Hello and Welcome,

Today I invite you to take time to ponder and reflect upon some quotes by our friend, Mooji. Simply reading these words may not have the desired effect. I would like to challenge you to take each word… in each of the quotes and put those words together… so that at the end of each teaching you can ponder these simple truths… that you already know… but may have forgotten. As with all the great teachers you will be reminded as Mooji answers the questions that are forever a part of the wonder of what life is all about.mooji spiritual teacher

Please Enjoy…

Who is Mooji?

Mooji is a Jamaican born Spiritual Teacher and Author who spent most of his youth growing up in England.  The focus of his teachings is non-duality (Mature state of consciousness / The understanding of non-separation and fundamental oneness / Philosophical, Spiritual and Scientific understanding of non-separation and fundamental intrinsic oneness).

He has been the student and disciple of both Papaji and Maharshi, 2 of India’s great sages. His simple philosophy is this, ‘That If We Connect To Our True Nature Or Self, We Can Live A True And Meaningful Life.


1. You need nothing to be happy, you need something to be sad.

2. Mind is there in front of you, don’t log in. Feelings are just visitors, let them come and go.

3. If I could only give you one piece of advice, don’t identify with anything. Be completely empty. Noone, be nobody and see if you lose anything but delusion.

4. Everything is just now. Your existence is just now. All the rest is just a dream due to conditioning and memory.

5.  Something brought you here. Trust that it will satisfy it’s own intention to take you home.mooji spiritual teacher

6. When you drop all your ideas, fantasies and projections about who you are, and what freedom is, and remain completely empty, this is freedom.

7. Leave your existence to existence, stop caring for yourself so much and let the universe care for you, it is the best mother.

8. The mind is like the wind. You’re trying to stop the wind dressed as a kite. How are you going to do it?

9. Don’t belong to anything. Don’t belong to anyone, just be. Feel you’re being first and foremost, and don’t compare or compete. Just be your being.

10. Who reminds you to breathe and to beat your heart. Something is there taking care.

11. You already are the peace you are looking for. Be still and know that.

12. Surrender is not weakness it is strength, to surrender life, to the supreme, to the cosmic unfolding.

13. Let it be whatever it will be. Give up trying to manipulate. This is freedom.mooji spiritual teacher

14. If you make human company too important you will not find your true self. Relationships not based in truth are never entirely reliable and are rarely enduring. Taking the time to discover yourself, is the best use of time. Prioritise this.

15. Step into the fire of self-discovery. This fire will not burn you. It will only burn what you are not.

16. Feelings by themselves do not create problems. It is rather the tendency to interpret and analyse them. When out of habit you believe those interpretations. It is there that suffering begins.

17. Ignoring the mind is a beautiful sadhana(discipline). That is what many of the sages did. They ignored the mind out of existence. It loses its influence and it’s potency when ignored.

18 Maybe your mind is waiting for you to choose freedom, so it can have a rest.

19. The greatest healing would be to wake up from what we are not.

20. You don’t know how things are going to work out. Don’t make premature conclusions.

So as we come to the end of this post of Mooji Quotes you will have no doubt have been struck by the depth and personal meaning you felt as an individual, and the need to surrender to the oneness that we all are. I certainly hope these are some questions that you will want to relive and to continue to seek as you move forward.mooji quote

I will be doing a review of what is considered his best book soon and I’m sure that will be of great interest as we delve deeper into his profound and teachings to loosen the strings on what has become a world of duality.

I invite you to leave a comment below with regards to your thoughts on non-duality, your thoughts feeling and opinions are what this site aspires to.

Let Non-Duality Reign Supreme!

A Pleasure As Always




  1. I like the quotes by Mooji, especially the one: “Something brought you here. Trust that it will satisfy it’s own intention to take you home.” – I believe in this intrinsic truth. Your article is quite interesting. Although I have heard of the man, I have never seen him, he looks like a down to earth man, but at the same time a teacher. I also like his simple philosophy. Whereabouts is he situated (his home or where he abodes)? Are his teachings and beliefs universal or only specific to one set of culture?

