Mother, now that You are not coming to the Playground for the March Past, what should be our attitude?
The same as if I were present there. In fact, I am present there more than I would be if I were there physically. For even being there physically, I might still say that I was not there, because my consciousness would go to other places of the world where I had been called or where I had some important thing to do, according to the need.
So you see, being there for the March Past, I was not actually there for the March Past…. Only, the body was there physically, and my consciousness was far away and occupied with important things to be done in the world. They saluted me, but I was not aware of what was happening. It was not so every day, but most of the days, when I had to leave because there were important things to be done, decisions to be taken.
And now it is completely different, for I am there every day for the March Past, and never do I miss it. Once I have been told the time and that my presence is essential, every day I arrange things in such a way that a part of my consciousness which has been informed awakes and automatically detaches itself from me and is present in the Playground to take the salute. It is done without thinking, or remembering but by the Consciousness that is in charge of this activity, and is present there invariably. This is how I work out the day to day things without being disturbed.
But then, you are not there with your entire consciousness, as it is only one part of it that comes?
My child, as many times as one may divide… each part of my consciousness has the same intensity or the same power as my whole consciousness. The Truth does not get diminished when it is divided. And, besides, I am present everywhere in the world, in each atom. And once I am informed, I am present there consciously. So it means that I am there, ‘doubly present’, you understand?
A Presence which is everywhere and another conscious Presence when I am informed. I am always there to watch you, and I can hear your voice very clearly when you are giving the orders. Now, tell me, at what time did you say that the March Past begins and also the Concentration, so that I may know the exact time.
At quarter past seven in the evening, there is the March Past, and at quarter to eight, the Concentration.
Well, now I will not forget. I have clearly fixed the time in the consciousness which must be present there. It is good. The order has been given.
Keep your eyes open so that you do not miss me. I shall be there present without fail.
Well. Au revoir.
Conscious… above all you must try to see me….
We shall see.
