Mindfulness: The practice of being “here” | 43 Folders

Merlin Mann has several mindfulness related quotes on his 43folders site; here's one:

"From the Buddhist perspective, our ordinary waking state of consciousness is seen as being severely limited and limiting, resembling in many respects an extended dream rather than wakefulness. Meditation helps us wake up from this sleep of automaticity and unconsciousness, thereby making it possible for us to live our lives with access to the full spectrum of our conscious and unconscious possibilities."
