THE POWER OF DHARANA, DHIYANA, AND SAMYAMA YOGA
Mastery of mind and of will, What is will? Yogis know will is power. It can do anything for you and will set you free. The Master said: “By will man may become a Deva (like God), or the opposite.” The Bible says: “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” The difference between a human being and the Divine: man desires the God will, His will works. As long as man desires, yet doubts his power, the doubt is the killer.

THE IDENTITY OF CONTRARIES
The knowledge of the men of old had a limit. It extended back to a period when matter did not exist. That was the extreme point to which their knowledge reached. The second period was that of matter, but of matter unconditioned. The third epoch saw matter conditioned, but contraries were still unknown. When these appeared, Tao began to decline. And with the decline of Tao, individual bias arose.
THE EARTH BREATH
In those black hours the universe, a gigantic presence, seemed at war with me. I was condemned, I thought, to be this speck of minute life because of some sin committed in remote ages, I and those with me. We were all lost children of the stars.
George William Russell
