Spiritual Awareness / Awakening Quotes

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J.

O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD.
- Psalm 139:1-4

God knows us from within ourselves, not as objects, not as strangers, not as intimates, but as our own selves.
- Thomas Merton
