force) is responsible for intensifying the feeling of separation
from the Lord and becoming self-centered (ignorance).

Soul. As he succeeded in expanding his
mind and feeling greater oneness with
God, he experienced a great joy. But this joy was temporary and
again the power of the

<6>He realized that the environment around
him also affects his moods and whenever there is much tama present,
it would affect him and he would become more self-centered and lost. So he longed for a more satvic (sentient) environment ().
<7>In order to create such an environment, he
started to help others around himself to realize what he had already
realized. By bringing them to higher consciousness, he tried to
create a better environment. So he started to
for others in order to show them the way to higher consciousness.
<8>By much endeavor, he succeeded in helping
some to progress a little. So he created much pride that he is such
a great being and had
sacrificed so much
for others. By this he created a great
ego and so became self-centered, because he thought that he was
greater than those who needed his help. This resulted in an
intensified feeling of separation and again unhappiness.
<9>Also after some time, those whom he had
helped to progress fell back to their previous states, and he became
very discouraged as to why they would not progress even though he
had done so much to help them.
<10>So a great realization came to him. He
understood that because he was attached to the result of his action,
he had become egoistical and had longed for glory. With not
receiving it, he had become discouraged.
<11>From then on, he did the action but
surrendered the result to the Lord. With this, he freed himself from
the bondage of his action.
<12>Still later on he realized that even
submission, which is

channel for His
Divine actions. With this there would be no "I" left so no attachment.
<13>With these realizations, he greatly
succeeded in helping the ones immediately close to him. But as he
helped them more and expanded his consciousness further, greater joy
came to him and with it greater realization.
<14>He realized that "God
is All" and he not only should be concerned for those who are in his
immediate surroundings but for all the universe, because even being
concerned for only a small part of the universe (God)
still is separation from Him, and the result will be the same as

toward the whole universe. With this, he started to realize

<16>With all the progress of the last five
steps, he became a dynamic spiritual force ()
in the universe. Not only was a great permanent joy established in
him, he also won the
