Captivating Quotes on Mindfulness

Mindfulness Quote - Mother Teresa

Life can be overwhelming when we’re focused on what’s approaching or what’s behind us. We need to stay grounded in where we are now and fully embrace the present moments we are living in. Be present with the help of these quotes about living in a state of true mindfulness.

Even for a moment do not think that you are the body. Give yourself no name, no shape. In the darkness and the silence reality is found.

God is silence and is most easily reached in silence.

– Baha’ ad-din Naqshband

quote

A mind that has come to the stillness of wisdom shall know being, shall know what it is to love. Love is neither personal nor impersonal. Love is love, not to be defined or described by the mind as exclusive or inclusive. Love is its own eternity; it is the real, the supreme, the immeasurable.

– Aldous Huxley

Spiritual quote on silence by Thomas Merton

quote

I weave a silence onto my lips.
I weave a silence into my mind.
I weave a silence within my heart.
I close my ears to distractions.
I close my eyes to attractions.
I close my heart to temptations.

Calm me, O Lord, as you stilled the storm.
Still me, O Lord, keep me from harm.
Let all tumult within me cease.
Enfold me, Lord, in your peace.

– From the Gaelic tradition

quote

You are all searching for the silence of the mountain. But you’re looking for something outside. This silence is accessible to you right now, inside the center of your own being.

– Ramana Maharshi

quote

Watermelons and Zen students grow pretty much the same way.
Long periods of sitting till they ripen and grow all juicy inside,
but when you knock them on the head to see if they’re ready – sounds like nothing’s going on.

– Peter Levitt
