6 Quotes About Meditation That Will Change The Way You Think

Introduction.

Back in 2018, I wrote one of my first articles, and it was about the benefit of meditation. I believe the best medication is meditation, in my opinion.

Meditation is a mindful practice that teaches you about getting your focus on the silence without any interrupting. Meditation is an ancient practice still being practiced in this modern time.

I’ve known about meditation since I was 15 from the law of attraction community. Still, I got a better understanding of meditation when I was introduced to the book “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle.

I decided to write a topic based on meditation to make you understand it better and change the way you think about your mind. It’s lovely to see meditation become more popular throughout the years.

These are some of the quotes about meditation.

“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.” ~ Thich Nhat Hahn.

All you have to do is observe your thoughts, emotions, and feelings. You don’t have to react to them; just allow them to disappear.

Just like you don’t pay attention to any negativity in the outer world, you shouldn’t pay attention to any negativity in your mind, don’t feed it.

You have to remember that you’re not your thoughts because most people think they’re their thoughts, but it’s not. Your intrusive thoughts can make you spiral and say things that are not true to your story.

All you have to do is observe them all and allow them to dissolve themselves. Your thoughts come and go just like every customer come and go at the cashier.

I have thoughts that can be so negative that I have to stop and tell myself, “You know what, this is not true.” Then I ignore it completely.

“Your goal is not to battle with the mind, but to witness the mind.” ~ Swami Muktananda.

The more you fight against your mind, the worse you make it seem to be. You gain nothing from fighting against your mind. You only stress yourself out more before you know it.

The best way to understand yourself better is to be aware of your mind and how it works. You better know how you think and feel throughout the day.

Most people these days aren’t aware of their minds.

Be the observer to your thoughts, be aware of them without judgment or criticism because meditation is about being aware of your thoughts without reacting to them.

“When there are thoughts, it is distraction: when there are no thoughts, it is meditation.” ~ Ramana Maharshi.

Many things will distract your thoughts all the time. If you are constantly distracted, you will never relax.

Meditation is about being in the moment without any thoughts creeping in. You meditate by painting, jogging, playing an instrument, listening to calm music, writing, or reading books. There are many ways to meditate.

When your mind is quiet, you have found peace. Meditation is about being at peace with who you are, and you find that peace in your mind.

Meditation is about giving your mind space to relax for a moment.

“The heart of meditation is taking ourselves a little less seriously.” ~ Headspace.

Meditation shows us how chaotic our thoughts can be. We always think and assume the worst. You will laugh at yourself for assuming the worst of the worst and how life is meant to be fun.

Being in a meditative state of mind puts you in bliss. You feel happier in a calm state and realize how you waste your time overthinking about unnecessary things.

When you take yourself less seriously, you become happier.

If I don’t meditate, I become grumpy. When I meditate, I feel happier and optimistic that everything will work out for me in my life.

“The thing about meditation is: You become more and more you.” ~ David Lynch.

If you live a busy life, you will never know who you are.

Being constantly social can make you forget who you are, but if you’re with mindful people, they can make you become more.

Now don’t get me wrong, someone once told me that you learn more about yourself when you have a conversation with other people, and I found it to be true.

You have to be with the right mindful people who bring out the best in you and help you to understand yourself better. Spending time with good people is a meditation as well.

You have to choose your influencers wisely.

I personally feel more in touch with who I really am when I meditate.

How To Apply Meditation.

Find a quiet place where you are free of disturbance from people or sounds. You have to make sure no one is going to disturb you for a while.

Light up a candle or incense to make the environment cozier as you want it to be. Listen to relaxing music or don’t listen to music at all (if you prefer silence)

Be in a comfortable position that you like the most and take a deep breath until you feel completely calm, making your whole body relaxed.

Concentrate on hearing calm sounds around you and allow your thoughts to come and go without reacting to them. Focus only on silence.

Takeaways.

Try to go out for a walk before you head home to meditate. Getting movement and fresh air helps your mind become tired and makes your meditation more effective.

Remove any disturbance in your life, such as negative people and social media, that makes your life more stressed than it should be.

Work out for your physical health and meditate for your mental health.

A mental workout is as essential as a physical workout.

If you’re very busy in life, try to meditate for at least 5–10 minutes per day. If you have plenty of time, meditate as long as you want every day.

Allowing your thoughts to come and go without reaction is liberating if you struggle with feeling anxious and depressed in life.

Important reminder.

It may be difficult for you to do this if you’re new to mindfulness, but the more you do it, the easier it gets. Be kinder to yourself if your mind starts to spiral.

It’s all about practice and believing in yourself that you can meditate in silence. You have to allow the present moment to be as it is, as Eckhart Tolle expressed it.

You’re right either way if you think you can meditate or can’t meditate.

Simple Benefits of Meditation.

You become more self-aware.

You become more and more you.

You will sleep better without issues.

You become less stressed and anxious.

It’s free, and you can do it everywhere.
