Spiritual Quotes. Spiritual Enlightenment. 21 websites

We are much more than what we think we are. Never forget.

The websites provide spiritual quotes, spiritual enquiry and statements on spiritual enlightenment from voices of wisdom, past and present.

If we read a poem, verse or passage mindfully and with interest, we may experience a deep response of appreciation and insight. We  can return back those lines and read again. If the words touch us, and have a staying power to them, then our being has acknowledged a truth to support our life and consciousness. We cannot find truth inside the words, nor outside of them. The discovery of truth frees up the being.

You may discover truth in these spiritual texts.

Here are 21 websites offering reminders of the depth and expanse of our spirituality.

May all beings be spiritually enlightened



  • I like that, we are much more than what we think we are.
    Great list. Good to connect with the thoughts of others, makes one feel not so alone. I see William Blake, I see Hermann Hesse on the list, both provided me with inspiration in my youth, and still do.
    Funny how people who you’ve never even met can seem like friends.
    Makes me think about the thoughts and words we leave behind. Quite a responsibility.
    My Dad was always telling me about the noosphere, because he was greatly inspired by Teilhard de Chardin. I can never quite figure the noosphere, but is it something to do with a dimension of human thought?
    Anyway, great list!
