Previously, we have stated that one of the two major objectives of Hatha Yoga is to awaken a great power that lies dormant in the organism and utilize it for developing one’s own unique, individual potential; that is, to achieveself-realization.â It is the very postures we have been doing that provide the necessary stimuli and it is approximately at this point in our work that you can begin to actually experience the awakeningâ of the dormant forces. This awakening process is a subtle one; the elevation and increased energy are very different from the response to artificial stimuli such as coffee, drugs or alcohol. At first, you must make a conscious attempt to become aware of the manner in which this awakened life-force is manifesting; you have to turn your attention inward and look for it. Once recognized, it continues to grow and develop in a way that can effect very great, positive changes in your life. Hence the instructions that concluded this 11th Day of practice: Upon completion (of the continuous motion routine) sit very quietly in a cross-legged posture for several minutes and become aware of the awakening’ of your organism.â
