The importance of meditation from the self realized mind

“Meditation is the only way you can grow..because when you meditate, you are in silence. You are in thoughtless awareness. Then the growth of awareness takes place.”

-Shri Mataji

 

“When the body and mind are in sync, we are naturally relaxed, alert, open, and aware, and we experience ourselves and the world in a direct, unmediated way, without conceptual filters. It is this direct experience of the fullness, vitality, and splendor of life that is the gift of meditation.”

– Eckhart Tolle

 

“We could say that meditation doesn’t have a reason or doesn’t have a purpose. In this respect it’s unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don’t do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.”

– Alan Watts

 

“The flowering of love is meditation.”

– Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.”

-Ram Dass

 

“The power of meditation gets us everything. If you want to get power over nature, [you can have it through meditation]. It is through the power of meditation all scientific facts are discovered today. They study the subject and forget everything, their own identity and everything, and then the great fact comes like a flash. Some people think that is inspiration. There is no more inspiration than there is expiration; and never was anything got for nothing.”

-Swami Vivekananda

 

“The more the heart is an avid void, the more abundantly light will shine into it.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh

 

“To understand the immeasurable, the mind must be extraordinarily quiet, still.”  

– Jiddu Krishnamurti

“The process of breathing if fully understood and experienced in its profound significance, could teach us more than all the philosophies of the world.”

– Lama Govinda

 

“The purpose of meditation is to awaken in us the sky-like nature of mind, and to introduce us to that which we really are, our unchanging pure awareness, which underlies the whole of life and death.”

– Sogyal Rinpoche

 

“If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.”

-Dalai Lama

 

“Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better, it’s about befriending who we are.”  

Ani Pema Chedron

 

“To understand the immeasurable, the mind must be extraordinarily quiet, still.”

– Jiddu Krishnamurti

“Your own Self-Realization is the greatest service you can render the world.”

– Ramana Maharsh

 

“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

-Carl Jung

 

“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”

– Buddha
