This quietude I call The Mother and Sri Aurobindo’s presence

alan kazlev Says: November 15th, 2006 at 3:26 pm My own experience is that by reading Sri Aurobindo and the Mother’s works, often a particular phrase or sentence or even several sentences will suddenly make a huge impression on me, a sense of profound spiritual truth. If I reread and muse over what is said there, I get a sort of feeling (probably not the right word) or quietude. If I go with this, it is much easier to meditate and aspire for the Supreme because the momentum is already there. This quietude I call The Mother and/or Sri Aurobindo’s presence. It is the transmission, the shakti, of their teaching and their spiritual Revelation. That is what I mean about using words as gateways for the Soul. 11:22 AM
