“Visualize your consciousness expanding like a blue light, encompassing all space.  Imagine the stars and galaxies shining like the lights of a distant city within the infinitude of your being.  Meditate on your vastness within.You will find in this visualization an important adjunct to the meditation techniques.  It will help to remind you of your inner, divine nature.” Paramhansa Yogananda
