This faculty of sensing supraphysical things internally or externalising them, so to speak, so that they become visible, audible, sensible to the outward eye, ear, even touch, just as are gross physical objects, this power or gift is not a freak or an abnormality; it is a universal faculty present in all human beings, mostly latent, often near the surface sometimes but much more rarely already on the surface. If one practises tratak, — concentrating the vision on a single point or object — it is pretty certain to come out sooner or later. The first sign of its opening in the externalised way is very often that seeing of "sparkles" or small luminous dots, shapes etc. Develop this power of inner sense and all that it brings you. These first seeings are an outer fringe — behind lie whole worlds of experience which fill what seems to the natural man the gap between the earth-consciousness and the Eternal and the Infinite.
A flaming serpent rose released from sleep.
It rose billowing its coils and stood erect
And climbing mightily stormily on its way
It touched her centres with flaming mouth:
As if a fiery kiss had broken their sleep,
They bloomed and laughed surcharged with light and bliss;
Then at the crown it joined the Eternal's space.
