ACRES FOR AUROVILLE Land Campaign – 24 April 2021
The Mother’s final arrival in 1920 to join Sri Aurobindo
In March 1914, 6 days before The Mother first met Sri Aurobindo, she wrote in her diary:
“It is impossible that in every terrestrial action there should not be a good and a bad side. Even the actions which best express the most divine law of Love contain in them something of the disorder and darkness inherent in the world as it is at present. Some men, those who are called pessimists, perceive almost solely the dark side of everything. The optimists, on the contrary, see only the side of beauty and harmony. And if it is ridiculous and ignorant to be an involuntary optimist, is it not a happy conquest to be made to become a voluntary optimist?
There is only one resource, it is to unite ourselves as perfectly as we can with the highest and purest light we can conceive of, to identify our consciousness as completely as possible with the absolute Consciousness, to strive to receive all inspiration from it alone, in order to facilitate as best we can its manifestation upon the earth, and, confident of its power … do our best, striving towards a higher and higher light … “
Then, on March 30th, the day after the Mother’s first meeting with Sri Aurobindo, she wrote:
“And we advance to an ever greater certitude…. He whom we saw yesterday is on earth. His presence is enough to prove that a day will come when darkness shall be transformed into light …”
On 24 April 1920, she returned to India to stay and work with Sri Aurobindo for the manifestation.
Together let’s be voluntary optimists – let’s buy the land to keep on manifesting Auroville!
