Meditation is to “stop doing something” – to take activity away. Meditation is a practice for the mind. A practice to quieten busy thoughts and distractions. Yoga is a meditation of the body. It is the physical practice that allows our body to be stable enough to meditate.
“At the end of the day, I can end up just totally wacky, because I’ve made mountains out of molehills. With meditation, I can keep them as molehills.” ~Ringo Starr
