"Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering into the quiet that's already there buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day." ~Deepak Chopra

Commitment to Stillness: A Habit of Daily Meditation. ~ Farnoosh Brock, Feb 1, 2010

One of his students asked Buddha, "Are you the messiah?" "No", answered Buddha. "Then are you a healer?" "No", Buddha replied. "Then are you a teacher?" the student persisted. "No, I am not a teacher." "Then what are you?" asked the student, exasperated. "I am awake", Buddha replied.

Have a clear conscience "And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men"(Acts 24:16). "Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully" (Psalms 24:3-4).If we don't have a clear conscience, when we get still, the issues of our conscience will arise to the surface and keep us from hearing from God.
