Mind is the slowest of all the soul powers. Faith is a seed in the heart, not in the mind. The infinite intelligence communicates to us through our heart and not our heads. LIFE in the infinite happens through intuition. Mastery of the intuitive process, as with mastery of any skill, is tapping into the infinite intelligence.

Scenario two looked like this: On the planet Arcadia, in a pleasant country of temperate climate, colonists from Earth are attacked by the most insidious of enemies—a parasite which digs its way into their very brains. The cellular units of the parasite may connect into a pseudo-organism of any magnitude—into an organization of cells many thousand times the size of the human brain. Furthermore, the cells have the property of mimicry. Once having contacted an organ of such complexity and capability as the human brain the parasite can easily duplicate it and learn to develop similar functions. It acquires the faculties of conscious thought, intelligence and self-awareness, and forms a mind of its own which floods the brains of its victims, reducing their own personalities to helpless subservience to a single Self, which is its own although made in the image of the human individual self.

The parasite begins a long program of controlled self-development and evolution preparatory to extending its domination to all other worlds where human colonies exist—and perhaps ultimately to all habitable worlds in the universe.

Then the men from Earth arrive. Although relatively naive they pose a threat. Firstly, they arrive at a time when the super-mind is still relatively undeveloped, having so far acquired only a fraction of the powers potential to it. Secondly, they have an impregnable base from which to operate, and within it a genetic engineering laboratory potentially capable of producing a living weapon which can destroy the super-mind.

The super-mind therefore tries to hide its real nature from the visitors, and attempts to seduce them into accepting parasitism by pretending to be harmless. Once it has taken over one of them, by one means or another, it stands a reasonable chance of getting into the ship, at which point it has won the battle. The men from Earth, although realizing the true state of affairs, hesitate over the proper course of action, giving the super-mind time to plan a winning strategy.

The men from Earth are absorbed into the super-mind and carry it back to an unsuspecting Earth, which is conquered with a minimum of trouble. After taking over Earth, the super-mind goes on to co-opt the whole universe to itself and, effectively, to become God. Maybe, it already happened once, an unimaginable age ago, and life in the universe as it is today is the wreckage of the last super-mind, which somehow destroyed itself

Normally, when we slow down our brain waves by relaxation or meditation, they eventually settle down to Delta, which is the unconscious or sleep state. However, if we can slow down or reduce the frequency of our brain waves without falling asleep (which is one of the keys to understanding its powers), then a person can perform certain mental tasks at one brain wave, which he cannot do at other brain wave levels. For example, at the Alpha level, one can project his consciousness or awareness into the future and know what’s going to happen before it does (technically called precognition). He can project his consciousness into the past and know what happened without being there (called retrocognition). He can project his awareness to another person and know what he is thinking of (through telepathy). He can project his awareness to a distant place he has never been to before and describe it accurately (through remote viewing or travelling clairvoyance). He can also heal himself and others through mental imagery or visualization. Why is this possible? Because at the Alpha level, the brain waves, both of the left brain hemisphere and the right, are synchronized. And when this happens, the person is able to tap the tremendous powers and knowledge hidden in the subconscious mind consciously. Therefore, training ourselves to think at the Alpha level without falling asleep offers tremendous benefits and powers for everyone.

The Alpha rhythm is important not only because it enables us to perform some incredible things with our brains but also being in that state can boost our immune system and thus keep us healthy. Going into Alpha also removes stress and increases mental ability. When we are in meditative state, we are at the Alpha level of our brain waves.

recognition of resistance: resistance to insight; resistance to knowing the self; resistance, therefore, to arriving at the truth. The recognition of the Truth opens the door to transcendence.

Transcendence of what? Transcendence of the lower and more primitive part of the personality. Consciousness is the Intelligent Plan that directs the atom to the proper atom to make the proper molecule and, in turn, to join Oxygen with Hydrogen to make water. This Intel-ligent Plan hovers over the universe of universes and imparts order to everything. It is the Intelligent Plan that we call Consciousness.

You will see that our individual consciousness, the director of the personality, rises to higher and higher levels in the return to HOME. But don’t be deceived. This is not automatic, and it is not passively received. Instead one must work to find the inner resistance to growth, the inner resistance to facing the fear inside, and then to withstand the fear in the sure knowledge that one will break through to a higher degree of freedom. Along with this comes greater insight into the self and greater personal strength with which to meet the trials of life. Finally, one can ascend to a position of love-wisdom, ready to face the travails of life, and to assist fellow-humans along the way.

