At the Feet of The Mother

X. 3. LETTERS. Letters to N. and S. — Inner Vision – Symbols – Colours (VI)

During the meditation, just as one can see different scenes, one can also see writings. We call these writings “inscriptions or sky-writings”. They can be seen with eyes closed or open.

*   *   *

These are symbols — a white flower is a symbol of consciousness, the sun represents Knowledge or Truth, the moon stands for the spiritual light, the star indicates creation, fire symbolises tapasya, askesis or aspiration.

Golden rose = love and surrender full of the true consciousness.

White lotus = the Mother’s Consciousness (Divine Consciousness).

The cow is a symbol of consciousness and light. A white cow means the higher pure consciousness.

The child is your psychic being who is bringing out the true things from within you — the road is that of the Higher Mind going up towards the Truth.

*   *   *

There are five fires in the Vedic sacrifice. If the five are not there, the sacrifice is incomplete. We may say that we need these five fires in the psychic, the mental, the vital, the physical and the subconscient.

*   *   *

The tree is the spiritual life within. Golden peacocks, sitting on every part of it, are symbols of victory of the Truth. The moon is the light of the spiritual force.

*   *   *

The lotus situated above the head is the centre of the Higher Consciousness. Probably this lotus wants to bloom. The spirituality that began to shine in the vital was the half moon. There had been an eclipse of the moon. The green colour means the true vital force. The sunrise here is the manifestation of the true consciousness in the vital plane.

*   *   *

The moon = spiritual light. The elephant = strength.

The golden elephant = strength of the true consciousness.

Green is the colour of the light of emotions.

*   *   *

The sun has many forms and light many colours. The sun can equally be red, golden, blue or green, etc.

Blue = higher Mind.

Sunlight = Light of Divine Truth.

Bright red = Divine Love or Force of the Higher Consciousness.

*   *   *

The upward movement of the vital being is towards the Divine and the Truth. The power of Truth (golden light) and of the Higher Mind (blue light) has manifested and is coming down and moving in that ascending vital consciousness.

*   *   *

The blue light is mine, the white light is the Mother’s. When the Higher Consciousness with its universality first begins to descend into the being, it is very natural to see blue light.

*   *   *

This is the Higher Consciousness above the mind from where peace, light, force, etc. come — the white lotus is the Mother’s Consciousness, the red lotus is my consciousness — knowledge and light of the Truth are always there.

*   *   *

Blue is the colour of the higher mind. Blue lotus: it is the opening of that higher mind in your consciousness.

*   *   *

White light is the light of the divine consciousness. Blue light is the light of the higher consciousness. The silver light is the light of spirituality.

*   *   *

The snake is a symbol of energy. A higher energy stands on the higher consciousness above the head.

*   *   *

Water is the symbol of consciousness. What rises up is desire or the askesis of consciousness.

*   *   *

It is my light if it is whitish blue. If pure blue, it is the light of the higher knowledge.

*   *   *

The significance of the colour of an orange is to have union with the Divine and to have the touch of a higher consciousness.

*   *   *

Muladhar is the inner centre of the physical. The pond is the opening or formation of consciousness. The red lotus is the symbol of Sri Aurobindo’s presence in that consciousness and the rosy light signifies the descending love in the inner physical.

*   *   *

The snake is an energy of nature. Muladhar (physical centre) is one of its main seats. It remains asleep there in a coiled state. When awakened by sadhana, it unites itself with the higher truth. With the descent of the Mother’s Force it has become golden, that is to say, filled with divine Truth.

*   *   *

All these experiences are the symbols of earthly outer nature.

Red lotus = The Divine Harmony. Blue light = The higher consciousness.

Golden Temple = The temple of the Divine Truth. Remain calm and quiet, then all these will slowly develop in your outer nature and life as well.

*   *   *

The white rose signifies loving surrender to the Mother. Its result will be the spread of light and truth in your adhara. The white lotus means the Mother’s fully awakened Consciousness on your mental plane. The red-gold is the radiance of the Supramental in the physical.
