One of the profound principles that Karmayogi has revealed to us is that each thing that occurs in life is indicated beforehand. And there are no exceptions. A powerful positive or negative outcome in the future is always indicated by a small or large event earlier on. Thus, if we are conscious of the predecessor (whether or not we perceive it as such), any great negative can be avoided later on. I.e. We can simply consecrate the small negative condition that comes to our attention, and the larger problem will not arise in future.
Also when our consciousness is centered more deeply within, we will perceive such small indicators as pregnant with potentiality, whereas living on the surface misses these subtle warnings.
And yet even if we fail to recognize and consecrate such predecessors when they arise and were then effected negatively affected, we can still practice "past consecrate" to overcome its continued influence in the present.
In the Trollope novel 'Lady Anna' a young woman on a date with her cousin seriously injures her leg while walking across pods of stones on a pond. It would turn out to be a predecessor and harbinger of this man's later complicity in trying to murder her and her beloved.
This dynamic also occurs and is discussed several times by the team in Garry Jacobs' novel 'The Book.'
Physical immortality is something different from immortality of our true self, our evolving soul, our psychic being, which is the unending existence of our being through multiple births. Physical immortality is where we are able to live as long as we choose in the physical body. This will be possible when the cellular essence of our being is responsive to the descending or evoked Spiritual Force, and therefore the body's programming will change so that there will no longer be illness, decay, and death.
The Mother worked on this transformational issue for much of Her life, enabling the cells of Her body to be responsive to the incoming supramental power, forging a path for us to follow. She indicated that Sri Aurobindo or perhaps someone else would return with a New Body that is supramentalized with the capacity of willed physical immortality. That New Person would have centers of consciousness instead of the current organs, digestive systems, fluid and breath circulation, et al. She described this being as tall, svelte, sexless, emanating light, which would be an evolutionary change into a new-type of human species.
Mother had many visions and personal experiences in this area. For example, once She saw Her own body become the supramental being at the subtle plane. She actually, physically saw it. Dozens of these sorts of experiences of Hers are described in great detail by Her in Her 4000 page diary called Agenda.
Most of us don't ordinarily associate Spirit with accomplishment. The Divine appears to exist in one realm, and accomplishment and success in another.
