1 From “Prayers and Meditations” of the Mother
1.16 July 12, 1918
“O supreme and only Confidant, Thou who knowest beforehand all we can say to Thee because Thou art its source!
“O supreme and only Friend, Thou who acceptest, Thou who lovest, Thou who understandest us just as we are, because it is Thyself who hast so made us!
“O supreme and only Guide, Thou who never gain sayest our highest will because it is Thou Thyself who willest in it!
“It would be folly to seek elsewhere than in Thee for one who will listen, understand, love and guide, since always Thou art there ready to our call and never wilt Thou fail us!
“Thou hast made me know the supreme, the sublime joy of a perfect confidence, an absolute serenity, a surrender total and without reserve or colouring, free from effort or constraint.
Joyous like a child I have smiled and wept at once before Thee, O my Well-Beloved!”
