"In India, the Candidates for Initiation into the science of 'Raja Yoga,' when they apply to the Yogi Masters for instruction, are given a series of lessons designed to enlighten them regarding the nature of the Real Self, and to instruct them in the secret knowl­edge whereby they may develop the consciousness and realization of the real 'I' within them. They are shown how they may cast aside the erroneous or im­perfect knowledge regarding their real identity.

Until the Candidate masters this instruction, or at least until the truth becomes fixed in his consciousness, further instruction is denied him, for it is held that until he has awakened to a conscious realization of his Actual Identity, he is not able to understand the source of his power, and, moreover, is not able to feel within him the power of the Will, which power under­lies the entire teachings of 'Raja Yoga.'

The Yogi Masters are not satisfied if the Candidate forms merely a clear intellectual conception of this Actual Identity, but they insist that he must feel the truth of the same must become aware of the Real Self must enter into a consciousness in which the realization becomes a part of his everyday self in which the realizing consciousness becomes the prevail­ing idea in his mind, around which his entire thoughts and actions revolve."      ~The "I."

William Walker Atkinson (December 5, 1862 – November 22, 1932) was an American attorney, occultist, and writer who was one of the key contributors to the New Thought Movement. Atkinson also wrote under the pen name of Yogi Ramacharaka.
