The Yogi is able to place the candle of his awareness or his attention on a niche within himself
where the winds do not make the candle flame move. That is where a sound or a sight or a smell or a taste or
a sensation on the skin does not distract him. What is left to distract him of course
are still his own thoughts, his memories, his plans … And, it is here that the discipline the yogi must impose upon himself
becomes exquisitely difficult and something requiring an extraordinary amount of patients.
