“This isn’t really about thinking. We’re taught that that’s education, thinking. And so our education is basically thinking.
And I think it’s important to think. Feel it’s important to think.

For me, pratyahara isn’t withdrawing from the senses, it’s coming to the place from which all senses are born.”

There are many paths to our beginning. I suspect this is ultimately unique for each one of us.
One guidepost along the way might be returning to the spacious consciousness between the ongoing stillness of presence within our egg and the spontaneous, penetrating focus within our active sperm.
