object:A psychic fire within must be lit into which all is thrown with the Divine Name upon it.

--- NOTES
  So as mentioned in "exegesis" that this quote is perhaps fourth? in the chain of this series
    1 -- If you want to be saved look at the face of your Christ.
    2 -- He who denies the existence of God, has some reason for wishing that God did not exist.
    3 -- It is the very nature of the soul or the psychic being to turn towards the Divine Truth as the sunflower to the sun; it accepts and clings to all that is divine or progressing towards divinity and draws back from all that is a perversion or a denial of it, from all that is false and undivine.
    4 -- A psychic fire within must be lit into which all is thrown with the Divine Name upon it.

--- MERIT
  This passage seems a solution to the problem of "not turning to God" for if it is insincerity, or ill-will that keeps one from following the first chain, then it seems a battle between the Soul and the obstinate lower nature. As such link 4 seems the solution. The merits of link 1, will be described there.

--- PROBLEM
  - And so, then, link 4 states what is to be done, but how to do it?
  - For such a movement as described seems on par with offering something to God, which I am very familiar with the desolate fraction of how many of my actions belong to that class.
  - So then perhaps the next problem, requiring the next link arises; or perhaps, the solution comes with going back through the chain and making sure it is solid such that I have no qualms with why link 4 is important. it seems related also to the question "why Yoga?", or "why should one seek union with God with ones entire nature?"
  - And so then it feels as if I precursory link is missing in the chain, or a few. such as "God is" and "why to seek God" for if I can admit in all likelihood that God exists, and then follow the consequences of that existence, it should also lead to "what is to be done based on that knowledge."

--- QUESTIONS
  - Why must one do such a thing?
    If thou seek God, to know Him, or see Him, or love Him, to be with Him, or to best attain to his attributes; this is the fastest course to such a goal since as posited in link 3, it is the soul that turns to Him.
    So to make such sacrifices will tip the psychological balance in favor of God-seeking, which is the goal.
    Also the obstacles to such vision, one of which is impurity will be cleansed,
    as will the attraction to all the lesser movements which break the capacity to go deeper due to the lack of single-mindedness and sincerity.
  - So then, you will do so always? And finally start your walk towards Christ rather than trying to see him from across the Ocean? Failing and settling with attempted inference?
    LB: No. I wish both, I wish to splendor of the vision of God while enjoying the lower treats. Especially one such as Marijuana, it helps me remember, but at my will, rather than Gods.
    God may deny me for years, whereas with the aid of the drug I can see partially and temporarily everyday! Is it not better to be on track each day?
  - So you seek God for the fulfillment of ones lower desires? sure. but the Soul seeks God still. and no lasting satisfaction can come from temporal things
  - You are happy with temporal satisfaction? Is that why you came?
    It is not just that! Marijuana helps me remember, to be high.
      Yes but do you not wish to remember always? To be able to work always? be one with the Divine Consciousness-Force always?
      You move from object to object, looking for something, you will not find it on facebook.
      You know offering to God is best, you know it true. You deny it but you know it best
  - Why would one not wish to do such a thing? or why not toss all then, into the Psychic Fire?
  - From now on, all smoking, all facebook, all masturbation, ticks or physical habits such as hair plucking, constant checking of Discord. Why not toss that all in when the urges arise?
  - Which parts of the nature are on-board? Which resist?

  - What will you say to the desires as they come? How can you tell them no? With what backing? Even without God it still has will training merits but still.

--- POTENTIALLY RELATED CONCEPTS
  - shame or embarrasment of limitation, being a finite being that can get things I want?

--- POTENTIALLY RELATED QUOTES
  - That is the divine Brahman and not this which men here adore. (SA-TSOY)
  - Beware! Don't allow yourself to do what you know is wrong, relying on the thought, Later I will repent and ask God's forgiveness. ~ Jalaluddin Rumi
  - There is a purpose in life - and it is the only true and lasting one - the Divine. Turn to Him and the emptiness will go. Blessings. (TM-WOTM2)

   2 Sri Aurobindo

NEW FULL DB (2.4M)


1:A psychic fire within must be lit into which all is thrown with the Divine Name upon it. ~ Sri Aurobindo, The Synthesis Of Yoga ,
2:If the spirit of divine love can enter, the hardness of the way diminishes, the tension is lightened, there is a sweetness and joy even in the core of difficulty and struggle. The indispensable surrender of all our will and works and activities to the Supreme is indeed only perfect and perfectly effective when it is a surrender of love. All life turned into this cult, all actions done in the love of the Divine and in the love of the world and its creatures seen and felt as the Divine manifested in many disguises become by that very fact part of an integral Yoga. It is the inner offering of the heart's adoration, the soul of it in the symbol, the spirit of it in the act, that is the very life of the sacrifice. If this offering is to be complete and universal, then a turning of all our emotions to the Divine is imperative. This is the intensest way of purification for the human heart, more powerful than any ethical or aesthetic catharsis could ever be by its half-power and superficial pressure. A psychic fire within must be lit into which all is thrown with the Divine Name upon it. In that fire all the emotions are compelled to cast off their grosser elements and those that are undivine perversions are burned away and the others discard their insufficiencies, till a spirit of largest love and a stainless divine delight arises out of the flame and smoke and frankincense. ~ Sri Aurobindo, The Synthesis Of Yoga The Ascent of the Sacrifice - 2,

  It is the inner offering of the heart's adoration, the soul of it in the symbol, the spirit of it in the act, that is the very life of the sacrifice. If this offering is to be complete and universal, then a turning of all our emotions to the Divine is imperative. This is the intensest way of purification for the human heart, more powerful than any ethical or aesthetic catharsis could ever be by its half-power and superficial pressure. A psychic fire within must be lit into which all is thrown with the Divine Name upon it. In that fire all the emotions are compelled to cast off their grosser elements and those that are undivine perversions are burned away and the others discard their insufficiencies, till a spirit of largest love and a stainless divine delight arises out of the flame and smoke and frankincense. It is the divine love which so emerges that, extended in inward feeling to the Divine in man and all creatures in an active universal equality, will be more potent for the perfectibility of life and a more real instrument than the ineffective mental ideal of brotherhood can ever be. It is this poured out into acts that could alone create a harmony in the world and a true unity between all its creatures; all else strives in vain towards that end so long as Divine Love has not disclosed itself as the heart of the delivered manifestation in terrestrial Nature.
