“Christ is the perfect embodiment of the Spirit of God. He is the Son of God, the miracle worker, the overcomer, the way maker, and our brother. As fellow children of God, our task is to learn more about His character and to become more like Him.”
Benjamin W. Decker, Meditations on Christ: A 5-Minute Guided Journal for Christians

“Count on your beginner's mind to help you through any times when you might feel resistant or self-conscious about your practice.”
Benjamin W. Decker, Practical Meditation for Beginners: 10 Days to a Happier, Calmer You

“Every time the mind wanders away from the awareness of the breath, notice that it has wandered and bring your awareness back to the breath. This can be likened to a rep in the gym—every time you bring your mind back, you are building your "muscle" of attention.”
Benjamin W. Decker, Practical Meditation for Beginners: 10 Days to a Happier, Calmer You

“Time and time again, technology, along with advances in neuroscience and even genetics, seems to be validating things our ancestors knew all along by revealing exactly what happens physiologically during meditation and how regular practice can improve our bodies and minds.”
Benjamin W Decker

“Through clear instruction and regular practice, meditation will help you experience a deeper connection to your senses, your body, your emotions, and the boundless frontier of your thinking mind.”
Benjamin W Decker

“A beginner’s mind allows you to remain flexible and open, even as you encounter new things that may seem strange or even uncomfortable at first.”
Benjamin W. Decker, Practical Meditation for Beginners: 10 Days to a Happier, Calmer You

“A beginner’s mind allows you to remain flexible and open, even as you encounter new things that may seem strange or even uncomfortable at first. It also allows you to experience something mundane from an entirely new perspective, whereas an expert might approach something believing they “already get it.”

“Count on your beginner's mind to help you through any times when you might feel resistant or self-conscious about your practice.”
