At the Feet of The Mother

March 21, 1914 (PM 034)

This prayer is about the attitude we should take towards outer circumstances and the true direction of our efforts.

AS each morning my aspiration rises towards Thee, and in the silence of my satisfied heart, I ask that Thy law of Love may be expressed, Thy will manifested. And in advance I give my joyful and serene adhesion to the circumstances which are to translate this law and this will.

O why be restless and demand that when oneself is concerned, things should go in a particular way and not in another! Why determine that such and such a set of circumstances shall be the best possible expression, and then throw oneself into a hard struggle so that these possibilities may be realised! Why not employ all one’s energy solely to will in the calm of an inner confidence, that it may be Thy law which triumphs everywhere and always over all difficulty, all darkness, all egoism! How the horizon widens as soon as we learn to take this attitude; how all cares cease and give place to an invariable illumination, to the omnipotence of disinterestedness! To will what Thou wiliest, O Lord, is to live constantly in communion with Thee, it is to be liberated from all contingencies, to escape from all narrowness, to fill our lungs with a pure and healthy air, to be rid of all useless fatigue, to be lightened of all cumbersome weight, in order to run with nimble steps towards the only goal which is worth attaining: the triumph of Thy divine Law!

O Lord, with what a happy confidence I salute Thee this morning.
