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

Benevolence and Goodwill

A tireless benevolence, clear-seeing and comprehensive, free from all personal reaction, is the best way to love God and serve Him upon earth.

I mean a benevolence sincere and spontaneous in thought and speech and not a supposed benevolence in acts which is accompanied most often by a dreadful sense of condescending superiority serving chiefly as a platform for human vanity.

***

Indeed, the good will hidden in all things reveals itself everywhere to the one who carries good will in his consciousness.

This is a constructive way of feeling which leads straight to the Future.

***

One should keep goodwill and love constantly in his heart and let them pour out upon all with tranquility and with equanimity.

Benevolence makes life fragrant without attracting attention.

***

Your heart is the home of a luminous goodness; let it govern your whole being.
-       The Mother
