Heroism and Bravery Heroism is to be able to stand for the Truth in all circumstances, to declare it amidst opposition and to fight for it whenever necessary. And to act always from one's highest consciousness. Heroism: 1) To do always what is most beautiful and most noble. 2) To act always from the height of one's consciousness. Heroic action fights for the beautiful and the true without fear of obstacles and opposition.

Will and Perseverance  WILL Will: power of consciousness turned towards effectuation. A persevering will surmounts all obstacles. One must have an unvarying will to acquire what one does not have in one's nature, to know what one does not yet know, to be able to do what one cannot yet do. One must progress constantly in the light and the peace which come from the absence of personal desire. If one has a strong will, he has only to orient it properly; if he has no will, he has first of all to build one for himself, which always takes long and is sometimes difficult.                  22 March 1934 * Even the most beautiful thoughts w

Truly peace is badly needed ― without peace the simplest thing makes at once a big fuss. Nowhere will you be able to find peace unless you have peace in your heart. If you ask from within for peace, it will come. 16 April 1935 * When the heart and the mind are at peace, the rest naturally follows.  26 July 1936 * There is no greater peace than that of a pure mind. Solace in the mind: a silent peace. Page ― 146 The vast peace and the calm are there, ready for you to open to them and receive them.  11 September 1937 * Let the vast peace of the Divine penetrate you entirely and initiate all your m

Gratitude and Faithfulness GRATITUDE Gratitude: it is you who open all the closed doors and let the Grace which saves penetrate deeply.   Gratitude A loving recognition of the Grace received from the Divine. A humble recognition of all that the Divine has done and is doing for you. The spontaneous feeling of obligation to the Divine, which makes you do your best to become less unworthy of what the Divine is doing for you. Detailed gratitude: the gratitude that awakens in us all the details of the Divine Grace. Integral gratitude: the whole being offers itself to the Lord in absolute trust. Mental gratitude: the grateful

Yogic Action From the standpoint of Yoga it is not so much what you do but how you do it that matters most. It is not so much the act that matters, but the consciousness in which it is done. So all is well and do not torment yourself. My love is always with you. 24 March 1964 * From the point of view of a spiritual life, it is not what you do that matters most, but the way in which it is done and the consciousness you put into it. Remember always the Divine and all you do will be an expression of the Divine Presence. When all your actions are consecrated to the Divine, there will be no longer activities that are superior and activities that are infe

Ascetic Practices The true attitude is neither to be an ascetic nor to indulge in desire. The true attitude is to take in all simplicity what I give, to be perfectly satisfied with it and neither to ask for more nor to refuse what is given. This is the true example to give, the one that can help the others towards a better understanding of their duties as sadhaks. Remain my child, simple, quiet and content, and all will be all right. 5 October 1934 * A sannyasi who makes demands is not sincere. To be sincere a sannyasi must be perfectly satisfied with what is given to him and ask for nothing more. In all that happens to him, he must see the Divine's Grace an

Meditation When you sit in meditation you must be as candid and simple as a child, not interfering by your external mind, expecting nothing, insisting on nothing. Once this condition is there, all the rest depends upon the aspiration deep within you. And if you call upon Divinity, then too you will have the answer.  26 January 1935 * Each meditation ought to be a new revelation, for in each meditation something new happens. Even if you are not apparently successful in your meditation, it is better to persist and to be more obstinate than the opposition of your lower nature. Mother, I would like to know from you if it is good for me to devote more

The divine Grace alone shall be our support. TRUST IN THE DIVINE GRACE AND HELP The Grace is infinite for him who sincerely trusts the Grace.  15 March 1935 * The Divine Grace is always with you and by your trust you allow its action to be effective. It is in proportion to our trust in the Divine that the Divine Grace can act for us and help. Integral trust in the Divine: the trust that gives the true support to life. Our trust in the Divine must not depend upon outward circumstances. Very few are those who can stand firm on the rock of their faith and trust in the Divine.

PART SIX WORK Work as an Offering to the Divine Let us offer our work to the Divine; this is the sure means of progressing.             Consciousness develops best through work done as an offering to the Divine. Indolence and inaction end in tamas: that is a fall into unconsciousness; it is contrary to all progress and light. To overcome one's ego, to live only in the service of the Divine − that is the ideal and the shortest way towards acquiring the true consciousness. You must do the work as an offering to the Divine and take it as part of your Sadhana. In that spirit the nature of the work is of little importance and you
