When I am silent, I fall into the place where everything is music.
Meditation is not about solution or conclusion. It's about evolution.
Annie Zalezsak, November 4, 2013
No thought, no action, no movement, total stillness: only thus can one manifest the true nature and law of things from within and unconsciously, and at last become one with heaven and earth.
True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.
To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions.
In Silence there is eloquence. Stop weaving and see how the pattern improves.
The key is to be in a state of permanent connectedness with your inner body – to feel it at all times. This will rapidly deepen and transform your life. The more consciousness you direct into the inner body, the higher its vibrational frequency becomes.
Let us labour for an Inward Stillness
An inward stillness and an Inward Healing;
That perfect Silence, where the lips and heart
Are still, and we no longer entertain
Our own imperfect thoughts and vain opinions;
But God alone speaks in us and we wait
In singleness of heart, that we may know
His will, and in the silence of our Spirits,
That we may do That alone.
I have lived with many Zen masters, all of them cats.
One has to reach to the absolute state of awareness: that is Zen. You cannot do it every morning for a few minutes or for half an hour and then forget all about it. It has to become like your heartbeat. You have to sit in it, you have to walk in it. Yes, you have even to sleep in it.
The waves of the sea
Help me get back to me.
My words are like a ship, and the sea is their meaning. Come to me and I will take you to the depths of spirit.
“Getting away from it all,” many people want that, and of course ultimately the only way to get away from it all is to go within, now.
Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.
Henry David Thoreau
Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen – that stillness becomes a radiance.
Meditation is the art of being aware and conscious in our day to day living. Any action done with awareness is meditation. A meditative person is fully conscious in one action.
The reason why meditation is so important in Ayurveda is that it leads the mind to a ‘free zone’ that is not touched by disease. Until you know that such a place exists, your disease will seem to be taking over completely. This is the principal delusion that needs to be shattered.
It is undeniable that we all create scenarios and then become convinced by them, down to our very cells.
from Quantum Healing, by Deepak Chopra (about Deepak Chopra)
You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait. Do not even wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
Meditation gives you an opportunity to come to know your invisible self. It allows you to empty yourself of the endless hyperactivity of your mind, and to attain calmness. It teaches you to be peaceful, to remove stress, to receive answers where confusion previously reigned…
from Real Magic, by Wayne Dyer (about Wayne Dyer)
The only times that we can have what we long for are those moments when we stop grasping for it. At such times, all things are possible: “to a mind that is ‘still’ the whole universe surrenders”.
from If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him! by Sheldon B Kopp
Meditate, oft. Separate thyself for a season from the cares of the world. Get close to nature and learn from the lowliest of that which manifests in nature, in the earth; in the birds, in the trees, in the grass, in the flowers, in the bees; that the life of each is a manifesting, is a song of glory to its Maker. And do thou likewise!
Edgar Cayce Reading 1089-3
For, as has been indicated from the innate experience as well as from the longings within, a home – home – with all its deeper, inner meanings, is a portion of the entity's desire; to know, to experience, to have the "feel" of, to have the surroundings of that implied by the word home! Is it any wonder then that in all of thy meditation, Ohm-O-h-m-mmmmm has ever been, is ever a portion of that which raises self to the highest influence and the highest vibrations throughout its whole being that may be experienced by the entity?
Edgar Cayce Reading 1286-1
Realize that higher forces try to reach and help you, so let them succeed by dropping mental walls. Your mental walls are the only obstructions that obsruct Truth’s constant messages of help. The key to this is to silence the mind.
The Daily Guru
Some of us need to discover that we will not begin to live more fully until we have the courage to do and see and taste and experience much less than usual... And for a man who has let himself be drawn completely out of himself by his activity, nothing is more difficult than to sit still and rest, doing nothing at all. The very act of resting is the hardest and most courageous act he can perform.
Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths, or the turning inwards in prayer for five short minutes.
Only in quiet waters do things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.