The purpose of evolution is to reveal the Spirit of the Superconscience that is concealed within the dark chambers of the lower triple of Matter, Life and Mind. In other words, it aims at the transition of ignorance towards true knowledge. But the evolutionary process not only aims at the revelation of the Spirit or the removal of ignorance but it also intends a radical and integral transformation or the manifestation of a permanent new order of beings in the field of terrestrial existence. In other words, it aims at the evolution of supramental beings rather than spiritual beings. Till now man as a mental being is able to raise himself from the mental level to the spiritual poise. But the spiritualization of a group of men is not the end of the evolutionary process. Another instrumentation higher than mind has begun to develop in man. That instrumentation is the Supermind.

The nature of the Supermind – Knowledge at the mental level is largely mixed up with ignorance, but knowledge at the level of the Supermind is free from ignorance and proceeds to reveal a greater light. However, the Supermind does not operate until the spiritual mental being rises fully to the level of the Supermind which can bring down its powers into the terrestrial exis-tence. The gap between mind and the Supermind is vast. So the intention of the evolutionary process can be fulfilled by the process of the triple transformation.

The triple transformation includes the psychic change, the spiritual change and the supramental transmutation.

There must first be the psychic change, the conversion of our whole present nature into a soul-instrumenta-tion, on that or along with that there must be the spiritual change, the descent of a higher Light, Knowledge, Power, Force, Bliss, Purity into the whole being, even into the lowest recesses of the life and body, even into the darkness of our subconscience; last, there must supervene the supramental transmutation, —there must take place as the crowning movement the ascent into the Supermind and the transforming descent of the supramental Consciousness into our entire being and nature.”

Psychic transformation or psychic change is the first step towards spiritual change of Nature. The psychic entity is not something mysteri-ous. The psychic part of our being is the soul or the central being or the inner being. The phrase ‘Central being’ in our yoga, says Sri Aurobindo, is usually applied to the portion of the Divine in us which supports all the rest and survives through death and birth. This central being has two forms above, it is Jivasman, our true being, of which we become aware when the higher self-knowledge comes, below, it is the psychic being which stands behind mind, body and life.

The soul, representative of the central being, is a spark of the Divine supporting all individual existence in Nature, the psychic being is a conscious form of that soul growing in the evolution — in the persistent process that develops first life in matter, mind in life, until finally mind can develop into overmind and overmind into the supramental Truth. The soul sup-ports the nature in its evolution through these grades, but is itself not any of these things.

The Psychic which is the divine spark in man is an ever pure flame of the Divinity and this flame is never extinguished nor its purity ever polluted by anything that enters into it. In view of its purity it is always aware of truth of being and truth of nature. It is also deeply conscious of truth, good and beauty and this is the inherent character of the psychic. The psychic being or the divine light in man is unfortunately veiled in the dark chamber of our inconscience. If the psychic being from the beginning remains unveiled, naturally the spiritual transformation can easily take place.

If the psychic entity had been from the beginning unveiled and known to its ministers, not a secluded King in a screened chamber, the human evolution would have been a rapid soul outtlowering, not the difficult, checkered and disfigured development it now is, but the veil is thick and we know not, the secret Light within us, the light in the hidden crypt of the heart’s innermost sanctuary.

The psychic being is not affected by our external experience. But when the intimations rise from the inner psychic being to the surface being they arc distorted by the impurity, smallness, imperfection, error of our mind, life and body. It is only when man is conscious of his psychic being and brings it to the fore-front as a guide of his surface being and external activity that the Psychic transformation takes place.

The spiritual transformation, according to Sri Aurobindo, takes place slowly. We have already pointed out, firstly, the psychic or the inner being is veiled within the dark chamber of ignorance. Secondly, the intimation rising from the inner being is coated by the mental covering. Thirdly, man is simultaneously a unique and multi-person. He is a unique person in the sense that he is the divine, and his self is identical with the indivisible Infinite, omnipotent Absolute. But he is a multi-person in the sense that he is not aware of his true self. He becomes a combination of physical, vital and mental Purushas.

The physical Purusha very often dominates some individuals, while others are subjected to vital desiresand some other persons tend to become mental beings. The mental persons predominantly live in their mind. They gradually control their will, interest and ideals through their mind. They are able to compress and suppress their demands of lives. bodies etc.

