In Sri Aurobindo's view, Man, at present, lives mostly in his surface mind, life, and body. There is an inner being within which pushes him to a constant pursuit of a greater beauty, harmony, power, and knowledge. He has to awake to the greater possibilities of this inner being and purify and orient by its drive towards the Truth the rest of the nature. There can follow afterwards an opening upward to the several ranges of consciousness between the ordinary human mind and the Supramental Truth-Consciousness, and their power brought down into the mind, life, and body. This will enable the full power of the Truth-Consciousness to work in the nature.
