Today's Quotes:   

"Sit up tall and focus on what you can hear, and focus on the objects you can see by becoming aware of your present reality...Evoke the picture of a mountain in your mind. Look at its beauty, its peaks, valleys, and vegetation. It’s starting to rain, then raining harder. A torrent of water hits the mountain, but it remains undisturbed. Now bring your body into the image. Your head is the mountain’s peak, your shoulders and arms its sides, your torso the middle, and your legs the firm base. Even though the rain of your life circumstances is hitting you, you remain peaceful like the mountain that remains stable in any weather. The mountain is unaffected by passing clouds, so you are not affected by passing emotions and thoughts..."
-Sacinananda Swami

"Though struck by torrents of water, the mountain does not shake but rather becomes beautiful, being washed of dirt.  Similarly, a devotee, afflicted by the pains caused by his body, mind or other entities, is not disturbed because his mind is absorbed in the Supreme Lord."
-Srila Thakura via The Mountain Meditation

"Be still like a mountain and flow like a great river."
-Lao Tzu

SONG: "Higher Than the Mountains" (I reside)
Slow down
And give your mind a rest
Calm down
And do your best
Become one in the eyes of love
Seeking god above
It's all inside, it's all inside

I'm higher than the mountains
Higher than the mountains
Ooh higher than the mountain
Slow down, down low
You make me high, oooo"
- Sam Garrett
