Meditate Like Oprah & Maya Angelou - Become a Quiet Vessel

Today’s Quotes:  “When we plug the battery into the charger, it doesn’t chatter away about how much it needs charging… it simply and quietly accepts the inflow of energy. And when we pray, Jesus is telling us, we should get into the depths of our being, and shut out the concerns of the world, and “pray to the Father in secret”. As we grow in understanding of the Truth of our relationship with God, as we begin to see ourselves in the light of our divinity, prayer becomes an experience in the silent.  We put the words of entreaty, of supplication, even of adoration behind us.  Our heart speaks in the language of the soul.  We praise God through our feeling of gratitude.  We worship through our spirit of reverence.  We ask for help through our receptive mind and heart. We affirm the Truth of being by meditating quietly upon it.” -Eric Butterworth, excerpt from ‘Discover the Power Within You: A Guide to the Unexplored Depths Within’ “A true Christian is a true Hindu, and a true Hindu is a true Christian.” – Swami Vivekananda Bonus Quote: “Along this path of knowledge, I find that prayer and meditation are elemental. Guidance comes from those practices. Sometimes in meditation one really tries to think of nothing. I do, anyway. I try not to have any focus or use any focus to get away from everything. I try to make myself a quiet vessel, a quiet pool where ideas can rise.” – Maya Angelou Today’s Practice: Today, I want you to prioritize the Silence. Make yourself the ‘quiet vessel’ and ‘get out of your own way’, so that you may hear the feeling of Love and unfold Its unique path for you.
