THE POWER OF THE PRANAYAMA YOGA

It is by the power of Pranayama that the Yogis do the wonderful feats of levitation, walking on water, etc. This is not their goal–they only want liberation–but there is no liberation without awakening the Kundalini.

If the busy people of the world will practice Pranayama just a few months, they will be happily surprised to see its effect upon the body and mind. The body will become light and active. Idleness will vanish like darkness before the light.

Kundalini, The Mother of the Universe by Rishi Singh Gherwal


THE DOCTRINE OF RELATIVITY

If you adopt, as absolute, a standard of evenness which is so only relatively, your results will not be absolutely even. If you adopt, as absolute, a criterion of right which is so only relatively, your results will not be absolutely right.

Chuang Tzu


RETROSPECT

Yet though the imagination apprehended truly that this beauty was not mine, and hailed it by its heavenly name, for some years my heart was proud, for as the beauty sank into memory it seemed to become a personal possession, and I said “I imagined this” when I should humbly have said, “The curtain was a little lifted that I might see.”

George William Russell
