Sage Patanjali – Pearls of Wisdom

We are to live so that no harm or pain is caused by our thoughts, words, or deeds to any other being.

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.

These obstacles to self-knowledge disrupt and scatter the mind – they are disease, dullness, doubt, negligence, laziness, dissipation resulting from excess craving, delusion, lack of achieving the concentration necessary to achieve higher consciousness and instability.
