Book 1 Canto 1 Movement 2, Part 4
Our being is trapped as it were within a triple layer formed of the substance of corresponding worlds of Mind, Life and Matter. These keep the soul captive and do not allow easy access to the realm of the Soul. The seeker has to force his way through these to reach his soul.
“All forms are tokens of some veiled idea
Whose covert purpose lurks from mind’s pursuit,
Yet is a womb of sovereign consequence.
There every thought and feeling is an act,
And every act a symbol and a sign,
And every symbol hides a living power.”

There is a subconscious yoga going on in nature that has led to the progressive emergence of the soul from within the crypts of matter and the dark and fallen worlds. Slowly this subconscious yoga turns into a conscious one as man climbs to glimpses and starts climbing towards his own unrealized potentials.

“Each technological advance becomes a kind of biological amputation by eliminating the need of exercising an organ. The result is a robotic life driven by robotic means where one needs chemicals to escape from drudgery and boredom…..But there is another reason for the disturbance of balance. That relates to the aim and pace of life.”
“Till the veil is lifted, till the night is dead,
In light or dark she keeps her tireless search;
Time is her road of endless pilgrimage.”
25 July 1938, revised 21 March 1944. Two handwritten manuscripts, the first entitled “Identity”.
