The highest levels of the spiritual are the source of all things, most all-knowing and powerful. The material levels are most bound and resistant to change. Man can bring into his body, mind and life the influx of a higher spiritual consciousness, and change things even physically, including the genetic imprints if necessary.

Life is a power of the Divine, born of His Consciousness-Force who is filled with the breath of His infinity. But here she labours in Ignorance forfeiting her divinity. This is her curse and her ordeal.
His spirituality, which germinated in England and developed in India, was an ascent of his soul … a fully conscious, exploratory, and heuristic ascent from level to level of experience, and from world to world of beings and forces, to the highest peaks of the transcendent Spirit.
Why are so many flowers being seen these days?
It is usually when the psychic is active that this seeing of flowers becomes abundant.
All Yoga is in its nature a new birth; it is a birth out of the ordinary, the mentalised material life of man into a higher spiritual consciousness and a greater and diviner being.
Life has descended from its high peaks so as to create and build here the Beauty and Truth and Power and Delight of the Spirit. This is her labour and also the cause of her suffering.
… we must remember that as long as we have sincerity, Thy grace will never recede from us. Thou knowest our strength as well as our weakness.
Why is the world like this and not otherwise?… The fact is that it is so, isn’t it? and the second fact is that one doesn’t want it thus, and the third is to find the means that it may no longer exist. That is our problem.

The vision of Life in its totality comes closer to Aswapati as he ascends through the hierarchy of the ladder of Consciousness. At first we have distant glimpses, few and far in-between. Later they are more frequent and the truth that is glimpsed from afar comes closer and nearer.
What has the inner being to do with Yoga or spiritual life?
It is the outer being that has nothing to do with Yoga or spiritual life unless the inner awakens it.
It is often much easier and faster to act upon the illness from outside than from within. While doing so may be ‘natural’ for us, we should not be led to believe that it is the only or the complete way. What most of ‘treatment’ in modern medicine does very often is to put a check upon the symptoms.
Man …. wishes to be dazzled in order that he may see. And this impatience, this ignorance may turn into a great danger and disaster if …. we call in another distorting Force more satisfying to our impulses and desires and ask it to guide us and give it the Divine Name.
