Series III 901-1000
901) Rumour is each man describing himself to the public.
902) HE was given in the jail the same can for drinking and for other dirty use to overcome physical sensitivity. Abolition of private property is an idea that disturbs the mental sensitivity; seeking a mere woman as an adorable wife the vital sensitivity. These are the marvels of the Lord.
903) The hooded Gnosis the Inconscient is explained as the Lords humour of presenting the fangs of a poisonous snake as a wonder to Mother. (p. 1039, Fangs - Agenda)
904) While on the borders of Matter to cross into Mind, Man actively and intensively exhausts doing things outside starts doing things before understanding them.
905) In life man DOES see a little of the process mind misses and only the supramental sees. The educated man shunning a middle-class job and choosing to start a shop sees that in physical terms. Humility helps man see it mentally. Desire to please another gives the same perception vitally. Spiritually it is seen when one goes away from the surface to the depths in the subliminal or inner being.
906) Seeing the process opens the gates to the supramental and vice versa.
907) The inherent aspiration of the being for the Supreme translates into happiness, delight, ecstasy, in different parts of the being.
908) Impersonality is the pure substance of the nature of Being.
909) The message of The Life Divine is all resources are infinite and if we understand them, we can get them.
910) To the finite person resources are finite; to the infinite being resources are infinite.
911) Man is after material, vital, and mental resources; God seeks infinite resources of infinite Delight.
912) God deciding to come into the world and living among men would surely not be universally adored and acclaimed. He may meet with stiff opposition even as avatars met.
913) Man has learnt to tolerate only what is subservient to him, not his equal or superior.
914) To revive any old interest will be detrimental to yoga as even new interests will not serve its purpose.
915) It is not interest that will serve yoga but aspiration, aspiration that releases freshness.
916) It is not generosity or broadmindedness to consider everyone as a friend in a place where everyone loves to destroy you. It is blind folly loving to outgrow itself without first acquiring the content and strength.
917) Vain generosity is lavish in its imagination of giving away what it does not have.
918) The expansive generous self-giving of a vain poor man turns into cautious self-preservation and later miserliness when affluence comes to him.
919) True generosity of a poor person turns into compassionate self-giving when wealth replaces poverty.
920) Compassionate self-giving is seated in the substance and multiplies infinitely.
921) Vain generosity is not seated even in the consciousness. It is there in fantasy and weaves a cocoon of protection of its fast disintegrating non-personality.
922) The conscience that is awake during the day and in public and is dormant otherwise is the conscience of the surface mind, not that of the inner person.
923) Seeking favours from those at whose hands one suffers indignities, or according the sanction of social emotions to unfaithful spouses are expressions of the physical personality in the society; not one of vital sensitivities or mental idealism.
924) Even as Silence reveals more than thinking, the Unknowable reveals Itself for an effort not to know. It eludes or defies an effort to know.
925) Not only the elementary school teacher teaches the primer all his life, but even the avatar has to confine himself all his life to teaching the rudimentary lessons.
926) The egoless peace of Nirvana makes the eternal Indian ideal of escaping from the cycles of births and deaths petty.
927) Thinking prevents higher understanding in Silence even as being hands-on prevents thinking.
928) Thinking, feeling, and sensation prevent higher silent understanding, finer emotions that lead to Love, emerging of the physical psychic that teaches the body consciousness.
929) Exercise of any faculty stands in the way of the emergence of the higher faculty.
930) Surrender is a method of not giving up faculties but the consciousness that generates faculties.
931) It requires a genius to fathom the ways of a localised behaviour which practical intelligence sees through experience.
932) Genius is the knowledge of the other mans practical ambitions.
933) Grace, Super Grace, Luck, Mothers Luck, Spiritual opportunities can take on the appearance of karmic revenge, physical annihilation, vital humiliation, mentally challenging confusion or even shame. The criminal and harlot are instances. The fangs of the poisonous snake the Divine has presented Mother as a joke are a confirmation.
934) Poisonous creatures and poison take the theatre of evolution to the physical substance at the points where it is organised to perfection so as to acquire beauty. The Divine asks Mother, pointing to the fangs, Is it not wonderful?
935) It is the psychic of the physical substance that can see that WONDER.
