Our aim is to realize the suprahuman state by awakening and uniting the Permanent Witness with that of the highest Self.
...To pursue this path without being deflected, the first requirement is the gradual destruction of automatic behavior, by learning to recognize the drama which is fought out in a human being, to know the combatants and their weapons.
This drama is the duel between the two wills, the Personal Will and the Will to the Light.
Many human beings know nothing of this drama: those whose brain-consciousness makes so much noise that the two witnesses cannot be heard. In these, who are legion, the Automatic Self reigns uncontrolled, having nothing to restrain it but an atavistic moral sense and the conventional religious or social rules of its education. Moral problems, for such people, can only be a choice between obeying their established moral code and breaking it at the bidding of self-interest or instinct.
