Hi Ed,

recently I found interesting read about Sri Aurobindo and felt like similar to what you said about your realizations.

Quote from his bookt:

"Sri Aurobindo's yoga and spiritual philosophy are founded on four great realizations. The first, the realisation of the silent, spaceless and timelesss Brahman, he had realized while meditating with Lele in 1908. The feeling and perception of the total unreality of the world which at first attended this realization disappeared after the second realization, which was gained in the Alipur jail, the realization of the cosmic consciousness and the vision of the Divine, as all beings and as all that is.

In his meditations in the jail Sri Aurobindo was already on his way to the other two realizations- that of the supreme Reality with the static and dynamic Brahman as its two aspects and that of the higher planes of consciousness leading to the Supermind."

I attach the whole text page at the bottom.

What I personaly find interesting with Sri Aurobindo is that He didn't teach in the old style of Vedas or Indian philosophy, although He didn't reject old teachings neither. He just never was in favour of statements like: " the world and you don't exist" or "the world is an illusion"...... So I feel there is much similarity with what you say on Satsangs about realizing emptines, God realization and His life force in everything, including ourselves.

Anyway, Am happy to share this with you.

Much Thanks to you!
