As I lay down in bed with a tired self and a disillusioned heart in an attempt to seek solace from God and an answer to my innumerable questions I happened to open this page from the book, LOOKING FROM WITHIN by Sri Aurobindo and The Mother..and there I found the above writings!
Talk about His Divine Intervention : ))
He is truly My Sweetheart!
May you all find inner peace and an end to all your worries, just the way I found mine!
Love you all :)
“ Every morning my aspiration rises ardently to Thee, and in the silence of my satisfied heart I ask that Thy law of Love may be expressed, and that Thy will may be manifest. And in anticipation I adhere with joy and serenity to those circumstances which will express this law and this will.
Oh, why be restless and want for oneself that things should turn out in one way and not another! Why decide that a particular set of circumstances will be the expression of the best possibilities and then launch into a bitter struggle so that these possibilities may be realised! Why not use all one’s energy solely to will in the calm of inner confidence that Thy law may Triumph everywhere and always over all difficulties, all darkness, all egoism! How the horizon widens as soon as one learns to take this attitude; how all anxiety vanishes giving place to a constant illumination, to the Omnipotence of disinterestedness!
To will what Thou Willest, O Lord, is to live constantly in communion with Thee…to be delivered from all contingencies, to escape all narrowness, to fill one’s lungs with pure and wholesome air, to get rid of all useless weariness, be relieved of all cumbrous loads, so as to run briskly towards the only goal worth attaining : the Triumph of Thy Divine Law!
As soon as one becomes conscious and convinced of this, one can no longer worry about future circumstances or the turn of events : it is with perfect serenity that one does at every moment what one thinks best, convinced that the best too is sure to come from it, even if it is not the result which we, with our limited reasoning, expected from it.
O Lord, with what Joy and Trust I greet Thee this morning!!....”
