For years spiritual teachers have been telling us that we need to meditate…
Practice meditation regularly. Meditation leads to eternal bliss. Therefore meditate, meditate.
“To understand the immeasurable, the mind must be extraordinarily quiet, still.”
Alone let him constantly meditate in solitude on that which is salutary for his soul, for he who meditates in solitude attains supreme bliss.
“Meditation helps you to grow your own intuitive faculty. It becomes very clear what is going to fulfil you, what is going to help you flower.”
If we know the divine art of concentration, if we know the divine art of meditation, if we know the divine art of contemplation, easily and consciously we can unite the inner world and the outer world.
Meditation is painful in the beginning but it bestows immortal Bliss and supreme joy in the end.
Through meditation and by giving full attention to one thing at a time, we can learn to direct attention where we choose.
“Meditation practice is regarded as a good and in fact excellent way to overcome warfare in the world; our own warfare as well as greater warfare.”
“When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a lamp in a windless place.”
“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.”
“Health, a light body, freedom from cravings, a glowing skin, sonorous voice, fragrance of body: these signs indicate progress in the practice of meditation.”
“If you meditate, sooner or later you will come upon love. If you meditate deeply, sooner or later you will start feeling a tremendous love arising in you that you have never known before”.
“Meditation is not to escape from society, but to come back to ourselves and see what is going on. Once there is seeing, there must be acting. With mindfulness, we know what to do and what not to do to help.” –Thich Nhat Hanh
