I go to an Institute class every Tuesday. The teacher talked to us recently about the importance of meditation. I really need more of this in my life. It is so hard when you are a full time mom but it is possible. I liked these quotes and thought I'd share them:
"Meditation is the language of the soul. Meditation is a form of prayer.... It is a private devotion or spiritual exercise... Meditation is one of the most secret, most sacred doors through which we pass into the presence of the Lord." (David O. McKay "Consciousness of God: Supreme Goal of Life," Improvement Era, June 1967, pp. 80-82)
"Strive in your homes, and teach others, to take some time of each day to have a quiet hour, meditation. Let there be study of the scriptures at least thirty minutes of each day. At an early morning hour, or at late night, as best suits your schedule, allow yourself an hour of prayerful mediation where you can tune in with God and discuss with Him problems that are too much for human understanding, too great for human strength." (The Teachings of Harold B. Lee, 152)
