“Someone who does not take a trip to the Kingdom of God (Transcendental Consciousness or samadhi), he remains searching for it – all pursuits, this and this, and greater pursuits. But unless totality is fathomed by the mind, the mind is not going to be continuously fooled by little gains here and little gains here. The mind will not be satisfied. It won’t settle down. It will only settle down in something unbounded, infinite, where he could know anything, he could do anything – that much power in man.”
–Maharishi Mahesh Yogi from an interview, September 24, 1994
This is such a key point. Some practice trying to force the mind to settle, to control the mind. But this is basically the mind trying to control itself. The real key is touching what is beyond the mind. That’s where the magic is. And when that becomes lived in daily life? We live heaven on earth. Simple.
