Swami Paramahansa Yogananda
To meditate a short time with depth is better than to meditate for long hours with the mind running wild. In the beginning, therefore, don’t force yourself to sit for a long time. Strive for shorter, but deeper, meditations. Then gradually, as you become accustomed to going deep, lengthen the time you sit in meditation.
Swami Permahansa Yogananda
“Go inward to the empty space between the thoughts and you shall find your Source.”
–Dr. Bernard Alvarez
“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”
“Make an attempt to spend some time each day in a state of meditation, wherein you let go of all ideas about time, space, and linear directionality. Just allow yourself to be … Imagine yourself without a body or any possessions or attachments—in this way you’ll begin to emulate the world of Spirit. It’s out of this nondirectionality, with no backward or forward, up or down, or north or south, that you’ll brush right up against inspiration.”
–Wayne Dyer “Inspiration”
“Take the time to meditate each morning on the good you will do for others during your day”
–Robin S. Sharma
“Start with meditation, and things will go on growing in you — silence, serenity, blissfulness, sensitivity. And whatever comes out of meditation, try to bring it out in life. Share it, because everything shared grows fast.”
In your Silence God’s Silence Ceases!
“God’s Voice is silence. Only when your thoughts cease can one hear the voice of God communicating through the silence of intuition. That is God’s means of expression. In your silence God’s silence ceases.”
– Permahansa Yogananda
