“If you’re able to keep returning to your focus point (in meditation), you can move still deeper into the mind and experience the true Self, because underneath these three basic levels of consciousness (conscious mind, semi-conscious mind, unconscious mind) there is a fourth. For simplicity, I’ll refer to it as the source. It’s important to note that all minds originate from the same source point. This point has many names originating in many cultures. A simple Western name would be God. Eastern names would include the Tao and Brahman. Albert Einstein referred to this source as the Unified Field. Whatever you call this Source, it’s important to remember that it exists within every mind.
This source point is the origin of all thought……it’s a formless thought of pure joy, bliss and love. This thought is present within you at this very moment and at every moment, though it’s likely to be buried under layers of physical, emotional and psychological baggage.
It is this source point that we’re trying to realize when we practice yoga.”
