I belong to no nation, no civilization, no society, no race, but to the Divine. I obey no master, no ruler, no law, no social convention, but the Divine…” ~ The Mother
Mirra Alfassa or ‘The Mother’ of Auroville was the spiritual collaborator and companion of Sri Aurobindo, the great sage, seer, scholar, poet, patriot and teacher. She was prolific writer, artist, and musician, and founder of the spiritual city of the future – Auroville in Pondicherry, India.
“The end of a stage of evolution,” announced by Sri Aurobindo, “is usually marked by a powerful recrudescence of all that has to go out of the evolution.”6 Everywhere about us we see this paroxysmal shattering of all the old forms: our borders, our churches, our laws, our morals are collapsing on all sides. They are not collapsing because we are bad, immoral, irreligious, or because we are not sufficiently rational, scientific or human, but because we have come to the end of the human! To the end of the old mechanism – for we are on our way to SOMETHING ELSE. ~ Evolution, Dec 11 1971
