Always to follow Thee, to shape myself into Thy image, always to keep me full of Thyself, to lay my heart’s homage at Thy feet, that is my only tapasya, I know nothing else, I have no other rule or principle.
In Thyself, Mother, Thou hast made Truth concrete, real, tangible to us; we can see it, follow it, live it. By identifying myself with Thee, I shall be identified with the Truth; Thou wilt lift me to Thy own height and give me Thy own status. That is the ideal of my sadhana, Mother; I know no other method or ideal.
That I still commit mistakes and errors, that I still fall into falsehood shows that my sadhana is not yet perfect. When every cell in my body, every idea in my mind, will know Thee and consciously follow Thy will, only then shall I rise above all error, all untruth. My whole being will be turned towards Thee, my mind will remain filled with Thy light, my heart will remain filled with the joy of Thy intimate touch and the members of my body will automatically carry on Thy work in Thy way — that is the state for which I’ am constantly aspiring, Mother.
