Zen is the purest of meditations: just sit silently, doing nothing.Osho Meditations Sayings By Osho: Zen is the purest of meditations: just sit silently, doing nothing.
Jesse rounded forward under the towel and cozied his feet in the bath water. It was as if no one else were around and Jesse was once again alone and at ease with his meditations. He said, "I can't figure it out: do you want to be like me, or do you want to be me?Ron Hansen Meditations Sayings By Ron Hansen: Jesse rounded forward under the towel and cozied his feet in the bath water. It
A regular meditation practice is one of the highest forms of self-love.Renae A. Sauter Meditations Sayings By Renae A. Sauter: A regular meditation practice is one of the highest forms of self-love.
Here, in this painting, in these (hopefully) creative meditations, you will see teh same sky and the same sun, the same story of struggle, of fall and grace, of descent and ascent, of death and resurrection. The same God. The same gifts. If He's not tired of it, why should I be? If His brush is still in His hand, if His words still roll, what can I do but stick my tongue out the cornder of my mouth and diligently (but pitifully) rip Him off? What can I do but meditate on His meditations? (xii)N.D. Wilson Meditations Sayings By N.D. Wilson: Here, in this painting, in these (hopefully) creative meditations, you will see teh same sky
Never be limited by others' inability to think of you in terms big enough or dreams grand enough. Never allow yourself to define what is possible for you in your life by others' limited vision of what they believe is possible for them in theirs.Judy M. Ford Meditations Sayings By Judy M. Ford: Never be limited by others' inability to think of you in terms big enough or

Your meditations may be as profound, as exalted, as devout as you like; you may practise every pious exercise you can manage, but all this is as nothing in comparison with the Blessed Sacrament. What we do may be godly, but this sacrament is God Himself!Johannes Tauler Meditations Sayings By Johannes Tauler: Your meditations may be as profound, as exalted, as devout as you like; you may
If there is anything Zen strongly emphasizes it is the attainment of freedom; that is, freedom from all unnatural encumbrances. Meditation is something artificially put on; it does not belong to the native activity of the mind. Upon what do the fowls of the air meditate? Upon what do the fish in the water meditate? They fly; they swim. Is not that enough? Who wants to fix his mind on the unity of God and man, or on the nothingness of life? Who wants to be arrested in the daily manifestations of his life-activity by such meditations as the goodness of a divine being or the everlasting fire of hell?D.T. Suzuki Meditations Sayings By D.T. Suzuki: If there is anything Zen strongly emphasizes it is the attainment of freedom; that is,
What our eyes behold may well be the text of life but one's meditations on the text and the disclosures of these meditations are no less a part of the structure of reality.Wallace Stevens Meditations Sayings By Wallace Stevens: What our eyes behold may well be the text of life but one's meditations on
Instead of animals, we can offer our own life-force energy to the gods in the form of spiritual vows. A typical modern Hindu vow, for example, may consist of intense fasts, lengthy meditations, mantra recitations, abstinence of sex, or other types of vows that can last from 40 days to one year or more. In other words, nowadays, our own time and energy are far more valuable to us than the relatively easily acquired flesh of animals which can be found on every street corner. Regardless of the source, spiritual sacrifice is the fee we give to the gods in exchange for their help in transforming energy into the form we desire.Michael Denney Meditations Sayings By Michael Denney: Instead of animals, we can offer our own life-force energy to the gods in the
From this, one can make a deduction which is quite certainly the ultimate truth of jigsaw puzzles: despite appearances, puzzling is not a solitary game: every move the puzzler makes, the puzzlemaker has made before; every piece the puzzler picks up, and picks up again, and studies and strokes, every combination he tries, and tries a second time, every blunder and every insight, each hope and each discouragement have all been designed, calculated, and decided by the other.Georges Perec Meditations Sayings By Georges Perec: From this, one can make a deduction which is quite certainly the ultimate truth of
Ah!' said Michel, tempted, 'you have modern poems?'
'Of course. For instance, Martillac's 'Electric Harmonies,' which won a prize last year from the Academic of Sciences, and Monsieur de Pulfasse's 'Meditations on Oxygen;' and we have the 'Poetic Parallelogram,' and even the 'Decarbonated Odes ... '
Michel couldn't bear hearing another word and found himself outside again, stupefied and overcome. Not even this tiny amount of art had escaped the pernicious influence of the age! Science, Chemistry, Mechanics had invaded the realm of poetry! 'And such things are read,' he murmured as he hurried through the streets, ' perhaps even bought! And signed by the authors and placed on the shelves marked 'Literature.' But not one copy of Balzac, not one work by Victor Hugo! Where can I find such things-where, if not the Library ...
Jules Verne Meditations Sayings By Jules Verne: Ah!' said Michel, tempted, 'you have modern poems?' 'Of course. For instance, Martillac's 'Electric Harmonies,'
How do I recognize a real saint? Whom I shall see within me whether it is in dreams or trances or meditations, He will be the Saint to me. Because God is the only Saint in this world. He is within our bodies. When He will manifest within my body in the form of a person, he will be saint to me.Jibankrishna Meditations Sayings By Jibankrishna: How do I recognize a real saint? Whom I shall see within me whether it
A thought weaves into another thought, seeking the other.
The thought world has its-own Inner Life.
A rose acts upon us through its symbolism, through its beauty, through our conscious & sub-conscious mind.
Meditating we tap into the thought form of 'rose adoration'.
Natasa Nuit Pantovic Meditations Sayings By Natasa Nuit Pantovic: A thought weaves into another thought, seeking the other. The thought world has its-own Inner
My first meditation teacher told me that there is no such thing as a bad meditation. He was right. During the difficult meditations you build up your strength, which creates meditation for peace.Ajahn Brahm Meditations Sayings By Ajahn Brahm: My first meditation teacher told me that there is no such thing as a bad
Therefore, since I could count on no continuity of sapient will to carry me through, indeed since all that was certain was that I must suffer repeated loss of same in order to maintain my body's vitality, my only course was to accomplish with what I hoped was the greater puissance of conscious craft what I had already once barely managed to achieve by accident of fate.

