People think meditation is a huge undertaking. Don't think of it like that.
Mindful meditation has been discovered to foster the ability to inhibit those very quick emotional impulses.
We can actually accelerate the process through meditation, through the ability to find stillness through loving actions, through compassion and sharing, through understanding the nature of the creative process in the universe and having a sense of connection to it. So, that's conscious evolution.
Meditation is the life of the soul: Action, the soul of meditation; and honor the reward of action.
The more intense the nature of a man, the more readily will he find meditation, and the more successfully will he practice it.
Transcendental meditation is like a car, a vehicle that allows you to go within. It's a mental technique.
Yoga introduced me to a style of meditation. The only meditation I would have done before would be in the writing of songs.
I thought when I started meditation that I was going to get real calm and peaceful and it's going to be over. It's not that way; it's so energetic. That's where all the energy and creativity is.
Meditation doesn't have to be complicated. What I do is about as simple as you can get. You could just count the beads, one, two, three, with your eyes closed or open, whatever makes you happy.
Reading is a form of prayer, a guided meditation that briefly makes us believe we're someone else, disrupting the delusion that we're permanent and at the center of the universe. Suddenly (we're saved!) other people are real again, and we're fond of them.
Now I meditate twice a day for half an hour. In meditation, I can let go of everything. I'm not Hugh Jackman. I'm not a dad. I'm not a husband. I'm just dipping into that powerful source that creates everything. I take a little bath in it.
Golf is a search for perfection, for balance. It's about meditation and concentration. You have to use hand and brain.
Remember what people used to say about meditation? Now everyone is doing it.
After doing a juice cleanse, I'm motivated to eat healthier and not emotionally. Cleansing is like my meditation. It makes me stop, focus and think about what I'm putting into my body. I'm making a commitment to my health and hitting the reset button.
Yoga is a great thing and meditation is also great to get connected to yourself more.
Writing is a very focused form of meditation. Just as good as sitting in a lotus position.
I write until the first draft is finished, and then I feel that I can get out. But, during the time of the writing of the first draft, I don't go out. I'm just locked away, writing. It's a time of meditation, of going into the story.
In Buddhism, we talk of meditation as an act of awakening, to be awake to the fact that the earth is in danger and living species are in danger.
Meditation is to get insight, to get understanding and compassion, and when you have them, you are compelled to act.
The best way to meditate is through meditation itself.
If you are doing mindfulness meditation, you are doing it with your ability to attend to the moment.
I do transcendental meditation, which is, I suppose, derived from Vedic or Ayurvedic principles, which is sort of Hindu principles.
I'm also good at meditation. It involves doing nothing and everything at the same time.
If every day you practice walking and sitting meditation and generate the energy of mindfulness and concentration and peace, you are a cell in the body of the new Buddha. This is not a dream but is possible today and tomorrow.
Meditation is not to avoid society; it is to look deep to have the kind of insight you need to take action. To think that it is just to sit down and enjoy the calm and peace, is wrong.
