Drop of Dharma
We who have committed to a spiritual path are the lucky ones who have opened our consciousness to admit and acknowledge that we are more than skin and bones, more than a separate entity among billions of separate entities and objects. Why are people held back by fear of the most miraculous transformation possible? ~ Jim Giorgi

"Living an integral life means “getting it together” and being “together” rather than being and feeling fragmented. It means thinking, feeling and acting always out of the certainty of your wholeness and never acting out of a sense of disconnection or lack."

Tools For Transformation

T)he Divine is in his essence infinite and his manifestation too is multitudinously infinite. If that is so, it is not likely that our true integral perfection in being and in nature can come by one kind of realisation alone; it must combine many different strands of divine experience. It cannot be reached by the exclusive pursuit of a single line of identity till that is raised to its absolute; it must harmonise many aspects of the Infinite. An integral consciousness with a multiform dynamic experience is essential for the complete transformation of our nature. — Sri Aurobindo, The Synthesis of Yoga, 1914, p. 114