Which was to use these periods of conscious lucidity to engrave a mantric tropism upon the presentient levels of my mind with perpetual chanting repetition and diligent meditation, so that even when reason and conscious will had once more fled, my Bloomenkind self would, during periods of enforced floral nirvana, be programmed to follow the yellow, to follow the sun that sooner or later must rise during a cycle of such meditations into its percept sphere.

"Follow the sun, follow the yellow, follow the Yellow Brick Road ...
Norman Spinrad Meditations Sayings By Norman Spinrad: Therefore, since I could count on no continuity of sapient will to carry me through,
Every single person, whether religious or irreligious, actively worships. They have identified something bigger than themselves that they believe is worthy of their money, time, and the meditations of their hearts.Matt Chandler Meditations Sayings By Matt Chandler: Every single person, whether religious or irreligious, actively worships. They have identified something bigger than
What things there are to write, if one could only write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach.Logan Pearsall Smith Meditations Sayings By Logan Pearsall Smith: What things there are to write, if one could only write them! My mind is
Guilt is non-acceptance. Repentance is acceptance.Sri Amma Bhagwan. Meditations Sayings By Sri Amma Bhagwan.: Guilt is non-acceptance. Repentance is acceptance.
Now, all quiet, all rusty, wind and rain in possession, lamps extinguished, Mugby Junction dead and indistinct, with its robe drawn over its head, like Caesar. Now, too, as the belated traveller plodded up and down, a shadowy train went by him in the gloom which was no other than the train of a life. From whatsoever intangible deep cutting or dark tunnel it emerged, here it came, unsummoned and unannounced, stealing upon him and passing away into obscurity. Here, mournfully went by, a child who had never had a childhood or known a parent, inseparable from a youth with a bitter sense of his namelessness, coupled to a man the enforced business of whose best years had been distasteful and oppressive, linked to an ungrateful friend, dragging after him a woman once beloved. Attendant, with many a clank and wrench, were lumbering cares, dark meditations, huge dim disappointments, monotonous years, a long jarring line of the discords of a solitary and unhappy existence.Charles Dickens Meditations Sayings By Charles Dickens: Now, all quiet, all rusty, wind and rain in possession, lamps extinguished, Mugby Junction dead
All meditations are nothing but efforts to bring you to the present. When you live in the present moment, with no past hanging around you, with no future projection, you are free from life and death, you are free from body and mind. You are free - simply free - you are freedom.Rajneesh Meditations Sayings By Rajneesh: All meditations are nothing but efforts to bring you to the present. When you live
My stories are sometimes closer to poems or meditations, but often there is at least a little narrative in them.Lydia Davis Meditations Sayings By Lydia Davis: My stories are sometimes closer to poems or meditations, but often there is at least
In their meditations, the high priests and priestesses of Atlantis had seen that the Atlantean civilization was going to end cataclysmically.Frederick Lenz Meditations Sayings By Frederick Lenz: In their meditations, the high priests and priestesses of Atlantis had seen that the Atlantean
