Spiritual awakening is often treated as a destination or a reward given to those who religiously meditate and constantly work to relinquish toxic thoughts and emotions. But the truth is there’s no finish line or gold at the end of this journey because the journey never ends. Living fluidly means you understand life is a journey, that the peaks and valleys are simply apart of the adventure. Spiritual awakening happens when we move with the ebb and flow of life.
When our time as a caterpillar has expired we know it time to spread out wings. We have compiled a list of spiritual awakening quotes that celebrate the journey.
