Yogis have always emphasized the importance of the gradual and careful preparation of the mind and body to receive and control the unlimited powers of the super-conscious state.
One master told his disciple, who had begged him to give him the experience of higher consciousness, “As a small lamp bulb would be shattered by excessive voltage, so your nerves are unready for the cosmic current. If I gave you the infinite ecstasy right now, you would burn as though every cell was on fire.”
If you look long and deeply enough at your mind, you will discover that it’s not what you thought it was.
All the great spiritual traditions say the truth will set you free.
The truth is that your mind is fundamentally open and free of limitations.
The freedom you experience in meditation results from simply being able to see clearly the ongoing game of fixating on your experience— and then realizing that you actually don’t have to participate any longer.
