By submitting to Thee, Mother, I submit to my own highest self, and that is the true condition of freedom. Thou imposest no alien rule or law on me, but makest me find out the true law of my own nature. Thou usest no force or compulsion except that of Thy all-conquering love, which satisfies the inmost needs of my own soul. The more I realise my nearness and identity to Thee, Mother, the more I approach my highest self-realisation.
I feel Thee essentially bound up with all my life. In my work I feel that it is Thy force which works for Thy sake. In my joys it is Thy infinite sweetness that flows into me. In my light it is Thy light which dispels all my darkness. I feel no hesitation to bare my bosom completely before Thee; my faults and my merits, my defects and my virtues, are all offered to Thee, Mother. I have nothing to show, nothing to hide. In Thee I find my own true self, and in my true self I find Thee.
Our relation is eternal and immutable. Thou hast created me out of Thy own self, Mother, so that Thou mayest taste Thy own love. Thou sittest in the heart of my heart and guides me towards Thee. To love Thee and be loved, to approach Thee and be fully identified with Thee — that is the sole purpose in my life, the sole meaning of my existence. By surrendering to Thee, Mother, I fulfil the highest function of my life.
