About Savitri | B1C1-15 Action of the Grace (pp.7-8)


A fire has come and touched men’s hearts and gone;
A few have caught flame and risen to greater life.
Too unlike the world she came to help and save,
Her greatness weighed upon its ignorant breast,
And from its dim chasms welled a dire return,
A portion of its sorrow, struggle, fall.
To live with grief, to confront death on her road,—
The mortal’s lot became the Immortal’s share.
Thus trapped in the gin of earthly destinies,
Awaiting her ordeal’s hour abode,
Outcast from her inborn felicity,
Accepting life’s obscure terrestrial robe,
Hiding herself even from those she loved,
The godhead greater by a human fate.

It is to make humanity understand that a greater Purity, a greater Force, a greater Knowledge and a greater Ananda can be acquired through struggle and pain, suffering and difficulty than through an easy and smooth life.
It is not the cause of the difficulties, but it is the result. That is to say, that it would be a mistake to believe that these difficulties have been created in order to bring this more marvellous result. No. But, according to the action of the Grace, the difficulties having happened, the Grace change them in means of greater results. That is the attitude to be taken towards life as it is, and it will allow the Grace to give Its maximum of help and result.
That is why one can always say, “From the worst the best will arise”. Not that we must purposely bring or attract the worst. But, when we are faced by it, we must keep this faith and go on without hesitation, without fear, losing never an absolute quiet and sure faith.

It is not the personality, the character that is of the first importance in rebirth — it is the psychic being who stands behind the evolution of the nature and evolves with it.
