"Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely."
"However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?"
"I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act."

MEDITATION QUOTES FROM OSHO

"Meditation will bring you sensitivity, a great sense of belonging to the world. It is our world - the stars are ours, and we are not foreigners here. We are part of it, we are the heart of it."
"If you meditate, sooner or later you will come upon love. If you meditate deeply, sooner or later you will start feeling a tremendous love arising in you that you have never known before."

"You are never alone or helpless. The force that guides the stars guides you too."
Shrii Shrii Anandamurti
"Follow the truth of the way.
Reflect on it. Make it your own.
It will always sustain you.
Do not turn away what is given you,
Nor reach out for what is given to others,
Lest you disturb your quietness."
"Wake up, my love. You are walking asleep.
There's no safety in that! Remember what you are and let this knowing take you home to the Beloved with every breath. Hold tenderly who you are and let a deeper knowing colour the shape of your humanness. There is no where to go. What you are looking for is right here."
Oriah, Mountain Dreamer, Indian Elder
"Practice meditation regularly. Meditation leads to eternal bliss. Therefore meditate, meditate."
"Dear God, May every aspect of my being
be converted to Truth. May every cell fall into place
and serve a higher plan. I no longer wish to be who I was. I wish to be more."
"Giving love to all, feeling the love of God,
seeing His presence in everyone... that is the way to live in this world."
"As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world... as in being able to remake ourselves."
"Maintain your physical, emotional, and spiritual harmony with the universe by meditating every day. Inhale the precious breath of life. It is your connection to your Higher power."
But I have stilled and quieted my soul; Like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me."
"We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing, we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment."
"When we raise ourselves through meditation to what unites us with the spirit, we quicken something within us that is eternal and unlimited by birth and death. Once we have experienced this eternal part in us, we can no longer doubt its existence. Meditation is thus the way to knowing and beholding the eternal, indestructible, essential centre of our being."
"The more man meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be his world and the world at large."
"It is only by grounding our awareness in the living sensation of our bodies that the "I Am," our real presence, can awaken."
