A Yogi sees God

I didn't specify anything. Its the saying of Swami Vivekananda. But give me some time, I may answer your question.
What is the aim of Raja-Yoga?
A yogi sees God, and the soul. And Yoga is the way to help us see God and the soul. The aim of Yoga is to show us the truth and to make us moral.
And the science of Raja-Yoga proposes to put before humanity a practical and scientifically worked out method of reaching the truth.
The goal of all its (Raja-Yoga) teaching is how to concentrate the minds, then, how to discover the innermost recesses of our own minds, then, how to generalise their contents and form our own conclusions from them.

It "generalise their contents" perhaps means the minds contents, which we may call 'thoughts'. Am I right?
