Becoming whole and still.
You can reflect
The world within your own self,
And like the mountain lake, spontaneously reveal
The beauty of snow-capped peaks, the sun and moon,
Yet still be filled with the living waters of bliss
Though saints are born in samadhi
All can work towards this goal
With faith, strong will, intelligence. Swami Satyananda Saraswati.
If you take this extract line by line, each one is a powerful visualization.
Becoming Still. Sit in a comfortable pose. Be aware of the contact points between your body and the floor or chair. Be aware of the sensation of your clothes on your skin. Be aware of the hair on your head. Be aware of your tongue, teeth, lips and your eyelashes. Just explore all the sensation points.
Reflect on your thoughts. Be a detached witness. No participation. No anxiety if a thought comes repeatedly.
You will soon see utter beauty within and this beauty is the stillness and quiet within you.
