See what is coming

To try to repeat an experience is mechanical sadhana, not spiritual.  You have to keep the experience in your pocket, as it were, and then see what is coming today.  You should not call back yesterday’s experience.  That experience has become finite, because it is recognized.  Keeping that recognition in your pocket, see what is coming in today’s practice.  If you work like that, your practice is spiritual sadhana.  But if you want to repeat today the experience of what was new yesterday, it is repetition; it is not sadhana – it cannot be spiritual. – B.K.S. Iyengar
