Question: How can we feel absolutely secure in all circumstances, at all times, in any case?

Answer: This sense of total security, this confidence comes by an absolute surrender in love and knowledge and will to the Supreme Divine. There are many stages which progressively lead us to the state of perfect surrender. And at each stage there is a development of the consciousness which could be taken as indications, as confirmation of our spiritual progress.

_  As soon as there is a general state of surrender in our being to the Supreme, we become intensely and convincingly aware that only the Supreme and nobody else and nothing else in this world or in other worlds is the Lord and Master of our destiny, whose protection is inviolable. The Supreme becomes the living, infinite, omnipotent, omniscient Person, the Divine Being, our master, our friend, guide and teacher, mother and the beloved of our soul. Nothing can destroy this relationship or even come between the Divine and ourselves and interfere in our spirituality and our work.

_  By a still greater perfection of self-surrender we now become aware that the Lord, the Supreme, the Mother, is not only the master and protector of our destiny, but He and She, the Eternal, is the absolute master of all this . It is only his will that is executed in the universe. Whatever the individuals do or nature’s forces execute is sanctioned and permitted by his will. Everything happens within the framework of this supreme Wwll though with our limited consciousness we may not be able to seize the immediate significance of a world movement or action or something which might seem even insignificant at the time. We become aware of a mother -consciousness, of a supreme wisdom which guides the destiny of the individual, the collectivity, the race, the entire earth, the universe, in fact, all manifestation with limitless love and wisdom towards a more and more perfect divine destiny. Nothing happens which is not a movement of Her wisdom, a necessary step in Her forward march, an inevitable link in the chain of development. Not even a blade of grass in this universe can move or tremble without Her presence, power and sanction. We see Her as the overwhelming supreme Power, Mahashakti, the supreme Wisdom, the Supreme Executrix. And we discover gradually the unity of Her will in all world movements, collective movements and individual movements. We also discover the unity of Her purpose. She has a single purpose. To take gradually each and every element in the universe towards a more and more sublime divine fulfillment.

_  As the self-giving deepens and the last traces of ego disappear, a greater and greater union with the Divine is accomplished and accompanied by a greater possession of the being by the sublime powers of the Divine . The vision of oneness, of absolute unity, of the one single divine Being, the Eternal, the Infinite becomes stable, permanent and the intensity of this vision grows continuously. This vision is the power of oneness, the power of supreme love, which knows everything as the One, as the single existence and substance and being. This supreme power of Love brings a tremendous pressure of obligation, necessity and organic need on all the elements of the universe to unite, to become one and to express the unity and the Oneness. The power of this force of Love is irresistible, invincible, its action is a decree irreversible. The results are steps leading to unity and each step is irrevocable and in the divine vision, since oneness is the very essence of manifestation, the realisation of oneness is only a playful process inevitable by the very nature of the utter truth of our existence. God vision is the vision of this utter oneness of which the very substance is delight. The Supreme Love or the Power of Oneness is the Supreme Delight and in the world existence, in the midst of the ignorance, its manifestation on earth will compel all the elements to unite through attraction, necessity, obligation and through conscious choice and awakening to the spiritual reality. To become the manifesting centres of this supreme power of Love is the key sine-qua-non of a new creation – the Divine Life on earth. The divine will is the supreme law of Love, the absolute compulsion towards unity and Oneness.
