The Body in its Search for the Future – Aster Patel

A talk at the AUM Conference in Port Townsend, Washington, as recorded in 2005. The meeting’s theme was “The Promise of the Future”. The video was kindly provided by Matagiri Sri Aurobindo Center (https://matagiri.org). A very relevant quotation from Sri Aurobindo’s writings, selected by the organizers, is below.

“… it is no longer the change of body that must precede the change of consciousness; the consciousness itself by its mutation will necessitate and operate whatever mutation is needed for the body. It has to be noted that the human mind has already shown the capacity to aid nature in the evolution of new types of plant and animal; it has created new forms of its environment, developed by knowledge and disciplined considerable changes in its own mentality. It is not an impossibility that man should aid nature consciously also in his own spiritual and physical evolution and transformation. The urge to do it is already there and partly effective though still incompletely understood and accepted by the surface mentality; but one day it may understand, go deeper within itself and discover the means, the secret energy, the intended operation of Consciousness-Force within which is the hidden reality we call Nature.” [ Life Divine, CWSA 21-22: 876-877]
