The Presence and Wisdom of Paramahansa Yogananda

Paramahansa Yogananda said;

"I see this little body as frozen sky;
and as I meditate the body becomes the vast sky,
swept up in the infinitude of God.
 Frozen sky means frozen fancy,
frozen imagination as the images in a dream.
In dreams you see people born and laugh and die,
 but when you wake up everything is gone.

Similarly,  this body is a 
 of the vastness of space.
But that is not how it appears to you.
When you are awake in ordinary consciousness,
 the body and its circumscriptions seem real,
but you are actually dreaming.

When you will forsake the dream of

delusion in the wakefulness of meditation,
you will realize that your earthly experiences

were frozen thoughts of God.
 To get out of this dream you must wake up in Him.
That wakefulness is reality!
That is what I see every minute, every second;
That consciousness remains with Me.
