At the Feet of The Mother

All is a Single Plan (GS 029)

But Savitri replied to mighty Death:
“My heart is wiser than the Reason’s thoughts,
My heart is stronger than thy bonds, O Death.

It sees and feels the one Heart beat in all,
It feels the high Transcendent’s sunlike hands,
It sees the cosmic Spirit at its work;
In the dim Night it lies alone with God.

My heart’s strength can carry the grief of the universe
And never falter from its luminous track,
Its white tremendous orbit through God’s peace.

It can drink up the sea of All-Delight
And never lose the white spiritual touch,[p.635]
The calm that broods in the deep Infinite.”

He said, “Art thou indeed so strong, O heart,
O soul, so free? And canst thou gather then
Bright pleasure from my wayside flowering boughs,
Yet falter not from thy hard journey’s goal,
Meet the world’s dangerous touch and never fall?

Show me thy strength and freedom from my laws.”

But Savitri answered, “Surely I shall find
Among the green and whispering woods of Life
Close-bosomed pleasures, only mine since his,
Or mine for him, because our joys are one.

And if I linger, Time is ours and God’s,
And if I fall, is not his hand near mine?

All is a single plan; each wayside act
Deepens the soul’s response, brings nearer the goal.”

[Savitri, pp. 635-336]

There is nothing sentimental in the true weeping that comes from the soul. All that you feel now is the blossoming of the psychic being in you and the growth of a real bhakti.
