Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto XIII, In The Self Of Mind, Pages 283 – 288
King Aswapathy reaches the silent Self of Mind at the summit of the mental worlds and feels that he has arrived at his goal. But a ray of light falls upon all things seen or touched or heard or felt, and showed his mind that nothing could be known. He must reach “That”, the true source of all knowledge. Sri Aurobindo poetically describes and destroys all the value of the planes of Mind which the traveler has been through so far, and the immortal spirit of the king is imprisoned in a world where all must die to live and live to die.
Mother’s Questions And Answers, July 11, 1956
Mother gives us an excellent summary and introduction to the subject of the beings who live in the occult worlds, the worlds which are invisible to ordinary eyes. Then she points out that the advent of this new and stronger consciousness brings more clarity. One result is that we can see things in our own nature which we may not like, but which were always there. She also points out that when the Force which is at work is stronger and more insistent, naturally what resists, resists more strongly. Then she explains how to be in the consciousness that can see the working of the new force.

The Traveller enters the first world of spiritual higher mind. Although the great godheads and great thoughts at this level are a powerful part of the whole cosmic scheme, they are not the final goal. Sri Aurobindo writes that although the power of the spiritual higher mind isn’t enough to completely purify us, still it can make a first change in us. On either side of the ascending stairs of the World Stair at this level rise the two kingdoms of this plane of consciousness; the mighty kingdoms of the Deathless Rose and the mighty kingdoms of the Deathless Flame Each one gives the seeker something which helps along the way.

“Abandoning all dharmas, all principles and laws and rules of conduct, take refuge in me alone.” These are the words spoken to the Karmayogin in the Gita. We must have the faith and the courage to utterly trust ourselves, unconditionally surrender ourselves (take refuge) into the hands of the Lord, leaving behind our mental limitations.
A mind fallen into silence is only a channel for the Light and Truth of the divine knowledge; the ocean of the Infinite flows through him and moves him … forever.

Mother explains how to get rid of a localized pain in the body. She gives a detailed explanation and a three-step method which will remove pain in five minutes. There are also quotations from Mother’s Agenda, showing how Mother worked on her own body and did the same things she taught the students, along with some quotations from Sri Aurobindo’s Record Of Yoga, where he wrote about doing similar work on his own body, fifty years before Mother’s Agenda conversations on the same subject.

water, in different forms, starting with a single drop, forming cascade in lotus pond, or a river stream; many droplets form a rain … and all leads into the ocean
