Meditation teaches us to focus and to pay clear attention to our experiences and responses as they arise, and to observe them without judging them.
Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.
Mindfulness meditation is the embrace of any and all mind states in awareness, without preferring one to another. If you want to know what you are here to do, how you can be more loving, or how to get through a difficult situation, my answer is always meditate.
Meditation is the only intentional, systematic human activity which at bottom is about not trying to improve yourself or get anywhere else, but simply to realize where you already are.
Meditation also helped me see that my expectations were just stories that I was telling myself about life. Meditation is not supposed to be the fabrication or the reinforcement of some particular state, but simply the cultivation of the awareness of whatever is arising in the mind.
Practicing meditation has repeatedly been shown to improve people’s attention, as well as improve job performance, productivity and satisfaction, and to enable better relationships with colleagues, resulting in a reduction of work-related stress. Having come to realize in the first stage of meditation that we are not our bodies, in the second stage we make an even more astounding discovery: we are not our minds either. A most useful approach to meditation practice is to consider it the most important activity of each day. When you have achieved a state of deep meditation, you unlock the door to your subconscious mind. The more regularly and the more deeply you meditate, the sooner you will find yourself acting always from a center of inner peace.

If we read the stories of the great spiritual teachers of the past, we find that they have attained spiritual realization through a great deal of meditation, solitude and practice.
The true practice of [meditation] is to sit as if you were drinking water when you are thirsty. You can make any human activity into meditation simply by being completely with it and doing it just to do it.
If we didn’t spend so much time reacting to things, we would spend less time feeling bothered. Meditation on the majestic energy of the universe should increase our love for humanity, should widen, not narrow, our hearts. By the practice of this meditation I am becoming calm and relaxed, More efficient and happier in all that I do, Both for my own sake as well as for others. I mean the whole thing about meditation and yoga is about connecting to the higher part of yourself, and then seeing that every living thing is connected in some way. Meditation is like giving a hug to ourselves, getting in touch with that awesome reality in us. You get peace of mind not by thinking about it or imagining it, but by quietening and relaxing the restless mind. Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. Keep your heart clear and transparent, and you will never be bound. A single disturbed thought creates ten thousand distractions.
Mindfulness practice means that we commit fully in each moment to be present; inviting ourselves to interface with this moment in full awareness, with the intention to embody as best we can an orientation of calmness, mindfulness, and equanimity right here and right now. That deep silence has a melody of its own, a sweetness unknown amid the harsh discords of the world’s sounds.
Mindfulness helps us get better at seeing the difference between what’s happening and the stories we tell ourselves about what’s happening, stories that get in the way of direct experience. Go within every day and find the inner strength so that the world will not blow your candle out. It means you have to let go of wordly belongings as only when you lose them you’ll understand that clinging to physical objects actually had no meaning. Take time to explore and contemplate these profound words from spiritual masters, teachers, and guides. Now, more than ever before, we can share the incredible diversity and power of spiritual traditions from around the world.
Contemplating the words of a spiritual teacher is a time-honored way to access your own deeper self.

When your intention is strong and you relish the opportunity to sit in meditation, that is a great gift.
While working we breathe, while sleeping we breathe, while sitting down we breathe… Why do we have time to breathe? The difference between prayer and meditation is that when we pray, we are asking for something, and when we meditate, we are listening to the answer. Meditation is more than simply deep relaxation it is a life changing practice that can help alleviate stress, anxiety, depression and bring inner peace. Schedule it as you would an extremely important appointment, and unfailingly keep your appointment with the Infinite. People talk about appreciating natural beauty – climbing mountains, seeing giraffes and tigers in Africa, and all sorts of things.
Healing words can make you a better person: follow them and you will discover what makes you happy. Taking time to slow down and consider the words of a more advanced practitioner can help catalyze the inner conditions for meditation. If you are a more experienced meditator, read our empowering article on The 5 Hidden Signs of Your Success. Whether you want to relax, stimulate creativity, gain enlightenment, or cultivate compassion and mindfulness, we help you learn how to let go. You could easily woo me into conversation with a few words from some author or teacher I’ve not heard before. During the difficult meditations you build up your strength, which creates meditation for peace.
For me, good quotes are like metaphysical shots of Italian espresso that go straight to my head. In the same way, if we see the importance of meditation practice we will find the time to practice. This is actually far more beautiful than flora and fauna, far more fantastic, far more painful and colorful and delightful.
Silence your mind through concentration and meditation, and you will discover the peace of the Spirit that you are, and have always been.
