List Of 51 Mooji Quotes On Death, Love, And Freedom:

#1 “If you wish to find love, don’t look for the object of love but rather for the source of love. There you will find the beloved.”

#2 “To change the world is not your mission. To change yourself is not your duty. To awaken to your true nature is your opportunity.”

#3 ”A man once said to Sri Nisargadatta, “Maharaj, your words resonate deep within my heart. I feel their power and know them to be true. But if I am to be honest in describing my experience, I would have to admit that throughout my life, I’m continuously experiencing suffering!” And Maharaj replied, “No, this is not true. You are not experiencing suffering, you are suffering your experiencing.”

#4 “Once you begin to recognize the divine gifts in life, you come to see that there are so many. Your life is abundant.”

#5 “What about physical pain? What about suffering? Hand over your existence to existence and keep quiet. All is grace.”

#6 “Don’t remind the world that it is sick and troubled. Remind it that it is beautiful and free.”

#8 “The mind has a dilemma. It is afraid of change, deeper change, yet the mind is attracted to life, which is change. Don’t be mixed up in all that business. You merely observe, casually, passively and keep your attention inside your heart.”

#9 “Attempting to understand consciousness with your mind is like trying to illuminate the sun with a candle.”

#11 “You have the innate power to discern that a presence is arising within you that is not the mind.”

#12 “In reality, there is no such thing as someone being able to “stay permanently” in the Self. No one has ever done it: the Buddha couldn’t do it, neither could Christ do it.”

#13 ”To be free you are going to have to break out of the mold of personal conditioning, out of your cocoon. Each sincere seeker must be willing to undergo the necessary transformation from caterpillar consciousness to the butterfly of freedom!”

#14 “Very often in our culture, you are treated as though you have little spiritual capacity, as though you have no inherent power, and that people ‘in the know’ have to always liquidize your food in order for you to grow.”

#15 “It’s not even that you have to drop vain pursuits. God is not asking you to give up your sweeties, your favorite treats. It’s just that you start to lose interest in them.”

#16 “Can you imagine being in a place inside of yourself where you genuinely don’t need to be loved? It’s a very quiet place in which your love becomes open, broad, beautiful, and strong.”

#17 “Don’t try to create some kind of shape for your life as if you are shearing it with a pair of clippers. Don’t prune down your own life into the shape you think it should be. Don’t be a bonsai, be a mighty oak.”

#18 “While the body is still warm, use this bodily life to rediscover your timeless Being.”

#19 “It does not matter what comes up. What matters is who you are, the one perceiving it.”

#20 “Everything is magical when you see it with your heart.”

#21 ”If you go into a room full of light, but outside is darkness, and you open the curtain, that darkness won’t come in. But if you go into a room which is dark and you open up a little tiny bit of a curtain, it will fill the whole room with light. Such is the power of the light.”

#22 ”From just one candle, you can light a million candles without putting strain on the first candle. From one awakened being, you can set light into a million souls, so powerful is the light.”

#23 “We are never without grace. We can never be abandoned, it is always there. God can never abandon mankind.”

#24 “The sage sees only the Self. The person sees lots of persons. One sees from wholeness, one sees from fragmentation. Both are you.”

#25 “Who can count how many lives we have tasted? Look at the stars. How old are they? And a star is not even sentient. You are sentient. How can you be less in age than a star?”

#26 ”I don’t know why awakening happens in one heart so completely and in another, there is some delay or postponement. I am not deeply concerned about this. But I know that the voice that calls you is true, and where you are being called to is real and true.”

#27 “You say you want to get rid of the noise, but you and the noise go together. You have to be you without ‘you’ and all the noise will stop. The real You is the formless witness within. The person, the noisy one, is only imagined. To recognize this is Freedom.”

#28 “The ways of the mind are ancient  but your Self is timeless.”

#29 “Throw everything away, forget about it all! You are learning too much, remembering too much, trying too hard . . . relax a little bit, give life a chance to flow its own way, unassisted by your mind and effort. Stop directing the river’s flow.”
