many or most it will seem impossible. All the established forces
              of the ordinary ignorant world-consciousness are opposed to

              it and deny it and try to prevent it, and the sadhak will find his
              own mind, life and body full of the most obstinate impediments
              to its realisation. If you can accept the ideal whole-heartedly,

              face all the difficulties, leave the past and its ties behind you
              and are ready to give up everything and risk everything for this
              divine possibility, then only can you hope to discover by experi-
              ence the Truth behind it.
                  The sadhana of this Yoga does not proceed through any set
              mental teaching or prescribed forms of meditation, mantras or
              others, but by aspiration, by a self-concentration inwards or up-

              wards, by self-opening to an Influence, to the Divine Power above
              us and its workings, to the Divine Presence in the heart, and by
              the rejection of all that is foreign to these things. It is only by
              faith, aspiration and surrender that this self-opening can come.

              Aim of the Integral Yoga
                  The aim of the Yoga is to open the consciousness to the
              Divine, to live in the inner consciousness more and more while
              acting from it on the external life, to bring the inmost psychic
              into the front and by the power of the psychic to purify and
              change the being so that it may become ready for transforma-
              tion and in union with the Divine Knowledge, Will and Love.
              Secondly, to develop the Yogic consciousness — i.e. to univer-
              salise the being on all the planes, become aware of the cos-
              mic being and cosmic forces and be in union with the Divine
              on  all  the planes up  to  the  Overmind. Thirdly,  to  come  into
              contact with the transcendent Divine, beyond the Overmind,
              through  the  supramental  consciousness,  supramentalise  the
              consciousness and the nature and make oneself an instrument
              for the realisation of the dynamic Divine Truth and its trans-
              forming descent into the earth-nature.            CWSA 29:19-20
