“It is by the will of awareness to penetrate that intelligence is able to move into and occupy the darkest recesses of our being. This intelligence is clarity to lighten the darkness. This is the dawn of wisdom, the intuitive insight that sees because it sees, knows because it knows, and acts immediately and spontaneously because the three powers of body, energy, and awareness have merged and aligned themselves with the light emitted by the soul.” —Yogācārya B.K.S. Iyengar, “Light on Life,” p. 172-3.
