Mother’s Questions And Answers – June 13, 1956
Mother says that now that the supermind has descended into the earth plane, one can expect all possibilities. Since the supermind contains everything, the transformation, and everything that is done to achieve it can be whatever the supermind wants, and is no longer limited by the processes which existed before its manifestation. Since each one is different, the supramental consciousness adapts to all of the innumerable differences that exist in humanity. Each one will be automatically changed, depending on the totality of consecration and sincerity of aspiration. Mother speaks in detail about the need for children to develop their brains during their school years, and she explains the true work of the teachers.

Mother defines our universal being. Then she speaks about three stages of development in human progress as victories to be won; first we have to create our own individuality, second we have to consecrate all that we have become to the Divine, and third, the Divine has to take possession and be all that we are and all that we do. These stages must be achieved in order. Then Mother asks; why should one not feel the divine Presence constantly? Once one has experienced it and knows it is there, why should one lose it or forget it?
Mother’s Questions & Answers, November 16, 1955, Part 2
Mother explains the role our past evolution and the role of our present nature in the practice of yoga to someone who wants to find out what prevents him from progressing. She says that our individual soul, our Psychic Being, makes the choices which decides the conditions of each of our births so that we can have the experiences we need. The life of the Psychic Being is made up of successive experiences in successive physical existences. Each time it creates the person and chooses the birth conditions for the sake of evolution and progress. Each individual is a special manifestation in the universe, therefore his or her true path must be an absolutely unique path. We have the original recording of the second half of this class.
