The Nature of the Psychic Being

The Psychic is the "Innermost Being" (Amal Kiran, quoted by Craig Hamilton) is the permanent being in us that stands behind and supports the physical, vital and mental principles. It takes the essence of experience in the Ignorance to form a nucleus of growth in the nature; it "puts forth and uses mind, life and body as its instruments, undergoes the envelopment of their conditions, but it is other and greater than its members." (The Life Divine p.891) Amal Kiran (b. ... The Physical faculty or part of the being, in Sri Aurobindos philosophy, refers not just to the physical body, but the bodys consciousness as well. ...

The Mental faculty or part of the being, in Sri Aurobindos philosophy, is the conceptual and cognitive mind. ...


The term "Psychic" or Psychic Being in this context derives originally from the occult kabbalistic teachings of Max Théon, as conveyed by The Mother. Sri Aurobindo is careful to distinguish between the Psychic Being as defined in the Yoga and the ordinary meaning of "psychic" which refers more to the desire soul, or to psychological or paranormal phenomena which are connected with the inner mind, inner vital, or subtle physical subliminal nature rather than the true Soul (The Life Divine p.227 note). For other uses of this term, see occult (disambiguation). ... This article is about the overall Jewish mysticisms tradition. ... Max Theon (1848-1927) perhaps born Louis-Maximilian Bimstein, was a Polish Jewish Kabbalist and Occultist. ... This article is about the spiritual partner of Sri Aurobindo. ... Psychology (ancient Greek: psyche = soul or mind, logos/-ology = study of) is an academic and applied field involving the study of the mind, brain, and behavior, both human and nonhuman. ... Anomalous phenomena are phenomena which are observed and for which there are no suitable explanations in the context of a specific body of scientific knowledge, e. ... The Subtle physical is Sri Aurobindos term for a subtler aspect of the physical nature. ... For the article about subconscious level message delivery, see subliminal message. ...


The Psychic begins its evolution completely veiled and hidden, but as it grows through successive lifetimes it gradually exerts a greater influence, organising the elements of the being, and taking on the role of spiritual Guide (The Life Divine pp.891-4).


In Integral Yoga the goal is to move inward and discover the Psychic Being, which then can bring about a transformation of the outer nature. This transformation of the outer being or ego by the Psychic is called Psychicisation; it is one of the three necessary stages in the realisation of the Supramental consciousness. This Psychic transformation is the decisive movement that enables a never-ending progress in life through the power of connecting to one's inner spirit or Divine Essence. Integral yoga or purna yoga (Sanskrit for full or complete yoga) refers in Sri Aurobindos teachings to the union of all the parts of ones being with the Divine, and the transmutation of all of their jarring elements into a harmonious state of higher divine consciousness and existence. ... The Outer Being in Sri Aurobindos yoga and integral psychology refers to the superficial and limited surface existence which characterises our everyday consciousness and experience. ... Pychicisation is one of the most essential stages of the integral yoga of Sri Aurobindo. ... The Triple Transformation in Sri Aurobindos integral yoga refers to the two-fold movement of spiritual transformation - the inward pychicisation by which the sadhak gets in contact with the inner divine principle or Psychic Being, and the wider spiritual transformation or spiritualisation. ...


For Sri Aurobindo both Psychicisation and Spiritualisation are equally necessary, and complementary prerequistes in the drawing down of the Supermind. Spiritualisation is one of the stages in the integral yoga of Sri Aurobindo. ... Supermind in Sri Aurobindos philosophy refers to the infinite unitary Truth Consciousness or Truth-Idea beyond the three lower planes of Matter, Life, and Mind. ...


Quotes

"...the psychic entity in us persists and is fundamentally the same always: it contains all essential possibilities of our manifestation but is not constituted by them; it is not limited by what it manifests, not contained by the incomplete forms of the manifestation, not tarnished by the imperfections and impurities, the defects and depravations of the surface being. It is an ever-pure flame of the divinity in things and nothing that comes to it, nothing that enters into our experience can pollute its purity or extinguish the flame." Sri Aurobindo, The Life Divine p.891
