Our life is constantly changing. What took place a second ago is already in the past and we have no way of knowing what may happen a second from now. Meditation practice helps me to stay in focus, to be in the moment and to be relaxed with the things as they come.
Here is a selection of some of my favorite quotes on meditation. Enjoy!
“Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.”
“If one's life is simple, contentment has to come. Simplicity is extremely important for happiness. Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital, satisfaction with just enough food, clothing, and shelter to protect yourself from the elements. And finally, there is an intense delight in abandoning faulty states of mind and in cultivating helpful ones in meditation.”
“Mindful meditation has been discovered to foster the ability to inhibit those very quick emotional impulses.”
“Whatever forms of meditation you practice, the most important point is to apply mindfulness continuously, and make a sustained effort. It is unrealistic to expect results from meditation within a short period of time. What is required is continuous sustained effort.”
“In meditation we are continuously discovering who and what we are.”
~Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
