Guru Nanak

(Sikh)

As fragrance abides in the flower,
As the reflection is within the mirror,
So doth thy Lord abide within thee,
Why search Him without?

Lord Buddha

(Buddhist)

The subject on which I meditate is truth.

The practice to which I devote myself is the truth.

The topic of my conversation is truth.

My thoughts are always in truth.

For lo! my self has become the truth.

Jesus Christ

(Christian)

Being asked by the Pharisees when the

kingdom of God was coming, he answered them,

"The kingdom of God is not coming with signs

to be observed; nor will they say, ‘Lo, here it is!’ or

‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is within you."

Vedas

(original Indian holy text)

There is one Supreme Ruler, the inmost Self of all beings,

who makes His one form manifold.

Eternal happiness belongs to the wise,

who perceive Him within themselves - not to others.

Yehuda Ashlag

(Jewish)

There is no single substance existing in the world, whether it be that which we experience through the senses, or that which we perceive through the mind, which is not comprised in the Creator. Everything emanates from Him. Therefore, what we know as contrary, or unrelated in Him, are but one unified Substance.

 

Native American

The first peace, which is most important, is that which comes within the souls of men when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its Powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Tanka, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us. This is the real Peace, and the others are but reflections of this. The second peace is that which is made between two individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But above all you should understand that there can never be peace between nations until there is first known that true peace which, as I have often said, is within the souls of men.

Sri Rama

(Hindu)

Think that you are Parabrahman, you have no attachment,

 you are all-knowing and you are pure. Always feel like

 this and establish your oneness with the Paramatman

and derive bliss within yourself without caring to

know what is outside of you.

Baha'u'llah

(Baha'i)

"The worlds of God are in perfect harmony and correspondence one with another. Each world in this limitless universe is, as it were, a mirror reflecting the history and nature of all the rest. The physical universe is, likewise, in perfect correspondence with the spiritual or divine realm. The world of matter is an outer expression or facsimile of the inner kingdom of spirit. The world of minds corresponds with the world of hearts."

Zoroaster

(Zoroaster)

One need not scale the heights of the heavens

nor travel along the highways of the world

to find Ahura Mazda. With purity of mind

and holiness of heart one can find

Him in one’s own heart.

Zen

(Zen Buddhist)

One moon shows in every pool; in every pool, the one moon.

Sri Sankaracharya

(Hindu)

Curb your senses and your mind and see the

Lord within your heart.

Rumi

(Sufi)

Where is that Moon that never rises or sets? Where is that soul that is neither with nor without us? Don't say it is here or there. All creation is Him but for the eyes that can see.

Sri Ramakrishna

(Hindu)

Do you know what I see? I see Him as all.

Men and other creatures appear to me only as hollow forms,

moving their heads and hands and feet,

 but within is the Lord Himself.

Swami Vivekananda

(Hindu)

It is impossible to find God outside of ourselves.

Our own souls contribute all of the divinity that is

outside of us. We are the greatest temple.

The objectification is only a faint imitation of

what we see within ourselves.
