We think we are meditating upon It and developing towards It, whereas the truth is that we are iron filings and It is the Atman-magnet that is pulling us towards Itself. Thus the process of finding the Self is a form of Divine magnetism.
—Sri Ramana Maharshi
The chooser's happiness lies in his congruence with the chosen,The peace of iron filings, obedient to the forces of the magnetic field.
Calm is the soul that is emptied of all self,In the eternal moment of co-inherence.A happiness within you - but not yours.—Dag Hammarskjöld
