About Savitri | B1C1-10 The Response of Earth (p.5)


Here where our half-lit ignorance skirts the gulfs
On the dumb bosom of the ambiguous earth,
Here where one knows not even the step in front
And Truth has her throne on the shadowy back of doubt,
On this anguished and precarious field of toil
Outspread beneath some large indifferent gaze,
Impartial witness to our joy and bale,
Our prostrate soil bore the awakening ray.
Here too the vision and prophetic gleam
Lit into miracles common meaningless shapes;
Then the divine afflatus, spent, withdrew,
Unwanted, fading from the mortal’s range.

According to that He seems to say that a Ray of Knowledge, of Light, of Truth came down upon earth and was so badly received, transformed in such a commonplace thing that simply withdrew.
This Ray from above changed into prophetic gleam, changed into miracles even the most common meaningless shapes. But then, finding no response, It withdrew, unwanted, fading.
Many times this happened before It could come and stay. At least something like a response was needed to keep It. And It came many times, waking up the smallest thing, and then having not sufficient response It withdrew. Then, long periods of preparation, slow dull preparation; then, many times, an attempt to descend — a Ray — and things are lit up and suddenly they seem marvellous. But, so many times they fell back in their usual, normal, meaningless ways.
But now, this time, there is a response — something seems ready and we will witness the beginning of the change.
So we have only to be attentive, to be awake, to look, and we shall see the beginning of things.
Something is beginning to change in the world and, as He says, when it is like that, even the smallest thing becomes a living miracle.
