THE POWER OF DHARANA, DHIYANA, AND SAMYAMA YOGA
Make up your mind. Stick with the will, that you can do a thing, and it is then already half done. But when you doubt in yourself–that you can not, it will never be done. You develop the will and become like Brahma.
The Yogis open the inner eye by Dharana, and by opening the inner eye nature becomes like an open book. There is nothing hidden from them. They see their inner body as an ordinary man sees the outer body.
Kundalini, The Mother of the Universe by Rishi Singh Gherwal
HOW do I know that love of life is not a delusion after all? How do I know but that he who dreads to die is as a child who has lost the way and cannot find his home?
THE EARTH BREATH
Everything that suggested our high original being, a shaft of glory from the far fire in the heavens spearing the gloom of the office, the blue twilight deepening through the panes until it was rich with starry dust, the sunny clouds careering high over the city, these things would stir pangs of painful remembrance and my eyes would suddenly grow blind and wet.
George William Russell
