Meditation Quotes – Religion is a realization not talk

Meditation Benefits - Swami Vivekananda

Religion is a realization, not talk, not doctrines, nor theories, however beautiful all these may be. Religion is being and becoming, not hearing and acknowledging. It is not an intellectual assent; but the transformation of one’s whole life.

Meditation Quotes: How does seeing the difference permit unity

Meditation Quotes Svami Prajnanpad

How does seeing the difference permit unity? Quite simply, because physically speaking there cannot be unity, since the physical plane consists of shapes, and all shapes are different. Unity only exists in the heart. It is a feeling: love. And in love the self disappears: only the other remains.

Meditation Quotes: Do not believe what you have heard

Meditation Quotes Buddha

Do not believe what you have heard.   

Do not believe in tradition because it is handed down many generations.

Do not believe in anything that has been spoken many times.

Do not believe because the written statements come from some old sage.

Do not believe in conjecture.

Do not believe in authority or teachers or elders.

But after careful observation and analysis, when it agrees with reason and it will benefit one and all, then accept it and live by it.

Meditation Quotes John Donne

Meditation Quotes John Donne

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or thine own were; any mans’ death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls foe thee.

~ John Donne ~  

John Donne was an English poet and is noted as the first of the metaphysical poets.
