Now that we have enjoyed the foods of the Thanksgiving feast, here's some food for thought (no calories!)
"Meditation is the key for opening the doors of mysteries. In that state man abstracts himself: in that state man withdraws himself from all outside objects; in that subjective mood he is immersed in the ocean of spiritual life and can unfold the secrets of things-in-themselves. To illustrate this, think of man as endowed with two kinds of sight; when the power of insight is being used the outward power of vision does not see."
"The faculty of meditation is the depository of crafts, arts and sciences. Exert yourselves, so that the gems of knowledge and wisdom may proceed from this ideal mine, and conduce to the tranquillity and union of the different nations of the world."
~The Baha'i Writings
Looking forward to seeing you for learning, discussion, and Meditation on Saturday, December 15th!
It is possible to reduce stress and be calm and at peace. By being present to the moment, we are able to see situations as they really are and learn to let go of the feelings of stress and anxiety when they arise. Come and join us as we practice meditation and mindfulness.
This group is connected with Insight Meditation of Cleveland. Please see more details about our group, our schedule of meditations and retreats, and information about the meditation that we do at our website www.imcleveland.org.
