“By repeated practice one can become accustomed to turning inwards and finding the Self. One must always and constantly make an effort, until one has permanently realized. Once the effort ceases, the state becomes natural and the Supreme takes possession of the person with an unbroken current.
“Until it has become permanently natural and your habitual state, know that you have not realized the Self, only glimpsed it.” – Ramana Maharishi
