“The great state of yoga is experienced in that mind which has ceased to identify itself with its fluctuating waves of perception. When this happens, the seer is revealed resting in its own essential nature and one realizes the true self.”

“Develop a mind that is vast like the water, where experiences both pleasant and unpleasant can appear and disappear without conflict, struggle, or harm. Rest in a mind like vast water.”
