Quotes about Meditation

by Jo-Ann Downey

in Mental Clarity & Calmness

“Meditation is the tongue of the soul and the language of our spirit.”  Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667)

“No great work has ever been produced except after a long interval of still and musing meditation.” Walter Bagehot (1826-1877)

“Peace comes from within.  Do not seek it without.”  Buddha (563-483 BC)

“I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind.”  Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944)

“The human mind cannot create anything.  It produces nothing until after having been fertilized by experience and meditation; its acquisitions are gems of its production.” George-Louis Leclerc de Buffon (1707-1788)

“One’s action ought to come out of achieved stillness; not to be mere rushing on.” D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930)

And definitely worth the read:

“We could say that meditation doesn’t have a reason or doesn’t have a purpose.  In this respect it’s unlike 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 in the immediate moment.”  Alan Watts (1915-1973)

My experience is that meditation takes you out of your 5 senses into your 6th sense of intuition and 7th sense of direct knowing.  For me, the more I meditate the more energy I have~calm energy.
