Meditation is not to escape from society, but to come
back to ourselves and see what is going on. Once there is
seeing, there must be acting. With mindfulness, we know
what to do and what not to do to help.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness
or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without
thinking, merging finitude in infinity. ~Sivananda
Meditation is in truth higher than thought. The earth seems to rest in
silent meditation; and the waters and the mountains and the sky and
the heavens seem all to be in meditation. Whenever a man attains
greatness on this earth he has his reward according to his meditation.
