(During the Wednesday class)
...A supramental entity had entirely possessed me.
Something a little taller than myself: its feet extended below my feet and its head went a little beyond my head.
...A solid block with a rectangular base – a rectangle with a square base – one single piece.
...A light, not like the golden light of the Supermind: rather a kind of phosphorescence. I felt that had it been night, it would have been physically visible.
...And it was denser than my physical body: the physical body seemed to me almost unreal – as though crumbly – like sand running through your fingers.
...I would have been incapable of speaking, words seemed so petty, narrow, ignorant.
...I saw (how shall I put it?) the successive preparations which took place, in certain anterior beings, in order to achieve this.
...It felt as if I had several heads.
...The experience of February 29 was of a general nature; but this one was intended for me.
...An experience I had never had.
...I begin to see what the supramental body will be.
...I had had a somewhat similar experience at the time of the union of the supreme creative principle with the physical consciousness. But that was a subtle experience, while this was material – in the body.
...I did not have the experience, I did not look at it: I WAS it.
...And it radiated from me: myriads of little sparks that were penetrating everybody – I saw them enter into each one of those present.
...One more step.
