a new choice of seven inspiring quotes from Sri Aurobindo and The Mother as beautifully presented by MirraBliss, and with our gratitude for their sharing (firstname.lastname@example.org
) This selection focuses on encouragement and guidance for walking the spiritual path. We include these other relevant quotes from The Mother, words that we can apply not just for 24th April but also everyday:
Question: Sweet Mother, How should I prepare myself for the April 24th Darshan?
Answer: Look attentively into yourself to find out what for you is the most important thing, the thing you feel that you couldn’t do without.
It is an interesting discovery. (Ref. CWTM, V.16, p.334)
Two relevant quotes from the Mother in the context of the current situation:
When one of her close assistants got a flu, the Mother wrote to him:
“I hear you have the flu? That won’t do.
You must REST but a rest OF CONCENTRATED FORCE, not of diluted non-resistance to the adverse forces. A rest that is a POWER, not the rest of weakness. Cheer up, my child, shake off the bad influence. With my love and blessings.” 7 January 1963
Two, a quote on “Cure of illness by Grace”
“The Grace is always there ready to act but you must let it work and not resist its action. The one condition required is faith. When you feel attacked, call for help to Sri Aurobindo and myself. If your call is sincere (that is to say, if you sincerely want to be cured) your call will be answered and the Grace will cure you.” – The Mother
