To man, God is too slow in answering his prayer. To God, man is too slow in opening to His influence. But to the Truth-Consciousness, everything is going as it should!Be quiet and offer yourself calmly and confidently. All that happens is always the effect of the Supreme’s Will. Human action can be the occasion but, never the cause.

Common Vision

Auroville still has lot to learn about important issues like housing. Practicing diversity in unity is not easy but as Renu noted in the interview, one of the thing common to us all is that each one of us is attached to the development of Auroville. Common agreement has to come partially from people being sensitized and understanding as to why the land is used and why is there a certain density. And maybe by all of us actively searching for solutions will bear more fruits than criticizing.

Cluster Development

Open doors once a month is a new addition of L’Avenir d’Auroville services to community members. In the interview with Dorle and Sauro we found out why more interactive approach needs to be taken if whole community wants to work on development of the city. Shortage of houses is a sore spot for years, and reasons for that are various. The new proposal of numerous projects from L’Avenir team was recently published, and it did stir up the community and bring positive and negative feedback along with the hope that things are moving.

Against Pollution

Featured in today’s news find further information against pollution, in relation to the Karuvadikuppam dumpsite, with a plea for involvement from all, as all suffer the effect of it. Announcements incllude this weekend festivities in recognition of World Bamboo Day. Offered also on Saturday a computer slide show on Japanese Gardens at the Pavilion of Tibetan Culture and, a reminder that Play of Painting sessions continue at Udavi Schools new studio on Sunday afternoons 4-5:30 p.m.

The force of soul in you, meeting the same force from outside you, cannot harmonise the measures of the contact in values of mind-experience and body experience; therefore you have pain, grief, uneasiness. Human beings are in the habit of basing their relationshiops with others on physical, vital and mental contacts; that is why almost always discord and suffering occurs. If on the contrary, they would base their relationshiops on psychic contact, that is between soul and soul, they would find that behind the troubled appearances there is a profound and lasting harmony which can express itself in all the activities of life and cause disorder and suffering to be replaced by peace, and, bliss.

Green vs. Oil

From the participatory session held last week by Dr. Brahmanand Mohanty, expert in the field of energy, hear an excerpt of his talk; he focused on the future of mankind, which will be determined if man will switch from oil based reliance to green based practices for energy. His talk in its entirety may be heard later today. The Karuvadikuppam dumpsite: a plea to sign the petition letter, all those suffering from its toxic waste fumes. The text of this letter is available on Auronet; soon at public places (Solar Kitchen, Town Hall, etc.)

To feel hurt by what others do or think or say is always a sign of weakness and proof that the whole being is not exclusively turned towards the Divine, not under the divine influence alone. And then, instead of bringing with oneself the divine atmosphere made of love, tolerance, understanding, patience, it is one’s ego that throws itself out, in response to another’s ego, with stiffness and hurt feelings, and the disharmony is aggravated. The ego never understands that the Divine has different workings in different people and that to judge things from one’s own egoistic point of view is a great mistake bound to increase the confusion. What we do with passion and intolerance cannot be divine, because the Divine works only in peace and harmony. The Mother
