In Part 4 of this seven-part lecture series, Lynda Lester presents "Our Many Selves: Moving toward Mastery of Our Complex Nature" at Sri Aurobindo Sadhana Peetham in Lodi, CA.
"Sri Aurobindo says that it is part of the foundation of yoga to become conscious of the ‘embarrassing complexity’ of our nature. We are composed not of one but many personalities, and each has its own complex individuality independent of the rest. These parts do not agree with each other and in our surface being are mixed in a jumble.
“In this talk we will look at the physical, vital, and mental parts of our nature to identify both their true functioning and their wrong functioning as imposed by the separative ignorance. We will explore two processes that are helpful in mastering and transforming these parts: identification with the witness consciousness, which brings equality and liberation, and identification with the soul (psychic being), which brings an intimate union with the Divine and a discerning vision of truth."
