Notes on Life Divine

Conscious Force

Force is the nature of all existence

Science has concluded that matter and energy are one. That the whole material existence is a field of energy and that life and mind are only expressions of this energy.

The ancients liken existence to a sea of energy extended in space. The sea can either be still or in motion.

  • The stillness is the silent unity behind manifestation.
  • The movement gives rise to manifestation

The motions of the sea give rise to forces. These forces are created by the five elements, which are actually characteristics of energy taking on the attributes of force and form.

  • First is movement of the energy-sound.
  • The contact of force with force-which they called air
  • Then a capacity to preserve the characteristic form of that force-fire or light
  • Then a capacity for diffusion, attraction and repulsion-water
  • Then cohesion-earth

All forms the result of the interaction of force with force.

What then sets this existence in motion?

  • Or is it always in motion? Either way the energy must come from somewhere.
  • Energy is inherent in the existence. It is either in motion or still.

What determines the nature of that motion?

  • Whatever it is must also be inherent in the existence-energy
  • Could be it mechanical law?
  • If so, then there cannot be any design or purpose.
  • Wherefrom would the order emerge and the complexity and clear evidence of purpose which implies consciousness?

And then how to explain the emergence of purposeful consciousness from it?

  • Either consciousness comes from outside or it too is inherent in the existence.

What do we mean by consciousness?

  • Mental consciousness as we know it is an exception in nature.
  • But we also know there is something in ourselves that remains conscious when we sleep, dream, even when we are in coma. A vast subconscious which retains memories of the part and sense capacity even when we are unaware which influences our conscious behavior and experience.
  • Even in our waking state, what we call conscious is only a small selection of our conscious experience and our whole being.
  • And in the animals and even in plants, there is also a capacity for awareness and response.

Can we not dispense with consciousness by describing it also as material force or product of the material brain in the form of sensation that is inseparable from the physical organs?

  • No. The overwhelming evidence shows that the two are different
  • First, consciousness can exceed the physical senses and brain, in both man and animals.


Seeing or hearing what is beyond sense range

Knowing events at a distance

Mind grows in power when thought is silenced.

Intuition -- Withdrawal of mind from the senses opens it to intuition.

Decisions evoke life response

One can feel people approach, pain in the neck


Sheldrake experiments with repetitive learning in animals and humans

One can shift the center of consciousness or concentration from head to heart to body to outside the body.

Power of prayer and faith healing

Force contained in material objects is a tradition in all societies. Blessing packet.

Power of consciousness in flowers

  • Consciousness creates and uses the brain for its purposes, not vice versa.
  • The force is anterior, not the physical the instrument
  • We cannot explain the action of an engine by its construction. The force of steam or electricity that uses it is anterior.
  • Life can subsist even in the absense of physiological processes.

If we conclude that consciousness is distinct from the physical instrument and can exist in subconscious life

  • Then could it not also exist in material objects that we perceive as inert - in a state similar to sleep (not a suspension), where no movement appears on the surface?
  • Action of the subliminal far exceeds that of conscious mind?
  • We can conceive of a universal subconscient mind present in everything but unable to communicate on the surface
  • There is a range of submental consciousness which we can call vital and physical evident in the animal and plant displays movements of consciousness that are not mentality

Where did this consciousness come from?

  • Matter
  • Nothing can evolve out of matter that is not inherent in it
  • Then there must be a subconsciousness in matter, the metal and earth, as well
  • Though difficult to perceive, thought has a right to suppose unity where in all other instances it is demonstrated.
  • We then conclude that consciousness is present in all forms of force in the world.

What do we mean by consciousness?

  • Superconscience
  • And as there is a range of mental faculties and activity subconscious to mind, so also above our normal consciousness there is also a range of conscious experience which we can term superconscient.
  • Obviously something of which mentality is a special case and not the only instance.
  • Mentality is the middle term between subconscious and superconscious.
  • We arrive at the unity as physical science-that matter and mind are only different grades of the same energy, different organizations of one conscious Force of Existence.

