Suresh's Meditation  - 
 
“Of course, walking alone on a country path, it is easier to maintain mindfulness. If there’s a friend by your side, not talking but also watching his breath, then you can continue to maintain mindfulness without difficulty. But if the friend at your side begins to talk, it becomes a little more difficult. If, in your mind, you think, “I wish this fellow would quit talking, so I could concentrate,” you have already lost your mindfulness. But if you think, instead, “If he wishes to talk, I will answer, but I will continue in mindfulness, aware of the fact that we are walking along this path together, aware of what we say, I can continue to watch my breath as well.” If you can give rise to that thought, you will be continuing in mindfulness. It is harder to practice in such situations than when you are alone, but if you continue to practice nonetheless, you will develop the ability to maintain much greater concentration.”

FREEDOM...
It's got to happen inside first.

“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.”
Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first.”
Jim Morrison
....................
“I am larger, better than I thought; I did not know I held so much goodness.

All seems beautiful to me.

Whoever denies me, it shall not trouble me;
Whoever accepts me, he or she shall be blessed, and shall bless me.”
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
............................................................
Ben Webster - Hymn To Freedom

“Like the elephant, we are unconscious of our own strength. When it comes to understanding the power we have to make a difference in our own lives, we might as well be asleep. If you want to make your dreams come true, wake up. Wake up to your own strength. Wake up to the role you play in your own destiny. Wake up to the power you have to choose what you think, do, and say.”
Keith Ellis

"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."
Richard Buckminster Fuller

“I can focus all my energy on trying to destroy the old world, or I can spend my energy on trying to create a better one.”
Sevan Apollo Poetry, Good Men Project

The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were.”
John F. Kennedy

“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.”
Helen Keller

“You save the world one man at a time; anything else is grandiose romanticism or politics.”
Charles Bukowski

“The most important step of all is the first step. Start something! What if that idea you have in the back of your head is a really good one, one that might end up helping tens of thousands of people? You owe it to the world to act. Or maybe it will help only a few people: The same advice applies. If you don’t do it, you are missing out on something big, and so are the people who could have been helped.”
Blake Mycoskie (Founder of TOMS)
................................................................

Everywhere is freaks and hairies
Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity
Tax the rich, feed the poor
Till there are no rich no more?

I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you

Population keeps on breeding
Nation bleeding, still more feeding economy
Life is funny, skies are sunny
Bees make honey, who needs money, Monopoly

I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you

World pollution, there's no solution
Institution, electrocution
Just black and white, rich or poor
Them and us, stop the war

I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you

.............................................................
But “If you think we can't change the world, it just means you're not one of those who will.”
Jacque Fresco

Depression doesn’t discriminate. Everyone is a potential target for it, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, geographical location, or income. We are all subject to its grasp, and remember, it’s not the same thing as sadness. Sadness is when you feel down because things aren’t going your way. Depression is when you feel down even when …

Suresh's Meditation  - 
 
“Meditation is to be aware of every thought and of every feeling, never to say it is right or wrong but just to watch it and move with it. In that watching you begin to understand the whole movement of thought and feeling. And out of this awareness comes silence. Silence put together by thought is stagnation, is dead, but the silence that comes when thought has understood its own beginning, the nature of itself, understood how all thought is never free but always old - this silence is meditation in which the meditator is entirely absent, for the mind has emptied itself of the past.”
― Jiddu Krishnamurti

BLISS IS OF CONSCIOUSNESS. ~Atman Nityananda

Bliss is of Consciousness (Atman or Self), but it is experienced by a pure mind.

He who does not control his mind, he is controlled by his mind and suffers.

A sincere, diligent, long time practice is need in order to conquer our mind. In this work it is ...

Suresh's Meditation  - 
 
Aloneness is our very Nature, but we are Not Aware of it. Because we are Not Aware of it, we remain Strangers to Ourselves, and instead of Seeing our Aloneness as a tremendous Beauty and Bliss, Silence and Peace, At-Easeness with Existence, we Misunderstand it as Loneliness.

~ Osho

Meditative Quotes  - 
 
Slipping into silence after the ripples of the mind.

Diving into the thick, warm ocean of awareness.
There is no i or me or we.
There are no capital letters or sirs or titles.
There are no detachments or pretensions or illusions.
There are no separations or deities or gods.
There is no importance of one thing over another.
There is just being.

In this inner space of awareness so colossal and vast.
There is silence.
There is watching.
There is feeling.
There is the hum of a satisfied soul.
There is a wondrous, eternal simplicity here.
There is love.

Thank you - We are fifty thousand members today

"Sangam Sharanam Gacchami"
I take refuge in Community

Meditation community is a family of fellow seekers, not of fellow believers. When you believe, the community becomes a sect. When you seek, then it is a community. A community is an alive phenomenon of those who are all seeking together and helping each other.

Over the last few years we have grown to be the largest resource of Meditation news/articles/quotes. Without limiting to any view or sect or religion, we have always celebrated life in all its colors. With more than 25000 articles/quotes, we are a conscious catalysts.

It's amazing to see the inner evolution taking place across the globe. In spite of everything going around us, I have tremendous hope and faith about our future. This community has comments, re-shares, postings from more than 100 countries across the world. It is so much heartening to see members celebrating and embracing all beliefs, religions and celebrating consciousness. We want to contribute and we want to light a fire of awareness across the globe.

The aim of this community is to "ignite a sparkle of awareness" inside you. If even for a moment, If you have experienced Love, Joy, happiness, awareness while browsing this community, I consider the work and effort has been worthwhile.

I would like to thank you all for your unconditional love and support.

I would like to leave you with "Namaste" and a quote of Mevlana Rumi which is apt for this community

“Come, come, whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving.
It doesn't matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
come,
even if you have broken your vows a thousand times.
Come, yet again , come , come.”

Namaste

~ Love..............Suresh Gundappa

"The definition of mindfulness is a state of being aware of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and environment at the present. It is a state of observing and contemplating what we are experiencing at the moment. By being more aware and focusing our awareness to the present, we become more alive and conscious". --Chriss Allen
