“There is a domain far above the mind which we could call the world of Harmony and, if you can reach there, you will find the root of all harmony that has been manifested in whatever form upon earth. For instance, there is a certain line of music, consisting of a few supreme notes, that was behind the productions of two artists who came one after another – one a concerto of Bach, another a concerto of Beethoven. The two are not alike on paper and differ to the but in their essence they are the same. One and the same vibration of consciousness, one wave of significant harmony touched both these artists. Beethoven caught a larger part, but in him it was more mixed with the inventions and interpolations of his mind; Bach received less, but what he seized of it was purer. The vibration was that of victorious emergence of consciousness, consciousness tearing itself out of unconsciousness in a triumphant uprising and birth.

The Auroville Council and the Working Committee inform us on daily operations at Entry Service

Water Group says : ” So saving water is critical. It is NOT the time to plant anything new. It is NOT the time to refill your massive swimming pools. It is NOT the time to water the roads, as much as it helps to keep the dust down. It is NOT the time to water your lawns, or keep your ornamental gardens lush and green. It IS the time to prioritize your water usage, and have honest conversations within your communities about water usage in communal spaces. It IS the time to save water in every possible way, and to encourage respectfully others in the community to do the same.”

When you awake, you cross a line of no return, and you never see the world in the same way. You are still dreaming—because you cannot avoid dreaming, because dreaming is the function of the mind–but the difference is that you know it’s a dream.
