Inspiration.

Phuro! Be inspired! Teachings of Babaji, P.79.

The words of the saints contain a vibration and energy that have the power to remove vice and evil from the world. The value of their words is that they inspire. This is why the scriptures say that their words have to be read again and again and to be meditated upon and put into practice. (...) Teachings of Babaji, P.56.

Awake! Arise! Go to the wise and gain knowledge! Realize the Self! Be of firm determination - fully concentrated - achieve your goal! (...) inspiring words are eternal; the physical body will go, it is perishable. Teachings of Babaji, P. 80.

We must go ahead and progress. Don't lag behind. In whatever condition or position you find yourself, always go forward. Go ahead! Go ahead! Advance with courage! Don't think that we will remain always in darkness and obscurity; like a frog from a deep well, come out and walk ahead! Teachings of Babaji, P.80.

You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill-top cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp to put it under a tub; they put it on the lamp-stand where it shines for everyone in the house. In the same way your light must shine in the sight of men, so that, seeing your good works, they may give the praise to your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

PHURO! These inspiring words will bring peace to the world. PHURO in itself is a complete mantra. Teachings of Babaji, P.81.

(...) For the sake of man's salvation, the mantra "PHURO!" has been newly created.(...) Teachings of Babaji, P.84.

The fact is "PHURO!" Everything in this world is "PHURO" - transient. It has no reality. True reality is to proceed on the path of truth, to keep the company of saintly people, and to render service to men. The fact is "PHURO!" - this world is transient. Teachings of Babaji, P.84.

The Lord God grants His graces in two ways:  by inspiration and by enlightenment. (...) Faustina Kowalska, The Diary, 392.

(...) I received this inspiration just as I was on my way to make my examination of conscience, and I was very worried because I did not know how to go about it. Divine light can do more in one moment than I, fatiguing myself for several days. Faustina Kowalska, The Diary, 1250.

(...) My heart has been accustomed to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit, to whom I am faithful. In the midst of the greatest din I have heard the voice of God. (...). Faustina Kowalska, The Diary, 1504.

Nevertheless, in every other good work man acts in partnership with God, using his natural wit and knowledge to the best advantage. God is fully active here also, but in a different capacity, as it were. Here He consents to the act and assists man through secondary means: the light of scripture, reliable counsel, and the dictates of common sense, which include the demands of one's state, age, and circumstances in life. In fact, in all ordinary activities a man must never pursue an inspiration - be it ever so pious or attractive - until he has rationally examined it in the light of these three witnesses. The Book of Privy Counseling, P.179.

The Master said, Only one who burst with eagerness do I instruct; only one who bubbles with excitement, do I enlighten. (...). Confucius, quoted after Novak Philip, The World's Wisdom, P.114.

God has given us the power of spiritual inspiration - realization of the pure bliss of His presence within us. Paramahansa Yogananda, Man's Eternal Quest, P.160.

The ear of the faithful retains the inspiration,
because such an ear is close to the caller,
just as an infant's ear is filled with its mother's words
until it learns to speak.

Rumi, Mathnawi IV, 3030..., quoted in: Helminski, Kabir (2000). The Rumi Collection. P.116.

Whatever the soul sows is from the Soul of the soul.
He is the One who takes the hand,
and He is the One who acrries the burden.
Hope to receive the breath of inspiration from that Source.

Rumi, Mathnawi I, 2140..., quoted in: Helminski, Kabir (2000). The Rumi Collection. P.173.

The inner is the source of inspiration, the outer is moved by memory. The source is untraceable, while all memory begins somewhere. Thus the outer is always determined, while the inner cannot be held in words. () Sri Maharaj Nisargadatta. (2005). I am That. P.75.
