Guiding Light of The Month

All is light, all is love, ignorance and egoism are but vain phantoms, they can be dissolved. And over all things spreads Thy sovereign peace, Thy fecund calmness. - The Mother

Question of the month (Sep 2014)

Q: What is the work of the psychic being?

A:  The Mother: What is the work of the psychic being? You want it to have some work? What do you want to say exactly? What is its function? Ah! Very well. One could put it this way, that it is like an electric wire that connects the generator with the lamp. Now, if someone has understood, let him explain what I said!

What is the generator and what is lamp? (laughter)

Ah, there we are! So, what is the generator and what the lamp? That is exactly it. What is the generator and what is lamp? Or rather, who is the generator and who is the lamp?

The generator is the Divine and the lamp is the body.
