The Realisation of the Absolute :2. ( d )-5.


Chapter-2.The Nature of the World
(d). THE IDEA OF PROGRESS-5.

Objective contact is meant to effect an escape out of faith in pluralistic independence.

The body has to be kept well as long as the individual is in the process of spiritual evolution.

If the body which is meant to effect a particular process of evolution in a particular stage of life is destroyed before the fulfilment of its duty, Nature will take a revenge against that individual and will compel the same to hang on in a condition necessary for the manifestation of another suitable body demanded by the need for continuing the previous work left unfulfilled.

The systematic Nature does not have discord within itself, and, hence, is not filled with conflicting forces. The forces of life are the different urges for a unification of the self with the all-inclusive Reality.

The universe with its inhabitants is transforming itself every moment with an inconceivably tremendous speed in order to exist as the absolutely conscious and harmonious Being.

Hence, the forces that work inside man and outside in the world are always harmonious and brotherly, and never inimical.

The senses work and demand their respective objects, the mind thinks of objective existence, life persists with its unceasing breaths, there is love and affection, hatred and battle, all because the Eternal Being is expressing itself in its Indivisible Multiplicity of Nature.

Life is a dramatic struggle for Self-realisation and Truth-experience.

Every event that occurs is for that purpose.