Consciousness supposes purposefulness, intelligence, knowledge

  • We see it evidenced everywhere in nature
  • In animal instinct we find an intelligence beyond any the human mind has demonstrated
  • In matter as well, we find purposefulness hidden in the modes of its own working

The only argument against this intelligence in Nature is waste

  • But this is to limit our perception to the human point of view
  • Our own human actions display an equal propensity for what appears to be waste
  • Yet waste is only action that serves multiple purposes at the same time

Human consciousness is only a form of Nature's consciousness

  • The force that builds the worlds is a conscious force -90
  • The existence that manifests in the world is a conscious being.

Fallacies of Science

  • Lower level determinants give rise to higher level determinants
  • Atoms to molecules with different properties (H+O = H200

Seed to tree

Evolution theory can explain variations within a species but not the emergence of new species with new characteristics and the disappearance of all intermediary species between the old and new.

Mental creativity - Plato and Shakespeare cannot be explained by the chemical functionings of the brain


Evolution is of consciousness, not form.

  • Form changes to express the evolving consciousness.
  • As the artist creates forms to embody his inspiration.

Matter is subconscient will

Force is anterior to the instrument

  • In all life and society, the force precedes the form
  • Urge for survival gives rise to weapons and army
  • Attraction of women gives rise to family
  • Even in matter, force of attraction precedes form of matter
  • Parapsychological phenomenon
  • Life response -- Power of decision, omens, symbols
  • Inadequacies of evolutionary theory in biology -- Sheldrake
  • Uncertainty principle -
  • Subject influences the object
  • observation influences matter
  • the origin of energy is consciousness, observation

Oneness of all force

  • Western science is correct in postulating that matter, life and mind are expressions of a single force. The fallacy is in assuming that it is material in origin.
  • Forces differ in their vibratory rate or quality, not their essential nature.

Reversal of view

  • Copernicus reversed the perspective of earth and sun providing another explanation that equally tallied with observable facts but explained much more than the old geocentric view. The facts remaining the same, the explanation was more adequate.
  • For science the reversal of perspective needed is from viewing subject and consciousness as a result of objective world to examine the premises that the opposite is the fact.
  • What evolves out of matter must be already there involved in matter.

Delight of Existence: The Problem

Delight comes from overcoming limitations.

An infinite conscious existence, one without limits of any kind, must be an existence-consciousness of delight.

That existence is not confined to enjoying its delight in an unmanifest condition. It is also free to express its infinite existence in an infinite manifestation of forms, forces and experiences and to enjoy that same delight of transcending limitation in that infinity of experience.

Further, the process of awakening to higher levels of self-discovery and self-manifestation in and through that manifestation is a movement to progressively higher levels of delight of existence.

So long as we except an extra-cosmic deity, the problem is insolvable. No law of justice or karma can explain the pain and suffering imposed by a creator on his creations.

But when we accept the Vedantic view that the creator and the creation are the same, half the problem is eliminated.

  • Ethical norms are valid only in a dualistic situation between parties, not when there is only one Being.

But in any case ethics is a human conception that is valid no where in nature except society.

  • We do not condemn the lion for killing his prey or the fire for burning the forest.

We must accept that the material force in nature is not ethical. It acts to achieve its means, the stronger force prevails. The law that prevails is strength.

Self-blame and self-condemnation are the basis for true ethics.

Ethics and Evil

  • What we call unethical is mostly that which we dislike or recoil from, which displeases or hurts us. This is the origin of ethics, but it is not itself ethical.
  • Man terms evil that which hurts or limits his quest for self-development and delight. Gradually the definition changes as his perception is more enlightened and applied more universally to all people.

Ethics is a stage in evolution.

  • That which is common to all stages is the urge of Satchidananda toward self-expression.
  • This urge is infra-ethical in the animal, only half ethical in humanity.
  • Ethics is the means by which humanity seeks to rise from a lower level of harmony and universality based on inconscient and division to a higher one based on conscious oneness with all creation.
  • Beyond this is a supra-ethical phase
  • Since ethics is only valid for one level, we must seek a solution to the problem valid for all.
  • That which is valid for all is the seeking by the consciousness force for delight in manifestation and the introduction of pain and suffering at a certain stage of that seeking.

