Guiding Light of The Month

OH, let Light be poured on all the earth and Peace inhabit every heart. . . Almost all know only the material life heavy, inert, conservative, obscure; their vital forces are so tied to this physical form of existence that, even when left to themselves and outside the body, they are still solely occupied with these material contingencies that are yet so harassing and painful. . . - The Mother


Supreme Artisan and Fashioner of perfection,
Atom by atom she builds up the world- she is slow, patient, faultless.
And by her consummate craftsmanship the universe- and each object
In the universe-
Is a marvel of pattern, a model of divine arabesque,
A carefully wrought jewel.
Hers is the keen eye, hers the deft finger, the sure handling
And they compel intractable Matter
To bend and bow down to her as to its sovereign Mistress.
She is the growing divinity within us that like inevitable fate
Is slowly taking possession of our human life,

She is moulding it as she wills it to be-
A vessel and an instrument - a visible embodiment
Of the Consciousness, the Power, the Bliss
Of the Divine Mother.