Fukuyama's thesis that history has climaxed with liberal capitalism may have been widely derided, but it is accepted, even assumed, at the level of the cultural unconscious. It should be remembered, though, that even when Fukuyama advanced it, the idea that history had reached a 'terminal beach' was not merely triumphalist. Fukuyama warned that his radiant city would be haunted, but he thought its specters would be Nietzschean rather than Marxian. Some of Nietzsche's most prescient pages are those in which he describes the 'oversaturation of an age with history'. 'It leads an age into a dangerous mood of irony in regard to itself', he wrote in Untimely Meditations, 'and subsequently into the even more dangerous mood of cynicism', in which 'cosmopolitan fingering', a detached spectatorialism, replaces engagement and involvement. This is the condition of Nietzsche's Last Man, who has seen everything, but is decadently enfeebled precisely by this excess of (self) awareness.Mark Fisher Meditations Sayings By Mark Fisher: Fukuyama's thesis that history has climaxed with liberal capitalism may have been widely derided, but
If you listen to your body and your intuition, they'll guide you well. There are countless ways to develop listening skills. Some helpful and classic practices include: dancing and drumming, sitting and walking meditations, t'ai chi or chi kung, painting or journal writing. It's important to find what works for you, and even the time of day or night that works best for you. Whatever you choose, the commonality is that they all offer an opportunity for quieting the mind, and slowing down enough to be
present and able to listen for inner guidance - and guidance from the plants themselves.
Robin Rose Bennett Meditations Sayings By Robin Rose Bennett: If you listen to your body and your intuition, they'll guide you well. There are
The more a person knows the less they talk. I shall cease speaking and endeavor to instill a large band of silence inside myself in order to forge a deeper and closer relationship with all of nature. Only when I attain absolute quietude shall I understand the supreme virtue of humanity and understand the meaning of both life and death. Only when I achieve absolute stillness shall I come to a perfect realization of the meaning of existence innate in all things.Kilroy J. Oldster Meditations Sayings By Kilroy J. Oldster: The more a person knows the less they talk. I shall cease speaking and endeavor
If you can't fall asleep, learn how to meditate. I would recommend you listen to a beautiful tape called Spiritual Power, Spiritual Practice [Energy Evaluation Meditations For Morning and Evening, 1998]. It was the one that got me out of my writer's block when I was writing Caramelo. It's by Carolyn Myss.Sandra Cisneros Meditations Sayings By Sandra Cisneros: If you can't fall asleep, learn how to meditate. I would recommend you listen to
In every direction upon these moors there were traces of some vanished race which had passed utterly away, and left as its sole record strange monuments of stone, irregular mounds which contained the burned ashes of the dead, and curious earthworks which hinted at prehistoric strife. The glamour and mystery of the place, with its sinister atmosphere of forgotten nations, appealed to the imagination of my friend, and he spent much of his time in long walks and solitary meditations upon the moor. TheArthur Conan Doyle Meditations Sayings By Arthur Conan Doyle: In every direction upon these moors there were traces of some vanished race which had
One day you realise your old life was only an escape from an inner silenceJudy Croome Meditations Sayings By Judy Croome: One day you realise your old life was only an escape from an inner silence
When I was fifteen or sixteen I carried around in the streets of Brooklyn a paperback copy of Plato's 'Republic', front cover facing outward. I had read only some of it and understood less, but I was excited by it and knew it was something wonderful. How much I wanted an older person to notice me carrying it and be impressed, to pat me on the shoulder and say... I didn't know what exactly.

