Sri Aurobindo: Continuation of the very same Prophecy

In Matter shall be lit the spirit’s glow,

In body and body kindled the sacred birth;

Night shall awake to the anthem of the stars,

The days become a happy pilgrim march,

Our will a force of the Eternal’s power,

And thought the rays of a spiritual sun.

A few shall see what none yet understands;

God shall grow up while the wise men talk and sleep;

For man shall not know the coming till its hour

And belief shall be not till the work is done.

(Savitri, I, IV, 55)

So, all of us having read this (here, elsewhere, or from the book itself), let us try not to be among those arrogant humans who think themselves to be ‘wise men’ when all they actually do is ‘talk and sleep’…!

Let’s try rather to be among those who truly open themselves to the New Energy in all parts of their being, for embodying already to whatever extent this ‘God’ Who is ‘growing up’ secretly and silently, but irresistibly, in our midst…

    Bhaga thank you! Somehow reading these prophetic lines, the wires have been uncrossed, the import a bit clearer. In silence, through an opening, one by one, body by body here, here, here, a miracle is being worked in total stillness, work being done where signs come not waited for. It is that new energy, the conscious being within, for that being’s own purposes, through some of us perhaps, who can give up hope for a crown of wisdom, and even a modicum of understanding to explain. It is for the divine, by the divine, through the little bit of divinity, l’etre psychique. Somehow, through all, in the spite of all, we pilgrims have chanced upon two thousand seven teen, the sacred birth of the millennial teenager. Alone, all one, all alone with the Supreme, we realize one night that on this journey that takes itself wherever it goes, the only one traveling is the light. Sounds more than a little airy—but taking where it can, doing little, planting strong new roots, the energy growing here, and here, and here is more solid than the earth.
