The souls freedom n

“The Soul’s Freedom” – Nolini Kanta Gupta

Now at present it all depends on how much the earth-consciousness has received, imbibed or assimilated of the Divine Presence. If we continue to be the old stock with no or little change, well, we shall have to wait perhaps for another million years.

The Basis (new)

“The Basis of Unity” – Nolini Kanta Gupta

Nature demanded of [India] that she should discover a greater secret of human unity and through progressive experiments apply and establish it in fact.

intensity without Impatience

“Intensity without Impatience” – Nolini Kanta Gupta

… as the Mother points out, impatience leads to imitation. This is especially so when we seek an experience; it may be a vision of the Divine, a seeking for the illumination of knowledge or the descent of Power or whatever. Things project themselves from the subconscious under the drive of the force of impatience and the gates are opened for all kinds of pseudo-experiences.
