Dear Tusar, can you post the following, in reply to Bikash's comment? Thanks
Thanks for your comment. However, no one has to come forward, on the Integral Yoga front: spiritually advanced people are recognized from within, just feeling the atmosphere they radiate, without the need of words. One certain way of recognizing them is their non assuming attitude. When you are on the Path, and the Mother’s force and grace guide you, anything else drops like fallen leaves. It is the spiritual ego that craves for recognition and fame, while the psychic being withdraws.
Also, the psychic being does not need people telling what to do with Integral Yoga. Nor does the psychic being need people explaining the works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. The relationship with the Guru is direct and unique – or there is none.
That these two basic realities are all the time violated is the crux of the problem. Straight from the Mother:
You know just a little and you begin to teach others, and you are immediately compelled to say more than you know, because people put questions to you which you cannot answer, unless you are a hero of silence. In the world, those who want to pass themselves off as spiritual teachers—when people come and ask them something they do not know, they invent it. Therefore, if in your inner discipline you begin to pretend, you may be sure of falling into the worst hole—of all things pretence is the most ruinous. In the world you may perhaps pass for what you are not, for people allow themselves to be easily deceived, and that will not lead you to a catastrophe (although if you exaggerate, it always leads to a catastrophe), but in the spiritual world, you don’t have to deal with human beings, you have to deal with the Divine; it is impossible for you to pretend that you are this or that, for the Divine knows better than you, doesn’t He? He knows what you are and it is not what you will say which will influence Him. The Mother, Questions and Answers, vol. 4, 5 February 19 51, pp. 75-6
There is no place for the psychic being in a fratricide war, uprooting all that the Mother has explained vis-à-vis the way to relate among ourselves, at the Ashram as in Auroville. The Guru is Love, Grace, Compassion, each and all are Their children. Paulette