Void is no answer

  • We cannot explain it by concluding that the true beginning or end is not satchidananda but rather a void or nihil. For how can an infinite potential be contained in a void or all things real emerge from that which is empty?

Universal delight

  • When we speak of universal delight we means something much wider and different from the human sensation of pleasure and pain.
  • Human joy, suffering and delight are the opposites of pain and suffering, very limited things. The delight we speak of is the background on which these surface experiences occur.
  • When delight of being manifests as delight of becoming it takes on the forms of pleasure and pain as its positive and negative currents. These are only its early and imperfect expressions in the evolution. The aim is self-perfection in delight of becoming.
  • In the human, this delight is subconscient and neutral covered by the poisonous growth of desire.
  • When desire is purified the pure delight will emerge which is concealed in these opposites due to ego, division and ignorance.

Delight: The Solution

Pleasure and pain are habits

  • Due to the limitation of force of consciousness in the form.
  • The experience of pleasure, pain and neutrality are not inevitable. They are experiences of the divided surface being.
  • The vital habit of fixed response to success and failure, etc. is not inevitable. Mind can give a different or opposite response.

We can transcend them

  • We can go within and discover the delight behind these experiences and remain there detached.
  • Better yet, we can transform these habitual responses of the surface being into delight.
  • Even the response of pain in the physical body is not inevitable, as seen during times of extreme danger or in hypnosis the pain can be suppressed completely.
  • The experiences of Maya, Prakriti and lila are all true and can be reconciled in an integral experience.

Nature of pain

  • Pain is nature's mechanism by which a divided being recognizes forces that threaten its limited existence. When we transcend those limits of ego and universalize, pain no longer has reason to exist, and if it does, it is only a lingering habit of the past.
  • Pain and suffering arise from a failure of the limited being to meet the pressures and forces without shrinking. Therefore the first step in spiritual progress is to achieve a response of equality, at least a neutral indifference to the incursion of forces on the being.

Beyond this, two paths are possible.

  • The path of the ascetic seeks to withdraw from external responses into the bliss of the being of the transcendent beyond the universal.
  • The path of the ancient rishis which was to surrender the egoistic consciousness and merge into the transcent and universal to experience the all pervasive equal delight in all becoming.


The delight of existence is involved in matter in the same way consciousness and force and life and mind are. At first it emerges only a little and expresses itself in subconscious forms as the will to be and urge for survival. In egoistic man, it expresses as pleasure and pain, joy and suffering, on a parallel with the expression of consciousness as mind's knowledge and ignorance and expression of a limited force in the divided being. Overcoming ego and universalizing, consciousness, force, being and ananda all reveal themselves in their full plentitude as Satchidananda.

Divine Maya

Process of creation

  • All creation is a self-manifestation of form by a creative force of self-being.
  • The artist conceives within himself and manifests his conception as a work of art
  • The statesman or thinker manifests his own consciousness in a work in life or thought
  • The seed manifests its latent force as form of tree.
  • Always the force labors to manifest the form with which it is charged.
  • The creator, the force of consciousness and the form of creation are in all cases one. It is self-manifestation.
  • The motive is the play or delight of creation. What it produces is a projected form of itself.
  • One existence, one force, one delight manifests itself in the world at various points saying ‘this is I' as a play of self-formation.
  • All being and force in the world labors to manifest its potential in form and to enlarge and extend that form as far as possible and have the delight of the infinite enlargement and manifestation.

Goal of creation is completeness

  • All things try to complete themselves in existence, consciousness, force and being.
  • Since completeness in finite being is not possible, the only answer is for the infinite within all things to emerge, so it may be fulfilled in its own infinity.

Triple movement

  • The world is a triple movement of satchidananda - an involution, evolution of a limited individual being and full manifestation of the infinite in and through the individual.

