This prayer reveals to us the right attitude in the face of uncertainties.
January 11, 1914
AT every minute all the unforeseen, the unexpected, the unknown is before us, at every minute the universe is recreated in its totality and in each of its parts. And if we had a truly living faith, if we had that absolute certitude of Thy almighty power and Thy sole reality, Thy manifestation could at every minute be so evident that the whole universe would be transformed by it. But we are such slaves of all that surrounds us and has preceded us, we are so much determined by the whole mass of what is manifested, and our faith is so feeble that we are still incapable of serving as intermediaries in the great miracle of transfiguration… But, O Lord, I know that it will come one day. I know that a day will come when Thou wilt transform all those who approach us; Thou wilt transform them so radically that, totally liberated from the ties of the past, they will begin to live in Thee with a life quite new, a life solely made of Thee, of which Thou shalt be the sovereign Lord. And also all troubles will be transformed into serenity, all anguish into peace, all doubts into certitude, all ugliness into harmony, all egoisms into self-giving, all darknesses into light and all sufferings into unchanging happiness.
But art Thou not already accomplishing this glorious miracle? I see it everywhere blossoming around us!
Oh! divine law of love and beauty, supreme liberator, there is no obstacle to Thy power. It is only our blindness that deprives us of the fortifying spectacle of Thy constant victory.
My heart sings a hymn of gladness and my thought is illumined with joy.
Thy transcendent, Thy marvellous love is the sovereign Master of the world. ”
The text above is quoted from the Third Edition, 1954 (translation by Rishabhchand Samsukha)
