Kelly from Syracuse  July 11, 2007   My dear friend, Kelly Cutrone told me she would be with me in spirit when I had my surgery on June 12, 2007 to remove my gall bladder. Kelly is from Syracuse, New York. Vishnu, who was staying with me for two days before my operation and three days after is also from Syracuse. I thought this most interesting that two disciples who are so close to me are both from a small city in upstate New York. When I was prepped for my surgery the nurse was very kind, compassionate, and gentle, making me as comfortable as possible. When I was wheeled out of the operating theatre Vishnu said, “You were not in your body!” As I came

John Kelly APRIL 17, 1966 We spent last evening with John Kelly. Michel came but could only stay for a short while. It was one of those vast evenings so difficult to describe. John spoke of many of his experiences and his meetings with Mother and Sri Aurobindo. I recorded the entire evening on tape. Anne and I had heard these stories many times before but the inner indication was to tape them this evening prior to John’s departure to India this coming Monday. Anne and I later remarked that his description of these events never varies. The meetings have been indelibly etched in his consciousness and he repeats them word for word

In Gratitude Nov 9, 2007 What could I ask for in this life that has not already been given? And that in far greater measure than one could conceive. I have met the Mother, spoken with Her, knelt at her feet, received Her touch upon my head, Her initiation into the Integral Yoga with the opening of the heart when She put the fire in me, the fire that burns without heat. Her guidance, Her love, her blessings have been with me all these years. I have met Sri Aurobindo in his home in the subtle physical on a number of occasions. He spoke to me, He touched me and in silence put the radiant power of His light and force into me to work things out in this life. He ha

Diary Surgery Day- Sept. 28, 1998-5 10:40 a.m. And so, my love, the doctor has spoken and now we know the end of this cycle of our life is near. You know, probably clearer than I, being so pure and close to Them at this moment. My all too human prayers would ask that you be at peace and relieved of pain for however much time remains. But I know that the Grace abides in us and in thy name I will aspire to be a more faithful and deserving servant of the Lord. I pray for Chali. 10:50 a.m.

Diary Surgery Day- Sept. 28, 1998-6 11:04 a.m. Some hours ago I placed your wedding ring over the tip of my small finger, forcing it down to barely cover the nail so that it would seat firmly, perhaps throb a little so that my lips, in synchronicity to my pulse's rhythm might repeat the japa of Mother's name. How shall I measure the magnitude of my love for thee? Sun and stars are but footsteps away when I compare the vastness of my love for thee. In thy state of Gra

Tehmi and Plants and Animals 2005 On this day in 1961 I arrived in Pondicherry for the first time and was welcomed taken in by Dayabhai at the old Parc a Charbon guest house. On the morning of the 24th I had my first darshan of the Mother. I have spent the last two hours with Tehmiben, reading Savitri and speaking of our lives in the Ashram. She told me all about her childhood in Bhopal, her father who was a fair tennis player and the chief surgeon of the area, in charge of a large hospital for many years, and of her mother who never left her children alone and would often tell them the same. She spoke of her years in school in Bombay and how

Prayer to the Lord Jan 30, 2002 We pray, not to the One who is far from us, because He is ever close and seated behind the heart, but because we aspire to keep present in the outer consciousness the unity and identification that is fully alive within. In prayer we build the bridge between our secret self, ever awake, and the dimly conscious mind and life-force. Opening slowly and late to the radiant Presence within, around, above, beneath and within, we are given glimpses of a Sun of Truth too powerful to be
