Ned Says: December 6th, 2006 at 10:38 am Guys — I hope I’m not intruding. My whole take on these things isn’t coming out of any book, it’s coming purely out of experience. In my personal experience, equality is totally consistent with hierarchy (I’m mostly inspired by Aurobindo here). Higher Light respects lower Light and lower Light trusts higher Light. *At the soul-level*, there is total equality (per Aurobindo’s notion of the Psychic Being as a dynamic, evolving spark of the Divine).Meaning what? Meaning all we have to do is develop the psychic and live in it. Everything will fall into place automatically. Higher Light will automatically take the lead (without having to announce to the world that it’s taking the lead). Nothing needs to be said or done. Everything will be painless and harmonious and blissful.I love Aurobindo’s notion of soul-level equality. This is not superficial, mental-level ideological egalitarianism. It’s a Reality we have to become aware of. Soon, someone else will develop even more than the present “leader” so no one person can remain the “leader” forever. There is no point in getting stuck on who is higher or lower. The hierarchies are also shifting and in flux from moment to moment. All our idols will be smashed one by one as we walk the Path.
