The New Creation III
Sri Aurobindo and The Mother came to change the earthly life.
Sri Aurobindo said in His poem Evolution :
O thou who climbest from dull stone
Face now the miracled summits still unwon.
The first half of Evolution has been before us , the human beings — we have grown, step by step from Matter, which is described by Sri Aurobindo as “dull stone” — we have maneuvered to become the humans through the prolonged and difficult course of Evolution — from the stone to the human. That is the story of the Advent of Man, amidst the stone and the plants and the animals.
And now, there are the new summits before us, which are still unwon — the summits of consciousness and existence : we shall have to face and conquer the new summits beyond the human existence and the human consciousness. We need to conquer the new heights of Consciousness, beyond all our limitations, all our present imperfections and incapacities, all our ignorance and darkness, and we need to have the miraculous capacities to transform ourselves for the New Creation, for the Advent of the New Man, the Superman, the Supramental Being.
That is the Truth — either we will have to achieve it or we will have to lose the struggle of existence and be doomed to the Abyss. That is what The Mother has said to us :
Men, countries, continents,
The choice is imperative — Truth or Abyss.
It is the Divine’s Will that the mankind shall be transformed, as said by Sri Aurobindo in Savitri:
The Maker shall recast us and impose
A plan of godhead on the mortal’s mould
Lifting our finite minds to his infinite,
Youching the moment with eternity.
This transfiguration is earth’s due to heaven …
[Bk 1 Co 4 Savitri]
