It is the expansion, illumination, and manipulation of the subtle physical body that most swiftly draws more and more and more of the fourth body into the system. And that’s one of the dynamics of Shaktipat is the illumination and expansion of the second body, the subtle body. It increases the draw of the fourth body into the three relative bodies. Thus the relationship between the student and the teacher – by expanding the subtle body can cause your system to draw more and more of the fourth body, the formless consciousness of the fourth body, into it. The energy does all the work.
The spiritual teacher is kind of like an electrician. As more and more of the pure formless ocean of consciousness is drawn into the drop of the individual, the more they will become like the ocean. It’s just a matter of time where you get that inevitable point of critical mass. The ocean becomes the drop and the drop becomes the ocean.
