They both felt to go out and make new discoveries. And they both hoped the new knowledge thus acquired would make them masters of the world.” – Yuval Noah Harari.
- “The supreme commandment of the rich is ‘Invest! The supreme commandment of the rest of us is Buy! – Yuval Noah Harari.
- “In the previous eras, the standard of beauty was set by the handful of people who lived next door to you. Today the media and the fashion industry expose us to a totally unrealistic standard of beauty. They search out the most gorgeous people on the planet and then parade them constantly before our eyes. No wonder we are far less happy with the way we look.’ – Yuval Noah Harari.
- “The findings demonstrate that happiness is not the surplus of pleasant over unpleasant moments. Rather happiness consists in seeing one’s life in its entirety as meaningful and worthwhile.” – Yuval Noah Harari.
- “If God knew in advance that a particular person would use her free will to choose evil, and that as a result she would be punished for this by eternal tortures in hell. Why did God create her?” – Yuval Noah Harari.
- Monotheism explains order but is mystified by evil. Dualism explains evil but is puzzled by order. There is one logical way of solving the riddle: to argue that there is a single Omnipotent God who created the entire universe – and he’s evil. But nobody in history has had the stomach for such a belief.” – Yuval Noah Harari.
- “The most cherished desires of the present-day are shaped by romantic, nationalist, capitalist and humanist myths that have been around for centuries. Friends giving advice often tell each other, ‘Follow your heart.’ But the heart is a double agent that usually takes its instructions from dominant myths of the day, and the very recommendation to ‘follow your heart’ was implanted in our minds by a combination of nineteenth-century Romantic myths and twentieth-century consumerist myths.” – Yuval Noah Harari.
