The eight limbs of yoga as outlined in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras are as follows:

1. Yama – “restraints” or right attitude toward our environment; there are five and include ahimsa (nonviolence), satya (truthfulness), asteya (non-stealing), brahmacharya (sexual responsibility), and aparigraha (non-possessiveness).
2. Niyama – “observances” or right attitude toward ourselves, of which there are five, including saucha (purity), santosha (contentment), tapas (self-discipline), svadhyaya (study of self and scriptures), and isvarapranidhana (surrender to God).
3. Asana – “seat” or “posture,” the physical practice of yoga poses which should be done balancing ease (sukha) and effort (sthira).
4. Pranayama – “control of vital life force” or breathing exercises
5. Pratyahara – “withdrawal of the senses” or drawing the attention inward to discover the source of the senses
6. Dharana – “concentration” or the practice of meditation
7. Dhyana – “clarity” that arises from meditation practice, or the state of meditation
8. Samadhi – bliss, enlightenment, oneness, the ultimate reward of meditation

"Without a qualified teacher, the student cannot go beyond the Ocean of Samsara (cycle of death and rebirth). The inner path to the Divine is very subtle. It is arduous and is very difficult to tread. Without diligent practice, the destination seems very distant. Furthermore, the seeker experiences many temptations and obstacles. The student faces many inner struggles and temptations (that are likened to thieves and robbers who seek to rob the student of his accomplishments). These impediments cannot be removed without the assistance of the Satguru, a true teacher." (Swami Vyasanand)

The Inner Secret - A Ghazal (Mystic Poem) of Sant Tulsi Sahib

The Sants of India have always enjoyed the poetry of the Sufis. Soamiji Maharaj quoted Rumi in his Sar Bachan. The great devotee of Sant Tulsi Sahib by the name of Baba Devi Sahab would often quote Sufi mystics during his satsang discourses and writings, even traveling to a number of cities located in what is now Pakistan, such as Multan, Quetta, Karachi, etc.. Both Tulsi Sahib and Soamiji Maharaj included some ghazals (a Persian style of poetry) in their compositions of poems and hymns. Below is a ghazal of Sant Tulsi Sahib of Hathras, who had some Sufi followers (satsangis, initiates).

Are aye Taqi takte raho

Hear my words O Taqi, stay focused on the Satguru who has assisted you.

Do not succumb to negligence for this path if you desire to see the splendor of your Beloved.

His grace will guide you into His very presence, free of all dangers or fears along the way.

Go directly to your destination, for the Master has revealed to you his instructions.

Rumi, Shams, Mansur and Sarmad arrived. By this very path, and with firm resolve, they reached their goal.

Arduous is the way to the destination of love, but reaching there is not difficult. The one who resolves difficulties is with you and has given you his hand.

Says Tulsi, Hear me O Taqi, the inner secret is unlike anything you have known before. Keep it safe in your heart, for it focuses you on the Most High [God].

PODCAST: Christian Meditation & Mysticism Does Exist -- is a 'Thing' -- A Podcast of Spiritual Awakening Radio

Below Are NOTES About Today's PODCAST (9-5-18)

This passage from the Acts of Peter provides a great description of meditation practice: “Give ear; withdraw your souls from all that appears but is not truly real; close these eyes of yours, close your ears, withdraw from actions that are outwardly seen; and you shall know the reality of Christ and the whole secret of your salvation.”  -- The Other Bible, Willis Barnstone

In this matrix or labyrinth of existence we can become quite habituated into remaining as surface-dwellers living inundated by all the outward distractions that life on earth provides. We may ask of ourselves, “Am I availing myself of the spiritual direction and wisdom that comes from within?” This would be a source of wisdom that not only provides an inner perception of bliss, insight, or affirms a “Truth” of some sort that one believes in, but an inner intuition that can also make a positive contribution to one’s outward life in this world. Mystics teach that the inner and outer life are not separate. There is a relationship between one and the other. A life-affirming state of being on the inside leads one to making the outward life into something more heavenly too.

There are both outward and inward avenues to wisdom. There is the wisdom of living teachers with us now, as well as the wisdom left behind in the form of scriptures and spiritual classics by teachers of previous generations.

Outward instruction and inspiration are priceless, and there is also an inner Voice of the Silence we can tap into. “There is a speaking of God in the core of the soul where no creature can enter or speak, for only God lives there and only He speaks. God speaks there when the soul puts aside all that is created, when she silences her powers and gains a vision into the foundation of her pure essence. In this pure and silent soul, God the Father speaks and she hears His Voice.” (Meister Eckhart, German mystic)
