- “First, meditation should be of a negative nature. Think away everything. Analyze everything that comes in the mind by the sheer action of the will. Next, assert what we really are-existence, knowledge, and bliss-being, knowing, and loving. ” ⏤ Swami Vivekananda
- “Every particle of the world is a mirror. In each atom blazes forth the light of a thousand suns. Open the heart of a raindrop and you will find a hundred oceans. In a grain of sand lies the seed of a thousand beings. ” ⏤ Mahmud Shabistari
- “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.” ⏤ Carl Jung
- “In times of crisis, we often feel we don’t have the time or energy to practice, but those are precisely the times when the practice is most necessary. This is what we’ve been practicing for: the situations where the practice doesn’t come easily. When the winds of change reach hurricane force, our inner refuge of mindfulness, concentration, and discernment is the only thing that will keep us from getting blown away.” ⏤ Thanissaro Bhikkhu
