The Yoga Aphorisms.–Chapter III–IV
1. Dharana is holding the mind on to some particular object.
2–An unbroken flow of knowledge in that object is Dhyana.
3–When that, giving up all forms, reflects only the meaning, it is Samadhi.
4–(These) three (when practiced) in regard to one object is Samyama.
5–By the conquest of that comes light of knowledge
Kundalini, The Mother of the Universe by Rishi Singh Gherwal
THE HIDDEN SPRING
Life follows upon death. Death is the beginning of life. Who knows when the end is reached? The life of man results from convergence of the vital fluid. Its convergence is life; its dispersion, death. If, then, life and death are but consecutive states, what need have I to complain?
THE SLAVE OF THE LAMP
I could not lose what was my own; I need not seek, for what was my own would come to me; if any passed it was because they were no longer mine.
George William Russell
