58 From the Personal Mind to the Supermind to Sachchidananda

Sri-Aurobindo_Samadhi

Once we get out of the legalistic and politically-driven questions about what is true, the question of how do we know what we know swims into view. The lower mind, the vibration of mind through which we perceive and understand the world, the mind of the mass consciousness, gives us very limited knowledge about what reality is. To live exclusively out of the lower mind is to life in the fake-reality. Knowledge generated out of the higher mind reveals much more about the nature of the universe as a spiritual event and brings us into closer contact with the divine intelligence that governs all things in the cosmos, including you and me specifically.

This episode is highly influenced by my readings of Sri Aurobindo, especially The Life Divine, which is a breathtaking but challenging opus of spiritual knowledge composed over an entire lifetime. A visit to the Sri Aurobindo Darshan Page would be a supportive experience to this audio, which is about how the higher mind experiences eventually lead us to coming under the influence of the Supermind, as Sri Aurobindo refers to the divine intelligence running the universe.
