"The total elimination of the sex-impulse is one of the most difficult things in the yog sadhana (yogic discipline) and one must be prepared for it to take time. But its total disappearance has been achieved and a practical liberation crossed only by occasional dream-movements from the subconscient is fairly common."

"When we have passed beyond knowings, then we shall have Knowledge. Reason was the helper; Reason is the bar. When we have passed beyond willings, then we shall have Power. Effort was the helper; Effort is the bar. When we have passed beyond enjoyings, then we shall have Bliss. Desire was the helper; Desire is the bar. When we have passed beyond individualizing, then we shall be real Persons. Ego was the helper; Ego is the bar. When we have passed beyond humanity, then we shall be the Man. The Animal was the helper; the Animal is the bar. Transform reason into ordered intuition; let all thyself be light. This is thy goal. Transform effort into an easy and sovereign overflowing of the psychic-strength; let all thyself be conscious force. This is thy goal. Transform enjoying into an even and objectless ecstasy; let all thyself be bliss. This is thy goal. Transform the divided individual into the cosmic-personality; let all thyself be the highest state. This is thy goal. Transform the Animal into the Supramental Self; let all thyself be it. This is thy goal."

SUPRAMENTALIZATION

"The supramental transformation, the supramental evolution must carry with it a lifting of mind, life and body out of themselves into a greater way of being in which yet their own ways and powers would be, not suppressed or abolished, but perfected and fulfilled by the self-exceeding."

AIM

"An aimless life is always a troubled life. Every individual should have an aim. But do not forget that the quality of your aim will depend the quality of your life. Your aim should be high and wide, generous and disinterested; this will make your life precious to yourself and to others. Whatever your ideal, it cannot be perfectly realized unless you have realized perfection in yourself."

SEER VERSUS THINKER

"The consciousness of the seer, is a greater power for knowledge than the consciousness of the thinker. The perceptual power of the inner sight is greater and more direct than the perceptual power of thought:..."

OUTGROWING THE BODY-CONSCIOUSNESS

"We can arrive, via the yogic route, at a point where the preservation of the individual activities is no longer inconsistent with our comprehension of the cosmic consciousness or our attainment to the transcendent and supracosmic."

CRISIS OF MORALITY

"Humanity's true moral test, its fundamental test, consists of its attitude toward those who are at its mercy - animals. And in this respect, human kind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it."

BREAK MORBID HABITS

"All life is the play of universal forces. The individual gives a personal form to these universal forces. But he can choose whether he shall respond or not to the action of a particular force. Only most people do not really choose - they indulge the play of the forces. Your illnesses, depressions, sorrows, addictions, fears, etc, are the repeated play of such forces. It is only when one can make oneself free of them that one can be the true person and have a true life - but one can be free only by living in the Self and acting on all things from that higher poise."

Is there a thing called perfection?

What is perfection?

Who decide what is perfect and what is not?

How do you know if and when you achieved it?

Hello Papa.

Yeah, how about lunch?

It's lunch time, here.

I am going out. I am in the process of finalizing a deal for the outright purchase of a large and well developed verdant estate on the outskirts of Mumbai. The owner is a wealthy Mumbai-based businessman. If I manage to acquire the property, I may shift there on weekends or later in life I may shift there permanently. The place is really beautiful.

Bye.

Leaving for the meeting. Will be back in three hours. Hope I clinch the deal today itself since he is showing signs of giving in to my offer.

You are impersonally "blaming the victim" . Not nice, and not 100% correct.
And I still think you are promoting Nazi philosophy. Everytime I give you an opp to refute this, you reinforce it instead.
And it sounds like a threw in a little Ayn Rand just to be an extra nice guy.
