At the Feet of The Mother

April 19, 1914 (PM 045)

This prayer reveals to us the twin requirements of work and contemplation.

April 19, 1914

THERE is a great difference between being active in an external action, even while keeping our thought constantly fixed on Thee, and entering into that perfect union with Thee which leads to what I have called “the absolute Consciousness, the true Omniscience, the Knowledge”. When we act, even with our thought fixed on Thee, we are like a blind man walking on the road, with a sense of the direction, but knowing nothing of the way he follows and of the precise manner in which he should walk on it so as to avoid neglecting anything. In the other case, on the contrary, there is the clear vision in the full light, the utilisation of the smallest opportunity, the plenitude of action, the maximum of result. And if the first attitude is indispensable before attaining to the other, we must not at any moment cease to work, to make an effort to attain to the perfect communion.

But my heart is at peace, my thought free from impatience, and I give myself to Thy will with the smiling confidence of a child.

May Thy peace reign over all.

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.
