It’s very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Meditation is the primary means used to transform the mind into its healthy condition, to lift the veil of inborn ignorance. Meditation is now being studied scientifically and has been shown to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, etc. While these things are important, I do not think they are the main point. What meditation really provides is a way of overcoming the neurotic and destructive thoughts and habits that limit us all so greatly.

If you’re engaging in something that doesn’t feel right within your spirit it will not blossom. Love makes everything grow.
—Awakened Vibrations (via cosmofilius)
Accept— then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. This will miraculously transform your life.
—Eckhart Tolle (via cosmofilius)