from: 'The Examined Life, Philosophical Meditations
Robert Nozick Meditations Sayings By Robert Nozick: When I was fifteen or sixteen I carried around in the streets of Brooklyn a
Let us, at the very commencement of our meditations, admit that there is nothing so natural to man, nothing so insidious and hidden from our sight, nothing so difficult and dangerous, as pride. Let us feel that [as if] nothing but a very determined and persevering waiting on God and Christ will discover [show] how lacking we are in the grace of humility, and how impotent to obtain what we seek. Let us study the character of Christ until our souls are filled with the love and admiration of his lowliness. And let us believe that, when we are broken down under a sense of our pride, and our impotence to cast it out, Jesus Christ himself will come in to impart this grace too, as a part of his wondrous life within us.Andrew Murray Meditations Sayings By Andrew Murray: Let us, at the very commencement of our meditations, admit that there is nothing so
The best time to meditate, when the doctor is tongue tied.Aporva Kala Meditations Sayings By Aporva Kala: The best time to meditate, when the doctor is tongue tied.
Don't judge your meditations. Don't rate them. The physical mind cannot tell how well you did. As long as you are sitting there trying, something will happen.Frederick Lenz Meditations Sayings By Frederick Lenz: Don't judge your meditations. Don't rate them. The physical mind cannot tell how well you
Appreciation empowers not just money transactions, but all interactions. Gratitude is one of the greatest meditations of a lifetime, the fastest attitude uplifter I know. Be grateful for all the good in your life and your good will only increase, along with your happiness.Alan Cohen Meditations Sayings By Alan Cohen: Appreciation empowers not just money transactions, but all interactions. Gratitude is one of the greatest

June 16th NO SHAME IN NEEDING HELP "Don't be ashamed of needing help. You have a duty to fulfill just like a soldier on the wall of battle. So what if you are injured and can't climb up without another soldier's help?" - MARCUS AURELIUS, MEDITATIONS, 7.7 No one ever said you were born with all the tools you'd need to solve every problem you'd face in life. In fact, as a newborn you were practically helpless. Someone helped you then, and you came to understand that you could ask for that help. It was how you knew you were loved. Well, you are still loved. You can ask anyone for help. You don't have to face everything on your own. If you need help, comrade, just ask.Ryan Holiday Meditations Sayings By Ryan Holiday: June 16th NO SHAME IN NEEDING HELP "Don't be ashamed of needing help. You have
Modern reality has got such a hold on us that ... when we attempt to reconstruct the ancient days in our thoughts ... the minor events of our lives tear us away from our meditations, and ... thrust us back into our personal [problems]Vincent Van Gogh Meditations Sayings By Vincent Van Gogh: Modern reality has got such a hold on us that ... when we attempt to
My art in the last period has all been in small format, but my paintings have become even deeper and more spiritual, speaking truly through colour. Feeling that because of my illness I would not be able to paint very much longer, I worked like a man obsessed on these little 'Meditations' (a long series of small paintings he made during the last years of his life, with as main motif the schema of a face, ed.). And now I leave these small but, to me, important works to the future and to people who love art.Alexej Von Jawlensky Meditations Sayings By Alexej Von Jawlensky: My art in the last period has all been in small format, but my paintings

