set forth in admirable order and detail

20

the theme if the present interpreter be

21
00:01:05,590 –> 00:01:08,049
right is the great regeneration the

22
00:01:08,049 –> 00:01:09,970
burst of a spiritual from the psychical

23
00:01:09,970 –> 00:01:12,610
man the same theme which Paul so wisely

24
00:01:12,610 –> 00:01:14,590
and eloquently set forth in writing to

25
00:01:14,590 –> 00:01:16,930
his disciples in Corinth the theme of

26
00:01:16,930 –> 00:01:21,040
all mystics in all lands we think of

27
00:01:21,040 –> 00:01:22,720
ourselves is living a purely physical

28
00:01:22,720 –> 00:01:25,119
life and these material bodies of ours

29
00:01:25,119 –> 00:01:28,060
in reality we have gone far indeed from

30
00:01:28,060 –> 00:01:31,090
pure physical life for ages our life has

31
00:01:31,090 –> 00:01:33,850
been psychical we have been centered and

32
00:01:33,850 –> 00:01:37,030
immersed in the psychic nature some of

33
00:01:37,030 –> 00:01:38,469
the schools of India say that the

34
00:01:38,469 –> 00:01:40,479
psychic nature is as it were a

35
00:01:40,479 –> 00:01:43,060
looking-glass wherein are mirrored the

36
00:01:43,060 –> 00:01:45,579
things seen by the physical eyes unheard

37
00:01:45,579 –> 00:01:48,850
by the physical ears but this is a magic

38
00:01:48,850 –> 00:01:51,670
mirror the images remain and take a

39
00:01:51,670 –> 00:01:54,070
certain life of their own thus within

40
00:01:54,070 –> 00:01:55,659
this psychic realm of our life there

41
00:01:55,659 –> 00:01:57,670
grows up in imaged worlds wherein we

42
00:01:57,670 –> 00:02:00,130
dwell a world of the images of things

43
00:02:00,130 –> 00:02:02,320
seen and heard and therefore a world of

44
00:02:02,320 –> 00:02:04,899
memories a world also of hopes and

45
00:02:04,899 –> 00:02:09,399
desires of fears and regrets mental life

46
00:02:09,399 –> 00:02:11,800
grows up among these images built on a

47
00:02:11,800 –> 00:02:13,900
measuring and comparing on the

48
00:02:13,900 –> 00:02:15,430
messin of images together into general

49
00:02:15,430 –> 00:02:18,099
ideas on the abstraction of new notions

50
00:02:18,099 –> 00:02:20,769
and images from these til a new world is

51
00:02:20,769 –> 00:02:23,079
built up within full of desires and

52
00:02:23,079 –> 00:02:27,269
hates ambition Envy longing speculation

53
00:02:27,269 –> 00:02:32,650
curiosity self will self-interest the

54
00:02:32,650 –> 00:02:34,390
teaching of the East is that all these

55
00:02:34,390 –> 00:02:36,579
are true powers overlaid by false

56
00:02:36,579 –> 00:02:39,269
desires that though a manifestation

57
00:02:39,269 –> 00:02:42,849
psychical Berenice and spiritual the

58
00:02:42,849 –> 00:02:45,189
psychical man is the veil and prophecy

59
00:02:45,189 –> 00:02:48,579
of a spiritual man the purpose of life

60
00:02:48,579 –> 00:02:51,280
therefore is a realizing of that

61
00:02:51,280 –> 00:02:53,680
prophecy the unveiling of the immortal

62
00:02:53,680 –> 00:02:56,260
man the burst of a spiritual from the

63
00:02:56,260 –> 00:02:58,480
psychical whereby we enter our divine

64
00:02:58,480 –> 00:03:00,750
inheritance and come to inhabit eternity

65
00:03:00,750 –> 00:03:03,970
this is indeed salvation the purpose of

66
00:03:03,970 –> 00:03:08,379
all true religion in all times Patanjali

67
00:03:08,379 –> 00:03:10,569
has in mind the spiritual man to be born

68
00:03:10,569 –> 00:03:13,720
from the psychical his purpose is to set

69
00:03:13,720 –> 00:03:15,790
in order the practical means for the

70
00:03:15,790 –> 00:03:18,370
unveiling and regeneration and to

71
00:03:18,370 –> 00:03:20,230
indicate the fruit the glory and the

72
00:03:20,230 –> 00:03:23,349
power of that new birth through the

73
00:03:23,349 –> 00:03:25,540
sutras of the first book Patanjali is

74
00:03:25,540 –> 00:03:27,310
concerned with the first great problem

75
00:03:27,310 –> 00:03:30,040
the emergence of the spiritual man from

76
00:03:30,040 –> 00:03:31,930
the veils and meshes of the psychic

77
00:03:31,930 –> 00:03:34,480
nature the moods and vest errs of the

78
00:03:34,480 –> 00:03:37,629
mental and emotional man later will come

79
00:03:37,629 –> 00:03:38,859
the consideration of the nature and

80
00:03:38,859 –> 00:03:40,930
powers of the spiritual man once he

81
00:03:40,930 –> 00:03:42,849
stands clear of the psychic veils and

82
00:03:42,849 –> 00:03:45,040
trammels and a view of the realms in

83
00:03:45,040 –> 00:03:47,139
which these new spiritual powers are to

84
00:03:47,139 –> 00:03:50,680
be revealed at this point may come a

85
00:03:50,680 –> 00:03:53,290
word of explanation I haven’t asked why

86
00:03:53,290 –> 00:03:55,780
I use the word sutras for these rules of

87
00:03:55,780 –> 00:03:58,239
Patanjali system when the word aphorism

88
00:03:58,239 –> 00:03:59,440
has been connected with them in our

89
00:03:59,440 –> 00:04:02,530
minds for a generation the reason is

90
00:04:02,530 –> 00:04:06,129
this the name aphorism suggests to me at

91
00:04:06,129 –> 00:04:08,409
least a pithy sentence a very general

92
00:04:08,409 –> 00:04:11,019
application a piece of proverbial wisdom

93
00:04:11,019 –> 00:04:12,699
that may be quoted in a good many sets

94
00:04:12,699 –> 00:04:15,010
of circumstances and which will almost

95
00:04:15,010 –> 00:04:16,988
bear on its face the evidence of its

96
00:04:16,988 –> 00:04:20,048
truth but with a Sutra the case is

97
00:04:20,048 –> 00:04:22,479
different it comes from the same root as

98
00:04:22,479 –> 00:04:25,620
the word so and means indeed a thread

99
00:04:25,620 –> 00:04:28,040
suggesting therefore a

100
00:04:28,040 –> 00:04:31,220
consecutive chain of arguments not only

101
00:04:31,220 –> 00:04:33,259
has each sutra a definite place in the

102
00:04:33,259 –> 00:04:35,930
system but further taken out of this

103
00:04:35,930 –> 00:04:37,850
place it will be almost meaningless and

104
00:04:37,850 –> 00:04:41,539
will by no means be self-evident so I

105
00:04:41,539 –> 00:04:43,100
have thought best to adhere to the

106
00:04:43,100 –> 00:04:45,530
original word the Sutras of Patanjali

107
00:04:45,530 –> 00:04:47,440
are as closely knit together as

108
00:04:47,440 –> 00:04:49,669
dependent on each other as the

109
00:04:49,669 –> 00:04:51,979
propositions of Euclid and can no more

110
00:04:51,979 –> 00:04:55,190
be taken out of their proper setting in

111
00:04:55,190 –> 00:04:57,110
the second part of the first book the

112
00:04:57,110 –> 00:04:58,460
problem of the emergence of the

113
00:04:58,460 –> 00:05:00,889
spiritual man is further dealt with we

114
00:05:00,889 –> 00:05:02,270
are led to the consideration of the

115
00:05:02,270 –> 00:05:04,370
barriers to his emergence of the

116
00:05:04,370 –> 00:05:06,740
overcoming other barriers and as certain

117
00:05:06,740 –> 00:05:09,020
steps and stages in the ascent from the

118
00:05:09,020 –> 00:05:10,760
ordinary consciousness of practical life

119
00:05:10,760 –> 00:05:13,880

of the versatile psychic nature the goal

153
00:07:17,940 –> 00:07:19,349
is the full consciousness of the

154
00:07:19,349 –> 00:07:21,690
spiritual man illumined by the divine

155
00:07:21,690 –> 00:07:24,599
light nothing except the obdurate

156
00:07:24,599 –> 00:07:26,669
resistance of the psychic nature keeps

157
00:07:26,669 –> 00:07:29,639
us back from the goal the psychical

158
00:07:29,639 –> 00:07:32,159
powers our spiritual powers run wild

159
00:07:32,159 –> 00:07:34,169
perverted drawn from their proper

160
00:07:34,169 –> 00:07:37,529
channel therefore our first task is to

161
00:07:37,529 –> 00:07:39,719
regain control of this perverted nature

162
00:07:39,719 –> 00:07:43,349
to chasten purify and restore the

163
00:07:43,349 –> 00:07:46,219
misplaced powers

164
00:07:47,520 –> 00:07:51,490
Sutra 3 then the seer comes to

165
00:07:51,490 –> 00:07:54,900
consciousness in his proper nature

166
00:07:55,110 –> 00:07:57,430
egotism is that the perversion of

167
00:07:57,430 –> 00:08:00,100
spiritual being ambition is the

168
00:08:00,100 –> 00:08:03,190
inversion of spiritual power passion is

169
00:08:03,190 –> 00:08:06,730
the distortion of love the mortal is the

170
00:08:06,730 –> 00:08:08,230
limitation of the immortal

171
00:08:08,230 –> 00:08:11,050
when these false images give place to

172
00:08:11,050 –> 00:08:13,900
true then the spiritual man stands forth

173
00:08:13,900 –> 00:08:15,760
luminous as the Sun when the clouds

174
00:08:15,760 –> 00:08:21,960
disperse Sutra for

175
00:08:21,960 –> 00:08:24,280
heretofore the seer has been in meshed

176
00:08:24,280 –> 00:08:28,650
in the activities of the psychic nature

177
00:08:29,100 –> 00:08:31,510
the power and life which are the

178
00:08:31,510 –> 00:08:33,130
heritage of the spiritual man have been

179
00:08:33,130 –> 00:08:35,229
caught and enmeshed in psychical

180
00:08:35,229 –> 00:08:38,349
activities instead of pure being in the

181
00:08:38,349 –> 00:08:40,929
divine there has been fretful combative

182
00:08:40,929 –> 00:08:43,830
egotism its hand against every man

183
00:08:43,830 –> 00:08:45,820
instead of the light of pure vision

184
00:08:45,820 –> 00:08:47,740
there have been Restless senses and

185
00:08:47,740 –> 00:08:49,200
imaginings

186
00:08:49,200 –> 00:08:51,910
instead of spiritual joy the undivided

187
00:08:51,910 –> 00:08:54,310
joy of pure being there has been

188
00:08:54,310 –> 00:08:57,970
self-indulgence of body and mind these

189
00:08:57,970 –> 00:09:00,460
are all real forces but distorted from

190
00:09:00,460 –> 00:09:01,800
their true nature and goal

191
00:09:01,800 –> 00:09:05,140
they must be extricated like gems from

192
00:09:05,140 –> 00:09:07,680
the matrix like the piss from the read

193
00:09:07,680 –> 00:09:11,670
steadily without destructive violence

194
00:09:11,670 –> 00:09:14,020
spiritual powers are to be drawn forth

195
00:09:14,020 –> 00:09:21,700
from the psychic meshes Sutra 5 the

196
00:09:21,700 –> 00:09:24,910
psychic activities are 5 their either

00:09:27,880 –> 00:09:34,930
hindrances see book 2 Sutra 3 the

199
00:09:34,930 –> 00:09:36,910
psychic nature is built up through the

200
00:09:36,910 –> 00:09:39,400
image making power the power which lies

201
00:09:39,400 –> 00:09:43,270
behind and dwells in mind pictures these

202
00:09:43,270 –> 00:09:45,160
pictures do not remain quiescent in the

203
00:09:45,160 –> 00:09:48,700
mind their kinetic Restless stimulating

204
00:09:48,700 –> 00:09:51,700
to new acts thus the mind image of an

205
00:09:51,700 –> 00:09:53,710
indulgence suggests and invites to a new

206
00:09:53,710 –> 00:09:56,170
indulgence the picture of past joy is

207
00:09:56,170 –> 00:09:59,530
framed in regrets or hopes and there is

208
00:09:59,530 –> 00:10:01,290
a ceaseless play of the desire

209
00:10:01,290 –> 00:10:03,420
to know to penetrate to the essence of

210
00:10:03,420 –> 00:10:06,839
things to classify this to bizzy’s

211
00:10:06,839 –> 00:10:09,050
itself ceaselessly with the mind images

212
00:10:09,050 –> 00:10:11,430
so that we may classify the activities

213
00:10:11,430 –> 00:10:16,430
of the psychic nature thus future six

214
00:10:16,430 –> 00:10:21,199
these activities are sound intellection

215
00:10:21,199 –> 00:10:27,589
unsound intellection predication sleep

216
00:10:27,589 –> 00:10:33,089
memory we have here a list of mental and

217
00:10:33,089 –> 00:10:35,490
emotional powers of powers that picture

218
00:10:35,490 –> 00:10:37,829
and observe and empowers a picture and

219
00:10:37,829 –> 00:10:41,009
feel but the power to know and feel is

220
00:10:41,009 –> 00:10:44,759
spiritual and immortal what is needed is

221
00:10:44,759 –> 00:10:46,889
not to destroy it but to raise it from

222
00:10:46,889 –> 00:10:50,569
the psychical to the spiritual realm

223
00:10:52,759 –> 00:10:57,180
Sutra 7 the elements of sound

224
00:10:57,180 –> 00:11:01,399
intellection are direct observation

225
00:11:01,399 –> 00:11:04,949
inductive reason and trustworthy

226
00:11:04,949 –> 00:11:10,470
testimony each of these is the spiritual

227
00:11:10,470 –> 00:11:13,829
power thinly veiled direct observation

228
00:11:13,829 –> 00:11:15,899
is the outermost form of the souls pure

229
00:11:15,899 –> 00:11:20,160

230
00:11:20,160 –> 00:11:21,779
great principles of continuity and

231
00:11:21,779 –> 00:11:24,329
correspondence and these on a supreme

232
00:11:24,329 –> 00:11:28,339
truth that all life is of the one

233
00:11:28,339 –> 00:11:31,380
trustworthy testimony the sharing of one

234
00:11:31,380 –> 00:11:34,620
soul in the wisdom of another rests on

235
00:11:34,620 –> 00:11:38,569
the ultimate oneness of all souls

236
00:11:40,160 –> 00:11:44,850
citrate unsound intellection is false

237
00:11:44,850 –> 00:11:47,310
understanding not resting on a

238
00:11:47,310 –> 00:11:50,930
perception of the true nature of things

239
00:11:51,680 –> 00:11:54,529
when the object is not truly perceived

240
00:11:54,529 –> 00:11:56,970
when the observation is inaccurate and

241
00:11:56,970 –> 00:12:00,120
faulty thought or reasoning based on

242
00:12:00,120 –> 00:12:02,100
that mistaken perception is of necessity

243
00:12:02,100 –> 00:12:05,839
false and unsound

244
00:12:08,920 –> 00:12:12,790
Sutra 9 predication is carried on

245
00:12:12,790 –> 00:12:15,609
through words or thoughts not resting on

246
00:12:15,609 –> 00:12:20,619
an object perceived the purpose of this

247
00:12:20,619 –> 00:12:22,540
Sutra is to distinguish between the

248
00:12:22,540 –> 00:12:24,419
mental process of predication and

249
00:12:24,419 –> 00:12:27,569
observation induction or testimony

250
00:12:27,569 –> 00:12:30,309
predication is the attribution of a

251
00:12:30,309 –> 00:12:32,859
quality or action to a subject by adding

252
00:12:32,859 –> 00:12:35,919
to it a predicate in the sentence the

253
00:12:35,919 –> 00:12:39,639
man is wise the man is the subject is

254
00:12:39,639 –> 00:12:43,179
wise is the predicate this may be simply

255
00:12:43,179 –> 00:12:45,220
an interplay of thoughts without the

256
00:12:45,220 –> 00:12:47,739
presence of the object thought of or the

257
00:12:47,739 –> 00:12:50,339
things set of may be imaginary or unreal

258
00:12:50,339 –> 00:12:52,749
while observation induction and

259
00:12:52,749 –> 00:12:56,910
testimony always go back to an object

260
00:12:59,429 –> 00:13:04,239
suture 10 sleep is the psychic condition

261
00:13:04,239 –> 00:13:07,540
which rests on mind states all material

262
00:13:07,540 –> 00:13:13,360
things being absent in waking life we

263
00:13:13,360 –> 00:13:14,949
have two currents of perception and

264
00:13:14,949 –> 00:13:17,649
outer current a physical things seen and

265
00:13:17,649 –> 00:13:20,290
heard and perceived an inner current of

266
00:13:20,290 –> 00:13:23,709
mind images and thoughts the other

267
00:13:23,709 –> 00:13:26,319
current ceases in sleep the inner

00:13:26,319 –> 00:13:29,110
current continues and watching the mind

269
00:13:29,110 –> 00:13:30,850
images float before the field of

270
00:13:30,850 –> 00:13:34,509
consciousness we dream even when there

271
00:13:34,509 –> 00:13:36,429
are no dreams there is still a certain

272
00:13:36,429 –> 00:13:38,049
consciousness in sleep so that

273
00:13:38,049 –> 00:13:41,049
unweighting one says I have such well or

274
00:13:41,049 –> 00:13:49,989
I have slept badly Sutra 11 memory is

275
00:13:49,989 –> 00:13:51,669
holding to mind images of things

276
00:13:51,669 –> 00:13:57,759
perceived without modifying them here as

277
00:13:57,759 –> 00:14:00,339
before the mental power is explained in

278
00:14:00,339 –> 00:14:02,230
terms of mind images which are the

279
00:14:02,230 –> 00:14:04,149
material of which the psychic world’s is

280
00:14:04,149 –> 00:14:07,329
built therefore the sages teach that the

281
00:14:07,329 –> 00:14:09,309
world of our perception which is indeed

282
00:14:09,309 –> 00:14:11,799
a world of Mind images is but the race

283
00:14:11,799 –> 00:14:14,739
or shadow of a real and everlasting Road

284
00:14:14,739 –> 00:14:18,100
in this sense memory is but the

285
00:14:18,100 –> 00:14:20,259
psychical inversion of the spiritual

286
00:14:20,259 –> 00:14:22,760
ever-present vision

287
00:14:22,760 –> 00:14:24,620
that which is ever before the spiritual

288
00:14:24,620 –> 00:14:26,450
eye of the seer needs not to be

289
00:14:26,450 –> 00:14:34,160
remembered suitor 12 the control of

290
00:14:34,160 –> 00:14:36,680
these psychic activities comes through

291
00:14:36,680 –> 00:14:39,050
the right use of the will and through

292
00:14:39,050 –> 00:14:41,260
ceasing from self-indulgence

293
00:14:41,260 –> 00:14:45,460
if these psychical powers and energies

294
00:14:45,460 –> 00:14:48,590
even such evil things as passion and

295
00:14:48,590 –> 00:14:52,520
hate and fear are but spiritual powers

296
00:14:52,520 –> 00:14:55,130
fallen and perverted how are we to bring

297
00:14:55,130 –> 00:14:58,580
about their release and restoration two

298
00:14:58,580 –> 00:15:01,160
means are presented to us the awakening

299
00:15:01,160 –> 00:15:03,590
of the spiritual will and the

300
00:15:03,590 –> 00:15:11,680
purification of mind and fat sutra 13

301
00:15:11,680 –> 00:15:14,750
the right use of the will is the steady

302
00:15:14,750 –> 00:15:20,600
effort to stand in spiritual being we

303
00:15:20,600 –> 00:15:21,980
have thought of ourselves perhaps as

304
00:15:21,980 –> 00:15:25,040
creatures moving upon this earth rather

305
00:15:25,040 –> 00:15:27,650
helpless at the mercy of storm and

306
00:15:27,650 –> 00:15:31,730
hungers and our enemies we are to think

307
00:15:31,730 –> 00:15:33,980
of ourselves as immortals dwelling in

308
00:15:33,980 –> 00:15:36,470
the light encompassed and sustained by

309
00:15:36,470 –> 00:15:40,070
spiritual powers the steady effort to

310
00:15:40,070 –> 00:15:42,230
hold this thought will awaken dormant

311
00:15:42,230 –> 00:15:44,960
and unrealized powers which will unveil

312
00:15:44,960 –> 00:15:52,160
to us the nearness of the eternal Sutra

313
00:15:52,160 –> 00:15:56,450
14 this becomes a firm resting place

314
00:15:56,450 –> 00:16:00,950
when followed long persistently with

315
00:16:00,950 –> 00:16:06,260
earnestness we must seek spiritual life

316
00:16:06,260 –> 00:16:08,420
in conformity with the laws of spiritual

317
00:16:08,420 –> 00:16:12,050
life with earnestness humility gentle

318
00:16:12,050 –> 00:16:14,540
Jarett II which is an acknowledgement of

319
00:16:14,540 –> 00:16:17,720
the one soul within a fall only through

320
00:16:17,720 –> 00:16:20,000
obedience to that shared life through

321
00:16:20,000 –> 00:16:21,710
perpetual remembrance of our oneness

322
00:16:21,710 –> 00:16:23,990
with all divine being our nothingness

323
00:16:23,990 –> 00:16:26,420
apart from divine being can we enter our

324
00:16:26,420 –> 00:16:33,920
inheritance Sutra

325
00:16:33,920 –> 00:16:36,030
ceasing from self-indulgence is

326
00:16:36,030 –> 00:16:38,550
conscious mastery over the thirst for

327
00:16:38,550 –> 00:16:43,400
sensuous pleasure here or hereafter

328
00:16:43,730 –> 00:16:46,140
rightly understood the desire for

329
00:16:46,140 –> 00:16:49,050
sensation is the desire of being the

330
00:16:49,050 –> 00:16:51,170
distortion of the soul’s eternal life

331
00:16:51,170 –> 00:16:53,850
the lust and sensual stimulus and

332
00:16:53,850 –> 00:16:56,490
excitation rests on the longing to feel

333
00:16:56,490 –> 00:16:58,980
one’s life keenly to gain the sense of

334
00:16:58,980 –> 00:17:02,190
being really alive the sense of true

335
00:17:02,190 –> 00:17:04,140
life comes only with the coming of the

336
00:17:04,140 –> 00:17:08,000
soul and the soul comes only in silence

337
00:17:08,000 –> 00:17:10,560
after self-indulgence has been

338
00:17:10,560 –> 00:17:13,020
courageously and loyally stilled through

339
00:17:13,020 –> 00:17:18,869
reverence before the coming Soul Sutra

340
00:17:18,869 –> 00:17:22,800
16 the consummation of this is freedom

341
00:17:22,800 –> 00:17:24,810
from thirst for any mode of psychical

342
00:17:24,810 –> 00:17:26,790
activity through the establishment of

343
00:17:26,790 –> 00:17:32,010
the spiritual man in order to gain a

344
00:17:32,010 –> 00:17:33,380
true understanding of this teaching

345
00:17:33,380 –> 00:17:36,090
study must be supplemented by devoted

346
00:17:36,090 –> 00:17:39,780
practice faith by works the reading of

347
00:17:39,780 –> 00:17:42,600
the words will not avail there must be a

348
00:17:42,600 –> 00:17:45,780
real effort to stand as the soul a real

349
00:17:45,780 –> 00:17:48,780
ceasing from self-indulgence with the

350
00:17:48,780 –> 00:17:50,810
awakening of a spiritual will and

351
00:17:50,810 –> 00:17:53,430
purification will come at once the

352
00:17:53,430 –> 00:17:55,350
growth of the spiritual man and our

353
00:17:55,350 –> 00:17:57,180
awakening consciousness as the spiritual

354
00:17:57,180 –> 00:18:00,090
man and this attained in even a small

355
00:18:00,090 –> 00:18:02,850
degree will help us notably in our

356
00:18:02,850 –> 00:18:08,510
contests to him that hath shall be given

357
00:18:10,370 –> 00:18:15,440
Citra 17 meditation with an object

358
00:18:15,440 –> 00:18:20,130
follows these stages first exterior

359
00:18:20,130 –> 00:18:25,490
examining then interior judicial action

360
00:18:25,490 –> 00:18:30,510
then joy then realization of individual

361
00:18:30,510 –> 00:18:35,820
being in the practice of meditation a

362
00:18:35,820 –> 00:18:37,890
beginning may be made by fixing the

363
00:18:37,890 –> 00:18:40,560
attention upon some external object such

364
00:18:40,560 –> 00:18:43,320
as a sacred image or picture or a part

365
00:18:43,320 –> 00:18:46,020
of a book of devotion

366
00:18:46,020 –> 00:18:48,240
in the second stage one passes from the

367
00:18:48,240 –> 00:18:50,640
outer object to an inner pondering upon

368
00:18:50,640 –> 00:18:53,970
its lessons the third stage is the

369
00:18:53,970 –> 00:18:56,040
inspiration the heightening of the

370
00:18:56,040 –> 00:18:57,960
spiritual will which results from this

371
00:18:57,960 –> 00:19:01,680
pondering the fourth stage is the

372
00:19:01,680 –> 00:19:03,600
realization of one’s spiritual being as

373
00:19:03,600 –> 00:19:11,840

or spiritual consciousness may be gained

430
00:22:33,020 –> 00:22:38,570
by ardent service of the master if we

431
00:22:38,570 –> 00:22:41,030
think of our lives as tasks laid upon us

432
00:22:41,030 –> 00:22:43,670
by the master of life if we look on all

433
00:22:43,670 –> 00:22:45,800
duties as parts of that masters work and

434
00:22:45,800 –> 00:22:48,680
trust it to us and forming our life work

435
00:22:48,680 –> 00:22:52,960

00:22:56,300 –> 00:22:58,430
the master’s life and share the Masters

438
00:22:58,430 –> 00:23:01,400

446
00:23:27,710 –> 00:23:30,200
evils we are in bondage through our

447
00:23:30,200 –> 00:23:32,990
former works we are under the dominance

448
00:23:32,990 –> 00:23:36,919

attainments rests on this and is

456
00:24:05,419 –> 00:24:07,280
possible because the soul and the

00:24:07,280 –> 00:24:15,440
Oversoul are one sutured 26 he is a

458
00:24:15,440 –> 00:24:17,710
teacher of all who have gone before

459
00:24:17,710 –> 00:24:23,120
since he is not limited by time from the

460
00:24:23,120 –> 00:24:24,590
beginning the Oversoul has been the

461
00:24:24,590 –> 00:24:26,900
teacher of all souls which by their

the Oversoul is the for time and time

466
00:24:36,640 –> 00:24:39,890

children sutured 27 his word is ohm ohm

468
00:24:52,120 –> 00:24:55,100
the symbol of the three and one the

00:24:55,100 –> 00:24:57,440
three worlds in the soul the three times

470
00:24:57,440 –> 00:25:00,950

omniscience joy in the one spirit this

475
00:25:13,549 –> 00:25:16,429
is the word the symbol of a master and

Lord the perfected spiritual man

478
00:25:25,150 –> 00:25:28,980
repetition of ohm and meditation thereon

479
00:25:28,980 –> 00:25:31,570
this has many meanings in ascending

480
00:25:31,570 –> 00:25:34,150
degrees there is first the potency of

481
00:25:34,150 –> 00:25:37,690
the word itself as of all words then

482
00:25:37,690 –> 00:25:39,370
there is a manifold significance of the

483
00:25:39,370 –> 00:25:43,360
symbol as suggested above lastly there’s

484
00:25:43,360 –> 00:25:45,010
a spiritual realization of the high

485
00:25:45,010 –> 00:25:48,090
essences that symbolized thus we rise

486
00:25:48,090 –> 00:25:54,180
step-by-step to the eternal suture 29

487
00:25:54,180 –> 00:25:56,590
thence come the awakening of anterior

488
00:25:56,590 –> 00:25:58,570
consciousness and the removal of

489
00:25:58,570 –> 00:26:03,310
barriers here again faiths must be

490
00:26:03,310 –> 00:26:05,830
supplemented by works the life must be

491
00:26:05,830 –> 00:26:08,200
led as well as studied before the full

492
00:26:08,200 –> 00:26:10,900
meaning can be understood the awakening

493
00:26:10,900 –> 00:26:13,120
of spiritual consciousness can only be

494
00:26:13,120 –> 00:26:14,950
understood in measure as it is entered

495
00:26:14,950 –> 00:26:17,440
it can only be entered where the

496
00:26:17,440 –> 00:26:19,690
conditions are present purity of heart

497
00:26:19,690 –> 00:26:23,050
and strong aspiration and the resolute

498
00:26:23,050 –> 00:26:26,770
conquest of each sin this however may

499
00:26:26,770 –> 00:26:28,510
easily be understood that the

500
00:26:28,510 –> 00:26:30,310
recognition of the three worlds is

501
00:26:30,310 –> 00:26:32,560
resting in the soul leads us to realize

502
00:26:32,560 –> 00:26:34,650
ourselves and all life above the soul

503
00:26:34,650 –> 00:26:37,510
that as we dwell not in past present or

504
00:26:37,510 –> 00:26:40,510
future but in the eternal we become more

505
00:26:40,510 –> 00:26:42,940

as the work of a divine one we shall

508
00:26:48,550 –> 00:26:50,350
come more into harmony with the one and

509
00:26:50,350 –> 00:26:52,270
thus remove the barrier in our path

510

spiritual life and may sometimes be a

559
00:29:22,920 –> 00:29:26,430
help as cutting off distractions it will

560
00:29:26,430 –> 00:29:28,500
be well for us to ponder over each of

561
00:29:28,500 –> 00:29:30,960
these 9 activities thinking of each as a

562
00:29:30,960 –> 00:29:33,660
psychic state a barrier to the interior

563
00:29:33,660 –> 00:29:39,450
consciousness of the spiritual man sutra

564
00:29:39,450 –> 00:29:43,860
31 grieving despondency bodily

565
00:29:43,860 –> 00:29:46,200
restlessness the drawn in and sending

566
00:29:46,200 –> 00:29:48,450
forth of the life breath also contribute

567
00:29:48,450 –> 00:29:52,640
to drive the psychic nature to and fro

568
00:29:52,940 –> 00:29:55,230
the first two moods are easily

569
00:29:55,230 –> 00:29:57,980
understood we can well see how a sudden

570
00:29:57,980 –> 00:30:00,830
psychic condition flagrantly opposed to

571
00:30:00,830 –> 00:30:02,720
the pure and positive joy of spiritual

572
00:30:02,720 –> 00:30:04,150
life would be a barrier

573
00:30:04,150 –> 00:30:07,910
the next bodily restlessness is in a

574
00:30:07,910 –> 00:30:09,799
special way the fault of our day and

575
00:30:09,799 –> 00:30:13,070
generation when it is conquered mental

576
00:30:13,070 –> 00:30:15,640
restlessness will be half conquered to

577
00:30:15,640 –> 00:30:18,590
the next two terms concerning the

578
00:30:18,590 –> 00:30:21,590
life-breath offer some difficulty the

579
00:30:21,590 –> 00:30:23,480
surface meaning is harsh in irregular

580
00:30:23,480 –> 00:30:26,179
breathing the deeper meaning is a life

581
00:30:26,179 –> 00:30:32,210
of harsh and irregular impulses future

582
00:30:32,210 –> 00:30:35,059
thirty-two steady application to a

583
00:30:35,059 –> 00:30:37,130
principle is the way to put a stop to

584
00:30:37,130 –> 00:30:41,480
these the will which in its pristine

585
00:30:41,480 –> 00:30:43,820
state was full of vigour has been

586
00:30:43,820 –> 00:30:45,710
steadily corrupted by self-indulgence

587
00:30:45,710 –> 00:30:49,040
the seeking of moods and sensations for

588
00:30:49,040 –> 00:30:50,770
sensations sake

589
00:30:50,770 –> 00:30:53,929
hence come all the morbid and sickly

590
00:30:53,929 –> 00:30:56,660
moods of the minds the remedy is a

591
00:30:56,660 –> 00:30:58,520
return to the pristine state of the will

592
00:30:58,520 –> 00:31:02,600
by vigorous positive effort or as we are

593
00:31:02,600 –> 00:31:04,790
here told by steady application to a

594
00:31:04,790 –> 00:31:07,970
principle the principle to which we

595
00:31:07,970 –> 00:31:09,280
should the steadily apply ourselves

596
00:31:09,280 –> 00:31:11,720
should be one arising from the reality

597
00:31:11,720 –> 00:31:14,510
of spiritual life valorous work for the

598
00:31:14,510 –> 00:31:22,090
soul in others as in ourselves Sutra 33

599
00:31:22,090 –> 00:31:25,370
by sympathy with the happy compassion

600
00:31:25,370 –> 00:31:28,450
for the sorrowful delight and the holy

601
00:31:28,450 –> 00:31:31,250
disregard of the unholy the psychic

602
00:31:31,250 –> 00:31:36,440
nature moves to gracious peace when we

603
00:31:36,440 –> 00:31:38,570
are wrapped up in ourselves shrouded

604
00:31:38,570 –> 00:31:40,970
with the cloak of our egotism absorbed

605
00:31:40,970 –> 00:31:43,340
in our pains and bitter thoughts we are

606
00:31:43,340 –> 00:31:45,169
not willing to disturb our strain our

607
00:31:45,169 –> 00:31:47,270
own sickly mood by giving kindly

608
00:31:47,270 –> 00:31:49,040
sympathy to the happy thus doubling

609
00:31:49,040 –> 00:31:51,559
their joy or by showing compassion for

610
00:31:51,559 –> 00:31:54,740
the sad that’s having their sorrow we

611
00:31:54,740 –> 00:31:56,390
refuse to find delight in holy things

612
00:31:56,390 –> 00:31:59,270
and let the mind brood in sad pessimism

613
00:31:59,270 –> 00:32:03,020
on unholy things all these evil psychic

614
00:32:03,020 –> 00:32:05,240
moods must be conquered by strong effort

615
00:32:05,240 –> 00:32:08,059
of will this rending of the veils will

616
00:32:08,059 –> 00:32:10,040
reveal to us something of the Grace and

617
00:32:10,040 –> 00:32:11,450
peace which are of

618
00:32:11,450 –> 00:32:13,100
interior consciousness of a spiritual

619
00:32:13,100 –> 00:32:20,029
man Sutra 34 or peace may be reached by

620
00:32:20,029 –> 00:32:22,070
the even sending forth and control of

621
00:32:22,070 –> 00:32:27,230
the life breath here again we may look

622
00:32:27,230 –> 00:32:30,230
for a double meaning first that even and

623
00:32:30,230 –> 00:32:32,000
quiet breathing which is a part of the

624
00:32:32,000 –> 00:32:34,490
victory over bodily restlessness then

625
00:32:34,490 –> 00:32:37,549
the even and quiet tenor of life without

626
00:32:37,549 –> 00:32:40,340
harsh or dissonance impulses which

627
00:32:40,340 –> 00:32:43,659
brings stillness to the Heart Sutra

628
00:32:44,169 –> 00:32:47,990
thirty five faithful persistent

629
00:32:47,990 –> 00:32:50,600
application to any object if completely

630
00:32:50,600 –> 00:32:52,850
attained will bind the mind to

631
00:32:52,850 –> 00:32:57,260
steadiness we are still considering how

632
00:32:57,260 –> 00:32:58,730
to overcome the wavering and

633
00:32:58,730 –> 00:33:01,070
perturbation of the psychic nature which

634
00:33:01,070 –> 00:33:02,929
make it quite unfit to transmit the

635
00:33:02,929 –> 00:33:05,750
inward consciousness and stillness we

636
00:33:05,750 –> 00:33:08,120
are once more told to use the will and

637
00:33:08,120 –> 00:33:09,830
to train it by steady and persistent

638
00:33:09,830 –> 00:33:12,649
