II. CONCEPTUAL FORMULATIONS

17. THE PROCESS OF TRANSFORMATION

The process of transformation requires individualization as a foundation. It is the process whereby separative, self-centered individuals ó often still bound to or rebelling against their natal cultures, are mostly in a state of disarray and disintegration, their myths, symbols, and images having lost the power to wholesomely integrate the collective psychism and their way of life breaking down ó reorient their minds and feeling-natures toward an awareness of the primacy of the whole and consecrate themselves to the service of humanity. This does not, however, mean that they must "save the world" or "do good" for others; it means that they must, first, consciously attune themselves to the performance of their own dharma, on behalf of the greater whole, archetypal Man, which is trying to contact them.
      While the process of transformation has immense psychological implications, for Rudhyar it is essentially an occult process often called "the Path." It is supported by well-organized (but historically ignored, materialized, or psychologized) spiritual and metaphysical forces. Its goal is the transindividual level ó Pleroma consciousness.
