"When the clouds disappear, the sky clears and the sun shines brilliantly. When the sun shines, does one need artificial light to see? When the light of the soul blazes, the light of consciousness is needed no longer. Nature and its qualities cease to affect the fulfilled yogi. From now on they serve him devotedly, without interfering with or influencing his true glory. He understands the sequence of time and its relationship with nature. He is crowned with the wisdom of living in the eternal Now. The entire Now is Divine and he too is Divine. All his aims of life are fulfilled. He is a
, a fulfilled soul, one without equal, living in benevolent freedom and beatitude. He is alone and complete. This is kaivalya. Patanjali begins the Yoga Sutras with atha, meaning 'now', and ends with iti, 'that is all'. Besides this search for the soul, there is nothing."
