Yoga Sutras Part 4 ~ Kaivalya ~ Liberation

Yoga Sutras ~ 4th Pada ~ Kaivalya ~ Liberation

  1. Siddhis may arise aided by past lives, or psychoactive plants, mantras, austerities,
    or by samadhi
  2. Evolving as nature does
  3. Nurtured as obstacles are removed
  4. Mind arising do to an attraction
    to its higher nature
  5. We only need to stop getting in the way
    in order to see clearly
  6. Samadhi is free from karmic echoes and will calm those patterns
  7. Thus a true yogi may act beyond the relative duality of others
  8. As all causes of karma arise from the motive of self interest alone
  9. Karma is not unlike memory echo pattern sustained by selfish desire
  10. The urge to be is without beginning, therefore it is endless as well
  11. Root, branch, flower, fruit are cause and effect; like this karma is rooted in desire
  12.  Change effected by time alone is not a change in the nature of the self
  13. Each state from beginning middle to end is colored by the qualities of the gunas
  14. All change & variations arise from the blending of the 3 qualities of the gunas
  15. Thus creation and objects of consciousness are a vast spectrum of infinite possibilities
  16. Our perception depends on the quality of our consciousness,
    but objects have their own qualities
  17. So a conditioned mind will not understand very well the true nature
    of the things it perceives
  18.  Only the still higher Self illumines all the subtle modifications of mind and it’s objects
  19.  Mind is like the moon a dark object illuminated by the sun of pure being
  20. The mind can not observe itself in process but only by reflection illumined
    by the still Self
  21. Our reflection in the mirror is not another self, the mirror is clear,
    the reflection is the same thinker
  22. The true knower, the witness is like an ocean; not the thinker,
    which is but a wave on the ocean
  23. Mind creates & has access to impressions, thoughts & images
    of all things it has awareness of
  24. Yet mind filled with impressions & notions has a higher use as a conduit
    for clarity of vision
  25. when proper conditions permit, clouds of confusion lift and luminous clarity shines
  26. Attentive to the quiet witness, the mind stream flows to the clear ocean of abound freedom
  27. Further from the sea that same stream babbles along over heavy matter &
    the eddies they cause
  28. Bit by bit these obstacles too are washed away
  29. Steady, flowing cool & clear, free of obstacles, always attentive,
    life giving clouds rain blessing
  30. No more an effort or struggle at becoming, that is done, only being now remain
  31. no more the struggles of a seeker, here now is the knower fulfilled
  32. Liberation is not a distant goal, it is now a timeless state of being ever awakened
  33. Timeless now yet an infinitely expansive bliss of luminous clarity
  34. The duality appearance drops away, only the unbound remains,
    in the one with no other
