“If there is no meditation, then you are like a blind man in a world of great beauty, light and color” - Krishnamurti
“To realize your true nature, you must wait for the right moment and right conditions. When the time comes, you are awakened as if from a dream. You understand that what you have found is your own and doesn’t come from anywhere outside.”
Meditation transforms us---
Meditation enlarges our perspective, allows us to see the world and ourselves more clearly, less judgmentally, and more compassionately.
“If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best moment of your life.” - Wu-Men
“When you meditate there should be no effort to control and no attempt to be peaceful. Do not be overly solemn, or feel that you are taking part in some special ritual. you and Let go even of the idea that are meditating. Let your body remain as it is your breath as you find it.”
- Sogyal Rinpoche
“In your everyday life you can practice meditation by taking any routine activity that normally is only a means to an end and giving it your fullest attention, so that it becomes an end in itself. For example, every time you wash your hands, pay attention to all the sense perceptions associated with the activity: the sound and feel of the water, the movement of your hands, the scent of the soap, and so on. Be totally present. There is one certain criterion by which you can measure your success in this practice: the degree of peace that you feel within.” - Eckhart Tolle
Give up waiting as a state of mind. When you catch yourself slipping into waiting… snap out of it. Come into the present moment. Just be , and enjoy being. If you are present, there is never any need for you to wait for anything. So next time somebody says, “Sorry to have kept you waiting,” you can reply, “That’s all right I wasn’t waiting. I was just standing here enjoying myself—in joy in my self.”
– The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle
“Whatever you do, don’t shut off your pain; accept your pain and remain vulnerable. However desperate you become, accept your pain as it is, because it is in fact trying to hand you a priceless gift: the chance of discovering through spiritual practice, what lies behind sorrow. “
- Sogyal Rinpoche
The less we are attached to life, the more alive we can become. The less we have preferences about life, the more deeply we can experience and participate in life. Embracing life may be more about tasting than it is about either raisin toast or blueberry muffins.
– RN Remen, MD
Be alive in every moment, and by waking up yourself, you will wake up the world.
– Thich Nhat Hanh
Are you worried? Do you have many “what if” thoughts? You are identified with your mind, which is projecting itself into an imaginary future situation and creating fear. There is no way that you can cope with such a situation, because it doesn’t exist. It’s a mental phantom. You can stop this by simply acknowledging the present moment. All you ever have to deal with is this moment. Ask yourself what “problem” you have right now, not next year, tomorrow, or five minutes from now.
“Life was never meant to be a struggle, just a gentle progression from one point to another, much like walking through a valley on a sunny day.”
- Stuart Wilde
Meditation is the practice by which there is constant observation of the mind. It means focusing the mind on one point, stilling the mind in order to perceive the SELF. By stopping the waves of thought you come to understand your TRUE NATURE and discover the wisdom and tranquility that lie WITHIN.
Pay more attention to the silence than the sounds. Paying attention to the outer silence creates inner silence: the mind becomes still. A portal is opening up. Every sound is born out of silence. Silence enables the sound to be. It has been said that nothing in this world is so like God as silence. All you have to do is pay attention to it. Silence without, stillness within.
“ Happiness and spiritual growth are connected.
Being peaceful and being happy form the most important foundation of spiritual practice. Then the practice goes by itself. “
- Mother Meera
“Within myself was the calmness of the bottom of a deep and unfathomable lake. Like the lake I felt that my physical body with its mind and emotions could be ruffled on the surface, but nothing, nay nothing could disturb the calmness of my soul.” - J. Krishnamurti
Is there a difference between happiness and inner peace? Yes. Happiness depends on conditions being perceived as positive; inner peace does not.
I have learned to allow the present moment to be and to accept the impermanent nature of all things and conditions. Thus have I found peace.
– Buddhist Monk
Create No More Pain in the Present. Nobody’s life is entirely free of pain and sorrow. Isn’t it a question of learning to live with them rather than trying to avoid them? Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life. The present moment is sometimes unacceptable, unpleasant or awful. It is as it is. Allow the present moment to be. Accept, then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. Make it your friend and ally, not enemy. This will miraculously transform your life.
Surrender to each moment, to the reality of that moment. Knowing that what is cannot be undone – because it already is – you say yes to what is or accept what isn’t. Then you do what you have to do, whatever the situation requires.
This is the state of acceptance. No more suffering, no more unhappiness.
You then live in a state of nonresistance,
World Inside My Heart
You created rules for a better world But you found a way to break them Because they made you suffer But you keep on not being free But you still keep on suffering In our hearts we find our pain… our freedom… our rules.”
“We give thanks for places of silence and peace. May we find such places within ourselves. We give thanks for places of beauty and refuge. May we find such places within ourselves. We give thanks for places of love and acceptance. May we find such places within ourselves. May we begin to heal the outer world by the integrity of our inner lives.”
“Suppose someone was able to transport you to the kingdom of God. When you arrive, how would you walk? In such a beautiful place, would you walk under pressure, running and anxious like we do so much of the time? Or would you enjoy every moment of being in paradise? In the kingdom of God, people are free and they enjoy every moment. So they do not walk like we do. The Land is not somewhere else; it is right here, in the present.” - Thich Nhat Hanh
"If you will stay close to nature, to its simplicity, to the small things hardly noticeable, those things can unexpectedly become great and immeasurable." "There is much beauty here because there is much beauty everywhere."
Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it. – Confucius
You see beauty where you desire to see beauty.
You see ugliness where you are afraid to see beauty.
Neale Donald Walsch “Conversations with God”
“Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is letting go of the past, and is therefore the means for correcting our misperceptions.”
“We all cling to the past and because we cling to the past we become unavailable to the present.”
- Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
Be here now. Don’t anticipate, don’t yearn for things of the past. Let the past go with forgiveness and let the future go with no anticipation.
“Be Still and Know that I AM GOD”
“You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are.“
"I know no other advice than this: Go within and scale the depths of your being from which your very life springs forth." "We are unutterably alone, essentially, especially in the things most intimate and most important to us." "Reflect on the world that you carry within yourself. And name this thinking what you wish... Your innermost happening is worth all your love."
- Rainer Maria Rilke
“Healing doesn’t mean as you once were but rather being able to function AS YOU ARE with wholeness and wellness. In some cases it means you get a taste of the grace of God in such wonderful ways that you are able to function with joy and gladness.”
“When a loved one is lost or away, you suffer.
But if you know how to look deeply, you have a chance to realize that his or her nature is truly the nature of no birth, no death. There is manifestation and there is the cessation of manifestation in order to have another manifestation. You have to be very keen and very alert in order to recognize the new manifestation of just one person. But with practice and effort you can do it. Pay attention to all the leaves, the flowers, the birds and the dewdrops. If u can stop and look deeply, you’ll be able to recognize your beloved one manifesting again and again in many forms.
Faith is the greatest gift we can receive. And all He asks is just believe in Me and you will find, You can heal the sick and help the blind, Feed the hungry and clothe the poor, Stop the hate and end the wars. Just LOOK INSIDE YOURSELF and see That A PART OF YOU is really ME.
The purpose of our life is to seek happiness.
– Dalai Lama
“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.”
