A Christian Critique of Sri Aurobindo's Teaching
I wanted for a long time already post this letter from Aurobindo and elaborate it, so that everybody can understand it. It is about the intermediate spiritual zone, the spiritual zone beyond the human consciousness and lower than the union with God. It is about the dangers and illusions that await us there, and that we have to manage to deal with. Originaly written to his disciples, i think it is of global spiritual merit too. I think this is a "Must Read" for every higher developped spiritual person. especially i hope it is for good value here for samson and mark. With a little googling one can find some explanation for not so easyly understandable expressions.

Here the text of "The Intermediate Zone" :

Btw, i want now say "good bye" here on this board. I want to thank for all helpfull hints i got here, especially the postings of Faustina and Shasha.

I wish and hope that you all will take a big bath in Gods Mercy, (the new era of Christianity!) .
Thanks, and God Bless !

Mark, as Tevye says in "Fiddler on the Roof," "How often does a man get a compliment like that?" Wink

I know you don't give priority to the relationship between theology, spirituality and mysticism like I do, nor see the importance of this. That's fine, really.

. . . especially the postings of Faustina and Shasha.

Bliss, they didn't post anything on this discussion thread. I'm not sure what you're referring to, here.

I think bliss is referring to their general contribution at shalomplace. We may have seen the last of our blissful friend.
