At the Feet of The Mother

May 13, 1914 (PM 052)

This prayer teaches us how to wait upon the Lord in all our actions.

May 13, 1914

THIS somnolence of my thought, O Lord, Thou wilt shake off so that I may have knowledge and understand the experience Thou hast given to my being. When something in me puts a question to Thee, always Thou repliest, and when it is necessary that I should know something, Thou teachest it to me, either directly or indirectly.

I see more and more that all impatient revolt, all haste would be useless; everything is organised slowly that I may serve Thee as I should. What is my place in this service? For a long time past I do not ask. What does it matter! Is it necessary to know whether one is at the centre or on the periphery? Provided that, entirely consecrated to Thee, living only for Thee and by Thee, I do better and better the work Thou givest me, all the rest has no importance at all. I would say more: provided Thy work is done in the world as well and as completely as it can be, what matters the individual or the group that realises this work?

O my sweet Master, in peace, serenity and equanimity, I give myself and I melt in Thee, my thought calm and tranquil, and my heart smiling; Thy work will be done, I know, and Thy victory is certain.

O my sweet Master, grant to all the sovereign boon of Thy illumination!”

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.
