Prayer is more than meditation. In meditation, the source of strength is one's self. When one prays, he goes to a source of strength greater than his own.
Madame de Stael

Joseph Smith, Jr.
Great amount of scientific research is there to show that health is better because transcendental meditation deals with consciousness, and consciousness is the basic value of all the physical expressions. The entire creation is the expression of consciousness.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
I'll take transformational change any way it comes. One way to look at meditation is as a kind of intrapsychic technology that's been developed over thousands of years by traditions that know a lot about the mind/body connection. To call what happens 'the placebo effect' is just to give a name to something we don't understand.
Meditation, especially for people who don't know very much about it and think it's this very hippy dippy thing, can really be powerful, terrifying even, as it lifts the rug up on your subconscious and the dust comes flying out.
The seated lotus postures are an amazing way to go into meditation, or simply just to take a moment to ground oneself.

Meditation has been a loyal friend to me. It has helped me write my books.

Meditation is the life of the soul: Action, the soul of meditation; and honor the reward of action.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
If you are doing mindfulness meditation, you are doing it with your ability to attend to the moment.