work by sitting close to our work in the

639
00:33:12,649 –> 00:33:19,130
phrase of the original Sutra 36 as also

640
00:33:19,130 –> 00:33:24,019
will a joyful radiant spirit there is no

641
00:33:24,019 –> 00:33:27,380
such illusion as gloomy pessimism and it

642
00:33:27,380 –> 00:33:28,970
has been truly said that a man’s

643
00:33:28,970 –> 00:33:31,179
cheerfulness is a measure of his face

644
00:33:31,179 –> 00:33:35,149
gloom despondency the pale cast of

645
00:33:35,149 –> 00:33:37,779
thought are very amenable to the will

646
00:33:37,779 –> 00:33:40,429
sturdy and courageous effort will bring

647
00:33:40,429 –> 00:33:43,130
a clear and valorous mind but it must

648
00:33:43,130 –> 00:33:45,110
always be remembered that this is not

649
00:33:45,110 –> 00:33:47,480
for solace to the personal man but is

650
00:33:47,480 –> 00:33:49,309
rather an offering to the ideal of

651
00:33:49,309 –> 00:33:51,679
spiritual life a contribution to the

652
00:33:51,679 –> 00:33:53,269
universal and universally shared

653
00:33:53,269 –> 00:34:00,590
treasure in heaven suture 37 or the

654
00:34:00,590 –> 00:34:02,330
purging of self-indulgence from the

655
00:34:02,330 –> 00:34:06,860
psychic nature we must recognize that

656
00:34:06,860 –> 00:34:09,710
the fall of man is a reality exemplified

657
00:34:09,710 –> 00:34:12,679
in our own person we have quite other

658
00:34:12,679 –> 00:34:14,899
sins from the animals and far more

659
00:34:14,899 –> 00:34:17,389
deleterious and they have all come

660
00:34:17,389 –> 00:34:19,730
through self-indulgence with which our

661
00:34:19,730 –> 00:34:22,159
psychic natures are soaked through and

662
00:34:22,159 –> 00:34:24,800
through as we climbed down

663
00:34:24,800 –> 00:34:27,320
for our pleasure so much we climb up

664
00:34:27,320 –> 00:34:29,210
again for our purification and

665
00:34:29,210 –> 00:34:31,690
restoration to our former high estate

666
00:34:31,690 –> 00:34:35,020
the process is painful perhaps yet

667
00:34:35,020 –> 00:34:42,770
indispensable Sutra 38 or a pondering on

668
00:34:42,770 –> 00:34:44,690
the perceptions gained in dreams and

669
00:34:44,690 –> 00:34:49,520
dreamless sleep for the Eastern sages

670
00:34:49,520 –> 00:34:52,460
dreams are it is true made up of images

671
00:34:52,460 –> 00:34:54,949
of waking life reflections of what the

672
00:34:54,949 –> 00:34:57,770
eyes have seen and the ears heard but

673
00:34:57,770 –> 00:35:00,200
dreams are something more for the images

674
00:35:00,200 –> 00:35:02,720
are in a sense real objective on their

675
00:35:02,720 –> 00:35:05,210
own plane and the knowledge that there

676
00:35:05,210 –> 00:35:07,780
is another world even a dream world

677
00:35:07,780 –> 00:35:10,780
lightens the tyranny of material life

678
00:35:10,780 –> 00:35:13,550
much of poetry and art is such a solace

679
00:35:13,550 –> 00:35:16,460
from dreamland but there is more in

680
00:35:16,460 –> 00:35:18,740
dream for it may image what is above as

681
00:35:18,740 –> 00:35:21,860
well as those below not only the

682
00:35:21,860 –> 00:35:24,200
children of men but also the children by

683
00:35:24,200 –> 00:35:25,730
the shore of the immortal see that

684
00:35:25,730 –> 00:35:27,530
brought us hither they throw their

685
00:35:27,530 –> 00:35:30,440
images on this magic mirror so too are

686
00:35:30,440 –> 00:35:32,960
the secrets of dreamless sleep with its

687
00:35:32,960 –> 00:35:39,950
pure vision an even greater degree Sutra

688
00:35:39,950 –> 00:35:43,910
39 or meditative brooding on what is

689
00:35:43,910 –> 00:35:47,930
yours to the heart here is a thought

690
00:35:47,930 –> 00:35:49,780
which our own day is beginning to grasp

691
00:35:49,780 –> 00:35:53,120
that love is a form of knowledge that we

692
00:35:53,120 –> 00:35:56,000
truly know anything or any person by

693
00:35:56,000 –> 00:35:58,940
becoming one there with in love thus

694
00:35:58,940 –> 00:36:01,220
love has a wisdom that the minds cannot

695
00:36:01,220 –> 00:36:04,010
claim and by this hearty love this

696
00:36:04,010 –> 00:36:05,990
becoming one with what is beyond our

697
00:36:05,990 –> 00:36:08,480
personal borders we may take a long step

698
00:36:08,480 –> 00:36:11,450
toward freedom two directions for this

699
00:36:11,450 –> 00:36:13,970
may be suggested the pure love of the

700
00:36:13,970 –> 00:36:16,480
artist for his work and the earnest

701
00:36:16,480 –> 00:36:18,890
compassionate search into the hearts of

702
00:36:18,890 –> 00:36:26,600
others sutra 40 thus he masters all from

704
00:36:31,310 –> 00:36:34,550
asked how he made his discoveries by

705
00:36:34,550 –> 00:36:37,859
intending my mind on them he replied

706
00:36:37,859 –> 00:36:40,650
the steady pressure this becoming one

707
00:36:40,650 –> 00:36:43,019
with what we seek to understand whether

708
00:36:43,019 –> 00:36:46,289
it be Adam or soul is the one means to

709
00:36:46,289 –> 00:36:49,799
know when we become a thing we really

710
00:36:49,799 –> 00:36:53,880
know it not otherwise therefore live the

711
00:36:53,880 –> 00:36:56,910
life to know the doctrine do the will of

712
00:36:56,910 –> 00:37:00,799
the Father if you would know the father

00:37:01,759 –> 00:37:06,059
suture 41 when the perturbations of the

714
00:37:06,059 –> 00:37:07,469
psychic nature have all been stilled

715
00:37:07,469 –> 00:37:09,900
then the consciousness like a pure

716
00:37:09,900 –> 00:37:12,329
crystal takes the color of what it rests

717
00:37:12,329 –> 00:37:14,329
on whether that be the perceiver

718
00:37:14,329 –> 00:37:20,009
perceiving or thing perceived this is a

719
00:37:20,009 –> 00:37:21,809
fuller expression of the last Sutra and

720
00:37:21,809 –> 00:37:24,450
is so lucid that comments can hardly add

721
00:37:24,450 –> 00:37:27,529
to it everything is either perceiver

722
00:37:27,529 –> 00:37:31,229
perceiving or the thing perceived or as

723
00:37:31,229 –> 00:37:33,839
we might say consciousness force or

724
00:37:33,839 –> 00:37:37,469
matter this age tells us that the one

725
00:37:37,469 –> 00:37:39,599
key will unlock the secrets of all three

the secrets of consciousness force and

727
00:37:42,209 –> 00:37:45,479

intuitively understanding the hearts of

730
00:37:49,619 –> 00:37:51,959
others is really a manifestation of the

731
00:37:51,959 –> 00:37:53,910
same power as that penetrating

732
00:37:53,910 –> 00:37:56,219
perception whereby one Divine’s the

with that object for example in coming

744
00:38:28,769 –> 00:38:30,569
to the study of a book we think of the

745
00:38:30,569 –> 00:38:33,209
author his period the school to which he

746
00:38:33,209 –> 00:38:36,150
belongs the second stage set forth in

747
00:38:36,150 –> 00:38:38,339
the next Sutra goes directly to the

748
00:38:38,339 –> 00:38:40,259
spiritual meaning of the book setting

749
00:38:40,259 –> 00:38:41,759
its traditional trappings aside and

750
00:38:41,759 –> 00:38:43,619
finding its application to our own

751
00:38:43,619 –> 00:38:47,069
experience and problem the commentator

752
00:38:47,069 –> 00:38:49,670
takes a very simple illustration a cow

753
00:38:49,670 –> 00:38:51,630
where one considers

754
00:38:51,630 –> 00:38:54,180
the first stage the name of the cow the

755
00:38:54,180 –> 00:38:56,700
animal itself and the idea of a cow in

756
00:38:56,700 –> 00:39:00,210
the mind in the second stage one pushes

757
00:39:00,210 –> 00:39:02,670
these trappings aside and entering into

758
00:39:02,670 –> 00:39:05,370
the inmost being of the cow shares its

759
00:39:05,370 –> 00:39:07,890
consciousness as do some of the artists

760
00:39:07,890 –> 00:39:10,530
who paint cows they get at the very life

761
00:39:10,530 –> 00:39:15,660
of what they study in paint Sutra 43

762
00:39:15,660 –> 00:39:18,960
when the object dwells in the mind clear

763
00:39:18,960 –> 00:39:21,720
of memory pictures uncolored by the mind

764
00:39:21,720 –> 00:39:24,000
as a pure luminous idea

765
00:39:24,000 –> 00:39:26,670
this is perception without exterior

766
00:39:26,670 –> 00:39:31,110
consideration we are still considering

767
00:39:31,110 –> 00:39:34,680
external visible objects such perception

768
00:39:34,680 –> 00:39:36,900
as is here described is the nature of

769
00:39:36,900 –> 00:39:39,150
that penetrating vision where by Newton

770
00:39:39,150 –> 00:39:41,520
and tending his mind on things made his

771
00:39:41,520 –> 00:39:43,890
discoveries or that whereby a really

772
00:39:43,890 –> 00:39:45,900
great portrait painter Pierson’s to the

773
00:39:45,900 –> 00:39:48,210
soul of him whom he paints and makes

774
00:39:48,210 –> 00:39:51,510
that soul live on canvas these stages of

775
00:39:51,510 –> 00:39:54,480
perception are described in this way to

776
00:39:54,480 –> 00:39:56,370
lead the mind up to an understanding of

777
00:39:56,370 –> 00:39:59,160
the piercing soul vision of a spiritual

778
00:39:59,160 –> 00:40:06,180
man the immortal Sutra 44 the same two

779
00:40:06,180 –> 00:40:08,460
steps when referring to things of finer

780
00:40:08,460 –> 00:40:11,310
substance are said to be with or without

781
00:40:11,310 –> 00:40:16,650
judicial action of the mind we now come

782
00:40:16,650 –> 00:40:19,320
to mental or psychical objects to

783
00:40:19,320 –> 00:40:21,960
objects in the mind it is precisely by

784
00:40:21,960 –> 00:40:24,510
comparing arranging and superposing

785
00:40:24,510 –> 00:40:26,250
these mind images that we get our

786
00:40:26,250 –> 00:40:29,250
general notions or concepts this process

787
00:40:29,250 –> 00:40:31,950
of analysis and synthesis whereby we

788
00:40:31,950 –> 00:40:33,570
select certain qualities in a group of

789
00:40:33,570 –> 00:40:35,460
mind images and then range together

790
00:40:35,460 –> 00:40:37,320
those of light quality as a judicial

791
00:40:37,320 –> 00:40:40,350
action of the mind spoken of but when we

792
00:40:40,350 –> 00:40:42,960
exercise Swift divination upon the mind

793
00:40:42,960 –> 00:40:45,930
images as does a poet or manda genius

794
00:40:45,930 –> 00:40:48,030
then we use the power higher than the

795
00:40:48,030 –> 00:40:50,160
judicial and one nearer to the keen

796
00:40:50,160 –> 00:40:56,960
vision of the spiritual man Sutra 45

797
00:40:56,960 –> 00:40:59,460
subtle substance rises in ascending

798
00:40:59,460 –> 00:41:02,250
degrees to that pure nature which has no

799
00:41:02,250 –> 00:41:04,950
distinguishing mark

800
00:41:04,950 –> 00:41:07,800
as we ascend from outer material things

801
00:41:07,800 –> 00:41:09,750
which are permeated by separateness and

802
00:41:09,750 –> 00:41:12,119
whose chief characteristic is to be

803
00:41:12,119 –> 00:41:14,280
separate just as so many pebbles are

804
00:41:14,280 –> 00:41:16,680
separate from each other as we ascend

805
00:41:16,680 –> 00:41:19,589
first to mind images which overlap and

806
00:41:19,589 –> 00:41:21,869
coalesce in both space and time and

807
00:41:21,869 –> 00:41:24,960
thence the ideas and principles we

808
00:41:24,960 –> 00:41:27,359
finally come to pure essences drawing

809
00:41:27,359 –> 00:41:31,349
ever nearer and nearer to unity or we

810
00:41:31,349 –> 00:41:33,170
may Ellis trait this principle left our

811
00:41:33,170 –> 00:41:36,119
bodily external cells are quite distinct

812
00:41:36,119 –> 00:41:39,320
and separate in form name place

813
00:41:39,320 –> 00:41:42,780

substance meet and part meet and part

815
00:41:45,660 –> 00:41:47,970
again in perpetual concussion and

816
00:41:47,970 –> 00:41:51,660
interchange our spiritual cells attain

817
00:41:51,660 –> 00:41:53,820
true consciousness through unity where

818
00:41:53,820 –> 00:41:55,530
the partition wall between us and the

819
00:41:55,530 –> 00:41:58,440
highest between us and others is broken

820
00:41:58,440 –> 00:42:00,869
down and we are all made perfect in the

821
00:42:00,869 –> 00:42:03,990
one the highest riches are possessed by

822
00:42:03,990 –> 00:42:07,890
all pure souls only when United thus we

823
00:42:07,890 –> 00:42:09,599
rise from separation to true

824
00:42:09,599 –> 00:42:17,760
individuality community Sutra 46 the

825
00:42:17,760 –> 00:42:19,530
above are the degrees of limited and

826
00:42:19,530 –> 00:42:20,869
conditioned spiritual consciousness

827
00:42:20,869 –> 00:42:22,829
still containing the seed of

828
00:42:22,829 –> 00:42:27,180
separateness in the four stages of

829
00:42:27,180 –> 00:42:29,490
perception above described the spiritual

830
00:42:29,490 –> 00:42:31,109
vision is still working through the

831
00:42:31,109 –> 00:42:33,569
mental and psychical the inner genius is

832
00:42:33,569 –> 00:42:34,950
still expressed through the outer

833
00:42:34,950 –> 00:42:37,980
personal man the spiritual man has yet

834
00:42:37,980 –> 00:42:39,720
to come completely to consciousness as

835
00:42:39,720 –> 00:42:42,300
himself in his own realm the psychical

836
00:42:42,300 –> 00:42:48,990
veils laid aside sutra 47 when pure

837
00:42:48,990 –> 00:42:51,150
perception without judicial action of

838
00:42:51,150 –> 00:42:53,430
the mind is reached there follows the

839
00:42:53,430 –> 00:42:58,589
gracious peace of the inner self we have

840
00:42:58,589 –> 00:43:00,510
instance certain types of this cured

841
00:43:00,510 –> 00:43:03,720
perception the poet’s divination whereby

842
00:43:03,720 –> 00:43:05,450
he sees the spirit within the symbol

843
00:43:05,450 –> 00:43:08,400
likeness and things unlike and beauty in

844
00:43:08,400 –> 00:43:11,280
all things the pure insight of the true

845
00:43:11,280 –> 00:43:13,440
philosopher whose vision rests not on

846
00:43:13,440 –> 00:43:15,510
the appearances of life but on its

847
00:43:15,510 –> 00:43:18,300
realities or the Saints firm person

848
00:43:18,300 –> 00:43:21,750
of spiritual life and being all these

849
00:43:21,750 –> 00:43:23,790
are far advanced on the way they have

850
00:43:23,790 –> 00:43:25,500
gone nearer to the secret dwelling of

851
00:43:25,500 –> 00:43:33,240
peace Sutra 48 in that piece perception

852
00:43:33,240 –> 00:43:38,550
is unfailing new true the poet the wise

853
00:43:38,550 –> 00:43:41,280
philosopher and the saint not only reach

854
00:43:41,280 –> 00:43:44,070
a wide and luminous consciousness but

855
00:43:44,070 –> 00:43:45,360
they gain certain knowledge of

856
00:43:45,360 –> 00:43:49,320
substantial reality when we know we know

857
00:43:49,320 –> 00:43:51,570
that we know for we have come to the

858
00:43:51,570 –> 00:43:53,790
stage where we know things by being them

859
00:43:53,790 –> 00:43:56,720
and nothing can be more true than being

860
00:43:56,720 –> 00:43:59,850
we rest on the rock and know it to be

861
00:43:59,850 –> 00:44:02,490
rock rooted in the very heart of the

862
00:44:02,490 –> 00:44:09,330
world Sutra 49 the object of this

863
00:44:09,330 –> 00:44:11,550
perception is other than what is learned

864
00:44:11,550 –> 00:44:13,860
from the sacred books or by sound

865
00:44:13,860 –> 00:44:16,140
inference since this perception is

866
00:44:16,140 –> 00:44:21,240
particular the distinction is a luminous

867
00:44:21,240 –> 00:44:24,360
and inspiring one the scriptures teach

868
00:44:24,360 –> 00:44:26,790
general truths concerning universal

869
00:44:26,790 –> 00:44:28,820
spiritual life and broad laws an

870
00:44:28,820 –> 00:44:30,960
inference from their teaching is not

871
00:44:30,960 –> 00:44:33,960
less general but the spiritual

872
00:44:33,960 –> 00:44:36,300
perception of the awakened sphere brings

873
00:44:36,300 –> 00:44:38,760
particular truth concerning his own

874
00:44:38,760 –> 00:44:41,040
particular life and needs whether these

875
00:44:41,040 –> 00:44:43,590
be for himself or others he receives

876
00:44:43,590 –> 00:44:46,290
defined precise knowledge exactly

877
00:44:46,290 –> 00:44:50,820
applying to what he has at heart sutra

878
00:44:50,820 –> 00:44:54,000
50 the impress on the consciousness

879
00:44:54,000 –> 00:44:55,640
springing from this perception

880
00:44:55,640 –> 00:45:01,230
supersedes all previous impressions each

881
00:45:01,230 –> 00:45:03,930
state or field of the mind each field of

882
00:45:03,930 –> 00:45:05,940
knowledge so to speak which is reached

883
00:45:05,940 –> 00:45:08,580
by mental and emotional energies is a

884
00:45:08,580 –> 00:45:11,220
psychical state just as a mind picture

885
00:45:11,220 –> 00:45:13,530
of a stage with the actors on it is a

886
00:45:13,530 –> 00:45:16,530
psychical state or field when the pure

887
00:45:16,530 –> 00:45:19,050
vision is of the poet the philosopher

888
00:45:19,050 –> 00:45:21,930
the saint fills the whole field all

889
00:45:21,930 –> 00:45:24,320
lesser views and visions are crowded out

890
00:45:24,320 –> 00:45:27,180
this high consciousness displaces all

891
00:45:27,180 –> 00:45:30,390
lesser consciousness yet in a certain

892
00:45:30,390 –> 00:45:32,190
sense that which is viewed

893
00:45:32,190 –> 00:45:35,369
as part even by the vision of a sage has

894
00:45:35,369 –> 00:45:37,440
still an element of illusion a thin

895
00:45:37,440 –> 00:45:38,490
psychical veil

896
00:45:38,490 –> 00:45:41,069
however pure and luminous that veil may

897
00:45:41,069 –> 00:45:44,460
be it is the last and highest psychic

898
00:45:44,460 –> 00:45:50,790
state future 51 when this impression

899
00:45:50,790 –> 00:45:54,060
ceases then since all impressions have

900
00:45:54,060 –> 00:45:56,700
ceased there arises pure spiritual

901
00:45:56,700 –> 00:45:58,920
consciousness with no seed of

902
00:45:58,920 –> 00:46:03,839
separateness left the last psychic veil

903
00:46:03,839 –> 00:46:06,390
is drawn aside and the spiritual man

00:47:35,500 –> 00:47:38,170
briefly the growth of the spiritual man

930
00:47:38,170 –> 00:47:40,480
and the disentangling of the spiritual

931
00:47:40,480 –> 00:47:43,509
man from the wrappings the veils the

932
00:47:43,509 –> 00:47:46,180
disguises laid upon him by the mind and

933
00:47:46,180 –> 00:47:48,430
the psychical nature wherein he is in

934
00:47:48,430 –> 00:47:53,049
meshed like a bird caught in a net the

935
00:47:53,049 –> 00:47:55,779
question arises by what means may the

936
00:47:55,779 –> 00:47:57,579
spiritual man be freed from these

937
00:47:57,579 –> 00:48:00,160
psychical meshes and disguises so that

938
00:48:00,160 –> 00:48:02,230
he may stand forth above death in his

939
00:48:02,230 –> 00:48:04,890
radiant eternalness and divine power and

940
00:48:04,890 –> 00:48:07,599
the second book sets itself to answer

941
00:48:07,599 –> 00:48:09,609
this very question and to detail the

942
00:48:09,609 –> 00:48:11,740
means in a way entirely practical and

943
00:48:11,740 –> 00:48:14,680
very lucid so that he who runs may read

944
00:48:14,680 –> 00:48:16,839
and he who reads may understand and

945
00:48:16,839 –> 00:48:20,230
practice the second part of the second

946
00:48:20,230 –> 00:48:22,210
book is concerned with practical

947
00:48:22,210 –> 00:48:24,819
spiritual training that is with the

948
00:48:24,819 –> 00:48:26,349
earlier practical training of the

949
00:48:26,349 –> 00:48:27,869
spiritual man

950
00:48:27,869 –> 00:48:30,220
the most striking thing in it is the

951
00:48:30,220 –> 00:48:32,470
emphasis laid on the commandments which

952
00:48:32,470 –> 00:48:34,240
are precisely those of the latter part

953
00:48:34,240 –> 00:48:36,519
of the Decalogue together with obedience

954
00:48:36,519 –> 00:48:39,640
to the master our day and generation is

955
00:48:39,640 –> 00:48:41,859
far too prone to fancy but there can be

956
00:48:41,859 –> 00:48:43,779
mystical life and growth on some other

957
00:48:43,779 –> 00:48:46,450
foundation on the foundation for example

958
00:48:46,450 –> 00:48:49,269
of intellectual curiosity or psychical

959
00:48:49,269 –> 00:48:50,349
selfishness

960
00:48:50,349 –> 00:48:53,650
in reality on this matter foundation the

961
00:48:53,650 –> 00:48:55,299
life of the spiritual man can never be

962
00:48:55,299 –> 00:48:58,420
built nor indeed anything but a psychic

963
00:48:58,420 –> 00:49:01,589
counterfeit a dangerous delusion

964
00:49:01,589 –> 00:49:03,969
therefore Patanjali like every great

965
00:49:03,969 –> 00:49:06,069
spiritual teacher meets the question

966
00:49:06,069 –> 00:49:09,160
what must I do to be saved with the

967
00:49:09,160 –> 00:49:12,630
age-old answer keep the commandments

968
00:49:12,630 –> 00:49:15,489
only after the disciple can say these

969
00:49:15,489 –> 00:49:17,829
have I kept can there be the further and

970
00:49:17,829 –> 00:49:19,869
find our teaching of the spiritual rules

971
00:49:19,869 –> 00:49:22,989
it is therefore vital for us to realize

972
00:49:22,989 –> 00:49:25,630
that the yoga system like every true

973
00:49:25,630 –> 00:49:27,999
system of spiritual teaching rests on

974
00:49:27,999 –> 00:49:29,880
this broad and firm foundation of

975
00:49:29,880 –> 00:49:35,789
honesty truth cleanness obedience

976
00:49:35,789 –> 00:49:38,410
without these there is no salvation and

977
00:49:38,410 –> 00:49:41,140
he who practices ease even though

978
00:49:41,140 –> 00:49:43,749
ignorant of spiritual things is laying

979
00:49:43,749 –> 00:49:48,749

practices which make for union with the

soul are fervent aspiration spiritual

999
00:50:51,860 –> 00:50:54,260
reading and complete obedience to the

1000
00:50:54,260 –> 00:50:58,220
master the word which I have rendered

1001
00:50:58,220 –> 00:51:01,640
fervent aspiration means primarily fire

1002
00:51:01,640 –> 00:51:04,760
and in the Eastern teaching it means the

1003
00:51:04,760 –> 00:51:07,010
fire which gives life and light and at

1004
00:51:07,010 –> 00:51:10,580
the same time the fire which purifies we

1005
00:51:10,580 –> 00:51:12,800
have therefore as our first practice as

1006
00:51:12,800 –> 00:51:15,080
the first of a means of spiritual growth

1007
00:51:15,080 –> 00:51:17,720
that fire equality of the will which in

1008
00:51:17,720 –> 00:51:19,850
Kindles and illumines and at the same

1009
00:51:19,850 –> 00:51:22,610
time the steady practice of purification

1010
00:51:22,610 –> 00:51:26,260
the burning away of all known impurities

1011
00:51:26,260 –> 00:51:28,460
spiritual reading is so universally

1012
00:51:28,460 –> 00:51:30,860
accepted and understood that it needs no

1013
00:51:30,860 –> 00:51:33,350
comment the very study of Patanjali

1014
00:51:33,350 –> 00:51:35,930
sutras is an exercise in spiritual

1015
00:51:35,930 –> 00:51:39,170
reading and a very effective one and so

1016
00:51:39,170 –> 00:51:42,010
with all other books of the soul

1017
00:51:42,010 –> 00:51:44,690
obedience to the master means that we

1018
00:51:44,690 –> 00:51:46,190
shall make the will of the master our

1019
00:51:46,190 –> 00:51:48,800
will and shall conform in all ways to

1020
00:51:48,800 –> 00:51:50,900
the will of the divine setting aside the

1021
00:51:50,900 –> 00:51:52,880
wills of self which are both psychic

1022
00:51:52,880 –> 00:51:56,510
distortions of the one divine will the

1023
00:51:56,510 –> 00:51:58,790
constant effort to obey in all the ways

1024
00:51:58,790 –> 00:52:01,160
we know and understand will reveal new

1025
00:52:01,160 –> 00:52:04,160
ways and new tasks the evidence of new

1026
00:52:04,160 –> 00:52:06,920
growth of the soul nothing will do more

1027
00:52:06,920 –> 00:52:08,650
for the spiritual man in us than this

1028
00:52:08,650 –> 00:52:11,000
fir there is no such regenerating power

1029
00:52:11,000 –> 00:52:15,070
as the awakening spiritual will

1030
00:52:16,049 –> 00:52:20,319
Citra to their aim is to bring soul

1031
00:52:20,319 –> 00:52:25,900
vision and to wear away hindrances the

1032
00:52:25,900 –> 00:52:27,940
aim of fervor spiritual reading and

1033
00:52:27,940 –> 00:52:30,609
obedience to the master is to bring full

1034
00:52:30,609 –> 00:52:33,520
vision and to wear away hindrances or to

1035
00:52:33,520 –> 00:52:34,690
use the phrase we have already adopted

1036
00:52:34,690 –> 00:52:37,270
the aim of these practices is to help

1037
00:52:37,270 –> 00:52:39,940
the spiritual man to open his eyes to

1038
00:52:39,940 –> 00:52:40,780
help him also

1039
00:52:40,780 –> 00:52:43,119
to throw aside the veils and disguises

1040
00:52:43,119 –> 00:52:45,280
the enmeshing psychic nets which

1041
00:52:45,280 –> 00:52:47,410
surround him tying his hands as it were

1042
00:52:47,410 –> 00:52:51,880
and bandaging his eyes and this as all

1043
00:52:51,880 –> 00:52:54,280
teachers testify is a long and arduous

1044
00:52:54,280 –> 00:52:57,609
task a steady uphill fight demanding

1045
00:52:57,609 –> 00:53:01,990
fine courage and persistence toil fervor

1046
00:53:01,990 –> 00:53:04,990
the fire of the spiritual will is as we

1047
00:53:04,990 –> 00:53:08,619
said to fold it illumines and so helps

1048
00:53:08,619 –> 00:53:10,720
the spiritual man to see and it also

1049
00:53:10,720 –> 00:53:12,970
burns up the nets and meshes which

1050
00:53:12,970 –> 00:53:16,210
ensnare the spiritual man so with the

1051
00:53:16,210 –> 00:53:18,039
other means spiritual reading and

1052
00:53:18,039 –> 00:53:21,069
obedience each in its action is twofold

1053
00:53:21,069 –> 00:53:23,650
wearing away the psychical and up

1054
00:53:23,650 –> 00:53:30,510
building the spiritual man suture 3

1055
00:53:30,510 –> 00:53:34,329
these are the hindrances the darkness of

1056
00:53:34,329 –> 00:53:36,990
unwisdom self-assertion

1057
00:53:36,990 –> 00:53:43,270
lust hate attachment let us try to

1058
00:53:43,270 –> 00:53:45,339
translate this into terms of a psychical

1059
00:53:45,339 –> 00:53:48,010
and spiritual man the darkness of

1060
00:53:48,010 –> 00:53:50,289
unwisdom is primarily the self

1061
00:53:50,289 –> 00:53:52,420
absorption of the psychical man his

1062
00:53:52,420 –> 00:53:53,890
complete preoccupation with his own

1063
00:53:53,890 –> 00:53:56,130
hopes and fears plans and purposes

1064
00:53:56,130 –> 00:53:59,049
sensations and desires so that he fails

1065
00:53:59,049 –> 00:54:02,140
to see or refuses to see that there is a

1066
00:54:02,140 –> 00:54:04,990
spiritual man can so doggedly resists

1067
00:54:04,990 –> 00:54:06,880
all efforts of the spiritual man to cast

1068
00:54:06,880 –> 00:54:09,039
off his psychic tyrants and set himself

1069
00:54:09,039 –> 00:54:12,849
free this is a real darkness and all

1070
00:54:12,849 –> 00:54:14,380
those who deny the immortality of the

1071
00:54:14,380 –> 00:54:17,799
soul or deny the souls existence and so

1072
00:54:17,799 –> 00:54:19,270
lay out their lives wholly for the

1073
00:54:19,270 –> 00:54:21,039
psychical mortal man and his ambitions

1074
00:54:21,039 –> 00:54:23,700
are under the power of darkness

1075
00:54:23,700 –> 00:54:26,210
born of this darkness this

1076
00:54:26,210 –> 00:54:29,660
self-absorption is a dogged conviction

1077
00:54:29,660 –> 00:54:31,190
that the psychic personal man has

1078
00:54:31,190 –> 00:54:33,109
separate exclusive interests which he

1079
00:54:33,109 –> 00:54:35,750
can follow for himself alone and his

1080
00:54:35,750 –> 00:54:37,940
conviction when put into practice in our

1081
00:54:37,940 –> 00:54:39,740
life leads to contests with other

1082
00:54:39,740 –> 00:54:43,250
personalities and so to hate this hate

1083
00:54:43,250 –> 00:54:45,440
again makes against the spiritual man

1084
00:54:45,440 –> 00:54:47,810
since it hinders the revelation of the

1085
00:54:47,810 –> 00:54:49,609
high harmony between the spiritual man

1086
00:54:49,609 –> 00:54:52,220
and his other selves a harmony to be

1087
00:54:52,220 –> 00:54:53,780
revealed only through the practice of

1088
00:54:53,780 –> 00:54:56,359
love that perfect love which casts out

1089
00:54:56,359 –> 00:54:58,089
fear

1090
00:54:58,089 –> 00:55:01,339
in like manner lust is the psychic man’s

1091
00:55:01,339 –> 00:55:03,520
craving for the stimulus of sensation

1092
00:55:03,520 –> 00:55:06,050
the din of which smothers the voice of

1093
00:55:06,050 –> 00:55:08,690
the spiritual man has in Shakespeare’s

1094
00:55:08,690 –> 00:55:10,940
phrase the cackling geese would drown

1095
00:55:10,940 –> 00:55:13,820
the song of a nightingale and is craving

1096
00:55:13,820 –> 00:55:15,730
for stimulus is the fruit of weakness

1097
00:55:15,730 –> 00:55:17,900
coming from the failure to find strength

1098
00:55:17,900 –> 00:55:22,030
in the primal life of the spiritual man

1099
00:55:22,030 –> 00:55:23,869
attachment is but another name for

1100
00:55:23,869 –> 00:55:26,000
psychic self absorption for we are

1101
00:55:26,000 –> 00:55:28,280
absorbed not in outward things but

1102
00:55:28,280 –> 00:55:30,560
rather in their images within our minds

1103
00:55:30,560 –> 00:55:32,750
our inner eyes are fixed on them our

1104
00:55:32,750 –> 00:55:36,320
inner desires brood over them and we

1105
00:55:36,320 –> 00:55:37,849
blind ourselves to the presence of the

1106
00:55:37,849 –> 00:55:39,890
prisoner being meshed and fettered

1107
00:55:39,890 –> 00:55:47,480
spiritual man Sutra for the darkness of

1108
00:55:47,480 –> 00:55:48,020
unwisdom

1109
00:55:48,020 –> 00:55:50,839
is the field of the others these

1110
00:55:50,839 –> 00:55:53,180
hindrances may be dormant or worn thin

1111
00:55:53,180 –> 00:55:59,089
or suspended or expanded here we have

1112
00:55:59,089 –> 00:56:01,910
really two sutras in one the first has

1113
00:56:01,910 –> 00:56:03,950
been explained already in the darkness

1114
00:56:03,950 –> 00:56:07,480
of unwisdom grow the parasites hate lust

1115
00:56:07,480 –> 00:56:10,910
attachment they are all outgrowth of the

1116
00:56:10,910 –> 00:56:13,630
self absorption of the psychical self

1117
00:56:13,630 –> 00:56:16,220
next we are told that these barriers may

1118
00:56:16,220 –> 00:56:18,920
be either dormant or suspended or

1119
00:56:18,920 –> 00:56:22,910
expanded or one fin faults which are

1120
00:56:22,910 –> 00:56:24,680
dormant will be brought out through the

1121
00:56:24,680 –> 00:56:26,750
pressure of life or through the pressure

1122
00:56:26,750 –> 00:56:30,020
of strong aspiration thus expanded they

1123
00:56:30,020 –> 00:56:32,750
must be fought and conquered or if

1124
00:56:32,750 –> 00:56:35,089
Patanjali quaintly says they must be

1125
00:56:35,089 –> 00:56:38,390
worn thin as a veil might or the links

1126
00:56:38,390 –> 00:56:40,900
of manacles

1127
00:56:41,440 –> 00:56:45,790
Sutra 5 the darkness of ignorance is

1128
00:56:45,790 –> 00:56:49,790
holding that which is unendurable of

1129
00:56:49,790 –> 00:56:53,680
pain not the soul to be eternal pure

1130
00:56:53,680 –> 00:56:59,540
full of joy the soul this we have really

1131
00:56:59,540 –> 00:57:02,120
considered already the psychic man is

1132
00:57:02,120 –> 00:57:07,430
unendurable of pain not the soul not the

1133
00:57:07,430 –> 00:57:10,310
real self the spiritual man is enduring

1134
00:57:10,310 –> 00:57:14,600
pure full of joy the real self the

1135
00:57:14,600 –> 00:57:17,120
darkness having wisdom is therefore the

1136
00:57:17,120 –> 00:57:18,650
self absorption of the psychical

1137
00:57:18,650 –> 00:57:21,020
personal man to the exclusion of the

1138
00:57:21,020 –> 00:57:24,530
spiritual man it is a belief carried

1139
00:57:24,530 –> 00:57:26,840
into action that the personal man is the

1140
00:57:26,840 –> 00:57:29,090
real man the man for whom we should toil

1141
00:57:29,090 –> 00:57:31,880
for whom we should build for whom we

1142
00:57:31,880 –> 00:57:34,910
should live this is that psychical man

1143
00:57:34,910 –> 00:57:37,640
of whom it is said he that soweth to the

1144
00:57:37,640 –> 00:57:41,800
flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption

