The Bible explained – by a Yogi. Yogananda

The Secret Place of the Most High

One who finds within himself that “secret place of the most High” becomes suffused with supreme happiness and divine security.* Whether he is mixing with friends or sleeping or working, he keeps that place only for God. With his consciousness centered in the Lord, he finds maya’s concentric veils suddenly lifting; in joy the devotee sees God playing hide-and-seek with him in the blossoms, and the stars shining with a stronger Light, and the sky smiling with the Infinite. When his eyes are spiritually opened, the devotee beholds, peering at him through the eyes of everyone, the eyes of the Infinite. Behind the kind or unkind voice of everyone he hears the truthful voice of the Infinite. Behind the wise or helter-skelter will of everyone he perceives the constancy of the will of God. What a wonderful existence, when all of God’s disguises are cast off and the devotee is face to face with the Infinite, in blissful oneness of divine communion!

*”He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust….

“There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all the ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone….

“Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him:
“I will set him on high, because he hath known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him My salvation.” (Psalms 91:1-16).

-Paramahansa Yogananda, Second Coming of Christ, p 1187.

First you have to know where that secret place is
Then you have to learn how to go within
When you try to go within and fail you raise it is your mental impurities, worldly desires that created the problem
Then slowly you realize that it is not easy to get rid of desire
It’s a terrible habit from many births

But if done properly, Yukteshwar said anyone can be liberated in 12 years.
