Since we have set aside all conventions,
immediately everybody thinks: “Ah! Nice place to satisfy our desires.” And they
nearly all come with that intention.
And because I built a maternity clinic for
the children of people I was obliged to send away from the Ashram, so that they
would have a place to have their children, people think that the maternity
clinic is intended for all illegitimate children.
I am not concerned about legality, I am
not concerned about laws or conventions. But what I do want is a more divine
life and not an animal life.
And they turn freedom into license, they
use it to satisfy their desires. And all the things that we have truly worked
all our lives to master, they indulge in ― a dissipation. I am absolutely disgusted.
We are here to give up all desires and
turn towards the Divine and to become conscious of the Divine. The Divine we
seek is not remote and inaccessible. He is at the core of His own creation and
what He wants us to do is to find Him, and by our personal transformation to
become capable of knowing Him, of uniting with Him and, in the end, of
manifesting Him consciously. This is what we should consecrate ourselves to,
this is our true reason for existence. And our first step towards this sublime
realisation is the manifestation of the supramental Consciousness.
To realise and manifest the Divine in our
own lives is the way, not to become animals and live like cats and dogs.
Just the opposite! The greater part of the
population of Auroville is a subhumanity
instead of a superhumanity. Well, it is time for all that to come to an end.
There are people who have come just like

when I tell them: “This won't do at all,”
they answer: “Oh, we didn't come here for that!”
How I would like to be able to go and tell
them all to their faces that they are mistaken, that things are not like that.
But I think it is time to write it down.
How pretty it is, a very pretty
But, Sweet Mother, your force is extremely
active right now.
Yes, I know. I know, when I am in this
state I see the Force all the time ― it is not my force, it is the Divine
Force. As for myself, I try, I try to be like that. This body tries to be
simply… simply a transmitter, as transparent as possible, as impersonal as
possible. So that the Divine can do what He wants.
Yesterday, it was fifty-eight years since
I came here for the first time. For fifty-eight years I have been working for that, for the body to be as
transparent and as immaterial as possible, in other words, not to be an
obstruction to the Force that is coming down.
Now, now it is the body, the body itself
that wants it with all its cells. That is the only reason for its existence. To
try, to try to realise on earth a purely transparent, translucid
element which would allow the Force to act without distorting it.
