O man! Verily you are ever toiling on towards your Lord--painfully
toiling--but you shall meet Him.... You shall surely travel from stage to
stage.





Islam Quote n°4324 | 
Qur'an 84.6, 19 





A nd we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being
changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this
comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.





Christianity Quote n°4314 | 
2 Corinthians 3.18 





A s rivers flow into the sea and in so doing lose name and form, so even
the wise man, freed from name and form, attains the Supreme Being, the
Self-luminous, the Infinite. He who knows Brahman becomes Brahman.





Hinduism Quote n°4310 | 
Mundaka Upanishad 3.2.8-9 





B rahman is the end of the journey. Brahman is the supreme goal.




Hinduism Quote n°4308 | 
Katha Upanishad 1.3.11 





T he Lord takes His stand upon
hearing, sight, touch, taste, smell,
and upon the mind.
He enjoys what mind and senses enjoy.

Deluded men cannot trace His course.
Only the eye of wisdom sees Him
clothed in the states of existence, going forth,
being in the body, or taking in experience.
Disciplined men can also make an effort
and see His presence in themselves.





Hinduism Quote n°4194 | 
Bhagavad Gita 15.9-11 





A s one not knowing that a golden treasure lies buried beneath his feet may walk over it again and again, yet never find it, so all beings live every moment in the city of Brahman, yet never find him because of the veil of illusion by which he is concealed.




Hinduism Quote n°4193 | 
Chandogya Upanishad 8.3.2 





T he kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed, nor will they say, "Lo, here it is!" or "There!" for behold, the kingdom of God is within you.




Christianity Quote n°4191 | 
Luke 17.20-21 





D o you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you?... For God's temple is holy, and that temple you are.




Christianity Quote n°4185 | 
1 Corinthians 3.16-17 





I talk always to the man who walks along with me;
-men who talk to themselves hope to talk to God someday-
My soliloquies amount to discussions with this old friend.
who taught me the secret of loving human beings
And when the day arrives for the last leaving of all,
and the ship that never returns to port is ready to go,
you´ll find me on board, light, with few belongings,
almost naked like the children of the sea."





Others Beliefs / Litterature Quote n°4006 | 
"Portrait", Translated from spanish by Robert Bly, ed. Espasa Calpe, col. Austral #33 poem XCVII 





K now that whenever something permeates another, it is assumed into the other.
That which permeates, the agent, is disguised by that which is permeated, the object.
In this case, the object is the manifest [universe], and the agent is the Unmanifest, the Hidden.

On Him alone we depend for everything; our dependence on other things is in reality dependence on Him, for they are nothing but His appearances.

The eye perceives nothing but Him; only He is to be known.
We are His; by Him we exist, and by
Him we are governed; and we are, at all times and in all states, in His presence.





Islam / Sufism Quote n°3781 | 
in Austin, 1980.; pp. 92,98,137 





S ay no longer that God is invisible. Do not speak thus, for what is more manifest than God? He has created all only that you may see it through the beings. For that is the miraculous power of God, to show Himself through all beings. For nothing is invisible, not even the incorporeal. The intellect makes itself visible in the act of thinking; God makes Himself visible in the act of creating.




Christianity / Gnostics Quote n°3649 | 
Poimander, 1.11, based on translation by Yates, F., 1964, pp. 31-32 





G od presents himself in the inmost depths of my soul. I understand not only that he is present, but also how he is present in every creature and in everything that has being, in a devil and a good angel, in heaven and hell, in good deeds and in adultery or homicide, in all things, finally, which exist or have some degree of being, whether beautiful or ugly. She further said: I also understand that he is no less present in a devil than a good angel. Therefore, while I am in this truth, I take no less delight in seeing or understanding his presence in a devil or in an act of adultery than I do in a good angel or in a good deed. This mode of divine presence in my soul has become almost habitual. Moreover, this mode of God's presence illuminates my soul with such great truth and bestows on it such divine graces that when my soul is in this mode it cannot commit any offense, and it receives an abundance of divine gifts. Because of this understanding of God's presence my soul is greatly humiliated and ashamed of its sins. It is also granted deep wisdom, great divine consolation, and joy.




Christianity / Catholicism Quote n°3440 | 
Complete Works. Mahwah, New Jersey: Paulist Press, 1993, pp. 212-213 





S omeone asked Abby Anthony, "What must one do in order to please God?" The old man replied, "… whoever you may be, always have God before your eyes…"

Abba Anthony the Great: The sayings of the Desert Fathers : the alphabetical collection. Trans. Benedicta Ward, SLG. Kalamazoo, Michigan: Cistercian Publications Inc., 1984, 1975, p. 2, Anthony the Great 3 





W hat is it to know something of God? Burn inside that presence. Burn up.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3330 | 
The Essential Rumi, p. 62, Trans. Coleman Barks with John Moyne. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1995 





A ll creatures, day and night, make manifestation of God. Some of them know what they are doing and are aware of their manifesting, while others are unaware. However it may be, God's manifestation is confirmed.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3294 | 
Signs of the Unseen: The Discourses of Jalaluddin Rumi, p. 184, Trans. W.M. Thackston, Jr. Putney, Vermont: Threshold Books, 1994 





I (God) am easily attained by the person who always remembers me and is attached to nothing else.




