Spiritual Quotes about Rest
Spiritual Relaxation Techniques

Among my favourite spiritual quotes about rest is this simple powerful lesson from A Course In Miracles:
I rest in God.

To rest in God is to let go for a moment of believing that change can only come from DOING something.
We enter into God's rest.
We spend time in that place where everything is ALREADY DONE.
We relax.

I rest in God.

Here is more of the lesson from A Course In Miracles on resting in God:

“‘I rest in God.’

This thought will bring to you the rest and quiet, peace and stillness, and the safety and the happiness you seek.

‘I rest in God.’
This thought has power to wake the sleeping truth in you, whose vision sees beyond appearances to that same truth in everyone and everything there is....

‘I rest in God.’
Completely undismayed, this thought will carry you through storms and strife,
past misery and pain,
past loss and death,
and onward to the certainty of God.
There is no suffering it cannot heal.
There is no problem that it cannot solve.
And no appearance but will turn to truth before the eyes of you who rest in God.

This is the day of peace.
You rest in God, and while the world is torn by winds of hate your rest remains completely undisturbed.
Yours is the rest of truth.
Appearances cannot intrude on you.”

(W-109, A Course In Miracles quotes)

Wow! Saying it allows me to breathe more deeply.

I am setting an intention to remember this quote next time I feel upset about something!

I rest in God.

Even when my circumstances tell me I have every reason to be upset...

I rest in God.

Even when my feelings are anything but calm...

I rest in God.

Even if I am using the quote as an excuse to tell myself I should feel more restful!....

I rest in God.

I plant a seed of restfulness, and choose to believe that it will bear fruit :-)

I rest in God.
