Can someone explain the proper nature of dharana? In Dayspring of Youth M states that "Concentration as the world knows it is different in the inner worlds. When we project our minds into the substance of a thing - for thought is penetrative - we prevent its approach to our minds" He goes on to say that true concentration is an objective process of uniting our minds to the inner intelligence of a thing, through which its intelligence "brings birth to a composite mass of atoms. . . that returns to us". When I concentrate on things such as tattvas, the cross, the empty circle, there is a definite feeling associated with each one. Is this what he refers to? Calling up this feeling before the soul, rather than burying tempests of thoughts beneath a piece of imagination like Samael spoke of? A clearer explaination would be greatly appreciated.
