Personal Yoga - Introduction
Twenty years ago I read Franklin Merrell-Wolff's spiritual chronicle, "Pathways Through to Space". As a fellow seeker, it impacted me greatly. Today I am reading about Sri Aurobindo's life with fascination and awe. It has occurred to me, with some urging from Ron, to document here on SCIY some of what is in my own inner experience. To some this may seem arrogant, to others naive. The purpose is not to wallow in irrelevant diaristic meanderings. There are those more qualified than I to write about the process of inner awakening. However, I have an idea that there can be some collective movement and learning for all of us if we share our personal experiences and it is for this that I write.
My intention is to be rigorously honest, despite some embarrassment to myself, and also to present as accurately as I can in words the more ineffable aspects of this process, which are many.
From Sri Aurobindo's Letters on Yoga I, page 14:
"This transformation cannot be done individually or in a solitary way only. No individual solitary transformation unconcerned with the work for the earth (which means more than any individual transformation) would be either possible or useful. Also no individual human being can by his own power alone work out the transformation, nor is it the object of the yoga to create an individual superman here and there. The object of the yoga is to bring down the supramental consciousness on earth, to fix it there, to create a new race with the principle of the supramental consciousness governing the inner and outer individual and collective life."
