Words of Wisdom: 60+ Powerful Quotes on Ascension

Spiritual Ascension is the ultimate goal of every spiritual person on this planet – or of all the people who have come to the realization that we are immortal and powerful beings living a temporary human experience. 

Thus, I have put together these 60 powerful spiritual ascension quotes to inspire you and guide you in this journey, as you can read them anytime you feel like you’ve reached a blockage in your ascension process.

Quotes are powerful tools that we can use to put ourselves in the right mindset when faced with difficulty. 

I dare to say that they have almost the same power as positive affirmations; all you have to do is to spend a couple of minutes in the morning reading inspirational quotes for your entire day to change. 

You can also hang them on your bathroom mirror or in your bedroom so that their positive energy is always around you, improving the general vibration of your house and life.

Ascension quotes are particularly useful if you’re ambitious about ascending spiritually and aligning with your Higher Self. 

They can also come in handy if, for example, you are a spiritual worker and you run a healing facility. 

You can hang them around the facility and expose your customers to them to motivate them on their spiritual journey as much as possible!

Spiritual Ascension has been an important topic in all of the world’s religions or spiritual paths. 

In Christianity, it is considered that Jesus has ascended, and there is even an important celebration called “Ascension Day,” in which Jesus’ Ascension to Heaven is celebrated. 

Buddhism also talks about the ascension of Buddha, and in other spiritual systems, such as Reiki, spiritual ascension is considered to be one of the main goals. 

Spiritual ascension can be defined as an evolution that every soul has to go through to ascend from the material plane into higher planes and achieve the status of becoming God-like energy.

If you have read this article up until this point, I am sure you are passionate about your Spiritual Journey and Ascension. 

Thus, I invite you to read through the following spiritual ascension quotes and choose the ones that inspire you the most!

3. “Aging is a staircase – the upward ascension of the human spirit, bringing us into wisdom, wholeness, and authenticity. As you may know, the entire world operates on universal law: entropy, the second law of thermodynamics. Entropy means that everything in the world, everything, is in a state of decline and decay, the arch. There's only one exception to this universal law: the human spirit, which can continue to evolve upwards.” – Jane Fonda

4. “Enlightenment means waking up to what you truly are and then being that.”- Adyashanti

6. “Every day, you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.” – Winston Churchill

12. “If a man does not exercise his arm, he develops no biceps muscle; and if he does not exercise his soul, he acquires no muscle in his soul, no strength of character, no vigor of moral fiber, nor the beauty of Spiritual growth.” – Henry Drummond

13.Ascension seemed, at such times, a natural law. If one added to it a law of completion – that everything must finally be made comprehensible – then some general rescue of the sort I imagined my aunt to have undertaken would be inevitable. For why do our thoughts turn to some gesture of a hand, the fall of a sleeve, some corner of a room on a particular anonymous afternoon, even when we are asleep, and even when we are so old that our thoughts have abandoned other business? What are all these fragments for, if not to be knit up finally?” – Marilynne Robinson

17. “Some people awaken spiritually without ever coming into contact with any meditation technique or any spiritual teaching. They may awaken simply because they can’t stand the suffering anymore.”– Eckhart Tolle

18. “Each one of us has our own evolution of life, and each one of us goes through different tests which are unique and challenging. But certain things are common. And we do learn things from each other’s experiences. On a spiritual journey, we all have the same destination.”– A. R. Rahman

19. “When you are spiritually connected, you are not looking for occasions to be offended, and you are not judging and labeling others. You are in a state of grace in which you know you are connected to God and thus free from the effects of anyone or anything external to yourself.” – Wayne Dyer

20. “Study yourself. Become your own mentor and best friend. When you are suffering, stay at the bottom until you discover who you are. Let the storms come and pass. How you walk through the fire says a lot about you. Nobody likes a victimhood mentality and what happened to you is not important. It is how you use your chaos that matters. The dawn will come.” – Mohadesa Najumi

21. “Spiritual development is not an accomplishment but a way of life. It is an orientation that brings its own rewards, and what is important is the direction of one’s motives.” – David R. Hawkins

22. “The real spiritual progress of the aspirant is measured by the extent to which he achieves inner tranquility.” – Swami Sivananda

23. “The spiritual quest is not some added benefit to our life, something you embark on if you have the time and inclination. We are spiritual beings on an earthly journey. Our spirituality makes up our beingness.” – John Bradshaw

26. “At His Ascension, our Lord entered Heaven, and He keeps the door open for humanity to enter.” – Oswald Chambers

27. “The ascension reminds us that Christianity is not only a historical faith but a faith of the present and future. Jesus is, right now, in glorified humanity on the throne of the universe, wielding as the God-man “all authority in heaven and on earth” (Matthew 28:18). He is not just our suffering servant who came and died and rose triumphant, but our actively ruling, actively conquering king.” – David Mathis

32. “Jesus has shown that there is a world full of more compassion, generosity, and grace than the world we live in.” – Unknown

33. “Christ is already in that place of peace, which is all in all. He is on the right hand of God. He is hidden in the brightness of the radiance which issues from the everlasting throne. He is in the very abyss of peace, where there is no voice of tumult or distress, but a deep stillness–stillness, that greatest and most awful of all goods which we can fancy; that most perfect of joys, the utter profound, ineffable tranquillity of the Divine Essence. He has entered into His rest. That is our home; here we are on a pilgrimage, and Christ calls us to His many mansions which He has prepared.” – John Henry Newman

34. “Jesus' epic work through his sinless life, atoning death, resurrection, ascension, and the sending of the Spirit, was so that God could have an ethnically diverse family of Jews and Gentiles.” – Derwin L. Gray

35. “There has been no sweeter reunion in the history of the world than Jesus’s return to his Father! Perhaps the closest analogy is a courageous, wounded soldier returning to his loved ones after a hard-fought victory. Jesus fully accomplished his mission and glorified the Father on earth, and at Jesus’s ascension, the Father glorified the Son in heaven (John 17:4–5). Take heart that Jesus’s homecoming to his Father prepares the way for our homecoming to be with Jesus forever (John 14:2–4).” – Brian Tabb

36. “The task of the Church after Jesus' resurrection and ascension was to proclaim the forgiveness of sins to all nations.” – Charles Stanley

37. “Presumably, what happened to Jesus was what happens to all of us when we die. We decompose. Accounts of Jesus's resurrection and ascension are about as well-documented as Jack and the Beanstalk.” – Richard Dawkins

38. “When you went to bed last night, Jesus was at work subduing his enemies. While you slept, he was continuing to rule over the world. He was still at it when you woke up this morning and even now as you read this. That is the outrageous claim of the ascension.” – Tim Chester & Jonny Woodrow

40. “May your heart be an altar, from which the bright flame of unending thanksgiving ascends to heaven.” – Mary Euphrasia Pelletier

41. “Worship demands the far distances of God; it protests against the little, the near, the material. It must love, but it must look up. It cannot live without the note of spirituality and universality, if not a mystery. The ascension, the passing of Christ within the veil, answers this need. So does a full-robed Christianity add to the definiteness of knowledge the outreach of imagination and home.” – Maltbie Davenport Babcock

42. “Through the Holy Spirit comes our restoration to paradise, our ascension into the kingdom of heaven, our return to the adoption of sons, our liberty to call God our Father, our being made partakers of the grace of Christ, our being called children of light, our sharing in eternal glory, and, in a word, our being brought into a state of all “fulness of blessing,” both in this world and in the world to come, of all the good gifts that are in store for us, by promise hereof, through faith, beholding the reflection of their grace as though they were already present, we await the full enjoyment.” – Saint Basil
