Some people think that meditation takes time away from physical accomplishment. Taken to extremes, of course, that's true. Most people, however, find that meditation creates more time than it takes. --Peter McWilliams (in How Meditation May Change the Brain)

Meditation is to be aware of what is going on-in our bodies, in our feelings, in our minds, and in the world. Each day 40,000 children die of hunger. The superpowers now have more than 50,000 nuclear warheads, enough to destroy our planet many times. Yet the sunrise is beautiful, and the rose that bloomed this morning along the wall is a miracle. Life is both dreadful and wonderful. To practice meditation is to be in touch with both aspects. Please do not think we must be solemn in order to meditate. In fact, to meditate well, we have to smile a lot. --Thich Nhat Hanh (in Untitled)

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 (in Commuting to Inner Peace)

Meditation is inner service and service is outer meditation. --Dada Shambhushivananda (in Untitled)

We call the cultivating of our own mind to bring it to wakefulness meditation. The beauty of it is that we carry this garden with us, wherever we go, wherever we are, whenever we remember. --John Kabbat-Zinn (in Monks and Scientists)

A racing mind that reacts sensitively to little things indicates thinking that has lost its spiritual strength. Meditation restores that power. --Anonymous (in Not Enough Time? Try Doing Nothing)

The purpose of meditation is to awaken in us the skylife nature of mind, and to introduce us to that which we really are, our unchanging pure awareness that underlies the whole of life and death. --Sogyal Rinpoche (in Untitled)

Every child looses his innocence, becomes corrupted, and then searches for the lost paradise. Meditation is the royal method to pierce through the smoke screen of mind, to find integration again. --Khoji (in Untitled)

Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results, because there follows immediate peace. --Bhagavad Gita 12:12 (in Untitled)

Through meditation and by giving full attention to one thing at a time, we can learn to direct attention where we choose. --Eknath Easwaran (in Meditation Boosts Focus)

Meditation will bring you sensitivity, a great sense of belonging to the world. It is our world -- the stars are ours, and we are not foreigners here. We are part of it, we are the heart of it. --Osho (in Meditation Literally Saves a Life)

Every day it is all new, all fresh. I start again from scratch, leaving behind what happened yesterday. Every day life tests my meditation, my awareness, in one way or another ... and the tests are very simple ... they hide in the things I do every day, in the people I meet every day. --A. Bee (in Untitled)

Meditation is not a matter of trying to achieve ecstasy, spiritual bliss or tranquility, nor is it attempting to be a better person. It is simply the creation of a space in which we are able to expose and undo our neurotic games, our self deceptions, our hidden fears and hopes. --Chogyam Trungpa (in Untitled)

The experience of meditation is a metaphor for the revelation of enlightenment, and the revelation of enlightenment is the discovery of our inherent freedom from thought, feeling, and time. --Andrew Cohen (in Untitled)

Sound when stretched is music. Movement when stretched is dance. Mind when stretched is meditation. Life when stretched is celebration. --Ravishankar (in Untitled)

Sound when stretched is music. Movement when stretched is dance. Mind when stretched is meditation. Life when stretched is celebration. --Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (in Untitled)

What is meditation? Becoming aware of what you are doing, becoming aware of what is happening to you. --Osho (in Untitled)

Giving time doesn't necessarily take more "time"; rather it requires a shift in one's mindset. The simplest thing everyone can give is the gift of a commitment to a value -- practice meditation daily, work out three times a week, donate money to a charity every month, whatever it is. --Nipun Mehta (in Seven Questions on Giving Time)

The highest good is like water. Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive. It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao. In dwelling, be close to the land. In meditation, go deep in the heart. In dealing with others, be gentle and kind. In speech, be true. In ruling, be just. In daily life, be competent. In action, be aware of the time and the season. No fight: No blame. --Lao Tzu (in Untitled)
