As our surrender attains some perfection even without coming to an absolute condition as a crowning movement, as a marvellous gift of heaven , a veil is lifted from our consciousness. It is the veil of ignorance which kept hidden until now the face of Truth, in the words of Sri Aurobindo “all is now God and Sky.”  The Supreme One has revealed Himself to our soul. All we see, all we feel here, perceive, seize with our thought, with the silence of our soul, all is truly a supremely conscious Being, His Substance eternal, The limitless ocean of a boundless conscious Being and Existence. The veil of disfiguring names and forms, the veil of distorting feelings, sensations, thoughts and perceptions are gradually torn away from our soul. There is left the infinite Ocean and ourselves as some magic drops of water in the bosom of the Ocean, indivisibly one with the Ocean yet enjoying a active personal existence. A cell one with the body yet enjoying its boundless unity from a little corner of Infinity. All is verily Brahman. Wherever we turn our eyes in all forms, in all objects, in all movements, in all events and circumstances, we meet the Eternal. We are delivered from the ignorance, the darkness and the endless suffering, once and for all. We live constantly in His Presence through all, in spite of all, beyond all, until nothing is left in our consciousness which is not Divine, which does not see everything as Divine. We live constantly in His Presence in union with the supreme Mother Consciousness and grow more and more, endlessly more and more conscious of the Divine and His unfathomable Infinities.

This third stage of self-surrender leading to the complete unveiling of the Divine in our consciousness has three progressive stages.

In the beginning we begin to feel, perceive and truly see the Divine in each object and in each thing, in the tiniest conceivable particle of force and in the most stupendous system of universes. We see the Divine as the animating Fire, the supreme Source in each object and being and force.

In the second stage, our vision deepens. We become aware that the Divine is not only the animating Fire, the Source that inspires, sustains and gives life and forms to each object and being, but He is the constituting substance of everything, of every name and form, everything is made out of an infinite eternal divine substance of Consciousness, light and delight. We begin to feel every name and form as a fixity of a magic moment, of this eternal Divine Consciousness. We see nothing but the Divine in all forms and movements. Everything is mysterious yet very intimate to our being and consciousness. We are no longer haunted by separation, division, and death has no fear for us anymore. The Divine is all. Everything is in the Divine, there is no coming, there is no going. It is only a change of poise of the Divine in movement. 

this perception and experience deepen on the crest of Felicity, we are admitted into an unbelievable, inconceivable splendor of divine beauty, harmony and perfection. All that we have experienced before becomes dull and drab and practically a state of inconsciousness compared to this glory. Everything in existence, from the tiniest meadow flower to the most resplendent form of Godhead, takes on another light, another lustre, another fathomless effulgence and perfection. Everything becomes perfect, perfect, absolutely perfect at each instant. There is nothing more to be attained, :  whatever exists, whatever moves through eternity is absolutely perfect with all the hidden absoluteness manifested in all the forms. It is a succession of magnificent dawns. There is no sense of movement from inferior perfection to a superior perfection. The Divine is utterly perfect at every instant in everything. There is nothing to accomplish for He is ever fulfilled. There is only an eternal miraculous succession of absolutely perfect self-revelations.

But for this God-state to be achieved, even partially, there has to be an immense transformation of our life, mind, soul and body. This state takes us away once and for all definitively, conclusively from the state of ignorance and division to the utter fullness of Divine Existence. But then when we will be there, we will perceive a goal still more mysterious and marvellous, beckoning us from the irresistible Beyond.
