The New Creation II
Sri Aurobindo and The Mother have assured us of Their help on the Way. Has not He told us so in the following words?
And yet I know my footprints’ track shall be
A pathway towards Immortality. [The Pilgrim of the Night]
He has asked us to find the secrets within and proceed towards the New Becoming. To show us the Way, Sri Aurobindo had to find out the Way himself, for it was an untrodden way, a New Way. He had to work hard, undertaking an untried spiritual research.
He who would bring the heavens here
Must descend himself into clay
And the burden of earthly nature bear
And tread the dolorous way. [God’s Labour: Sri Aurobindo]
And what did He tell us to do?
A voice cried, “Go where none have gone!
Dig deeper, deeper yet
Till thou reach the grim foundation stone
And knock at the keyless gate.”[God’s Labour: Sri Aurobindo]
Sri Aurobindo was Himself an Adventure of Consciousness, as Satprem called Him. In the language of His own epic poem Savitri, He was a ‘Voyager upon uncharted routes, fronting the danger of the Unknown and adventuring across enormous realms.’
A big change will come on earth — it has already started coming, since the 29th February 1956, when the Supramental Consciousness descended on earth, as The Mother declared .
Sri Aurobindo has said :
Often a lustrous inner dawn shall come
Lighting the chambers of the slumbering mind;
A sudden bliss shall run through every limb
And Nature with a mightier Presence fill.
Thus shall the earth open to divinity
And common natures feel the wide uplift,
Illumine common acts with the Spirit’s ray
And meet the deity in common things.
Nature shall live to manifest secret God,
The Spirit shall take up the human play,
This earthly life become the life divine.
The Mission for which Sri Aurobindo and The Mother came on earth can be clearly known from what is stated by ‘Savitri’ :
My soul and his indissolubly linked
In the one task for which our lives were born
To raise the world to God in deathless Light.
To bring God down to the world on earth
We came to change the earthly life to life divine. [Savitri]
