Synthesis of Yoga Pt. 1, Ch. 7

Here is the second reading of this chapter, Standards of Conduct and Spiritual Freedom, picking up on bottom of page 192, through page 197.

Sri Aurobindo points out the four man standards of human conduct, on an ascending scale: first is personal need, second is the good of the collective, third is an ideal ethic and last is the highest divine law of the nature. Man begins with only the first two. Howeve,r the true business of man is to express a growing image of the Divine. It is to this end that Nature, knowingly or unknowingly, is working.

Mother's Q & A – 13/6/56

Mother’s Questions And Answers – June 13, 1956

Mother says that now that the supermind has descended into the earth plane, one can expect all possibilities. Since the supermind contains everything, the transformation, and everything that is done to achieve it can be whatever the supermind wants, and is no longer limited by the processes which existed before its manifestation. Since each one is different, the supramental consciousness adapts to all of the innumerable differences that exist in humanity. Each one will be automatically changed, depending on the totality of consecration and sincerity of aspiration. Mother speaks in detail about the need for children to develop their brains during their school years, and she explains the true work of the teachers.

Continuing with Part 1, the Yoga of Divine Works, Chapter 7 Standards of Conduct and Spiritual Freedom, begins on page 188.

” ….. all action and development has for the keystone of its structure a more and more concrete perception of unity, the living sense of an all-pervading oneness; ….. “

Sri Aurobindo further points out the definition of good and evil: ” ….. For good is all that helps the individual and the world towards their divine fullness, and evil is all that retards or breaks up that increasing perfection.”

This chapter will be recorded in a total of 4 readings, this being the first.

B's Experience on The Sunlit Path

CIRHU started “Aurovillian Conversations”, a series of weekly reflections between students, volunteers, newcomers and interested people with Aurovillians and friends of Auroville with experience in specific fields of knowledge.
This week the Aurovillian pioneer “B” was invited to share his experiences and reflections on “The Sunlit Path”. He also very interestingly referred to the modern day spiritual classic “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle as being a guide for the Sunlit Path, and of course as well as the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, which have been B’s main source of inspiration.
Listen in to the many beautiful reflections which were shared during this conversation at Bhavishyate on the evening of the 16th March 2017.

Savitri, B. II, C. X, Part 4

Savitri, Book II, The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto X, The Kingdoms and Godheads Of The Little Mind, Part 4, Pages 253 – 259

The great Yogi-King is at the end of his journey through the little mind. Sri Aurobindo shows us how reason, the last and greatest process of our little mind, cannot see the whole Truth. “For nothing is known while aught remains concealed; the Truth is known only when all is seen.” He shows what happens can when science, which is based on reasoning thought and observation of material things, can no longer rely on the thinking processes of the little mind. He speaks of the destruction that occurs when man uses only reason to control others by the mis-use of dangerous scientific discoveries.

Mother's Q & A – 6/6/56, Part 2

Mother’s Questions and Answers, June 6, 1956, Part 2

In this second half of the class, Mother speaks about a very important aspect of the yoga practice; the “reversal of consciousness”. When this happens, the true consciousness becomes stabilized in some part of our being. She says that we can use this to organize all the parts and elements of our being around our own Divine center, our psychic being, and that that this is the best thing we can do to be complete instruments of the Divine Will. She says, “This is truly the essential and original reason for physical life”.

Synthesis of Yoga Pt 1 Ch 6

Continuing with the vast concept of sacrifice: Chapter VI The Ascent of the Sacrifie – 2, The Works of Love – The Works of Life, page 158, stopping at the bottom of page 162.

Sri Aurobindo points out that life itself can be transformed into its own true spiritual figure. Although it is a divine love for the supreme and universal Divine that must be the rule of our spiritual existence, individual love that draws soul to soul is not excluded. Again he points out that a psychic change is necessary, the old inferior consciousness transformed, and each movement of love spiritualized – resulting in love being restored to its spiritual and psychic essence with the mind, vital and physical.

Another crucial and main point Sri Aurobindo emphasizes too: love for the Divine is no complete worship if not offered to him wherever he manifests; in man and object and every creature.

Through successive readings, this chapter will progress to its end on page 187

Lovers Rock 2

Lovers rock is a style of reggae music noted for its romantic sound and content. While love songs had been an important part of reggae since the late 1960s, the style was given a greater focus and a name in London in the mid-1970s.[1] Despite the name, lovers rock is not a rock subgenre or related to it.

Synthesis of Yoga Part 1, Ch. 5

This reading concludes Chapter 5, The Ascent of the Sacrifice – 1, commencing on page 151 through page 157.

” ….. All true Truth of love and of the works of love, the psychic being accepts in their place …
.. its flame mounts always upward ….. eager to push the ascent from lesser to higher degrees of Truth ….. only by the ascent to the original Truth ….. all the works of love ….. of knowledge and of life, be restored to a divine significance and become part of an integral spiritual existence.”
