“When you are with someone you love very much, you can talk and it is pleasant, but the reality is not in the conversation. It is simply in being together.

Meditation is the highest form of prayer. In it you are so close to God that you don’t need to say a thing. It’s just great to be together.”

Swami Chetananda
There is only this now. It does not come from anywhere; it is not going anywhere. It is not permanent, but it is not impermanent. Though moving, it is always still. When we try to catch it, it seems to run away, and yet it is always here and there is no escape from it. And when we turn around to find the self which knows this moment, we find that it has vanished like the past.
Alan Watts (via thecalminside)

The Real Point Of Meditation ~ Mingyur Rinpoche
http://bit.ly/1jgAmzX

The real point of meditation is to rest in bare awareness whether anything occurs or not. Whatever comes up for you, just be open and present to it, and let it go. And if nothing occurs, or if thoughts and so on vanish before you can notice them, just rest in that natural clarity.

Mingyur Rinpoche
