Absence of physical light is darkness, but spiritual light shines everywhere—even in the darkness. Behind physical darkness is Light. When, in meditation, you pierce the darkness, you behold the Spiritual Eye. It is behind these clouds of darkness, with closed eyes, that Christ is perceived. Through the Spiritual Eye you can come into the sphere of awakened silence. Prepare your mind, and meditate until your entire consciousness passes through the telescopic eye and beholds Christ Consciousness now.

—Paramahansa Yogananda, “A Christmas Message to Students and Friends (1935),” from Self-Realization magazine, winter 1992.
