3.4 The work on the physical body – Reports of The Mother about her experiences and discoveries in the years 1950 to 1973 (2)

28th August 1968: „Penetration into the body. Yes, penetrations of currents I had several times, but that night (two nights ago, that is), what came all of a sudden was as though there was nothing anymore except a supramental atmosphere. Nothing remained except that. My body was in it. And it was PRESSING to enter, from everywhere, but everywhere at the same time—everywhere. You understand, it wasn't a current flowing in, it was an atmosphere penetrating from everywhere. It lasted for at least four or five hours. And there was only one part that was BARELY penetrated: it was from here to here (gesture between the throat and the top of the head). Here it seemed gray and dull, as if the penetration were less ... My teeth are in a dreadful state, my head is in a dreadful state—I tell you, I can't see anymore, can't hear anymore, can't . . . All this (from head to throat) is in need of a great transformation. But apart from it, all the rest without exception—it was pouring and pouring and pouring in.... I had never, ever seen that before, never! It lasted for hours—hours. Perfectly consciously.

4th December 1968: “But the body isn't mistaken, it knows what it is. It knows what it is. And it knows one thing, that it's only when (and because) it can be absolutely peaceful—peaceful like something completely trans­parent and still—that this Power can act. The body knows. It knows the only thing asked of it is that total, transparent stillness.


The body is very simple, it has a child's simplicity. This morning it was assailed with visions—not "visions," I don't know what to call them . . . they weren't exactly recollections, but things coming and all of them expressing hatred, violence (all that side, you know), and the body saw, it saw and felt, and said so spontaneously (it continues to be in this constant communion with the 


divine Presence), it said to the Lord, "Why do You carry all that in Your­self ?" 

With a child's candor and simplicity: "Why do You carry all that in Yourself ?" And just when it said that, there was a sort of vision, a vision extended over the whole earth of all the horrors constantly committed on it: "Why do You carry. . . ?" So then, the Answer is always, always the same (it's like this, it's here like this [gesture around the head]): "In my Consciousness, things are different." Or, "In my Consciousness, things have a different appearance." And there was this insistence: "Work to have the true consciousness." The TRUE consciousness that contains everything.”


„One must ... one must have that immutable Peace, one must be as vast as the universe to be able to bear the idea that EVERYTHING is the supreme Lord. And the body has understood that it's only now it has the expe­rience because it's only now it is sufficiently conscious and surrendered (surrendered in the true sense; I might almost say "identified," but that's too high-sounding a word, it doesn't want to use it, it knows it's not like that and identification will be some­ thing else), but quite simply that it's now capable and ready to bear the idea that everything is the Lord, that there is NOTHING but the Lord. Previously, for quite a long time, it still needed to feel that all these movements (gesture forward) lead to the Lord, while all those movements (gesture backward) lead away from the Lord. For a long time, the choice was necessary. And now, now it's doing its tapasya to be able to bear this idea—but without admitting or accepting movements of degradation and cruelty.... That is, with the nascent impression that things are not what they seem to be; that we only see the appearance and they are not what they seem to be.”