1145
00:57:43,480 –> 00:57:47,930
Sutra 6 self assertion comes from

1146
00:57:47,930 –> 00:57:50,360
thinking of the seer and the instrument

1147
00:57:50,360 –> 00:57:56,090
of vision as forming oneself this is a

1148
00:57:56,090 –> 00:57:57,740
fundamental idea of isang kiya

1149
00:57:57,740 –> 00:58:00,380
philosophy of which Yoga is a validly

1150
00:58:00,380 –> 00:58:03,170
the practical side to translate this

1151
00:58:03,170 –> 00:58:05,450
into our terms we may say that the seer

1152
00:58:05,450 –> 00:58:07,790
is a spiritual man the instrument of

1153
00:58:07,790 –> 00:58:10,370
vision is a psychical man through which

1154
00:58:10,370 –> 00:58:12,740
the spiritual man gains experience of

1155
00:58:12,740 –> 00:58:16,610
the outer world but we turn the servant

1156
00:58:16,610 –> 00:58:19,400
into the master we attribute to the

1157
00:58:19,400 –> 00:58:21,350
psychical man the personal self a

1158
00:58:21,350 –> 00:58:23,390
reality which really belongs to the

1159
00:58:23,390 –> 00:58:26,720
spiritual man alone and so thinking of

1160
00:58:26,720 –> 00:58:28,190
the quality of the spiritual man as

1161
00:58:28,190 –> 00:58:30,620
belonging to the psychical we emerge the

1162
00:58:30,620 –> 00:58:33,170
spiritual man in the psychical or as a

1163
00:58:33,170 –> 00:58:36,500
text says we think of the two as forming

1164
00:58:36,500 –> 00:58:42,290
oneself su-27

1165
00:58:42,290 –> 00:58:44,610
lust is arresting in the sense of

1166
00:58:44,610 –> 00:58:49,440
enjoyment this is an explained again and

1167
00:58:49,440 –> 00:58:53,670
again sensation as for example the sense

1168
00:58:53,670 –> 00:58:55,770
of taste is meant to be the guide to

1169
00:58:55,770 –> 00:58:58,530
action in this case the choice of

1170
00:58:58,530 –> 00:59:00,540
wholesome food and the avoidance of

1171
00:59:00,540 –> 00:59:03,810
poisonous and hurtful things but if we

1172
00:59:03,810 –> 00:59:06,180
rest in the sense of taste as a pleasure

1173
00:59:06,180 –> 00:59:06,900
in itself

1174
00:59:06,900 –> 00:59:09,570
rest that is in the psychical side of

1175
00:59:09,570 –> 00:59:12,660
taste we fall into gluttony and live to

1176
00:59:12,660 –> 00:59:16,200
eat instead of eating to live so with

1177
00:59:16,200 –> 00:59:18,330
the other great organic power the power

1178
00:59:18,330 –> 00:59:20,000
of reproduction

1179
00:59:20,000 –> 00:59:22,740
this lust comes into being through

1180
00:59:22,740 –> 00:59:25,110
resting in the sensation and looking for

1181
00:59:25,110 –> 00:59:31,710
pleasure from that Sutra eight hate is

1182
00:59:31,710 –> 00:59:37,110
arresting in the sense of pain pain

1183
00:59:37,110 –> 00:59:39,720
comes for the most part from the strife

1184
00:59:39,720 –> 00:59:41,850
of personalities the jarring discordant

1185
00:59:41,850 –> 00:59:45,060
I kick cells each of which Dean’s itself

1186
00:59:45,060 –> 00:59:48,810
Supreme a dwelling on this pain reads

1187
00:59:48,810 –> 00:59:51,630
hate which tears the warring cells yet

1188
00:59:51,630 –> 00:59:53,940
further asunder and puts new enmity

1189
00:59:53,940 –> 00:59:55,800
between them that’s hindering the

1190
00:59:55,800 –> 00:59:57,990
harmony of the real the reconciliation

1191
00:59:57,990 –> 01:00:05,400
through the soul suture nine attachment

1192
01:00:05,400 –> 01:00:08,180
is a desire toward life even in the wise

1193
01:00:08,180 –> 01:00:13,350
carried forward by its own energy the

1194
01:00:13,350 –> 01:00:15,270
life here desired is the psychic life

1195
01:00:15,270 –> 01:00:17,910
the intensely vibrating life of a

1196
01:00:17,910 –> 01:00:21,330
psychical self this prevails even in

1197
01:00:21,330 –> 01:00:23,550
those who have attained much wisdom so

1198
01:00:23,550 –> 01:00:25,170
long as it falls short of the wisdom of

1199
01:00:25,170 –> 01:00:27,510
complete renunciation complete obedience

1200
01:00:27,510 –> 01:00:29,910
to each beasts behest of the spiritual

1201
01:00:29,910 –> 01:00:32,580
man and of the master who guards and

1202
01:00:32,580 –> 01:00:35,940
aids the spiritual man the desire of

1203
01:00:35,940 –> 01:00:38,420
sensation the desire of psychic life

1204
01:00:38,420 –> 01:00:41,220
reproduces itself carried on by its own

1205
01:00:41,220 –> 01:00:43,680
energy and momentum and hence comes the

1206
01:00:43,680 –> 01:00:46,320
circle of death and rebirth death and

1207
01:00:46,320 –> 01:00:48,900
rebirth instead of the liberation of the

1208
01:00:48,900 –> 01:00:51,470
spiritual man

1209
01:00:52,289 –> 01:00:57,160
suture ten these hindrances when they

1210
01:00:57,160 –> 01:00:59,500
have become subtle are to be removed by

1211
01:00:59,500 –> 01:01:03,579
a counter-current the darkness of

1212
01:01:03,579 –> 01:01:05,710
unwisdom is to be removed by the light

1213
01:01:05,710 –> 01:01:07,859
of wisdom pursued through fervor

1214
01:01:07,859 –> 01:01:10,119
spiritual reading of holy teachings and

1215
01:01:10,119 –> 01:01:12,579
of life itself and by obedience to the

1216
01:01:12,579 –> 01:01:16,210
master lust is to be removed by pure

1217
01:01:16,210 –> 01:01:17,950
aspiration of spiritual life which

1218
01:01:17,950 –> 01:01:19,720
bringing true strength and stability

1219
01:01:19,720 –> 01:01:22,180
takes away the void of weakness which we

1220
01:01:22,180 –> 01:01:23,529
try to fill by the stimulus of

1221
01:01:23,529 –> 01:01:27,279
sensations hate is to be overcome by

1222
01:01:27,279 –> 01:01:29,799
love the fear that arises through the

1223
01:01:29,799 –> 01:01:32,289
sense of separate warring cells is to be

1224
01:01:32,289 –> 01:01:34,029
stilled by the realization of the one

1225
01:01:34,029 –> 01:01:36,940
self the one soul in all this

1226
01:01:36,940 –> 01:01:38,410
realization is the perfect love that

1227
01:01:38,410 –> 01:01:42,130
casts out fear the hindrances are said

1228
01:01:42,130 –> 01:01:44,109
to have become subtle when by initial

1229
01:01:44,109 –> 01:01:45,789
efforts they have been located and

1230
01:01:45,789 –> 01:01:51,910
recognized in the psychic nature Sutra

1231
01:01:51,910 –> 01:01:55,059
11 their active turnings are to be

1232
01:01:55,059 –> 01:01:59,890
removed by meditation here is in truth

1233
01:01:59,890 –> 01:02:02,920
the whole secret of yoga the science of

1234
01:02:02,920 –> 01:02:06,160
the soul the active turnings the

1235
01:02:06,160 –> 01:02:08,200
strident vibrations of selfishness lust

1236
01:02:08,200 –> 01:02:11,520
and hate are to be stilled by meditation

1237
01:02:11,520 –> 01:02:14,500
by letting heart and mind dwell in

1238
01:02:14,500 –> 01:02:16,960
spiritual life by lifting up the heart

1239
01:02:16,960 –> 01:02:19,569
to the strong silent life above which

1240
01:02:19,569 –> 01:02:21,279
rests in the stillness of eternal love

1241
01:02:21,279 –> 01:02:23,680
and needs no harsh vibration to convince

1242
01:02:23,680 –> 01:02:30,039
it of true being sit you’re 12 the

1243
01:02:30,039 –> 01:02:32,170
burden of bondage to sorrow has its root

1244
01:02:32,170 –> 01:02:35,349
in these hindrances it will be felt in

1245
01:02:35,349 –> 01:02:37,750
this life or in a life not yet

1246
01:02:37,750 –> 01:02:42,970
manifested the burden of bondage to

1247
01:02:42,970 –> 01:02:45,160
sorrow has its root in the darkness of

1248
01:02:45,160 –> 01:02:45,640
unwisdom

1249
01:02:45,640 –> 01:02:49,799
in selfishness in lust and hate in

1250
01:02:49,799 –> 01:02:53,799
attachment to sensation all these are in

1251
01:02:53,799 –> 01:02:56,380
the last analysis absorption in the

1252
01:02:56,380 –> 01:02:58,630
psychical self and this means sorrow

1253
01:02:58,630 –> 01:03:00,460
because it means the sense of

1254
01:03:00,460 –> 01:03:02,349
separateness and this means drawing

1255
01:03:02,349 –> 01:03:04,810
discord and inevitable death

1256
01:03:04,810 –> 01:03:07,060
but the psychical self will breed a new

1257
01:03:07,060 –> 01:03:10,690
psychical self in a new birth and so new

1258
01:03:10,690 –> 01:03:16,390
sorrows in a life not yet manifest Sutra

1259
01:03:16,390 –> 01:03:19,660
13 from this root their grow and ripen

1260
01:03:19,660 –> 01:03:22,170
the fruits of birth of the lifespan of

1261
01:03:22,170 –> 01:03:27,550
all that is tasted in life fully the

1262
01:03:27,550 –> 01:03:29,170
commons on this would be to write a

1263
01:03:29,170 –> 01:03:31,300
treatise on karma and its practical

1264
01:03:31,300 –> 01:03:33,790
working in detail whereby the place at

1265
01:03:33,790 –> 01:03:36,040
time of the next birth its content and

1266
01:03:36,040 –> 01:03:38,410
duration are determined and to do this

1267
01:03:38,410 –> 01:03:40,240
the present commentator is in nowise

1268
01:03:40,240 –> 01:03:42,730
fitted but this much is clearly

1269
01:03:42,730 –> 01:03:44,830
understood that through a kind of

1270
01:03:44,830 –> 01:03:47,290
spiritual gravitation the incarnated

1271
01:03:47,290 –> 01:03:50,200
self is drawn to a home and life circle

1272
01:03:50,200 –> 01:03:52,060
which will give it scope and discipline

1273
01:03:52,060 –> 01:03:54,010
and it’s need of discipline is clearly

1274
01:03:54,010 –> 01:03:55,510
conditioned by its character its

1275
01:03:55,510 –> 01:04:02,610
standing its accomplishment sutra 14

1276
01:04:02,610 –> 01:04:05,800
these bear fruits of rejoicing or of

1277
01:04:05,800 –> 01:04:08,110
affliction as they are sprung from holy

1278
01:04:08,110 –> 01:04:13,090
or unholy works since holiness is

1279
01:04:13,090 –> 01:04:15,220
obedience to divine law to the law of

1280
01:04:15,220 –> 01:04:17,500
divine harmony and obedience to

1281
01:04:17,500 –> 01:04:19,150
harmonies strengthens that harmony in

1282
01:04:19,150 –> 01:04:20,970
the soul which is the one true joy

1283
01:04:20,970 –> 01:04:23,740
therefore joy comes of holiness comes

1284
01:04:23,740 –> 01:04:25,060
indeed in no other way

1285
01:04:25,060 –> 01:04:28,000
and as unholiness is disobedience and

1286
01:04:28,000 –> 01:04:30,850
therefore discord therefore unholiness

1287
01:04:30,850 –> 01:04:33,250
mix for pain and this twofold law is

1288
01:04:33,250 –> 01:04:35,590
true whether the cause take effect in

1289
01:04:35,590 –> 01:04:41,170
this or any yet unmanifested birth Citra

1290
01:04:41,170 –> 01:04:44,850
15 to him who possesses discernment all

1291
01:04:44,850 –> 01:04:47,860
personal life is misery because it ever

1292
01:04:47,860 –> 01:04:48,850
waxes and wanes

1293
01:04:48,850 –> 01:04:50,910
is ever afflicted with restlessness

1294
01:04:50,910 –> 01:04:53,620
makes ever new dynamic impresses in the

1295
01:04:53,620 –> 01:04:56,620
mind and because all its activities war

1296
01:04:56,620 –> 01:05:00,640
with each other the whole life of the

1297
01:05:00,640 –> 01:05:02,950
psychic self is misery because it ever

1298
01:05:02,950 –> 01:05:05,470
waxes and wanes because birth brings

1299
01:05:05,470 –> 01:05:07,810
inevitable death because there is no

1300
01:05:07,810 –> 01:05:12,190
expectation without its shadow fear the

1301
01:05:12,190 –> 01:05:13,690
life of the psychic self is misery

1302
01:05:13,690 –> 01:05:15,100
because it is afflicted with

1303
01:05:15,100 –> 01:05:18,000
restlessness so that he who has much

1304
01:05:18,000 –> 01:05:20,280
fines not satisfaction but rather the

1305
01:05:20,280 –> 01:05:23,250
wedded hunger for more the fire is not

1306
01:05:23,250 –> 01:05:25,800
quenched by pouring oil on it so desire

1307
01:05:25,800 –> 01:05:27,480
is not quenched by the satisfaction of

1308
01:05:27,480 –> 01:05:30,840
desire again the life of the psychic

1309
01:05:30,840 –> 01:05:33,060
self is misery because it makes ever new

1310
01:05:33,060 –> 01:05:35,400
dynamic impresses on the mind because a

1311
01:05:35,400 –> 01:05:37,770
desire satisfied is that the seat from

1312
01:05:37,770 –> 01:05:39,390
which Springs the desire to find like

1313
01:05:39,390 –> 01:05:42,750
satisfaction again the appetite comes in

1314
01:05:42,750 –> 01:05:45,570
eating as the proverb says and grows by

1315
01:05:45,570 –> 01:05:48,000
what it feeds on and the psychic self

1316
01:05:48,000 –> 01:05:51,000
torn with conflicting desires is ever

1317
01:05:51,000 –> 01:05:53,520
the house divided against itself which

1318
01:05:53,520 –> 01:06:00,240
must surely fall sutra 16 this pain is

1319
01:06:00,240 –> 01:06:04,200
to be warded off before it has come in

1320
01:06:04,200 –> 01:06:06,000
other words we cannot cure the pains of

1321
01:06:06,000 –> 01:06:08,790
life by laying on them any balm we must

1322
01:06:08,790 –> 01:06:11,640
cut the root absorption in the psychical

1323
01:06:11,640 –> 01:06:14,730
self so it is said there is no cure for

1324
01:06:14,730 –> 01:06:16,890
the misery of longing but to fix the

1325
01:06:16,890 –> 01:06:23,820
heart upon the eternal Sutra 17 the

1326
01:06:23,820 –> 01:06:25,950
cause of what is to be warded off is the

1327
01:06:25,950 –> 01:06:29,870
absorption of the seer in things seen

1328
01:06:30,140 –> 01:06:32,430
here again we have the fundamental idea

1329
01:06:32,430 –> 01:06:34,320
of Assange kiyah which is the

1330
01:06:34,320 –> 01:06:35,880
intellectual counterpart of the yoga

1331
01:06:35,880 –> 01:06:38,850
system the cause of what is to be warded

1332
01:06:38,850 –> 01:06:41,820
off the root of misery is the absorption

1333
01:06:41,820 –> 01:06:43,680
of consciousness in the psychical man

1334
01:06:43,680 –> 01:06:45,360
and the things which beguile the

1335
01:06:45,360 –> 01:06:50,420
psychical man their cure is liberation

1336
01:06:51,470 –> 01:06:56,070
Sutra 18 things seen have as their

1337
01:06:56,070 –> 01:06:59,150
property manifestation action inertia

1338
01:06:59,150 –> 01:07:01,620
they form the basis of the elements and

1339
01:07:01,620 –> 01:07:04,410
defense powers they make for experience

1340
01:07:04,410 –> 01:07:09,210
and for liberation here is a whole

1341
01:07:09,210 –> 01:07:10,610
philosophy of life

1342
01:07:10,610 –> 01:07:13,710
things seem the total of the phenomena

1343
01:07:13,710 –> 01:07:15,500
possessed as their property

1344
01:07:15,500 –> 01:07:19,170
manifestation action inertia the

1345
01:07:19,170 –> 01:07:20,700
qualities of force and matter in

1346
01:07:20,700 –> 01:07:24,510
combination these in their grosser form

1347
01:07:24,510 –> 01:07:27,600
make the material world in their finer

1348
01:07:27,600 –> 01:07:30,000
more subjective form they make the

1349
01:07:30,000 –> 01:07:31,680
psychical world the world

1350
01:07:31,680 –> 01:07:34,070
sense impressions and mind images and

1351
01:07:34,070 –> 01:07:36,450
through this totality of the phenomenal

1352
01:07:36,450 –> 01:07:39,060
the soul gains experience and is

1353
01:07:39,060 –> 01:07:41,700
prepared for liberation in other words

1354
01:07:41,700 –> 01:07:44,730
the whole outer world exists for the

1355
01:07:44,730 –> 01:07:47,160
purposes of the soul and finds in this

1356
01:07:47,160 –> 01:07:54,060
it’s true reason for being suture 19 the

1357
01:07:54,060 –> 01:07:56,070
grades or layers of the three potencies

1358
01:07:56,070 –> 01:08:00,090
are the defined be undefined that with

1359
01:08:00,090 –> 01:08:01,950
distinctive mark that without

1360
01:08:01,950 –> 01:08:06,090
descriptive mark or as we might say

1361
01:08:06,090 –> 01:08:08,550
there are two strata of the physical and

1362
01:08:08,550 –> 01:08:11,040
two strata of the psychical realm in

1363
01:08:11,040 –> 01:08:14,520
each there is a site of form and the

1364
01:08:14,520 –> 01:08:17,399
site of force the form side of the

1365
01:08:17,399 –> 01:08:20,550
physical is your calls the defined the

1366
01:08:20,550 –> 01:08:22,680
four side of the physical is the

1367
01:08:22,680 –> 01:08:25,430
undefined that which has no boundaries

1368
01:08:25,430 –> 01:08:28,800
so in the psychical there is a form side

1369
01:08:28,800 –> 01:08:31,470
set with distinctive marks such as the

1370
01:08:31,470 –> 01:08:33,210
characteristic features of mine images

1371
01:08:33,210 –> 01:08:35,609
and there’s a four side without

1372
01:08:35,609 –> 01:08:37,830
distinctive marks such as the forces of

1373
01:08:37,830 –> 01:08:40,649
desire or fear which may flow now to

1374
01:08:40,649 –> 01:08:46,910
this mind image now to that suture 20

1375
01:08:46,910 –> 01:08:51,990
the seer is pure vision though pure he

1376
01:08:51,990 –> 01:08:53,279
looks out through the vesture of the

1377
01:08:53,279 –> 01:08:58,080
mind the seer as always is the spiritual

1378
01:08:58,080 –> 01:08:59,790
man whose deepest consciousness is pure

1379
01:08:59,790 –> 01:09:02,670
vision the pure life of the eternal but

1380
01:09:02,670 –> 01:09:04,680
the spiritual man as yet on seeing in

1381
01:09:04,680 –> 01:09:06,660
his proper person looks out in the world

1382
01:09:06,660 –> 01:09:08,640
through the eyes of the psychical man by

1383
01:09:08,640 –> 01:09:10,979
whom he has unfolded and enmeshed the

1384
01:09:10,979 –> 01:09:14,130
task is to set this prisoner free to

1385
01:09:14,130 –> 01:09:15,810
clear the dust of Ages from this very

1386
01:09:15,810 –> 01:09:22,439
temple suture 21 the very essence of

1387
01:09:22,439 –> 01:09:24,540
things seen is that they exist for this

1388
01:09:24,540 –> 01:09:28,979
year the things of outer life not only

1389
01:09:28,979 –> 01:09:31,170
material things but the psychic man also

1390
01:09:31,170 –> 01:09:33,660
exists in very deed for the purposes of

1391
01:09:33,660 –> 01:09:37,220
this year the soul the spiritual men

1392
01:09:37,220 –> 01:09:39,479
disaster comes when the psychical man

1393
01:09:39,479 –> 01:09:41,779
sets up so to speak on his own account

1394
01:09:41,779 –> 01:09:44,880
trying to live for himself alone

1395
01:09:44,880 –> 01:09:46,529
taking material things to Solace his

1396
01:09:46,529 –> 01:09:53,729
loneliness Sutra 22 though falling away

1397
01:09:53,729 –> 01:09:55,710
from him who has reached the goal things

1398
01:09:55,710 –> 01:09:57,450
seen have not altogether fallen away

1399
01:09:57,450 –> 01:10:01,770
since they still exist for others when

1400
01:10:01,770 –> 01:10:03,630
one of us Congress hate hate is not

1401
01:10:03,630 –> 01:10:05,640
thereby see part of the world since

1402
01:10:05,640 –> 01:10:09,150
others no hate and suffer hatred so with

1403
01:10:09,150 –> 01:10:11,250
other delusions which hold us in bondage

1404
01:10:11,250 –> 01:10:13,740
to material things and through which we

1405
01:10:13,740 –> 01:10:16,350
look at all material things when the

1406
01:10:16,350 –> 01:10:18,510
colored veil of illusion is gone the

1407
01:10:18,510 –> 01:10:20,690
world which saw through it is also gone

1408
01:10:20,690 –> 01:10:23,490
for now we see life as it is in the

1409
01:10:23,490 –> 01:10:26,040
white radiance of eternity but for

1410
01:10:26,040 –> 01:10:28,070
others the colored veil remain and

1411
01:10:28,070 –> 01:10:30,390
therefore the world thus colored by it

1412
01:10:30,390 –> 01:10:32,790
remains for them and will remain till

1413
01:10:32,790 –> 01:10:39,360
they to conquer delusions future 23 the

1414
01:10:39,360 –> 01:10:41,190
association of the fear with things seen

1415
01:10:41,190 –> 01:10:43,320
is the cause of the realizing of the

1416
01:10:43,320 –> 01:10:45,540
nature of things seen and also of the

1417
01:10:45,540 –> 01:10:49,040
realizing of the nature of this year

1418
01:10:49,340 –> 01:10:53,100
life is educative all life’s infinite

1419
01:10:53,100 –> 01:10:55,260
variety is for discipline for the

1420
01:10:55,260 –> 01:10:57,840
development of the soul so passing

1421
01:10:57,840 –> 01:10:59,970
through many lives the soul learns the

1422
01:10:59,970 –> 01:11:02,400
secrets of the world the agust laws that

1423
01:11:02,400 –> 01:11:03,660
are written in the form of a snow

1424
01:11:03,660 –> 01:11:06,270
crystal or the majestic order of the

1425
01:11:06,270 –> 01:11:09,450
stars yet all these laws are but

1426
01:11:09,450 –> 01:11:11,970
reflections the projections outward of

1427
01:11:11,970 –> 01:11:15,480
the laws of the soul therefore in

1428
01:11:15,480 –> 01:11:18,650
learning these the solar no itself all

1429
01:11:18,650 –> 01:11:21,480
life is but the mirror aware in the soul

1430
01:11:21,480 –> 01:11:29,280
learns to know its on face sutra 24 the

1431
01:11:29,280 –> 01:11:30,720
cause of this association is the

1432
01:11:30,720 –> 01:11:34,920
darkness of unwisdom the darkness of

1433
01:11:34,920 –> 01:11:36,240
unwisdom is the absorption of

1434
01:11:36,240 –> 01:11:37,860
consciousness and the personal life and

1435
01:11:37,860 –> 01:11:39,780
then the things seen by the personal

1436
01:11:39,780 –> 01:11:42,780
life this is the fall through which

1437
01:11:42,780 –> 01:11:44,850
comes experience the learning of the

1438
01:11:44,850 –> 01:11:47,280
lessons of life when they are learned

1439
01:11:47,280 –> 01:11:52,530
the day of redemption is at hand Sutra

1440
01:11:52,530 –> 01:11:55,920
25 the bringing of this Association to

1441
01:11:55,920 –> 01:11:57,990
an end by bringing the darkness of

1442
01:11:57,990 –> 01:11:58,650
unwisdom

1443
01:11:58,650 –> 01:12:02,070
it’s a great liberation this is a Sears

1444
01:12:02,070 –> 01:12:06,270
attainment of his own pure being when

1445
01:12:06,270 –> 01:12:08,460
the spiritual man has through the

1446
01:12:08,460 –> 01:12:11,310
psychical learned all life’s lessons the

1447
01:12:11,310 –> 01:12:13,050
time has come for him to put off the

1448
01:12:13,050 –> 01:12:15,660
veil and disguise as a psychical and to

1449
01:12:15,660 –> 01:12:18,090
stand revealed a king in the house is a

1450
01:12:18,090 –> 01:12:21,000
father so shall he enter into his

1451
01:12:21,000 –> 01:12:28,700
kingdom and go no more out sutra 26 a

1452
01:12:28,700 –> 01:12:30,540
discerning which is carried on without

1453
01:12:30,540 –> 01:12:36,090
wavering is a means of liberation here

1454
01:12:36,090 –> 01:12:38,460
we come close to the pure Vedanta with

1455
01:12:38,460 –> 01:12:40,380
its discernment between the eternal and

1456
01:12:40,380 –> 01:12:44,520
the temporal thank Paul following after

1457
01:12:44,520 –> 01:12:46,680
Philo and Plato lays down the same

1458
01:12:46,680 –> 01:12:49,230
fundamental principle the things seen

1459
01:12:49,230 –> 01:12:51,630
are temporal the things unseen are

1460
01:12:51,630 –> 01:12:53,120
eternal

1461
01:12:53,120 –> 01:12:55,740
Patanjali means something more than an

1462
01:12:55,740 –> 01:12:58,820
intellectual assent so this too is vital

1463
01:12:58,820 –> 01:13:01,620
he hasn’t view a constant discriminating

1464
01:13:01,620 –> 01:13:04,650
in act as well as thought of the two

1465
01:13:04,650 –> 01:13:06,270
ways which present themselves for every

1466
01:13:06,270 –> 01:13:08,820
deed or choice always to choose the

1467
01:13:08,820 –> 01:13:11,370
higher way that which makes for the

1468
01:13:11,370 –> 01:13:13,620
things eternal honesty rather than

1469
01:13:13,620 –> 01:13:16,280
robbery courage and not cowardice the

1470
01:13:16,280 –> 01:13:19,070
things of another rather than one’s own

1471
01:13:19,070 –> 01:13:22,680

successive stages

1476
01:13:39,230 –> 01:13:41,790
Patanjali text does not tell us what the

1477
01:13:41,790 –> 01:13:43,820
seven stages of this illumination are

1478
01:13:43,820 –> 01:13:47,000
the commentator thus describes them

1479
01:13:47,000 –> 01:13:49,740
first the danger to be escaped is

1480
01:13:49,740 –> 01:13:52,410
recognized it need not to be recognized

1481
01:13:52,410 –> 01:13:56,370
a second time second the causes of the

1482
01:13:56,370 –> 01:13:59,130
danger to be escaped or worn away they

1483
01:13:59,130 –> 01:14:01,040
need not be worn away a second time

1484
01:14:01,040 –> 01:14:03,720
third the way of escape is clearly

1485
01:14:03,720 –> 01:14:05,970

release belonging to incite the final

1490
01:14:18,150 –> 01:14:20,630
release from the psychic is threefold as

1491

fifth of the seven degrees the dominance

1492
01:14:23,610 –> 01:14:26,429
of its stinking is ended as six it’s

Patanjali with its found and luminous

1525
01:16:17,120 –> 01:16:19,370
the needs of yoga we may well be

1526
01:16:19,370 –> 01:16:22,100
astonished at their simplicity there is

1527
01:16:22,100 –> 01:16:23,860
little in them that is mysterious

1528
01:16:23,860 –> 01:16:27,410
they’re very familiar the essence of the

1529
01:16:27,410 –> 01:16:31,120

eight means are to be followed in their

order in the sense which will

1536
01:16:53,989 –> 01:16:56,989
immediately be made clear we can get

1537
01:16:56,989 –> 01:16:58,520
already understanding of the first two

1538
01:16:58,520 –> 01:17:00,469
by comparing them with the commandments

1539
01:17:00,469 –> 01:17:02,150
which must be obeyed by all good

1540
01:17:02,150 –> 01:17:04,460
citizens and the rules which are laid on

1541
01:17:04,460 –> 01:17:06,160
the members of religious orders until

1542
01:17:06,160 –> 01:17:09,260
one has fulfilled the first it is futile

1543
01:17:09,260 –> 01:17:11,199
to concern oneself with the second and

1544
01:17:11,199 –> 01:17:14,570
so with all the means of yoga they must

1545
01:17:14,570 –> 01:17:20,660
be taken in their order suture 30 the

1546
01:17:20,660 –> 01:17:22,420
commandments are these

1547
01:17:22,420 –> 01:17:26,350
non-injury truthfulness abstaining from

1548
01:17:26,350 –> 01:17:31,170
stealing from impurity from covetousness

1549
01:17:31,170 –> 01:17:34,000
these five precepts are almost exactly

1550
01:17:34,000 –> 01:17:35,560
the same as the Buddhist Commandments

1551
01:17:35,560 –> 01:17:39,910
not to kill not to steal not to be

1552
01:17:39,910 –> 01:17:42,310
guilty of incontinence not to drink

1553
01:17:42,310 –> 01:17:46,780
intoxicants to speak the truth almost

1554
01:17:46,780 –> 01:17:49,960
identical is st. Paul’s list thou shalt

1555
01:17:49,960 –> 01:17:52,450
not commit adultery thou shalt not kill

1556

answer made to the young man having

1559
01:18:00,640 –> 01:18:03,040
great possessions who ask what shall I

01:18:14,770 –> 01:18:16,780
considerable degree before there can be

1565
01:18:16,780 –> 01:18:18,220
much hope of success in the further

the broad general training of humanity

1575

each one of them rests on universal

1576
01:18:52,510 –> 01:18:53,940
spiritual law

1577
01:18:53,940 –> 01:18:56,500
each one of them expresses an attribute

1578
01:18:56,500 –> 01:19:00,250
or aspect of the self the eternal when

1579
01:19:00,250 –> 01:19:01,720
we violate one of the commandments we

1580
01:19:01,720 –> 01:19:04,150
set ourselves against the law and being

1581
01:19:04,150 –> 01:19:06,130
of the eternal thereby bringing

1582
01:19:06,130 –> 01:19:10,030
ourselves to inevitable confusion so the

1583
01:19:10,030 –> 01:19:11,590
first steps in spiritual life must be

1584
01:19:11,590 –> 01:19:13,510
taken by bringing ourselves into

1585
01:19:13,510 –> 01:19:15,280
voluntary obedience to these spiritual

1586
01:19:15,280 –> 01:19:18,010
laws and thus making ourselves partakers

1587
01:19:18,010 –> 01:19:20,560
of the spiritual powers the being of the

1588
01:19:20,560 –> 01:19:23,830
eternal like the law of gravity the need

1589
01:19:23,830 –> 01:19:26,320
of air to breathe these great laws no no

1590
01:19:26,320 –> 01:19:29,140
exceptions they’re enforced in all lands

1591
01:19:29,140 –> 01:19:34,170
throughout all time for all mankind

serenity fervent aspiration spiritual

1594
01:19:45,280 –> 01:19:47,920
reading and perfect obedience to the

1595
01:19:47,920 –> 01:19:53,320
master here we have a finer law one

1596
01:19:53,320 –> 01:19:55,209
which humanity as a whole is less ready

1597
01:19:55,209 –> 01:19:59,349
for less fit to obey yet we can see that

1598
01:19:59,349 –> 01:20:01,300
these rules are the same in essence as a

1599
01:20:01,300 –> 01:20:03,550
commandment but on a higher more

1600
01:20:03,550 –> 01:20:06,309
spiritual plane the commandments may be

1601
01:20:06,309 –> 01:20:08,849
obeyed in outer acts and abstinence –is

1602
01:20:08,849 –> 01:20:11,709
the rules demand obedience of the heart

1603
01:20:11,709 –> 01:20:14,949
and spirit a far more awakened and more

1604
01:20:14,949 –> 01:20:18,070
positive consciousness the rules are the

1605
01:20:18,070 –> 01:20:19,179
spiritual counterpart of the

1606
01:20:19,179 –> 01:20:21,519
commandments and they have finer degrees

1607
01:20:21,519 –> 01:20:27,550
for more advanced spiritual growth Sutra

1608
01:20:27,550 –> 01:20:31,300
33 when transgressions hinder the weight

1609
01:20:31,300 –> 01:20:33,189
of the imagination should be thrown on

1610
01:20:33,189 –> 01:20:37,300
the opposite side let us take a simple

1611
01:20:37,300 –> 01:20:40,380
case that of a thief a habitual criminal

1612
01:20:40,380 –> 01:20:42,579
who has drifted into stealing in

1613
01:20:42,579 –> 01:20:44,650
childhood before the moral consciousness

1614
01:20:44,650 –> 01:20:47,800
of the weekend we may imprison such a

1615
01:20:47,800 –> 01:20:50,229
thief and deprive him of all possibility

1616
01:20:50,229 –> 01:20:53,170
of further theft or of using the divine

1617
01:20:53,170 –> 01:20:56,499
gift of will or we may recognize his

1618
01:20:56,499 –> 01:20:59,170
disadvantages and help him gradually to

1619
01:20:59,170 –> 01:21:00,579
build up possessions which express his

1620
01:21:00,579 –> 01:21:04,030
will and draw forth his self-respect if

1621
01:21:04,030 –> 01:21:06,729
we imagine that after he has built well

1622
01:21:06,729 –> 01:21:09,099
as possessions have become dear to him

1623
01:21:09,099 –> 01:21:12,219
he himself is robbed then we can see how

1624
01:21:12,219 –> 01:21:13,900
he would come vividly to realize the

1625
01:21:13,900 –> 01:21:15,999
essence of theft and of honesty and

1626
01:21:15,999 –> 01:21:18,130
would cleave to honest dealings with

1627
01:21:18,130 –> 01:21:21,670
firm conviction in some such way does

1628
01:21:21,670 –> 01:21:24,400
the great law teach us our sorrows and

1629
01:21:24,400 –> 01:21:27,159
losses teach us the pain of the sorrow

1630
01:21:27,159 –> 01:21:30,249
and loss be inflict on others and so we

1631
01:21:30,249 –> 01:21:35,019
cease to inflict them now as to the more

1632
01:21:35,019 –> 01:21:38,619
direct application to conquer is sin let

1633
01:21:38,619 –> 01:21:41,590
heart and mind rest not on the sin but

1634
01:21:41,590 –> 01:21:44,559
on the contrary virtue let the sin be

1635
01:21:44,559 –> 01:21:46,420
forced out by positive growth in the

1636
01:21:46,420 –> 01:21:49,020
true direction not by direct opposition

1637
01:21:49,020 –> 01:21:51,730
turn away from the sin and go forward

1638
01:21:51,730 –> 01:21:54,490
courageously constructively creatively

1639
01:21:54,490 –> 01:21:58,150
in well-doing in this way the whole

1640
01:21:58,150 –> 01:21:59,920
nature will gradually be drawn up to the

1641
01:21:59,920 –> 01:22:02,020
higher level on which the sin does not

1642
01:22:02,020 –> 01:22:03,300
even exist

1643
01:22:03,300 –> 01:22:05,800
the conquest of a sin is a matter of

1644
01:22:05,800 –> 01:22:08,110
growth and evolution rather than of

1645
01:22:08,110 –> 01:22:15,430
opposition to 234 transgressions our

1646
01:22:15,430 –> 01:22:20,620

bearing endless fruit of ignorance and

1651
01:22:31,270 –> 01:22:34,570
pain therefore must the weight be cast

1652
01:22:34,570 –> 01:22:38,890

here is the sentence which may warn us

1701
01:25:07,120 –> 01:25:09,340
that beside the outer and apparent

1702
01:25:09,340 –> 01:25:11,170

new epic that of the spiritual men is

01:26:18,080 –> 01:26:20,750
opened the old creative power is

1727
01:26:20,750 –> 01:26:23,960
superseded and transcended a new

1728
01:26:23,960 –> 01:26:26,090
creative power that of the spiritual man

1729

power to work creatively in others for

righteousness and eternal life

1732
01:26:34,090 –> 01:26:36,980
one of the commentaries says that he who

1733
01:26:36,980 –> 01:26:38,840
is attained is able to transfer to the

1734
01:26:38,840 –> 01:26:40,760
minds of his disciples what he knows

1735
01:26:40,760 –> 01:26:43,070
concerning divine union and the means of

1736
01:26:43,070 –> 01:26:46,100
gaining it this is one of the powers of

purity suture 39 where there is firm

1738
01:26:52,969 –> 01:26:55,850
conquest of covetousness he who has

1739
01:26:55,850 –> 01:26:57,830
conquered it awakes to the how and why

1740
01:26:57,830 –> 01:27:03,560
of life so it is said that before we can

1741
01:27:03,560 –> 01:27:05,690
understand the laws of karma we must

1742
01:27:05,690 –> 01:27:08,630
free ourselves from karma the conquest

1743
01:27:08,630 –> 01:27:10,670
of covetousness brings this rich fruit

1744
01:27:10,670 –> 01:27:13,100
because the root of covetousness is the

1745
01:27:13,100 –> 01:27:15,620
desire of the individual soul the will

1746
01:27:15,620 –> 01:27:18,710
towards manifested life and where the

1747
01:27:18,710 –> 01:27:20,239
desire of the individual soul is

1748
01:27:20,239 –> 01:27:23,450
overcome by the superb still life of the

1749
01:27:23,450 –> 01:27:25,250
universal soul welling up in the heart

1750
01:27:25,250 –> 01:27:28,580
within the great secret is discerned the

1751
01:27:28,580 –> 01:27:30,830
secret that the individual soul is not

1752
01:27:30,830 –> 01:27:34,280
an isolated reality but the Ray the

1753
01:27:34,280 –> 01:27:36,710
manifest instrument of the life which

1754
01:27:36,710 –> 01:27:39,200
turns it this way and that until the

1755
01:27:39,200 –> 01:27:41,360
great work is accomplished the age long

1756
01:27:41,360 –> 01:27:44,719
lesson learned thus is the how and why

1757
01:27:44,719 –> 01:27:46,760
of life disclosed by ceasing from

1758
01:27:46,760 –> 01:27:50,660
covetousness the commentator says that

1759
01:27:50,660 –> 01:27:52,160
this includes the knowledge of one’s

1760
01:27:52,160 –> 01:27:59,630
former births future 40 through purity I

1761
01:27:59,630 –> 01:28:02,810
withdraw from one’s own bodily life of

1762
01:28:02,810 –> 01:28:04,430
ceasing from the saturation with the

1763
01:28:04,430 –> 01:28:08,630
bodily life of others as the spiritual

1764
01:28:08,630 –> 01:28:10,820
light grows in the heart within as a

1765
01:28:10,820 –> 01:28:13,250
taste for pure life grows stronger the

1766
01:28:13,250 –> 01:28:14,840
consciousness opens toward the great

1767
01:28:14,840 –> 01:28:17,360
secret places within where all life is

1768
01:28:17,360 –> 01:28:21,380
one where all lives are one thereafter

1769
01:28:21,380 –> 01:28:23,989
this outer manifested fugitive life

1770
01:28:23,989 –> 01:28:27,050
whether of ourselves or of others loses

1771
01:28:27,050 –> 01:28:28,430
something of its charm and glamour and

1772
01:28:28,430 –> 01:28:29,480
we see

1773
01:28:29,480 –> 01:28:33,350
rather the deep infinitude instead of

1774
01:28:33,350 –> 01:28:34,880
the outer form and surroundings of our

1775
01:28:34,880 –> 01:28:37,220
lives we long for their inner and

1776
01:28:37,220 –> 01:28:40,970
everlasting essence we desire not so

1777
01:28:40,970 –> 01:28:42,860
much outer converse and closeness to our

1778
01:28:42,860 –> 01:28:45,710
friends but rather the quiet communion

1779
01:28:45,710 –> 01:28:47,450
with them in the inner chamber of the

1780
01:28:47,450 –> 01:28:50,120
soul where spirit speaks to spirit and

1781
01:28:50,120 –> 01:28:53,420
spirit answers where alienation and

1782
01:28:53,420 –> 01:28:56,480
separation never enter where sickness

1783
01:28:56,480 –> 01:29:02,870
and sorrow and deaths cannot come Sutra

1784
01:29:02,870 –> 01:29:06,650
41 – the pure of heart comes also a

1785
01:29:06,650 –> 01:29:10,190
quiet spirit one pointed thought the

1786
01:29:10,190 –> 01:29:12,800
victory over sensuality and fitness to

1787
01:29:12,800 –> 01:29:17,810
behold the soul blessed are the pure in

who is the supreme soul the ultimate

1790
01:29:22,790 –> 01:29:26,600
self of all beings in the deepest sense

1791
01:29:26,600 –> 01:29:29,380
purity means fitness for this vision and

1792
01:29:29,380 –> 01:29:32,000
also a heart cleanse from all disquiet

1793
01:29:32,000 –> 01:29:34,670
from all wandering and unbridled thought

1794
01:29:34,670 –> 01:29:37,250
from the torment of sensuous imaginings

1795
01:29:37,250 –> 01:29:40,250
and when the spirit is left cleansed and

1796
01:29:40,250 –> 01:29:42,860
pure it becomes at one in essence with

1797
01:29:42,860 –> 01:29:45,560
its source the Great Spirit the primal

wall is broken down then shall the pure

1819
01:30:50,330 –> 01:30:52,430
wearing away of impurities and through

1820
01:30:52,430 –> 01:30:56,690
fervent aspiration this is true of the

1821
01:30:56,690 –> 01:30:58,970
physical power and of those which dwell

1822
01:30:58,970 –> 01:31:01,220
in the higher vest earth there must be

1823
01:31:01,220 –> 01:31:04,040
first purity as the blood must be pure

before one can attain to physical health

1825

the fire of genius is something more

1834
01:31:29,990 –> 01:31:32,450
than a phrase for there can be no genius

1835
01:31:32,450 –> 01:31:34,220
without the celestial fire of the

1836
01:31:34,220 –> 01:31:40,880
awakened spiritual suture 44 through

1837
01:31:40,880 –> 01:31:42,680
spiritual reading the disciple gains

1838
01:31:42,680 –> 01:31:44,540
communion with a divine power on which

1839
01:31:44,540 –> 01:31:48,620
his heart is set spiritual reading meant

1840
01:31:48,620 –> 01:31:51,260
for ancient India something more than it

1841
01:31:51,260 –> 01:31:54,770
does with us it meant first the recital