Mind in spite of its power is often impotent before the inconscient and subconscicnt which obscure its clarity and carry it away on the tide of instinct or impulse; in spite of its clarity it is fooled by the vital and emotional suggestions into giving sanction to ignorance and error, to wrong thought and to wrong action, or it is obliged to look on while the nature follows what it knows to be wrong, dangerous or evil.”

The first condition for the psychic transformation is the complete emergence of the soul and a direct contact of the surface being with the spiritual reality. There are three approaches to establish the above contact. The first approach is evinced in the soul’s complete emergence or coming to the forefront of the personality, by establishing a direct link of the surface personality with the Supreme Reality and seeking this Reality through the good, the truth and the beautiful, through all that is pure and fine, high and noble.

The second approach for the direct contact of the surface being with the Reality is through the heart, through a love and adoration of the All-Beautiful, All-Blissful, the All-Good, the aesthetic and the emotional worship. The third approach of the soul is the surrender of the pragmatic will to the supreme will which proceeds by gradual elimination of the ego-will and its native power of desire. All these three approaches, the surrender of the mind, the surrender of the heart and the surrender of the will bring the psychic being to the fore-front and make him the master of the surface being.

Besides these three approaches the individual, for the achievement of psychic transformation, must shift his centre of consciousness from the surface level to his inner being. He must gradually become the inner person. The individual must have the strong force of call, aspiration or effective discipline to break down the wall that exists between the surface and the inner being. But the aspiration of the individual must not be subjected to egoism, self-interest and passion. He must possess a sincere will for purity, readiness for the obedience to Truth and surrender to the Highest.

When the psychic contact takes place in an individual he becomes conscious of the experience that he has lived always eternally — in the past, present and future, life and death lose their significance as he gets the experience of immortality. This leads to the psychic change discussed supra. When the psychic integration is achieved by an individual, the following results follow.

Firstly, the wall between the innerand the outer beings breaks down. The inner light or fire burns in one’s heart and it refines the conscious-ness and substance of his nature. Secondly, the psychic being guides and governs from within the function of life, mind and body and exposes each moment to the light of Truth, repeals what is false, obscure, opposed to the divine realization. This implies that every movement, thought, action, reaction, motive will, emotion, sensation etc. every region and every nook and corner of the being is brightened up by the psychic light. As a result of this the whole being is turned towards spiritual truth of thought, feeling, sense of action and comes out of the darkness of ignorance. Thirdly, the individual receives different kinds of spiritual experiences such as experience of the self, experience of Cosmic Consciousness, a direct touch with Cosmic forces and with the occult movements of Universal Nature, a psychic sympathy and unity and inner communication and interchanges of all kinds with other beings and with Nature.

The psychic change and integration culminates in an opening of the consciousness to the higher regions of the consciousness. It is completed by an opening upward to a supreme spiritual status or a higher existence. This opening is nothing but an ascent of consciousness into the ranges of the overwind and supramental nature.

All these changes can be briefly stated as a contact of the individual with the Supreme Reality through his mind and heart and will with an experience of the Truth, Good and Beauty.

The most important characteristic of the evolutionary process as outlined by Sri Aurohindo is that it is firstly spiritualistic. It is neither materialistic nor vitalistic. Though matter is at the base of the evolution-ary process, it is not the original or the ultimate cause of the manifesta-tion of the cosmos. The spirit that is hidden behind material existence is the sole cause of creation. Evolution implies the unfoldment of consciousness or Divine or Spirit that is hidden in Matter, Life and Mind. It moves from Mind to the Higher Mind, the Illumined Mind, Intuition, the Overmind and the Supermind finally culminating in Sachchidananda’ s Existence — Conscious Force — Bliss. Thus the evolu-tionary process aims at the transition of the Spirit from its original state of darkness of ignorance towards true knowledge. It aims at the spir-itualization of Matter, Life and Mind and supramentalisation of not only the mental being but the total consciousness. This includes the ascent from non-being to the true Being and from mortality to Immortality.

Secondly, this theory of evolution is based upon the principles of involution and evolution. Evolution is just the inverse process of involu-tion. Involution implies the descent and plunging of Consciousness in the dark chamber of Ignorance and Inconscience and here it means Sachchidananda involving itself in the lower forms of existence.

which the sense of Self and Spirit is ever unveiled and permanent and in which the Self-luminous instru-mentation of the Self and Spirit is not restricted or divided as in our mind-nature, life-nature, body-nature.

