What is the Supermind? Supermind is the highest level of mind, closest to the Creator. Sri Aurobindo has spoken of the Supermind as God's vast realm. The Supermind is a highly elevated plane of mind and personality, at once within us and around us. It is the locale of goodness and altruism. It is the storehouse of the vast powers of Nature that we contain. It is our potential.The Supermind is the location of origin, where creation is created and thoughts are thought. Thus, the Supermind is a reflection of the God-Mind. We can achieve this through aspiration, training and exercise in the control of mind. We accomplish this when we teach the personality to surrender to a higher authority, to lay aside its ego and to open to the Divine message. When this is realized, we see more and more of the Higher World(s). We learn what it is to live in these regions. Some of this information is now becoming available to our culture as we learn more about past lives, out-of-body experiences and near-death happenings. These experiences are accompanied by feelings of awe, bliss, beneficence, all of which describe the ambience of the Higher Range, are and what we have learned, we let others stand on our shoulders making their journey easier, their height higher, and their vision wider. We transmit; we radiate our experience.
