What Becoming Transparent Reveals

    If you allow the life-force to function without your interference, you’ll enjoy perfect health. It is only human interference that destroys health. The less I interfere, the better the body functions.

     There is no need to fear, how far can I go? Don’t ask me, ask yourself. Can I do this? Don’t ask others, do it and see. At the same time learn to listen to the voice of your own body, that voice within yourself will tell you-“this far and no farther.” When will you defy that voice? When there is wrong motivation.

     When the body is in a state of good health, the mind becomes clear. Yoga enables you to see your own mind, to observe your own mind. When the mind is calm and peaceful and you are able to observe it, it is clear. That clear mind is transparent and the transparent mind reveals the inner secrets. This is called clairvoyance. Clairvoyance means, in French, “clear sight”. That is all. My sight is clear, it is not confused, and therefore I’m able to look within, see the mind clearly. It becomes transparent. There one discovers what one is.
