Man cannot know himself save through meditation, through a deep dive into the calm chambers of the heart and a direct glance at the mirror of life within.
A title from the chapter: Mind: Its Tendencies and Its Transcendence, 19th May -
The Two Axes of Self-Knowledge:
"Man cannot know himself save through meditation, through a deep dive into the calm chambers of the heart and a direct glance at the mirror of life within. To have a comprehensive understanding of what we are, we must impress on our mind the two facts, viz. the existence of the Eternal Reality and the radical unity of all manifestations from star to mineral form, from inanimate nature to organized life. Every human being is a manifestation of the Lord; and, therefore, it is possible for everyone to become one with the Infinite. Reflection on the above truths of essential existence generates faith and conviction. Direct vision of the Reality supplants all vain arguments. Realization of truth makes everything clear and self-explanatory."