936) Fowler is trying to plead and demonstrate the perfection of a language that originated in imperfect social origins. It is the height of divine creativity that he allows for the growth of linguistic originality that demands unorthodox extensions.
937) What should be our attitude to contradictions, acceptance, understanding, welcome, appreciation or endurance, equality, rejection, destruction? All these attitudes, we forget, are there created by the different stages in which the evolution proceeds through contradictions.
938) There are several bases or origins of joy such as a satisfied want, sense of security, excess of energy in the mental or vital. They take the form of pleasure, joy, Bliss, Delight, etc. They also appear as satisfaction, relief, contentment, etc.
939) Is there a basis of Joy that by its presence continuously releases springs of felicity in an increasing measure? It is the relation of the Divine soul with other Divine souls and with God. Sensing those relations offers that basis.
940) In life the highest expression of it positively is one relating to another in the cause of an idealism where the other draws upon oneself for its fulfilment. Negatively it is to sense a similar relationship with another when he destroys the citadel you have built in the cause of his own spiritual growth through destruction of another.
941) All these relationships do have the tendency to cross the limits of the present manifestation when it is spiritual common-sense to pull up or allow the other to destroy himself instead of destroying what you have built up.
942) One can choose not to act even then. It may take him back to the original indeterminability of the unmanifested Absolute.
943) Pain issues from vital possessiveness or moral notion, not from spiritual perception as spirit does not sense pain.
944) What is pain in the mind is creative joy in the Supermind. Supermind has no sanction of pain of any description.
945) Mind conceives of infinity because it is able to see the limitation of ideas. Unless the vital feels the infinity and life becomes one of overflowing abundance, the psychic cannot emerge there. For that the vital, instead of enjoying its sensation as sensitivity, must be able to know its limitations, enjoying the opposite of it.
946) It is not so difficult to change as to know where we should change says Mother. It is,
¨ spiritually in the willingness to consecrate;
¨ vitally at the point of irresistible desires;
¨ physically in laziness;
¨ mentally in trying to understand the other mans point of view;
¨ egoistically, it lies at the centre where it must realise it is ego, not soul;
¨ in life, in discovering the infinity of energy and material;
¨ in Time, to perceive its eternity;
¨ in Space, to see its infinity.
947) The maximum accomplishment is in the act in doing which our body thrills with joy.
948) Physical thrills come from external work, vital thrill from the emotions received from another, mental thrill is from an idea mind creates.
949) Spirit as well as the evolving spirit can reverse the order of origination of thrill from outside to inside. As you go up the reversal shows.
950) Self-giving, a spiritual act of the being, can generate the thrill inside without needing the external stimulus.
951) Acts of self-giving accomplish the most.
952) One type of common disappointment is the expectation of results for an endowment one does not have.
953) To read a wearisome book with interest is to work in the substance of mind.
954) He who has achieved in the consciousness looking for results in the substance will not meet with disappointment. The project will be a non-starter.
955) Doing things in which we are interested means expressing skills already formed. Doing things in which we are not interested means forming new skills. Formation of new skills requires an enormous energy and therefore is uninteresting.
956) Being interested, Doing what I want to do, stolen pleasure, cheating, betrayal, cruelty, being silly, substandard, shameless, etc. are all summed up as: Man is lazy.
957) When we see assertion, lack of manners, meanness, perversity, jealousy, joy in betrayal in the light of their process, objectively, the intensity of reaction loses its edge.
958) Desire to support a non-earning brother for life, wanting to borrow, shameless soliciting of help, gossiping, responding to the philanderer, immorality, lack of self-respect all come under one description. From the point of view of energy required for self-discipline, they all are the same.
959) Supramental life demands relating to another as a soul. The gradations that lead to it are rationality, social values, and hard work.
960) Rationality is to relate to another mentally. Good behaviour is social relationship. By hard work one relates to oneself psychologically for survival.
961) Sense of comparison is an index of the presence of ego.
962) Spiritually, no one is lazy. Each seeks a different goal.
963) The supramental view demands viewing another from his own point of view of maximum possible enjoyment which is a vision of marvel.
964) Desire to accomplish, initiative, and discipline all belong to one who wants to progress in his own plane.
965) Knowing the value of non-accomplishment, sarvaramba parityagi, and freedom all belong to one who wishes to move to the next plane.