1842
01:31:54,770 –> 01:31:57,800
of sacred texts which inner very sounds

1843
01:31:57,800 –> 01:32:00,980
had mystical potencies and it meant a

1844
01:32:00,980 –> 01:32:02,600
recital of texts which were divinely

1845
01:32:02,600 –> 01:32:05,210
emanated and held in themselves so

1846
01:32:05,210 –> 01:32:09,230
living potent essence of the divine for

1847
01:32:09,230 –> 01:32:11,660
us spiritual reading means a communing

1848
01:32:11,660 –> 01:32:13,190
with the recorded teachings of the

1849
01:32:13,190 –> 01:32:15,590
Masters of wisdom whereby we read our

1850
01:32:15,590 –> 01:32:18,380
selves into the Masters mind just as

1851
01:32:18,380 –> 01:32:20,000
through his music one can enter into the

1852
01:32:20,000 –> 01:32:24,080
mind and soul of a master musician it

1853
01:32:24,080 –> 01:32:25,850
has been well said that all true art is

1854
01:32:25,850 –> 01:32:28,310
contagion of feeling so that through the

1855
01:32:28,310 –> 01:32:30,680
true reading of true books we do indeed

1856
01:32:30,680 –> 01:32:32,540
read ourselves into the spirit of the

1857
01:32:32,540 –> 01:32:35,090
Masters share in the atmosphere their

1858
01:32:35,090 –> 01:32:37,580
wisdom and power and come at last into

1859
01:32:37,580 –> 01:32:44,210
their very presence Sutra 45 soul vision

1860
01:32:44,210 –> 01:32:46,040
is perfected through perfect obedience

1861
01:32:46,040 –> 01:32:50,270
to the master the sorrow and darkness of

1862
01:32:50,270 –> 01:32:52,490
life come of the erring personal will

1863
01:32:52,490 –> 01:32:54,530
which sets itself against the will of

1864
01:32:54,530 –> 01:32:56,970
the soul the one great life

1865
01:32:56,970 –> 01:32:59,350
the error of a personal will is

1866
01:32:59,350 –> 01:33:02,230
inevitable since each will must be free

1867
01:33:02,230 –> 01:33:06,010
to choose to try and fail and so to find

1868
01:33:06,010 –> 01:33:08,890
the path and sorrow and darkness are

1869
01:33:08,890 –> 01:33:11,470
inevitable until the path we found and

1870
01:33:11,470 –> 01:33:14,050
the personal will made once more one

1871
01:33:14,050 –> 01:33:16,060
with the greater will wherein it finds

1872
01:33:16,060 –> 01:33:19,680
rest and power without losing freedom in

1873
01:33:19,680 –> 01:33:23,740
his will is our peace and with that

1874
01:33:23,740 –> 01:33:26,470
peace comes light soul vision is

1875
01:33:26,470 –> 01:33:32,850
perfected through obedience Sutra 46

1876
01:33:32,850 –> 01:33:35,950
right poised must be firm and without

1877
01:33:35,950 –> 01:33:40,240
screen here we approach a section of the

1878
01:33:40,240 –> 01:33:43,210
teaching which has manifestly a two-fold

1879
01:33:43,210 –> 01:33:45,820
meaning the first is physical and

1880
01:33:45,820 –> 01:33:47,740
concerns the bodily position of the

1881
01:33:47,740 –> 01:33:50,670
student and the regulation of breathing

1882
01:33:50,670 –> 01:33:53,020
these things have their direct influence

1883
01:33:53,020 –> 01:33:55,450
upon soul life the life of the spiritual

1884
01:33:55,450 –> 01:33:57,790
man since it is always and everywhere

1885
01:33:57,790 –> 01:34:00,130
true that our study demands a sound mind

1886
01:34:00,130 –> 01:34:03,790
in a sound body the present sentence

1887
01:34:03,790 –> 01:34:05,530
declares that for work and for

1888
01:34:05,530 –> 01:34:08,470
meditation the position of the body must

1889
01:34:08,470 –> 01:34:11,650
be steady and without stream in order to

1890
01:34:11,650 –> 01:34:13,060
define our currents of life they run

1891
01:34:13,060 –> 01:34:16,420
their course it applies further to the

1892
01:34:16,420 –> 01:34:19,450
poise of the soul that find balance and

1893
01:34:19,450 –> 01:34:22,270
stability which nothing can shake where

1894
01:34:22,270 –> 01:34:24,190
the consciousness rests on the firm

1895
01:34:24,190 –> 01:34:27,340
foundation the spiritual being this is

1896
01:34:27,340 –> 01:34:30,220
indeed the house set upon a rock which

1897
01:34:30,220 –> 01:34:34,710
the wind and waves beat upon in vain

1898
01:34:35,190 –> 01:34:40,330
Sutra 47 right poise is to be gained by

1899
01:34:40,330 –> 01:34:42,850
steady and temperate effort and by

1900
01:34:42,850 –> 01:34:45,960
setting the heart upon the everlasting

1901
01:34:45,960 –> 01:34:48,930
here again there is the twofold meaning

1902
01:34:48,930 –> 01:34:51,520
for physical poise is to be gained by

1903
01:34:51,520 –> 01:34:53,770
steady effort of the muscles by gradual

1904
01:34:53,770 –> 01:34:55,930
and why is training linked with the

1905
01:34:55,930 –> 01:34:58,090
right understanding of and relation with

1906
01:34:58,090 –> 01:35:00,330
the universal force of gravitiy

1907
01:35:00,330 –> 01:35:02,980
uprightness of body demands that both

1908
01:35:02,980 –> 01:35:05,910
these conditions shall be fulfilled in

1909
01:35:05,910 –> 01:35:09,010
like manner the firm and upright poise

1910
01:35:09,010 –> 01:35:10,480
of the spiritual man

1911
01:35:10,480 –> 01:35:12,460
is to be gained by steady and continued

1912
01:35:12,460 –> 01:35:15,790
effort always guided by wisdom and by

1913
01:35:15,790 –> 01:35:18,280
setting the heart on the eternal filling

1914
01:35:18,280 –> 01:35:19,600
this full with the atmosphere of the

1915
01:35:19,600 –> 01:35:22,420
spiritual world neither is effective

1916
01:35:22,420 –> 01:35:25,510
without the other aspiration without

1917
01:35:25,510 –> 01:35:27,940
effort brings weakness effort without

1918
01:35:27,940 –> 01:35:30,850
aspiration bring the false strength not

1919
01:35:30,850 –> 01:35:33,610
resting on enduring things the two

1920
01:35:33,610 –> 01:35:35,590
together make for the right poise which

1921
01:35:35,590 –> 01:35:37,330
sets the spiritual man firmly and

1922
01:35:37,330 –> 01:35:44,980
steadfastly on his feasts Citra 48 the

1923
01:35:44,980 –> 01:35:47,500
fruit of right poise is the strength to

1924
01:35:47,500 –> 01:35:49,390
resist the shock of infatuation or

1925
01:35:49,390 –> 01:35:55,150
sorrow in a simpler physical sense which

1926
01:35:55,150 –> 01:35:56,560
is also covered by the wording of the

1927
01:35:56,560 –> 01:35:58,930
original the sentence means that wise

1928
01:35:58,930 –> 01:36:00,940
effort establishes such bodily poise

1929
01:36:00,940 –> 01:36:02,950
that the accidents of life cannot

1930
01:36:02,950 –> 01:36:05,260
disturb it as the captain remains steady

1931
01:36:05,260 –> 01:36:09,430
though disaster overtake his ship but

1932
01:36:09,430 –> 01:36:10,570
the deeper sentence is far more

1933
01:36:10,570 –> 01:36:13,840
important the spiritual man too must

1934
01:36:13,840 –> 01:36:16,360
learn to withstand all shocks sure means

1935
01:36:16,360 –> 01:36:18,250
steadfast through the perturbations of

1936
01:36:18,250 –> 01:36:20,980
external things and the storms and ruins

1937
01:36:20,980 –> 01:36:23,950
of the psychical world this is the power

1938
01:36:23,950 –> 01:36:26,350
which is gained by wise continuous

1939
01:36:26,350 –> 01:36:28,540
effort and by filling the spirit with

1940
01:36:28,540 –> 01:36:34,860
the atmosphere of the eternal Sutra 49

1941
01:36:34,860 –> 01:36:37,930
when this is gained there follows the

1942
01:36:37,930 –> 01:36:40,030
right guidance of the life currents the

1943
01:36:40,030 –> 01:36:41,590
control of the incoming and outgoing

1944
01:36:41,590 –> 01:36:46,540
breath it is well understood today that

1945
01:36:46,540 –> 01:36:48,340
most of our maladies come from impure

1946
01:36:48,340 –> 01:36:51,580
conditions of the blood it is coming to

1947
01:36:51,580 –> 01:36:54,340
be understood that right breathing right

1948
01:36:54,340 –> 01:36:56,739
oxygenation will do very much to keep

1949
01:36:56,739 –> 01:36:59,739
the blood clean and pure therefore a

1950
01:36:59,739 –> 01:37:01,480
right knowledge of breathing is a part

1951
01:37:01,480 –> 01:37:04,510
of the science of life but the deeper

1952
01:37:04,510 –> 01:37:07,060
meaning is that the spiritual man when

1953
01:37:07,060 –> 01:37:08,710
he has gained poise through right effort

1954
01:37:08,710 –> 01:37:11,860
and aspiration can stand firm and guide

1955
01:37:11,860 –> 01:37:14,200
the currents of his life both the

1956
01:37:14,200 –> 01:37:16,239
incoming current of events and the

1957
01:37:16,239 –> 01:37:20,200
outgoing current exact exactly the same

1958
01:37:20,200 –> 01:37:22,960
symbolism is used in the same knot that

1959
01:37:22,960 –> 01:37:24,340
which goeth into the mouth

1960
01:37:24,340 –> 01:37:27,100
pilot them in but that which cometh out

1961
01:37:27,100 –> 01:37:30,310
of the mouth this defileth aminute those

1962
01:37:30,310 –> 01:37:31,930
things which proceed out of the mouth

1963
01:37:31,930 –> 01:37:34,930
come forth from the heart out of the

1964
01:37:34,930 –> 01:37:37,590
heart proceed evil thoughts murders

1965
01:37:37,590 –> 01:37:40,920
uncleanness thefts false witness

1966
01:37:40,920 –> 01:37:44,890
blasphemies therefore the first step in

1967
01:37:44,890 –> 01:37:48,600
purification is to keep the commandments

1968
01:37:48,600 –> 01:37:52,630
sutra 50 the life current is either

1969
01:37:52,630 –> 01:37:56,650
outward or inward or balanced it is

1970
01:37:56,650 –> 01:37:59,190
regulated according to place time number

1971
01:37:59,190 –> 01:38:03,190
it is prolonged and subtle the technical

1972
01:38:03,190 –> 01:38:05,310
physical side of this has its value in

1973
01:38:05,310 –> 01:38:07,600
the breast there should be right in

1974
01:38:07,600 –> 01:38:09,790
breathing solid bethe period of pause

1975
01:38:09,790 –> 01:38:12,070
when the air comes into contact with the

1976
01:38:12,070 –> 01:38:14,410
blood and this again followed by right

1977
01:38:14,410 –> 01:38:16,780
out breathing even steady

1978
01:38:16,780 –> 01:38:20,470
silence further the lungs should be

1979
01:38:20,470 –> 01:38:23,140
evenly filled many maladies may arise

1980
01:38:23,140 –> 01:38:24,850
from the neglect and consequent

1981
01:38:24,850 –> 01:38:26,470
weakening of some region of the lungs

1982
01:38:26,470 –> 01:38:29,560
and the number of breaths is so

1983
01:38:29,560 –> 01:38:31,840
important so closely related to health

1984
01:38:31,840 –> 01:38:35,440
that every nurses chart records it but

1985
01:38:35,440 –> 01:38:37,060
the deeper meaning is concerned with the

1986
01:38:37,060 –> 01:38:39,820
currents of life with that which goes

1987
01:38:39,820 –> 01:38:45,660
into and comes out of the heart to 251

1988
01:38:45,660 –> 01:38:49,090
the fourth degree transcends external

1989
01:38:49,090 –> 01:38:52,900
and internal objects the inner meaning

1990
01:38:52,900 –> 01:38:54,910
seems to be that in addition to the

1991
01:38:54,910 –> 01:38:56,140
three degrees of control already

1992
01:38:56,140 –> 01:38:58,630
described control that is over the

1993
01:38:58,630 –> 01:39:00,580
incoming current of life over the

1994
01:39:00,580 –> 01:39:02,680
outgoing current and over the condition

1995
01:39:02,680 –> 01:39:05,710
of pause or quiescence there is a fourth

1996
01:39:05,710 –> 01:39:07,870
degree of control which holds in

1997
01:39:07,870 –> 01:39:10,300
complete mastery both the outer passage

1998
01:39:10,300 –> 01:39:12,460
of events and the inner current of

1999
01:39:12,460 –> 01:39:14,710
thoughts and emotions a condition of

2000
01:39:14,710 –> 01:39:17,230
perfect poise and stability in the midst

2001
01:39:17,230 –> 01:39:21,150
of the flux of things outward and inward

2002
01:39:22,350 –> 01:39:26,200
352 thereby is worn away the veil which

2003
01:39:26,200 –> 01:39:30,580
covers up the light the valence a

2004
01:39:30,580 –> 01:39:32,740
psychic nature the web of emotions

2005
01:39:32,740 –> 01:39:35,650
desires argumentative trains of thought

2006
01:39:35,650 –> 01:39:37,780
which cover up and obscure the

2007
01:39:37,780 –> 01:39:40,120
by absorbing the entire attention and

2008
01:39:40,120 –> 01:39:41,710
keeping the consciousness in the psychic

2009
01:39:41,710 –> 01:39:44,860
grown when hopes and fears are reckoned

2010
01:39:44,860 –> 01:39:47,200
at their true worth in comparison with

2011
01:39:47,200 –> 01:39:49,690
lasting possessions of the soul when the

2012
01:39:49,690 –> 01:39:51,340
outer reflections of things have ceased

2013
01:39:51,340 –> 01:39:53,890
to distract us from inner realities when

2014
01:39:53,890 –> 01:39:55,300
argumentative thoughts no longer

2015
01:39:55,300 –> 01:39:57,340
entangles us but yields its place to

2016
01:39:57,340 –> 01:40:00,190
flashing intuition the certainty which

2017
01:40:00,190 –> 01:40:02,410
springs from within then is the veil

2018
01:40:02,410 –> 01:40:04,390
weren’t away the consciousness is drawn

2019
01:40:04,390 –> 01:40:07,090
from the psychical to the spiritual from

2020
01:40:07,090 –> 01:40:09,940
the temporal to the eternal then is the

2021
01:40:09,940 –> 01:40:16,660
light unveiled sutra 53 dense comes the

2022
01:40:16,660 –> 01:40:19,830
minds power to hold itself in the light

2023
01:40:19,830 –> 01:40:22,720
it has been well said that what we most

2024
01:40:22,720 –> 01:40:24,610
need is a Faculty of spiritual attention

2025
01:40:24,610 –> 01:40:26,950
and in the same direction of thought it

2026
01:40:26,950 –> 01:40:29,050
has been eloquently declared the prayer

2027
01:40:29,050 –> 01:40:31,540
does not consist in our catching God’s

2028
01:40:31,540 –> 01:40:34,180
attention but rather in our allowing God

2029
01:40:34,180 –> 01:40:37,450
to hold our attention the vital matter

2030
01:40:37,450 –> 01:40:39,580
is that we need to disentangle our

2031
01:40:39,580 –> 01:40:41,110
consciousness from the noisy and

2032
01:40:41,110 –> 01:40:43,390
perturbed thraldom of the psychical and

2033
01:40:43,390 –> 01:40:45,430
to come to consciousness as the

2034
01:40:45,430 –> 01:40:49,240
spiritual map this we must do first by

2035
01:40:49,240 –> 01:40:51,610
purification through the commandments

2036
01:40:51,610 –> 01:40:54,190
and the rules and second through the

2037
01:40:54,190 –> 01:40:56,650
Faculty of spiritual attention by

2038
01:40:56,650 –> 01:40:58,300
steadily heating endless fine

2039
01:40:58,300 –> 01:41:00,520
intimations of a spiritual power within

2040
01:41:00,520 –> 01:41:02,770
us and by intending our consciousness

2041
01:41:02,770 –> 01:41:03,330
there to

2042
01:41:03,330 –> 01:41:05,590
thus by degree is transferring the

2043
01:41:05,590 –> 01:41:07,180
center of consciousness from the

2044
01:41:07,180 –> 01:41:10,480
psychical to the spiritual it is a

2045
01:41:10,480 –> 01:41:13,060
question first of love and then of

2046
01:41:13,060 –> 01:41:19,120
attention Sutra 54 the right withdrawal

2047
01:41:19,120 –> 01:41:21,400
is the disengaging of the powers from

2048
01:41:21,400 –> 01:41:23,560
entanglement and outer things as a

2049
01:41:23,560 –> 01:41:25,090
psychic nature has been withdrawn and

2050
01:41:25,090 –> 01:41:27,210
stilled

2051
01:41:27,210 –> 01:41:30,040
to understand this let us reverse the

2052
01:41:30,040 –> 01:41:31,960
process and think of the one

2053
01:41:31,960 –> 01:41:33,900
consciousness centered in the soul

2054
01:41:33,900 –> 01:41:36,250
gradually expanding and taking on the

2055
01:41:36,250 –> 01:41:38,640
form of the different perceptive powers

2056
01:41:38,640 –> 01:41:40,720
the one will at the same time

2057
01:41:40,720 –> 01:41:42,910
differentiating itself into the very

2058
01:41:42,910 –> 01:41:46,480
powers of action now let us imagine this

2059
01:41:46,480 –> 01:41:48,760
to be reversed so that the spiritual

2060
01:41:48,760 –> 01:41:50,230
force which has gone into the

2061
01:41:50,230 –> 01:41:51,580
differentiated powers

2062
01:41:51,580 –> 01:41:53,920
is once more gathered together into the

2063
01:41:53,920 –> 01:41:56,140
inner power of intuition and spiritual

2064
01:41:56,140 –> 01:41:58,690
will taking on that unity which is a

2065
01:41:58,690 –> 01:42:00,420
hallmark of spiritual things as

2066
01:42:00,420 –> 01:42:03,360
diversity is the seal of material things

2067
01:42:03,360 –> 01:42:05,890
it is all a matter of love for the

2068
01:42:05,890 –> 01:42:07,440
quality of spiritual consciousness as

2069
01:42:07,440 –> 01:42:10,390
against psychical consciousness of love

2070
01:42:10,390 –> 01:42:13,330
and attention for where the heart is

2071
01:42:13,330 –> 01:42:16,330
very will the treasure be also where the

2072
01:42:16,330 –> 01:42:18,700
consciousness is there will the vesture

2073
01:42:18,700 –> 01:42:24,870

2075
01:42:27,910 –> 01:42:32,020
the powers when the spiritual condition

2076
01:42:32,020 –> 01:42:34,360
which we have described is reached with

2077
01:42:34,360 –> 01:42:37,480
its purity poised and illuminated vision

2078
01:42:37,480 –> 01:42:39,730
the spiritual man is coming into his

2079
01:42:39,730 –> 01:42:42,010
inheritance and gaining complete mastery

2080
01:42:42,010 –> 01:42:45,460
of his powers indeed much of the

2081
01:42:45,460 –> 01:42:47,020
struggle to keep the commandments and

2082
01:42:47,020 –> 01:42:48,640
the rules has been paving the way for

2083
01:42:48,640 –> 01:42:51,310
this mastery through this very struggle

2084
01:42:51,310 –> 01:42:53,410
and sacrifice the mastery has become

2085
01:42:53,410 –> 01:42:56,230
possible just as to use saint-paul

2086
01:42:56,230 –> 01:42:58,810
simile the athlete gains the mastery in

2087
01:42:58,810 –> 01:43:00,370
the contest and erased

2088
01:43:00,370 –> 01:43:02,500
through the sacrifice of his long and

2089
01:43:02,500 –> 01:43:04,290
arduous training

2090
01:43:04,290 –> 01:43:10,900

book of the sutras is the book of

2110
01:44:10,300 –> 01:44:13,480
spiritual powers in considering these

2111
01:44:13,480 –> 01:44:15,820
spiritual powers two things must be

2112
01:44:15,820 –> 01:44:19,150
understood and kept in memory the first

2113
01:44:19,150 –> 01:44:22,150
of use is this these spiritual powers

2114
01:44:22,150 –> 01:44:24,490
can only be gained when the development

2115
01:44:24,490 –> 01:44:26,230
described in the first and second books

2116
01:44:26,230 –> 01:44:29,080
has been measurably attained when the

2117
01:44:29,080 –> 01:44:31,240
Commandments have been kept the rules

2118
01:44:31,240 –> 01:44:33,820
faithfully followed and the experiences

2119
01:44:33,820 –> 01:44:34,990
which are described have been passed

2120
01:44:34,990 –> 01:44:38,050
through for only after this is the

2121
01:44:38,050 –> 01:44:40,420
spiritual man so far grown so far

2122
01:44:40,420 –> 01:44:42,730
disentangled from the psychical bandages

2123
01:44:42,730 –> 01:44:44,320
and veils which have confined and

2124
01:44:44,320 –> 01:44:46,450
blinded him that he can use his proper

2125
01:44:46,450 –> 01:44:49,330
powers and faculties for this is the

2126
01:44:49,330 –> 01:44:52,240
secret of all spiritual powers they’re

2127
01:44:52,240 –> 01:44:54,250
in no sense an abnormal or supernatural

2128
01:44:54,250 –> 01:44:57,400
overgrowth upon the material man but a

2129
01:44:57,400 –> 01:44:59,860
rather the powers and faculties inherent

2130
01:44:59,860 –> 01:45:02,410
in the spiritual man entirely natural to

2131
01:45:02,410 –> 01:45:04,900
him and coming naturally into activity

2132
01:45:04,900 –> 01:45:07,360
as a spiritual man is disentangled and

2133
01:45:07,360 –> 01:45:09,700
liberated from psychical bondage through

2134
01:45:09,700 –> 01:45:11,170
keeping the commandments and rules

2135
01:45:11,170 –> 01:45:15,340
already set forth as the personal man is

2136
01:45:15,340 –> 01:45:17,260
the limitation and inversion of the

2137
01:45:17,260 –> 01:45:19,510
spiritual man all his faculties and

2138
01:45:19,510 –> 01:45:20,980
powers are inversions of the powers of

2139
01:45:20,980 –> 01:45:24,670
the spiritual man in a single phrase his

2140
01:45:24,670 –> 01:45:26,740
self seeking is the inversion of the

2141
01:45:26,740 –> 01:45:29,080
self seeking which is a very being of

2142
01:45:29,080 –> 01:45:31,480
the spiritual man the ceaseless search

2143
01:45:31,480 –> 01:45:34,150
after the divine and a gust self of all

2144
01:45:34,150 –> 01:45:37,720
beings this inversion is corrected by

2145
01:45:37,720 –> 01:45:39,400
keeping the commandments and rules and

2146
01:45:39,400 –> 01:45:42,130
gradually as the inversion is overcome

2147
01:45:42,130 –> 01:45:44,530
the spiritual man is extricated and

2148
01:45:44,530 –> 01:45:45,400
comes in

2149
01:45:45,400 –> 01:45:47,110
possession and free exercise of his

2150
01:45:47,110 –> 01:45:50,140
powers the spiritual powers therefore

2151
01:45:50,140 –> 01:45:51,940
are the powers of the grown and

2152
01:45:51,940 –> 01:45:54,489
liberated spiritual man they can only be

2153
01:45:54,489 –> 01:45:56,650
developed and used as the spiritual man

2154
01:45:56,650 –> 01:45:58,870
grows and attains liberation through

2155
01:45:58,870 –> 01:46:01,870
obedience this is the first thing to be

2156
01:46:01,870 –> 01:46:04,000
kept in mind in all that is said of

2157
01:46:04,000 –> 01:46:05,920
spiritual powers in the third and fourth

2158
01:46:05,920 –> 01:46:09,130
books of the sutras the second thing to

2159
01:46:09,130 –> 01:46:12,179
be understood and kept in mind is this

2160
01:46:12,179 –> 01:46:14,620
just as our modern sages have discerned

2161
01:46:14,620 –> 01:46:16,900
and taught that all matter is ultimately

2162
01:46:16,900 –> 01:46:19,239
one and eternal definitely related

2163
01:46:19,239 –> 01:46:22,030
throughout the whole wide universe just

2164
01:46:22,030 –> 01:46:23,980
as they have discerned and taught that

2165
01:46:23,980 –> 01:46:26,530
all force is one and eternal so

2166
01:46:26,530 –> 01:46:27,640
coordinated throughout the whole

2167
01:46:27,640 –> 01:46:29,790
universe that whatever effects any atom

2168
01:46:29,790 –> 01:46:32,380
measurably affects the whole boundless

2169
01:46:32,380 –> 01:46:34,570
realm of matter and force to the most

2170
01:46:34,570 –> 01:46:36,880
distant star or nebula on the dim

2171
01:46:36,880 –> 01:46:40,239
confines of space so the ancient sages

2172
01:46:40,239 –> 01:46:42,010
had discerned and taught that all

2173
01:46:42,010 –> 01:46:44,190
consciousness is one immortal

2174
01:46:44,190 –> 01:46:47,469
indivisible infinite so finally

2175
01:46:47,469 –> 01:46:49,690
correlated and continuous but whatever

2176
01:46:49,690 –> 01:46:51,699
is perceived by any consciousness is

2177
01:46:51,699 –> 01:46:54,790
whether actually or potentially within

2178
01:46:54,790 –> 01:46:56,500
the reach of all consciousness and

2179
01:46:56,500 –> 01:46:58,239
therefore within the reach of any

2180
01:46:58,239 –> 01:47:00,969
consciousness this has been well

2181
01:47:00,969 –> 01:47:03,429
expressed by saying that all souls are

2182
01:47:03,429 –> 01:47:06,070
fundamentally one with the Oversoul that

2183
01:47:06,070 –> 01:47:08,760
the son of god and all sons of god are

2184
01:47:08,760 –> 01:47:12,550
fundamentally one with the father when

2185
01:47:12,550 –> 01:47:14,230
the consciousness is cleared of psychic

2186
01:47:14,230 –> 01:47:16,780
bonds and veils when the spiritual man

2187
01:47:16,780 –> 01:47:19,870
is able to stand to see then this superb

2188
01:47:19,870 –> 01:47:22,600
law comes into effect whatever is within

2189
01:47:22,600 –> 01:47:24,280
the knowledge of any consciousness and

2190
01:47:24,280 –> 01:47:26,650
this includes the whole infinite

2191
01:47:26,650 –> 01:47:29,710
universe is within his reach and may if

2192
01:47:29,710 –> 01:47:31,929
he wills be made a part of his

2193
01:47:31,929 –> 01:47:35,110
consciousness this he may attain through

2194
01:47:35,110 –> 01:47:36,870
his fundamental unity with the Oversoul

2195
01:47:36,870 –> 01:47:39,100
by raising himself towards the

2196
01:47:39,100 –> 01:47:41,110
consciousness above him and drawing on

2197
01:47:41,110 –> 01:47:44,500
its resources the son if he would work

the spiritual man and his exalted powers

2207
01:48:03,880 –> 01:48:06,190
must in no wise be detached from what

2208
01:48:06,190 –> 01:48:09,160
has gone before the being the very

2209
01:48:09,160 –> 01:48:11,500
inception of the spiritual man depends

2210
01:48:11,500 –> 01:48:13,540
on the purification and moral attainment

2211
01:48:13,540 –> 01:48:15,850
already detailed and can in no wise

2212
01:48:15,850 –> 01:48:19,810
dispense with or curtail them let no one

2213
01:48:19,810 –> 01:48:22,210
imagined that the true life the true

2214

powers of the spiritual man can be

2215
01:48:24,220 –> 01:48:26,560
attained by any way except the hard way

2216
01:48:26,560 –> 01:48:30,330
of sacrifice of trial of renunciation of

2217
01:48:30,330 –> 01:48:33,370
selfless self conquest and genuine

2218
01:48:33,370 –> 01:48:35,890
devotion to the wheel of all others only

2219
01:48:35,890 –> 01:48:38,320
thus can the golden Gate’s be reached

2220
01:48:38,320 –> 01:48:41,020
and entered only thus can we attain to

2221
01:48:41,020 –> 01:48:43,090
that pure world wherein the spiritual

2222
01:48:43,090 –> 01:48:46,350
man lives and moves and has his being

2223
01:48:46,350 –> 01:48:49,930
nothing impure nothing unholy can ever

2224
01:48:49,930 –> 01:48:51,100
cross that threshold

2225
01:48:51,100 –> 01:48:54,280
least of all impure motives or self

2226
01:48:54,280 –> 01:48:57,400
seeking desires these must be burnt away

2227
01:48:57,400 –> 01:48:59,590
before an entrance to that world can be

2228
01:48:59,590 –> 01:49:03,280
gained but where there is life there is

2229
01:49:03,280 –> 01:49:05,620
shadow and the lofty light of the soul

01:49:17,320 –> 01:49:20,550
a delusion the very essence of unreality

2236
01:49:20,550 –> 01:49:23,590
therefore ponder well the earlier rules

2237

discoveries by intending his mind on

2262
01:50:49,650 –> 01:50:52,170
them that is what is meant here

2263
01:50:52,170 –> 01:50:55,110
I read the page of a book while thinking

2264
01:50:55,110 –> 01:50:57,690
of something else at the end of the page

2265
01:50:57,690 –> 01:51:00,090
I have no idea of what it is about and

2266
01:51:00,090 –> 01:51:02,130
read it again still thinking of

2267
01:51:02,130 –> 01:51:05,730
something else with the same result then

2268
01:51:05,730 –> 01:51:07,110
I wake up so to speak

2269
01:51:07,110 –> 01:51:09,929
make an effort of attention fix my

2270
01:51:09,929 –> 01:51:12,030
thought on what I am reading and easily

2271
01:51:12,030 –> 01:51:15,239
take in as meaning the act of will the

2272
01:51:15,239 –> 01:51:17,400
effort of attention the intending of the

2273
01:51:17,400 –> 01:51:19,560
mind on each word and line of the page

2274
01:51:19,560 –> 01:51:21,900
just as the eyes are focused on each

2275
01:51:21,900 –> 01:51:23,699
word in line is the power your

2276
01:51:23,699 –> 01:51:26,760
contemplated it is the power to focus

2277
01:51:26,760 –> 01:51:28,530
the consciousness on a given spot and

2278
01:51:28,530 –> 01:51:32,219
hold it there attention is the first and

2279
01:51:32,219 –> 01:51:35,270
indispensable step in all knowledge

2280
01:51:35,270 –> 01:51:37,920
attention to spiritual thing is the

2281
01:51:37,920 –> 01:51:43,110
first step to spiritual knowledge Sutra

2282
01:51:43,110 –> 01:51:45,679
to a prolonged

2283
01:51:45,679 –> 01:51:47,300
holding of the perceiving consciousness

2284
01:51:47,300 –> 01:51:49,449
in that region is meditation

2285
01:51:49,449 –> 01:51:55,340
Dioner this will apply equally to outer

2286
01:51:55,340 –> 01:51:58,849
and inner things I may for a moment fix

2287
01:51:58,849 –> 01:52:01,280
my attention on some visible object in a

2288
01:52:01,280 –> 01:52:04,010
single penetrating glance or I may hold

2289
01:52:04,010 –> 01:52:06,679
the attention fixedly on it until it

2290
01:52:06,679 –> 01:52:08,329
reveals far more of its nature than a

2291
01:52:08,329 –> 01:52:11,059
single glance could perceive the first

2292
01:52:11,059 –> 01:52:12,439
is the focusing of the searchlight of

2293
01:52:12,439 –> 01:52:15,050
consciousness upon the object the other

2294
01:52:15,050 –> 01:52:16,459
is the holding of the white beam of

2295
01:52:16,459 –> 01:52:18,139
light steadily and persistently on the

2296
01:52:18,139 –> 01:52:20,570
object until it yields up the secret of

2297
01:52:20,570 –> 01:52:25,880
its details so for things within one may

2298
01:52:25,880 –> 01:52:27,949
fix the inner gaze for a moment on

2299
01:52:27,949 –> 01:52:30,499
spiritual things or one may hold the

2300
01:52:30,499 –> 01:52:33,019
consciousness steadily upon them until

2301
01:52:33,019 –> 01:52:34,909
what was in the dark slowly comes forth

2302
01:52:34,909 –> 01:52:36,979
into the light and yields up its

2303
01:52:36,979 –> 01:52:40,309
immortal secret but this is possible

2304
01:52:40,309 –> 01:52:42,800
only for the spiritual man after the

2305
01:52:42,800 –> 01:52:44,239
commandments and the rules have been

2306
01:52:44,239 –> 01:52:46,309
kept for until this is done

2307
01:52:46,309 –> 01:52:48,619
the thronging storms of psychical

2308
01:52:48,619 –> 01:52:50,840
thoughts dissipate and distract the

2309
01:52:50,840 –> 01:52:53,329
attention so it will not remain fixed on

2310
01:52:53,329 –> 01:52:55,999
spiritual things the cares of this world

2311
01:52:55,999 –> 01:52:58,880
the deceitfulness of riches choke the

2312
01:52:58,880 –> 01:53:05,170
word of the spiritual message Sutra 3

2313
01:53:05,170 –> 01:53:07,519
when the perceiving consciousness in

2314
01:53:07,519 –> 01:53:09,800
this meditative is wholly given to

2315
01:53:09,800 –> 01:53:11,449
illuminating the essential meaning of

2316
01:53:11,449 –> 01:53:13,639
the object contemplated and is freed

2317
01:53:13,639 –> 01:53:14,959
from the sense of separateness and

2318
01:53:14,959 –> 01:53:17,769
personality this is concentration

2319
01:53:17,769 –> 01:53:22,939
Samadhi let us review the steps so far

2320
01:53:22,939 –> 01:53:26,630
taken first the beam of perceiving

2321
01:53:26,630 –> 01:53:28,400
consciousness is focused on a certain

2322
01:53:28,400 –> 01:53:30,320
region or subject to the effort of

2323
01:53:30,320 –> 01:53:33,920
attention then this attending

2324
01:53:33,920 –> 01:53:36,670
consciousness is held on its object

2325
01:53:36,670 –> 01:53:39,709
third there is the ardent will to know

2326
01:53:39,709 –> 01:53:41,630
its meaning to illuminate with

2327
01:53:41,630 –> 01:53:44,889
comprehending thought fourth all

2328
01:53:44,889 –> 01:53:48,349
personal bias all desire merely to

2329
01:53:48,349 –> 01:53:50,539
endorse a previous opinion and so prove

2330
01:53:50,539 –> 01:53:52,880
oneself right and all desire for

2331
01:53:52,880 –> 01:53:55,610
personal profit or gratification must be

2332
01:53:55,610 –> 01:53:58,550
quite put away there must be a purely

2333
01:53:58,550 –> 01:53:59,530
disinterested

2334
01:53:59,530 –> 01:54:02,980
of truth for its own sake thus is the

2335
01:54:02,980 –> 01:54:04,810
perceiving consciousness made void as it

2336
01:54:04,810 –> 01:54:07,360
were of all personality or sense of

2337
01:54:07,360 –> 01:54:09,940
separateness the personal limitation

2338
01:54:09,940 –> 01:54:12,130
stands aside and let’s see all

2339
01:54:12,130 –> 01:54:13,630
consciousness come to bear upon the

2340
01:54:13,630 –> 01:54:17,080
problem the Oversoul bends its ray upon

2341
01:54:17,080 –> 01:54:20,260
the object and illumines it with pure

2342
01:54:20,260 –> 01:54:27,970
life Sutra for Wendy is three attention

2343
01:54:27,970 –> 01:54:31,120
meditation contemplation are exercised

2344
01:54:31,120 –> 01:54:33,940
at once this is perfectly concentrated

2345
01:54:33,940 –> 01:54:37,740
meditation saniana

2346
01:54:37,740 –> 01:54:39,940
when the personal limitation of the

2347
01:54:39,940 –> 01:54:41,440
perceiving consciousness stands aside

2348
01:54:41,440 –> 01:54:43,570
and allows the all consciousness to come

2349
01:54:43,570 –> 01:54:45,820
to bear upon the problem then arises

2350
01:54:45,820 –> 01:54:47,860
that real knowledge which is called a

2351
01:54:47,860 –> 01:54:50,590
flash of genius that real knowledge

2352
01:54:50,590 –> 01:54:52,390
which makes discoveries and without

2353
01:54:52,390 –> 01:54:54,550
which no discovery can be made however

2354
01:54:54,550 –> 01:54:57,640
painstaking the effort for genius is the

2355
01:54:57,640 –> 01:54:59,680
vision of the spiritual man and that

2356
01:54:59,680 –> 01:55:01,840
vision is a question of growth rather

2357
01:55:01,840 –> 01:55:04,300
than present effort though right effort

2358
01:55:04,300 –> 01:55:06,100
right Lee continues will in time

2359
01:55:06,100 –> 01:55:08,790
infallibly lead to growth and vision

2360
01:55:08,790 –> 01:55:10,960
through the power of us to set aside

2361
01:55:10,960 –> 01:55:13,570
personal limitation to push aside petty

2362
01:55:13,570 –> 01:55:16,090
concerns and cares and study the whole

2363
01:55:16,090 –> 01:55:18,370
nature and will in an ardent love of

2364
01:55:18,370 –> 01:55:21,130
truth and desire to know it through the

2365
01:55:21,130 –> 01:55:22,720
power of us to make way for the all

2366
01:55:22,720 –> 01:55:25,420
consciousness all great men make their

his eyes recognized the universal force

process of evolution the Oversoul once

2381
01:56:07,540 –> 01:56:11,420
more recognizing its own frown

2382
01:56:11,420 –> 01:56:13,910
ever noting the dark lines in the band

2383
01:56:13,910 –> 01:56:16,280
of sunlight in his spectroscope divined

2384
01:56:16,280 –> 01:56:18,050
their identity with the bright lines in

2385
01:56:18,050 –> 01:56:20,390
the spectra of incandescent iron sodium

2386
01:56:20,390 –> 01:56:23,449
and the rest and so saw the oneness of

2387
01:56:23,449 –> 01:56:27,080
substance in the worlds and funds the

2388
01:56:27,080 –> 01:56:29,440
unity of the materials of the universe

2389
01:56:29,440 –> 01:56:32,210
once again the Oversoul looking with his

2390
01:56:32,210 –> 01:56:36,650
eyes recognized its own so it is with

2391
01:56:36,650 –> 01:56:39,560
all true knowledge but the mind must

2392
01:56:39,560 –> 01:56:41,030
transcend its limitations

2393
01:56:41,030 –> 01:56:44,449
if idiosyncrasies there must be purity

2394
01:56:44,449 –> 01:56:46,790
for to the pure in heart is the promise

2395
01:56:46,790 –> 01:56:49,840
that they shall see God

2396
01:56:51,100 –> 01:56:55,310
Sutra 5 by mastering this perfectly

2397
01:56:55,310 –> 01:56:57,860
concentrated meditation there comes the

2398
01:56:57,860 –> 01:57:02,780
illumination of perception the meaning

2399
01:57:02,780 –> 01:57:04,429
of this is illustrated by what has been

2400
01:57:04,429 –> 01:57:07,429
said before when the spiritual man is

2401
01:57:07,429 –> 01:57:09,080
able to throw aside the trammels of

2402
01:57:09,080 –> 01:57:11,719
emotional and mental limitation and to

2403
01:57:11,719 –> 01:57:15,110
open his eyes he sees clearly he attains

2404
01:57:15,110 –> 01:57:18,590
to illuminated perception a point once

2405
01:57:18,590 –> 01:57:20,719
said that occultism is the conscious

2406
01:57:20,719 –> 01:57:23,600
cultivation of genius and it is certain

2407
01:57:23,600 –> 01:57:25,880
that the awakened spiritual man attains

2408
01:57:25,880 –> 01:57:29,179
to the perceptions of genius genius is a

2409
01:57:29,179 –> 01:57:31,340
vision the power of the spiritual man

2410
01:57:31,340 –> 01:57:34,130
whether its possessor recognizes this or

2411
01:57:34,130 –> 01:57:37,219
not all two knowledge is of a spiritual

2412
01:57:37,219 –> 01:57:39,890
man the greatest in all ages have

2413
01:57:39,890 –> 01:57:42,020
recognized this and put their testimony

2414
01:57:42,020 –> 01:57:45,380
on record the great in wisdom who have

2415
01:57:45,380 –> 01:57:47,719
not consciously recognized it have ever

2416
01:57:47,719 –> 01:57:49,630
been full of a spirit of reverence of

2417
01:57:49,630 –> 01:57:52,610
selfless devotion to truth of humility

2418
01:57:52,610 –> 01:57:55,910
as well as Darwin and reverence and

2419
01:57:55,910 –> 01:57:57,860
humility are the unconscious recognition

2420
01:57:57,860 –> 01:58:00,380
of the nearness of the Spirit that

2421
01:58:00,380 –> 01:58:03,380
divinity which broods over us a master

2422
01:58:03,380 –> 01:58:08,390
or a slave Sutra

2423
01:58:08,390 –> 01:58:11,930
six this power is distributed in

2424
01:58:11,930 –> 01:58:16,780
ascending degrees it is to be attained

2425
01:58:16,780 –> 01:58:20,360
step-by-step it is a question not of

2426
01:58:20,360 –> 01:58:23,830
miracle but of evolution of growth

2427
01:58:23,830 –> 01:58:26,270
Newton had to master the multiplication

2428
01:58:26,270 –> 01:58:28,450
table then the four rules of arithmetic

2429
01:58:28,450 –> 01:58:31,550
then the rudiments of algebra before he

2430
01:58:31,550 –> 01:58:34,460
came to the binomial theorem at each

2431
01:58:34,460 –> 01:58:36,770
point there was a tension concentration

2432
01:58:36,770 –> 01:58:41,210
in sight until these were attained no

2433
01:58:41,210 –> 01:58:42,890
progress to the next point was possible

2434
01:58:42,890 –> 01:58:46,970
so with Darwin he had to learn the form

2435
01:58:46,970 –> 01:58:49,700
and use of leaf and flower of bone and

2436
01:58:49,700 –> 01:58:52,490
muscle the characteristics of general

2437
01:58:52,490 –> 01:58:54,980
and species the distribution of plants

2438
01:58:54,980 –> 01:58:57,080
and animals before he had in mind that

2439
01:58:57,080 –> 01:58:59,000
Nexus of knowledge on which the light of

2440
01:58:59,000 –> 01:59:02,140
