Sample text

An analysis that restricts itself to the self ’s frontal appearance, no matter how 44 Integral Psychology thorough and microscopic this analysis may be, will fall short of a comprehensive understanding. It is only by reference to something beyond the self that the self can be understood more fully. SVABHAVA From an integral perspective, both the sense of self and the sense of continuity emanate from our psychic center, our true soul. Without reference to this eternal soul the experience of selfhood cannot be understood.

Though the inner light seems faint at first, gradually it becomes brighter. Over time, this light shines farther outward and begins to illumine our way in the outer world, even as it is still easily overshadowed by our mental patterns and emotional preferences and habits. Indeed, as we shall see, it is our wounding, our unconscious defenses, and our emotional reactivity that are the greatest barriers to the psychic light. To fully liberate this light is a goal of integral psychology. This process of psychic emergence, of living in two parallel worlds or consciousnesses, is difficult to navigate at times.

Its growth is a process of unfolding these latent powers. The psychic center is spirit in manifestation, ever alive, ever whole, ever pure, yet also progressing as it evolves new abilities out of itself. We are accustomed to think that eternal = static or pure being, but this applies only to the atman, the immobile, nonevolving portion of our spiritual nature. Eternal also can be in the mode of becoming, and it is this becoming that completes our spiritual identity and fulfills the evolutionary movement of the Divine creation.
