You are practicing breath-control. Mechanical breath-control will not lead one to the goal. It is only an aid. While doing it mechanically take care to be alert in mind and remember the ‘I’ thought and seek its source. Then you will find that where breath sinks, there ‘I’ thought arises. They sink and rise together. The ‘I’ thought will also sink along with breath. Simultaneously, another luminous and infinite ‘I’-‘I’ will become manifest, which will be continuous and unbroken. That is the goal. It goes by different names – God, Self, Kundalini Sakti, Consciousness, Yoga, Bhakthi, Jnana, etc.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, from the classic, ‘Talks’, p 160
