“The Way to do is to be.”
― Lao Tzu
The Master kept scraping a brick against the floor of the room where his disciple sat in meditation.
At first the disciple was content, taking this to be a test of his powers of concentration. But when the sound became unbearable he burst out, “What on earth are you doing? Can’t you see I am in meditation?”
“I’m polishing this brick to make a mirror out of it,” said the Master.
“You’re crazy! How can you make a mirror out of a brick?”
“No crazier than you! How can you make a mediator out of the self?”
~Anthony de Mello
“Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.”― Voltaire
“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.”― Thich Nhat Hanh
“The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms.”― Thich Nhat Hanh
“You asked me how to get out of the finite dimensions when I feel like it. I certainly don't use logic when I do it. Logic's the first thing you have to get rid of.”― J.D. Salinger
“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.”― Amit Ray
P.S: What would it take for me to be fully present in each moment of every day ????
What would it take for me to be in a meditative state throughout the day instead of trying to mediate for a few minutes each day???
What would it take for me to realize that I need to BE more before I DO more ?
