The desire for expansion is an innate desire. It cannot be suppressed, but must be given full scope for expression. Since desire for expansion is harmful when limited to the material sphere, it should be diverted to unlimited objects, and this will not create conflict amongst individuals.
While running after acquisition of finite objects, dissatisfied people of the past realized one day that their minds were looking for something that had hitherto eluded them. Psychic objects are limited by nature, but the Entity who is the subject of the mind is unlimited. The final establishment in that Entity alone is the real expansion, the supreme fulfillment of sadhana. One day, while moving along the path of pratisanchara (many to one) towards the Supreme Subject, some attained Him. Actually, it not proper to say they “attained” him, because one only attains an object with the help of the mind.
When one attains the Supreme Subject the small-i loses itself completely in Him. Neither mind nor words can attain Him; they merge in Him. One does not “get” Him; one becomes one with Him. In the process of expansion, clashes occur between the boundary of one object and that of another object.
In the case of mundane objects, it is impossible to expand without encroaching upon the boundaries of other objects. This clash over boundaries brings out the worst in human beings – narrow-mindedness, greed, casteism, provincialism and nationalism, for instance – as they strive to establish themselves in the empire of the universe.
Those who are bound by these sentiments deny the existence of the Absolute Entity. Even if they set out with a goal before them, their love for crude desires grows so intense that their goal becomes totally obscured. Such people are called mohandha, blindly infatuated. Those who are moving will have to think constantly of their goal, not of their movement, and certainly not about the probable obstacles they may encounter along the way. If one thinks of obstacles, the obstacles themselves become one’s goal, and the actual goal is relegated to the background.
In Brahmn sadhana, only Brahmn is the goal, to be meditated upon. Spiritual aspirants need to focus upon the supreme culminating point. Brahmn Sadhana is entirely different from jada sadhana — the pursuit of matter — because it focuses on the goal and not the clash. Spiritual aspirants who struggle to expand the self should never compromise themselves with those forces that try to thwart the process of supreme
