Vedanta and Other Paths of Self-Realisation 
The following doubt came to me: “Is not the realisation of the Self sufficient? Hearing about your yoga, a Vedantin who sought the Self might say that it was only because you had not reached the highest that you wanted to do something on earth by means of the divine power, but that this aim had to be rejected before one could reach the highest.”
These doubts come from the mind – for which action is inferior to thought and thought itself something that comes out from the Silence. It cannot understand the supramental view of things in which there is no division or opposition between the Supreme Existence and the supreme Power that sees, thinks, acts and creates.
