A Quote by Saint Isaac on god, christianity, silence, hearts, death, purity, cleansing, thoughts, virtues, and peace

Let us love silence till the world is made to die in our hearts.  Let us always remember death, and in this thought draw near to God in our heart - and the pleasures of this world will have our scorn.

Saint Isaac

A Quote by John Daido Loori on negation and silence

Words and ideas are a description of reality, silence is a negation of reality. What is the reality itself?

A Quote by John Muir on silence, loneliness, alone, travel, wilderness, nature, and earth

Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter.

A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, spirituality, health, forgiveness, silence, meditation, enlightenment, awareness, truth, and freedom

Just as we care for our bodies with good food and rest, so we must also care for our spiritual selves, that part of us that is connected to God. If we are spiritually ill, our bodies and minds also become sick. This is why regular prayer and times of silent contemplation are necessary parts of our daily lives. Periodically, we must also take extra measures of self-examination and learning, that we might be ever-perfected in the grace of the infinite and perfect God.

Search your hearts and minds for the spiritual wounds of unforgiveness and fear, which are atheistic and unchristian, and repent of them so that you might be healed by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Your Father in Christ,

Bishop Joseph

A Quote by Osho on meditation, contemplation, thinking, silence, and thoughts

Meditation is not contemplation because it is not thinking at all – consistent, inconsistent, crazy, sane. It is not thinking at all; it is witnessing. It is just sitting silently deep within yourself, looking at whatsoever is happening inside and outside both. Outside there is traffic noise, inside there is also traffic noise -- the traffic in the head. So many thoughts – trucks and buses of thoughts and trains and airplanes of thoughts, rushing in every direction. But you are simply sitting aloof, unconcerned, watching everything with no evaluation.

A Quote by Osho on beauty, meditation, silence, and thoughts

Thoughts can create such a barrier that even if you are standing before a beautiful flower, you will not be able to see it. Your eyes are covered with layers of thought. To experience the beauty of the flower you have to be in a state of meditation, not in a state of mentation. You have to be silent, utterly silent, not even a flicker of thought – and the beauty explodes, reaches to you from all directions. You are drowned in the beauty of a sunrise, of a starry night, of beautiful trees.
