“Prayer is when you talk to God. Meditation is when God talks to you.” –MeditativeMind.org
“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.” –Baba Ram Doss
“The thing about meditation is: You become more and more you.” –David Lynch
“Meditate. Let the light of the heart engulf you.” –Gurumayi Chidvilasananda
There are many, many reasons to meditate… to quiet your mind, to focus it, to connect with your soul, to detach from your thoughts and emotions, to get clear on your intentions. They are all excellent reasons. One point: you do not need to silence your thoughts if you can learn to detach from them and return to your meditation. You can also use a meditation audio (guided or otherwise) if you remember the last point.
