June 26, 1971 It seems war is inevitable. Inevitable? They're expecting it to break out any day.... America has sent shiploads of arms to Pakistan; so before declaring war, the Indian government wants to ask America to stop their shipments to Pakistan and recall the ships on the high seas.[[America as a matter of course refused -- and sent three or four more shiploads of arms a few days later. ]] They're waiting for that, and when that is settled, they'll declare war. I am informed almost directly. But you yourself, what do you see? (Mother goes within) It's very mixed. I mean the Forces on one side and the Opposition on the other are not clear-cut -- it's not like that

March 17, 1971 You have nothing to say, no news? No, Mother. How are things? (after a silence) You know, I have the impression that the body ... since it wants to progress fast, is literally whipped into moving ahead. But that's entirely personal ... I am not complaining. It's of no interest to others. It's as if there were a constant ringing directed to the body (Mother makes a gesture of hammering): "You say you want to live only for the Divine -- so live only for the Divine, live only ..." (same gesture of hammering). And so it sees how much it still belongs to this old world. But anyway it's all right. (long silence) We're right in the midst of the transit

May 22, 1971 So then, what have you brought? Well, and you, what do YOU say? Me, I don't say anything.... I mean if the Lord wants success for us, it can be BREATHTAKING. There is the possibility of a breathtaking success -- not in the sky: here. The only thing is to know whether the time for success has come. (long silence) It seems that things are much better in Auroville. S. is particularly interested and goes there, and she sent me word that there is a great progress in the atmosphere. Well, good. I tell you, everywhere there's a possibility for an ... extraordinary success. Has the moment come? I don't know.... Personally, I make myself like this (tiny gesture), phy

July 10, 1971 (Concerning a few words of Mother's noted from memory by a disciple.) "The harmonious moments in life are not areward granted by the Divine. If life were normally what it should be, everything would always be harmonious...." Yes, when it's harmonious we think, "The Divine is happy with me"! That's what people think, but it's not true: it is the NORMAL state. "... It is because of our imperfections that it'snot; when the imperfections disappear, the diffi culties disappear at the same time." * * * A little later The experience in the body is very interesting. All so-called moral, intellectual, psychological suffering, in other words, the su

February 6, 1971 (End of the reading of chapter 12, "The Sociology of the Super man." Mother expresses her happiness and Satprem protests.) But Mother, it really just came. It was all given to me, as if it were dictated, you understand? I did nothing at all. Oh, but I can see that! For me it's quite clear. It's like this (gesture of descent). It creates a magnificent atmosphere, magnificent. Will we finish the reading before the 21st? It fills me with joy. (Mother takes Satprem's hands) Page 46

December 27, 1971 (Sujata's visit to Mother.) A disciple in America had sent a cartoon published in an American newspaper showing Bangladesh ("East Pakistan") bloody and gored by the horns of a furious Indian "sacred cow," equipped with Soviet weapons. When the drawing was shown to Mother by Sujata, she angrily rejected it, sweeping it off her knees: "Take it away." Then, a few moments later, she asked for the drawing back, took a pen and wrote across the drawing: "This is disgustingly untrue," the way one performs an occult act to destroy or neutralize something.

December 8, 1971 (Mother gives Satprem a note she has just written.) Our human consciousness has windows opening on the Infinite. But generally men keep the windows tightly closed. We must open them wide and let the Infinite penetrate us freely to transform us. Two conditions are required to open the windows. 1. Ardent aspiration. 2. Progressive abolition of the ego. The divine help is assured to those who set to work sincerely. * * * (Mother goes on looking above Satprem's head as if she were seeing something. Then she plunges within.) What did you see? (Mother shakes her head negatively several times, then plunges again) Page 323 The work being

M o t h e r's   A g e n d a   1971-12-29 December 29, 1971 (Mother caresses Satprem's swollen eye.) No, no, it really doesn't hurt, Mother! ... Do you have anything  new? It's moving -- moving fast. Because it's moving fast, it's excessive (gesture of straining). For example, during the same meal, I eat without even noticing it, solely in the divine consciousness, then all of a sudden I am back -- and I can't swallow anymore! I choke. It's very extreme, because it's going so fast. But I know what it is. I just gave a meditation to X.[[A Tantric adept to whom Mother gives a meditation every year on his birthday. ]] It is not AT ALL what it used to be ... (what shall I say?). There's a so

May 25, 1971 (Note from Satprem to Mother) I am in the greatest Darkness of my life. S. (Reply) Now is the time to cling exclusively and definitively to the Divine. M. * * * Page 144 (Sujata's visit to Mother) He feels the need of your protection. Cling to the Divine. I would like to enfold him like this (gesture). I am within (not "I," but ...) and acting within. Deep within. To feel the Light, the Force, the Joy, the Certainty -- the Certainty. The Divine Victory is certain. It cannot be otherwise. He must let the Divine enfold him completely. Page 145

December 29, 1971 (A note by Mother in English) We are at a decisive hour in the history of the earth. The earth is preparing for the advent of the supramental Page 349 being, and because of this the old way of living loses its value. One must launch oneself consciously on the path of the future in spite of the new exigencies. The pettinesses tolerable at one time are no more so; one must widen oneself to receive that which shall be born. Page 350
