Oceans and Ripples

Oceans and Ripples

Imagine a universal ocean of peace so vast that its calmness has a great weight and power.  At the depths of this ocean is the foundation of the peace:  a Unity without division, a Oneness without disruption.  The Oneness expresses itself as a ceaseless emanation of all-inclusive Love flowing towards everything and everyone, equally and eternally, with nothing held back.

A Year End Prayer from the Mother

Grant that this collective convention of the ending year be for us also the occasion to put an end to a whole lot of bonds and attachments, illusions and weaknesses which have no longer any purpose in our lives. At every moment we must shake off the past like falling dust, that it may not soil the virgin path which, at every moment also, is opening before us.

May our mistakes, acknowledged and rectified within us, be no more than vain mirages powerless to bring any consequences and, pressing our foot down firmly upon all that no longer should exist, on all ignorance, all obscurity, all egoism, may we take our flight boldly towards wider horizons and intenser light, a more perfect compassion, a more disinterested love . . . . towards Thee.
— The Mother of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Dec. 29, 1913
