The most effective way for purification for the mental being is to draw back, to stand as the passive witness and observe and know himself and the workings of Nature in the lower, the normal being; but this must be combined, for perfection, with a will to raise the purified nature into the higher spiritual being. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwsa/24/the-action-of-the-divine-shakti#p7</ref>
