At the Feet of The Mother

January 31, 1914 (PM 024)

This prayer reveals to us the truth about determinism, destiny and the highest attitude.

January 31, 1914

MAY every morning our thought rise with fervour towards Thee, asking Thee what is the best we can do to manifest and serve Thee. May at each moment amid the many kinds of multiple choice which we can make and which, in spite of their apparent insignificance, are always of a great importance — since according to our decision we submit to one category of determinism or another — may at each moment our attitude be such that it may be Thy divine will which determines our choice and thus it may be Thou who givest the direction to all our life. According to the consciousness in which we are at the moment when we take a decision, we submit to the determinism of the order of the realities in which we are conscious; whence all the consequences, often unforeseen and unfortunate, contradictory to the general orientation of life and forming obstacles, sometimes terrible, which have afterwards to be surmounted. We would, therefore, O Lord, Divine Master of love, be conscious of Thee and Thee alone, be identified with Thy supreme law each time that we decide, each time we choose, so that it may be Thy Will which determines us; and our life may thus be effectively and integrally consecrated to Thee.

In Thy light we shall see, in Thy knowledge we shall know, in Thy will we shall realise.”


The text above is quoted from the Third Edition, 1954 (translation by Rishabhchand Samsukha)

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.
