This week for Mindful Mondays are quotes on meditation.
Quiet the mind, and the soul will speak. – Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati
Meditation is listening to the Divine within. ― Edgar Cayce
“One hour’s meditation on the work of the Creator is better than seventy years of prayer.” ― Muhammad
Meditation is all about the pursuit of nothingness. It’s like the ultimate rest. It’s better than the best sleep you’ve ever had. It’s a quieting of the mind. It sharpens everything, especially your appreciation of your surroundings. It keeps life fresh. -Hugh Jackman
When there are thoughts, it is distraction: when there are no thoughts, it is meditation. – Ramana Maharshi
Just as you wouldn’t leave the house without taking a shower, you shouldn’t start the day without at least 10 minutes of sacred practice: prayer, meditation, inspirational reading. -Marianne Williamson
Meditation is to dive all the way within, beyond thought, to the source of thought and pure consciousness. It enlarges the container, every time you transcend. When you come out, you come out refreshed, filled with energy and enthusiasm for life. – David Lynch
Meditation makes the entire nervous system go into a field of coherence. – Deepak Chopra