Upanishads: Maya: Energy of the Absolute (XII.38)

Parabrahman has manifested Maya as a power for formation.

How can the Omniscient create beings that are ignorant or things that are unreal?

  • How can the real create worlds or beings or things that are unreal?
  • How can the Absolute manifest a world of beings out of itself which are yet ignorance of their origin or not possessed of the Absolute's knowledge?
  • This is a known phenomenon in human existence.
  • Our dreams are unreal in the gross plane, yet they have full reality to our dream consciousness and even may depict real events in the past or future and have a real bearing on our actions, yet they are not really in the gross plane.
  • So also, a mirage is unreal yet we may perceive it as real even when we know it to be a mirage.
  • We know that the world is heliocentric yet our senses tell us it is geocentric and we live practically as though the latter were true, even when we know it is not.
  • This proves that it is possible for Consciousness to assume a dual mode-to know the truth and yet live in a consciousness as if it were not true.
  • The same is true when we walk on the earth as though we were vertical, knowing full well we are probably horizontal or even upside down.

The action of the human imagination is a direct parallel to the creative action of the Absolute through Maya

  • The human imagination continuously throws up unreal images which we accept as real with in their own content.
  • The images emerge from a causal plane of infinite possibilities first as thoughts in the subtle plane and then manifest through words and pictures in the gross plane.
  • Even when the artist dies, these images may live on and assume a life of their own and be very real to us as inspirations for our life.
  • Even when the words used to describe them are gone, they live on as personalities in our minds-real to us even when we know them to be unreal.
  • Who creates in Shakespeare? It is Parabrahman.
  • The process of human creation by imagination is identical to the process by which Parabrahman creates the worlds.

Parabrahman's creations are gross, imagination's are subtle

  • Only one difference
  • There is one instance in which the human imagination creates something gross-a dying vitality in extreme suffering by an act of will can create a visual apparition or sound that is grossly real.
  • This is a foreshadow of a power of material creation which humanity may possess in future.

What is the purpose of this creation by Parabrahman?

  • Imagination is outside purpose-because she is inherent energy of ananda, not energy of some teleological master workman.
  • Like all creation, human and divine, it is for the delight of self-expression.

Maya and mind

  • Satchidananda creates the world through Maya. How do we see maya in our mind? Man's running thoughts are the infinite possibilities of satchidananda expressing chaotically.
  • How is order created out of chaos in the mind

Lower: The external force comes and stops man from his running thoughts, forces him to respond and execute. This is the choice made by pressure from outside, from life, from below. He is energized from below by life and therefore the energy is limited.

Higher: By an inner decision that comes out of silence. When he silence he chooses a course of action and takes it, success will be infinitely greater. All men of great success have this calm, single minded one-pointed capacity for choice in their minds. This is the power of maya acting in the mind-the choice made in silence. It comes from above. He is energized from above and therefore the energy is far greater.

Supermind: Higher still, it can be done from supermind. Start from inside in silence. Take the other man's point of view, which is the supramental faculty in you, the energy released is enormous. Achievements are monumental.

  • When man is unconscious, this is how all successful men accomplish. The small man focuses his mind and energies for accomplishment due to external pressure, the great man does it by inner CHOICE.
  • The role maya plays in selection in creation above, is exercised by silence in the mind of great man, especially when he takes the other man's point of view.
  • This releases the greatest energy. When that energy is organized by the mind it becomes extraordinary accomplishment.

Application to Human Choice

  • When life opens up and presents an opportunity,

The small man closes and runs away.

The better man responds to the external pressure or situation.

The great man chooses an ideal in the opportunity, chooses to use the opportunity for realizing a higher possibility in it, takes the other man's point of view in mental silence, organizes the enormous energies that are unleashed breaking the habits of tradition. This leads to unfailing human choice.

