Meditation Quotes and Tips

Why Meditate?

"In a world filled with noise, we need to quiet ourselves to hear God's voice." -- Paul Borthwick

"Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom." -- Buddha

"Meditation may require a lifetime to master, but it will have been a lifetime well spent. If you want to judge your progress, ask yourself these questions: Am I more loving? Is my judgment sounder? Do I have more energy? Can my mind remain calm under provocation? Am I free from the conditioning of anger, fear, and greed?" -- Eknath Easwaran

"Meditation helps me feel the shape, the texture of my inner life. Here, in the quiet, I can begin to taste what Buddhists would call my true nature, what Jews call the still, small voice, what Christians call the holy spirit." -- Wayne Muller

 

"Imagine a hot tub for the mind. That is what meditation is; it can bathe your mind in relaxing thoughts." -- Eknath Easwaran

Meditation is considered an essential practice for those who seek self-knowledge and self-mastery. Why? Basically, meditation brings us awareness of how our minds work. Over time, we become watchers, able to detach from the thoughts that play out in our minds and the emotions that arise in our bodies.

As we become a watcher of our lives, we can begin to break through the masks that have built up as our identity. It helps us see through our defences and connect with unacknowledged and unloved aspects of ourselves. It opens us to higher mind and the voice of intuition.

With this detachment, we gain the freedom to choose whether or not to act on our thoughts and emotions. We learn to distinguish between objective reality and our mental and emotional dramas. Through meditation, we can find peace.
