We are aware of the power of thoughts, but we are unacquainted with the power of perception. Thinking tires knowledge-tissues whereas perception energises and activates them. Perceptive consciousness is natural. In whatever part of the body it enters, consciousness releases the current of vital energy in it. The flow of the current of vital energy in sufficient quantity arouses the dormant centres of consciousness in the body. The process of the arousing of the consciousness-centres has been briefly touched upon in this book.
