Frequency of the week | ECHO
Our soul is constantly working for us. She shows us the way and wants to inspire us. Often we don’t listen, because the signals from the soul sometimes seem illogical. They don’t fit within the boundaries of our thinking. This is what you experience when you feel something is going to happen, but you are not sure exactly what.

At a subconscious level you pick something up, something that you cannot explain within your head. That ‘something’ feels like an echo. It’s the reflection of what your soul transmits to give you information about where you are right now. Echoes can repeat frequently or not; it all depends on where you want to go. That is why it’s important to give your soul the right information. Tune into exactly what you want, what makes you happy and which people or situations will help you further. Just like a radio station, your soul will transmit the exact signal to you at the right moment just before you reach your next station.

The frequency of Echo gives you insight into which energy you transmit and when it will echo back to you.

Affirmation of this week: Echoes from the soul give me insight to what I transmit and receive.

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”

Volunteers – True Stories

Yesterday evening at Unity Pavilion, International Zone two of our long term volunteers on initiative of SAVI has shared their stories.
Riccardo de Amici and Martine Bastide both in deep concern of our environment, and healthy food which is already a rare commodity on the planet, dedicated their exploration in food production – one in urban gardening, and the other in permaculture way of producing healthy food. Riccardo while he was researching for his master thesis on food production in Auroville, he started to explore urban gardening in the administrative area of Town Hall and Citadine, Martine has fulfilled his long term wish to produce healthy organic food on permaculture desing at Windarra – Terra Soul community.
Both Riccardo and Martine are with us for quite some time, and they will still stay at least for another year, and their contribution to the community is priceless. Both also express their deep gratitude to Auroville, and the community for the moving experience.

A hidden Power is the true Lord and overruling Observer of our acts and only he knows through all the ignorance and perversion and deformation brought in by the ego their entire sense and ultimate purpose.
The Synthesis of Yoga, Sri Aurobindo

Privilege to volunteer

Dominique from SAVI – service which helps volunteers to find their placement in Auroville services and units shares with updates on the new law requirements on strict visa policy for different types of foreigners. Indian Governement would like to be more strict with visas issued for those who would like to volunteer, and by new policy since June 2015 those who want to volunteer need an entry visa for six months or a year. With tourist visa is no longer possible to volunteer.
Working Committee posted a note on that on 6th of June 2015, and 8th of August in News&Notes.

When one would like to volunteer or study in Auroville , SAVI created a page
where one can find all the necessary information, including the visas pages

Savi Meeting on Volunteer program

Earlier in January the SAVI team that helps to coordinate volunteers and students in Auroville, took the initiative to invite the many project coordinators and interested parties to help share and improve issues concerning the volunteer programs in Auroville. The first part of the meeting was a presentation by Savi of the facts, the recording here is the second part following when the 4 teams broke up to work and are reporting on their findings. Here is a synopsis of the results
For more information please contact SAVI by email

Discussion on ‘Volunteer’s tax’

The co-ordinator of SAVI, concerned Aurovilians, and volunteers discuss the implications of the financial contribution required of volunteers coming to Auroville, the role volunteers play in the life and functioning of Auroville, as well as broader issues concerning the interconnectedness of Auroville’s working groups and methods of decision-making.
A key issue raised was the contrast between financial contribution and contribution in the form of work, and whether or not the one contradicts the other.

The Grace is equally for all. But each one receives it according to his sincerity. It does not depend on outward circumstances but on a sincere aspiration and openness. Words of The Mother, Vol. 14 **************************************************************************************** On 17th November 1973, the Mother left her body. She was ninety-five. Many among her children were deeply shaken for the time being. But they realise now that she is always present amidst them.**************Both at home and abroad, the devotees see the Mother in their dreams. They feel her presence, listen to her message and get inspiration and instruction in their work. They firmly believe that the Mother will return in a new form. Meanwhile her mission is getting quietly fulfilled more and more. When Sri Aurobindo left his body the Mother said, "Nothing has changed. All that Sri Aurobindo has said is true, time will prove it." On the Mother’s withdrawal, her children are carrying on her work repeating the same dictum "Nothing has changed." *************************************************************************************** On 17 November 1973, the Mother laid down her residual human body while she continued to exist forever in a body consisting of a supramental substance. The supramental substance as worked out by the Mother is a material substance – otherwise the earthly revolution would have no meaning – though it is composed of a substance more refined than the Matter known to us. Generally speaking, the Gross Matter of our Mother the Earth is still in the process of transformation. This process is now in an advanced stage thanks to the avataric Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. When gross Matter will have become sufficiently subtle and receptive, i.e. transformed, the mature souls, ready and waiting in their soul-world, will descend and incarnate in it. The formation of their bodies will be moulded by the existence of the Mother’s supramental body, the prototype of the new species. -Georges Van Vrekhem: The Mother – The Story of Her Life