Nothing impresses me any more, save and except my own deep meditations.Sri Chinmoy Meditations Sayings By Sri Chinmoy: Nothing impresses me any more, save and except my own deep meditations.
Whatever happens, happens such as you are either formed by nature able to bear it, or not able to bear it. If such as you are by nature form'd able to bear, bear it and fret not: But if such as you are not naturally able to bear, don't fret; for when it has consum'd you, itself will perish. Remember, however, you are by nature form'd able to bear whatever it is in the power of your own opinion to make supportable or tolerable, according as you conceive it advantageous, or your duty, to do so.Marcus Aurelius Meditations Sayings By Marcus Aurelius: Whatever happens, happens such as you are either formed by nature able to bear it,
I've been busy and need to slow my little tail down and sit and meditate somewhere. I do my walking meditations every day, but just to sit still. Just to be in one place and just to be quiet.Valerie June Meditations Sayings By Valerie June: I've been busy and need to slow my little tail down and sit and meditate
If I have observed anything by experience, it is this: a man may take the measure of his growth and decay in grace according to his thoughts and meditations upon the person of Christ, and the glory of Christ's Kingdom, and of His love.John Owen Meditations Sayings By John Owen: If I have observed anything by experience, it is this: a man may take the
My disciples are vegetarian not as a cult, not as a creed. They are vegetarians because their meditations make them more human, more of the heart, and they can see the whole stupidity of people killing living beings for their food. It is their sensitivity, their aesthetic awareness that makes them vegetarians.Rajneesh Meditations Sayings By Rajneesh: My disciples are vegetarian not as a cult, not as a creed. They are vegetarians
I saw Hunter when I woke up. I saw Hunter as I ate a bowl of cereal. I saw him in human sexuality, where he seemed to be trying to break a record for most innuendos in one hour. I saw him at work where he assaulted my email. I saw him every night at dinner. I saw him go to and from the bathroom. I saw him at our stupid meditations, where were as pointless as socks with sandals.
I. Saw. Him. EVERYWHERE.
Chelsea M. Cameron Meditations Sayings By Chelsea M. Cameron: I saw Hunter when I woke up. I saw Hunter as I ate a bowl

A prayer/meditation a day, keeps the Doctor away.Abhijit Naskar Meditations Sayings By Abhijit Naskar: A prayer/meditation a day, keeps the Doctor away.
Intolerance and superstition has always been the domain of the more stupid amongst the common folk and, I conjecture, will never be uprooted, for they are as eternal as stupidity itself. There, where mountains tower today, one day there will be seas; there where today seas surge, will one day be deserts. But stupidity will remain stupidity. Nicodemus de Boot, Meditations on life, Happiness and ProsperityAndrzej Sapkowski Meditations Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Intolerance and superstition has always been the domain of the more stupid amongst the common

If your creativity comes out of your silence, out of your Zen, out of your meditations, then it is authentic, original. If it comes only as an occupation because you are feeling lost and there is nothing to do - a long holiday, so you start doing something ... That is not coming out of your silences, it is coming out of your crazy mind.Rajneesh Meditations Sayings By Rajneesh: If your creativity comes out of your silence, out of your Zen, out of your
Had a lifetime's hard-won wisdom fled him along with his health and strength? He was a maester, trained and chained in the great Citadel of Oldtown. What had he come to, when superstition filled his head as if he were an ignorant fieldhand? And yet ... and yet ... the comet burned even by day now, while pale grey steam rose from the hot vents of Dragonmont behind the castle, and yestermorn a white raven had brought word from the Citadel itself, word long-expected but no less fearful for all that, word of summer's end. Omens, all. Too many to deny. What does it all mean? he wanted to cry. "Maester Cressen, we have visitors." Pylos spoke softly, as if loath to disturb Cressen's solemn meditations. Had he known what drivel filled his head, he would have shouted.George R R Martin Meditations Sayings By George R R Martin: Had a lifetime's hard-won wisdom fled him along with his health and strength? He was
Your private thoughts give birth to your public acts.Matshona Dhliwayo Meditations Sayings By Matshona Dhliwayo: Your private thoughts give birth to your public acts.
My homeland has many palm-trees
and the thrush-song fills its air;
no bird here can sing as well
as the birds sing over there.

