Meditation quotes address the universally known benefits of meditating. The Buddha said meditation brings wisdom. It can mean sitting in silence, walking in nature, sitting in a place of worship, or repeating a mantra or chant.
Delight in mediation and solitude. Compose yourself, be happy. You are a seeker.
Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine.
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.
Each human being was given two possibilities: action and contemplation. Both lead to the same place.
If we want to save the world, we must have a plan. But no plan will work unless we meditate.
Sleep is the best meditation.
Suppose you read about a pill that you could take once a day to reduce anxiety and increase your contentment. Would you take it? Suppose further that the pill has a great variety of side effects, all of them good: increased self-esteem, empathy, and trust; it even improves memory. Suppose, finally, that the pill is all natural and costs nothing. Now would you take it? The pill exists. It is meditation.
Meditation is to be aware of what is going on in your body, in your feelings, in your mind, and in the world.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Here is my wish for you and every other child, woman, and man on the face of the earth: Spend one week saying only kind, caring things to yourself. Say thank you at least ten times an hour, direct five toward yourself and five to the world at large. Compliment yourself (and others) each time an effort is made. Notice all the wonderful qualities and characteristics about yourself and those around you. One week. You will never go back. And your whole life will be a glorious meditation.
When you have the constant focus of going within and then acting, your life will unfold in magical ways.
Meditation is simply about being yourself and knowing about who that is. It is about coming to realize that you are on a path whether you like it or not, namely the path that is your life.
Meditation is the action of silence.
In dwelling, be close to the land. In meditation, go deep in the heart.
Prayer is when you talk to God; meditation is when you listen to God.
The kind of spirituality I value is one in which you get great joy out of contributing to life, not just sitting and meditating, although meditation is certainly valuable. But from meditation, from the resulting consciousness, I would like to see people in action creating the world they want to live in.
If I do not go within, I go without.
Neale Donald Walsch
Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.
