Spiritual awakening does not take us further from…

Spiritual awakening does not take us further from the world. It brings us closer.

Spiritual awakening does not separate us. It connects us.

Spiritual awakening is not about my bliss in the midst of your misery.

Spiritual awakening, is awakening from the illusion, that who we are is based on what we earn, acquire or achieve; an awakening into the reality that each of us is an embodiment of the divine.

It is awakening out of the illusion of our separateness, into the reality of our oneness; a reality in which there is no place that I end and you begin.

It is awakening from a life that is in pieces into a life of peace.

–Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati

The physician’s duty is not to stave off death or return patients to their old lives, but to take into our arms a patient and family whose lives have disintegrated and work until they can stand back up and face, and make sense of, their own existence.

―Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air
