July 12, 1996 

1.Motive is the urge of the being, but we take it here as the urge of the physical.

2.Opinion is fully conscious, attitude is half-conscious, motive is subconscious.

3.Being subconscious, its movement is internal.

4.As motive is of the physical, it has an organisation inbuilt into it.

5.That organisation makes its effectivity full.

6.The hierarchy of opinion, attitude, motive is interlinked in the sense each determines   the other.

7.Till they are formed, they are being determined by the others.

8.After it is well formed, it determines the others.

9.The independent power of determinism creates a conflict and wastes energy.

10. Their harmony, especially at the level of being, harnesses energy and renders them most effective.

11. Motives act similarly in the individual as well as in the collective.

12. Being subconscious, motives do not conflict in the individual and the collective.

13. Opinions and attitudes of the individual can generate greater conflicts with those of the collective.

14. For sure accomplishment one should have his motive on his side.

15. People are not generally conscious of their motives. Often they believe a different motive to be theirs or even the opposite.

16. For one to know his own motives, he cannot use his reason successfully.

17. He has to resort to subtle symptoms or use higher principles to discover his motives.

18. Motives are most often a continuation of the previous generation.

19. At the end of a cycle, it turns into its opposite.

20. To know one's motives and be in tune with them is the surest way to success.

21. Motives exist in grades.

22. Even in the same person, different motives can have different intensities.

23. We can also speak of mental, vital motives.

24. An urge becomes a motive when it becomes either irresistible or acquires a conscious effectivity in full.

25. There is no deeper psychological force than the motive of the being.
