Sage Patanjali Thoughts

Meditation is an unbroken flow of awareness toward the object of concentration.
Non-attachment is self mastery: it is freedom from desire for what is seen or heard.
Aversion is a form of bondage. We are tied to what we hate or fear. That is why, in our lives, the same problem, the same danger or difficulty, will present itself over and over again in various prospects, as long as we continue to resist or run away from it instead of examining and solving it. Sage Patanjali
