Putting yourself in the hands of the Mother and her Powers

About Aspiration-Rejection-Surrender—I may add something more here. Perhaps this is more important, more foundational than anything else, individually as well as collectively.

We may take Sri Aurobindo’s The Life Divine as Aspiration. It begins with the human aspiration: “The earliest preoccupation of man in his awakened thoughts and, as it seems, his inevitable and ultimate preoccupation,—for it survives the longest periods of scepticism and returns after every banishment,—is also the highest which his thought can envisage. It manifests itself in the divination of Godhead, the impulse towards perfection, the search after pure Truth and unmixed Bliss, the sense of a secret immortality. The ancient dawns of human knowledge have left us their witness to this constant aspiration; today we see a humanity satiated but not satisfied by victorious analysis of the externalities of Nature preparing to return to its primeval longings. The earliest formula of Wisdom promises to be its last,—God, Light, Freedom, Immortality.”

The Mother’s Prayers and Meditations is the most beautiful thing that can be there as far as Surrender is concerned.

The Synthesis and the Letters give, inter alia, Rejection.

And Savitri: It is for, "...if you desire this supramental transformation, putting yourself in the hands of the Mother and her Powers… and letting her do unhindered her work within you.”
