The Divine Art Of Meditation - Meditation Quotes

~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~ Buddha

~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~ Sri Chinmoy

~Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity~ Voltaire

~No great work has ever been produced except after a long interval of still and musing meditation~ Walter Bagehot

~We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment~ Alan Watts

Hello Dexter!

I came to visit your blog, and I enjoyed the recent articles. And yes, if everyone knew the real benefits of meditation, everyone would practice.

And it's been proven by science these benefits. Of course meditation is still a habit in the coming decades, performed by all.
I also want to say that I loved the new look of your blog.

Peace and blessings to you my friend,

Lucy

ps: sorry for the mistakes in English rsrsr

Hi Lucy. I agree. The benefits of meditating are many. It gives us a chance to just "be". We need to take time to separate ourselves from the background noise of daily life that can distract us from our goals and desires. Thank for stopping by Lucy. Blessings!
