It is possible so to turn life into an act of adoration to the Supreme by the
spirit in one's works; for, says
the Gita, “He who gives to me with a heart of adoration a leaf, a flower, a fruit or a cup of water, I take and
enjoy that offering of his devotion,” and it is not only any dedicated external gift that can be so offered with
love and devotion, but all our thoughts, all our feelings and sensations, all our outward activities and their
forms and objects can be such gifts to the Eternal. It is true that the special act or form of action has its importance,
even a great importance, but it is the spirit in the act that is the essential factor; the spirit of which it is
the symbol or materialised expression gives it its whole value and justifying significance.
If you desire this transformation, put yourself in the hands of the Mother and her Powers without cavil or resistance and let her do unhindered her work within you. Three things you must have, consciousness, plasticity, unreserved surrender. For you must be conscious in your mind and soul and heart and life and the very cells of your body, aware of the Mother and her Powers and their working; for although she can and does work in you even in your obscurity and your unconscious parts and moments, it is not the same thing as when you are in awakened and living communion with her.
Out of our thoughts we must leap up to sight,
Breathe her divine illimitable air,
Her simple vast supremacy confess,
Dare to surrender to her absolute.
Then the Unmanifest reflects his form
In the still mind as in a living glass;
The timeless Ray descends into our hearts
And we are rapt into eternity.
