b. Immediate task to become aware of Overself
"The immediate task is to become increasingly aware of the Overself's presence, or, if you are working under a master, of the master's presence in your own heart."
(Notebooks of Paul Brunton, vol.23, chapter 6, number 238)
all other tasks are mediated. The only access to Overself, to true
inner self is and must be unmediated - how can there be any relationship
but identity to that authentic subject? The presence of the master is analogous
- it's not the master him/herself that one is to be immediately aware of,
but rather their presence - which is the aura of their own higher self.
