Thought for the day

Look life in the face, this means: dont turn your back

on it! It means: face life as it is instead of running away from

it and call to your aid the inner psychic force this is what

Sri Aurobindo says: the souls inner strength, the inner psychic

force and with the help of this psychic consciousness rise

above circumstances and master them. That is to say, instead of

submitting to all that comes and suffering all its consequences,

one rises above circumstances and lets them pass like things that

do not touch you and do not impair your consciousness. That is

what it means.

Constant Prayer


Avoid Vain Disputing

Avoid vain disputing; but exchange views freely. If dispute thou must, learn from thy adversary; for even from a fool, if thou listen not with the ear and the reasoning mind but the soul's light, thou canst gather much wisdom. - Sri Aurobindo

Be Faithful

Cast away from you these movements of doubt, depression and the rest which are not part of your true and higher nature. Reject these suggestions of inability, unfitness and all these irrational movements of an alien force. Remain faithful to the Light of your soul even when it is hidden by clouds. My help and The Mother's will be there working behind even in the moments when you cannot feel it. The one need for you and for all is to be, even in the darkness of the powers of obscurity of the physical consciousness, stubbornly faithful to your soul and to the remembrance of the Divine call. Be faithful and you will conquer.

- Sri Aurobindo
