Praying or Meditating, or both?

praying and meditatingI’ve often received the question “is meditating the same as praying?”.   When I came across this quote, it made the answer very clear.

Some people choose to pray during meditation, but it does not mean you are praying if you are meditating.

Meditation is about listening. It’s about observing yourself and your mind.  There is a tremendous sense of calm that meditation can bring into your life, a connection with life that you might miss by being ‘too busy’.

This is a great blog that contains numerous quotes of clarity and inspiration:  awakenedvibrations.tumblr.com

Have a lovely day everyone.

    One of my favorite authors and speakers, John Bevere, says this about prayer…”Prayer is a dialogue not a monologue.” I believe that if you are want to ‘connect’ with the Creator of Universe, then you probably want to know what He has to say.
