True signs of progress in meditation

From “Journey to Self-Realization” by Paramahamsa Yogananda

The true signs of progress in meditation are the following:

  • An increasing peacefulness during meditation
  • A conscious inner experience of calmness in meditation metamorphosing into increasing bliss.
  • A deepening of one’s understanding, and finding answers to one’s questions through the calm intuitive state of inner perception.
  • An increasing mental and physical efficiency in one’s daily life.
  • Love for meditation and the desire to hold on to the peace and joy of the meditative state in preference to attraction to anything in the world.
  • An expanding consciousness of loving all with the unconditional love that one feels toward his own dearest loved ones
  • Actual contact with God, and worshipping Him as ever new Bliss felt in meditation and in His omnipresent manifestations within and beyond all creation.
