How to keep friends and keep the God space inside of you by Maya Angelou | Meditation Monday with Sarah at Mom On A Spiritual Journey

Maya Angelou was on SuperSoulSunday this week! Featured in this week’s Meditation Monday

The wonderful Maya Angelou appeared this week on SuperSoulSunday.

I enjoyed every minute of the two shows and will be watching both again soon!  (Have them recorded on my DVR).

Here’s a wonderful clip from one of the shows…just to give you a taste of the deep wisdom Maya Angelou shares with the world.

Thought for Meditation Monday – the Best Advice Dr. Maya Angelou Has Ever Given—and Received

Dr. Maya Angelou’s wisdom has inspired countless people around the world, but what does she say is the best advice she’s ever given?  Plus, get the best advice Dr. Angelou ever received.


I loved this quote as a meditative thought…

I don’t know when I know enough, I know enough to live what I know.

From Sarah:  That IMHO is a MAJOR achievement, knowing enough, being wise enough and courageous enough to live what we know…

During this interview Oprah asked Maya…

What was the best piece of advice you were ever given?

Maya Angelou said…

I hope it was that which I gave to my son when he was growing up.  He said “I don’t have any friends, how can I get some friends?”

Although he was very young, I told him two things.  In order to get a friend you have to be ready to be a friendClick to tweet.

And also I told him, there’s a place in you that you must keep inviolate.  You must keep it pristine, clean, because nobody has the right to curse you or treat you badly, no-one, no Mother, no Father, nobody, because that may be the place you go to when you meet God.  You have to have a place where you say No when it’s No.   ‘Stop it!  Back up…you must not, No!  And that’s one I told you (Oprah) 25 years ago.

Oprah: And that has to be a place within you…Nothing tops having the place inside yourself that nobody else has a right to invade.

I hope you enjoyed these thoughts for Meditative Monday.   We are all en route!
