Savitri, Book II The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto V The Godheads Of The Little Life, Part 4
The Traveller is moving towards the end of the little life and Sri Aurobindo speaks of the greater future that awaits when our soul awakens and we learn at last who lives unseen within us. The Little Life is only a provisional scheme; A false appearance sketched by a limiting mind and sense. When the Traveller first came to the Godheads of the Little Life, he plunged his gaze into the sea of mist to see the small vital beings lurking and working there. On his way out of the mist, traveling in the wounded gloom, he shore his way through the astral chaos like one who walks without a guide, treading a soil that failed beneath his feet.
