own experience in not limited to a "radiant peace";
I know very well what ecstasy and Ananda are from the
brahmãnanda down to the sarirananda, and can
experience them at any time. But of these things I prefer
to speak only when my work is done - for it is in a
transformed consciousness here and not only above where
the Ananda always exists that I seek their base of permanence.
have no intention of achieving the Supermind for myself
only - I am not doing anything for myself, neither of
salvation (Moksha) nor supramentalisation. If I am seeking
after supramentalisation, it is because it is a thing
that has to be done for the earth-consciousness and
if it is not done in myself, it cannot be done in others.
My supramentalisation is only a key for opening the
gates of the supramental to the earth-consciousness;
done for its own sake, it would be perfectly futile.
But it does not follow either that if or when I become
supramental, everybody will become supramental. Others
can so become who are ready for it, when they are ready
for it - though, of course, the achievement in myself
will be to them a great help towards it. It is therefore
quite legitimate to have the aspiration for it - provided:
1. One does not make a too personal or egoistic affair
of it turning it into a Nietzschean or
other ambition to be a superman.
2. One is ready to undergo the conditions and stages
needed for the achievement.
3. One is sincere and regards it as part of the seeking
of the Divine and consequent culmination of the Divine
Will in one and insists on no more than the fulfillment
of that will whatever it may be, psychicisation, spiritualization
or supramentalisation. It should be regarded as the
fulfillment of God's working in the world, not as a
personal chance or achievement.
