The Top Inspirational Quotes From The Book Wherever You Go, There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn

Jon Kabat-Zinn wrote a book on mindfulness called “Whereever you go, there you are”. This book covers meditation and proves you can heal your life through this valuable practice.

Below are some great quotes from the book. Enjoy.

“You might be tempted to avoid the messiness of daily living for the tranquility of stillness and peacefulness. This of course would be an attachment to stillness, and like any strong attachment, it leads to delusion. It arrests development and short-circuits the cultivation of wisdom.” 

― Jon Kabat-Zinn

“Meditation is the only intentional, systematic human activity which at bottom is about not trying to improve yourself or get anywhere else, but simply to realize where you already are.” 

― Jon Kabat-Zinn

“Mindfulness practice means that we commit fully in each moment to be present; inviting ourselves to interface with this moment in full awareness, with the intention to embody as best we can an orientation of calmness, mindfulness, and equanimity right here and right now.” 

― Jon Kabat-Zinn

“look at other people and ask yourself if you are really seeing them or just your thoughts about them…. Without knowing it, we are coloring everything, putting our spin on it all.” 

― Jon Kabat-Zinn

“Practice sharing the fullness of your being, your best self, your enthusiasm, your vitality, your spirit, your trust, your openness, above all, your presence. Share it with yourself, with your family, with the world.” 

― Jon Kabat-Zinn

“At the deepest level, there is no giver, no gift, and no recipient… only the universe rearranging itself.” 

― Jon Kabat-Zinn

“One practical way to do this is to look at other people and ask yourself if you are really seeing them or just your thoughts about them.” 

― Jon Kabat-Zinn

“To allow ourselves to be truly in touch with where we already are, no matter where that is, we have got to pause in our experience long enough to let the present moment sink in; long enough to actually feel the present moment, to see it in its fullness, to hold it in awareness and thereby come to know and understand it better.” ― Jon Kabat-Zinn
