Focus is the concentration of the mind
upon a designated object of inquiry.
Prolonged focus flows into
the unknown realms of meditation.
When the mind becomes fully withdrawn
into that which is Real,
and it becomes lost in the Real
to the point that the personality is forgotten,
samadhi is at hand.
When focus, meditation and samadhi
transforms into one single act of Consciousness,
the synthesis of meditative awareness is achieved.
As a result of this synthesis,
a Light within comes shining forth.
Like everything else,
the intensity of this Light
is to be developed step by step.
What must be kept in mind
is that focus, meditation and samadhi
are still within the category of meditating
with a seed or object in mind.
The next level of Consciousness
is that in which no seed is required at all.
Thus, the mind must become free
of its tendency to discriminate against
this and that as being this and that.
Usually, the mind acts in the following manner.
Something within its field of awareness
appears suddenly and this causes the mind to react
to what is in the process of appearing.
Then the mind is in need of being controlled.
Afterwards, the mind initially recognizes what
it has been doing in terms of reacting to the arising
of phenomena and then it realizes that the mind
tried to interact with the said phenomena
by way of placing another type of reaction
upon the initial mental reaction.
Finally, these types of reactions disappear
until there is one ongoing and uninterrupted stream of Consciousness.
Through cultivating an uninterrupted stream of Consciousness,
a steadiness of spiritual perceptions will take
the place of fragmented material perceptions.
When able to stop the mind from forming any type of thought,
the continuity of samadhi remains unbroken.
When samadhi is thus entirely one pointed in its nature,
every aspect of an object, whether it is its characteristics,
symbolism, or practical use in time and space,
are grasped and utilized for a higher purpose.
The triple nature and use of every form or object
leads to the revelation of that which it was in the past
and that which it will be in the future.
No longer does the mind confuse any
of the aspects of an object as being separate from one another.
Thus, the Sound or Essence of any and all objects
is intuitively understood from a spiritual perspective.
Knowledge of previous lives becomes an open sight
for those who can see thought images or visions of the soul.
The ability to read others' minds as if it were an open book
also becomes a secondary nature for the Perceiver.
Now, the process of meditation is powerful enough
to make what is invisible into the visible
and what is visible into the invisible.
Karma, whether belonging to the past or to the future,
is fully understood in relation to the individual.
This means that the Perceiver knows why
and for what reasons karma arises and disappears.
Meditating on the force of Light
will awaken that force throughout the entire body.
This, in turn, leads to being able to sense
what is remote or hidden away in the deepest ethers of space.
Fixing the mind on the Sun
catapults the Consciousness into the seven spheres or planets.
The Moon makes the meditator aware
of all lunar aspects throughout the Universe.
Focusing on the Pole Star
gives first hand insight into the patterns and orbits of every star.
The solar plexus, if investigated deeply enough,
enables the Perceiver to record on a continual basis
the overall health or condition of the body.
The throat center, in turn, suspends all thirst
and hunger if meditated upon properly and with enough devotion.
Spiritual Masters can be personally contacted
through focusing the mind on the Light that is in the head.
Basically, a state of omniscience is in the process
of unfolding in the centers of intuition.
In its later development, every psychic sense
for each of the physical senses
are roused out of dormancy and become fully usable
to the Perceiver's demands.
These siddhis or mystic powers, however,
can swerve the sincere yogi off
of the path of transcendence if used immaturely
and for winning over the hearts and minds of the less intelligent.
Another power that is available to those
who can easily leave the body
is the ability to enter into other
inanimate or animate bodies and objects.
The experience of ascension is possible
when the upward centers are liberated
from the downward influences of the body, emotions and mind.
By being one pointed in understanding
the relationship that exists between ether and sound,
the ability to spiritually hear sound vibrations opens.
The power to travel throughout space
is given to those who are capable of meditating
on the profundity of space.
Disembodied is he who has done away
with the gross and subtle bodies
that hides the Inner Light of the Soul.
Perceiving the world and beyond
independent of the working senses,
mastery over matter or substance is becoming clearer and clearer.
The yogi who can master his perceptions
of the differences between soul and spirit
is close to the Divine Brahman
in that the yogi's Consciousness is becoming as expanded as the Universe.
Passionless in outlook towards all of the powers of the soul
is what renders it possible to become a Unity in and of itself.
As omniscient and omnipresent as can be,
the yogi has access to all that which is stored in the Eternal Now.
At-One-Ment is achieved when the body and soul
are of equal purity and of equal insight.
