Our first decisive step out of our human intelligence, our normal mentality,is an ascent into a higher Mind, a mind no longer of mingled light and obscurity or half-light, but a large clarity of the Spirit. Its basic substance is a unitarian sense of being with a powerful multiple dynamisation capable of the formation of a multitude of aspects of knowledge, ways of action, forms and significances of becoming, of all of which there is a spontaneous inherent knowledge.
Higher Mind is one of the planes of the spiritual mind, the first and lowest of them.

The world of the Higher Mind is above those directly connected with the body-consciousness.

An opening into this Higher Mind is usually accompanied by a silence of the ordinary mental thought.

A cosmic Thought spreads out its vastitudes;
Its smallest parts are here philosophies
Challenging with their detailed immensity,
Each figuring an omniscient scheme of things.
But higher still can climb the ascending light.
