Guiding Light of The Month

THERE is a great difference between being in the midst of active work, of external action, while keeping one’s thought constantly fixed on Thee, and entering into that perfect union with Thee which leads to what I have called “absolute Consciousness, true Omniscience, Knowledge”. - The Mother

March-April Sunday Activities at the Centre - A glimpse


March 25th – Self-Dynamising Meditation using Savitri and Huta Paintings

We continued our self-dynamising meditation viewing the Huta Paintings of all the Cantos of Book 3 (‘The Book of the Divine Mother’) along with Mother’s organ music and Her Voice. We continued our attempt to weave using the threads of the last nine months of glimpses into a Spiritual fabric. This Book provided us the perfect framework for aligning with the Future Poetry Jared is navigating us through. Here we can discover the essence and secret of the whole creation of which poetry is just a part.
This is an unending delight and even though we just managed to scratch the surface, we were thrilled with the experience of the journey to the transcendental world of The Absolute, The Supreme Mother and Her infinite aspects including the Flame, the symbol OM, Satchidananda and The Godhead of the Whole (Supermind and its comprehending (Unity) and apprehending (multiplicity) aspects).

April 8th – The Future Poetry

Jared navigated us through the key points of Chapter 5: Vision and The Mantra. The poetic vision, like everything else, follows necessarily the evolution of the human mind and according to the age and environment, it has its ascents and descents, its high levels and its low returns. The eye of early man is turned upon the physical world about him. Next there comes a period in which he feels the joy and curiosity and rich adventure of the expanding life force within him. Afterwards he begins to intellectualise.

The poet can attempt to reveal unsuspected ranges and motives and use the outward physical and vital and thought symbol only as a suggestion of greater things. Yet a higher level can be attained, deeper depths, larger horizons when the soul in things comes nearer to man or when other worlds than the physical open themselves to him. And the entire liberation of the poetic vision to see most profoundly and the poetic power to do its highest work will arrive when the spiritual itself is the possession of the greatest minds and the age stands on the verge of its revelation. We enjoyed as Jared covered sample works of Homer, Shakespeare, Dante and our Master highlighting the different levels of focus.

April 15th – A Talk by S K Sunil

S K Sunil from Pondicherry who is visiting Singapore joined us on the morning walk, April 8th evening and April 15th evening. He shared his experience in creating the Divine Plan diagram with detailed notes as well his website www.sriaurobindo.love. He walked us through our Master’s words on our Yoga:
“Renunciation of ego, acceptance of God in life is the Yoga I teach, - no other renunciation. As the mind is a permanent state of consciousness in humanity, so also we want to create a race in which the supermind will be a permanent state of consciousness. Live always as if you were under the very eye of the Supreme and of the Divine Mother. Do nothing, try to think and feel nothing that would be unworthy of Divine Presence”.
