The Realisation of the Absolute :

1. Introduction :

(a).Integrality and Aspiration : 1.

The Attainment of Perfection is the Conscious Integration of Being.

This is the central theme of the Upanishads.

The Upanishads are intuitional revelations, and intuition is integral experience.

Their declarations cannot fail to include within themselves the absolute scope of the diverse methods of approach to the one Reality, for integrality excludes nothing.

No two individuals think alike, for thinking, which is the objective movement of the Spiritual Force, differs in its mode and impetus in different points of stress in integral existence.

But, then, in spite of this separation of beings through their modes of mentation, all individuals have to aim at the attainment of a common Goal, the achievement of a common purpose, for, the truth of them all is one, and all their paths must but meet at One Perfection.

Perfection or truth cannot be two, and there cannot be two absolutes.

Hence, the methods of approach to Reality must all inherit certain fundamental natures or qualities which belong to the eternal nature of pure Existence.

It is this undeniable fact that goes to prove the logical consistency that must exist and that exists among the multitudes of the methods employed by the relative individuals to experience Truth as it really is.
