This Conscious Being is the Truth of Supermind and transcends the Universe. All is Brahman. Matter is substance of the one conscious-being phenomenally divided within itself by the action of the universal Mind. We have been able to deduce consistently the whole phenomenon of the universe from the action of Mind. Vedas express what Supermind is. Mind knows earth goes around the sun, senses persist that sun goes round the earth. Firstly, ours is not an ethical world. Life is Force, Force is Power, Power is will, Will is the working of the Master Consciousness, the Satchidananda.*. Gulf is deceptive. As we cannot think out the Absolute in itself we must admit Shiva and Kali and seek to know what is Time and Space with regard to Existence.*. Still this separateness is founded on an implicit underlying unity. As the supramental existence is unrelated to the life in the body, a doubt rises as to whether it is possible on earth. The Consciousness is in the nature of the Will. *, Supermind has all poises. If mind is not limited, cosmos will only be a Being like a poet. 240. Therefore it could not have created the universe. Denial, The Two Negations - The Refusal of the Ignorance The divided mortal mind is the parent of ignorance.*. This exists in the secondary power of creative knowledge where knowledge centralises itself and stands back to observe its works. Nothing here seeks, no mental construction.

Time and Space are that one Conscious-Being viewing itself in extension, subjectively as Time and objectively as Space.*. So long as Mind is not separated from Supermind it supports not perversions but the various workings of the Universal Truth. Impersonality.*. The central circumstance of this cosmic process is the dividing faculty of Mind obscured by ignorance. This is hunger and conscious desire, the first seed of mind. Now mind is passive to Supramental action. Whatever order there is, it must be an unbinding order such as might be evolved by Supermind.

The perfect human soul must be able to move into Non-Existence without losing hold of Existence. A mind subject to its own play will create that limitation. The link is the Supermind. 152. Because of Matter life is stricken with pain and death. *, It conceives, perceives, senses, all existences as soul-forms of the One, each having its own being in One, its own standpoint inthe One, its own relationship with all other existences, but dependent on the One, as conscious form of Him in His owninfinity. The world is an image of divine creation. In Man the subconscious sensation long after their occurrence, can be brought up to the surface memory. Without Vidya, Avidya is a disorder of Ignorance. The solution has to be sought by the mind in life. The original cause is the individual soul's exclusive concentration.*. *, The conscious Force presents the workings of its force to its consciousness as forms of its own being. Mental cognition can arrive at total comprehensiveness, but to organise it in life and action is beyond its power.*. Death, desire and incapacity are the terms Darwinian theory gave the world as the survival of the fittest. Matter is such a force moulded as it is by contacts in Matter to which mind involved in material brain gives response.*. This principle is Satchidananda and is a movement which is its form of energy and instrument of cosmic creation. THIS IS INDIVIDUAL DIVINE OR JIVATMAN as distinguished from the universal Divine. It is desire sense, and desire will in animals. The concealed subliminal part is in touch with the universality. There is a possession again of the individual of the life of others as his own and of all that it has to give him as his own. 157. A disciplined intellect, disciplined by the touch of Earth, is necessary. The Seers said Force is inherent in Existence. It also contains other powers of involution, envelopment, making explicit. 106. Universe creates the Individual by its self-concentration to aspire through him.

Delight of being trying to discover itself as delight of becoming is common to all. The creation of evil and suffering cannot be explained by a theory of extra cosmic God because Satchidananda is one without a second. 229. Chapter 19 - Life As a result, it could be affirmed that the one, all-pervading Life or dynamic energy will outlive the universe. A new richer self-fulfillment is in order. Reducing all phenomenon to movement, we get the indefinable. This sleep or absorption divides the worker force from its source of work in the superconscient knowledge. 127. It is not knowable by thought. These discords are best solved by taking the discords further, by cutting away and final severance. A power of communication remains. Motion of Matter in Space, Motion of Change in Time are the condition of Existence. 96. The universe exists only in or for the Consciousness that observes and has no independent reality. The Truth of things is self-existent, not dependent on manifestation. Assuming also the conscious being is under the control of Shakti, it cannot be Supreme. World is not the essential truth of That. The WHY remains. The world at each level contains the other levels. These are subordinate but important details. *, Will in Man is for unending life, knowledge and power.*. the Ascetic It is above we must seek this perfection. Impersonality, universality are others.

Man, and Nature, The Evolutionary Process - Ascent The Divine Consciousness threw into operation the Idea of divided representation -- duality. This absolute exceeds forms, quality, quantity etc. *  To reverse it one must find the universal and the Transcendent. That way mind arrives at a formless Vast, not the real spaceless infinite. Space is a psychological phenomenon; Time too.*. The Life Divine -- A Study Guide Chapter 12 - The Origin of the Ignorance ", This boundless Movement does not regard us unimportant.

This essence of will and desire are pervasive in nature. *, It is possible that Man, for this purpose, can develop divine mind, divine life and divine body. Though Life is Power, individual life cannot become master of the world because of its limitations of Death, Desire and Incapacity. The Will applies itself to work.

