Here are 100 grounding quotes to bring us back to ourselves. Centering, soulful and loving – my hope is that this evergrowing list of quotes and poems will help remind us of who we are beneath the surface and how to reconnect with this part of ourselves. 

This is not a recipe and may not be what you are looking for on the blog, but it is my birthday today and I wanted to give myself a gift! HA! 😉

I thought there may be a few of you out there that would enjoy this too. A little space to hold the wise words that seem to come at just the right time. I am going to keep adding to the list and I wholeheartedly encourage you to please add your own quotes, poems, or simple words of grounding or wisdom in the comments below.

If you’ve been here a while, you’ll probably already know how much I turn to cooking as an act of self-love. Not only the making of something nourishing and nutritious for our bodies but the actual act of taking time after a busy day to unwind, reset, be present and mindful and look inward, while creating a meal.

This time, for some of you, is the only time you have during the day to connect with yourself. And it can one of the most healing and restorative gifts! But the amazing and beautiful thing is how our reconnecting with ourselves actually affects those around us, without us even uttering a word.

Those closest to us will feel it.

A gift to your family too. Magic.

And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could. ~ Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum

Perhaps then, someday far in the future you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

  85. I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit. Dawna Markova
  86. Every blade of grass has an angel that bends over it and whispers, “Grow, grow.” The Talmud

  97. Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is a nobler art of leaving things undone…. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of nonessentials. — Lin Yutang
  98. We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things … [but] there are times when we stop. We sit still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory. We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper.— James Carroll
  99. The time came when the risk it took to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~Anais nin
  100. Above all, trust in the slow work of the Spirit.
    We are quite naturally impatient in everything
    to reach the end without delay.
    We should like to skip the intermediate stages.
    We are impatient of being on the way to something
    unknown, something new.
    And yet it is the law of all progress
    that it is made by passing through
    some stages of instability-
    and that it may take a very long time. And so I think it is with you.
    Let your ideas mature gradually-let them grow
    let them shape themselves, without undue haste.
    Don’t try to force them on,
    as though you could be today what time
    (that is to say, grace and circumstances
    acting on your own good will)
    will make of you tomorrow
    Only God could say what this new spirit
    gradually forming within you will be.
    Give her the benefit of believing
    that her hand is leading you,
    and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself
    in suspense and incomplete.~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin:
  101. The days come and go like muffled and veiled figures sent from a distant friendly party, but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
  102. You are today where your thoughts have brought you. You will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. ~  James Allen
  103. Accept whatever comes to you woven in the pattern of your destiny, for what could more aptly fit your needs?~ Marcus Aurelius
  104. Regardless of desire, life hands you who you are.  ~Casey Haymes
  105. Love after Love The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror and each will smile the others welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was yourself. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life. ~Derek Walcott

Next Article

As of the date of this article, Amma has hugged attendees to her programs over 40 million times. Her free events attract thousands upon thousands of people, often taking place in football stadiums. In the early days, when 50 or 60 people were in attendance, Amma was known as “Ammaji” or “Ammachi.”

It was 1990 when I first met Amma. She was seated on a tattered, cushioned chair in the center of a small, basement room in The African-Methodist Episcopal Church in Central Square, Cambridge, MA.

The moment I walked into the room, I was so profoundly struck by Amma’s light and presence that I fell to my knees and bowed to her. I spent the rest of the day sobbing in absolute bliss, happily crouched in a corner. In addition to a few Swamis and helpers, there were less than ten other people in the room.

While indulging my tears, Amma caught my eye and invited me to her chair. I was so nervous, I could barely speak. I walked toward her, awkward and self-conscious, as if it were my first time walking. I bowed and she immediately took my hand, then gently bent me across her lap.

Amma then gently rubbed my body from head to toe while I cried. She massaged my scalp and forehead and patted my spine. Amma even squeezed my ears and tussled my hair. It felt as though I were embraced by the most loving bundle of light.

After 20 minutes of her healing touch, Amma lifted my head with her soft hands and pressed her cheek and lips against my ear. She lovingly whispered Sanskrit mantras to me as I absorbed every morsel of her love.

“Pure love transcends the body. It is between hearts. It has nothing to do with bodies.”

— Amma

“The customer is the most important customer. He does not depend on us. We depend on him. He does not interrupt our work. He is the goal of our work. He's on the wrong side of our business.

He is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do this, ”- Mahatma Gandhi, the ideologist of the national liberation movement in India. nine0003

Self Quotes - ReadRate

No matter what, remember: you have yourself. We collected wise thoughts from the world of literature about how important it is for a person to love and appreciate himself. There will always be time to scold.

Quotes about yourself are not pathetic phrases and sayings of famous people. This is a reminder to everyone: take care of yourself, love and respect yourself - the most normal thing in the world.

In daily routines, and even more so in difficult times for the world, it is easy for a person to forget about himself. It seems that thinking about your desires and needs when someone is much worse is a manifestation of terrible selfishness. It so happened that many in life push their interests to the background.