We have fields more full of flowers
and a starrier sky above,
we have woods more full of life
and a life more full of love.

Lonely night-time meditations
please me more when I am there;
my homeland has many palm-trees
and the thrush-song fills its air.

Such delights as my land offers
Are not found here nor elsewhere;
lonely night-time meditations
please me more when I am there;
My homeland has many palm-trees
and the thrush-song fills its air.

Don't allow me, God, to die
without getting back to where
I belong, without enjoying
the delights found only there,
without seeing all those palm-trees,
hearing thrush-songs fill the air.
Goncalves Dias Meditations Sayings By Goncalves Dias: My homeland has many palm-treesand the thrush-song fills its air;no bird here can sing as
Men seek for seclusion in the wilderness, by the seashore, or in the mountains - a dream you have cherished only too fondly yourself. But such fancies are wholly unworthy of a philosopher, since at any moment you choose you can retire within yourself. Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul; above all, he who possesses resources in himself, which he need only contemplate to secure immediate ease of mind - the ease that is but another word for a well-ordered spirit. Avail yourself often, then, of this retirement, and so continually renew yourself.Marcus Aurelius Meditations Sayings By Marcus Aurelius: Men seek for seclusion in the wilderness, by the seashore, or in the mountains -
Ever since that day in Chicago, whenever I see such scenes, I think of a quote by Billat-Savarin, the eighteenth-century 'modern' gastronome, well known for his writings and meditations on the physiology of taste and for his famous dictum 'We are what we eat.' But he also wrote even more revealingly: 'The destiny of a nation depends on how it feeds itself.Mireille Guiliano Meditations Sayings By Mireille Guiliano: Ever since that day in Chicago, whenever I see such scenes, I think of a
But in truth, neither the lonely meditations of the hermit nor the turmulos raptures of the reveller, are capable of satisfying man's heart. From the one we gather unquiet speculation, from the other satiety. The mind flags beneath the weight of thought, and droops in thee heartless intercourse of those whose sole aim is amusement. There is no fruition in their vacant kindness, and sharp rocs lur beneath the smiling ripples of these shallow waters.Mary Shelley Meditations Sayings By Mary Shelley: But in truth, neither the lonely meditations of the hermit nor the turmulos raptures of
From this day forth I place
dressmakers above philosophers. Those people bring beauty

Elsewhere I've written that Jesus came not only for those who skip morning meditations, but also for real sinners, thieves, adulterers, and terrorists, for those caught up in squalid choices and failed dreams. I HAVE COME TO CALL NOT THE SELF-RIGHTEOUS, BUT SINNERS. (MATT. 9:13)Brennan Manning Meditations Sayings By Brennan Manning: Elsewhere I've written that Jesus came not only for those who skip morning meditations, but

What are you thinking of so earnestly?" said he, as they walked back to the ballroom; "not of your partner, I hope, for, by that shake of the head, your meditations are not satisfactory."
Catherine coloured, and said, "I was not thinking of anything."
That is artful and deep, to be sure; but I had rather be told at once that you will not tell me."
Well then, I will not."
Thank you; for now we shall soon be acquainted, as I am authorized to tease you on this subject whenever we meet, and nothing in the world advances intimacy so much.

I see You, Every time I look into Buddha's eyes. I give myself to You. Every time I alter one of Your 1,000s names. Honestly & fully I love You. Through Christ and Maria, Shiva and Shakti, Krishna and Radha, With every day that passes and every breath I take. I enter gratitude for receiving Your Love. Obeying Your Laws of Truthfulness and Ahimsa, Weaving Prana With hearts and souls of Gaia. Through mysticism, shamanism, sufism, and ecstatic meditations. I yearn to touch You, to feel You, to be You. Within this amazing Journey of Awareness of Your Consciousness.Natasa Nuit Pantovic Meditations Sayings By Natasa Nuit Pantovic: I see You, Every time I look into Buddha's eyes. I give myself to You.

