The Yoga Sutras Of Patanjali - Kaivalya Pada
When the mind is overloaded, there is confusion. An inability
to properly use memory and consciousness occurs.
Consciousness assumes its own form and
perceiver is accomplished in mind stillness.
Consciousness is the source of all comprehension for the seer.
It is influenced and colored by that which is seen in the external.

Impressions, memories, desires and immeasurable thoughts
are tangled and woven into consciousness.
There is growth in the distinction between the soul and that which
perceives. The perception created by ego dissolves.
Then streams of intelligence appear in consciousness regarding the invisible
existence. Consciousness must draw closer to this knowledge.
Move confidently towards openings in the space between impressions.
Then it is said that our afflictions must be abandoned.
Profound meditation will set us free from desires and distractions with the proper
use of discriminative thinking. Then supreme intelligence rains upon us. We now
have the knowledge necessary to remain in union with the source of life.
The afflictions of Karma cease to affect us.
Impurities are removed and shrouds concealing infinite universal
knowledge vanish. This newly found knowledge and wisdom is glorious.
All that was learned previously seems insignificant.
All that has to be done in order to remove the perception of
separation and become transformed into illumination has been
done. That which is external can no longer affect us.
Approaching the end of the journey, moments of interruption cease, in
due course, illuminative states of transformation and expansion prevail.
Universal requirements of life have been achieved and moved aside or discarded, the qualities of nature no longer draw the seer, all can be left behind as movement is made back into the purity of consciousness experienced before birth, a beautiful liberation overcomes our essence and a pure consciousness is firmly established with life's source.
