"I have always found it very easy to connect with people, but now through the impact of meditation I am more able to give them their space."
"So, it's important to regularly give energy to our center through some meditative technique, in order to stay connected and aware in daily life – that's the key for me."
"I know if I didn't do this meditation regularly I would be a lot more crazy! By that I mean: when I am stressed, I can't breathe properly; there is so much to do that feels important. I feel I am not good enough as I am, that I can't be what others want me to be.
"Using even one of the many techniques above can change how you experience everyday life. I know that I could not continue to survive – in any meaningful sense of the word – in the world without meditation as my foundation."
"I call my work 'Objective Art' jewelry, and people ask, 'What do you mean by that?'
"Certainly, being a meditator enables me to see the potential and beauty in nature and then to translate those elements into an object that resonates with meditativeness – with space and silence."
"Simply asking myself: 'What am I feeling and where am I feeling that in my body?' can be grounding and stabilizing. When I make a decision from meditative equipoise I have a better chance of a positive result."
"Probably the most important thing I've learned from Osho is that happiness is a natural state and misery requires work."
"One begins to enjoy the sober consciousness of waking bliss as one's 'default' state and the challenges and vicissitudes of life are viewed more and more as exhilerating opportunities to further the continuing unfoldment of one's mysterious essential nature."
"The whole thing is about meditation, not
decoration. Art is my meditation because it
takes me to a still point."
"I know meditation has an impact on the collective unconscious of the clinic. We've been doing it for three years now and it feels like one of the most intelligent things the medical director has asked everybody to do."