It is to be noted that the Superconscience is veiled from us by the hard lid of mind, though by itself it is permanently bright and luminous. But under the pressure of psycho-spiritual change the lid of the mind breaks down and the individual consciousness rising up to the supramen-tal level feels the descent of the power of Infinity.

What we see by the opening of vision is an Infinity above us, an eternal Presence or an infinite Existence, an infinity of consciousness: an infinity of bliss — a boundless Self, a boundless Light; a boundless Power, a boundless Ecstasy.”

But the individual consciousness can ascend to the Supercon-science even long before the psycho-spiritual change takes place. The psychic transformation and a strong aspiration towards superconscience may destroy the heavy lid of mind that covers the Superconscience. As a result of that the mind rises to the higher place of the pure self- silent, tranquil and illimitable and feels the infinite power and divine presence. This ascension, however, does not bring about a total transformation, for the memory of transformation at this stage remains vague or fragmentary and the Consciousness falls hack to its original state. But the memory of the ascent is recovered in course of time and the ascent of the Consciousness takes place again. To make the accent permanent and stable a third condition is needed. This condition is the Supramental Transformation.

Besides the psychic and the spiritual transformations the supramen-tal transformation is required for transcending the dark ignorance that covers up the lower triple of matter, life and mind. At this stage of supramental transformation the Superconscience or the Divine Light descends and penetrates into the lower triple of mind, life and body. All

darkness and confusions gradually disappear. A higher and greater truth-wisdom enters into our being:

a new consciousness begins to form, the mind of a high wideself-existent thinking knowledge or an illumined or an intuitive oran overmental consciousness with new forces of thought or sight and a greater power of direct spiritual realization which is more than thought or sight, a greater becoming in the spiritual substance of our present being, the heart and the sense become subtle, intense, large to embrace all existence, to see God, to feel and hear and touch the Eternal, to make a deeper and closer unity of self and the world in a transcendent realization’

The most important characteristic of the evolutionary process as outlined by Sri Aurohindo is that it is firstly spiritualistic. It is neither materialistic nor vitalistic. Though matter is at the base of the evolution-ary process, it is not the original or the ultimate cause of the manifesta-tion of the cosmos.

Secondly, this theory of evolution is based upon the principles of involution and evolution. Evolution is just the inverse process of involu-tion. Involution implies the descent and plunging of Consciousness in the dark chamber of Ignorance and Inconscience and here it means Sachchidananda involving itself in the lower forms of existence.

Evolution implies the emergence of Consciousness from the lower forms into the higher forms of existence. The Conscious-Force of Sachchi-dananda gradually emerges or evolves from material, vital and mental existence and reaches the stage of Sachchidananda until it is fully manifested. The involution of the spirit or the Divine in lower forms of existence precedes the evolution of consciousness towards the Supreme Reality. There can be no evolution without involution.

An Involution of the Divine Existence, the spiritual Reality in the apparent inconscicnce of Matter is the starting point of the evolution. But that Reality is in its nature an eternal Existence, Consciousness, Delight of Existence:theevolution must then be an emergence of this Existence, Consciousness, Delight of Exis-tence, not at first in its essence or totality but in evolutionary forms thatexpress or disguise it outof the Inconscient Existence appears in a first evolutionary form as substanceof Matter created by an inconscient Energy. Consciousness, involved and non-apparent in Matta, first emerges in the disguise of vital vibrations, animate but subconscient; then in imper-fect formulations of a conscient life, it strives towards self-finding through successive forms of that material substance, forms more and more adopted to its own completer expression’

Thirdly, Useevolutionary process is based on the triple principles of widening, ascent and integration. The widening principle implies the increasing complexity of the Iowa principle. It is the essential condition for the evolution of higher Ions of existence. Matter must be sufficiently developed to manifest Life. This implies that the forms of matter thus evolved become more and more organized in subtlety and complexity so that it shall form the indispensablephysical foundation for manifesting a more astute and intricate consciousness.

Moreover, the process of evolution is based upon the ascent or heightening of consciousness from its lower status to its higher status.

Matter through 1, arious gradations ascends up to the level of Sachchidan-anda. It has already been pointed out that evolution is in essence a process of heightening of consciousness.

