We have become so habituated to our bodily gaols that even in the deepest meditation, when we stand on the verge of the soul's infinitude, we draw back affrighted and would rather cling to our captivity than be liberated from it. These timidities and fears will arise but they must be overcome. Bhagavad Gita VI:25 teaches the meditation on the Void: "Let him not think of anything."
