    ~ Peter Alexander McWilliams
  • To me the greatest problem with humanity is that they don't know anything of meditation.
    ~ Osho

    ~ Jane Austen

    ~ Shamash Alidina

    ~ Paul Wilson
  • A good meditation, even when it is interrupted by occasional nodding, is much more beneficial than many outward religious exercises.
    ~ Johannes Tauler
  • It can feel as if the entire body has dropped away or has become transparent, as if its substance were in some way erased. It can feel as if there is nothing but breath flowing freely across all the boundaries of the body.
