At the Feet of The Mother

This prayer reveals to us the laws of action.

January 12, 1914

WHEN conscious with Thy supreme Consciousness, we consider all terrestrial circumstances we perceive all their relativity and we say, “Doing this or that has after all no great importance; yet such and such a way of action will be the best utilisation of such and such a faculty or temperament. All actions, whatever they may be, even the most contradictory in appearance, can be the expression of Thy law in the measure in which they are imbued with the consciousness of that law, which is not a law of practical application capable of being translated into principles or rules in the ordinary human consciousness, but which is a law of attitude, of a constant and general consciousness, something which is not at all expressed by formulas but which is lived.”

But as soon as we fall back into the ordinary consciousness, nothing should any longer be treated lightly, with indifference; the smallest circumstances, the smallest acts have a great importance and should be seriously considered; for we should at every moment strive to do that which will facilitate the identification of our consciousness with the eternal consciousness, and carefully avoid all that can be an obstacle to this identification. It is then that the rules of conduct having at their base a perfect personal disinterestedness should assume all their value.

With peace in the heart, light in the mind, hope of certitude in all my being, I salute Thee, O Lord, divine Master of eternal love.

Thou art our reason of existence and our goal.
