Hi Rich,

I sort of agree with you - in so far as our essential nature is 'THAT', then
there is nothing to be achieved.  Our esential nature always is that which
'IT IS'.  But there seems to be more doesn't there when we consider the
nature of the Monadic evolution, the importance of acquiring Manas, 'self
consciousness' and so on?

Would it be 'better' to say that we need to merge this faculty of
'SELF-awareness' (Manas united to Atma-Buddhi) into Nirvana?  And that this
is what we need to achieve as a "universal brotherhood" in this Manvatara?
