Sri Aurobindo's presence
(Mother:) “He was here, so present, so concrete – Sri Aurobindo. Did you feel him? …
When he comes like that, you are inside – not outside, but inside. He is like that, enfolding. You are inside.”
“His presence is everywhere, wherever one needs Him. Everywhere, everywhere. He is united with me and at the same time he is in different places. He is not limited, it is only the physical body that is limited, but not the subtle physical. The subtle physical penetrates everything and can go everywhere. It is not limited by the body. It is this (the body) that limits. It is the mind that cannot grasp. It is not with your mind that you can understand this. The mind cannot express, there is no means to express this. Only by experience … My child, only the like knows the like, therefore one must rise to that consciousness to know what it is, to have the experience of this identical consciousness of the One.”
“There are many who put themselves in contact with Him and find their answers. He has become more accessible to us and He is much more active.”
“You know, earlier, when He was in His body, people used to say that He was very far, remote and accessible to men and that He was not concerned about the affairs of the sadhaks here. It is not quite correct, for indeed He used to spend night after night replying to a heap of letters instead of doing His work of uplifting the world and preparing it for the advent of the Supramental world. … But now He has universalised Himself, become vast, very intimate and close. There is a bond with everyone, through a nearness and a direct influence so that everyone can have access to Him.
It is formidable. His presence vibrates, concrete, all around the Samadhi. And His influence penetrates and touches the central being and awakens the consciousness to the spiritual life.”