The consciousness now present in the manifest being has to be raised into the greater intensity of what is still unmanifcst from matter into life, from life into mind, from mind into the spirit. This is the method of our growth from our mental condition into a spiritual and supramental manifestation. Man is still a half-animal creature and he has to grow into a divine being and a divine living, he has to achieve a new spiritual height, wideness, depth, subtlety, intensity of his consciousness and acquire the substance, the force, the sensibility, the elevation, the expansion, plasticity and integral capacity of a larger divine existence.

The most important feature of this evolutionary process is integra-tion. When the lower principle ascends to the higher level of conscious-ness, all the previous lower principles are transformed. The higher principle that emerges transforms the lower realities and both the higher and the lower principles are integrated. For example, when life emerges from matter, it transforms matter and with the emergence of Life, Matter does not cease to evolve. Both Matter and Lifc again are together transformed into the higher principle of Mind. When Mind emerges, both Matter and Life become more sensitive and powerful. When the Supermind emerges, the lower triple of matter, life and mind gct transformed.

There is a power lying hidden in us, the true self or spirit self that transcends the finite self of the sense-being, by the use of which we can rise to higher and better things. These are the hidden powers with which we find our path, our way to our true self, to the inner master. “There is a power lying hidden in man, by the use of which he can rise to higher and better things. There is in man a greater Self. As soon as you know its nature, you no longer call the result a miracle, because the power that produces it is no longer mysterious.

What if we really knew this about ourselves, and believed it, each and every one of us: “There is a power lying hidden in man, by the use of which he can rise to higher and better things. There is in man a greater Self, that transcends the finite self of the sense-man, even as the mountain towers above the plain.” What kind of world would we be able to create, what might we build on this foundation? In a culture obsessed with success and its outward trappings, how can we find and harness the true expression of our passion and inspiration? How can we separate ourselves from the stream of false promises and zero in on the power within each of us to fulfill the true promise of our own destiny, and in the process transform our world, and ourselves, for the better?

Man possesses, did he but know it, illimitable Power.D.1 This Power is of the Spirit, therefore, it is unconquerable. It is not the power of the ordinary life, or finite will, or human mind. It transcends these, because, being spiritual, it is of a higher order than either physical or even mental. This Power lies dormant, and is hidden within man until he is sufficiently evolved and unfolded to be entrusted with its use. Thought is a spiritual power of tremendous potency, but this is not the power of which we speak. By thought, man can either raise himself up and connect himself with the “Power House” of the Universe, or cut himself off entirely from the Divine Inflow. His thought is his greatest weapon, because, by it he can either draw on the Infinite or sever himself (in consciousness, but not in reality) from his Divine Source.

Through the Divine Spark within him, which is really his real Self, man is connected with the Infinite. Divine Life and Power are his, if he realizes that they are his. So long as he is ignorant of his oneness with the Divine Source of all life, he is incapable of appropriating the power that is really his. If, however, he enters into this inner knowledge, he finds himself the possessor of infinite power and unlimited resources. This Power, then, is God’s, yet it is also man’s, but it is not revealed to him until he is fit to be entrusted with it. It is only when man realizes his oneness with his Divine Source that he becomes filled with Its power.

It will acts be seen how great is the power of man’s thought. While thought is not the power of the Spirit, it is the power by which man either connects himself up with the Infinite Power, opening himself to the Divine Inflow, or cuts himself off and separates himself from his Spiritual Source. Thus, in a sense, man is what he thinks he is. If he thinks he is separate from God and cut off from His Power, then it is as though this were really the case, and he is just as impotent and miserable as though he actually existed apart from God.

On the other hand, if he thinks and believes that he is one with the Infinite, he finds that it is gloriously true, and that he is really a son of God. If he believes and thinks that he is a mere material being, then he lives the limited life of a material being, and is never able to rise above it. But if, on the contrary, he thinks and believes that he is a spiritual being, then he finds that he possesses all the powers of a spiritual being. Again, if he thinks that his work is difficult and that he is not equal to his tasks, he finds that really his tasks are difficult and beyond his powers.