his great idea was at last able to shine

2441
01:59:02,140 –> 01:59:05,930
so is it with all knowledge so is it

2442
01:59:05,930 –> 01:59:09,020
with spiritual knowledge take the matter

2443
01:59:09,020 –> 01:59:11,390
this way the first subject for the

2444
01:59:11,390 –> 01:59:13,940
exercise of my spiritual insight is my

2445
01:59:13,940 –> 01:59:16,820
day with its circumstances attendances

2446
01:59:16,820 –> 01:59:20,240
his opportunities its duties I do what I

2447
01:59:20,240 –> 01:59:23,240
can to solve it to fulfill its duties to

2448
01:59:23,240 –> 01:59:25,850
learn its lesson I try to live my day

2449
01:59:25,850 –> 01:59:29,270
with aspiration and faith that is the

2450
01:59:29,270 –> 01:59:30,040
first step

2451
01:59:30,040 –> 01:59:33,410
by doing this I gather a harvest for the

2452
01:59:33,410 –> 01:59:35,900
evening I gain a deeper insight into

2453
01:59:35,900 –> 01:59:38,390
life in virtue of which I begin the next

2454
01:59:38,390 –> 01:59:41,390
day with a certain advantage a certain

2455
01:59:41,390 –> 01:59:43,780
spiritual event entertainment

2456
01:59:43,780 –> 01:59:47,990
so with all successive days in faith and

2457
01:59:47,990 –> 01:59:50,650
aspiration we passed from day to day in

2458
01:59:50,650 –> 01:59:53,570
growing knowledge and power with never

2459
01:59:53,570 –> 01:59:55,450
more than one day to solve it at I’ll

2460
01:59:55,450 –> 01:59:58,120
until all life becomes radiant and

2461
01:59:58,120 –> 02:00:05,610
transparent Sutra 7

2462
02:00:05,610 –> 02:00:09,080
this 3/4 power of attention meditation

2463
02:00:09,080 –> 02:00:12,090
compensation is more interior than the

2464
02:00:12,090 –> 02:00:15,469
means of growth previously described

2465
02:00:15,469 –> 02:00:18,330
very naturally so because the means of

2466
02:00:18,330 –> 02:00:19,710
growth previously described were

2467
02:00:19,710 –> 02:00:21,179
concerned with the extrication of the

2468
02:00:21,179 –> 02:00:23,369
spiritual man from the psychic bondages

2469
02:00:23,369 –> 02:00:25,650
and veil while this threefold power is

2470
02:00:25,650 –> 02:00:27,449
to be exercised by the spiritual man

2471
02:00:27,449 –> 02:00:29,760
thus extricated and standing on his seat

2472
02:00:29,760 –> 02:00:36,300
viewing life with open eyes Sutra 8 but

2473
02:00:36,300 –> 02:00:38,130
this triad is still exterior to the soul

2474
02:00:38,130 –> 02:00:40,469
vision which is unconditioned free from

2475
02:00:40,469 –> 02:00:44,219
the seed of mental analysis the reason

2476
02:00:44,219 –> 02:00:46,830
is this the threefold power we have been

2477
02:00:46,830 –> 02:00:48,780
considering the triad of attention

2478
02:00:48,780 –> 02:00:52,080
concentration meditation is so far as we

2479
02:00:52,080 –> 02:00:54,090
have yet considered it the focusing of

2480
02:00:54,090 –> 02:00:55,560
the beam of perceiving consciousness

2481
02:00:55,560 –> 02:00:58,139
upon some form of manifesting being with

2482
02:00:58,139 –> 02:00:59,750
the view of understanding it completely

2483
02:00:59,750 –> 02:01:02,130
there is a higher stage where the beam

2484
02:01:02,130 –> 02:01:03,659
of consciousness is turned back upon

2485
02:01:03,659 –> 02:01:05,699
itself and the individual consciousness

2486
02:01:05,699 –> 02:01:07,619
enters into and knows the all

2487
02:01:07,619 –> 02:01:11,190
consciousness this is a being a being in

2488
02:01:11,190 –> 02:01:14,070
immortality rather than a knowing it is

2489
02:01:14,070 –> 02:01:16,139
free from mental analysis or mental

2490
02:01:16,139 –> 02:01:18,750
forms it is not an activity of the

2491
02:01:18,750 –> 02:01:20,909
higher mind even the mind of the

2492
02:01:20,909 –> 02:01:23,850
spiritual man it is an activity of the

2493
02:01:23,850 –> 02:01:26,550
soul had Newton risen to this higher

2494
02:01:26,550 –> 02:01:29,040
stage he would have known not the laws

2495
02:01:29,040 –> 02:01:31,650
of motion but that high being from whose

2496
02:01:31,650 –> 02:01:34,619
life comes eternal motions had Darwin

2497
02:01:34,619 –> 02:01:36,179
risen to this he would have seen the

2498
02:01:36,179 –> 02:01:38,369
soul who’s graduated thought and being

2499
02:01:38,369 –> 02:01:41,070
all evolution expresses there are

2500
02:01:41,070 –> 02:01:43,619
therefore these two perceptions that of

2501
02:01:43,619 –> 02:01:46,800
living things and that of the life head

2502
02:01:46,800 –> 02:01:49,139
of the souls works and that of the soul

2503
02:01:49,139 –> 02:01:51,530
itself

2504
02:01:52,900 –> 02:01:56,630
suits are not one of the defending

2505
02:01:56,630 –> 02:01:58,900
degrees is the development of control

2506
02:01:58,900 –> 02:02:01,130
first there is the overcoming of the

2507
02:02:01,130 –> 02:02:01,430
mind

2508
02:02:01,430 –> 02:02:04,100
impressive excitation then comes the

2509
02:02:04,100 –> 02:02:05,600
manifestation of the mind impressive

2510
02:02:05,600 –> 02:02:07,880
control then the perceiving

2511
02:02:07,880 –> 02:02:09,680
consciousness follows after the moment

2512
02:02:09,680 –> 02:02:14,660
of control this is the development of

2513
02:02:14,660 –> 02:02:18,610
control the meaning seems to be this

2514
02:02:18,610 –> 02:02:20,900
some object enters the field of

2515
02:02:20,900 –> 02:02:23,570
observation and at first silently

2516
02:02:23,570 –> 02:02:26,270
excites the mind stirring up curiosity

2517
02:02:26,270 –> 02:02:30,020
fear wonder then the consciousness

2518
02:02:30,020 –> 02:02:32,630
returns upon itself as it were and takes

2519
02:02:32,630 –> 02:02:35,300
the perception firmly in hand studying

2520
02:02:35,300 –> 02:02:36,920
itself and viewing the matter calmly

2521
02:02:36,920 –> 02:02:40,040
from above the studying effort of the

2522
02:02:40,040 –> 02:02:41,719
will upon the perceiving consciousness

2523
02:02:41,719 –> 02:02:44,510
is control and immediately upon it

2524
02:02:44,510 –> 02:02:49,510
follows perception understanding insight

2525
02:02:49,510 –> 02:02:53,390
take a tried example supposing one is

2526
02:02:53,390 –> 02:02:56,750
walking in an Indian forest a charging

2527
02:02:56,750 –> 02:02:59,780
elephant suddenly appears the man is

2528
02:02:59,780 –> 02:03:01,489
excited by astonishment and perhaps

2529
02:03:01,489 –> 02:03:04,790
terror but he exercises an effort of

2530
02:03:04,790 –> 02:03:07,460
will perceives the situation in its true

2531
02:03:07,460 –> 02:03:10,190
bearings and recognizes that a certain

2532
02:03:10,190 –> 02:03:13,430
thing must be done in this case probably

2533
02:03:13,430 –> 02:03:15,140
that he must get out of the way as

2534
02:03:15,140 –> 02:03:19,130
quickly as possible or a comet

2535
02:03:19,130 –> 02:03:21,830
unheralded appears in the sky like a

2536
02:03:21,830 –> 02:03:25,400
flaming sword the beholder is at first

2537
02:03:25,400 –> 02:03:28,550
astonished perhaps terror-stricken but

2538
02:03:28,550 –> 02:03:31,550
he takes himself in hand controls his

2539
02:03:31,550 –> 02:03:34,030
thoughts views the apparition calmly and

2540
02:03:34,030 –> 02:03:37,489
finally calculates its orbit and its

2541
02:03:37,489 –> 02:03:41,300
relation to meteor showers these are

2542
02:03:41,300 –> 02:03:43,250
extreme illustrations but with all

2543
02:03:43,250 –> 02:03:45,020
knowledge the order of perception is the

2544
02:03:45,020 –> 02:03:48,770
same first the excitation of the mind by

2545
02:03:48,770 –> 02:03:51,500
the new object impressed of it then the

2546
02:03:51,500 –> 02:03:53,690
control of the mind from within upon

2547
02:03:53,690 –> 02:03:55,130
which follows the perception of the

2548
02:03:55,130 –> 02:03:57,920
nature of the object where the eyes of

2549
02:03:57,920 –> 02:03:59,960
the spiritual manner open this will be a

2550
02:03:59,960 –> 02:04:01,700
true and penetrating spiritual

2551
02:04:01,700 –> 02:04:04,880
perception in some such way to our

2552
02:04:04,880 –> 02:04:06,440
living experiences come to us

2553
02:04:06,440 –> 02:04:09,920
first with a shock of pain then the soul

2554
02:04:09,920 –> 02:04:12,010
studies itself and controls the pain

2555
02:04:12,010 –> 02:04:14,540
then the spirit perceives the lesson of

2556
02:04:14,540 –> 02:04:16,880
the event and its bearing upon the

2557
02:04:16,880 –> 02:04:23,050
progressive revelation of life Sutra 10

2558
02:04:23,050 –> 02:04:25,430
through frequent repetition of this

2559
02:04:25,430 –> 02:04:28,160
process the mind becomes situated to it

2560
02:04:28,160 –> 02:04:30,680
and there arises an equable flow of

2561
02:04:30,680 –> 02:04:34,820
perceiving consciousness control the

2562
02:04:34,820 –> 02:04:37,219
minds by the soul like control of the

2563
02:04:37,219 –> 02:04:39,830
muscles by the mind comes by practice

2564
02:04:39,830 –> 02:04:44,540
and constant voluntary repetition as an

2565
02:04:44,540 –> 02:04:46,370
example of control of the muscles by the

2566
02:04:46,370 –> 02:04:49,310
mind take the ceaseless practice by

2567
02:04:49,310 –> 02:04:51,290
which a musician gains mastery over his

2568
02:04:51,290 –> 02:04:53,690
instrument or a fencer gain skill with a

2569
02:04:53,690 –> 02:04:56,690
rapier innumerable small efforts of

2570
02:04:56,690 –> 02:04:58,910
attention will make a result which seems

2571
02:04:58,910 –> 02:05:01,760
well nigh miraculous which for the

2572
02:05:01,760 –> 02:05:05,120
novice is really miraculous then

2573
02:05:05,120 –> 02:05:06,710
consider that far more wonderful

2574
02:05:06,710 –> 02:05:09,980
instrument the perceiving mind played on

2575
02:05:09,980 –> 02:05:14,199
by that fine musician before here again

2576
02:05:14,199 –> 02:05:16,520
innumerable small efforts of attention

2577
02:05:16,520 –> 02:05:19,280
will accumulate into mastery and a

2578
02:05:19,280 –> 02:05:22,310
mastery worth winning for a concrete

2579
02:05:22,310 –> 02:05:24,650
example take the gradual conquest of

2580
02:05:24,650 –> 02:05:27,080
each day the effort to live that day for

2581
02:05:27,080 –> 02:05:29,719
the soul to him that his faithful unto

2582
02:05:29,719 –> 02:05:34,180
death the master gives the crown of life

2583
02:05:36,040 –> 02:05:40,640
Sutra 11 the gradual conquest of the

2584
02:05:40,640 –> 02:05:43,190
mind tendency to flit from one object to

2585
02:05:43,190 –> 02:05:45,650
another and the power of one pointedness

2586
02:05:45,650 –> 02:05:50,290
make the development of contemplation as

2587
02:05:50,290 –> 02:05:53,030
an illustration of the minds tendency to

2588
02:05:53,030 –> 02:05:55,520
flit from one object to another take a

2589
02:05:55,520 –> 02:05:58,730
small boy learning arithmetic he begins

2590
02:05:58,730 –> 02:06:03,820
to ones are two three ones are three and

2591
02:06:03,820 –> 02:06:06,650
then he thinks of the three coins in his

2592
02:06:06,650 –> 02:06:09,230
pocket which will purchase so much candy

2593
02:06:09,230 –> 02:06:11,120
in the store down the street next to the

2594
02:06:11,120 –> 02:06:14,540
toy shop where are baseball’s marble and

2595
02:06:14,540 –> 02:06:17,719
so on and then he comes back with a jerk

2596
02:06:17,719 –> 02:06:20,770
two four ones are for

2597
02:06:20,770 –> 02:06:24,140
so with us also we are seeking the

2598
02:06:24,140 –> 02:06:26,390
meaning of our task but the mind takes

2599
02:06:26,390 –> 02:06:28,250
advantage of a moment of slackened

2600
02:06:28,250 –> 02:06:30,260
attention and flips off from one

2601
02:06:30,260 –> 02:06:32,510
frivolous detail to another so we

2602
02:06:32,510 –> 02:06:33,830
suddenly come back to consciousness

2603
02:06:33,830 –> 02:06:37,820
after traversing leagues of space we

2604
02:06:37,820 –> 02:06:39,620
must learn to conquer this and to go

2605
02:06:39,620 –> 02:06:42,020
back within ourselves into the beam of

2606
02:06:42,020 –> 02:06:44,360
perceiving consciousness itself which is

2607
02:06:44,360 –> 02:06:47,450
a beam of the Oversoul this is the true

2608
02:06:47,450 –> 02:06:49,820
one pointedness the bringing of our

2609
02:06:49,820 –> 02:06:53,440
consciousness to a focus in the soul

2610
02:06:55,630 –> 02:06:59,720
Citra thirteen through this the inherent

2611
02:06:59,720 –> 02:07:01,520
character distinctive marks and

2612
02:07:01,520 –> 02:07:04,310
conditions of being and powers according

2613
02:07:04,310 –> 02:07:09,110
to their development are made clear by

2614
02:07:09,110 –> 02:07:10,970
the power defined in the preceding sutra

2615
02:07:10,970 –> 02:07:13,100
the inherent characters distinctive

2616
02:07:13,100 –> 02:07:14,900
marks and conditions of beings and

2617
02:07:14,900 –> 02:07:17,450
powers are made clear for through this

2618
02:07:17,450 –> 02:07:20,480
power as defined we get a two-fold view

2619
02:07:20,480 –> 02:07:23,150
of each object seeing it once all its

2620
02:07:23,150 –> 02:07:24,920
individual characteristics and its

2621
02:07:24,920 –> 02:07:28,100
essential character species and genus we

2622
02:07:28,100 –> 02:07:30,350
see it in relation to itself and in

2623
02:07:30,350 –> 02:07:33,320
relation to the eternal thus we see

2624
02:07:33,320 –> 02:07:36,470
arose as that particular flower with its

2625
02:07:36,470 –> 02:07:39,050
color and scent its peculiar fold of

2626
02:07:39,050 –> 02:07:41,930
each petal but we also see in it the

2627
02:07:41,930 –> 02:07:44,390
species the family to which it belongs

2628
02:07:44,390 –> 02:07:47,510
with its relation to all plants to all

2629
02:07:47,510 –> 02:07:52,040
life to life itself so in any day we see

2630
02:07:52,040 –> 02:07:54,920
events and circumstances we also see in

2631
02:07:54,920 –> 02:07:57,110
at the lessons set for the soul by the

2632
02:07:57,110 –> 02:08:04,370
eternal Sutra 14 every object has its

2633
02:08:04,370 –> 02:08:06,290
characteristics which are already

2634
02:08:06,290 –> 02:08:08,920
quiescent those which are active and

2635
02:08:08,920 –> 02:08:13,610
those which are not yet definable every

2636
02:08:13,610 –> 02:08:15,500
object has characteristics belonging to

2637
02:08:15,500 –> 02:08:19,100
its past its present and its future in a

2638
02:08:19,100 –> 02:08:21,140
fir tree for example there are the

2639
02:08:21,140 –> 02:08:23,720
stumps or scars of dead branches which

2640
02:08:23,720 –> 02:08:25,810
once represented its foremost growth

2641
02:08:25,810 –> 02:08:27,740
there are the branches with their

2642
02:08:27,740 –> 02:08:30,200
needles spread out to the air there are

2643
02:08:30,200 –> 02:08:32,180
the buds at the end of each branch and

2644
02:08:32,180 –> 02:08:33,800
twig which carry the soul

2645
02:08:33,800 –> 02:08:35,540
closely packed needles which are the

2646
02:08:35,540 –> 02:08:38,720
promise of the future in like manner the

2647
02:08:38,720 –> 02:08:41,300
chrysalis has as its past the

2648
02:08:41,300 –> 02:08:44,710
caterpillar as his future the butterfly

2649
02:08:44,710 –> 02:08:47,810
the man has in his past the animal in

2650
02:08:47,810 –> 02:08:52,100
his future the angel both are visible

2651
02:08:52,100 –> 02:08:55,540
even now in his face so with all things

2652
02:08:55,540 –> 02:08:59,980
for all things change and grow

2653
02:09:00,430 –> 02:09:04,610
which was 15 difference in stage is the

2654
02:09:04,610 –> 02:09:08,330
cause of difference in development this

2655
02:09:08,330 –> 02:09:10,420
but amplifies what has just been said

2656
02:09:10,420 –> 02:09:13,460
the first stage is the sapling the

2657
02:09:13,460 –> 02:09:16,640
caterpillar the animal the second stage

2658
02:09:16,640 –> 02:09:19,310
is the growing tree the chrysalis the

2659
02:09:19,310 –> 02:09:23,450
man the third is the splendid pine the

2660
02:09:23,450 –> 02:09:27,050
butterfly the angel difference of stage

2661
02:09:27,050 –> 02:09:28,550
is the cause of difference of

2662
02:09:28,550 –> 02:09:32,000
development so it is among men and among

2663
02:09:32,000 –> 02:09:37,250
the races of men Sutra 16 through

2664
02:09:37,250 –> 02:09:39,440
perfectly concentrated meditation on the

2665
02:09:39,440 –> 02:09:41,420
three stages of development comes a

2666
02:09:41,420 –> 02:09:46,040
knowledge of past and future we have

2667
02:09:46,040 –> 02:09:47,780
taken our illustrations from natural

2668
02:09:47,780 –> 02:09:49,910
science because since every true

2669
02:09:49,910 –> 02:09:51,650
discovery in Natural Science is a

2670
02:09:51,650 –> 02:09:53,900
divination of a law in nature attained

2671
02:09:53,900 –> 02:09:55,790
through a flash of genius such

2672
02:09:55,790 –> 02:09:57,830
discoveries really represent acts of

2673
02:09:57,830 –> 02:10:00,350
spiritual perception acts of perception

2674
02:10:00,350 –> 02:10:02,690
by the spiritual man even though they

2675
02:10:02,690 –> 02:10:06,050
are generally not so recognised so we

2676
02:10:06,050 –> 02:10:08,440
may once more use the same illustration

2677
02:10:08,440 –> 02:10:10,780
perfectly concentrative meditation

2678
02:10:10,780 –> 02:10:12,980
perfect insight into the chrysalis

2679
02:10:12,980 –> 02:10:15,520
reveals the caterpillar that it has been

2680
02:10:15,520 –> 02:10:20,000
the butterfly that is destined to be he

2681
02:10:20,000 –> 02:10:22,880
who knows the seed knows the seed pod or

2682
02:10:22,880 –> 02:10:25,310
ear has come from and the plant that is

2683
02:10:25,310 –> 02:10:29,000
to come from it so in like manner he who

2684
02:10:29,000 –> 02:10:31,610
really knows today and the heart of

2685
02:10:31,610 –> 02:10:35,480
today knows its parent yesterday and its

2686
02:10:35,480 –> 02:10:39,140
child tomorrow past present and future

2687
02:10:39,140 –> 02:10:43,130
are all in the eternal he who dwells in

2688
02:10:43,130 –> 02:10:50,510
the eternal knows all three Sutra 17 the

2689
02:10:50,510 –> 02:10:52,880
sound and the object and the thought

2690
02:10:52,880 –> 02:10:55,190
called up fire word are confounded

2691
02:10:55,190 –> 02:10:57,230
because they’re all blurred together in

2692
02:10:57,230 –> 02:11:00,290
the mind by perfectly concentrated

2693
02:11:00,290 –> 02:11:02,300
meditation on the distinction between

2694
02:11:02,300 –> 02:11:04,580
them there comes an understanding of the

2695
02:11:04,580 –> 02:11:09,980
sounds uttered by all beings it must be

2696
02:11:09,980 –> 02:11:11,330
remembered that we are speaking of

2697
02:11:11,330 –> 02:11:13,930
perception by the spiritual man

2698
02:11:13,930 –> 02:11:17,300
sound like every force is the expression

2699
02:11:17,300 –> 02:11:20,330
of a power of the eternal infinite

2700
02:11:20,330 –> 02:11:22,310
shades of this power are expressed in

2701
02:11:22,310 –> 02:11:26,060
the infinitely varied tones of sound he

2702
02:11:26,060 –> 02:11:28,130
who having entry to the consciousness of

2703
02:11:28,130 –> 02:11:30,140
the eternal knows the essence of his

2704
02:11:30,140 –> 02:11:32,690
power can divine the meanings of all

2705
02:11:32,690 –> 02:11:36,140
sounds from the voice of the insect to

2706
02:11:36,140 –> 02:11:39,590
the music of the spheres in like manner

2707
02:11:39,590 –> 02:11:42,380
he who has attained to spiritual vision

2708
02:11:42,380 –> 02:11:44,420
can perceive the mind images in the

2709
02:11:44,420 –> 02:11:47,270
thoughts of others with the shade of

2710
02:11:47,270 –> 02:11:48,500
feeling which goes with them

2711
02:11:48,500 –> 02:11:51,230
thus reading their thoughts as easily as

2712
02:11:51,230 –> 02:11:54,320
he hears their words everyone has the

2713
02:11:54,320 –> 02:11:56,960
germ of this power since difference of

2714
02:11:56,960 –> 02:11:59,120
tone will give widely differing meanings

2715
02:11:59,120 –> 02:12:01,490
to the same words meanings which are

2716
02:12:01,490 –> 02:12:07,700
intuitively perceived by everyone Sutra

2717
02:12:07,700 –> 02:12:11,030
18 when the mind impressions become

2718
02:12:11,030 –> 02:12:13,310
visible there comes an understanding of

2719
02:12:13,310 –> 02:12:17,840
previous first this is simple enough if

2720
02:12:17,840 –> 02:12:21,020
we grasp the truth of rebirth the fine

2721
02:12:21,020 –> 02:12:23,360
harvest of past experiences is drawn

2722
02:12:23,360 –> 02:12:26,060
into the spiritual nature forming indeed

2723
02:12:26,060 –> 02:12:29,240
the basis of its development when the

2724
02:12:29,240 –> 02:12:31,070
consciousness has been raised to a point

2725
02:12:31,070 –> 02:12:32,900
above these fine subjective impressions

2726
02:12:32,900 –> 02:12:35,260
and can look down upon them from above

2727
02:12:35,260 –> 02:12:38,000
this one is self be a remembering of

2728
02:12:38,000 –> 02:12:45,260
prosperous suture 19 by perfectly

2729
02:12:45,260 –> 02:12:47,720
concentrated meditation on mind images

2730
02:12:47,720 –> 02:12:50,270
is gained the understanding of the

2731
02:12:50,270 –> 02:12:54,830
thoughts of others here for those who

2732
02:12:54,830 –> 02:12:57,140
can profit by it is the secret of fat

2733
02:12:57,140 –> 02:12:59,840
reading take the simplest case of

2734
02:12:59,840 –> 02:13:03,050
intentional thought transference it is a

2735
02:13:03,050 –> 02:13:04,820
testimony of those who have done this

2736
02:13:04,820 –> 02:13:07,220
that the perceiving mind must be stilled

2737
02:13:07,220 –> 02:13:09,530
before the mind image projected by the

2738
02:13:09,530 –> 02:13:12,650
other mind can be seen with it comes a

2739
02:13:12,650 –> 02:13:15,080
sense of the feeling and temper of the

2740
02:13:15,080 –> 02:13:19,810
other mind and so on in higher degrees

2741
02:13:19,900 –> 02:13:24,320
suture 20 but since that on which the

2742
02:13:24,320 –> 02:13:25,850
thought in the mind of another

2743
02:13:25,850 –> 02:13:28,370
is not objective to the thought readers

2744
02:13:28,370 –> 02:13:30,560
consciousness he perceives the thought

2745
02:13:30,560 –> 02:13:33,320
only and not also that on which the

2746
02:13:33,320 –> 02:13:37,640
thought rest the meaning appears to be

2747
02:13:37,640 –> 02:13:40,370
simple one may be able to perceive the

2748
02:13:40,370 –> 02:13:42,290
thoughts of someone at a distance

2749
02:13:42,290 –> 02:13:45,860
one cannot by that means alone also

2750
02:13:45,860 –> 02:13:47,420
perceive the external surroundings of

2751
02:13:47,420 –> 02:13:51,430
that person which arouses these thoughts

2752
02:13:52,030 –> 02:13:56,780
Sutra 21 by perfectly concentrated

2753
02:13:56,780 –> 02:13:59,870
meditation on the form of the body by

2754
02:13:59,870 –> 02:14:01,850
arresting the bodies perceptibility and

2755
02:14:01,850 –> 02:14:04,520
by inhibiting the eyes power of sight

2756
02:14:04,520 –> 02:14:06,560
there comes the power to make the body

2757
02:14:06,560 –> 02:14:11,000
invisible there are many instances of

2758
02:14:11,000 –> 02:14:14,200
the exercise of this power by mesmerist

2759
02:14:14,200 –> 02:14:17,090
hypnotists and feel like and we may

2760
02:14:17,090 –> 02:14:18,800
simply call it an instance of the power

2761
02:14:18,800 –> 02:14:20,290
of suggestion

2762
02:14:20,290 –> 02:14:23,210
Shankara tells us that by this power the

2763
02:14:23,210 –> 02:14:24,950
popular magicians of the East perform

2764
02:14:24,950 –> 02:14:27,140
their wonders working on the mind images

2765
02:14:27,140 –> 02:14:28,970
of others while remaining invisible

2766
02:14:28,970 –> 02:14:31,880
themselves it is all a question of being

2767
02:14:31,880 –> 02:14:36,280
able to see and control the mind images

2768
02:14:37,720 –> 02:14:42,140
Sutra 22 the works which fill out the

2769
02:14:42,140 –> 02:14:44,210
lifespan may be either immediately or

2770
02:14:44,210 –> 02:14:46,940
gradually operative by perfectly

2771
02:14:46,940 –> 02:14:49,460
concentrated meditation on these comes a

2772
02:14:49,460 –> 02:14:52,250
knowledge of the time of the end as also

2773
02:14:52,250 –> 02:14:56,750
through science our garments which is

2774
02:14:56,750 –> 02:14:59,570
wet says the commentator may be hung up

2775
02:14:59,570 –> 02:15:02,840
to dry and so dry rapidly or it may be

2776
02:15:02,840 –> 02:15:06,140
rolled in a ball and dry slowly so a

2777
02:15:06,140 –> 02:15:10,400
fire may blaze or smolder thus it is

2778
02:15:10,400 –> 02:15:12,470
with karma the works that fill out the

2779
02:15:12,470 –> 02:15:15,470
lifespan by an insight into the mental

2780
02:15:15,470 –> 02:15:17,420
forms and forces which make up karma

2781
02:15:17,420 –> 02:15:19,520
there comes a knowledge of the rapidity

2782
02:15:19,520 –> 02:15:22,670
or slowness of their development and of

2783
02:15:22,670 –> 02:15:25,780
the time when the debt will be paid

2784
02:15:26,890 –> 02:15:31,940
Sutra 23 by perfectly concentrated

2785
02:15:31,940 –> 02:15:34,760
meditation on sympathy compassion and

2786
02:15:34,760 –> 02:15:37,340
kindness has gained the power of

2787
02:15:37,340 –> 02:15:40,660
interior union with others

2788
02:15:41,140 –> 02:15:45,290
unity is the reality separateness the

2789
02:15:45,290 –> 02:15:48,080
illusion the nearer we come to reality

2790
02:15:48,080 –> 02:15:51,910
the nearer we come to unity of heart

2791
02:15:51,910 –> 02:15:56,120
sympathy compassion kindness our modes

2792
02:15:56,120 –> 02:15:58,520
of the unity of heart whereby we rejoice

2793
02:15:58,520 –> 02:16:00,650
with those who rejoice and weep with

2794
02:16:00,650 –> 02:16:03,770
those who weep these things are learned

2795
02:16:03,770 –> 02:16:12,020
by desiring to learn them suture 24 by

2796
02:16:12,020 –> 02:16:13,969
perfectly concentrated meditation on

2797
02:16:13,969 –> 02:16:16,880
power even such power as that of the

2798
02:16:16,880 –> 02:16:21,620
elephant may be gained this is a pretty

2799
02:16:21,620 –> 02:16:24,530
image elephants possess not only force

2800
02:16:24,530 –> 02:16:28,120
but poise and fineness of control

2801
02:16:28,120 –> 02:16:32,299
they can lift a straw a child a tree

2802
02:16:32,299 –> 02:16:34,718
with perfectly judged control and effort

2803
02:16:34,718 –> 02:16:37,760
so the simile is a good one by

2804
02:16:37,760 –> 02:16:39,950
detachment by withdrawing into the

2805
02:16:39,950 –> 02:16:42,290
soul’s reservoir of power we can gain

2806
02:16:42,290 –> 02:16:44,830
all these force and finesse and poise

2807
02:16:44,830 –> 02:16:47,599
the ability to handle with equal mastery

2808
02:16:47,599 –> 02:16:50,209
things small and great concrete and

2809
02:16:50,209 –> 02:16:58,218
abstract like suture 25 by bending upon

2810
02:16:58,218 –> 02:17:00,349
them the awakened inner light there

2811
02:17:00,349 –> 02:17:02,599
comes a knowledge of things subtle or

2812
02:17:02,599 –> 02:17:08,388
concealed or obscure as we said at the

2813
02:17:08,388 –> 02:17:11,209
outset each consciousness is related to

2814
02:17:11,209 –> 02:17:15,110
all consciousness and through it has a

2815
02:17:15,110 –> 02:17:16,670
potential consciousness of all things

2816
02:17:16,670 –> 02:17:19,549
whether subtle or concealed or obscure

2817
02:17:19,549 –> 02:17:22,490
an understanding of this great truth

2818
02:17:22,490 –> 02:17:25,429
will come with practice as one of the

2819
02:17:25,429 –> 02:17:28,429
wise has said we have no conception of

2820
02:17:28,429 –> 02:17:36,080
the power of meditation Sutra 26 by

2821
02:17:36,080 –> 02:17:38,120
perfectly concentrated meditation on the

2822
02:17:38,120 –> 02:17:42,340
Sun comes in knowledge of the worlds

2823
02:17:43,200 –> 02:17:46,740
several meanings first by a knowledge of

2824
02:17:46,740 –> 02:17:48,750
the constitution of the Sun astronomers

2825
02:17:48,750 –> 02:17:51,030
can understand the Kindred nature of the

2826
02:17:51,030 –> 02:17:53,940
Stars and it is said that there is a

2827
02:17:53,940 –> 02:17:56,490
finer astronomy where the spiritual man

2828
02:17:56,490 –> 02:17:59,879
is the astronomer but the Sun also means

2829
02:17:59,879 –> 02:18:02,309
the soul and through knowledge of the

2830
02:18:02,309 –> 02:18:04,200
soul comes a knowledge of the realms of

2831
02:18:04,200 –> 02:18:11,850
life suture 27 by perfectly concentrated

2832
02:18:11,850 –> 02:18:14,730
meditation on the moon comes a knowledge

2833
02:18:14,730 –> 02:18:19,680
of the lunar mansions here again are

2834
02:18:19,680 –> 02:18:22,860
different meanings the moon is first the

2835
02:18:22,860 –> 02:18:25,830
companion planet which each day passes

2836
02:18:25,830 –> 02:18:27,750
backward through one mansion of the

2837
02:18:27,750 –> 02:18:31,139
stars by watching the moon the

2838
02:18:31,139 –> 02:18:32,639
boundaries of the mansion are learned

2839
02:18:32,639 –> 02:18:35,280
with their succession in the grace time

2840
02:18:35,280 –> 02:18:38,190
dial of the sky but the moon also

2841
02:18:38,190 –> 02:18:41,040
symbolizes the analytic mind with its

2842
02:18:41,040 –> 02:18:44,070
divided realms and these two may be

2843
02:18:44,070 –> 02:18:45,330
understood through perfectly

2844
02:18:45,330 –> 02:18:53,370
concentrated meditation sutra 28 by

2845
02:18:53,370 –> 02:18:55,889
perfectly concentrated meditation on the

2846
02:18:55,889 –> 02:18:58,650
fixed pole star comes a knowledge of the

2847
02:18:58,650 –> 02:19:03,350
motion of the stars addressing duty

2848
02:19:03,350 –> 02:19:05,959
stern daughter of the voice of God

2849
02:19:05,959 –> 02:19:09,450
Wordsworth finally said thou cost

2850
02:19:09,450 –> 02:19:12,180
preserve the stars from wrong and the

2851
02:19:12,180 –> 02:19:14,370
most ancient heavens through thee are

2852
02:19:14,370 –> 02:19:18,090
fresh and strong thus suggesting a

2853
02:19:18,090 –> 02:19:20,070
profound relation between the moral

2854
02:19:20,070 –> 02:19:22,139
powers and the powers that rule the

2855
02:19:22,139 –> 02:19:26,070
worlds so in the Sutra the fixed pole

2856
02:19:26,070 –> 02:19:28,440
star is the eternal spirit about which

2857
02:19:28,440 –> 02:19:31,170
all things move as well as the star

2858
02:19:31,170 –> 02:19:32,968
toward which points the access of the

2859
02:19:32,968 –> 02:19:37,170
earth deep mysteries attend both and the

2860
02:19:37,170 –> 02:19:39,270
veil of mystery is only to be raised by

2861
02:19:39,270 –> 02:19:42,570
meditation by open eye division of the

2862
02:19:42,570 –> 02:19:45,620
awakened spiritual man

2863
02:19:47,309 –> 02:19:51,460
sooo 229 perfectly concentrated

2864
02:19:51,460 –> 02:19:53,891
meditation on the center of force in the

2865
02:19:53,891 –> 02:19:55,931
lower trunk brings an understanding of

2866
02:19:55,931 –> 02:20:00,431
the order of the bodily powers we are

2867
02:20:00,431 –> 02:20:02,171
coming to a vitally important part of

2868
02:20:02,171 –> 02:20:04,811
the teaching of yoga namely the

2869
02:20:04,811 –> 02:20:06,730
spiritual man’s attainment of full self

2870
02:20:06,730 –> 02:20:08,771
consciousness the awakening of the

2871
02:20:08,771 –> 02:20:10,540
spiritual man as a self-conscious

2872
02:20:10,540 –> 02:20:13,061
individual behind and above the natural

2873
02:20:13,061 –> 02:20:17,051
man in this awakening and in the process

2874
02:20:17,051 –> 02:20:19,210
of gestation which precedes it there is

2875
02:20:19,210 –> 02:20:20,980
a close relation with the powers of the

2876
02:20:20,980 –> 02:20:23,561
natural man which are in a certain sense

2877
02:20:23,561 –> 02:20:26,141
the projection outward and downward of

2878
02:20:26,141 –> 02:20:29,830
the powers of the spiritual man this is

2879
02:20:29,830 –> 02:20:31,690
notably true of that creative power of

2880
02:20:31,690 –> 02:20:34,540
the spiritual man which when embodied in

2881
02:20:34,540 –> 02:20:36,671
the natural man becomes the power of

2882
02:20:36,671 –> 02:20:40,181
generation not only is this power the

2883
02:20:40,181 –> 02:20:41,891
cause of the continuance of a bodily

2884
02:20:41,891 –> 02:20:44,710
race of mankind but further in the

2885
02:20:44,710 –> 02:20:47,261
individual it is a key to the dominance

2886
02:20:47,261 –> 02:20:50,561
of the personal life rising as it were

2887
02:20:50,561 –> 02:20:52,750
through the life channels of the body it

2888
02:20:52,750 –> 02:20:54,881
flushes personality with physical force

2889
02:20:54,881 –> 02:20:58,120
and maintains and colors the illusion

2890
02:20:58,120 –> 02:21:00,221
that the physical life is the dominant

2891
02:21:00,221 –> 02:21:02,891
and all-important expression of life in

2892
02:21:02,891 –> 02:21:05,801
due time when the spiritual man has

2893
02:21:05,801 –> 02:21:07,900
begun to take form the creative force

2894
02:21:07,900 –> 02:21:10,271
will be drawn off and become operative

2895
02:21:10,271 –> 02:21:11,771
in building the body of the spiritual

2896
02:21:11,771 –> 02:21:14,381
man just as it has been operative in the

2897
02:21:14,381 –> 02:21:16,421
building of physical bodies through

2898
02:21:16,421 –> 02:21:19,681
generation in the natural world

2899
02:21:19,681 –> 02:21:22,601
perfectly concentrated meditation on the

2900
02:21:22,601 –> 02:21:25,870
nature of this force means first that

2901
02:21:25,870 –> 02:21:27,311
rising of the consciousness into the

2902
02:21:27,311 –> 02:21:29,921
spiritual world already described which

2903
02:21:29,921 –> 02:21:31,450
gives the one Shore foothold for

2904
02:21:31,450 –> 02:21:34,601
meditation and then from that spiritual

2905
02:21:34,601 –> 02:21:37,000
point advantage not only an insight into

2906
02:21:37,000 –> 02:21:39,280
the creative force in its spiritual and

2907
02:21:39,280 –> 02:21:42,101
physical aspects but also a gradually

2908
02:21:42,101 –> 02:21:43,900
attained control of this wonderful force

2909
02:21:43,900 –> 02:21:46,271
which will mean its direction to the

2910
02:21:46,271 –> 02:21:48,190
body of the spiritual man and its

2911
02:21:48,190 –> 02:21:49,721
gradual withdrawal from the body of the

2912
02:21:49,721 –> 02:21:53,141
natural man until the over pressure so

2913
02:21:53,141 –> 02:21:55,271
general and such a fruitful source of

2914
02:21:55,271 –> 02:21:58,271
misery in our day is abated and purity

2915
02:21:58,271 –> 02:22:00,000
takes the place of passion

2916
02:22:00,000 –> 02:22:03,311
this overpressure which is a cause of so

2917
02:22:03,311 –> 02:22:05,590
many evils and so much of human shame is

2918
02:22:05,590 –> 02:22:09,940
an abnormal not a natural condition it

2919
02:22:09,940 –> 02:22:11,980
is primarily due to spiritual blindness

2920
02:22:11,980 –> 02:22:14,351
to blindness regarding the spiritual man

2921
02:22:14,351 –> 02:22:17,860
and ignorance even if his existence for

2922
02:22:17,860 –> 02:22:19,900
by this blind ignorance are closed the

2923
02:22:19,900 –> 02:22:21,851
channels through which where they open

2924
02:22:21,851 –> 02:22:24,130
the creative force could flow into the

2925
02:22:24,130 –> 02:22:26,050
body of the spiritual man they’re

2926
02:22:26,050 –> 02:22:29,170
building up in a mortal vesture there is

2927
02:22:29,170 –> 02:22:31,120
no cure for blindness with its

2928
02:22:31,120 –> 02:22:33,221
consequent overpressure and attendance

2929
02:22:33,221 –> 02:22:36,000
misery and shame but spiritual vision

2930
02:22:36,000 –> 02:22:40,450
spiritual aspiration sacrifice the new

2931
02:22:40,450 –> 02:22:43,210
birth from above there is no other way

2932
02:22:43,210 –> 02:22:45,460
to lighten the burden to lift the misery

2933
02:22:45,460 –> 02:22:48,400
and shame from human life therefore let

2934
02:22:48,400 –> 02:22:50,730
us follow after sacrifice and aspiration

2935
02:22:50,730 –> 02:22:54,370
let us seek the light in this way only

2936
02:22:54,370 –> 02:22:56,590
shall we gain that insight into the

2937
02:22:56,590 –> 02:22:58,630
order of the bodily powers and that

2938
02:22:58,630 –> 02:23:03,271
mastery of them which this Sutra implies

2939
02:23:04,200 –> 02:23:08,440
Sutra 30 by perfectly concentrated

2940
02:23:08,440 –> 02:23:11,141
meditation on the center of force in the

2941
02:23:11,141 –> 02:23:13,030
well of the throat there comes the

2942
02:23:13,030 –> 02:23:17,290
cessation of hunger and thirst we are

2943
02:23:17,290 –> 02:23:18,730
continuing the study of the bodily

2944
02:23:18,730 –> 02:23:21,160
powers and centres of force in their

2945
02:23:21,160 –> 02:23:23,141
relation to the powers and forces of the

2946
02:23:23,141 –> 02:23:26,230
spiritual man we have already considered

2947
02:23:26,230 –> 02:23:28,811
the dominant power of physical life the

2948
02:23:28,811 –> 02:23:30,880
creative power which secures the

2949
02:23:30,880 –> 02:23:33,250
continuance of physical life and further

2950
02:23:33,250 –> 02:23:35,681
the manner in which through aspiration

2951
02:23:35,681 –> 02:23:38,230
and sacrifice it is gradually raised and

2952
02:23:38,230 –> 02:23:40,000
set to the work about building the body

2953
02:23:40,000 –> 02:23:43,630
of the spiritual man we come now to the

2954
02:23:43,630 –> 02:23:46,030
dominant psychic force the power which

2955
02:23:46,030 –> 02:23:48,880
manifests itself in speech and in virtue

2956
02:23:48,880 –> 02:23:50,590
of which the voice mate carries so much

2957
02:23:50,590 –> 02:23:53,290
of the personal magnetism endowing the

2958
02:23:53,290 –> 02:23:55,840
order with a tongue of fire magical in

2959
02:23:55,840 –> 02:23:57,971
its power to arouse and rule the

2960
02:23:57,971 –> 02:24:01,420
emotions of his hearers this emotional

2961
02:24:01,420 –> 02:24:03,910
power this distinctively psychical force

2962
02:24:03,910 –> 02:24:07,300
is the cause of hunger and thirst the

2963
02:24:07,300 –> 02:24:08,950
psychical hunger and thirst for

2964
02:24:08,950 –> 02:24:11,681
