27 November 1965 This talk begins with Mother's comments on the message distributed on the Darshan day of November 24th. “It is certainly a mistake to bring down the light by force ― to pull it down. The Supramental cannot be taken by storm. When the time is ready it will open of itself ― but first there is a great deal to be done and that must be done patiently and without haste.'' Sri Aurobindo * It is good for reasonable people. They will say, “There, he does not promise miracles.'' Why? Do many people have the tendency to “pull down''? People are in a hurry, they want to see the results immediately. And then, they

31 January 1970 I don't know very well what attitude to take. I may however simply put into a question the problem that is troubling me: is everything directed? You know, my child, more and more and in an absolute way, I see – I see – yes, I see, I feel: everything has been decided. Everything decided. And everything has its reason for existence, which eludes us because our vision is not wide enough. And you understand, life, existence, indeed the world itself would have no sense if it were otherwise. Yes. It is... it is a kind of absolute conviction. And I see it. Yes, it is a thing I see. How to say it?... I am now p

Notes On The Way 7 October 1964 Things have clearly taken a turn for the better, not from the ordinary point of view but from the higher. Yet the material consequences are still there – all the difficulties are as though aggravated. Only, the power of the consciousness is greater – clearer, more precise, and also the action upon those who are of good will; they make quite considerable progress. But the material difficulties are as though aggravated, that is to say, it is... to see if we can stand the test! It is like that. It isn't long (since yesterday), something has cleared in the atmosphere. But the way is still long – long, long. I feel it is very long. One must

22 January 1966 I experienced this morning, for two hours, a kind of blissful state in which there was such a clear consciousness that all the forms of life, in all the worlds and at all moments, are the expression of a choice ― one chooses to be like that. It is very difficult to say with words.... The kind of obligation in which one believes oneself to be living, to which one believes oneself to be submitted, had completely disappeared, and it was quite a spontaneous and natural perception that the life upon earth, and the life in other worlds, and all kinds of life upon earth and all kinds of life in other worlds are simply a question of choice: you have chosen to b

12 January 1965 The whole thing is to hold on. And to hold on, I have found only one way; it is this Calm, the inner calm ― a calm that has to become all the more... (how to say it?) complete, as the struggle is more material. There has been for some time past (particularly since the first of January) a kind of bombardment of adverse forces ― a fury, you know. Then you must remain like this (Mother becomes immobile like a statue), that is all. And when physically you have been shaken, you must not ask too much of the body, you must give it a good deal of tranquillity, a good deal of rest. The difficulty is that I am very much absorbed by the  condition of this b

9 June 1971 There is a rush of adverse forces. A mad rush. But the Response has started coming – it is just a small beginning. In everyone it was as though a hurricane – it has not gone completely. All that was believed to have been conquered and repulsed, rushes back again – in the most unexpected persons – in all forms, but especially in character, oh !... doubts and revolts and all that.... (Silence) A message was asked from me for the whole of India. I have given it. (Mother hands the text to the disciple.) Supreme Lord, Eternal Truth Let us obey Thee alone and live according to Truth. It is a terrible onrush of Falsehood. It

9 February 1972 This talk begins with Mother's comments on the message to be distributed on the Darshan of 21 February 1972. “The complete unification of the whole being around the psychic centre is the essential condition to realise a perfect sincerity.” I have observed that people were insincere simply because one part of the being says one thing and another part says another thing. It is that which constitutes insincerity. But it is very difficult to have a state of consciousness that is permanent, to have always the same conscious ness ruling all the time. But that is true so long as one is not unified, my child. As

13 March 1968 In her talk of 27 May 1953, Mother gave the following answer to the question of a disciple: “Can the Divine withdraw from us?” “That is an impossibility. Because if the Divine with- drew from something, immediately it would collapse, for it would not exist. To put it more clearly: The Divine is the only existence.” Now I would have answered: it is as though you asked whether the Divine could withdraw from Himself! (Mother laughs.) That is the trouble: when one says “Divine'', they understand “God''.... There is only That: That alone exists. That, what is it? That alone exists! (Silence) Even this mornin

29 September 1971 Durga Puja: Victory Day (Vijaya Dashami) It was clear, very clear today, a strong Pressure to say: Victory, it is Harmony; Victory, it is the Divine; and for the body, Victory is good health. Each and every ailment, each and every illness is a falsehood. It came this morning. And it was so clear. It was convincing. So, it is all right. It is as though by the Pressure all Falsehood had come out. The most unexpected things – in people, in objects, in circumstances. And it is truly... no imagination can equal that. It is unbelievable. But it is a good sign, isn't it? Oh, yes! Oh, yes!... It is as though there had been a poison,