The other is not outside you but living within you.Sri Amma Bhagwan. Meditations Sayings By Sri Amma Bhagwan.: The other is not outside you but living within you.
Meditation is nothing but a way to learn how to do a thing totally - once you have learnt, make your whole life a meditation, forget all about meditations, let the life be the only law, let the life be the only meditation. And then time disappears.Rajneesh Meditations Sayings By Rajneesh: Meditation is nothing but a way to learn how to do a thing totally -
The Prophet answered: "How could I but be a thankful servant?"1 He did not demand of his Companions the worship, fasting, and meditations that he exacted of himself.Tariq Ramadan Meditations Sayings By Tariq Ramadan: The Prophet answered: "How could I but be a thankful servant?"1 He did not demand

By becoming aware of God's Spirit, by slowing down and paying attention to the tastes and sounds and smells of the food we make and eat, we infuse our meals - and by extension our hearts - with a sense of awe, a depth of prayer that cannot help but transform our mindless eating into moving meditations.Mary DeTurris Poust Meditations Sayings By Mary DeTurris Poust: By becoming aware of God's Spirit, by slowing down and paying attention to the tastes
When we condescend, when we act consistently with a sense of the character of people in general which demeans them, we impoverish them AND ourselves, and preclude our having a part in the creation of the highest wealth, the testimony to the mysterious beauty of life we all value in psalms and tragedies and epics and meditations, in short stories and novels.Marilynne Robinson Meditations Sayings By Marilynne Robinson: When we condescend, when we act consistently with a sense of the character of people
My whole teaching consists of two words, meditation and love. Meditate so that you can feel immense silence, and love so that your life can become a song, a dance, a celebration. You will have to move between the two, and if you can move easily, if you can move without any effort, you have learned the greatest thing in life.Osho Meditations Sayings By Osho: My whole teaching consists of two words, meditation and love. Meditate so that you can
Whether you've never meditated before or you've been doing it religiously for years, it is always good to evaluate (or re-evaluate) your practice. Although I've been meditating and teaching it for years, I still enjoy reading new information about it, learning new techniques, and checking out new meditation recordings. There is always something to learn because there are as many ways to meditate as there are people who are doing it.Liberty Forrest Meditations Sayings By Liberty Forrest: Whether you've never meditated before or you've been doing it religiously for years, it is

No single English intellectual symbolises the idea of Renaissance man more than Bacon. He wrote on aspects of law, science, history, government, politics, ethics, religion and colonialism, as well as gardens, parents, children and health.
The key work for appreciating the width of his interests is his Essays, originally published in 1597, and enlarged twice before his death. These meditations, often only a page long, give a remarkable insight into the thought of the period.

The soul of a true christian, as I then wrote my meditations, appeared like such a little white flower as we see in the spring of the year; low and humble on the ground, opening its bosom
to receive the pleasant beams of the sun's glory; rejoicing, as it were, in a calm rapture; diffusing around a sweet fragrancy; standing peacefully and lovingly, in the midst of other
flowers round about; all in like manner opening their bosoms to drink in the light of the sun.
Jonathan Edwards Meditations Sayings By Jonathan Edwards: The soul of a true christian, as I then wrote my meditations, appeared like such

At times, productivity means doing nothing at all.Gina Greenlee Meditations Sayings By Gina Greenlee: At times, productivity means doing nothing at all.
When people injure you, ask yourself what good or harm they thought would come of it. If you understand that, you'll feel sympathy rather than outrage or anger. Your sense of good and evil may be the same as theirs, or near it, in which case you have to excuse them. Or your sense of good and evil may differ from theirs. In which case they're misguided and deserve your compassion. Is that so hard?Marcus Aurelius Meditations Sayings By Marcus Aurelius: When people injure you, ask yourself what good or harm they thought would come of

