"Faith is the subject of the head, while devotion is the subject of the heart.
Meditation is the subject of the head and heart, and connects them both.
A mature intellect is devoted, a mature heart is full of knowledge, and meditation matures your intellect as well as your heart. The intellect puts more faith in the matter and the heart puts more faith in the abstract.
It is nearly impossible for you to be in total lack of faith or total lack of devotion. It is only a question of balance. Then all your life becomes a meditation – whether you look at the trees or the flowers or talk, you are in meditation!" - Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
