Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Expansion of Consciousness
"The law of nature is such that everything,
even a small atom, wants to express itself.
Everything has consciousness. Below the human
species, everything is being taken care of by
Nature, and the unfoldment of consciousness
happens automatically. Only at the human level
is freedom given. You are allowed to work by
yourself to unfold your consciousness, to
expand your mind by reasoning, to uncover what
is preventing the mind from expanding. Human
beings experience a sort of personal, conscious
gradual effort in expanding the mind. That is
what Yoga teaches and that is what you see in
every religion. Gradually, the ordinary person
unfolds his or her divinity, but there is both
a conscious and a gradual effort.
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."

- "When even one virtue becomes our nature, the mind becomes clean and tranquil. Then there is no need to practice meditation; we will automatically be meditating always."
