As I wrote about back on Melting the Body, the process of purification and clarity moves from our becoming a good reflector of consciousness into the mind, senses, emotions, then physical body.
Enlightenment is just the beginning. As that awakening becomes more embodied, the laws of nature that create the appearance of this physical form are also awakened. They then shift from having a fixed, rigid role to becoming more fluid.
Apparently, Sri Aurobindo spoke of waking the bodies cells. I suspect he was referring to the same thing.
While they still sustain this body, those devata (laws of nature) are no longer restricted to an individual person. They regain their cosmic nature and universal reality as the flows of qualities of the divine. Instead of embodying a person, they embody the divine.
Just consider the difference between an apparent individual awakening and all the many subcomponents of that also waking up. As this happens cosmically, the influence continues to expand. It leads to a fluidity that can adjust appearance on demand. Recently Lorne Hoff spoke of the laws of nature adjusting to the person we’re with, for example.
To one perspective, this awakening of all points means awakening the world. The body is the world. To another perspective, consciousness is already fully awake so it is only embodying that.
This reminds me of a theme in the film Lucy. While the movie is quite violent, underlying the story is what happens when you unlock more and more of your brains potential. As the brain is just a receiver for mind, and mind is the lively surface of consciousness, it’s more a question of what happens when we unlock more of our natural potential.
