The Natural Order Process - Volume 2 - Lesson 1
Patanjali's methodology is summarized as follows:
1) Disentangle the psyche from the elemental, animal and animalized human desire influences by the superior mental powers;
2) Direct the forces by which the psychic-nature functions to the centers in which Mind contacts the personality in identity with the 'objective world', and thence into the Mind-level of the individualized Self or Master;
3) Through control and purification of the thinking-principle and the instrumentality of Mind, induce will to take charge of the psyche;
4) By conscious functioning in will, free and clear from all hindrances or modifications by the thinking-principle, liberate the seer or Master and enter the real world.
