English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. meditate

    An individual considers, meditates, ponders, reflects, by himself; he weighs a matter in his own mind, and is sometimes said even to debate with himself. Consult and confer always imply two or more persons, as does debate, unless expressly limited as above. Confer suggests the interchange of counsel, advice, or information; consult indicates almost exclusively the receiving of it. A man confers with his associates about a new investment; he consults his physician about his health; he may confer with him on matters of general interest. He consults a dictionary, but does not confer with it. Deliberate, which can be applied to a single individual, is also the word for a great number, while consult is ordinarily limited to a few; a committee consults; an assembly deliberates. Deliberating always carries the idea of slowness; consulting is compatible with haste; we can speak of a hasty consultation, not of a hasty deliberation. Debate implies opposing views; deliberate, simply a gathering and balancing of all facts and reasons. We consider or deliberate with a view to action, while meditation may be quite purposeless.

    Synonyms:
    confer, consider, consult, debate, deliberate, ponder, reflect, weigh

    Preposition:
    We deliberate on or upon, also about or concerning a matter: the first two are preferable.

How to use meditate in a sentence?

  1. Martin Luther:

    At night always carry in your heart something from Holy Scriptures to bed with you, meditate upon it like a ruminant animal, and go softly to sleep; but this must not be too much, rather a little that may be well pondered and understood, that you may find a remnant of it in your mind when you rise in the morning.

  2. Joel S. Goldsmith:

    I am not certain of the exact wording or the book it is in, but the essence of the statement is, When you meditate you facilitate the growth of the entire world. I have searched the internet but have not found it. It is such a profound statement it deserves to be listed with his other quotations, and he even said it before RUPERT SHELDRAKE POSTULATED MORPHOGENETIC RESONANCE.

  3. Alfiee Breland-Noble:

    Try to work within your bandwidth, using things that are accessible, if Alfiee Breland-Noble're going to meditate, and it's like eight people in a two-bedroom home, maybe Alfiee Breland-Noble have to literally go into the bathroom and sit there for five minutes with Alfiee Breland-Noble headphones on.

  4. Swami Krishnananda:

    Just as, when we touch a live wire, the electric force infuses itself into our body, when we deeply meditate on God the power of the whole universe seeks entry into our personality.

  5. Lewis Thomas, The Medusa and the Snail (1979):

    We pass the word around; we ponder how the case is put by different people, we read the poetry; we meditate over the literature; we play the music; we change our minds; we reach an understanding. Society evolves this way, not by shouting each other down, but by the unique capacity of unique, individual human beings to comprehend each other.
