“The psychic being is described in the Upanishads as no bigger than the size of one’s thumb! That of course is a symbolic image. For usually when one sees anybody’s psychic being in a form, it is bigger than that.”
- “Nirodbaran: Sometimes one feels a sort of love for everybody; though the feeling lasts only for a few seconds, it gives a great joy.
Sri Aurobindo: That is a wave from the psychic.”
“Ultimately it becomes a completely conscious individual being, master of itself and moved exclusively by the divine Will. That is to say, an individual expression of the Supreme. This is what we call the ‘psychic being’.
Generally speaking, those who practice yoga have either a fully developed, independent psychic being which has taken birth again to do the Divine's work, or else a psychic being in its last incarnation wanting to complete its development and realize itself. This is what aspires, this is what has the contact.”