Without intention, all these postures, these breathing practices, meditations, and the like can become little more than ineffectual gestures. When animated by intention, however, the simplest movement, the briefest meditation, and the contents of one breath cycle are made potent.Donna Farhi Meditations Sayings By Donna Farhi: Without intention, all these postures, these breathing practices, meditations, and the like can become little

When those of Jewish blood exhibit moral or intellectual superiority, genius or special talent, we feel pride in them, even if they have abjured the faith like Spinoza, Marx, Disraeli or Heine. Despite the meditations of pundits or the decrees of council, our own instincts and acts, and those of others, have defined for us the term 'Jew.'Louis D. Brandeis Meditations Sayings By Louis D. Brandeis: When those of Jewish blood exhibit moral or intellectual superiority, genius or special talent, we
The silence in the room was deep as the night itself. Biff stood transfixed, lost in his meditations. Then suddenly he felt a quickening in him. His heart turned and he leaned his back against the counter for support. For in a swift radiance of illumination he saw a glimpse of human struggle and of valour. Of the endless fluid passage of humanity through endless time. And of those who labour and of those who - one word - love. His soul expanded. But for a moment only. For in him he felt a warning, a shaft of terror. Between the two worlds he was suspended ... suspended between radiance and darkness, between bitter irony and faith ... And would he just stand here like a jittery nanny or would he pull himself together and be reasonable? For after all was he a sensible man or was he not?Carson McCullers Meditations Sayings By Carson McCullers: The silence in the room was deep as the night itself. Biff stood transfixed, lost
I feel my disease, and I feel that my want of alarm and lively affecting conviction forms its most obstinate ingredient; I try to stir up the emotion, and feel myself harassed and distressed at the impotency of my own meditations. But why linger without the threshold in the face of a warm and urgent invitation? "Come unto me." Do not think it is your office to heal one part of the disease, and Christ's to heal the remainder.Thomas Chalmers Meditations Sayings By Thomas Chalmers: I feel my disease, and I feel that my want of alarm and lively affecting
Descartes' Meditations; doubt rise and results in clear and distinct ideas. all in the mind and all innate. Spinoza bakes the best cake, love God intellectually. Oh!

All your experiences, all your meditations, all your prayer, all that you do, is self-centred. It is strengthening the self, adding momentum, gathering momentum, so it is taking you in the opposite direction. Whatever you do to be free from the self also is a self-centred activity.U.G. Krishnamurti Meditations Sayings By U.G. Krishnamurti: All your experiences, all your meditations, all your prayer, all that you do, is self-centred.
The Virgin Mary is called the [Greek words] (the "book of the Word of life") by the Greek Church. The book of the Gospel, the book of Christ's origins and life, can be written and proclaimed because God has first written his living Word in the living book of the Virgin's being, which she has offered to her Lord in all its purity and humility - the whiteness of a chaste, empty page. If the name of Mary does not often appear in the pages of the Gospel as evident participant in the action, it is because she is the human ground of humility and obedience upon which every letter of Christ's life is written. She is the Theotokos, too, in the sense that she is the book that bears, and is inscribed with, the Word of God. She keeps her silence that he might resonate the more plainly within her.Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis Meditations Sayings By Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis: The Virgin Mary is called the [Greek words] (the "book of the Word of life")
Even though there are so many teachings, so many meditations, so many instructions, the basic point of it all is just to learn to be extremely honest and also wholehearted about what exists in your mind - thoughts, emotions bodily sensations, the whole thing that adds up to what we call "me" or "I".Pema Chodron Meditations Sayings By Pema Chodron: Even though there are so many teachings, so many meditations, so many instructions, the basic
Quietude is the hermit's humble tool. An intrepid person might attempt to wring out of him or herself a translucent state of creative consciousness by deliberately cutting oneself off from all outside stimuli. When the exterior world forms a wall of impenetrable silence, in our state of exile we can hear the unique cadence of the subtle mind's authentic ringtone.Kilroy J. Oldster Meditations Sayings By Kilroy J. Oldster: Quietude is the hermit's humble tool. An intrepid person might attempt to wring out of
