How to Meditate Properly

mindfulness training how to meditate properly quotes kundalini woman

‘It is simply sitting silently, witnessing the thoughts, passing before you. Just witnessing, not interfering not even judging, because the moment you judge you have lost the pure witness. The moment you say “this is good, this is bad,” you have already jumped onto the thought process.'

osho meditation quotes'It takes a little time to create a gap between the witness and the mind. Once the gap is there, you are in for a great surprise, that you are not the mind, that you are the witness, a watcher.

And this process of watching is the very alchemy of real religion. Because as you become more and more deeply rooted in witnessing, thoughts start disappearing. You are, but the mind is utterly empty.

That’s the moment of enlightenment. That is the moment that you become for the first time an unconditioned, sane, really free human being.’

Osho Rajneesh about Meditation and Observing Thoughts

krishnamurti spiritual quotes about meditation‘You exist in time, but you belong to eternity. You are a penetration of eternity into the world of time. You are deathless, living in a body of death… You are not conscious of your consciousness. And that is the whole art of : Becoming conscious of consciousness itself.’

Krishnamurti about Meditation and Soul

‘We carry about us the burden of what thousands of people have said and the memories of all our misfortunes. To abandon all that is to be alone, and the  that is alone is not only innocent but young, not in time or age, but young, innocent, alive at whatever age, and only such a mind can see that which is truth and that which is not measurable by words.’

Krishnamurti about Mind that is Innocent and Pure

‘The soil in which the meditative mind can begin is the soil of everyday life, the strife, the pain, and the fleeting joy. It must begin there, and bring order, and from there move endlessly. But if you are concerned only with making order, then that very order will bring about its own limitation, and the mind will be its prisoner. In all this movement you must somehow begin from the other end, from the other shore, and not always be concerned with this shore or how to cross the river. You must take a plunge into the water, not knowing how to swim. And the beauty of meditation is that you never know where you are, where you are going, what the end is.’

Krishnamurti about Meditation and Life

Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure  without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.’

Voltaire about Meditation and Pure Consciousness

Sogyal Rinpoche Quotes meditation“Above all, be at ease, be as natural and spacious as possible. Slip quietly out of the noose of your habitual anxious self, release all grasping, and relax into your true nature. Think of your ordinary emotional, thought-ridden self as a block of ice or a slab of butter left out in the sun. If you are feeling hard and cold, let this aggression melt away in the sunlight of your meditation. Let peace work on you and enable you to gather your scattered mind into the  of Calm Abiding, and awaken in you the awareness and insight of Clear Seeing.’

Sogyal Rinpoche, Tibetan Book of Living and Dying about Meditation and True Nature

‘Devote it (the mind) in meditation to the task of freeing itself from illusion, and we will find that, with time, patience, discipline, and the right training, our mind will begin to unknot itself and know its essential bliss and clarity.’

Sogyal Rinpoche, Tibetan Book of Living and Dying about Meditation Training

Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there, buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day’

Deepak Chopra about What is Meditation

‘I meditate

So that I can inundate

My entire being

With the omnipotent power of peace.’

Sri Chimnoy, The Wings of Joy, Poem about Meditation and Power of Peace

‘It is only through meditation that we can get lasting , divine peace. If we meditate soulfully in the morning and receive peace for only one minute, that one minute of peace will permeate our whole day. And when we have a meditation of the highest order, then we really get abiding peace, light and delight. We need meditation because we want to grow in light and fulfil ourselves in light. If this is our aspiration, if this is our thirst, then meditation is the only way.’

Sri Chimnoy, The wisdom of Sri Chimnoy about Meditation and Divine Peace

‘If the mind falls asleep, awaken it. Then if it starts wandering, make it quiet. If you reach the state where there is neither sleep nor movement of mind, stay still in that, the natural (real) state.’

Ramana Maharshi about Meditation and Alertness

‘The only reality is the one we have inside us. What makes most people’s lives so artificial and unworthy is that they falsely regard outside images as reality and they never allow their own inner world to speak.’

Herman Hesse about Meditation and Inner Being

‘He wore his gown and walked along exactly like the other monks, but his face and his step, his peaceful downward glance, his peaceful downward-hanging hand, and every finger of his hand spoke of peace, spoke of completeness, sought nothing, imitated nothing, reflected a continuous quiet, an unfading light, an invulnerable peace.’

Herman Hesse about Meditation and State of Peace

Wisdom is nothing but a preparation of the soul, a capacity, a secret art of thinking, feeling and breathing thoughts of unity at every moment of life.’

Herman Hesse about Wisdom and Meditation

‘The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.

At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.

Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, about Meditation and Tao

aurobindo quotes about meditaitionDisciple: I feel a pull upward in the head while meditating.

Sri Aurobindo: It is the mind trying to ascend to the Higher consciousness.

Disciple: Sometimes I feel myself widening.

Sri Aurobindo: Yes, sometimes one feels the head opening or expanding. That is the sign of the mental being opening to the Power.

Disciple: Sometimes I see sky, ocean, or mountains and forests.

Sri Aurobindo: Yes. One sees many things i.e. by the inner sight. These are symbols of life or energy. Sky is the symbol of the mind. Mountain is the symbol of the being with its different planes and parts with the Divine as the summit. Forests are symbols of the vital.

Disciple: These visions are seen by many (quite common).

Sri Aurobindo: Oh yes, as the mind expands so also the heart expands and also the vital. If one sees those things outside oneself then that has only symbolic significance but if one feels the widening or coming of Light in himself then that increases the opening and the receptivity of the being.’

Sri Aurobindo about Visions in Meditation

Sri Aurobindo: First thing, you will become calm, quiet; secondly, there will be the feeling of strength, I mean the presence of a Force. Thirdly, the sense of the Infinite will be felt, you will feel yourself as the Infinite. Fourthly, something will be always there behind which will be able to govern the nature. Also the sense of Eternity and of yourself as Immortal. Even though the body dies you know you are immortal. Also there are many things more. For example, freedom from every thing even from the world. You realize the Transcendental and the Universal Consciousness.
