Thought Seeks the Absolute

  • Thought seeks the Absolute, intellectuality needs oneness, Sri Aurobindo says.
  • Thought is at all levels, even as every other Aspect is.
  • Thought is mind in action for understanding.
  • Higher mind understands by Silence without resorting to thought.
  • A wild stretch of significant sense can make thought the activity of the mental plane for its effective existence.
  • Each plane has its own activity that makes it effective. In that sense, it can be called the thought equivalent of that plane.
  • Thus, non-movement in matter, feeling in the vital, vision in the illumined mind, intuition in the intuitive mind, knowledge in the Overmind, determinism in the Supermind, Ananda, Consciousness and Existence in the respective planes are the respective attributes.
  • Brahman has no attributes, by virtue of being Brahman.
  • Thought that can conceive of a plane of no attributes thinks of the Absolute.
  • Partial thought cannot conceive of Brahman.
  • Complete thought can conceive and explain Brahman. That thought which can be used to explain Brahman is the thought in the mind that represents Brahman there.
  • Thought that sees Brahman incapable of manifesting in the world, incapable of determinism, that considers Brahman aloof is incomplete and cannot express Brahman.
  • Thought that sees Brahman capable of expressing in the world, capable of determinism, capable of FREEDOM is the thought that can express and explain Brahman.
  • Such a thought does not conceive of Brahman as a Void or Nihil, but consider the Void as one that contains ALL.
  • It is an all-inclusive thought available for an all-inclusive concentration.
  • Such a thought does not hanker after that which has left one on its own or was sent away because its role was over.