  • Normally when man accepts an opportunity, he acts with his normal physical, vital and mental energies, motives, propensities pressed by the external force of life. He responds

From outside from life

From selfishness in mind

From tradition, old habits of personality and society-from matter

  • Exercising human choice man can do better-he can become an enormous and unfailing success. How does it differ from the normal man and those who refuse the opportunity?
  • How should man act to seize the opportunities of the millennium? The higher choice is made

Maya -- From inside - so the maya of creation can act in you. Act on the inner choice not the external circumstance. In silence.

Supermind - From another man's point of view, instead of selfishly, releasing enormous energy.

Freshly discarding the habits of tradition

Involution and Evolution

Sat perceiving itself as object creates spiritual substance.

Consciousness creates space (objective extension of consciousness) and time (subjective extension of consciousness).

Mind sensing Sat creates material substance out of spiritual substance. Sat sensing itself as object in space and time through mind creates Material substance-the involution.

Then what of ananda? Ananda seeking to discover itself in matter results in the evolution. If matter expresses beauty, love and joy of ananda the evolution will be complete.

The objective form of ananda is Endlessness: Endlessness in space is Infinity. Endless in time is Eternity or Immortality. Endlessness in action is Freedom. All these are the terms of the infinite being enjoying the infinite delight that is the experience of being without limits. Being without limits is ananda.

Analogy to Power of Accomplishment in Society

Society as a whole is SAT. Infinite being.

All that remains as latent potential to be manifest later by the society and all that is there is the past that has been withdrawn, we can call its Non-Being or unmanifest potential. The society like SAT just is.

When society wants to project its consciousness-force as idea and will, it needs an instrumentation that can represent and speak for the whole. That is the government. The power of government derives from that of Society and when for any reason society withdraws its consent, government falls or disappears.

Government acts through the promulgation of policies, rules, laws, which are the translation of the infinite power and will of the society vested in it into mechanical forces that apply themselves in different areas and assume a life of their own. Only that at any time the power that created them can withdraw them. These are like the laws of nature promulgated by the Parabrahman.

Government divides itself into many departments and levels down to the individual officer in a rural locale, who has the full power and authority of the government behind his every decision.


Definition of Life

  • Material forces coming in contact create forms of force. The force associated with each form becomes associated (identified) with the form as a will for the formation and growth of the form. Through contact and sensation of form of force with form of force, the force associated with the form emerges more and more to the surface, becomes more conscious, comes to the surface as sensation, animation, movement and eventually reveals self-conscious awareness. This is the emergence of life in matter. Life is the same material force of the form associated as an active will for the development of the form.
  • The positive and negative attractions within the atom is an expression of the life principle of attraction and repulsion, liking and disliking in higher forms of life.

Living and enjoying develops mind

  • The more sensation of life, the greater the stimulus to the development of thought.
  • The more man lives, experiences, greater the development of mind. If man enjoys more, his mind develops more.
  • The greater the development of mind, the greater the mastery by mind through life over the physical. Mental sensation is thought.
  • Thought its mental response to the senses, which are of life, which is matter. Mind responding to the matter that comes to it through life is thought.
  • On the higher side, mind is also capable of thinking on its own without relation to life.

Summary of Mind, Life and Matter

The indivisible omnipotent, omniscient One, Satchidananda, Parabrahman, Conscious Being, chooses to manifest itself for the delight of self-expression, self-discovery and evolution. Its challenge is to conceal itself from itself, to create a world of finite creatures that lack the self-consciousness and power of their creator. Since it alone exists, it must create a world out of itself.

Maya is the Infinite's power of self-limitation in form, delimitation, measuring itself out. All creation is a self-envisioning, an imaging or imagining by the One of a real idea which it manifests out of its own being and substance within itself. In the higher Maya, all forms are conscious forms of the infinite, one with it both in essence and in consciousness. All delimitation takes place within the context of oneness. Through comprehensive supermind, Conscious Being as subject perceives itself as object within itself and one with it and the Infinite. Through apprehending supermind, Conscious Being as subject perceives itself as object outwardly separate but inwardly one with itself and all and the infinite. Supermind distinguishes and differentiates without division. This is the status of Divine Mind. It possesses the mind's characteristic power of perceiving the whole in terms of many parts and subdividing the parts infinitely. But simultaneously it retains the knowledge of the whole of which the parts of only representations and expressions.

