Calm the mind
"All man's miseries derive from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone."
-- Blaise Pascal
"Meditation helps me feel the shape, the texture of my inner life. Here, in the quiet, I can begin to taste what Buddhists would call my true nature, what Jews call the still, small voice, what Christians call the holy spirit."
-- Wayne Muller
"In a world filled with noise, we need to quiet ourselves to hear God’s voice."
