The Art and Science of Raja Yoga
by Swami Kriyananda
"Don't put meditation in the "some-day-when-I-find-the-time-for-it" category of your life. If you make it a point to meditate daily, you will soon see that the mental efficiency you derive from this practice will actually give you the time to get all those other things done which now seem so difficult to squeeze into your busy schedule. Your problems will be solved much more easily. Your work will be done much more quickly, because your energies will now be focused, not diffused. Success in everything demands that you act from your inner center, and not merely as the breezes of circumstance happen to blow you. Meditation, because it brings you to this inner center and thereby facilitates every other activity, should be your first duty in life."
