Bernhard Guenther (www.veilofreality.com and www.bernhardguenther.com) shared words of Sri Aurobindo found in “The Integral Yoga” recently on Facebook.  Sharing them here.  The words in brackets are insertions by Bernhard, including an explanation that yoga is “spiritual practice for union with the Divine.”  It is to keep in mind that this article is includes ALL spiritual practices with the goal of union with Divine.. 

It is a fact always known to all yogis and occultists since the beginning of time, in Europe and Africa as in India, that wherever yoga [spiritual practice for union with the Divine] is done, there the hostile [hyperdimensional] Forces gather together to stop it by any means. It is known that there is a lower nature and a higher spiritual nature — it is known that they pull different ways and the lower is strongest at first and the higher afterwards. It is known that the hostile Force take advantage of the movements of the lower nature and try to spoil through them, smash or retard the siddhi. It has been said as long ago as the Upanishads (hard is the path to tread, sharp like a razor's edge); it was said later by Christ 'hard is the way and narrow the gate by which one enters into the kingdom of heaven' and also 'many are called, few chosen' - because of these difficulties. But it has also always been known that those who are sincere and faithful in heart and remain so and those who rely on the Divine will arrive in spite of all difficulties, stumbles or falls.

This yoga is a spiritual battle; its very attempt raises all sorts of adverse forces and one must be ready to face difficulties, sufferings, reverses of all sorts in a calm unflinching spirit. The difficulties that come are ordeals and tests and if one meets them in the right spirit, one comes out stronger and spiritually purer and greater. No misfortune can come, the adverse forces cannot touch or be victorious unless there is some defect in oneself, some impurity, weakness or, at the very least, ignorance. One should then seek out this weakness in oneself and correct it. When there is an attack from the human instruments of adverse forces [occult hyperdimensional forces working through other people without their awareness, used as “portals”], one should try to overcome it not in a spirit of personal hatred or anger or wounded egoism, but with a calm spirit of strength and equanimity and a call to the Divine Force to act. Success or failure lies with the Divine.

The normal resistance of the lower Nature in human beings and the action of the Hostiles are two quite different things. The former is natural and occurs in everybody; the latter is an intervention from the non-human world. But this intervention can come in two forms. (1) They use and press on the lower Nature forces making them resist where they would otherwise be quiescent, making the resistance strong or violent where it would be otherwise slight or moderate, exaggerating its violence when it is violent. There is besides a malignant cleverness, a conscious plan and combination when the Hostiles act on these forces which is not evident in the normal resistance of the forces. (2) They sometimes invade with their own forces. When this happens there is often a temporary possession or at least an irresistible influence which makes the thoughts, feelings, actions of the person abnormal — a black clouding of the brain, a whirl in the vital, all acts as if the person could not help himself and were drawn by an overmastering force. On the other hand instead of a possession there may be only a strong Influence; then the symptoms are less marked, but it is easy for anyone acquainted with the ways of these forces to see what has happened. Finally it may be only an attack, not possession or influence; the person then is separate, is not overcome, resists.

One must not get into the habit of a state in which one is always in a struggle with suggestions and forces. People very easily fall into this [victim/self-pity trap] and make it a habit — the vital part takes a sort of glowing satisfaction in crying out "I am attacked, overborne, suffering, miserable! How tragic is my fate! Why do you not help, O Divine? There is no help, nor Divine Grace? I am left to my misery and downfall etc. etc. etc." I do not want one more sadhak to fall into this condition -that is why I am calling Halt! before you get entangled into this kind of habit of constant struggle. It is what these forces want — to make you feel helpless, defeated, overcome. You must not allow it.  here are two things that make it impossible for them [the hostile forces] to succeed even temporarily in any attack on the mind or the vital — first, an entire love, devotion and confidence that nothing can shake, secondly, a calm and equality in the vital as well as in the mind which has become the fundamental character of the inner nature [zero-point non-reactive Consciousness]. Suggestions then may still come, things go wrong outside, but the being remains invulnerable. Either of these two things is sufficient in itself— and in proportion as they grow, even the existence of the hostile forces becomes less and less of a phenomenon of the inner life — though they may still be there in the outer atmosphere.

When confronted with hostile forces (human persons or spirits), first respond by breathing deeply using the trunk of your body and saying silently to yourself (one syllable on the in-breath and one syllable on the out-breath), “Center, balance.”  Also affirming (aloud when possible):  “I Am poised and centered in Divine, and nothing can disturb the calm peace of my soul.” And then continue with other “I Am” affirmations.  When convenient, as a way of self-care, run golden white light through your person in various ways with the intent to clear and to raise your frequency resonance vibration.  We have shared many such processes here on the Angel-Light Beamer and have others available in handout form.
