Meditation Quotes to Give You Peace

 

“Meditation is a process of lightening up, of trusting the basic goodness of what we have and who we are, and of realizing that any wisdom that exists, exists in what we already have.

The key is to wake up, to become more alert, more inquisitive and curious about ourselves.”