    I cannot wait for your review.

    1. Hi there,

      I must say that is one of my favourite quotes as well. Profound but simplistic. Mooji currently resides in Alentajo Portugal. His teachings are Universal and aligned with no particular culture or religion although his teachers\masters include among many Christian and Hindu influences.

      Gotta get that review sorted. All the very best


  2. Dear Paul,

    Wow, thanks a lot for the amazing and awesome quotes. Great knowledge and wisdom is available in these quotes.

    The first quote itself hit me on my head and its an eye-opener for me.

    As you mentioned I need to implement what I learned from this post and for sure one read is not enough. I am bookmarking it for future reference and just one quote itself can change our lives. This is loads of valuable information.

    Much Success!


    1. Your so welcome Paul.

  3. Hi Paul,I love this post and definitely the quotes by Mooji.His quotes “You need nothing to be happy, you need something to be sad” has started my day HAPPY 🙂. His 20 quotes have got me thinking about what is freedom.? We are always the one that restricts our own freedom.I’m looking forward to reading your review of his books.

    1. Hi Christine and thanks for dropping by. The !st quote is becoming very popular with the readers and its simplicity leaves you pondering the truth that we go looking for something to make us unhappy. So grateful to be able to share these quotes and have them affect you in such a way. Here’s too true freedom and my review of ‘ Before I Am’ is only a day away. I’m excited. Cheers Christine


  4. hello Paul,

    This sayings are really deep and quite inspirational. Mooji is a great teacher and is truly a shining light in this dark world. “Maybe your mind is waiting for you to choose freedom so it can have rest”, what a quote! This can be attributed to a lot of us who worry about every single thing. Sometimes, I believe it’s much better to just let go and things will fall into place.

    Thanks for brightening up my morning,

    kind regards

    1. Hi Louis, Great to hear from you and the quote you mentioned hit me like a ton of bricks as well. ‘Sometimes worry seems to be necessary…it is not’. I like you are a firm believer in letting go and see what happens. A truly liberating attitude to have Thanks Louis


  5. Great Mooji quotes you got here Paul, kudos. This is really awesome, but that is what you always crank out, you create great posts that we can sink our teeth into and really go to work.

    You pointed out several things that I will remember for years to come. I look forward to reading your next informative work. Thank you.

    1. Hey Ayodeji. Thanks for your kind words they really inspire me to bring more and more thought-provoking stuff to my readers. Moojis words of self-enquiry are truly provocative and leave you with a sense of wonder of what this life and who we truly are is all about..Many thanks to Mooji and to you also.

      Cheers Paul

  6. I suppose he is a philosopher. And from what I have observed, he is a philosopher and not just a spiritual teacher.  I  don’t think he is a Christan and his beliefs are not actually What religious group did he come from?. That’s important thing to note is about his beliefs and religion and I wait to hear from you

    1. Hi Kenechi, Moojis background actually starts with a Christian Mystic and then with two great Indan Sages one being Papaji and the other one was Sri Ramana Maharshi. However he is described as an Advaita Zen Master, his teaching is not aligned with any religious or cultural philosophies which make him pretty unique…Paul

  7. Thanks for the introduction to Mooji’s spiritual teachings.  I enjoyed reading the 20 quotes of his you listed.  Being able to empty your mind and stop letting life control our daily actions that ends up causing us stress and worry is a great skill to be able to master.  Doing this is what I have taken away from this post.  Thanks again.  Cheers

    1. Hi Robb,

      To be able to empty the mind, what a wondrous achievement that is, if only for a few moments. It is a constant and ongoing discipline that eludes us most of the time. To be aware of the fact that these thoughts are even happening is an achievement in itself.

      Mooji reminds us with profound but simple ways of doing this and with this comes the realisation that we don’t have to be slaves to our thoughts.

      Peace to you Robb
