Can you explain how "Quaker" and "frog" are connected?
yes. In my mother tongue, the typical sound a frog produces is called "quaken" = to croak.
Now, the english 'Quacker is somehow near to german 'quaken', that's when my mind jumped there.
If you say only association within english allowed, ok, so it be :-).
"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as ‘concentration’, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps ‘unification’ is a better rendition, as samadhi means ‘to bring together’. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It’s a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience."
