The Virgin Mary is called the [Greek words] (the "book of the Word of life") by the Greek Church. The book of the Gospel, the book of Christ's origins and life, can be written and proclaimed because God has first written his living Word in the living book of the Virgin's being, which she has offered to her Lord in all its purity and humility—the whiteness of a chaste, empty page. If the name of Mary does not often appear in the pages of the Gospel as evident participant in the action, it is because she is the human ground of humility and obedience upon which every letter of Christ's life is written. She is the Theotokos, too, in the sense that she is the book that bears, and is inscribed with, the Word of God. She keeps her silence that he might resonate the more plainly within her.

A thought weaves into another thought, seeking the other. The thought world has its-own Inner Life. A rose acts upon us through its symbolism, through its beauty, through our conscious & sub-conscious mind. Meditating we tap into the thought form of ‘rose adoration’.
Meditation is cultivating the potential to transcend your limited self, limited beliefs and limited existence. It is stepping into the exciting territory of limitlessness.
40. The gods either have power or they have not. If they have not, why pray to them? If they have, then instead of praying to be granted or spared such-and-such a thing, why not rather pray to be delivered from dreading it, or lusting for it, or grieving over it? Clearly, if they can help a man at all, they can help him in this way. You will say, perhaps, ‘But all that is something they have put in my own power.’ Then surely it were better to use your power and be a free man, than to hanker like a slave and a beggar for something that is not in your power. Besides, who told you the gods never lend their aid even towards things that do lie in our own power? Begin praying in this way, and you will see. Where another man prays ‘Grant that I may possess this woman,’ let your own prayer be, ‘Grant that I may not lust to possess her.’ Where he prays, ‘Grant me to be rid of such-and-such a one,’ you pray, ‘Take from me my desire to be rid of him.’ Where he begs, ‘Spare me the loss of my precious child,’ beg rather to be delivered from the terror of losing him. In short, give your petitions a turn in this direction, and see what comes.

Be aware of yourself without thinking or looking in the mirror
Whatever happens, happens such as you are either formed by nature able to bear it, or not able to bear it. If such as you are by nature form’d able to bear, bear it and fret not: But if such as you are not naturally able to bear, don’t fret; for when it has consum’d you, itself will perish. Remember, however, you are by nature form’d able to bear whatever it is in the power of your own opinion to make supportable or tolerable, according as you conceive it advantageous, or your duty, to do so.
All meditation starts with the root of intention.
When people injure you, ask yourself what good or harm they thought would come of it. If you understand that, you'll feel sympathy rather than outrage or anger. Your sense of good and evil may be the same as theirs, or near it, in which case you have to excuse them. Or your sense of good and evil may differ from theirs. In which case they're misguided and deserve your compassion. Is that so hard?

A prayer/meditation a day, keeps the Doctor away.
Sin is the reality of our lives and of this world. Sin is the dark side, the contrary power the destructive activity in the world. To triumph over sin would mean to build up our lives, the lives of others, of the family, of the community, of the Church, of the world, without ever making a step backward... The triumph over sin would mean that not a single justified desire would ever be frustrated, that not a single sigh would ever be ignored, that not a single tear would ever fall into the dark abyss of despair, and that not a single hope would ever be betrayed.

Be Good, but don't waste the time to proove it
What harm is done, or what is there strange if the man who has not been instructed does the acts of an uninstructed man? Consider wether you should not rather blame yourself because you did not expect such a man to err in such a way, for you had the means given you by your reason to suppose that it was likely that he would commit this error, and yet you forgotten and are amazed that he is erred. But most of all, when you blame a man as faithless or ungrateful, turn to yourself, for the fault is manifestly your own, either you did trust that a man who had such a disposition would keep his promise or when conferring your kindness, you did not confer it absolutely, nor yet in such a way as to have received from your very act all the profit.
There is no such thing as an ideal state of meditation. Awareness allows us to relate to our mental processes and to see the fundamental expression of mind as it is, including our thoughts.

Living on the verge is not about doing more, but about being more. It isn’t about achieving more; it’s about experiencing more. It’s not about being someone different, as there ’s no “better version of you” on the horizon. Everything you’re searching for is available to you in this moment. Everything you need is right here on the verge.
Meditation is blossoming of the prefrontal cortex to overcome the momentum of the nature. It is coming out of the loops of memories, patterns,fears, dreams and anger.
No matter what the tree, they all grow from one seed, which takes root and branches out. Meditation is like the lotus tree. Rich with many, many layers, leaves and petals. It blossoms to be a vibrant flower, but at its core, it is the same, basic principle, ~ the seed you plant.
All you need are these: certainty of judgment in the present moment; action for the common good in the present moment; and an attitude of gratitude in the present moment for anything that comes your way.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Meditation is to leave the noise and to meet with the silence.
Live now, enjoy Life now! Love now, for this now is the precious moment that is creating our lives. Each now is unique -- it won’t come back in time. In it we leave a footprint, and within that impression are the actions we leave behind. Each step we take, we leave a mark. The path is created by the steps a person takes while walking it.
When you reach a calm and quiet meditative state, that is when you can hear the sound of silence.
Essentially prayer and meditation are one and the same thing.
One day you realise your old life was only an escape from an inner silence
Oricine a privit nisipul care curge într-o clepsidră. Viaţa unui om curge la fel, dar nu poate fi măsurată cu nici o clepsidră. Pentru fiecare om există o măsură unică şi ceea ce i se întâmplă unui om nu i se poate întâmpla altui om. Din păcate, acest mare şi sublim adevăr nu poate fi înţeles în întregime decât la bătrâneţe, când timpul este deja risipit, când nimic esenţial nu mai urmează să se întâmple. Atunci când unui om i se întâmplă multe şi când inima lui este încercată de neaşteptate schimbări, o singură zi poate fi mai lungă decât un an sau doi de viaţă simplă şi monotonă.
Men seek for seclusion in the wilderness, by the seashore, or in the mountains - a dream you have cherished only too fondly yourself. But such fancies are wholly unworthy of a philosopher, since at any moment you choose you can retire within yourself. Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul; above all, he who possesses resources in himself, which he need only contemplate to secure immediate ease of mind - the ease that is but another word for a well-ordered spirit. Avail yourself often, then, of this retirement, and so continually renew yourself.
The greatest luxury of life is peaceful breathing because it repairs the wounds of the cosmic soul.
The best time to meditate, when the doctor is tongue tied.