In the lower expression of maya, mind loses the perception of oneness. Conscious Being is divided into an infinite number of parts, of beings, of centers of consciousness, viewpoints. The conscious being identifies itself with each of these separate viewpoints and looks out from each to view the world and itself from a separate vantage. On the surface it has lost awareness and perception of its origin, of oneness, of power. It has limited its consciousness to that of a single surface perspective. It has fallen into Ignorance of the whole and its own true reality.

Conscious being is also force. As mind divides the consciousness into millions of separate viewpoints, it divides the force into millions of separate forces. Force remains one. But that force identifies itself with these millions separate viewpoints and makes them standpoints of force. It seeks to establish, preserve, and grow each separate center of that force.

Force seeking to form and support a center of function acquires a form of force. This force is only divided conscious force. The interaction of forms of force generates sensations-it releases spurts of consciousness that are inherent in the force. Mind perceives the forms of force through these sensations as material substance, Matter.

The identification of the Conscious Being with limited viewpoints, standpoints and forms of itself, the concentration of awareness and force in the separate identity of each form and the seeking to preserve and develop each form as distinct from others is the origin of ego. This expresses as the attraction and repulsion of form to form according to whether the contact enhances or threatens the existence and growth of the form. The essence of ego can be seen even in the attraction and repulsion of the subatomic particles in matter. It becomes the divided, limited/finite, ego living in time in the surface mind. This is the involution.

In the evolution, the contact of form of force with form of force releases sensations and gradually awakes consciousness in each form. As the consciousness force emerges, the form evolves and acquires characteristics appropriate to express the inherent conscious force. It acquires the capacity for response to stimuli, mobility, perception, and adaptation that we see in lower and higher life forms. Eventually the emerging consciousness reaches the stage of mental self-awareness we find in man. In the animal, external contacts generate nervous sensations. In man, the sensations also stimulates conscious thoughts.

As each higher power evolves out of the lower, it also acts on the lower from which it has emerged. Each ascent is followed by a descent. Life makes matter animate. Mind applies its capacities to observe, understand and organize life and matter. Mind does this from perspective of its own individual viewpoint, standpoint and form, i.e. ego. Therefore, its knowledge is limited to the awareness of the individual viewpoint. Its force is limited to that of an individual standpoint of the infinite Force which meets itself in millions of other infinite forces that express the same Force. It is limited by identification with its specific form of force, a mortal physical body. What we call mind in us is the emergence of conscious sensation and thought on the surface, ignorant of the subconscious and superconscient ranges of awareness that are subliminal to our surface experience.

For mind to acquire true knowledge and power and to discover the true freedom of the infinite, immortal being of delight of which it is an instrument, it has to detach itself from its identification with the body, the limited selfish struggling force of life and the narrow selfish viewpoint of ego in order to discover the Oneness of which it is an expression, which is its own true being. This it can only do by moving from the surface to the depth, from the ego to discover the psychic.

Through the entire involution and evolution, the Conscious Being remains behind and within matter, life and mind guiding and determining the process through millions of points of perception, force and action. At the point where the subconscious involved force emerges into consciousness, the cumulative experiences of the emerging conscious individual on the surface gradually coalesce as a conscious psychic center in the subliminal.