sensations which is the source of our

2965
02:24:11,681 –> 02:24:12,800
2-sided life

2966
02:24:12,800 –> 02:24:15,080
emotionalism with its hopes and fears

2967
02:24:15,080 –> 02:24:18,319
its expectations and memories its

2968
02:24:18,319 –> 02:24:21,800
desires and hates the source of the

2969
02:24:21,800 –> 02:24:24,620
psychical power or perhaps we should say

2970
02:24:24,620 –> 02:24:26,840
its center of activity in the physical

2971
02:24:26,840 –> 02:24:29,030
body is said to be in the cavity of the

2972
02:24:29,030 –> 02:24:32,359
throat thus in the tight area Upanishad

2973
02:24:32,359 –> 02:24:35,720
it is written there is the shining ether

2974
02:24:35,720 –> 02:24:38,000
in the inner being therein is the

2975
02:24:38,000 –> 02:24:40,600
spiritual man formed through thought

2976
02:24:40,600 –> 02:24:44,870
immortal golden inward in the palate the

2977
02:24:44,870 –> 02:24:48,380
organ that hangs down like a nipple this

2978
02:24:48,380 –> 02:24:51,800
is the womb of Indra and there where the

2979
02:24:51,800 –> 02:24:53,990
dividing of the hair turns extending

2980
02:24:53,990 –> 02:24:57,290
upwards to the crown of the head Andra

2981
02:24:57,290 –> 02:24:58,760
is the name given to the creative power

2982
02:24:58,760 –> 02:25:01,430
of which we have spoken and which we are

2983
02:25:01,430 –> 02:25:03,890
told resides in the organ which hangs

2984
02:25:03,890 –> 02:25:08,020
down like a nipple inward and the palate

2985
02:25:08,380 –> 02:25:12,290
suture 31 by perfectly concentrated

2986
02:25:12,290 –> 02:25:14,600
meditation on the center of force in the

2987
02:25:14,600 –> 02:25:15,350
channel called

2988
02:25:15,350 –> 02:25:20,020
the tortoise formed comes steadfastness

2989
02:25:20,020 –> 02:25:23,000
we are concerned now with the center of

2990
02:25:23,000 –> 02:25:25,040
nervous or psychical force below the

2991
02:25:25,040 –> 02:25:27,140
cavity of the throat in the chest in

2992
02:25:27,140 –> 02:25:30,380
which is felt the sensation of fear the

2993
02:25:30,380 –> 02:25:32,359
center the disturbance of which sets the

2994
02:25:32,359 –> 02:25:34,189
heart beating miserably with dread or

2995
02:25:34,189 –> 02:25:36,319
which produces that sense of Terror

2996
02:25:36,319 –> 02:25:37,910
through which the heart is said thus and

2997
02:25:37,910 –> 02:25:41,180
still when the truth concerning fear is

2998
02:25:41,180 –> 02:25:43,189
thoroughly mastered through spiritual

2999
02:25:43,189 –> 02:25:45,050
insight into the immortal fearless life

3000
02:25:45,050 –> 02:25:47,240
then this force is perfectly controlled

3001
02:25:47,240 –> 02:25:50,270
there is no more fear just as through

3002
02:25:50,270 –> 02:25:52,100
the control of the psychic power which

3003
02:25:52,100 –> 02:25:53,359
works through the nerve center in the

3004
02:25:53,359 –> 02:25:55,729
throat there comes a cessation of hunger

3005
02:25:55,729 –> 02:25:59,540
and thirst thereafter these forces or

3006
02:25:59,540 –> 02:26:01,880
their spiritual prototypes are turned to

3007
02:26:01,880 –> 02:26:04,550
the building of the spiritual map always

3008
02:26:04,550 –> 02:26:06,290
it must be remembered the victory is

3009
02:26:06,290 –> 02:26:08,810
first a spiritual one only later does it

3010
02:26:08,810 –> 02:26:12,160
bring control of the bodily powers

3011
02:26:13,060 –> 02:26:17,090
future 32 through perfectly concentrated

3012
02:26:17,090 –> 02:26:19,069
meditation on the light in the head

3013
02:26:19,069 –> 02:26:21,410
comes the vision of the Masters who have

3014
02:26:21,410 –> 02:26:24,670
attained the church

3015
02:26:24,670 –> 02:26:26,439
is that there’s a certain center of

3016
02:26:26,439 –> 02:26:28,840
force in the head perhaps the pineal

3017
02:26:28,840 –> 02:26:30,790
gland which some of our Western

3018
02:26:30,790 –> 02:26:32,530
philosophers had supposed to be the

3019
02:26:32,530 –> 02:26:34,930
dwelling of the soul a Center which is

3020
02:26:34,930 –> 02:26:36,910
as it were the doorway between the

3021
02:26:36,910 –> 02:26:39,430
natural and the spiritual men it is the

3022
02:26:39,430 –> 02:26:40,570
seat of that better and wiser

3023
02:26:40,570 –> 02:26:42,520
consciousness behind that would look in

3024
02:26:42,520 –> 02:26:43,810
consciousness in the forward part of the

3025
02:26:43,810 –> 02:26:46,180
head that better and wiser consciousness

3026
02:26:46,180 –> 02:26:48,790
of the back of the mind would use

3027
02:26:48,790 –> 02:26:50,560
spiritual things and seeks to impress

3028
02:26:50,560 –> 02:26:51,939
the spiritual view on the outward

3029
02:26:51,939 –> 02:26:53,560
looking consciousness in the forward

3030
02:26:53,560 –> 02:26:56,110
part of the head it is a spiritual man

3031
02:26:56,110 –> 02:26:58,390
seeking to guide the natural man seeking

3032
02:26:58,390 –> 02:26:59,800
to bring the natural man to concern

3033
02:26:59,800 –> 02:27:02,130
himself with things with his immortality

3034
02:27:02,130 –> 02:27:04,360
this is suggested in the words of the

3035
02:27:04,360 –> 02:27:07,540
apana shot already quoted there where

3036
02:27:07,540 –> 02:27:09,760
the dividing of the hair turns extending

3037
02:27:09,760 –> 02:27:12,250
upward to the crown of the head all of

3038
02:27:12,250 –> 02:27:14,680
which may sound very fantastical until

3039
02:27:14,680 –> 02:27:17,680
one comes to understand it it is said

3040
02:27:17,680 –> 02:27:19,600
that when is powers fully awakened it

3041
02:27:19,600 –> 02:27:21,370
brings a vision of the great companions

3042
02:27:21,370 –> 02:27:23,260
of the spiritual men those who have

3043
02:27:23,260 –> 02:27:25,479
already attained crossing over to the

3044
02:27:25,479 –> 02:27:27,250
further shore of the sea of death and

3045
02:27:27,250 –> 02:27:29,890
rebirth perhaps it is to this divine

3046
02:27:29,890 –> 02:27:31,840
sight that the master eluded who is

3047
02:27:31,840 –> 02:27:34,450
reported to have said I counsel you to

3048
02:27:34,450 –> 02:27:39,160
buy of me I solve that he may see it is

3049
02:27:39,160 –> 02:27:40,810
a vist same vision of the great

3050
02:27:40,810 –> 02:27:42,970
companions the children of life that a

3051
02:27:42,970 –> 02:27:46,120
seer wrote though inland far we be our

3052
02:27:46,120 –> 02:27:48,900
souls have sight of that immortal sea

3053
02:27:48,900 –> 02:27:52,000
which brought up hither can in a moment

3054
02:27:52,000 –> 02:27:54,670
travel vivir and see the children sport

3055
02:27:54,670 –> 02:27:57,160
upon the shore and hear the mighty

3056
02:27:57,160 –> 02:28:04,300
waters rolling ever more secure 33 or

3057
02:28:04,300 –> 02:28:06,160
through the divining power of intuition

3058
02:28:06,160 –> 02:28:10,450
he knows all things this is really the

3059
02:28:10,450 –> 02:28:12,910
supplement the spiritual side of a Sutra

3060
02:28:12,910 –> 02:28:15,700
just translated step by step as the

3061
02:28:15,700 –> 02:28:17,470
better of consciousness the spiritual

3062
02:28:17,470 –> 02:28:19,260
view gains force in the back of the mind

3063
02:28:19,260 –> 02:28:21,970
so in the same measure the spiritual man

3064
02:28:21,970 –> 02:28:24,250
is gaining the power to see learning to

3065
02:28:24,250 –> 02:28:26,470
open the spiritual eyes when the eyes

3066
02:28:26,470 –> 02:28:28,090
are fully opened the spiritual man

3067
02:28:28,090 –> 02:28:29,770
behold the great companion standing

3068
02:28:29,770 –> 02:28:31,810
about him he has begun to know all

3069
02:28:31,810 –> 02:28:34,870
things this divining power of intuition

3070
02:28:34,870 –> 02:28:36,880
is the power which lies above and behind

3071
02:28:36,880 –> 02:28:38,550
the so called rational mind

3072
02:28:38,550 –> 02:28:41,020
the rational mind formulates a question

3073
02:28:41,020 –> 02:28:43,840
and lays it before the intuition which

3074
02:28:43,840 –> 02:28:45,940
gives a real answer often immediately

3075
02:28:45,940 –> 02:28:48,130
distorted by the rational mind yet

3076
02:28:48,130 –> 02:28:51,340
always embodying a kernel of truth it is

3077
02:28:51,340 –> 02:28:53,290
by this process through which the

3078
02:28:53,290 –> 02:28:55,180
rational mind brings questions to the

3079
02:28:55,180 –> 02:28:57,610
intuition for solution but the truths of

3080
02:28:57,610 –> 02:28:59,380
science are reached the flashes of

3081
02:28:59,380 –> 02:29:01,930
discovery in genius but this higher

3082
02:29:01,930 –> 02:29:04,060
power need not work in subordination to

3083
02:29:04,060 –> 02:29:06,790
the so called rational mind it may act

3084
02:29:06,790 –> 02:29:10,060
directly as full illumination the vision

3085
02:29:10,060 –> 02:29:15,910
and the Faculty divine future 34 by

3086
02:29:15,910 –> 02:29:17,830
perfectly concentrated meditation on the

3087
02:29:17,830 –> 02:29:20,590
heart the interior being comes the

3088
02:29:20,590 –> 02:29:24,580
knowledge of consciousness the heart

3089
02:29:24,580 –> 02:29:26,920
here seems to mean as it so often does

3090
02:29:26,920 –> 02:29:28,990
in the upon assad’s the interior

3091
02:29:28,990 –> 02:29:31,450
spiritual nature the consciousness is a

3092
02:29:31,450 –> 02:29:33,580
spiritual man which is related to the

3093
02:29:33,580 –> 02:29:36,550
heart and to the wisdom of the heart by

3094
02:29:36,550 –> 02:29:38,740
steadily seeking after and finding the

3095
02:29:38,740 –> 02:29:40,960
consciousness of the spiritual man by

3096
02:29:40,960 –> 02:29:42,730
coming to consciousness as the spiritual

3097
02:29:42,730 –> 02:29:44,770
man a perfect knowledge of consciousness

3098
02:29:44,770 –> 02:29:47,110
will be attained for the consciousness

3099
02:29:47,110 –> 02:29:48,910
of a spiritual man has this defined

3100
02:29:48,910 –> 02:29:51,610
quality while being and remaining a

3101
02:29:51,610 –> 02:29:53,920
truly individual consciousness it at the

3102
02:29:53,920 –> 02:29:56,020
same time flows over as it were and

3103
02:29:56,020 –> 02:29:58,300
blends with a divine consciousness above

3104
02:29:58,300 –> 02:30:00,850
and about it the consciousness of the

3105
02:30:00,850 –> 02:30:02,950
grave companions and by showing itself

3106
02:30:02,950 –> 02:30:04,330
to be one with the divine consciousness

3107
02:30:04,330 –> 02:30:06,610
it reveals the nature of all

3108
02:30:06,610 –> 02:30:08,740
consciousness the secret that all

3109
02:30:08,740 –> 02:30:15,630
consciousness is one and divine sutra 35

3110
02:30:15,630 –> 02:30:18,850
the personal self seeks to feast on life

3111
02:30:18,850 –> 02:30:20,920
through a failure to perceive the

3112
02:30:20,920 –> 02:30:22,690
distinction between the personal self

3113
02:30:22,690 –> 02:30:25,960
and the spiritual man all personal

3114
02:30:25,960 –> 02:30:28,060
experience really exists for the sake of

3115
02:30:28,060 –> 02:30:31,840
another namely the spiritual man by

3116
02:30:31,840 –> 02:30:33,760
perfectly concentrated meditation on

3117
02:30:33,760 –> 02:30:35,740
experience for the sake of the self

3118
02:30:35,740 –> 02:30:39,960
comes a knowledge of the spiritual noun

3119
02:30:40,320 –> 02:30:43,180
the divine ray of the higher self which

3120
02:30:43,180 –> 02:30:45,190
is eternal impersonal and abstract

3121
02:30:45,190 –> 02:30:47,230
descend into life and forms a

3122
02:30:47,230 –> 02:30:49,690
personality which through the stress and

3123
02:30:49,690 –> 02:30:51,370
storm of life is hammered into a

3124
02:30:51,370 –> 02:30:52,580
definite and

3125
02:30:52,580 –> 02:30:55,880
self-conscious individuality the problem

3126
02:30:55,880 –> 02:30:58,430
is to blend these two powers taking the

3127
02:30:58,430 –> 02:31:00,530
eternal and spiritual being of the first

3128
02:31:00,530 –> 02:31:02,870
and blending with it transferring into

3129
02:31:02,870 –> 02:31:04,880
it the self-conscious individuality of

3130
02:31:04,880 –> 02:31:06,950
the second and thus bringing to life a

3131
02:31:06,950 –> 02:31:10,340
third being the spiritual man who is

3132
02:31:10,340 –> 02:31:11,870
heir to the immortality of his father

3133
02:31:11,870 –> 02:31:14,390
the higher self and yet has the self

3134
02:31:14,390 –> 02:31:16,520
conscious concrete individuality of his

3135
02:31:16,520 –> 02:31:19,970
other parent the personal self this is

3136
02:31:19,970 –> 02:31:22,550
the true Immaculate Conception the new

3137
02:31:22,550 –> 02:31:24,920
birth from above conceived of the Holy

3138
02:31:24,920 –> 02:31:29,060
Spirit of this new birth it is said that

3139
02:31:29,060 –> 02:31:32,689
which is born of the Spirit is spirit ye

3140
02:31:32,689 –> 02:31:36,620
must be born again rightly understood

3141
02:31:36,620 –> 02:31:38,780
therefore the whole life of the personal

3142
02:31:38,780 –> 02:31:42,050
man is for another not for himself he

3143
02:31:42,050 –> 02:31:44,630
exists only to render his very life and

3144
02:31:44,630 –> 02:31:47,330
all his experience for the building up

3145
02:31:47,330 –> 02:31:50,030
of the spiritual man only through

3146
02:31:50,030 –> 02:31:51,950
failure to see this does he seek

3147
02:31:51,950 –> 02:31:54,320
enjoyment for himself he secured the

3148
02:31:54,320 –> 02:31:56,540
feast of life for himself not

3149
02:31:56,540 –> 02:31:58,430
understanding that he must live for the

3150
02:31:58,430 –> 02:32:01,520
other live sacrificially offering both

3151
02:32:01,520 –> 02:32:03,890
feasts and his very being on the altar

3152
02:32:03,890 –> 02:32:06,380
giving himself as a contrition for the

3153
02:32:06,380 –> 02:32:09,170
building of the spiritual man when he

3154
02:32:09,170 –> 02:32:11,390
does understand this and lives for the

3155
02:32:11,390 –> 02:32:13,580
higher self setting his harsh and

3156
02:32:13,580 –> 02:32:15,620
thought on the higher self then his

3157
02:32:15,620 –> 02:32:17,990
sacrifice bears divine fruit the

3158
02:32:17,990 –> 02:32:20,240
spiritual man is built up consciousness

3159
02:32:20,240 –> 02:32:22,550
awakens in him and he comes fully into

3160
02:32:22,550 –> 02:32:24,260
being as a divine and immortal

3161
02:32:24,260 –> 02:32:32,479
individuality Sutra 36 thereupon are

3162
02:32:32,479 –> 02:32:34,670
born the divine power of intuition and

3163
02:32:34,670 –> 02:32:38,450
the hearing the touch division the taste

3164
02:32:38,450 –> 02:32:41,000
and the power of smell of a spiritual

3165
02:32:41,000 –> 02:32:44,780
man when in virtue of the perpetual

3166
02:32:44,780 –> 02:32:47,420
sacrifice of the personal man daily and

3167
02:32:47,420 –> 02:32:49,130
hourly giving his life for his divine

3168
02:32:49,130 –> 02:32:51,740
brother with spiritual men and through

3169
02:32:51,740 –> 02:32:53,479
the radiance ever pouring down from the

3170
02:32:53,479 –> 02:32:56,030
higher self eternal in the heavens the

3171
02:32:56,030 –> 02:32:58,580
spiritual man comes to birth there

3172
02:32:58,580 –> 02:33:00,830
awaken him those powers whose psychical

3173
02:33:00,830 –> 02:33:02,740
counterparts we know in the personal man

3174
02:33:02,740 –> 02:33:06,040
the spiritual man begins to see – he

3175
02:33:06,040 –> 02:33:09,580
to touch to taste and besides the senses

3176
02:33:09,580 –> 02:33:11,471
of the spiritual man there are weeks his

3177
02:33:11,471 –> 02:33:14,021
mind that divine counterpart of the mind

3178
02:33:14,021 –> 02:33:16,841
of the physical man the power of direct

3179
02:33:16,841 –> 02:33:19,091
and immediate knowledge the power of

3180
02:33:19,091 –> 02:33:22,690
spiritual intuition of divination this

3181
02:33:22,690 –> 02:33:25,061
power as we have seen owes its virtue to

3182
02:33:25,061 –> 02:33:26,921
the unity the continuity of

3183
02:33:26,921 –> 02:33:29,410
consciousness whereby whatever is known

3184
02:33:29,410 –> 02:33:31,841
to any consciousness is knowable by any

3185
02:33:31,841 –> 02:33:33,881
other consciousness thus the

3186
02:33:33,881 –> 02:33:35,830
consciousness of the spiritual man who

3187
02:33:35,830 –> 02:33:37,301
is above are now barriers of

3188
02:33:37,301 –> 02:33:40,540
separateness is an intimate touch with

3189
02:33:40,540 –> 02:33:41,500
the consciousness of the great

3190
02:33:41,500 –> 02:33:43,811
companions and can draw on that vast

3191
02:33:43,811 –> 02:33:47,320
reservoir for all real needs thus arises

3192
02:33:47,320 –> 02:33:49,030
within the spiritual man that certain

3193
02:33:49,030 –> 02:33:51,240

stand in contre distinction to the

highest spiritual vision in

3215
02:35:10,060 –> 02:35:12,530
manifestation they are called magical

3216
02:35:12,530 –> 02:35:16,250
powers the divine man is destined to

3217
02:35:16,250 –> 02:35:18,439
supersede the spiritual man as the

3218
02:35:18,439 –> 02:35:20,620
spiritual man supersedes the natural man

3219
02:35:20,620 –> 02:35:23,990
then the disciple becomes a master the

3220
02:35:23,990 –> 02:35:25,550
opend powers of the spiritual man

3221
02:35:25,550 –> 02:35:28,850
spiritual vision hearing and touch stand

3222
02:35:28,850 –> 02:35:30,620
therefore in contr distinction to the

3223
02:35:30,620 –> 02:35:33,020
higher divine power above them and must

3224
02:35:33,020 –> 02:35:34,819
in no wise be regarded as the end of the

3225
02:35:34,819 –> 02:35:36,710
way for the path has no end

3226
02:35:36,710 –> 02:35:38,600
but rises ever to higher and higher

3227
02:35:38,600 –> 02:35:41,120
glories the soul’s growth and splendor

3228
02:35:41,120 –> 02:35:43,939
have no limit so that if the spiritual

3229
02:35:43,939 –> 02:35:45,290
powers we have been considering are

3230
02:35:45,290 –> 02:35:47,149
regarded as in any sense

3231
02:35:47,149 –> 02:35:49,819
final there are hindrance a barrier to

3232
02:35:49,819 –> 02:35:51,819
the far higher powers of the divine man

3233
02:35:51,819 –> 02:35:54,140
but viewed from below from the

3234
02:35:54,140 –> 02:35:56,149
standpoint of normal physical experience

3235
02:35:56,149 –> 02:35:58,850
there are powers truly magical as the

3236
02:35:58,850 –> 02:36:00,950
power is natural to a four-dimensional

3237
02:36:00,950 –> 02:36:03,020
being will appear magical to a

3238
02:36:03,020 –> 02:36:08,020
three-dimensional being since your 38

3239
02:36:08,020 –> 02:36:10,250
through the weakening of the causes of

3240
02:36:10,250 –> 02:36:12,500
bondage and by learning the method of

3241
02:36:12,500 –> 02:36:14,450
passing the consciousness is transferred

3242
02:36:14,450 –> 02:36:18,920
to the other body in due time after the

3243
02:36:18,920 –> 02:36:20,689
spiritual man has been formed and grown

3244
02:36:20,689 –> 02:36:22,490
stable through the forces and virtues

3245
02:36:22,490 –> 02:36:25,069
already enumerated and after the senses

3246
02:36:25,069 –> 02:36:27,140
of the spiritual man have awaked their

3247
02:36:27,140 –> 02:36:28,850
comments the transfer of the dominant

3248
02:36:28,850 –> 02:36:30,710
consciousness the sense of individuality

3249
02:36:30,710 –> 02:36:33,490
from the physical to the spiritual man

3250
02:36:33,490 –> 02:36:35,750
thereafter the physical man is felt to

3251
02:36:35,750 –> 02:36:38,030
be a secondary of subordinate

3252
02:36:38,030 –> 02:36:39,891
an instrument through whom the spiritual

3253
02:36:39,891 –> 02:36:42,261
man works and a spiritual man is felt to

3254
02:36:42,261 –> 02:36:45,261
be the real individuality this is in a

3255
02:36:45,261 –> 02:36:47,150
sense the attainment to full salvation

3256
02:36:47,150 –> 02:36:49,910
and immortal life yet it is not the

3257
02:36:49,910 –> 02:36:52,160
final goal or resting place but only the

3258
02:36:52,160 –> 02:36:55,820
beginning of the greater way the means

3259
02:36:55,820 –> 02:36:58,040
Frida’s transfer are described as the

3260
02:36:58,040 –> 02:36:59,811
weakening of the causes of bondage and

3261
02:36:59,811 –> 02:37:01,730
an understanding of the method of

3262
02:37:01,730 –> 02:37:03,740
passing from the one consciousness to

3263
02:37:03,740 –> 02:37:06,530
the other the first may also be

3264
02:37:06,530 –> 02:37:08,931
described as detachment and comes from

3265
02:37:08,931 –> 02:37:10,971
the conquest of the delusion that the

3266
02:37:10,971 –> 02:37:14,690
personal self is the real man when that

3267
02:37:14,690 –> 02:37:17,330
delusion abates and is held in check the

3268
02:37:17,330 –> 02:37:19,130
finer consciousness of the spiritual man

3269
02:37:19,130 –> 02:37:21,141
begins to shine in the background of the

3270
02:37:21,141 –> 02:37:23,900
mind the transfer of the sense of

3271
02:37:23,900 –> 02:37:25,250
individuality to this finer

3272
02:37:25,250 –> 02:37:27,620
consciousness and thus to the spiritual

3273
02:37:27,620 –> 02:37:29,300
man then becomes a matter of

3274
02:37:29,300 –> 02:37:32,420
recollection of attention primarily a

3275
02:37:32,420 –> 02:37:34,311
matter of taking a deeper interest in

3276
02:37:34,311 –> 02:37:36,170
the life and doings of the spiritual man

3277
02:37:36,170 –> 02:37:38,480
than in the pleasures or occupations of

3278
02:37:38,480 –> 02:37:41,391
the personality therefore it is said

3279
02:37:41,391 –> 02:37:43,940
they not up for yourselves treasures

3280
02:37:43,940 –> 02:37:46,400
upon earth where moth and rust cloth

3281
02:37:46,400 –> 02:37:48,380
corrupt and where thieves break through

3282
02:37:48,380 –> 02:37:50,480
and steal but lay up for yourselves

3283
02:37:50,480 –> 02:37:52,730
treasures in heaven where neither moth

3284
02:37:52,730 –> 02:37:55,370
nor rust cloth corrupt and where thieves

3285
02:37:55,370 –> 02:37:58,490
do not break through nor steal for where

3286
02:37:58,490 –> 02:38:00,410
your treasure is there will your heart

3287
02:38:00,410 –> 02:38:02,681
be also

3288
02:38:03,400 –> 02:38:07,580
future 39 through mastery of the upward

3289
02:38:07,580 –> 02:38:09,650
life comes freedom from the dangers of

3290
02:38:09,650 –> 02:38:12,920
water morass and thorny places and the

3291
02:38:12,920 –> 02:38:17,210
power of Ascension is gained here is one

3292
02:38:17,210 –> 02:38:19,550
of the sentences so characteristic of

3293
02:38:19,550 –> 02:38:21,590
this author and indeed of the Eastern

3294
02:38:21,590 –> 02:38:23,601
spirit in which there is an obvious

3295
02:38:23,601 –> 02:38:26,000
exterior meaning and within this a clear

3296
02:38:26,000 –> 02:38:28,311
interior meaning not quite so obvious

3297
02:38:28,311 –> 02:38:31,851
but far more vital the surface meaning

3298
02:38:31,851 –> 02:38:33,710
is that by mastery of a certain power

3299
02:38:33,710 –> 02:38:36,980
here called the upward life and akin to

3300
02:38:36,980 –> 02:38:39,200
levitation there comes the ability to

3301
02:38:39,200 –> 02:38:41,300
walk on water or to pass over thorny

3302
02:38:41,300 –> 02:38:44,570
places without wounding the feet but

3303
02:38:44,570 –> 02:38:46,761
there is a deeper meaning when we speak

3304
02:38:46,761 –> 02:38:48,561
of the disciples path as a path of

3305
02:38:48,561 –> 02:38:51,450
thorns we use a symbol and the

3306
02:38:51,450 –> 02:38:54,181
same symbol is used here the upward life

3307
02:38:54,181 –> 02:38:55,730
means something more than the power

3308
02:38:55,730 –> 02:38:58,771
often manifested in abnormal psychical

3309
02:38:58,771 –> 02:39:01,141
experiences of levitating the physical

3310
02:39:01,141 –> 02:39:03,480
body or nearby physical objects

3311
02:39:03,480 –> 02:39:06,420
it means the strong power of aspiration

3312
02:39:06,420 –> 02:39:09,900
of upward will which first builds and

3313
02:39:09,900 –> 02:39:11,641
then awakes the spiritual man and

3314
02:39:11,641 –> 02:39:13,800
finally transfers the conscious

3315
02:39:13,800 –> 02:39:16,440
individuality to him for it is he who

3316
02:39:16,440 –> 02:39:18,570
passes safely over the waters of death

3317
02:39:18,570 –> 02:39:20,730
and rebirth and is not pierced by the

3318
02:39:20,730 –> 02:39:23,580
thorns in the past therefore it is said

3319
02:39:23,580 –> 02:39:25,021
that he who would tread the path of

3320
02:39:25,021 –> 02:39:27,210
power must look for a home in the air

3321
02:39:27,210 –> 02:39:31,440
and afterwards in the ether harvest

3322
02:39:31,440 –> 02:39:33,690
upward life this is written in the kata

3323
02:39:33,690 –> 02:39:37,380
upon Ishod 101 are the hearts channels

3324
02:39:37,380 –> 02:39:41,340
of these one passes to the crown going

3325
02:39:41,340 –> 02:39:45,030
up this he comes to the immortal this is

3326
02:39:45,030 –> 02:39:47,101
the power of ascension spoken of in the

3327
02:39:47,101 –> 02:39:54,630
Sutra Sutra 40 by mastery of the binding

3328
02:39:54,630 –> 02:39:58,860
life comes radiance in the Upanishads it

3329
02:39:58,860 –> 02:40:00,690
is said that this binding life unites

3330
02:40:00,690 –> 02:40:02,851
the upward life to the downward life and

3331
02:40:02,851 –> 02:40:05,370
these lives have their analogies in the

3332
02:40:05,370 –> 02:40:08,190
vital breaths in the body the thought in

3333
02:40:08,190 –> 02:40:10,320
the text seems to be that when the

3334
02:40:10,320 –> 02:40:12,150
personality is brought thoroughly under

3335
02:40:12,150 –> 02:40:14,340
control of a spiritual man through the

3336
02:40:14,340 –> 02:40:15,840
life currents which binds them together

3337
02:40:15,840 –> 02:40:18,330
the personality is endowed with a new

3338
02:40:18,330 –> 02:40:21,360
force a strong personal magnetism one

3339
02:40:21,360 –> 02:40:23,730
might call it such as is often an

3340
02:40:23,730 –> 02:40:27,150
appendage of genius but the text seems

3341
02:40:27,150 –> 02:40:29,340
to mean more than this and to have in

3342
02:40:29,340 –> 02:40:31,370
view the Wester of the color of the Sun

3343
02:40:31,370 –> 02:40:33,570
attributed by the upon assad’s to the

3344
02:40:33,570 –> 02:40:36,061
spiritual man that Wester which a

3345
02:40:36,061 –> 02:40:39,150
disciple has left described the lord

3346
02:40:39,150 –> 02:40:41,641
shall change our vile body that it may

3347
02:40:41,641 –> 02:40:44,811
be fashioned like unto his glorious body

3348
02:40:44,811 –> 02:40:47,280
perhaps body of radiance would better

3349
02:40:47,280 –> 02:40:50,160
translate the Greek in both these

3350
02:40:50,160 –> 02:40:52,710
passages the teaching seemed to be that

3351
02:40:52,710 –> 02:40:54,690
the body of the full-grown spiritual man

3352
02:40:54,690 –> 02:40:57,360
is radiant or luminous for those at

3353
02:40:57,360 –> 02:40:59,040
least who have anointed their eyes with

3354
02:40:59,040 –> 02:41:02,540
eye cells so that they see

3355
02:41:03,940 –> 02:41:07,630
suits you’re 41 from perfectly

3356
02:41:07,630 –> 02:41:09,430
concentrated meditation on the

3357
02:41:09,430 –> 02:41:11,530
correlation of hearing and see ether

3358
02:41:11,530 –> 02:41:15,840
comes the power of spiritual hearing

3359
02:41:15,990 –> 02:41:18,880
physical sounds we are told is carried

3360
02:41:18,880 –> 02:41:21,641
by the air or by water iron or some

3361
02:41:21,641 –> 02:41:23,200
other medium on the same plane of

3362
02:41:23,200 –> 02:41:27,220
substance but there is a finer hearing

3363
02:41:27,220 –> 02:41:29,290
whose medium of transmission would seem

3364
02:41:29,290 –> 02:41:32,260
to be the ether perhaps not that ether

3365
02:41:32,260 –> 02:41:34,690
which carries light heat and magnetic

3366
02:41:34,690 –> 02:41:37,690
waves but it may be the far finer ether

3367
02:41:37,690 –> 02:41:40,021
through which the power of gravity works

3368
02:41:40,021 –> 02:41:42,760
for while light or heat or magnetic

3369
02:41:42,760 –> 02:41:44,891
waves traveling from the Sun to the

3370
02:41:44,891 –> 02:41:46,930
earth take eight minutes for the journey

3371
02:41:46,930 –> 02:41:49,480
it is mathematically certain that the

3372
02:41:49,480 –> 02:41:51,430
pole of gravitation does not take as

3373
02:41:51,430 –> 02:41:53,920
much as eight seconds or even the eighth

3374
02:41:53,920 –> 02:41:56,860
of a second the pull of gravitation

3375
02:41:56,860 –> 02:41:59,200
travels it would seem as quick as

3376
02:41:59,200 –> 02:42:01,870
thought so it may well be that in

3377
02:42:01,870 –> 02:42:04,690
thought transference or telepathy the

3378
02:42:04,690 –> 02:42:07,330
thoughts travel by the same way carried

3379
02:42:07,330 –> 02:42:10,811
by the same thought Swift medium the

3380
02:42:10,811 –> 02:42:12,970
transfer of a word by telepathy is the

3381
02:42:12,970 –> 02:42:15,190
simplest and earliest form of the divine

3382
02:42:15,190 –> 02:42:17,891
hearing of the spiritual man as that

3383
02:42:17,891 –> 02:42:20,410
power grows and as through perfectly

3384
02:42:20,410 –> 02:42:22,930
concentrated meditation the spiritual

3385
02:42:22,930 –> 02:42:24,880
man comes into more complete mastery of

3386
02:42:24,880 –> 02:42:27,580
it he grows able to hear and clearly

3387
02:42:27,580 –> 02:42:29,050
distinguish the speech of the great

3388
02:42:29,050 –> 02:42:31,690
companions who counsel and comfort him

3389
02:42:31,690 –> 02:42:34,900
on his way they may seek to him either

3390
02:42:34,900 –> 02:42:37,420
in wordless thoughts or in perfectly

3391
02:42:37,420 –> 02:42:45,460
definite words and sentences Sutra 42 by

3392
02:42:45,460 –> 02:42:47,920
perfectly concentrated meditation on the

3393
02:42:47,920 –> 02:42:49,811
correlation of the body with the ether

3394
02:42:49,811 –> 02:42:52,480
and by thinking of it as light as

3395
02:42:52,480 –> 02:42:54,580
thistledown will come the power to

3396
02:42:54,580 –> 02:42:58,900
traverse the ether it has been said that

3397
02:42:58,900 –> 02:43:00,400
he who would tread the path of power

3398
02:43:00,400 –> 02:43:02,851
must look for a home in the air and

3399
02:43:02,851 –> 02:43:06,460
afterwards and ether this would seem to

3400
02:43:06,460 –> 02:43:08,980
mean besides the constant injunction to

3401
02:43:08,980 –> 02:43:11,500
detachment that he must be prepared to

3402
02:43:11,500 –> 02:43:14,141
inhabit first a psychic and then in a

3403
02:43:14,141 –> 02:43:16,690
stearic body the former being the body

3404
02:43:16,690 –> 02:43:17,710
of dreams

3405
02:43:17,710 –> 02:43:19,779
the latter the body of the spiritual man

3406
02:43:19,779 –> 02:43:22,090
when he wakes up on the other side of

3407
02:43:22,090 –> 02:43:25,239
dreamland the gradual accustoming of the

3408
02:43:25,239 –> 02:43:27,279
consciousness to its new etheric vesture

3409
02:43:27,279 –> 02:43:30,100
its gradual acclimatization so to speak

3410
02:43:30,100 –> 02:43:32,170
and the etheric body of the spiritual

3411
02:43:32,170 –> 02:43:34,300
man is what our text seems to

3412
02:43:34,300 –> 02:43:41,380
contemplate Sutra 43 when that condition

3413
02:43:41,380 –> 02:43:43,510
of consciousness is reached which is

3414
02:43:43,510 –> 02:43:45,640
far-reaching and not confined to the

3415
02:43:45,640 –> 02:43:48,370
body which is outside the body and not

3416
02:43:48,370 –> 02:43:49,390
conditioned by it

3417
02:43:49,390 –> 02:43:51,609
then the veil which conceals the light

3418
02:43:51,609 –> 02:43:57,970
is worn away perhaps the best comment on

3419
02:43:57,970 –> 02:44:00,660
this is afforded by the words of Paul I

3420
02:44:00,660 –> 02:44:03,250
knew a man in Christ above fourteen

3421
02:44:03,250 –> 02:44:05,949
years ago whether in the body I cannot

3422
02:44:05,949 –> 02:44:08,590
tell or whether out of the body I cannot

3423
02:44:08,590 –> 02:44:12,729
tell God knoweth such a one caught up to

3424
02:44:12,729 –> 02:44:15,270
the third heaven and I knew such a man

3425
02:44:15,270 –> 02:44:18,279
whether in the body or out of the body I

3426
02:44:18,279 –> 02:44:21,910
cannot tell God knoweth how that he was

3427
02:44:21,910 –> 02:44:23,529
caught up into paradise and heard

3428
02:44:23,529 –> 02:44:27,370
unspeakable or unspoken words which it

3429
02:44:27,370 –> 02:44:31,720
is not lawful for a man to utter the

3430
02:44:31,720 –> 02:44:33,790
condition is briefly that of the

3431
02:44:33,790 –> 02:44:36,069
awakened spiritual man who sees and

3432
02:44:36,069 –> 02:44:43,479
hears beyond the veil Sutra 44 mastery

3433
02:44:43,479 –> 02:44:45,250
of the elements comes from perfectly

3434
02:44:45,250 –> 02:44:47,020
concentrated meditation on their five

3435
02:44:47,020 –> 02:44:50,170
forms the growth the elemental the

3436
02:44:50,170 –> 02:44:53,859
subtle the inherent the propulsive these

3437
02:44:53,859 –> 02:44:55,479
five forms are analogous to those

3438
02:44:55,479 –> 02:44:57,939
recognized by modern physics solid

3439
02:44:57,939 –> 02:45:02,380
liquid gaseous radiant and ionic when

3440
02:45:02,380 –> 02:45:03,939
the piercing vision of the awakened

3441
02:45:03,939 –> 02:45:05,890
spiritual man is directed to the forms

3442
02:45:05,890 –> 02:45:08,260
of matter from within as it were from

3443
02:45:08,260 –> 02:45:10,810
behind the scenes than perfect mastery

3444
02:45:10,810 –> 02:45:12,930
over the beggarly elements is attained

3445
02:45:12,930 –> 02:45:15,460
this is perhaps equivalent to the

3446
02:45:15,460 –> 02:45:18,790
injunction inquire of the earth the air

3447
02:45:18,790 –> 02:45:21,370
and the water of the secrets they hold

3448
02:45:21,370 –> 02:45:23,739
for you the development of your inner

3449
02:45:23,739 –> 02:45:29,229
senses will enable you to do this Sutra

3450
02:45:29,229 –> 02:45:30,329
45

3451
02:45:30,329 –> 02:45:33,189
thereupon will come the manifestation of

3452
02:45:33,189 –> 02:45:35,649
the atomic and other powers which are

3453
02:45:35,649 –> 02:45:37,930
the endowment of the body together with

3454
02:45:37,930 –> 02:45:42,850
its unassailable force the body in

3455
02:45:42,850 –> 02:45:44,739
question is of course the etheric body

3456
02:45:44,739 –> 02:45:47,560
of the spiritual man he is said to

3457
02:45:47,560 –> 02:45:50,529
possess eight powers the atomic the

3458
02:45:50,529 –> 02:45:52,539
power of assimilating himself with the

3459
02:45:52,539 –> 02:45:54,390
nature of the atom which will perhaps

3460
02:45:54,390 –> 02:45:56,350
involve the power to disintegrate

3461
02:45:56,350 –> 02:45:59,609
material forms the power of levitation

3462
02:45:59,609 –> 02:46:03,130
the power of limitless extension the

3463
02:46:03,130 –> 02:46:05,319
power of boundless reach so that as the

3464
02:46:05,319 –> 02:46:07,689
commentator says he can touch the moon

3465
02:46:07,689 –> 02:46:10,689
with the tip of his finger the power to

3466
02:46:10,689 –> 02:46:12,670
accomplish his will the power of

3467
02:46:12,670 –> 02:46:15,189
gravitation the correlative of

3468
02:46:15,189 –> 02:46:18,430
levitation the power of command the

3469

02:46:21,130 –> 02:46:23,920
endowments of the spiritual man further

3471
02:46:23,920 –> 02:46:27,550
the spiritual body is unassailable fire

3472
02:46:27,550 –> 02:46:31,119
burns it not water wets it not the sword

3473
02:46:31,119 –> 02:46:33,699
Cleaves it not dry winds parch it not

3474
02:46:33,699 –> 02:46:36,670
and it is said the spiritual man can

3475
02:46:36,670 –> 02:46:38,289
impart something of this quality and

3476
02:46:38,289 –> 02:46:45,720
temper to his bodily vesture Sutra 46

that body the spiritual man is shapely

saith the son of God who hath his eyes

3483
02:47:05,409 –> 02:47:07,630

are like fine brass he that overcometh

will I give power over Nations and he

3487
02:47:16,300 –> 02:47:18,939
shall rule them with a rod of iron and I

3488
02:47:18,939 –> 02:47:25,470
will give him the morning star Sutra 47

3489
02:47:25,470 –> 02:47:27,609
mastery over the powers of perception

3490
02:47:27,609 –> 02:47:29,649
and action come through perfectly

3491
02:47:29,649 –> 02:47:31,569
concentrated meditation on their

3492
02:47:31,569 –> 02:47:34,630
fivefold forms namely their power to

3493
02:47:34,630 –> 02:47:36,729
grasp their distinctive nature the

3494
02:47:36,729 –> 02:47:38,260
element of self-consciousness in them

3495
02:47:38,260 –> 02:47:42,620
their inherence and their propulsive

3496
02:47:42,620 –> 02:47:46,640
take for example site dispossesses first

3497
02:47:46,640 –> 02:47:49,930
the power to grasp apprehend perceive

3498
02:47:49,930 –> 02:47:52,939
second it has its distinctive form of

3499
02:47:52,939 –> 02:47:55,630
perception that is visual perception

3500
02:47:55,630 –> 02:47:58,040
third it always carries with its

3501
02:47:58,040 –> 02:48:00,320
operations self-consciousness the

3502
02:48:00,320 –> 02:48:04,280
thought I perceive fourth sight has the

3503
02:48:04,280 –> 02:48:06,080
power of extension through the whole

3504
02:48:06,080 –> 02:48:09,370
field of vision even to the utmost star

3505
02:48:09,370 –> 02:48:12,260
fifth it is used for the purposes of

3506
02:48:12,260 –> 02:48:15,430
this year so with the other senses

3507
02:48:15,430 –> 02:48:17,870
perfectly concentrated meditation on

3508
02:48:17,870 –> 02:48:20,510
each sense a viewing it from behind and

3509
02:48:20,510 –> 02:48:23,149
within as is possible for the spiritual

3510
02:48:23,149 –> 02:48:25,520
man brings a mastery of the scope and

3511
02:48:25,520 –> 02:48:28,100
true character of each fence and of the

3512
02:48:28,100 –> 02:48:31,930
world on which the report collectively

3513
02:48:33,311 –> 02:48:37,160
due to a 48 thence comes the power

3514
02:48:37,160 –> 02:48:39,380
swiftest Bosch independent of

3515
02:48:39,380 –> 02:48:43,510
instruments and the mastery over matter

3516
02:48:43,601 –> 02:48:46,420
we are further enumerated the endowments

3517
02:48:46,420 –> 02:48:49,271
of the spiritual man among these is a

3518
02:48:49,271 –> 02:48:51,641
power to traverse space with a swiftness

