“To be the superman is to live the divine life, to be a god; for the gods are the power of God. Be a power of God in humanity.
To live in the divine Being and let the consciousness and bliss, the will and knowledge of the Spirit possess thee and play with thee and through thee, this is the meaning.
This is the transfiguration of thyself on the mountain. It is to discover God in thyself and reveal him to thyself in all things. Live in his being, shine with his light, act with his power, rejoice with his bliss. Be that Fire and that Sun and that Ocean. Be that joy and that greatness and that beauty.
When thou hast done this even in part, thou hast attained the first steps of supermanhood.” ~ Sri Aurobindo
For many years, perhaps lifetimes, the journey towards integration of body, mind and spirit is concentrated on investigating, embracing, maturing into one’s true identity.
This is the evolutionary process, to move beyond the control of the senses ruled by the emotions and to move forward into a conscious, intelligent process, governing one’s own reality in accordance with the destiny written by the cosmos.
The Soul and True Identity
The Soul is the intelligent factor, the psyche, that works like a receptor tuning into the various frequencies of the cosmos and is rooted in the lower mind, as well. The nature of Soul is independent as it chooses its direction and experiences within a set of possibilities.
Soul is the barometer of consciousness as it moves with growing awareness from the Solar Plexus to the Heart Chakra to the Throat Chakra and finally, up to the Crown Chakra where the bridge is established to connect with the glorious, shining golden being, the Higher Self, waiting to penetrate matter. Now, the soul is no longer the driving force, rather a quiet ego rests in the background supplying talent and abilities according to the intuitive prompting of consciousness, the Higher Self.
The Higher Self & Consciousness
The Higher Self works with the higher mind and is the unchanging, unending part of the human composition. It is a spark of consciousness living in the body as a small flame, a pure light, deep inside the Heart Chakra yet, working through the Crown Chakra, too. This spark holds our existence in life even when there is no life and is also the consistent being that is quietly there watching when one experiences an increase in emotional reactions. This spark of consciousness has no desires, no reactions, no preferences nor does it have a life trajectory to follow and neither does it respond to the crankiness and imbalances outlined in the constitutions of Vata, Kapha and Pitta; nor does it respond to the hormones and their tendency to create extreme mood swings.
In this space of consciousness, there is clarity in all decision-making, there is no greed, no fear and life is seen objectively, not with judgment, criticism and opinions. There is a continuous conscious enthusiasm that does not tire while maintaining excellent physical health and in service for higher forces. There is an extraordinary capacity for handling life events and challenging, difficult people when consciousness is pouring in through the higher mind.
The higher mind, the brain is the most extraordinary organ in the body yet, the most under-utilized. For the most part, it governs the mechanical survival components. However, the non-mechanical parts of the brain are a true phenomenon. These non-mechanical parts of the brain are activated when one has reached a fully conscious reality. The third eye, between the eyebrows is activated as well as four other chakras in the head area, the Alta major, the Crown chakra, etc. Life changes considerably as one can see 360 degrees, peer through the skin of a body and see the condition of internal organs. A conscious being can see if there is disease and how the karma and the planets may be influencing health in a challenging way causing illness. One can also see through another person’s third eye from a distance and see their surroundings, their activities and sense their mood. One can even use electronic devices to view, interact and effect without ever dialing up or using any of the applications on the phone or computer. It is quite extraordinary what this mind can do if allowed.
Yoga Sciences for Connecting with Higher Self
One creates the pathway to the Higher Self through Pranayama exercises, utilizing prana in place of oxygen to form new channels in the brain. As more prana enters into the system, the Heart Chakra is expanded and given the ability to handle and include large numbers of people without judging or condemning or excluding. Yet, with these new grooves comes proper judgment while exercising leadership consciousness.
Of course, Pratayahara, control of the senses, is in operation as taste is ignored and the tendency to overeat is abolished, causing the Brahmacharya to thrive, virtually, on no food and very little sleep. Breathing large amounts of prana actually takes away the desire for food and stimulates the body into great creativity.
The more resistant one is to new ideas, the less Prana coming into the system and less activity with the higher mind and certainly, more closed is the Heart Chakra. The more thoughtful, embracing and open to change, the more pathways created through this interplay with Prana and the brain.
By meditating throughout the day and applying Pranayama, energies move smoothly and passage ways are cleared more quickly, effectively for transformation. Certainly, all the powers mentioned above are active and expressed in accordance to the disciplines applied and the sincerity of the endeavor towards conscious union as the Master initiates powers into action when the student is ready.
Six Month Purification to connect with Higher Conscious Self

Set for the day, one can withstand, endure all events while radiating and sharing a joyful, equanimous state filled with divine presence and the influence of the Higher Self, bathed in the pure light of consciousness
There will come a time when human consciousness is in the required state for supramental consciousness to enter …..and manifest.
…….Only those who have done what I have said, those who have thrown themselves entirely, risked all for all, those will know it. And they will be the only ones to know, they will know when it takes place.
They will not even be aware of it!
They will continue their stupid life, without knowing what has happened.