Action Based on the Central Perspective

  1. Having knowledge of the facts in the book without the central perspective is like being a talented mechanic, who for all his lacks the knowledge of the engineer.
  2. The central theme of Life Divine is that the perfection can be achieved not only above but here too and that is the will of the Supreme. [The truth and knowledge should be expressed in life.] This can be done when the Being which behind comes to the surface and expresses itself through the force on the surface. The One that is below the surface must be discovered in the Many that is one the surface and the Many must be discovered in the One below. God and Nature must be discovered in each other.
  3. This can be done by acquiring the central value, which is of the whole. Acquiring the skill, attitude and opinion is not enough, since they are of the part. Acquire all the facts, data, (components of knowledge given in the book) without missing anything. Acquire the perspective that there is a One behind the Many and the Many exist in the One. See all the facts in the light of the perspective and the perspective in the light of the facts. When that knowledge is complete and perfect, it acquires the Power at the physical level and cannot wait to express itself for accomplishment. At the point it acts, life responds. When this knowledge acts, it abridges time. Converts difficulties into opportunities.
  4. When accomplishment comes, the first inevitable response is to use the results to aggrandize the ego, which stops the work at the very first step. Without dissolving ego, if you acquire power, ego will invariably use it. Whenever any energy is received, one's first impulse is to express it through one's old habits. Through ego. That is why he says first dissolve ego.
  5. This is a knowledge and power to complete any work and make life respond. This is what we can acquire. It is a matter of Choice.
  6. The knowledge He has given is intended for action to accomplish and achieve perfection in the physical world for action is the central will of the One and purpose of the manifestation.
  7. The knowledge he gives is what earth would normally acquire in 30,000 years.

Application to Development Theory

  • The more sensation of life, the greater the stimulus to the development of thought.
  • The more man lives, experiences, greater the development of mind. If man enjoys more, his mind develops more.

How can man live more actively so as to become mentalized?

  • By greater movements and more fresh movements.

Rural Life in Early Agricultural Phase:

Rural life lacks freshness. It falls in a rut and any new movement is a threat to him. It has a very slow rhythm of the seasons of production. Life us subordinated to the organization of production and outside that life is minimal.

Urban Life in Early Agricultural Phase:

  • Urban life has more movements and more fresh ones with greater pace, intensity and frequency. This helps the development of mind. In the town there are at least a dozen movements. Production comes from the rural area and urban man is involved mainly with distribution, governance, trade, communication, transportation, administration, education, entertainment, etc. As rural life has led to the organization of production, urban life has led to new forms of organizations for marketing, law, order, administration, etc. Life is more active, fast and complex. The greater sensation leads to the development of mind and the greater the application of mind to develop the physical life and organization of society.
  • Subsequently urban development led to higher orders of production and a wide range of commercial, religious, entertainment, and other activities.

National thought and mentality

  • If the country, represents the physical. Then the national life or society generates through its experience, its life, the national thought. The national thought is determined by how the nation works.
  • The life movements and experience of the nation becomes its thought, its mentality.
  • Thought gives rise to form and organization.
  • That thought is represented by a few mental persons.
  • Parliament takes the work of the nation and formulates thoughts for law-the knowledge of power. The supreme court exercises the power to adjudicate law.

100 people

  • The nation's leadership and institutions do not fully represent the accumulated experience of the nation as knowledge. The knowledge the nation has acquired-life, physical, religious-is not represented by any government institutions. In future such a body may come into existence to fully represent and enshrine the entire knowledge of the nation drawn from its experience.
  • This knowledge is enshrined in several individuals, but not national organizations. There knowledge-psychological knowledge, life knowledge, spiritual knowledge--is available only to the people around them, but it is not organized.
  • As the parliament is the repository of national power, a body of 100 men can be a repository of national knowledge. This knowledge is of three levels-mental, physical-life knowledge, or a knowledge that goes to the physical level which is power expressed in the body. 100 people acquiring and expressing the higher knowledge from above can generate wealth and power equivalent to that of an entire nation.
  • Mental knowledge does not go to the physical. It does not go to the body. This is a knowledge from above that can not only go to the physical but the power to transform the physical body and substance and transform the earth.
  • Its lesser version is power and wealth. We are now trying to acquire that knowledge in no.1. When this knowledge is fully acquired in number 3, it becomes powerful enough to produce as much wealth as the richest man on earth. When it goes to no. 6, it was tremendous power to produce any amount of wealth in the world, the world's wealth.
  • This knowledge comes from above. To acquire power, it must be lived. It will become the world government.
  • Even the knowledge you already have, if exercised with faith and conviction, is enough to earn a few billion dollars.
  • More valuable, would be to establish the intellectual leadership of the world, a symbolic world government.
  • Its basis is total perfect harmony. As you are in harmony with yourself. It should be positive, capable of producing results in everything it does, and have a wider view of the whole.
  • The organizations of the past were created to take and those that came after to give and take.

