With Satprem, we understand the virtues of mental silence, learn about the invisible gradations of consciousness above the mind, decipher the many beings and forces that inhabit us. All our unknown potentialities come alive before our eyes. Most importantly, we appreciate how these untapped possibilities within us relate to our daily life, how they can transform it from the inside, as it were, and how, ultimately, Sri Aurobindo's experience leads to a "divine rehabilitation of Matter."
"We have denied the Divinity in Matter, to confine it instead in our holy places, but now Matter is taking its revenge. We call Matter crude, and crude it is. As long as we tolerate this imbalance between Matter and Spirit, there is no hope for the earth. We will only continue to swing from one extreme to another, both equally false - from material enjoyment to spiritual austerity - without ever fining true fulfillment. We need BOTH the vigor of Matter and the fresh waters of the Spirit ... Now the time may have come at last to recover the whole truth of the two poles WTITHIN A THIRD POSITION, which is neither that of the materialists nor that of the spiritualists."
