<1>In this stage, He was greatly engaged in
helping his immediate surroundings with the feeling of belonging to
that environment. <2>Also the feeling of possessiveness of
that immediate surrounding was with him. So again a great attachment
was created in him.
<3>But as he progressed further, his mind was
expanded and he felt more
unit consciousnesses as a part of him. He realized that being
attached to a small part of the universe creates
of the mind, and this results in prejudice and misjudgment.
<4>Also he more and more understood that all is
God, and if all is
God, how can he only love a
God and hate the rest?
<5>So he gave up the narrow feeling of belonging to a small part
of the universe and created a great compassion for the whole.
<6>With this, his mind was expanded and all the
narrowness was destroyed. <7>Any other view than
narrow and a hindrance in human progress toward becoming one.
<8>However, there would be times that he would
not feel to help others or would become attached to the result of
his actions. He would become discouraged, unhappy, and depressed
again. <9>So even a deeper realization came to him.
<10>This deeper realization was that the
power of the
tama guna, which is
not yet mastered, crudifies his consciousness and is the cause of
forgetting all these realizations and becoming self-centered again. <11>The result would be the feeling of separation, egotism,
discouragement, and all the
evils related to these
things. <12>This egotism (power of the
tama guna over the
Soul) influences both the
reasoning (satva guna
and the action (raja guna
causing them to be directed toward selfishness and results in the
feeling of separation even deeper.
<13>However, when the reasoning and action are
done with a universal outlook for the good of all, these forces
(satva and raja) will be directed toward the well-being of the whole
universe. <14>Then the reasoning becomes Wisdom, and the actions
<15>Also, the process toward the feeling of
being a part of the whole is accelerated, and the direction of the
creative powers become universally-centered rather than
self-centered. <16>And that is the key to true happiness and
freedom, through universally directed actions and attention.
<17>Furthermore, through realization of the
self and the nature of the
including the effect of the
tama guna on the
self, and then by going
beyond these influences and mastering them, the result would be the
rise of great devotion toward the universe (God)
and all its components.
<18>Then the true nature of the
self will arise and that is where the true happiness, supreme
peace, and the greatest joy (Ananda)
<19>Whoever knows the consciousness (Chit) truly
(Sat) will experience bliss (Ananda).
<20>So even a more intense period began in his
spiritual progress. By deeper realization of the
with longing to create an environment ()
where he could help others more effectively to progress and he
himself progress in the process, by realizing that to create such an
environment a great
is needed (),
the result of his
sacrifice and actions, (and even greater than that, to become
he realized he could overcome any binding effect of his actions.
<21>Also he directed all his efforts and attention with a
universal view for the good of all ().
<22>With this, he became a great spiritual force in the
universe in helping others to reach higher consciousness ().
<23>By these realizations and through his
struggles, he won the
God. <24>So by his
struggles and great endeavors, he dissolved his
ego to the Universal Ego. <25>Through the
God, he eventually overcame
any feeling of separation as "I
am" apart from the "I AM."
