'The true law of our development and the entire object of our social existence can only become clear to us when we have discovered not only, like modern Science, what man has been in his past physical and vital evolution, but his future mental and spiritual destiny and his place in the cycles of Nature. . . . in his subjective return inward he gets back to himself, back to the root of his living and infinite possibilities, and the potentiality of a new and perfect self-creation begins to widen before him. He discovers his real place in Nature and opens his eyes to the greatness of his destiny.' - p. 68
I have been very impressed also by the writings of Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet (a resident of Tamil Nadu, India for 36 years). Not everyone in the Integral Yoga community would agree, but there are many who feel that she is a true Rishi furthering the Supramental and Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. She is particularly interested in the process by which people and nations find their true place in the cycles of nature and time. See: The Written Works of Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet Om Shakti
