Reading the Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda. This book gives me life over and over again. It’s like remembering long forgotten wisdom. Including this poem by Thayumanavar:

“You may control a mad elephant; You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger; Ride the lion and play with the cobra; By alchemy you may earn your livelihood; You may wander through the universe incognito; Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful; You may walk on water and live in fire: But control of the mind is better and more difficult. “
