Circling back to the ways the transcendent Ego was permeating Nathaniel’s life, he expresses his own drive toward “improving the relationship of [one’s own] consciousness to reality.” As a teacher this guided much of his writing either implicitly or explicitly. As an individual this has resulted in a progressive openness to all of the phases of his life, an integration of the many threads that had been woven. Nathaniel then shares one welcome side-effect of all of this: he glows in the dark. The radiance of the Self is shining through and people simply notice it.
