Overcoming inner difficulties
uploaded: 13 August 2022

Accept this divine possibility in you; have faith in your inner being and its spiritual destiny. Make its development as a portion of the Divine your aim in life, — for a great and serious aim in life is a most powerful help towards getting rid of this kind of disturbing or disabling nervous weakness.... Accept too the help we can give you, not shutting yourself against it by disbelief, despair or unfounded revolt.

Sharing knowledge by identity
uploaded: 13 February 2022

There is then a supreme Reality eternal, absolute and infinite. ... It is indefinable and inconceivable by finite and defining Mind ... yet self-evident to a ... spiritual experience in the very substance of our consciousness; ... the intellect must consent to pass out of the bounds of a finite logic and accustom itself to the logic of the Infinite.

Education in a spiritualised society
uploaded: 13 February 2022

Formerly, [long before WW-I] education was merely a mechanical forcing of the child’s nature into arbitrary grooves of training and knowledge ... a society which was even initially spiritualised would make the revealing and finding of the divine Self in man the supreme ... aim of ... its education.

[T]]hese powers are not miraculous, but powers of Nature, which manifest of themselves as soon as the vijnanapadma in us begins to open, & are no more a cause for bragging & vanity than the power of eating & breathing or anything else that is Nature’s.

Fate and free-will

The surest way towards this integral fulfilment is to find the Master of the secret who dwells within us... [but the] spiritual progress of most human beings demands an extraneous support, ... an external image of God; or ... a human representative.

The Teacher of the integral Yoga will follow as far as he may the method of the Teacher within us. He will lead the disciple through the nature of the disciple. Teaching, example, influence, — these are the three instruments of the Guru.
