Updated 3/10/2012 9:08 am @ Union City, California – Randomly came across these great quotes today that I wanted to share. They are all excellent but for me the one that stood out the most below is by Diana Robinson. It explains why meditation is important regardless of your beliefs. To further elaborate, I don’t think it has to be meditation itself. If you have a way to calm and clear your mind, you will be able to listen to God (or in other words, your higher self!!)… Generally speaking I don’t like to use the phrase God at all because through out history it has caused so many problems. Our own higher self is what I like to call it.

“Prayer is when you talk to God; meditation is when you listen to God.” – Diana Robinson
“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of your being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.” – Tao Te Ching: 67 By Lao Tzi
“I have come to realize that people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” – Abraham Lincoln
