“Here is, in truth, the whole secret of Yoga, the science of
the soul. The active turnings, the strident vibrations, of
selfishness, lust, and hate are to be stilled by meditation, by
letting heart and mind dwell in spiritual life, by lifting up the
heart to the strong, silent life above, which rests in the
stillness of eternal love, and needs no harsh vibration to convince
it of true being.” ~ Patanjali
