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.
Chloe performed an interesting piece of music out of old tapes and systems. Her performance was intriguing as she created music through waste. The performance was a potpourri of jazz music, conversations and other genres of music.
CIRHU started “Aurovillian Conversations”, a series of weekly reflections between students, volunteers, newcomers and interested people with Aurovillians and friends of Auroville with experience in specific fields of knowledge.
This week the Aurovillian pioneer “B” was invited to share his experiences and reflections on “The Sunlit Path”. He also very interestingly referred to the modern day spiritual classic “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle as being a guide for the Sunlit Path, and of course as well as the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, which have been B’s main source of inspiration.
Listen in to the many beautiful reflections which were shared during this conversation at Bhavishyate on the evening of the 16th March 2017.

The great Yogi-King is at the end of his journey through the little mind. Sri Aurobindo shows us how reason, the last and greatest process of our little mind, cannot see the whole Truth. “For nothing is known while aught remains concealed; the Truth is known only when all is seen.” He shows what happens can when science, which is based on reasoning thought and observation of material things, can no longer rely on the thinking processes of the little mind. He speaks of the destruction that occurs when man uses only reason to control others by the mis-use of dangerous scientific discoveries.

Mother’s Questions and Answers, June 6, 1956, Part 2
In this second half of the class, Mother speaks about a very important aspect of the yoga practice; the “reversal of consciousness”. When this happens, the true consciousness becomes stabilized in some part of our being. She says that we can use this to organize all the parts and elements of our being around our own Divine center, our psychic being, and that that this is the best thing we can do to be complete instruments of the Divine Will. She says, “This is truly the essential and original reason for physical life”.