Hinduism Quote n°3237 | 
BG 8:14, p. 126, The Bhagavad Gita. Trans. Eknath Easwaran. Tomales, CA.: Nilgiri Press, 1985. 





M editate and realize this world is filled with the presence of God.




Hinduism Quote n°3208 | 
Shvetashvatara Up. 1:12, p.219 in The Upanishads. Trans. Eknath Easwaran. Tomales, CA.: Nilgiri Press, 1987 





T here are three classes of devotees. The lowest one says, "God is up there," and he points to heaven. The mediocre devotee says that God dwells in the heart as the "Inner Controller." But the highest devotee says: "God alone has become everything. All things that we perceive are so many forms of God."




Hinduism Quote n°3174 | 
Mahendranath Gupta. The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna. Trans. Swami Nikhilananda. New York: Ramakrishna-Vivekananda Center, 1942, 1948, 1958, pp. 292-293 





R amdas from his own experience can boldly assert that there is God. Until you yourself get the experience, it is natural that you should deny Him. But a time will come when you too will have faith in Him




Hinduism Quote n°3163 | 
In the Vision of God, Volume 1, by Swami Ramdas, pg 240 





G od, who is absolute existence, consciousness and bliss, is within you-nay, you and He are not different. Unless you realize Him, there can be no true liberation and lasting peace.




Hinduism Quote n°3158 | 
In the Vision of God, Volume 1, by Swami Ramdas, pp 171-172 





T he personality absolute, manifest in all creation fine, If thou desire to know of His pervading the universe, the reality and sign;Go! And on the surface of wine observe the bubble, see hoe,The wine is within the bubble and the bubble within the wine.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3127 | 
Abu Sa'id's Rubaiyat by Dr Zahurul Hasan Sharib 





G od is everywhere, there's no doubt about that, but you have to have the right eye to see Him. Look at the air. It blows everywhere, but you can't see it. You can only feel it when it touches you…. God too can be seen. Sit quietly for a while and meditate on the Self You'll be able to see Him. In what form would you like to see God? He has taken the form of bread in this piece of bread-don't try to see Him as a stone in bread. In fruit you should see God as fruit, in a tree you should see God as a tree, and in yourself you should see Him as yourself Who says that God cannot be seen? Don't try to see Him as different from the way He has manifested Himself-see Him as He is! Try to see Him as He is.




Hinduism Quote n°3120 | 
Muktananda, Swami. I Have Become Alive. South Falisburg, W. SYDA Foundation, 1985, pp. 147, 172,203. 





W here do you seek me, my son?
Look-I am right inside you!
I am not found in the temple nor the mosque, not in Mecca nor the highest heaven.
I am not found in prayer nor ritual, not in yoga nor renunciation.
If your yearning is pure you will see me in an instant, you will meet me this moment.
Kabir says, "0 seeker, I am right here as the breath within the breath."





Others Beliefs / Litterature Quote n°3104 | 
literal translations by Krishan Bakshi, Vinod Argawal, and Anand Mundra in Jonathan Star, the Inner Treasure, Tarcher Putnam. 





T here is no need to look for God here or there. He is no farther away than the door of your own heart. There He stands waiting till He finds you ready to open the door and let Him enter. No need for you to call Him from afar-He is waiting more impatiently than you for that door to open. He wants you a thousand times more urgently than you want Him. There is only one thing you must do-open the door and enter.

No one has ever longed so much for anything as God longs to bring man to Him. God is so close to us, but we are distant and turned away from Him. God is within, we are without. God is at home with us, but we are strangers to ourselves.





Christianity Quote n°3084 | 
Pfeiffer, Frantz, and Evans, C de B., trans. Meister Eckhart. London: John M. Watkins, 1924, 193 1, Vol. 1: 118, 157, 221-222, 287, 338, 348, 363, 429, and Vol. 2: 41, 114. 





I n the market, in the cloister-only God I saw. In the valley and on the mountain-only God I saw. Him I have seen beside me oft in tribulation; In favour and in fortune-only God I saw. In prayer and in fasting, in praise and contemplation, In the religion of the Prophet-only God I saw. Neither soul nor body, accident nor substance, Qualities nor causes-only God I saw. Opened mine eyes and by the light of His face around me In all the eye discovered-only God I saw. Like a candle I was melting in his fire; Amidst the flames outflashing-only God I saw. Myself with mine own eyes I saw most clearly, But when I looked with God's eyes-only God I saw. I passed away into nothingness, I vanished, And so, I was the All-living-only God I saw.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3072 | 
Nicholson, Reynold, trans. Translations of Eastern Poetry and Prose. New York: Greenwood Press, 1969, p. 101.
