Let’s start enjoying these “spot on” meditation quotes:
"Meditation is one of the greatest arts in life, perhaps the greatest, and one cannot possibly learn it from anybody, that is the beauty of it. It has no technique and therefore no authority. When you learn about yourself, watch yourself, watch the way you walk, how you eat, what you say, the gossip, the hate, the jealousy - if you are aware of all that in yourself, without any choice, that is part of meditation.”
“The mind acts like an enemy for those who don’t control it”
“Wrong thoughts are inside us just because we identify ourselves with these thoughts. If we identify with something else, immediately they have to leave us.”
“When I dance, I dance, when I sleep, I sleep; yes, and when I walk in a beautiful orchard , if my thoughts drift too far off matters for some part of the time, for some other part I led them back again to the walk, the orchard, the sweetness of this solitude, to myself.”
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
“The Buddha said that all sentient beings possess Buddha nature. Because of that, we have this natural purity, peacefulness and power. We can rest the mind naturally because we are already in possession of these qualities. If one can rest the mind naturally, that’s the best meditation. Non-meditation is the supreme meditation.”
Lama Mingyur Rinpoche
"The mind has to be empty to see clearly."
“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.”
Baba Ram Dass
“Our greatest experiences are our quietest moments.”
"Be still and know."

“Teach me the art of everyday stillness, in which I can absorb the beauty of everyday things: clouds, trees a snatch of music…”
“The miracle comes quietly into the mind that stops an instant and is still.”

“The quiet mind is richer than a crown.…Such sweet content, such minds, such sleep, such bliss beggars enjoy when princes oft do miss.”
“Imagine that your mind is like a calm, clear lake or a vast empty sky: Ripples appear on the surface of the lake and clouds pass across the sky, but they soon disappear without altering the natural stillness.”
“My greatest wealth is the deep stillness in which I strive and grow and win what the world cannot take from me with fire or sword”
Johan Wolfgang Von Goethe
“To a mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.”
“Over all the mountain tops is peace. In all treetops you perceive scarcely a breath. The little birds in the forest are silent. Wait then; soon, you too, will have peace.”
Johan Wolfgang Von Goethe
“Deep in the soul, below pain, below all the distraction of life, is a silence vast and grand – an infinite ocean of calm, which nothing can disturb; Nature’s own exceeding peace, which “passes understanding”. That which we seek with passionate longing, here and there, upward and outward; we find at last within ourselves.”
C.M.C. quoted by R.M. Bucke
