… it is a long process and one needs patience and perseverance. It takes time, sometimes a really long time, and one has to keep applying the will with faith and surrender. Eventually the breakthrough comes and instead of being a slave of nature one becomes its master.
The first and most indispensable element, its ‘central key’ as Sri Aurobindo succinctly put it, is to open to the Mother with a psychic attitude of faith, devotion and surrender. If this can be done with sufficient sincerity then nothing else may be needed. This alone is more than enough
So far we have played the game unconsciously. But a time comes when we become conscious and discover Them everywhere, in this body and other bodies and beyond all bodies, a luminous and mighty Presence, eternal, all-pervading, Alone.
More and more souls are now ready or getting ready, having gone through the long process of evolution, to evolve under the direct sunlight of the Divine Consciousness. They need neither the brilliant veil woven by the gods nor the shadow that holds us back and strengthens our roots in matter until we are ready to climb further.
All that is needed now is to have faith and endurance and go on until the victory that has been won in principle is generalized in each and every detail of the individual existence and the collective life of humanity.
The 2nd December program, where the young and old, children and elders, students and inmates of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram and the SAICE participate together is to remind us of this tremendous work that we as children of earth in our bodies and children of Divine Mother in our souls have inherited.
In the death tremendous hour when Sri Aurobindo withdraws leaving the Mother in our hearts and Savitri in our hands, the Mother formally inaugurates the Sri Aurobindo memorial as a university center in his Name. Soon thereafter there is going to be the Supramental manifestation.
[…] the Mother had already started working upon a new strategy for the Divine Victory. The coming of children during the war provided this opportunity and though the Ashram School took roots unofficially somewhere around 1943, it was officially made known to the world in 1952. Thus began the next phase of the Divine experiment in the Divine laboratory.
During the Second World War families came seeking refuge at the Feet of the Divine Mother. But as is Her Way, the Divine Mother turned this challenge into a divine opportunity to initiate a new project of preparing the children for the coming Future.
The Ashram and the School are held together by the power of Her Love. This is the secret Power of transformation that is ever at work in this geographically small but psychologically immense field of spiritual evolution created by the Mother.
Some reflections on the Ashram School on its 75th Anniversary. Parts One “A New Creation” and Two “The making of God in Earth”.
Surrender to the Divine Being (in our yoga to the Divine Mother in Her embodiment) makes the process safe and the journey smooth.
During his years of self-imposed seclusion in Pondichery, Sri Aurobindo was engaged in tapasya whose results were to have far reaching consequences on humanity.
The problem of corruption and evil is neither confined to our immediate neighborhood nor to a particular period of Time. While it is alright to find some immediate short-term solutions, we must not lose sight of the deeper reasons and radical remedies needed for this.
