Guiding Light of The Month

O Lord, how ardently do I call and implore Thy love! Grant that my aspiration may be intense enough to awaken the same aspiration everywhere: oh, may good- ness, justice and peace reign as supreme masters, may ignorant egoism be overcome, darkness be suddenly illu- minated by Thy pure Light; may the blind see, the deaf hear, may Thy law be proclaimed in every place and, in a constantly progressive union, in an ever more perfect harmony, may all, like one single being, stretch out their arms towards Thee to identify themselves with Thee and manifest Thee upon earth. - The Mother

My will is part of the eternal will

By perception does one first come to a certain conclusion and then one holds it by speech; only afterwards is it put into action. That perception for me is the one single authority.
My will is part of the eternal will,
My fate is what my spirit’
s strength can make,
My fate is what my spirit’
s strength can bear;
My strength is not the titan’
s, it is God’s