Yet on the other hand, if he believes his work is easy, or, at any rate, within his powers, he finds that such is the case, and that he can do his work with ease. The power within is infinite, for, by faith in it, man is directly “coupled up” with the Spiritual Power of the Universe. The Divine Spark within him connects him to the Sacred Flame, thus making him potentially a god in the making. A change then, must take place within man before he can enter into his Divine inheritance. He must learn to think after the Spirit, i.e., as a spiritual being, instead of after the flesh, i.e., as a material creature.

The extent of the Power that man can bring into his life is the measure of his faith in that Power. If his faith in It is small, then his life will be feeble and lacking in achievement. If his faith in the Power within him is large, then great will be the power manifesting in his life. The Power of the Infinite is illimitable and inexhaustible: all that is required is an unquenchable belief and trust in it. The weakest and most timid can make use of this Power. There is the same Power in the timid and weak as in the brave and strong. The weakness of the former is due to a lack of faith and belief in the Infinite Power within them.

There is only one journey: going inside yourself. In man lies hidden perfection barred and locked away by ignorance. The truth about our real divine nature lies hidden in the inner recess of our heart.

The invisible spiritual word of divine power works with and through the visible essence, as the soul with and through the body.

All earth shall become the open home of the Spirit, no longer veiled by the body and the life, no longer hidden by the mind’s ignorance. “The universe shall reveal its hidden meaning, creation’s process shall change its age-old appearance, and the hierarchy of this evolution in ignorance shall release the Wisdom imprisoned underneath its base i.e. in the Inconscience.

“The Spirit shall no more stay hidden in the obscurity of form, it shall be the undisputed sovereign of his world; Nature shall reverse the process of her action, the external world shall reveal the Truth it conceals. All things shall bring into open their hidden Godhead. All shall reveal the light and might of the Spirit embodied in it and move to its destined goal of felicity.

“But before that the high Truth must first descend on earth, man must aspire for the light of the Eternal, all his parts feel and respond to the touch of the Spirit and all his life-movements obey the inner Force of the Spirit.

“Man shall awake to the possibility lying hidden in himself, to all that has been dormant in his heart, to all the intention in Nature when the earth was first formed and to the purpose for which the Spirit chose to make this ignorant world his home. And he shall aspire to realise and manifest the Truth latent in himself, God intended by Nature to be delivered from her, Bliss for the revelation of which the Spirit made his home in this world.

“The higher beings, rendering a higher, diviner law into life, instruments of the supreme design of the creative Divine, shall uplift man. Man shall want to climb to his own unsealed heights. The truth that is above this lower hemisphere shall awaken the truth that is embedded below. Even the dumb, inconscient earth shall become a conscious force.

“The summits of the Spirit and the base of Nature shall come close to the common secret of their respective truths and know each other as but one divine manifestation. The Spirit shall look out through the eyes of Matter and Matter shall reveal the face of the Spirit. Then shall man and superman become one and all on earth become one single Life. There will be no division, no separation of one from another, any longer.

“Even the common multitude — not the few awakened ones alone — shall hear the Voice of God and turn inwards to commune with the living Spirit within and strive to obey in their lives the higher spiritual law. I his earth shall be moved with sublimer impulses, humanity shall awake to its deepest self, and Nature shall come to recognise the godhead hidden in herself. Even the multitude shall respond in some way and bear the splendour of the Divine’s invasion and his loud, impatient knock on the subtler doors of the being.

“A heavenlier passion shall bear men’s lives upwards; their mind shall partake of the gleam of the ineffable; their heart shall feel the high ecstasy and the fire; the bodies on earth shall become conscious of an indwelling soul; the slaves of mortality shall unfetter their bonds; those who are mere men now shall grow into spiritual beings and behold the dormant divinity awake.

“Intuition shall play on the heights of nature; a new revelation shall set astir the depths of nature; the one Truth shall lead men’s lives; Truth shall govern their thought, speech and act; Men shall feel themselves lifted up nearer to the sky, as though they were but a little lower than the gods.

“For knowledge shall flood with its radiant streams and even the darkened, obscure mind shall vibrate with a new life, burn with the fire of the Ideal and turn to free itself from the hold of mortal ignorance.

“The present borders of ignorance shall retreat and more and more souls shall enter into light; lit and inspired by the light, minds shall hear the call of the occult, divine summoner, lives shall blaze with a sudden inner tongue of fire, hearts shall be charmed with divine (not human) delight, human wills shall tune themselves to the divine will. These selves — now separate from each other — shall come to feel their oneness in the Spirit; the earthly senses shall grow capable of experiencing heavenly sensation, the flesh and nerves shall learn to feel a new ethereal joy, the mortal bodies shall find it possible to assume immortality.