3519
02:48:51,641 –> 02:48:53,681
of thought that whatever place the

3520
02:48:53,681 –> 02:48:55,870
spiritual man thinks of – that he goes

3521
02:48:55,870 –> 02:48:59,980
and that place he already is thought now

3522
02:48:59,980 –> 02:49:02,740
has become his means of locomotion he is

3523
02:49:02,740 –> 02:49:04,840
therefore independent of instruments and

3524
02:49:04,840 –> 02:49:07,090
can bring his force to bear directly

3525
02:49:07,090 –> 02:49:14,021
wherever he will Sutra 49 when the

3526
02:49:14,021 –> 02:49:16,240
spiritual man is perfectly disentangled

3527
02:49:16,240 –> 02:49:18,340
from the psychic body he attains to

3528
02:49:18,340 –> 02:49:20,500
mastery over all things and to a

3529
02:49:20,500 –> 02:49:25,630
knowledge of all the spiritual man is in

3530
02:49:25,630 –> 02:49:28,360
meshed in the web of the emotions desire

3531
02:49:28,360 –> 02:49:31,960
fear ambition passion and impeded by the

3532
02:49:31,960 –> 02:49:33,700
mental forms of separateness and

3533
02:49:33,700 –> 02:49:36,370
materialism when these meshes are

3534
02:49:36,370 –> 02:49:38,650
sundered these obstacles completely

3535
02:49:38,650 –> 02:49:40,900
overcome then the spiritual man stands

3536
02:49:40,900 –> 02:49:43,630
forth in his own wide world strong

3537
02:49:43,630 –> 02:49:48,160
mighty wise he uses divine powers with a

3538
02:49:48,160 –> 02:49:50,710
divine scope and energy working together

3539
02:49:50,710 –> 02:49:54,280
with divine companions – such a one it

3540
02:49:54,280 –> 02:49:58,030
is said thou art now a disciple able to

3541
02:49:58,030 –> 02:50:01,931
stand able to hear able to see able to

3542
02:50:01,931 –> 02:50:04,450
speak thou hast conquered desire and a

3543
02:50:04,450 –> 02:50:06,971
change to self-knowledge thou hast seen

3544
02:50:06,971 –> 02:50:09,370
thy soul in its bloom and recognized it

3545
02:50:09,370 –> 02:50:16,210
and heard the voice of a silence Sutra

3546
02:50:16,210 –> 02:50:19,330
fifty by absence of all self-indulgence

3547
02:50:19,330 –> 02:50:21,641
at this point when the seeds of bondage

3548
02:50:21,641 –> 02:50:22,960
to sorrow are destroyed

3549
02:50:22,960 –> 02:50:27,730
pure spiritual being is attained the

3550
02:50:27,730 –> 02:50:29,410
seeking of indulgence for the personal

3551
02:50:29,410 –> 02:50:31,811
self whether through passion or ambition

3552
02:50:31,811 –> 02:50:35,080
Sosa seed a future sorrow for this

3553
02:50:35,080 –> 02:50:36,971
self-indulgence of the personality is a

3554
02:50:36,971 –> 02:50:39,761
double sinned against the real a sin

3555
02:50:39,761 –> 02:50:42,101
against the cleanness of life and a sin

3556
02:50:42,101 –> 02:50:43,990
against the universal being which

3557
02:50:43,990 –> 02:50:45,971
permits no exclusive particular good

3558
02:50:45,971 –> 02:50:48,311
since in the real all spiritual

3559
02:50:48,311 –> 02:50:51,340
possessions are held in common this

3560
02:50:51,340 –> 02:50:53,141
twofold sin brings its reacting

3561
02:50:53,141 –> 02:50:55,360
punishment its confining bondage to

3562
02:50:55,360 –> 02:50:57,160
sorrow but

3563
02:50:57,160 –> 02:50:58,690
ceasing from self-indulgence brings

3564
02:50:58,690 –> 02:51:04,780
purity liberation spiritual life Sutra

3565
02:51:04,780 –> 02:51:08,170
51 there should be complete overcoming

3566
02:51:08,170 –> 02:51:11,200
of allurement or pride into invitations

3567
02:51:11,200 –> 02:51:13,240
of the different realms of life left

3568
02:51:13,240 –> 02:51:15,490
attachments to things evil arise once

3569
02:51:15,490 –> 02:51:19,811
more the commentator tells us the

3570
02:51:19,811 –> 02:51:22,930
disciples seekers for union are of four

3571
02:51:22,930 –> 02:51:26,410
degrees first those who are entering the

3572
02:51:26,410 –> 02:51:29,351
path second those who are in the realm

3573
02:51:29,351 –> 02:51:32,351
of allurement third those who have won

3574
02:51:32,351 –> 02:51:34,141
the victory over matter and the senses

3575
02:51:34,141 –> 02:51:36,700
fourth those who stand firm in pure

3576
02:51:36,700 –> 02:51:40,570
spiritual life to the second especially

3577
02:51:40,570 –> 02:51:42,391
the caution and the text is addressed

3578
02:51:42,391 –> 02:51:44,830
more modern teachers would express the

3579
02:51:44,830 –> 02:51:46,601
same truth by a warning against the

3580
02:51:46,601 –> 02:51:49,000
delusions and fascinations of a psychic

3581
02:51:49,000 –> 02:51:51,190
realm which open around the disciple as

3582
02:51:51,190 –> 02:51:53,311
he breakthrough into the unseen worlds

3583
02:51:53,311 –> 02:51:56,130
these are the dangers of the ante room

3584
02:51:56,130 –> 02:51:59,230
safety lies in passing on swiftly into

3585
02:51:59,230 –> 02:52:02,170
the inner chamber him that overcometh

3586
02:52:02,170 –> 02:52:04,570
will i make a pillar in the temple of my

3587
02:52:04,570 –> 02:52:11,460
god and he shall go no more out sutra 52

3588
02:52:11,460 –> 02:52:14,141
from perfectly concentrated meditation

3589
02:52:14,141 –> 02:52:16,180
on the divisions of time and their

3590
02:52:16,180 –> 02:52:18,010
succession comes that wisdom which is

3591
02:52:18,010 –> 02:52:22,601
born of discernment the Upanishads say

3592
02:52:22,601 –> 02:52:24,550
of the liberated that he has passed

3593
02:52:24,550 –> 02:52:27,370
beyond the triad of time he no longer

3594
02:52:27,370 –> 02:52:30,010
sees life is projected into past present

3595
02:52:30,010 –> 02:52:32,260
and future since these are forms of the

3596
02:52:32,260 –> 02:52:35,260
mind but behold all things spread out in

3597
02:52:35,260 –> 02:52:38,260
the quiet light of the eternal this

3598
02:52:38,260 –> 02:52:40,330
would seem to be the same thought and to

3599
02:52:40,330 –> 02:52:42,101
point to that clear-eyed spiritual

3600
02:52:42,101 –> 02:52:44,590
perception which is above time that

3601
02:52:44,590 –> 02:52:46,780
wisdom born of the unveiling of times

3602
02:52:46,780 –> 02:52:49,420
delusion then shall the disciple live

3603
02:52:49,420 –> 02:52:51,450
neither in the present nor the future

3604
02:52:51,450 –> 02:52:59,170
but in the eternal Sutra 53 hence comes

3605
02:52:59,170 –> 02:53:01,090
discernment between things which are of

3606
02:53:01,090 –> 02:53:03,130
like nature not distinguished by

3607
02:53:03,130 –> 02:53:07,440
difference of kind character or position

3608
02:53:07,440 –> 02:53:10,601
here as also in the preceding Sutra we

3609
02:53:10,601 –> 02:53:10,870
are

3610
02:53:10,870 –> 02:53:12,610
us to the doctrine the distinctions of

3611
02:53:12,610 –> 02:53:15,370
order time and space are creations of

3612
02:53:15,370 –> 02:53:17,800
the mind the threefold prism through

3613
02:53:17,800 –> 02:53:19,540
which the real object appears to us

3614
02:53:19,540 –> 02:53:22,870
distorted and refracted when the prism

3615
02:53:22,870 –> 02:53:25,090
is withdrawn the object returns to its

3616
02:53:25,090 –> 02:53:27,580
primal unity no longer distinguishable

3617
02:53:27,580 –> 02:53:30,220
by the mind yet clearly knowable by that

3618
02:53:30,220 –> 02:53:32,230
high power of spiritual discernment of

3619
02:53:32,230 –> 02:53:36,900
illumination which is above the mind

3620
02:53:37,200 –> 02:53:41,500
Sutra 54 the wisdom which is born of

3621
02:53:41,500 –> 02:53:44,260
discernment is starlike it discerns all

3622
02:53:44,260 –> 02:53:47,320
things and all conditions of things it

3623
02:53:47,320 –> 02:53:49,410
discerns without succession

3624
02:53:49,410 –> 02:53:53,250
simultaneously that wisdom that

3625
02:53:53,250 –> 02:53:56,080
intuitive divining power is starlike

3626
02:53:56,080 –> 02:53:58,360
says the commentator because it shines

3627
02:53:58,360 –> 02:54:00,670
with its own light because it rises on

3628
02:54:00,670 –> 02:54:03,970
high and illumines all things not is hid

3629
02:54:03,970 –> 02:54:06,311
from it whether thinks past things

3630
02:54:06,311 –> 02:54:08,920
present or things to come for it is

3631
02:54:08,920 –> 02:54:11,140
beyond the threefold form of time so

3632
02:54:11,140 –> 02:54:12,370
that all things are spread before

3633
02:54:12,370 –> 02:54:14,110
together in the single light of the

3634
02:54:14,110 –> 02:54:17,530
divine this power has been beautifully

3635
02:54:17,530 –> 02:54:20,380
described by Columba son there are

3636
02:54:20,380 –> 02:54:23,680
though very few to whom divine grace has

3637
02:54:23,680 –> 02:54:26,140
granted this that they can clearly and

3638
02:54:26,140 –> 02:54:28,900
most distinctly see at one and the same

3639
02:54:28,900 –> 02:54:31,030
moment as though under one ray of the

3640
02:54:31,030 –> 02:54:33,490
Sun even the entire circuit of a whole

3641
02:54:33,490 –> 02:54:35,950
world with its surroundings of ocean and

3642
02:54:35,950 –> 02:54:38,620
sky the inmost part of their mind being

3643
02:54:38,620 –> 02:54:45,550
marvelously enlarged Sutra 55 when the

3644
02:54:45,550 –> 02:54:47,590
vesture and the spiritual man are alike

3645
02:54:47,590 –> 02:54:50,260
pure then perfect spiritual life is

3646
02:54:50,260 –> 02:54:54,130
attained the vesture says the

3647
02:54:54,130 –> 02:54:56,740
commentator must first be washed pure of

3648
02:54:56,740 –> 02:54:59,200
all stains of passion and darkness and

3649
02:54:59,200 –> 02:55:01,480

3670
02:56:08,420 –> 02:56:10,340
of the sutras has fairly completed the

3671
02:56:10,340 –> 02:56:11,900
history of the birth and growth of the

3672
02:56:11,900 –> 02:56:14,030
spiritual man and the enumeration of his

3673
02:56:14,030 –> 02:56:16,790
powers at least so far as concerns that

3674
02:56:16,790 –> 02:56:19,160
first epoch and his immortal life which

3675
02:56:19,160 –> 02:56:21,470
immediately succeeds and supersedes the

3676
02:56:21,470 –> 02:56:24,440
life of the natural man in the fourth

3677
02:56:24,440 –> 02:56:26,120
book we are to consider what one might

3678
02:56:26,120 –> 02:56:28,580
call the mechanism of salvation the

3679
02:56:28,580 –> 02:56:30,650
ideally simple working of cosmic law

3680
02:56:30,650 –> 02:56:32,750
which brings the spiritual man to birth

3681
02:56:32,750 –> 02:56:34,790
growth and fullness of power and

3682
02:56:34,790 –> 02:56:37,310
prepares him for the splendid toilsome

3683
02:56:37,310 –> 02:56:39,880
further stages of his great journey home

3684
02:56:39,880 –> 02:56:42,920
the sutras are here brief to obscurity

3685
02:56:42,920 –> 02:56:45,860
only a few words for example are given

3686
02:56:45,860 –> 02:56:48,170
to the great triune mystery and illusion

3687
02:56:48,170 –> 02:56:50,600
of time a phrase or two indicates the

3688
02:56:50,600 –> 02:56:53,750
sweep of some universal law yet it is

3689
02:56:53,750 –> 02:56:56,120
hoped that by keeping our eyes fixed on

3690
02:56:56,120 –> 02:56:58,310
the spiritual man remembering that he is

3691
02:56:58,310 –> 02:57:00,530
the hero of the story and that all that

3692
02:57:00,530 –> 02:57:02,210
is written concerns him and his

3693
02:57:02,210 –> 02:57:04,430
adventures we may be able to find our

3694
02:57:04,430 –> 02:57:05,540
way through this thicket

3695
02:57:05,540 –> 02:57:08,060
of tangled words and keep in our hands

3696
02:57:08,060 –> 02:57:11,570
the clue to the mystery the last part of

3697
02:57:11,570 –> 02:57:12,980
the last book needs little introduction

3698
02:57:12,980 –> 02:57:16,130
in a sense it is the most important part

3699
02:57:16,130 –> 02:57:18,620
of the whole treatise since it unmasks

3700
02:57:18,620 –> 02:57:20,600
the nature of the personality that

3701
02:57:20,600 –> 02:57:22,970
psychical mind which is a wakeful enemy

3702
02:57:22,970 –> 02:57:25,520
of all who seek to tread the path even

3703
02:57:25,520 –> 02:57:27,920
now we can hear it whispering the doubt

3704
02:57:27,920 –> 02:57:30,800
whether that can be a good past which

3705
02:57:30,800 –> 02:57:34,520
thus sets mind at defiance if this then

3706
02:57:34,520 –> 02:57:36,350
be the most vital and fundamental part

3707
02:57:36,350 –> 02:57:37,500
of the teaching

3708
02:57:37,500 –> 02:57:38,460
should it not stand at the very

3709
02:57:38,460 –> 02:57:41,370
beginning it may seem so at first but

3710
02:57:41,370 –> 02:57:43,710
had it stood there we should not have

3711
02:57:43,710 –> 02:57:46,200
comprehended it for he who would know

3712
02:57:46,200 –> 02:57:49,050
the doctrine must be the life doing the

02:59:50,711 –> 02:59:53,141
shore but has not gained the further

3751
02:59:53,141 –> 02:59:55,660
verge of the river he is borne along by

3752
02:59:55,660 –> 02:59:57,910
the stream with no foothold on either

3753
02:59:57,910 –> 03:00:01,391
Shore leaving the actual he has fallen

3754
03:00:01,391 –> 03:00:04,120
short of the real caught in the limbo of

3755
03:00:04,120 –> 03:00:07,450
vanities and divisions the cause of this

3756
03:00:07,450 –> 03:00:10,150
aberrant phantasm is always the worship

3757
03:00:10,150 –> 03:00:13,471

3758
03:00:13,471 –> 03:00:17,650

same drugs in their action they are

3771
03:00:55,100 –> 03:00:57,470
baneful cutting the man off from

03:00:57,470 –> 03:00:58,850
consciousness of the restraining power

3773
03:00:58,850 –> 03:01:01,310
of his divine nature so that his forces

3774
03:01:01,310 –> 03:01:03,830
break forth exuberant like the laughter

3775
03:01:03,830 –> 03:01:05,990
of drunkards and he sees and hears

3776
03:01:05,990 –> 03:01:09,500
things delusive while sinking he

3777
03:01:09,500 –> 03:01:11,330
believes that he has risen growing

3778
03:01:11,330 –> 03:01:13,700
weaker he thinks himself full of

3779
03:01:13,700 –> 03:01:17,030
strength beholding illusions he takes

3780
03:01:17,030 –> 03:01:19,820
them to be true such are the powers

3781
03:01:19,820 –> 03:01:23,630
gained by drugs their holy psychic since

3782
03:01:23,630 –> 03:01:26,420
the real powers the spiritual can never

3783
03:01:26,420 –> 03:01:30,350
be so gained incantations are

3784
03:01:30,350 –> 03:01:32,360
affirmations of half truths concerning

3785
03:01:32,360 –> 03:01:34,820
spirit and matter what is and what is

3786
03:01:34,820 –> 03:01:37,340
not which work upon the mind and slowly

3787
03:01:37,340 –> 03:01:39,860
build up a race of powers and is elusive

3788
03:01:39,860 –> 03:01:43,550
well-being these two are of the psychic

3789
03:01:43,550 –> 03:01:47,360
realm of dreams lastly there are the

3790
03:01:47,360 –> 03:01:49,640
true powers of the spiritual man built

3791
03:01:49,640 –> 03:01:52,610
up and realized in meditation through

3792
03:01:52,610 –> 03:01:55,190
reverent obedience to spiritual law to

3793
03:01:55,190 –> 03:01:56,870

divine realm Sutra to the transfer of

3795
03:02:04,070 –> 03:02:06,950
powers from one venture to another comes

3796
03:02:06,950 –> 03:02:08,720
through the flow of the natural creative

3797
03:02:08,720 –> 03:02:14,090
forces here if we can perceive it is the

3798
03:02:14,090 –> 03:02:16,340
whole secret of spiritual birth growth

3799
03:02:16,340 –> 03:02:20,300
and life spiritual being like all being

3800
03:02:20,300 –> 03:02:23,060
is but an expression of the self of the

3801
03:02:23,060 –> 03:02:26,229
inherent power and being avec ma

3802
03:02:26,229 –> 03:02:28,580
inherent in the self our consciousness

3803
03:02:28,580 –> 03:02:31,010
and will which have as their lordly

3804
03:02:31,010 –> 03:02:33,320
heritage the wide sweep of the universe

3805
03:02:33,320 –> 03:02:35,600
throughout eternity for the self is one

3806
03:02:35,600 –> 03:02:37,910
with the eternal and the consciousness

3807
03:02:37,910 –> 03:02:40,460
of the self may make itself manifest as

3808
03:02:40,460 –> 03:02:41,569
seeing he

3809
03:02:41,569 –> 03:02:44,659
during tasting feeling or whatsoever

3810
03:02:44,659 –> 03:02:47,629
perceptive powers there may be just as a

3811
03:02:47,629 –> 03:02:49,550
white sunlight may divide into many

3812
03:02:49,550 –> 03:02:53,329
colored rays so may the will of the self

3813
03:02:53,329 –> 03:02:55,609
manifest itself in the uttering of words

3814
03:02:55,609 –> 03:02:59,659
or in handling or in moving and whatever

3815
03:02:59,659 –> 03:03:01,579
powers of action there are throughout

3816
03:03:01,579 –> 03:03:05,209
the seven worlds where the self is there

3817
03:03:05,209 –> 03:03:08,449
will its powers be it is but a question

3818
03:03:08,449 –> 03:03:10,879
of the Wester through which these powers

3819
03:03:10,879 –> 03:03:13,310
shall shine forth and wherever the

3820
03:03:13,310 –> 03:03:14,810
consciousness and desire of the ever

3821
03:03:14,810 –> 03:03:17,029
creative self are fixed there will a

3822
03:03:17,029 –> 03:03:19,089
vesture be built up where the heart is

3823
03:03:19,089 –> 03:03:23,029
there will the treasure be also since

3824
03:03:23,029 –> 03:03:24,649
through the ages the desire of the self

3825
03:03:24,649 –> 03:03:26,439
has been toward the natural world

3826
03:03:26,439 –> 03:03:28,399
wherein the self sought to mirror

3827
03:03:28,399 –> 03:03:30,039
himself that he may know himself

3828
03:03:30,039 –> 03:03:32,359
therefore a vesture of natural elements

3829
03:03:32,359 –> 03:03:34,520
came into being through which blossomed

3830
03:03:34,520 –> 03:03:36,770
forth to self powers of perceiving and

3831
03:03:36,770 –> 03:03:39,409
of will the power to see to hear to

3832
03:03:39,409 –> 03:03:43,430
speak to walk to handle and when the

3833
03:03:43,430 –> 03:03:45,680
self thus come to self consciousness and

3834
03:03:45,680 –> 03:03:47,720
with it to a knowledge of his

3835
03:03:47,720 –> 03:03:49,879
imprisonment shall set his desire on the

3836
03:03:49,879 –> 03:03:51,859
divine and real world and raise his

3837
03:03:51,859 –> 03:03:53,989
consciousness there to the spiritual

3838
03:03:53,989 –> 03:03:55,729
vesture shalt be built up for him there

3839
03:03:55,729 –> 03:03:57,800
with its expression of his inherent

3840
03:03:57,800 –> 03:04:00,949
powers nor will migration there be

3841
03:04:00,949 –> 03:04:01,939
difficult for the self

3842
03:04:01,939 –> 03:04:04,459
since the divining is no strange or

3843
03:04:04,459 –> 03:04:06,829
foreign land for him but the house of

3844
03:04:06,829 –> 03:04:09,199
his home where he dwells from

3845
03:04:09,199 –> 03:04:16,430
everlasting suture 3 the apparent

3846
03:04:16,430 –> 03:04:19,069
immediate cause is not the true cause of

3847
03:04:19,069 –> 03:04:22,129
the creative nature powers but like the

3848
03:04:22,129 –> 03:04:23,869
husbandmen in his field it takes

3849
03:04:23,869 –> 03:04:28,909
obstacles away the husbandmen kills his

3850
03:04:28,909 –> 03:04:31,129
field breaking up the claws of earth

3851
03:04:31,129 –> 03:04:33,949
into fine mold penetrable to air and

3852
03:04:33,949 –> 03:04:37,279
rain he sews his seed carefully covering

3853
03:04:37,279 –> 03:04:40,189
it for fear of birds and the wind he

3854
03:04:40,189 –> 03:04:42,770
waters the seed Laden earth turning the

3855
03:04:42,770 –> 03:04:44,300
little rills from the irrigation tank

3856
03:04:44,300 –> 03:04:46,609
now this way and that removing obstacles

3857
03:04:46,609 –> 03:04:49,459
from the channels until the even how of

3858
03:04:49,459 –> 03:04:53,600
water vitalizes the whole field and so

3859
03:04:53,600 –> 03:04:54,479
the plan

3860
03:04:54,479 –> 03:04:56,789
Germany’s and grow first the blade then

3861
03:04:56,789 –> 03:05:00,439
the ear then the full corn in the air

3862
03:05:00,439 –> 03:05:03,569
but it is not the husbandman who makes

3863
03:05:03,569 –> 03:05:07,079
them grow it is first the miraculous

3864
03:05:07,079 –> 03:05:09,329
plasmic power in the green of seed which

3865
03:05:09,329 –> 03:05:13,289
brings forth after its kind then the

3866
03:05:13,289 –> 03:05:15,239
alchemy of sunlight which in the

3867
03:05:15,239 –> 03:05:17,039
presence of the green coloring matter of

3868
03:05:17,039 –> 03:05:18,960
the leaves gathers hydrogen from the

3869
03:05:18,960 –> 03:05:21,060
water and carbon from the gases in the

3870
03:05:21,060 –> 03:05:24,060
air and mingles them in the hydrocarbons

3871
03:05:24,060 –> 03:05:27,270
of plant growth and finally the holy

3872
03:05:27,270 –> 03:05:29,329
occult vital powers of the plant itself

3873
03:05:29,329 –> 03:05:32,039
stirred up through ages and flowing down

3874
03:05:32,039 –> 03:05:35,159
from the primal forces of life the

3875
03:05:35,159 –> 03:05:38,699
husbandman but removes the obstacles he

3876
03:05:38,699 –> 03:05:42,029
plants and waters but God gives the

3877
03:05:42,029 –> 03:05:45,930
increase so with a finer husbandman of

3878
03:05:45,930 –> 03:05:49,859
diviner fields he kills and sews but the

3879
03:05:49,859 –> 03:05:52,109
growth of a spiritual man comes through

3880
03:05:52,109 –> 03:05:54,479
the surge and flow of divine creative

3881
03:05:54,479 –> 03:05:58,739
forces and powers here again God gives

3882
03:05:58,739 –> 03:06:01,739
the increase the divine self puts forth

3883
03:06:01,739 –> 03:06:03,989
for the manifestation of its powers a

3884
03:06:03,989 –> 03:06:07,619
new and finer Wester the body of the

3885
03:06:07,619 –> 03:06:14,640
spiritual man Sutra for Bester’s of

3886
03:06:14,640 –> 03:06:17,130
consciousness are built up in conformity

3887
03:06:17,130 –> 03:06:21,479
with the feeling of selfhood the self

3888
03:06:21,479 –> 03:06:24,689
says a great teacher in turn attaches

3889
03:06:24,689 –> 03:06:27,869
itself to three vectors first to the

3890
03:06:27,869 –> 03:06:30,770
physical body then to the finer body and

3891
03:06:30,770 –> 03:06:34,739
thirdly to the causal body finally it

3892
03:06:34,739 –> 03:06:37,649
stands forth radiant luminous joyous as

3893
03:06:37,649 –> 03:06:41,579
the self when the self attributes itself

3894
03:06:41,579 –> 03:06:44,369
to the physical body there arises the

3895
03:06:44,369 –> 03:06:46,739
states of bodily consciousness built up

3896
03:06:46,739 –> 03:06:49,699
about the physical self when the self

3897
03:06:49,699 –> 03:06:51,840
breaking through this first delusion

3898
03:06:51,840 –> 03:06:54,239
begins to see and feel itself in the

3899
03:06:54,239 –> 03:06:57,869
Heiner body to find self hood there then

3900
03:06:57,869 –> 03:06:59,340
the states of consciousness of the finer

3901
03:06:59,340 –> 03:07:02,699
body come into being or to speak exactly

3902
03:07:02,699 –> 03:07:05,010
the finer body and it states of

3903
03:07:05,010 –> 03:07:06,410
consciousness arise

3904
03:07:06,410 –> 03:07:10,070
and grow together but the self must not

3905
03:07:10,070 –> 03:07:12,260
dwell permanently there they must learn

3906
03:07:12,260 –> 03:07:15,080
to find itself in the causal body to

3907
03:07:15,080 –> 03:07:17,330
build up the wide and luminous fields of

3908
03:07:17,330 –> 03:07:20,930
consciousness sip along to that nor much

3909
03:07:20,930 –> 03:07:23,330
to dwell forever there for there remains

3910
03:07:23,330 –> 03:07:26,450
the fourth state the divine with its own

3911
03:07:26,450 –> 03:07:30,320
splendor and everlasting this it is all

3912
03:07:30,320 –> 03:07:31,370
a question of the states of

3913
03:07:31,370 –> 03:07:33,770
consciousness all a question of raising

3914
03:07:33,770 –> 03:07:35,899
the sense of selfhood until it dwells

3915
03:07:35,899 –> 03:07:45,260
forever in the eternal Sutra v in the

3916
03:07:45,260 –> 03:07:47,390
different fields of manifestation the

3917
03:07:47,390 –> 03:07:50,750
consciousness though one is the elective

3918
03:07:50,750 –> 03:07:54,100
cause of many states of consciousness

3919
03:07:54,610 –> 03:07:57,260
here is the splendid teaching of oneness

3920
03:07:57,260 –> 03:07:59,210
that lies at the heart of the eastern

3921
03:07:59,210 –> 03:08:02,410
wisdom consciousness is ultimately one

3922
03:08:02,410 –> 03:08:06,470
everywhere and forever the eternal the

3923
03:08:06,470 –> 03:08:09,550
father is the one self of all beings and

3924
03:08:09,550 –> 03:08:12,830
so in each individual who is but a facet

3925
03:08:12,830 –> 03:08:15,370
of that self consciousness is one

3926
03:08:15,370 –> 03:08:17,990
whether it breaks through as a dull fire

3927
03:08:17,990 –> 03:08:21,950
a physical life or the murky flame of

3928
03:08:21,950 –> 03:08:24,410
the psychic and passional or the

3929
03:08:24,410 –> 03:08:27,020
radiance of the spiritual man or the

3930
03:08:27,020 –> 03:08:29,840
full glory of the divine it is ever the

3931
03:08:29,840 –> 03:08:33,260
light not but the life the one

3932
03:08:33,260 –> 03:08:35,090
consciousness is the effective cause of

3933
03:08:35,090 –> 03:08:37,340
all states of consciousness on every

3934
03:08:37,340 –> 03:08:45,590
plane statistics among states of

3935
03:08:45,590 –> 03:08:47,600
consciousness that which is born of

3936
03:08:47,600 –> 03:08:50,420
consultation is free from the seed of

3937
03:08:50,420 –> 03:08:54,710
future sorrow where the consciousness

3938
03:08:54,710 –> 03:08:57,140
breaks forth in the physical body and

3939
03:08:57,140 –> 03:09:00,410
the full play of bodily life begins its

3940
03:09:00,410 –> 03:09:02,420
progression carries with it inevitable

3941
03:09:02,420 –> 03:09:06,700
limitations birth involves death

3942
03:09:06,700 –> 03:09:10,610
meetings have their parting hunger

3943
03:09:10,610 –> 03:09:14,510
alternates with fascia tea age follows

3944
03:09:14,510 –> 03:09:17,350
on the heels of youth

3945
03:09:17,560 –> 03:09:19,060
go to the states of consciousness run

3946
03:09:19,060 –> 03:09:22,420
along the circle of birth and death with

3947
03:09:22,420 –> 03:09:23,920
the psychic the alternation between

3948
03:09:23,920 –> 03:09:27,760
prize and penalty is swifter hope has

3949
03:09:27,760 –> 03:09:31,319
its shadow of fear or it is no hope

3950
03:09:31,319 –> 03:09:34,949
exclusive love is tortured by jealousy

3951
03:09:34,949 –> 03:09:37,449
pleasure passes through deadness into

3952
03:09:37,449 –> 03:09:41,109
pain pain surcease brings pleasure back

3953
03:09:41,109 –> 03:09:44,739
again so here to the states of

3954
03:09:44,739 –> 03:09:47,409
consciousness are on their circle in all

3955
03:09:47,409 –> 03:09:49,229
psychic States there is egotism which

3956
03:09:49,229 –> 03:09:51,729
indeed is the very essence of the

3957
03:09:51,729 –> 03:09:54,760
psychic and where there is egotism there

3958
03:09:54,760 –> 03:09:57,790
is ever the seed of future sorrow desire

3959
03:09:57,790 –> 03:10:01,960
carries bondage in its moon but where

3960
03:10:01,960 –> 03:10:03,540
the pure spiritual consciousness begins

3961
03:10:03,540 –> 03:10:06,909
free from self and stain the ancient law

3962
03:10:06,909 –> 03:10:09,489
of retaliation ceases the penalty of

3963
03:10:09,489 –> 03:10:12,970
sorrow lapses and is no more imposed the

3964
03:10:12,970 –> 03:10:15,729
soul now passes no longer from sorrow –

3965
03:10:15,729 –> 03:10:19,270
sorrow but from glory to glory its

3966
03:10:19,270 –> 03:10:22,239
growth and splendor have no limit the

3967
03:10:22,239 –> 03:10:31,329
good passes to better best c-27 the

3968
03:10:31,329 –> 03:10:33,819
works of followers after union make

3969
03:10:33,819 –> 03:10:36,040
neither for bright pleasure nor for dark

3970
03:10:36,040 –> 03:10:39,250
pain the works of others make for

3971
03:10:39,250 –> 03:10:43,439
pleasure or pain or a mingling of these

3972
03:10:43,680 –> 03:10:46,479
the man of desire winds from his works

3973
03:10:46,479 –> 03:10:49,029
the reward of pleasure or incurs the

3974
03:10:49,029 –> 03:10:52,090
penalty of pain or as so often happens

3975
03:10:52,090 –> 03:10:55,239
in life his garden like the passionate

3976
03:10:55,239 –> 03:10:57,279
mood of the lover his part pleasure and

3977
03:10:57,279 –> 03:11:00,670
part pain works done with self-seeking

3978
03:11:00,670 –> 03:11:02,319
bear within them the seeds of future

3979
03:11:02,319 –> 03:11:03,479
sorrow

3980
03:11:03,479 –> 03:11:06,239
conversely according to the proverb

3981
03:11:06,239 –> 03:11:11,290
present pain is future gain but for him

3982
03:11:11,290 –> 03:11:13,689
who has gone beyond desire Clute desire

3983
03:11:13,689 –> 03:11:16,119
is set on the eternal neither pain to be

3984
03:11:16,119 –> 03:11:17,680
avoided nor pleasure to be gained

3985
03:11:17,680 –> 03:11:20,890
inspires his work he fears no hell and

3986
03:11:20,890 –> 03:11:24,729
desires no heaven his one desire is to

3987
03:11:24,729 –> 03:11:26,170
know the will of the Father and finish

3988
03:11:26,170 –> 03:11:28,840
his work he comes directly in line with

3989
03:11:28,840 –> 03:11:30,790
the divine will and work

3990
03:11:30,790 –> 03:11:33,400
clean me and immediately without longing

3991
03:11:33,400 –> 03:11:36,610
or fear his heart dwells in the eternal

3992
03:11:36,610 –> 03:11:41,190
all his desires are set on the eternal

3993
03:11:42,360 –> 03:11:45,940
suture eight from the force inherent in

3994
03:11:45,940 –> 03:11:47,950
works comes the manifestation of those

3995
03:11:47,950 –> 03:11:49,930
dynamic mind images which are

3996
03:11:49,930 –> 03:11:51,700
conformable to the ripening out of each

3997
03:11:51,700 –> 03:11:55,420
of these works we are now to consider

3998
03:11:55,420 –> 03:11:57,910
the general mechanism of karma in order

3999
03:11:57,910 –> 03:11:59,350
that we may pass on to the consideration

4000
03:11:59,350 –> 03:12:02,021
of him who is free from karma karma

4001
03:12:02,021 –> 03:12:04,420
indeed is a concern of the personal man

4002
03:12:04,420 –> 03:12:07,450
of his bondage or freedom it is a

4003
03:12:07,450 –> 03:12:09,400
succession of the forces which built up

4004
03:12:09,400 –> 03:12:11,560
the personal men reproducing themselves

4005
03:12:11,560 –> 03:12:15,940
in one personality after another now let

4006
03:12:15,940 –> 03:12:18,130
us take an imaginary case to see how

4007
03:12:18,130 –> 03:12:20,920
these forces may work out let us think

4008
03:12:20,920 –> 03:12:23,050
of a man with murderous intent in his

4009
03:12:23,050 –> 03:12:25,240
heart striking with a dagger at his

4010
03:12:25,240 –> 03:12:28,120
enemy he makes a red wound in his

4011
03:12:28,120 –> 03:12:31,180
victims breast at the same instant he

4012
03:12:31,180 –> 03:12:33,880
paints in his own mind a picture of that

4013
03:12:33,880 –> 03:12:36,550
wound a picture dynamic with all the

4014
03:12:36,550 –> 03:12:38,680
fierce willpower he has put into his

4015
03:12:38,680 –> 03:12:41,680
murderous blow in other words he has

4016
03:12:41,680 –> 03:12:43,720
made a deep wound in his own psychic

4017
03:12:43,720 –> 03:12:46,720
body and when he comes to be born again

4018
03:12:46,720 –> 03:12:48,550
that body will become his outermost

4019
03:12:48,550 –> 03:12:51,490
vestra upon which with its wound still

4020
03:12:51,490 –> 03:12:55,000
their bodily tissue will be built up so

4021
03:12:55,000 –> 03:12:57,460
the man will be born maimed or with the

4022
03:12:57,460 –> 03:13:00,010
predisposition to some mortal injury he

4023
03:13:00,010 –> 03:13:02,110
is unguarded at that point and any

4024
03:13:02,110 –> 03:13:04,570
trifling accidental blow will pierce the

4025
03:13:04,570 –> 03:13:07,330
broken joints of his psychic armor thus

4026
03:13:07,330 –> 03:13:09,850
to the dynamic mind images manifest

4027
03:13:09,850 –> 03:13:12,670
themselves coming to the surface so that

4028
03:13:12,670 –> 03:13:14,560
works done in the past to me ripen and

4029
03:13:14,560 –> 03:13:22,750
come to fruition suture 9 work separated

4030
03:13:22,750 –> 03:13:25,450
by different nature or place or time are

4031
03:13:25,450 –> 03:13:27,580
brought together by the correspondence

4032
03:13:27,580 –> 03:13:29,440
between memory and dynamic impressions

4033
03:13:29,440 –> 03:13:34,210
just as in the ripening out of mind

4034
03:13:34,210 –> 03:13:36,700
images into bodily conditions the effect

4035
03:13:36,700 –> 03:13:38,290
is brought about by the array of

4036
03:13:38,290 –> 03:13:40,500
creative force sent down by the self

4037
03:13:40,500 –> 03:13:42,670
somewhat as the life of the Magic

4038
03:13:42,670 –> 03:13:44,170
Lantern projects the details of a

4039
03:13:44,170 –> 03:13:44,710
picture

4040
03:13:44,710 –> 03:13:47,110
the screen revealing the hidden and

4041
03:13:47,110 –> 03:13:48,820
making secret things palpable and

4042
03:13:48,820 –> 03:13:51,670
visible so does this divine ray exorcise

4043
03:13:51,670 –> 03:13:53,560
a selective power of my dynamic mind

4044
03:13:53,560 –> 03:13:56,440
images bringing together into one day of

4045
03:13:56,440 –> 03:13:58,380
life the seeds gathered for many days

4046
03:13:58,380 –> 03:14:00,970
the memory constantly exemplifies this

4047
03:14:00,970 –> 03:14:03,790
power a passage of poetry will call up

4048
03:14:03,790 –> 03:14:06,090
in the mind like passages of many poets

4049
03:14:06,090 –> 03:14:10,060
read at different times so a prayer may

4050
03:14:10,060 –> 03:14:13,680
call up many prayers in like manner the

4051
03:14:13,680 –> 03:14:17,020
same overruling selective power which is

4052
03:14:17,020 –> 03:14:19,120
array of the higher self gathers

4053
03:14:19,120 –> 03:14:20,950
together from different births and times

4054
03:14:20,950 –> 03:14:23,470
and places those mind images which are

4055
03:14:23,470 –> 03:14:25,630
conformable and may be grouped in the

4056
03:14:25,630 –> 03:14:28,170
frame of a single life or a single event

4057
03:14:28,170 –> 03:14:30,850
through this grouping visible body

4058
03:14:30,850 –> 03:14:32,950
condition or outward circumstances are

4059
03:14:32,950 –> 03:14:35,260
brought about and by these the soul is

4060
03:14:35,260 –> 03:14:39,340
taught and chained just as the dynamic

4061
03:14:39,340 –> 03:14:41,710
mind images of desire ripen out in

4062
03:14:41,710 –> 03:14:44,500
bodily conditions and circumstances so

4063
03:14:44,500 –> 03:14:46,150
the far more dynamic powers of

4064
03:14:46,150 –> 03:14:48,370
aspiration wherein the soul reaches

4065
03:14:48,370 –> 03:14:50,440
toward the eternal have their fruition

4066
03:14:50,440 –> 03:14:53,020
in a finer world building the Wester of

4067
03:14:53,020 –> 03:14:58,960
a spiritual amount future 10 the series

4068
03:14:58,960 –> 03:15:01,150
of dynamic mind images is beginningless

4069
03:15:01,150 –> 03:15:05,680
because desire is everlasting the whole

4070
03:15:05,680 –> 03:15:08,200
series of dynamic mind images which make

4071
03:15:08,200 –> 03:15:09,910
up the entire history of the personal

4072
03:15:09,910 –> 03:15:12,610
man is a part of the mechanism which the

4073
03:15:12,610 –> 03:15:14,890
self employs to mirror itself in a

4074
03:15:14,890 –> 03:15:17,560
reflection to embody its powers in an

4075
03:15:17,560 –> 03:15:19,510
outward form to the end of self

4076
03:15:19,510 –> 03:15:21,510
expression self-realization

4077
03:15:21,510 –> 03:15:25,090
self-knowledge therefore the initial

4078
03:15:25,090 –> 03:15:27,280
impulse behind these dynamic mind images

4079
03:15:27,280 –> 03:15:29,530
comes from the self and is the

4080
03:15:29,530 –> 03:15:31,660
descending ray of the self so that

4081
03:15:31,660 –> 03:15:33,460
cannot be said that there is any first

4082
03:15:33,460 –> 03:15:35,050
member of the series of images from

4083
03:15:35,050 –> 03:15:37,660
which the rest of the impulse is

4084
03:15:37,660 –> 03:15:39,910
beginningless since it comes from the

4085
03:15:39,910 –> 03:15:43,600
self which is everlasting desire is not

4086
03:15:43,600 –> 03:15:46,479
to cease it is to turn to the eternal

4087
03:15:46,479 –> 03:15:50,610
and so become aspiration

4088
03:15:52,620 –> 03:15:56,460
eleven since the dynamic mind images are

4089
03:15:56,460 –> 03:15:59,311
held together by impulses of desire by

4090
03:15:59,311 –> 03:16:01,710
the wish for personal reward by the

4091
03:16:01,710 –> 03:16:04,230
substratum of mental habit by the

4092
03:16:04,230 –> 03:16:05,990
support of outer things desired

4093
03:16:05,990 –> 03:16:09,090
therefore when these cease the self

4094
03:16:09,090 –> 03:16:10,980
reproduction of dynamic mind images

4095
03:16:10,980 –> 03:16:15,510
ceases we are still concerned with the

4096
03:16:15,510 –> 03:16:17,880
personal life in its bodily Wester and

4097
03:16:17,880 –> 03:16:20,340
with the process whereby the forces

4098
03:16:20,340 –> 03:16:22,170
which have upheld it are gradually

4099
03:16:22,170 –> 03:16:23,820
transferred to the life of the spiritual

4100
03:16:23,820 –> 03:16:26,610
man and build up for him his finer

4101
03:16:26,610 –> 03:16:30,090
Wester in a finer world how is the

4102
03:16:30,090 –> 03:16:32,670
current to be changed how is the flow of

4103
03:16:32,670 –> 03:16:35,130
self reproductive mind images which have

4104
03:16:35,130 –> 03:16:36,930
built the conditions of life after life

4105
03:16:36,930 –> 03:16:38,930
in this world of bondage to be checked

4106
03:16:38,930 –> 03:16:41,550
at the time of imprisonment may come to

4107
03:16:41,550 –> 03:16:45,271
an end the day of liberation dawn the

4108
03:16:45,271 –> 03:16:46,920
answer is given in the Sutra just

4109
03:16:46,920 –> 03:16:49,110
translated the driving force is

4110
03:16:49,110 –> 03:16:50,760
withdrawn and directed to the up

4111
03:16:50,760 –> 03:16:53,970
building of the spiritual body when the

4112
03:16:53,970 –> 03:16:55,380
building impulses and forces are

03:16:55,380 –> 03:16:58,260
withdrawn the tendency to manifest a new

03:16:58,260 –> 03:17:00,750
psychical body a new body of bondage

4115
03:17:00,750 –> 03:17:09,450
