Quotes to live by for every spiritual seeker

Being a seeker for few years now, I have been led by the grace to many spiritual teachers who have cleared by doubts and guided me on the both. Sometimes the guidance is subtle, sometimes kind and sometimes harsh, but each of it is absolutely loving and healing for the being. As I still continue my journey, taking baby steps, here is putting together some quotes that help me stay on the path and follow through. The gurus are many out there but each answers his own calling and finds his way to the right one. Here, I'm putting together quotes by spiritual teachers that have touched my life either by their presence, videos, books or just pictures.

“When you get out of the driver’s seat, you find that life can drive itself, that actually life has always been driving itself.

Life begins to flow, and you never know where it will take you.”
