The manifestation of the love of the Divine in the world was the great holocaust, the supreme self-giving. The Perfect Consciousness accepted to be merged and absorbed into the unconsciousness of matter, so that consciousness might be awakened in the depths of its obscurity and little by little a Divine Power might rise in it and make the whole of this manifested universe a highest expression of the Divine Consciousness and the Divine Love.

There is concealed behind individual love, obscured by its ignorant human figure, a mystery which the mind cannot seize, the mystery of the body of the Divine, the secret of a mystic form of the Infinite which we can approach only through the ecstasy of the heart and the passion of the pure and sublimated sense, and its attraction which is the call of the divine Flute-player, the mastering compulsion of the All- Beautiful can only be seized and seize us through an occult love and yearning which in the end makes one the Form and the Formless, and identifies Spirit and Matter. It is that which the spirit in Love is seeking here in the darkness of the Ignorance and it is that which it finds when individual human love is changed into the love of the Immanent Divine incarnate in the material universe.

SRI AUROBINDO, The Synthesis of Yoga, I, ch. VI.

 

The world is a masked form of Sachchidananda, and ,the nature of the consciousness of Sachchidananda, and therefore the thing in which His force must always find and achieve itself is divine Bliss, an omnipresent self-delight.. ..To seek for delight is therefore the fundamental impulse and sense of Life ; to find and possess and fulfil it is its whole motive But where in us is this principle of Delight ? ...That term is something in us which we sometimes call, in a special sense, the soul-that is to say, the psychic entity which is not the life or the mind, much less the body, but which holds in itself the opening and flowering of the essence of all these to their own peculiar delight of self, to light, to love, to joy and beauty and to a refined purity of being.
