As easy as breathing…
“Suppose you heard about a pill that you could take once a day to reduce anxiety and increase your contentment… Would you take it?
Suppose, further, that the pill has a great variety of side effects, all of them good: increased self-esteem, empathy and trust; it even improves your memory.
Suppose, finally, that the pill is all natural, and costs nothing. Now, would you take it?
This pill exists… It’s called MEDITATION”
– Jonathan Haidt | The Happiness Hypothesis –

Making meditation as easy as breathing

Meditation is not a way of making the mind quiet.
It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there.
Buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person has every day.
– Chopra –
In the sweet territory of silence, we touch the mystery.
– Angeles Arrien –
Within each of us, there is a silence.
A silence as vast as the Universe.
And when we experience that silence,
we remember who we are.