ceases with them future 12 the

4116
03:17:09,450 –> 03:17:10,860
difference between that which is past

4117
03:17:10,860 –> 03:17:13,561
and that which is not yet come according

4118
03:17:13,561 –> 03:17:15,300
to their natures depends on the

4119
03:17:15,300 –> 03:17:18,830
difference of phase of their properties

4120
03:17:18,860 –> 03:17:21,390
here we come to a high and difficult

4121
03:17:21,390 –> 03:17:23,490
matter which has always been held to be

4122
03:17:23,490 –> 03:17:25,050
of great moment in the Eastern wisdom

4123
03:17:25,050 –> 03:17:27,240
the thoughts that the division of time

4124
03:17:27,240 –> 03:17:30,750
into past present and future is in great

4125
03:17:30,750 –> 03:17:33,870
measure and illusion that past present

4126
03:17:33,870 –> 03:17:36,900
future all dwell together in the eternal

4127
03:17:36,900 –> 03:17:40,980
now the discernment of this truth has

4128
03:17:40,980 –> 03:17:43,290
been held to be so necessarily a part of

4129
03:17:43,290 –> 03:17:45,480
wisdom but one of the names of the

4130
03:17:45,480 –> 03:17:48,480
enlightened is he who has passed beyond

4131
03:17:48,480 –> 03:17:52,760
the three times past present future

4132
03:17:52,760 –> 03:17:56,040
though the Western master said before

4133
03:17:56,040 –> 03:17:57,150
Abraham was I am

4134
03:17:57,150 –> 03:18:00,601
and again I am with you always unto the

4135
03:18:00,601 –> 03:18:02,851
end of the world using the eternal

4136
03:18:02,851 –> 03:18:05,400
present for past and future alike

4137
03:18:05,400 –> 03:18:07,771
with the same purpose the master speaks

4138
03:18:07,771 –> 03:18:10,140
of himself as the Alpha and the Omega

4139
03:18:10,140 –> 03:18:13,680
the beginning and the end the first and

4140
03:18:13,680 –> 03:18:16,771
the last and a master of our own days

4141
03:18:16,771 –> 03:18:19,950
writes I feel even irritated having to

4142
03:18:19,950 –> 03:18:22,830
use these three clumsy words past

4143
03:18:22,830 –> 03:18:26,280
present and future miserable concepts of

4144
03:18:26,280 –> 03:18:28,230
the objective phases of the subjective

4145
03:18:28,230 –> 03:18:30,870
whole they are about as ill adapted for

4146
03:18:30,870 –> 03:18:33,480
the purpose as an axe for fine carving

4147
03:18:33,480 –> 03:18:37,830
in the eternal now both past and future

4149
03:18:42,210 –> 03:18:44,370
philosopher has well stated the same

4150
03:18:44,370 –> 03:18:47,880
truth neither past nor future can exist

4151
03:18:47,880 –> 03:18:49,470

of substance into the empty space of

the external manifestation of an object

takes place when the transformations are

4188
03:20:32,940 –> 03:20:36,811
in the same phase we should be inclined

4189
03:20:36,811 –> 03:20:38,640
to express the same law by saying for

4190
03:20:38,640 –> 03:20:41,130
example that a sound is audible when it

4191
03:20:41,130 –> 03:20:42,390
consists of vibrations within the

4192
03:20:42,390 –> 03:20:44,521
compass of the auditory nerve that an

4193
03:20:44,521 –> 03:20:46,470
object is visible when either directly

4194
03:20:46,470 –> 03:20:48,120
or by reflection it sends force

4195
03:20:48,120 –> 03:20:50,311
luminiferous vibrations within the

4196
03:20:50,311 –> 03:20:51,510
compass of the retina and the optic

4197
03:20:51,510 –> 03:20:54,660
nerve vibrations below or above that

4198
03:20:54,660 –> 03:20:56,370
compass make no impression at all and

4199
03:20:56,370 –> 03:20:59,250
the object remains invisible as for

4200
03:20:59,250 –> 03:21:01,680
example a kettle of boiling water in a

4201
03:21:01,680 –> 03:21:03,660
dark room though the kettle is sending

4202
03:21:03,660 –> 03:21:05,521
forth heat vibrations closely akin to

4203
03:21:05,521 –> 03:21:08,880
light so when the vibrations of the

4204
03:21:08,880 –> 03:21:10,680
object and those of the perceptive power

4205
03:21:10,680 –> 03:21:12,960
are in the same phase the external

4206
03:21:12,960 –> 03:21:15,440
manifestation of the object takes place

4207
03:21:15,440 –> 03:21:18,000
there seems to be a further suggestion

4208
03:21:18,000 –> 03:21:20,280
that the appearance of an object in the

4209
03:21:20,280 –> 03:21:23,160
presence or its remaining hid in the

4210
03:21:23,160 –> 03:21:26,010
past or future is likewise a question of

4211
03:21:26,010 –> 03:21:28,140
phase and just as the range of

4212
03:21:28,140 –> 03:21:30,360
vibrations perceived might be increased

4213
03:21:30,360 –> 03:21:33,000
by the development to finer senses so

4214
03:21:33,000 –> 03:21:35,311
the perception of things past and things

4215
03:21:35,311 –> 03:21:37,860
to come may be easy from a higher point

4216
03:21:37,860 –> 03:21:44,340
of view Sutra 15 the paths of material

4217
03:21:44,340 –> 03:21:45,930
things and of states of consciousness

4218
03:21:45,930 –> 03:21:48,780
are distinct as is manifest from the

4219
03:21:48,780 –> 03:21:50,521
fact that the same object may produce

4220
03:21:50,521 –> 03:21:54,440
different impressions in different minds

4221
03:21:54,440 –> 03:21:56,820
having shown that our bodily conditions

4222
03:21:56,820 –> 03:21:59,521
and circumstances depend on karma while

4223
03:21:59,521 –> 03:22:02,490
karma depends on perception and will the

4224
03:22:02,490 –> 03:22:04,680
sage recognizes the fact that from this

4225
03:22:04,680 –> 03:22:06,240
may be drawn the false deduction that

4226
03:22:06,240 –> 03:22:08,280
material things are no wise different

4227
03:22:08,280 –> 03:22:10,740
from states of minds the same thought

4228
03:22:10,740 –> 03:22:12,960
has occurred and still occurs to all

4229
03:22:12,960 –> 03:22:15,480
philosophers and by various reasonings

4230
03:22:15,480 –> 03:22:16,830
they all come to the same wise

4231
03:22:16,830 –> 03:22:19,561
conclusion but the material world is not

4232
03:22:19,561 –> 03:22:22,620
made by the mood of any human mind but

4233
03:22:22,620 –> 03:22:24,240
is rather the manifestation of the

4234
03:22:24,240 –> 03:22:26,820
totality of invisible being whether we

4235
03:22:26,820 –> 03:22:29,730
call this mehat with the ancients or

4236
03:22:29,730 –> 03:22:33,320
either with the moderns

4237
03:22:34,479 –> 03:22:39,199
Sutra 16 Nords material objects depend

4238
03:22:39,199 –> 03:22:41,750
upon a single mind for how could they

4239
03:22:41,750 –> 03:22:44,060
remain objective to others if that mind

4240
03:22:44,060 –> 03:22:48,409
ceased to think of them this is but a

4241
03:22:48,409 –> 03:22:50,090
further development of the thought of

4242
03:22:50,090 –> 03:22:52,399
the preceding Sutra carrying on the

4243
03:22:52,399 –> 03:22:54,199
thought that while the universe is

4244
03:22:54,199 –> 03:22:56,720
spiritual yet its material expression is

4245
03:22:56,720 –> 03:23:00,079
ordered consistent ruled by law not

4246
03:23:00,079 –> 03:23:02,210
subject to the whims or affirmations of

4247
03:23:02,210 –> 03:23:04,970
a single mind unwelcome material things

4248
03:23:04,970 –> 03:23:07,399
may be escaped by spiritual growth by

4249
03:23:07,399 –> 03:23:09,920
rising to a realm above them and not by

4250
03:23:09,920 –> 03:23:11,540
denying their existence on their own

4251
03:23:11,540 –> 03:23:14,750
plane so that our system is neither

4252
03:23:14,750 –> 03:23:17,119
materialistic nor idealistic in the

4253
03:23:17,119 –> 03:23:19,729
extreme sense but rather intuitional and

4254
03:23:19,729 –> 03:23:21,739
spiritual holding that matter is the

4255
03:23:21,739 –> 03:23:23,590
manifestation of spirit as a whole a

4256
03:23:23,590 –> 03:23:26,300
reflection or external ization of spirit

4257
03:23:26,300 –> 03:23:29,810
and like spirit everywhere obedient to

4258
03:23:29,810 –> 03:23:33,079
law the path of liberation is not

4259
03:23:33,079 –> 03:23:35,390
through denial of matter but through

4260
03:23:35,390 –> 03:23:37,699
denial of the wills of self through

4261
03:23:37,699 –> 03:23:40,130
obedience and that aspiration which

4262
03:23:40,130 –> 03:23:43,960
builds the vesture of a spiritual man

4263
03:23:45,279 –> 03:23:50,149
Sutra 17 an object is perceived or not

4264
03:23:50,149 –> 03:23:53,239
perceived according as the mind is or is

4265
03:23:53,239 –> 03:23:57,100
not tinged with the color of the object

4266
03:23:57,100 –> 03:24:00,170
the simplest manifestation of this is a

4267
03:24:00,170 –> 03:24:03,109
matter of attention our minds apprehend

4268
03:24:03,109 –> 03:24:05,779
what they wish to apprehend all else

4269
03:24:05,779 –> 03:24:10,220
passes unnoticed or on the other hand we

4270
03:24:10,220 –> 03:24:12,680
perceive what we resent as for example

4271
03:24:12,680 –> 03:24:15,770
the noise of a passing train while

4272
03:24:15,770 –> 03:24:18,260
others used to the sound do not notice

4273
03:24:18,260 –> 03:24:22,040
it at all but the deeper meaning is that

4274
03:24:22,040 –> 03:24:24,109
out of the vast totality of objects ever

4275
03:24:24,109 –> 03:24:26,270
present in the universe the mind

4276
03:24:26,270 –> 03:24:28,489
perceives only those which conform to

4277
03:24:28,489 –> 03:24:29,540
the hue of its Karma

4278
03:24:29,540 –> 03:24:32,899
the rest remain unseen even though close

4279
03:24:32,899 –> 03:24:36,770
at hand this spiritual law has been well

4280
03:24:36,770 –> 03:24:39,290
expressed by Emerson

4281
03:24:39,290 –> 03:24:42,319
through solidest eternal things the man

4282
03:24:42,319 –> 03:24:44,420
finds his road as if they did not

4283
03:24:44,420 –> 03:24:47,090
subsist and does not once respect their

4284
03:24:47,090 –> 03:24:49,630
being as soon as he needs a new object

4285
03:24:49,630 –> 03:24:52,790
suddenly he beholds it and no longer it

4286
03:24:52,790 –> 03:24:54,680
comes to pass through it but takes

4287
03:24:54,680 –> 03:24:57,740
another way when he has exhausted for

4288
03:24:57,740 –> 03:24:59,930
the time the nourishment to be drawn

4289
03:24:59,930 –> 03:25:02,750
from any one person or thing that object

4290
03:25:02,750 –> 03:25:04,580
is withdrawn from his observation and

4291
03:25:04,580 –> 03:25:06,140
though still in his immediate

4292
03:25:06,140 –> 03:25:08,330
neighbourhood he does not suspect its

4293
03:25:08,330 –> 03:25:12,529
presence nothing is dead men feign

4294
03:25:12,529 –> 03:25:15,140
themselves dead and endure mock funerals

4295
03:25:15,140 –> 03:25:18,020
and mournful obituaries and there they

4296
03:25:18,020 –> 03:25:20,689
stand looking out of the window found

4297
03:25:20,689 –> 03:25:23,029
and well in some new and strange

4298
03:25:23,029 –> 03:25:27,380
disguised Jesus is not dead he is very

4299
03:25:27,380 –> 03:25:33,040
well alive nor John nor Paul normal Matt

4300
03:25:33,040 –> 03:25:36,470
nor Aristotle at times we believe we

4301
03:25:36,470 –> 03:25:38,750
have seen them all and could easily tell

4302
03:25:38,750 –> 03:25:46,000
the name under which they go Sutra 18

4303
03:25:46,000 –> 03:25:48,649
the movements of the psychic nature are

4304
03:25:48,649 –> 03:25:50,540
perpetually objects of perception

4305
03:25:50,540 –> 03:25:53,270
since the spiritual man who is the Lord

4306
03:25:53,270 –> 03:25:57,590
of them remains unchanging here is

4307
03:25:57,590 –> 03:25:59,930
teaching of the utmost import both for

4308
03:25:59,930 –> 03:26:03,560
understanding and for practice – the

4309
03:26:03,560 –> 03:26:05,569
psychic nature belong all the ebb and

4310
03:26:05,569 –> 03:26:08,390
flow of emotion all hoping and fearing

4311
03:26:08,390 –> 03:26:11,359
desire and hate the things that make the

4312
03:26:11,359 –> 03:26:12,800
multitude of men and women deem

4313
03:26:12,800 –> 03:26:16,069
themselves happy or miserable – it also

4314
03:26:16,069 –> 03:26:18,170
belong the measuring and comparing the

4315
03:26:18,170 –> 03:26:20,450
doubt and questioning which for the same

4316
03:26:20,450 –> 03:26:23,930
multitude make up mental life so that

4317
03:26:23,930 –> 03:26:25,310
the results the emotion soaked

4318
03:26:25,310 –> 03:26:27,410
personality with its dark and narrow

4319
03:26:27,410 –> 03:26:30,500
view of life the shivering terror driven

4320
03:26:30,500 –> 03:26:33,710
personality that is life itself for all

4321
03:26:33,710 –> 03:26:38,600
but all of mankind yet the personality

4322
03:26:38,600 –> 03:26:40,790
is not the true man not the living soul

4323
03:26:40,790 –> 03:26:43,250
at all but only a spectacle which the

4324
03:26:43,250 –> 03:26:46,520
true man observes let us understand this

4325
03:26:46,520 –> 03:26:49,010
therefore and ourselves up inwardly to

4326
03:26:49,010 –> 03:26:50,600
the height of the spiritual man who

4327
03:26:50,600 –> 03:26:52,490
standing in the quiet light of the

4328
03:26:52,490 –> 03:26:53,181
eternal

4329
03:26:53,181 –> 03:26:55,761
looks down serene upon this turmoil of

4330
03:26:55,761 –> 03:27:01,431
the outer life when first masters the

4331
03:27:01,431 –> 03:27:03,561
personality the mind by thus looking

4332
03:27:03,561 –> 03:27:06,500
down on it from above from within by

4333
03:27:06,500 –> 03:27:08,471
steadily watching it seven flow as

4334
03:27:08,471 –> 03:27:11,360
objective outward and therefore not the

4335
03:27:11,360 –> 03:27:14,900
real self this standing back is the

4336
03:27:14,900 –> 03:27:15,610
first step

4337
03:27:15,610 –> 03:27:19,221
detachment the second can maintain the

4338
03:27:19,221 –> 03:27:21,230
vantage ground thus gained is

4339
03:27:21,230 –> 03:27:28,730
recollection Sutra 19 the mind is not

4340
03:27:28,730 –> 03:27:31,700
self luminous since it can be seen as an

4341
03:27:31,700 –> 03:27:35,811
object this is a further step toward

4342
03:27:35,811 –> 03:27:38,061
overthrowing the tyranny of the mind the

4343
03:27:38,061 –> 03:27:39,830
psychic nature of emotion and mental

4344
03:27:39,830 –> 03:27:42,261
measuring this psychic self the

4345
03:27:42,261 –> 03:27:44,051
personality claims to be absolute

4346
03:27:44,051 –> 03:27:46,160
asserting that life is furnished and

4347
03:27:46,160 –> 03:27:48,141
through it it seeks to impose on the

4348
03:27:48,141 –> 03:27:49,450
whole being of man it’s narrow

4349
03:27:49,450 –> 03:27:52,311
materialistic faceless view of life and

4350
03:27:52,311 –> 03:27:55,040
the universe it would clip the wings of

4351
03:27:55,040 –> 03:27:58,341
the foreign soul but the soul dethrones

4352
03:27:58,341 –> 03:28:00,400
the tyrants by perceiving and

4353
03:28:00,400 –> 03:28:02,690
steadfastly affirming that the psychic

4354
03:28:02,690 –> 03:28:05,271
self is no true self at all not self

4355
03:28:05,271 –> 03:28:07,011
luminous but only an object of

4356
03:28:07,011 –> 03:28:09,471
observation watched by the serene eyes

4357
03:28:09,471 –> 03:28:17,030
of the spiritual man future twenty nor

4358
03:28:17,030 –> 03:28:19,131
put the mind at the same time know

4359
03:28:19,131 –> 03:28:24,500
itself and things external to it future

4360
03:28:24,500 –> 03:28:26,690
twenty nor could the mind at the same

4361
03:28:26,690 –> 03:28:28,670
time know itself and things external to

4362
03:28:28,670 –> 03:28:32,480
it the truth is that the mind knows

4363
03:28:32,480 –> 03:28:35,150
neither external things nor itself it’s

4364
03:28:35,150 –> 03:28:37,280
measuring and analyzing it’s hoping and

4365
03:28:37,280 –> 03:28:40,101
fearing hating and desiring never give

4366
03:28:40,101 –> 03:28:42,410
it a true measure of life nor any sense

4367
03:28:42,410 –> 03:28:45,561
of real values ceaselessly active it

4368
03:28:45,561 –> 03:28:47,900
never really attains to knowledge or if

4369
03:28:47,900 –> 03:28:50,360
we admit its knowledge it ever a fall

4370
03:28:50,360 –> 03:28:52,221
short of wisdom which comes only through

4371
03:28:52,221 –> 03:28:54,230
intuition the vision of the spiritual

4372
03:28:54,230 –> 03:28:58,221
man life cannot be known by the mind its

4373
03:28:58,221 –> 03:28:59,841
secrets cannot be learned through the

4374
03:28:59,841 –> 03:29:02,811
mind the proof is the ceaseless strife

4375
03:29:02,811 –> 03:29:04,641
and contradictions of opinion among

4376
03:29:04,641 –> 03:29:06,500
those who trust in the mind

4377
03:29:06,500 –> 03:29:09,680
much less can the mind know itself the

4378
03:29:09,680 –> 03:29:11,330
more so because it is pervaded by the

4379
03:29:11,330 –> 03:29:14,500
illusion that it truly knows truly is

4380
03:29:14,500 –> 03:29:17,239
true knowledge of the mind comes first

4381
03:29:17,239 –> 03:29:20,120
when the spiritual man arising stands

4382
03:29:20,120 –> 03:29:22,370
detached regarding the mind from above

4383
03:29:22,370 –> 03:29:25,100
with quiet eyes and seeing it for the

4384
03:29:25,100 –> 03:29:27,200
tangled web of psychic forces that it

4385
03:29:27,200 –> 03:29:30,140
really is but the truth is divined long

4386
03:29:30,140 –> 03:29:32,420
before it is clearly seen and then

4387
03:29:32,420 –> 03:29:34,010
begins the long battle of the mind

4388
03:29:34,010 –> 03:29:36,410
against the real the mind fighting

4389
03:29:36,410 –> 03:29:41,200
doggedly craftily for its supremacy

4390
03:29:42,370 –> 03:29:46,550
suture 21 if the mind be thought of as

4391
03:29:46,550 –> 03:29:50,000
seen by another more inward mind then

4392
03:29:50,000 –> 03:29:51,560
there would be an endless series of

4393
03:29:51,560 –> 03:29:53,960
perceiving minds and a confusion of

4394
03:29:53,960 –> 03:29:59,090
memories one of the experience by which

4395
03:29:59,090 –> 03:30:01,310
the mind seeks to deny and thwart the

4396
03:30:01,310 –> 03:30:03,380
soul when it feels that it is beginning

4397
03:30:03,380 –> 03:30:06,380
to be circumvented and seen through if

4398
03:30:06,380 –> 03:30:08,330
to assert that the seeing is the work of

4399
03:30:08,330 –> 03:30:10,939
a part of itself one part observing the

4400
03:30:10,939 –> 03:30:13,399
other and thus leaving no need nor place

4401
03:30:13,399 –> 03:30:17,149
for the spiritual man to this strategy

4402
03:30:17,149 –> 03:30:19,340
the argument is opposed fire philosopher

4403
03:30:19,340 –> 03:30:22,310
that this would be no true solution but

4404
03:30:22,310 –> 03:30:24,920
only a postponement of the solution for

4405
03:30:24,920 –> 03:30:26,510
we should have to find yet another part

4406
03:30:26,510 –> 03:30:28,340
of the mind to view the first observing

4407
03:30:28,340 –> 03:30:30,350
part and then another to observe this

4408
03:30:30,350 –> 03:30:34,370
and so on endlessly the true solution is

4409
03:30:34,370 –> 03:30:36,649
that the spiritual man looks down upon

4410
03:30:36,649 –> 03:30:39,560
the psychic nature and observe this when

4411
03:30:39,560 –> 03:30:41,870
he views a psychic pictures gallery this

4412
03:30:41,870 –> 03:30:43,899
is memory which would be a hopeless

4413
03:30:43,899 –> 03:30:46,220
inextricable confusion if we thought of

4414
03:30:46,220 –> 03:30:47,899
one part of the mind with its memories

4415
03:30:47,899 –> 03:30:50,029
viewing another part with memories of

4416
03:30:50,029 –> 03:30:53,510
its own the solution of the mystery lies

4417
03:30:53,510 –> 03:30:56,630
not in the mind but beyond it and the

4418
03:30:56,630 –> 03:30:59,359
luminous life of the risen Lord the

4419
03:30:59,359 –> 03:31:06,260
spiritual man sutured 22 when the

4420
03:31:06,260 –> 03:31:08,180
psychical nature takes on the form of

4421
03:31:08,180 –> 03:31:10,729
the spiritual intelligence by reflecting

4422
03:31:10,729 –> 03:31:13,189
it then the self becomes conscious of

4423
03:31:13,189 –> 03:31:17,569
its own spiritual intelligence we are

4424
03:31:17,569 –> 03:31:19,880
considering a stage of spiritual life

4425
03:31:19,880 –> 03:31:21,500
at which the psychical nature has been

4426
03:31:21,500 –> 03:31:24,860
cleansed and purified formerly it

4427
03:31:24,860 –> 03:31:27,320
reflected in its plastic substance the

4428
03:31:27,320 –> 03:31:30,680
images of the earthy purified now it

4429
03:31:30,680 –> 03:31:32,229
reflects the image of the heavenly

4430
03:31:32,229 –> 03:31:34,490
giving the spiritual intelligence a

4431
03:31:34,490 –> 03:31:38,240
visible form the self beholding that

4432
03:31:38,240 –> 03:31:40,280
visible form in which it’s spiritual

4433
03:31:40,280 –> 03:31:42,410
intelligence has as it were taken

4434
03:31:42,410 –> 03:31:44,810
palpable shake thereby reaches self

4435
03:31:44,810 –> 03:31:48,320
recognition self comprehension the self

4436
03:31:48,320 –> 03:31:50,540
sees itself in this mirror and thus

4437
03:31:50,540 –> 03:31:53,149
becomes not only conscious but self

4438
03:31:53,149 –> 03:31:55,939
conscious this is from one point of view

4439
03:31:55,939 –> 03:31:58,550
the purpose of the whole evolutionary

4440
03:31:58,550 –> 03:32:06,170
process Sutra 23 the psychic nature

4441
03:32:06,170 –> 03:32:08,960
taking on the color of the seer and of

4442
03:32:08,960 –> 03:32:11,600
things seen leads to the perception of

4443
03:32:11,600 –> 03:32:17,180
all objects in the unregenerate man the

4444
03:32:17,180 –> 03:32:19,100
psychic nature is saturated with images

4445
03:32:19,100 –> 03:32:21,439
of material things of things seen or

4446
03:32:21,439 –> 03:32:24,320
heard or tasted or felt and this web of

4447
03:32:24,320 –> 03:32:26,270
dynamic images forms the ordinary

4448
03:32:26,270 –> 03:32:29,240
material and driving power of life the

4449
03:32:29,240 –> 03:32:32,120
sensation of sweet things tasted clamors

4450
03:32:32,120 –> 03:32:34,310
to be renewed and drives the man into

4451
03:32:34,310 –> 03:32:36,620
effort to obtain its renewal so he adds

4452
03:32:36,620 –> 03:32:38,930
image to image each dynamic and

4453
03:32:38,930 –> 03:32:41,570
importunate piling up sins intolerable

4454
03:32:41,570 –> 03:32:45,920
burden then comes regeneration and the

4455
03:32:45,920 –> 03:32:48,050
washing away of sin through the fiery

4456
03:32:48,050 –> 03:32:50,270
creative power of the soul which burns

4457
03:32:50,270 –> 03:32:51,920
out the stains of the psychic fester

4458
03:32:51,920 –> 03:32:54,320
purifying it as gold is refined in the

4459
03:32:54,320 –> 03:32:56,840
furnace the suffering of regeneration

4460
03:32:56,840 –> 03:32:58,550
Springs from this indispensible

4461
03:32:58,550 –> 03:33:01,729
purifying then the psychic vesture

4462
03:33:01,729 –> 03:33:03,350
begins to take on the color of the soul

4463
03:33:03,350 –> 03:33:06,170
no longer stained but suffused with

4464
03:33:06,170 –> 03:33:09,770
golden light and the man red generous

4465
03:33:09,770 –> 03:33:12,790
gleams with the radiance of eternity

4466
03:33:12,790 –> 03:33:15,320
thus the spiritual man puts on fair

4467
03:33:15,320 –> 03:33:17,540
raiment for this cleansing it is said

4468
03:33:17,540 –> 03:33:20,510
through your sins be as scarlet they

4469
03:33:20,510 –> 03:33:23,360
shall be white as snow though they be as

4470
03:33:23,360 –> 03:33:31,160
crimson they shall be as wool see 24

4471
03:33:31,160 –> 03:33:33,770
– psychic nature which has been printed

4472
03:33:33,770 –> 03:33:35,689
with mind images of innumerable material

4473
03:33:35,689 –> 03:33:38,240
things exists now for the spiritual man

4474
03:33:38,240 –> 03:33:43,040
building for him the mind once the

4475
03:33:43,040 –> 03:33:45,530
tyrant is now the slave recognized as

4476
03:33:45,530 –> 03:33:49,310
outward separate not self a well-trained

4477
03:33:49,310 –> 03:33:52,550
instrument of the spiritual man for it

4478
03:33:52,550 –> 03:33:54,410
is not ordained for the spiritual man

4479
03:33:54,410 –> 03:33:57,020
that finding his high realm he shall

4480
03:33:57,020 –> 03:33:58,910
enter altogether there and pass out of a

4481
03:33:58,910 –> 03:34:01,310
vision of mankind it is true that he

4482
03:34:01,310 –> 03:34:03,140
dwells in heaven but he also dwells on

struggles he has waged against it in the

mind and the spiritual man there comes

4507
03:35:07,820 –> 03:35:10,040
perfect fruition of the longing after

4508
03:35:10,040 –> 03:35:14,030
the real being of the self how many

4509

times in the long struggle have the

4510
03:35:15,800 –> 03:35:17,630
soul’s aspiration seemed but a hopeless

4511
03:35:17,630 –> 03:35:20,300
impossible dream a mad man’s Council of

and 10 times more than realized once a

4515
03:35:28,220 –> 03:35:30,170
long arduous fight against the mind and

4516
03:35:30,170 –> 03:35:33,470
the minds world view is one and then it

4517
03:35:33,470 –> 03:35:35,300
will be seen that unfaith and despair

4518
03:35:35,300 –> 03:35:37,640
were but weapons of the mind to dawn to

4519
03:35:37,640 –> 03:35:39,649
the soul and put off the day when the

4520
03:35:39,649 –> 03:35:41,450
neck of the mind shall be put under the

therefore overcome these are the prizes

4538

of regeneration

therefore die to self that you may rise

4540
03:36:30,300 –> 03:36:38,010
again to God suture 26 thereafter the

whole personal being bends towards

4542
03:36:39,780 –> 03:36:44,640
illumination toward eternal life this is

4543
03:36:44,640 –> 03:36:46,320
part of the secret of the soul that

4544
03:36:46,320 –> 03:36:48,390
salvation means not merely that a soul

4545
03:36:48,390 –> 03:36:49,710
shall be cleansed and raised to heaven

4546
03:36:49,710 –> 03:36:52,080
but that the whole realm of the natural

4547
03:36:52,080 –> 03:36:54,450
power shall be redeemed building up even

4548
03:36:54,450 –> 03:36:56,370
in this present world the kingly figure

4549
03:36:56,370 –> 03:36:58,950
of a spiritual man the traditions of the

4550
03:36:58,950 –> 03:37:00,510
ages are full of his footsteps

4551
03:37:00,510 –> 03:37:03,600
majestic uncomprehending shadows myths

4552
03:37:03,600 –> 03:37:06,390
demigods fill the memories of all the

4553
03:37:06,390 –> 03:37:09,540
nobler peoples but the time cometh when

4554
03:37:09,540 –> 03:37:11,670
he shall be known no longer demigod

4555
03:37:11,670 –> 03:37:14,160

the Eternals of the batik other thoughts

4559
03:37:25,260 –> 03:37:27,330
will arise through the impression of the

4560
03:37:27,330 –> 03:37:31,830
dynamic mind images the battle is long

4561
03:37:31,830 –> 03:37:34,290
and arduous but there be no mistake as

4562
03:37:34,290 –> 03:37:36,570
to that go not force to this battle

4563
03:37:36,570 –> 03:37:39,240
without counting the cost cages have

4564
03:37:39,240 –> 03:37:40,670
gone to the strengthening of the foe

4565
03:37:40,670 –> 03:37:43,470
ages of conflict must be spent here to

4566
03:37:43,470 –> 03:37:45,270
the foe holy Concord becomes a servant

4567

the folds minister to mankind and from

4568
03:37:48,930 –> 03:37:51,150
these long past ages in ours when the

4569
03:37:51,150 –> 03:37:54,180
contest flags will come new foes mind

4570
03:37:54,180 –> 03:37:55,920
born children springing up to fight for

4571
03:37:55,920 –> 03:37:58,060
mind reinforcements coming

4572
03:37:58,060 –> 03:38:01,510
from forgotten years forgotten lives for

4573
03:38:01,510 –> 03:38:03,640
once this conflict has begun it can be

4574
03:38:03,640 –> 03:38:05,619
ended only by sweeping victory an

4575
03:38:05,619 –> 03:38:08,380
unconditional unreserved surrender of

4576
03:38:08,380 –> 03:38:15,579
the vanquished suitor 28 these are to be

4577
03:38:15,579 –> 03:38:16,840
overcome as it was thought the

4578
03:38:16,840 –> 03:38:20,949
hindrances should be overcome these new

4579
03:38:20,949 –> 03:38:22,810
enemies and fears are to be overcome by

4580
03:38:22,810 –> 03:38:25,090
ceaselessly renewing the fight by a

4581
03:38:25,090 –> 03:38:27,489
steadfast dogged persistence whether in

4582
03:38:27,489 –> 03:38:29,290
victory or defeat which I’ll put the

4583
03:38:29,290 –> 03:38:31,750
stubbornness of the rocks to shame for

4584
03:38:31,750 –> 03:38:33,340
the soul is older than all things and

4585
03:38:33,340 –> 03:38:35,739
invincible it is of the very nature of

4586
03:38:35,739 –> 03:38:38,470
the soul to be uncomfortable therefore

4587
03:38:38,470 –> 03:38:40,479
fight on undaunted

4588
03:38:40,479 –> 03:38:42,819
knowing that the spiritual will once

4589
03:38:42,819 –> 03:38:44,710
awakened shall through the effort of the

4590
03:38:44,710 –> 03:38:47,229
contest come to its full strength the

4591
03:38:47,229 –> 03:38:49,229
ground gains can be held permanently

4592
03:38:49,229 –> 03:38:52,000
that great as is the dead weight of the

4593
03:38:52,000 –> 03:38:54,729
adversary it is yet measurable while a

4594
03:38:54,729 –> 03:38:56,979
warrior who fights for you for whom you

4595
03:38:56,979 –> 03:39:01,829
fight is a might immeasurable invincible

4596
03:39:01,829 –> 03:39:08,170
everlasting suture 29 he who after he

4597
03:39:08,170 –> 03:39:10,210
has attained if wholly free from self

4598
03:39:10,210 –> 03:39:12,189
reaches the essence of all that can be

4599
03:39:12,189 –> 03:39:14,279
known gathered together like a cloud

4600
03:39:14,279 –> 03:39:18,479
this is the true spiritual consciousness

4601
03:39:18,479 –> 03:39:20,829
it has been said that at the beginning

4602
03:39:20,829 –> 03:39:23,649
of the way we must kill out ambition the

4603
03:39:23,649 –> 03:39:25,810
great curse the giant weed which grows

4604
03:39:25,810 –> 03:39:27,430
us strongly in the heart of the devoted

4605
03:39:27,430 –> 03:39:30,069
disciple as in the mana desire the

4606
03:39:30,069 –> 03:39:32,439
remedy is sacrifice of self obedience

4607
03:39:32,439 –> 03:39:35,109
humility that purity of heart which

4608
03:39:35,109 –> 03:39:38,529
gives the vision of God thereafter he

4609
03:39:38,529 –> 03:39:40,119
who has attained is wrapped about with

4610
03:39:40,119 –> 03:39:41,680
the essence of all the can be known as

4611
03:39:41,680 –> 03:39:43,960
with the cloud he has that perfect

4612
03:39:43,960 –> 03:39:45,729
illumination which is the truth

4613
03:39:45,729 –> 03:39:47,949
spiritual consciousness through

4614
03:39:47,949 –> 03:39:50,020
obedience to the will of God he comes

4615
03:39:50,020 –> 03:39:52,270
into oneness of being with God he is

4616
03:39:52,270 –> 03:39:53,770
initiated into God’s view of the

4617
03:39:53,770 –> 03:39:58,680
universe seeing all life as God sees it

4618
03:39:59,159 –> 03:40:03,040
suture 30 thereon comes surcease from

4619
03:40:03,040 –> 03:40:07,989
sorrow and the burden of toil such a one

4620
03:40:07,989 –> 03:40:10,510
is said is free from the bond of karma

4621
03:40:10,510 –> 03:40:11,990
from the burden of toil

4622
03:40:11,990 –> 03:40:14,000
from that debt to works which come from

4623
03:40:14,000 –> 03:40:17,030
works done in self-love and desire free

4624
03:40:17,030 –> 03:40:18,950
from self will he is free from sorrow –

4625
03:40:18,950 –> 03:40:21,530
for sorrow comes from the fight of self

4626
03:40:21,530 –> 03:40:23,990
will against the divine will through the

4627
03:40:23,990 –> 03:40:25,940
correcting stress of the divine will

4628
03:40:25,940 –> 03:40:27,860
which seeks to counteract the evil

4629
03:40:27,860 –> 03:40:30,561
wrought by disobedience when the

4630
03:40:30,561 –> 03:40:32,030
conflict with the Divine Will ceases

4631
03:40:32,030 –> 03:40:34,700
then sorrow ceases and he who has grown

4632
03:40:34,700 –> 03:40:38,830
into obedience thereby enters into joy

4633
03:40:39,670 –> 03:40:44,061
Sutra 31 when all veils are rent all

4634
03:40:44,061 –> 03:40:46,460
stains washed away his knowledge becomes

4635
03:40:46,460 –> 03:40:50,141
infinite little remains for him to know

4636
03:40:50,141 –> 03:40:52,851
the first veil is the delusion that thy

4637
03:40:52,851 –> 03:40:54,860
soul is in some permanent way separate

4638
03:40:54,860 –> 03:40:56,740
from the grateful the divine eternal

4639
03:40:56,740 –> 03:40:59,300
when that veil is rent thou shalt

4640
03:40:59,300 –> 03:41:00,740
discerned by oneness with everlasting

4641
03:41:00,740 –> 03:41:03,891
life the second veil is the delusion of

4642
03:41:03,891 –> 03:41:05,240
enduring separateness from by other

4643
03:41:05,240 –> 03:41:05,811
selves

4644
03:41:05,811 –> 03:41:08,210
whereas in truth the soul that is in

4645
03:41:08,210 –> 03:41:09,830
them is one with the soul that is in

4646
03:41:09,830 –> 03:41:13,160
thee the world sin and shame are thy sin

4647
03:41:13,160 –> 03:41:17,420
and shame its joy also these veils rent

4648
03:41:17,420 –> 03:41:19,221
thou shalt enter into knowledge of

4649
03:41:19,221 –> 03:41:22,010
divine things and human things little

4650
03:41:22,010 –> 03:41:28,181
will remain unknown to thee Sutra 32

4651
03:41:28,181 –> 03:41:30,830
thereafter comes the completion of the

4652
03:41:30,830 –> 03:41:33,021
series of transformations of the three

4653
03:41:33,021 –> 03:41:35,420
nature potencies since their purpose is

4654
03:41:35,420 –> 03:41:40,190
attained it is a part of the beauty and

4655
03:41:40,190 –> 03:41:42,530
wisdom of the great Indian teachings the

4656
03:41:42,530 –> 03:41:44,870
Vedanta and the yoga alike – holds that

4657
03:41:44,870 –> 03:41:46,670
all life exists for the purposes of the

4658
03:41:46,670 –> 03:41:49,210
soul for the making of the spiritual man

4659
03:41:49,210 –> 03:41:51,800
they teach that all nature is an orderly

4660
03:41:51,800 –> 03:41:53,721
process of evolution leading up to this

4661
03:41:53,721 –> 03:41:56,660
designed for this end existing only for

4662
03:41:56,660 –> 03:41:58,851
this to bring forth and perfect the

4663
03:41:58,851 –> 03:42:02,120
spiritual man he is a crown of evolution

4664
03:42:02,120 –> 03:42:04,280
at his coming the goal of all

4665
03:42:04,280 –> 03:42:11,181
development is attained Sutra 33 the

4666
03:42:11,181 –> 03:42:13,010
series of transformations is divided

4667
03:42:13,010 –> 03:42:15,230
into moments when the series is

4668
03:42:15,230 –> 03:42:20,050
completed time gives place to duration

4669
03:42:20,920 –> 03:42:23,229
there are two kinds of eternity says the

4670
03:42:23,229 –> 03:42:25,930
commentary the Eternity of immortal life

4671
03:42:25,930 –> 03:42:27,810
which belongs to the spirit and the

4672
03:42:27,810 –> 03:42:30,850
Eternity of change which in here’s in

4673
03:42:30,850 –> 03:42:34,840
nature in all that is not spirit while

4674
03:42:34,840 –> 03:42:36,790
we are content to live in and for nature

4675
03:42:36,790 –> 03:42:40,600
in the circle of necessity stance ara we

4676
03:42:40,600 –> 03:42:43,450
doom ourselves to perpetual change that

4677
03:42:43,450 –> 03:42:45,490
which is born must die and that which

4678
03:42:45,490 –> 03:42:48,100
dies must be reborn it has changed ever

4679
03:42:48,100 –> 03:42:49,870
more a ceaseless series of

4680
03:42:49,870 –> 03:42:53,050
transformations but the spiritual man

4681
03:42:53,050 –> 03:42:55,900
enters a new order for him there is no

4682
03:42:55,900 –> 03:42:58,680
longer eternal change but eternal being

4683
03:42:58,680 –> 03:43:02,490
he has entered into the joy of his Lord

4684
03:43:02,490 –> 03:43:05,380
the spiritual birth which makes him heir

4685
03:43:05,380 –> 03:43:07,270
of the everlasting set the term to

4686
03:43:07,270 –> 03:43:09,880
change it is a culmination the crowning

4687
03:43:09,880 –> 03:43:12,130
transformation of the whole realm of

4688
03:43:12,130 –> 03:43:20,110
change Sutra 34 pure spiritual life is

4689
03:43:20,110 –> 03:43:22,720
therefore the inverse resolution of the

4690
03:43:22,720 –> 03:43:24,939
potencies of nature which have emptied

4691
03:43:24,939 –> 03:43:26,560
themselves of their value for the

4692
03:43:26,560 –> 03:43:29,320
spiritual man or it is the return of the

4693
03:43:29,320 –> 03:43:31,360
power of pure consciousness to its

4694
03:43:31,360 –> 03:43:35,020
essential form here we have a splendid

4695
03:43:35,020 –> 03:43:36,970
generalization in which our wise

4696
03:43:36,970 –> 03:43:39,189
philosopher finally reconciles the

4697
03:43:39,189 –> 03:43:42,220
natural ists and the idealist expressing

4698
03:43:42,220 –> 03:43:44,680
the crown and end of his teaching first

4699
03:43:44,680 –> 03:43:46,840
in the terms of the naturalist and then

4700
03:43:46,840 –> 03:43:50,439
in the terms of the idealist the births

4701
03:43:50,439 –> 03:43:52,750
and growth of the spiritual man and his

4702
03:43:52,750 –> 03:43:55,060
entry into his immortal heritage may be

4703
03:43:55,060 –> 03:43:58,000
regarded as our philosopher either as

4704
03:43:58,000 –> 03:43:59,860
the culmination of the whole process of

4705
03:43:59,860 –> 03:44:02,620
natural evolution and involution where

4706
03:44:02,620 –> 03:44:05,020
that which flowed from out the boundless

4707
03:44:05,020 –> 03:44:08,260
deep turns again home or it may be

4708
03:44:08,260 –> 03:44:10,390
looked at as the vedantins look at it as

4709
03:44:10,390 –> 03:44:12,610
a restoration of pure spiritual

4710
03:44:12,610 –> 03:44:14,320
consciousness to its pristine and

4711
03:44:14,320 –> 03:44:17,229
essential form there is no discrepancy

4712
03:44:17,229 –> 03:44:19,479
or conflict between these two views

4713
03:44:19,479 –> 03:44:21,670
which are but two accounts of the same

4714
03:44:21,670 –> 03:44:25,330
thing therefore those who study the wise

4715
03:44:25,330 –> 03:44:27,580
philosopher Beall a naturalist or

4716
03:44:27,580 –> 03:44:30,100
idealist have no excuse to linger over

4717
03:44:30,100 –> 03:44:33,310
dialectic subtleties or disputes these

4718
03:44:33,310 –> 03:44:34,820
things are lifted from their path

4719
03:44:34,820 –> 03:44:36,650
lest they should be tempted to delay

4720
03:44:36,650 –> 03:44:38,720
over them and they are left facing the

4721
03:44:38,720 –> 03:44:41,480
path itself stretching upward and onward

4722
03:44:41,480 –> 03:44:44,860
