Quotes on Meditation 

If you are able to internalise, and awaken and develop your inner awareness, everything in life becomes clearer and more meaningful. This is what happens in meditation.

Everything we need to know that will make a difference is already there inside waiting to be discovered. Meditation is the way of making that known to us.
You have to know what is going on in your inner world if you want to find the peace and harmony that everyone is looking for. That is the real purpose of meditation.
Meditation is a mystery not a puzzle. A puzzle can be solved methodically and systematically. But a mystery requires a different way of seeing, not to be searching for answers, but just be still enough for long enough to see yourself accurately, as you are.
A meditation teacher may appear to be teaching, but all he really does is remind you of the way back to what deep down you already know. That’s the principle behind meditation