Supermind the Creator

  • In mind thought and reality are separate and distinct. In supermind, the being that conceives, the real idea (consciousness) and the force for realization are all one and the same, so there is an instantaneous and total power for realization. Supermind is omnipresent being, omniscient consciousness, omnipotent will.

Supreme Truth Consciousness

Comprehending Supermind

  • The knowledge, knower and known are one. There is no act of perception. It is knowledge by identity in being outside time.
  • There is no subjective extension in Time because all possibilities are simultaneously present-past, present, future-without the subject positioning itself at any particular point in the flow and observing what came before or what comes after as a movement. There is no movement of consciousness. All is.
  • There is no objective extension in Space because all possibilities exist without the subject positioning itself at any particular point in relation to substance. Consciousness is equably distributed everywhere.
  • It is like the poet's imagination that holds all possible characters and events simultaneously in potential in its vision.

Apprehending Supermind

  • Conscious being perceives itself as force of consciousness issuing out of itself and forming objects out of itself and returning back to itself.
  • From this act, all division proceeds, for it creates the distinction between knower, knowledge and known, even though all three are the same and known to be the same Being at this level. Purusha becomes distinct from Prakriti.
  • With the act of perception comes the creation of subjective experience in Time, since there is change of perception.
  • Conscious being issues out to create form and imbues each form with its force and with its own center of awareness. Consciousness becomes unequally distributed and force becomes multiply distributed. This unequal and multiple distribution gives rise to the perception of space, since each center of consciousness can view the others from its own viewpoint, even though the sense of oneness remains.


Gradations of Harmony:

  • Unity in Sat, Union in Chit, Harmony in Supermind, Reconciliation in higher mind, Division in Mind, Conflict in vital, Contradiction in physical.
  • True harmony exists in Supermind because all movements of Real Idea originate from here and each movement is conceived as part of a harmonious whole which exists below the surface even when the movement expresses through a conflict of forces.
  • We perceive that an interaction or conflict of forces give rise to a result and call the conflict a Cause. The real cause is not the conflict but the Real Idea which gives rise to a succession of events, each following the other but none the real cause or result of the other.
  • The tree does not give rise to the seed or the seed to the tree. The tree is self contained as real idea in the unmanifest being of the seed.
  • Consciousness and force are one, Knowledge and Will are one.
  • Inconscient is universal conscious being, inconscient only to our perception.

Analogy to Society

  • Society is Sat
  • President or PM is Jivatman
  • Individual voter is the ego.
  • The government is the creation of the society, but once created it sees itself as separate from the society and serving its own purposes. So too the administration is created by the government but once created views itself as separate from the government. Each dept of administration is the same.
  • The family is a creation of the society but sees itself as separate. The individual is the creation of the family but sees himself as separate.
  • Each subsequent creation identifies only with its smaller, more limited being and sees itself as separate and opposed to the larger whole.
  • The society views the individual as its least significant part.
  • Imagine a society that reverses this process. Each smaller whole is conscious of belonging to a larger whole and dedicated to serving it and expressing its potentials as fully as possible. The govt strives to realize the full potential of the society, the administration to execute the full potential of the government's goals, the individual to realize the full potential as an individual that the society makes possible to it.


  • Truth is the objective expression of Being, Sat. Truth as an objective status exists by itself. So does Being, Sat. Other things exist by virtue of these. That which is self-existent in being and does not depend on anything else for its existence.
  • Consciousness and ananda do not exist independent of Being.
  • Supermind is the nature of satchidananda. Supermind does not exist by itself. It exists as an expression of satchidananda which is its truth.