966) Nalayini mastered Time by perfecting chastity, a characteristic of culture. Her husband doing the same service to her will be frowned upon by the culture but will be sanctioned by life outside formed culture. It will give him mastery over Timelessness.
967) When man acquires a great experience, he has the tendency to benefit by that experience which, at last, will give him either greater experience or the essence of that experience. By using that experience to go beyond it, to shun the earlier acquisition, he derives the best benefit of crossing the plane that yielded that experience.
968) When good and evil present themselves to man, he chooses one. To accept both and relate to the good in both is to move from mind to Supermind.
969) Suppression, discipline, elimination will not serve His purposes. Only transformation is permissible. Even ego is not to be eliminated which He says will eliminate our life in the cosmos. Human love, He says, is not to be given up but transformed.
970) Suppression allows the vibration to grow below the surface. Discipline yields a localised result. Elimination defeats the purpose of evolution. There will be nothing there to evolve.
971) Suppression gains the appearance. Discipline secures the desired result. Elimination gives freedom. All belong to the local context. Only transformation belongs to the field of evolution of the whole.
972) Service is a social conception. One cannot serve another soul, he can only relate to it on conditions acceptable to souls. Divine service is an exalted social term; in the domain of spiritual evolution it is a misnomer.
973) To meet another as a soul, you can receive the message that soul has for you and withdraw from the scene. Only the Divine Soul can enjoy the difference between other Divine Souls. It is not given to man.
974) Desire for the best possible relation is still a human emotion. Neither your soul nor the others can figure there.
975) No one who has not realised his own soul and raised it to the status of the Divine Soul can aspire for a soul relationship with another.
976) The maximum that human relationships permit is fulfilment of duty and pleasant, positive attitude.
977) Having different attitudes to different people is to function from the mental plane.
The soul attitude knows that all souls are equal grappling differently the circumstances for difference experiences.
978) The souls are not different. The experience they seek in this birth is different from one another.
979) To realise equality with other souls is to be awake in ones own soul.
980) Reaction is that of the ego; relation with another soul is unegoistic attitude; enjoyment of that relation belongs to the soul.
981) He who is incapable of acts that are morally known as cruel acts is also incapable of expressing Divine Love.
982) Anger is socially impermissible, morally self-defeating, and spiritually destroys its one endowment equality. The Force in anger which does the same thing as anger to the other more powerfully is Divine and one must not hesitate to be its instrument when called upon to express it.
983) The Sadhu is not one incapable of anger, but is one whom anger can never overpower.
984) It is not for moral rectitude that one should desist from anger, rather the expression of the force in anger, but for reasons of spiritual equality.
985) Retaliation wishes for the annihilation of anger, self-defence aims at preserving oneself, but equality by its incapacity to react sends back hostile forces to their origin, which brings about the destruction in a more complete measure.
986) Divine Love is pure force, a force nothing on earth can now withstand and how can that pass through an instrument that shies away from a force of anger which is feeble before it.
987) People gravitate towards a great soul not so much for the enlightenment, not even for the mundane benefits but for the attraction of the force he has.
988) Force is power. Its attraction is the greatest.
989) Attraction of gain is physical, that of knowledge is mental, both of which are creative in their own planes. Force is of the consciousness. Its original power is a power that lies beyond Supermind in the consciousness. The Force we speak of is from the supramental plane.
990) Force becomes divine love when it passes through the human soul.
991) Mans hesitation to use the force is more due to his attachment to the mental notions of right than to any native objection to it as Force.
992) Force gives one the fullness of the plane of consciousness whereas equanimity that prevents anger can give only the fullness of the mental plane.
993) Force is the origin of the will that created the universe.
994) Force is the nature of being expressing through consciousness.
995) Divine Love in its expression may feel Joy, but Force is beyond the plane of any sensation.
996) Force may be conscious of its being force, cannot have any sensation, even joy or delight.
997) Dreams of parents or grandparents dying are symbols of ones outgrowing their parental inheritance. Parents praying for the death of a child is the childs weaning away from the parents evolutionarily.
998) Jealousy of family or friends or society, in that sense, is the subtle index for the individual outgrowing the opportunities of growth in that sector.
999) Fond memories of the past relationships are lingering subtle inabilities to detach oneself effectively from them.
1000) Memory makes us insincere is a statement of Mothers which implies the above truth.
