A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on contemplation and meditation

There is a principle which is the basis of things, which all speech aims to say, and all action to evolve, a simple, quiet, undescribed, undescribable presence, dwelling very peacefully in us, our rightful lord: we are not to do, but to let do; not to work, but to be worked upon.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

Meditative Thoughts for Autumn

“It is true that spring is fair, and it is a fine capacity of the human soul to perceive the beauty of the spring, the growing, sprouting, burgeoning life. But to be able to perceive also when the leaves fade and take on their fall coloring, when the animals creep away — to be able to feel how in the sensible which is dying away, the gleaming, shining, soul-spiritual element arises — to be able to perceive how with the yellowing of the leaves there is a descent of the springing and sprouting life, but how the sensible becomes yellow in order that the spiritual can live in the yellowing as such — to be able to perceive how in the falling of the leaves the ascent of the spirit takes place, how the spiritual is the counter-manifestation of the fading sense-perceptible; this should as a perceptive feeling for the spirit — ensoul the human being in autumn! Then he would prepare himself in the right way precisely for Christmastide.”

A Quote by Yogi Bhajan on mind, meditation, and yoga

Without meditation, and without a relationship to your mind, you fail to use the power of the mind. You fail to rely on your self. You complicate your approach. You do not use the beautiful designs given to you by birthright in this body, that link the effectiveness of body, mind, soul and you.

A Quote by David R. Hawkins on meditation, space, infinite, perception, and enlightenment

Q: But what about the classical spiritual teaching of "the space between two thoughts"?

A: It is a misunderstanding for there is no detectable space 'between' two thoughts through which one can glimpse the Infinite.  The supposed 'space' is not between the thoughts but prior to the thoughts.

Perception moves at the same rate as does mentalization; therefore, to expect that perception will discern a space between two thoughts is impossible because perception would have to then move faster than 1/10,000th of a second, that is, the perceptive faculty of the mind moves at the same rate as the content of the mind.  Thus, to try to witness the space between two thoughts is like a dog's trying to chase its own tail.  This is why many serious and committed meditators do not reach Enlightenment, even after many years of devoted meditation.  They are simply looking in the wrong place (calibrates as true).

A Quote by unknown on magic, blessing, meditation, wicca, zen, goddess, love, me, circle, and earth

Magical Prayer

From beneath me arises the energy of the Earth, my home and my foundation.

From above me pours down the light of the Sun and the enchanting Moon.

To my right hand flows the strength to control and direct, the power of magic.

To my left hand comes the skill to divine and to heal, the source of blessing.
