Supermind’s Second Poise Develops Multiplicity within Unity

The second poise of the Supermind both contains from the standpoint of the Unity, and apprehends the movement into the creation of forms, whereby the multiplicity is developed and manifested. It maintains its awareness of Oneness, even when distributing itself into the forms of the Multiplicity, and each element of the manifestation would maintain its inherent complete knowledge of the Oneness. This is the stage of manifestation of the individual soul-form, the “jivatman”. The various forms would enjoy their differences in terms of action, even while appreciating their ultimate Unity.

It is in this poise of the Supermind that we see the creative expression that allows the Sat-Chit-Ananda to manifest forms without being separated from those forms. The forms themselves still maintain their awareness of the source and at the same time find the enjoyment of exploring the differences in characteristic action and viewpoint developed through this manifestation process.
