Vers la liberté – Towards freedom

We have to come to a point where all our values are radically changed. We have to cross a line of no-return. The spiritual ideal of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo has to become profoundly real for us. There has to be an irrevocable break where we do not find any affinity with the human world. A total consecration to the embodiment of the divine Consciousness should become the only aim and preoccupation in life. Any project or plan loose their interest as if there is no time to waste. Too often, our life is made up of half-measures. Only a fundamental change in the consciousness is the sole worthwhile pursuit in life. These long excursions in various human activities lead nowhere. Unless the human consciousness is basically transformed, really nothing much is achieved. There has to be a new approach, an exclusive concentration on the development of yoga – union with the Divine Consciousness. Nothing less than that is satisfying. There is necessarily a change in the outlook of the work. Very few people have a real understanding of the process and discipline required for the attainment of the aim of Yoga. If we observe the life of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo attentively, we become aware how they consecrated every moment of their existence only for bringing God in the lives of aspiring souls.
Transformation of this unhappy earth into an unimaginable world of light and felicity, beauty and harmony, love and unity is no longer a mere hypothesis or possibility but an inevitable divine destiny. The sapling of paradise is yet very tender and young on the earth soil. All the events are shaping the oneness to come by breaking down systematically all egoistic and sectarian barriers.
Let us join our prayers for the constant victory of the Mother Divine.
