Inner Calm

“Peaceful Cottage” | Anthony Satori

“To meditate means to go home to yourself. Then you know how to take care of the things that are happening inside you, and you know how to take care of the things that happen around you.”

— Thich Nhat Hanh

Benevolent Light

“Benevolent Light”  |  Anthony Satori

Every day, every moment, the universe is patiently waiting for us to pull softly on the strings of the blinds and let its light flow in.  Take a deep breath, calm your thoughts, and center your spirit.  And then mindfully take action toward something good.  Take action toward love, hope, kindness.  Take action toward health, joy, deeper understanding.  Even the smallest such act, done with a genuine heart, is an invitation for the universe to immerse us in its benevolent light.

“Sincere Longing”  |  Anthony Satori

“Only the wise know just where predestination ends and free will begins.  Meanwhile, you must keep on doing your best, according to your own clearest understanding.  You must long for freedom as the drowning man longs for air.  Without sincere longing, you will never find God.”

— Paramahansa Yogananda

Eternal Song of the Divine (Om)

“Om”  |  Anthony Satori

“Om is not just a sound or vibration.  It is not just a symbol.  It is the entire cosmos, whatever we can see, touch, hear and feel.  Moreover, it is all that is within our perception and all that is beyond our perception.  It is the core of our very existence.  If you think of Om only as a sound, a technique or a symbol of the Divine, you will miss it altogether.  Om is the mysterious cosmic energy that is the substratum of all the things and all the beings of the entire universe.  It is the eternal song of the Divine.  It is continuously resounding in silence on the background of everything that exists.”

— Amit Ray


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone!  May we all continue to find deeper and more resonant harmony with the eternal song of the Divine.

“I am not sure exactly what Heaven will be like, but I know that when it comes time for God to judge us, He will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’  Rather, He will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?'”

— Mother Teresa

“Calm”  |  Anthony Satori

“The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful.  If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness.  But if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even in the very best conditions.”

— Kelsang Gyatso
