Something a little different for this post, a quote from Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, the ‘Sage of Mumbai’. He often refers to Yoga, in a maybe slightly different way we use it at DippingBird. His book, ‘I am that’ is unique, a powerful and modern work on transcendence.
For a Westerner the right procedure is to adhere to the thought that he is the ground of all knowledge, the immutable and perennial awareness of all that happens to the senses and the mind. If he keeps it in mind all the time, aware and alert, he is bound to break the bounds of non-awareness and emerge into pure life, light and love. The idea “I am the witness only” will purify the body and the mind and open the eye of wisdom. Then man goes beyond illusion and his heart is free of all desires.