Only the extension of ourconsciousness will help settle the ancient quarrel between Matter andSpirit. 202. The very existence of Supermind points back to Something beyond unity and multiplicity.*. With John Genke, Joan Pape. *, It conceives, perceives, senses all existences in their individuality, in their separate standpoint of living as theindividual Divine, each with the One and Supreme dwellingin it.*. Even the mental, psychic energies in the body do not perish. Existence, consciousness and bliss cannot express in a certain order without the Supermind. 150.

A primary reconciliation is there in Cosmic Consciousness where Matter is seen as the body of the Spirit, Spirit as the essence of Matter, Mind and Life as instruments of Conscious Being. One fundamental necessity of nature is to seek infinite experience in finite form. In the Supermind this would be a single play. Infinite consciousness can only produce infinite results. the Timeless and Spaceless is aware of itself in a spiritually self-conceptive self-extension as the basis of all existence. In everything that is, dwells the conscious force which exists by virtue of that conscious force; so also in everything that is there is the delight of existence and it exists by virtue of that delight. The connection can be retained.*. Even this is not free from error. Life acts as an instrumental energy of Mind. *, Within limits, the dead form can be revived.*.

It uses mind's subordinate action of infinite knowledge. Vedic formula of Earth represents this view. *, Life is not defeated, but uses death as a device to continue. This inconscience and blind Energy are the Consciousness of Matter and the accomplished type of material living. As there are finer ranges of subliminal, the subconscient behind the mind, there are finer ranges behind the gross body.*. Mind even at its height acts through division. This separated mind perceives only the particular, not the Universal. 18. The Life Divine Lyrics: The love divine / Will always shine / Although we think / (of eye and mind?) Here the Force is Consciousness of Being working itself out without ceasing to be consciousness. The later impatience sought the One and denied the Many. Mind, Life and Matter are triply formulated energy -- Vedic Seers. Still the divine soul does not forfeit its unity. Universe feels its divine totality but does not possess it.

Light plunged into its own shadow has created material nature. *, It is not so easy for the body to reject pain.*. Will or Power proceeds out of tranquil Force. In Supermind Idea is not divorced from the will in the Idea, as the power of burning the light is not different from fire. Cosmic Consciousness is growingly recognised. * Recovering the right relations is the remedy. In all it is the same soul. Mind, Life and Matter are the triple energy triply formulated as seen by the Vedic Seers. It comprehends all things in being and static self-awareness, subjective, timeless, spaceless, in dynamic knowledge and governs their objective self-embodiment in Space and Time. There is an ascending series of substance and finer bodies behind the gross body. *, The subliminal physicality is in touch with the universal force formation of Cosmic Matter. To split the Universe as Self and Not-Self is not the true Adwaita. * No longer can we speak of substance. Logic does not help solve the problem.

Desire should change into desire for the Infinite. *, Essence of this Law is self-development of truth, ie. Recognition of Matter as the Divine garb alone can complete theeternal Spirit and a life based on it. This is the apprehending Truth Consciousness.*. Mind, Life and Matter are subordinate powers of Supermind, Consciousness and Existence. Therefore we may suppose a Superconscient. This is rational and we can accept it. They say Mind creates matter through thought. Wherever cosmos is, one principle is not enough for manifestation. At the gates of the Transcendent stands the Spirit, the pure Self of the Advaitins, the inactive Brahman, the transcendent Silence. For us they are opposites, or each claims superiority. We must find a real comprehensive solution which contains Matter and Spirit happily. When the rhythm of unity is disturbed once, mind always returns to it more fully by exclusive methods. Therefore Mind is mistaken for the cause of the Universe and for the whole of the divine Maya. One cycle of terrestrial evolution need not exhaust the potentialities of mind etc. Mind, Life and Matter are aspects of higher principles working in subjection to Ignorance. *, The Existence that manifests in the Force is a conscious Being. Ignorance is only distortion. Philosophies are noumenal and the idealistic.

Its highest perfection is the world pervading Vishnu. Pleasure can become pain and vice versa because they are one at bottom. Pain and grief emerge from a background other than themselves whereas Delight does not depend upon a cause but emerges from the background of all backgrounds. Since Life is an energy of His force, delight must be the secret of its movements. These other selves are identical with him in being, but different in relations. 80.

So, the world beyond the material plane must be a world based on a force of Desire, not upon an inconscient will taking upon itself the form of material force. The difficulty vanishes if we conceive of mind as an instrument of analysis, not of essential knowledge. * Avidya is the great Ignorance which starts from multiplicity as the fundamental reality. So, material force is only energy-form of Mind. 51. * Therefore it is predetermined in its self-knowledge and at every moment in its self-working. *, The Force that builds the world is a Conscious Force. Life can be understood only as the end operation of Conscious- Force. It holds back this, advances That, but according to its own preconceived Idea-Will. What lies beyond the highest term of those grades, what is there between Matter and Spirit. Here the subject becomes its own object.*. 87.
