Inner Self-Awareness

 

         Our surface skills become perfect when they become subconscious skills. To be conscious in yoga is for that subconscious to become conscious.

         Yoga requires the heartbeat, digestion, etc. that are now subconscious to become conscious.

         It is in the subliminal the subconscious becomes conscious.

         The first realisation is to realise that the surface is moved by the subliminal.

         It is to acquire Subliminal-Consciousness.

         Silence in the subliminal thinks or knows without thinking.

         It is so because Memory that needs thinking acts in the subliminal differently.

         On the surface Memory presents facts which necessitates the mind to resort to thinking to reach understanding.

         There is no Memory in the subliminal as we know Memory in the surface. Therefore, understanding there needs no thinking.

         The Subliminal thinks in Subliminal Silence.

         The Subliminal Silence makes for Inner Self-Awareness.

         As elsewhere, this too has two sides, one leaning towards ego, ourselves, the old surface; the other leaning towards the Subliminal, away from ourselves or ego.

         Inner Self-Awareness for anything such as delight, understanding, memory, etc. is Brahman aware of Itself as that -- e.g. delight, understanding, memory, etc.

         Inner Self-Awareness reaches the Simultaneous co-existence of Time-eternity as well as Timeless-eternity after travelling through all the intermediate planes.

         The formula of Prosperity for the vital man is Inner Self-Awareness of Prosperity -- that it is real -- at the mental level.

         The formula for yoga for man is the Inner Self-Awareness of yoga at the mental level.

         Inner Self-Awareness of a thing achieves it at once.
