A friend asked what I’d recommend for an introduction to meditation. Something that covered basic postures, breathing, and techniques. In looking through my library, I didn’t find anything that’s a good starting point, and it got me wondering. Any suggestions for books, videos, online resources to steer him in the right direction?
"The joy of life consists in the exercise of one’s energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal."
"I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me."
"Dreaming is what you do when your eyes are closed… living is what you do with that dream once you open your eyes!"
Truer words were never spoken.
"Tell me, and I’ll forget. Show me, and I’ll remember. Involve me, and I’ll learn."
"Who is not satisfied with himself will grow, who is not sure of his own correctness will learn many things."
