Enlightened Quotes: Seek God in Consciousness

“Matter is dead and unconscious, therefore God must not be sought in matter. We must seek him in consciousness, that is, inside our own self.” – Ramakrishnananda

(Swami Ramakrishnananda, God and Divine Incarnations. Madras: Sri Ramakrishna Math, 1986, 37.)


  1. Culture of Awareness, thank you for inspiring me to stand up for my feminine half. Did you know that the word matter comes from the latin “mater” meaning mother? Do you really believe that matter (mother) is dead? -Aaron


    • I didn’t know, Aaron! Very interesting. Some quotes from spiritual teachers encourage us to take our focus off of anything that constitutes physical reality, but I don’t really agree with them. This reality’s just as spiritual as the next!

      Much love 🙂