“A divine force shall course through every tissue and cell and govern the breath, speech and act; all the thoughts shall be luminous with the radiance of knowledge and every feeling shall throb with a celestial thrill.

“Thus shall the earth open to divine Nature and common natures begin to feel the all-embracing, to illumine common acts with the ray of the Spirit and to meet the divine being in common things. Then shall Nature live to manifest the Godhead hidden in her, the Spirit take charge of the human play and this earthly life become the life divine.”

Supermind is already here but it is involved, concealed behind this manifest mind, life and Matter and not yet acting overtly or in its own power: if it acts, it is through these inferior powers and modified by their characters and so not yet recognisable.

Spiritual empowerment is the personal awakening that we are spiritual beings put here to evolve and expand. We all have the opportunity to awaken to the reality that we are spiritual beings in a biological body. The body likes to be in control and the spirit has to be awakened to its power. This is the process of becoming aware that we are more than humans with bodies. Once we become aware, we start a process of transformation that requires us to set our sights to the intention of heightened awareness. We should with joyful participation anticipate expansion, growth, maturity, evolution, and ecstasy!

Nowadays dream of a utilitarian Utopia governed by techno-crats. For him, man’s essential purpose in incarnating is not to exploit nature, nor merely to invent machines, nor to make the building of an earthly Paradise the final goal, but to seek first the Kingdom of Divine Power within, whence, without man’s inhumanity to man, all things needful to the progress of our race on this planet will flow inexhaustibly ; till, in the fullness of time, man will have ceased to be man, having attained the Other Shore beyond all realms of Illusion.

When you know the nature of any power, the results of its use are never mysterious to you. Yet miracles are wrought! And there are mysteries! It is always the unknown powers which are mysterious to you; it is such powers work what you call miracles! Yet a miracle is naught but the inevitable result of the ordinary operation of some power, which is unknown to you at the time the miracle is wrought. So long as the power is unknown to you, its operation is mysterious, and you call the result a miracle. But as soon as you know its nature, you no longer call the result a miracle, because the power that produces it is no longer mysterious.

Miracles can be wrought by you, when you learn to use the powers which are now unknown to you There are still many unknown powers of sound and of mind, of light and of love, of electricity and of life, of cosmic rays and of spirit; and each of them works miracles. There are many other powers still unknown to you, and many powers not yet known to any mind on earth.

Certainly, our term–soul –is not satisfactory to any thinker or scientist. But it is the best word we can use to designate the inner you, which includes all powers of mind and love and life and spirit. And the terms, mind and spirit, are no more satisfactory than some of the terms physicists use–such as light waves, ether, generator–each of which is ridiculous as a defiFITE4—term. We can not use the word mind to designate what we mean by soul, because mind is only one of the powers of the soul. Love also can not be used as a synonym for soul, for it also is butone of the soul’s powers. So until we coin a more defining word, we are forced to use the term, soul, for the total inner you.

Just as there are different rates of motion of physical powers and radiant energies, so also–in the realm of soul–there are slow and rapidly moving powers.

Mind is the slowest of all the soul powers. Faith is a seed in the heart, not in the mind. The infinite intelligence communicates to us through our heart and not our heads. LIFE in the infinite happens through intuition. Mastery of the intuitive process, as with mastery of any skill, is tapping into the infinite intelligence.

Infinite Intelligence have granted free will for all This is the intelligence that knows you more than you know yourself Enjoy the life in the infinite have a bliss, and you will never be the same. When we open our hearts, we gain access to the beauty, the aliveness, the wonder, and the inspiration that life is. When your thoughts are free of blockade, you will notice the energy in the feeling. The energy has a vibration. This is when you feel the energy vibrate through your body. The intensity of the energy is your power.

Spiritual empowerment is the personal awakening to its power. We have all the opportunity to awaken to the reality that we are spiritual beings in a biological body. Humans is a soul with a body, not a body with a soul. The body likes to be in control (through five senses) and the spirit has to be awakened to its power. That is the process of becoming aware that we are more than humans with bodies. Once we become aware, we start a process of transformation that requires us to set up our sights on the intention of heightened awareness.

You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you will discover will be wonderful. What you discover will be yourself.
