Barriers of belief and difference are in the process of falling away...

Quotes about Soul
Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach

Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Religion is for those afraid of going to hell, Spirituality is for those who know where Heaven is."
Robert Augustus Masters
"Life after spirituality is a constant dying. Emerging from our own ashes becomes no big deal, but just the way things are...."
"Spirituality exists wherever we struggle with the issue of how our lives fit into the greater cosmic scheme of things. This is true even when our questions never give way to specific answers or give rise to specific practices such as prayer or meditation. We encounter spiritual issues every time we wonder where the universe comes from, why we are here, or what happens when we die. We also become spiritual when we become moved by values such as beauty, love, or creativity that seem to reveal a meaning or power beyond our visible world. An idea or practice is "spiritual" when it reveals our personal desire to establish a felt-relationship with the deepest meanings or powers governing life."
Robert Louis Stevenson
“You can kill the body but not the spirit.”
Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
"It's one thing to have the attitude of enlightenment and another thing to act in an enlightened way, which is conduct or activity..."

It is not about awakening the ego.”
Sant Kirpal Singh
"Stripped of all its outer encrustations, spirituality emerges as a science, as scientific as any other, as verifiable in its results. Let any seeker take it up and let him create in the laboratory of the soul the conditions that are prerequisite; as sure as the day follows the night shall he rise into the Kingdom of God."
