And one day, you ask yourself, “But then, why is one born?… Why does one die?… Why does one suffer?… Why does one act?…” • You live no longer like a little machine, hardly half-conscious. You want to really feel, really act, really know • And then, if you put the question, you get the answer. Why? Because we don’t want life such as it is any longer, because we don’t want falsehood and ignorance any longer, because we do not want suffering and unconsciousness any longer, because we do not want disorder and ill-will any longer, because Sri Aurobindo has come to tell us: It is not necessary to leave the earth to find the Truth, it is not necessary to leave life to find one’s soul, it is not necessary to give up the world or have limited beliefs in order to enter into relation with the Divine. The Divine is everywhere, in every thing, and if He is hidden… it is that we do not take the trouble to discover Him. We can, simply by a sincere aspiration, open a sealed door in us and find… that Something which will change the whole significance of life, reply to all our questions, solve all our problems and lead us to that perfection we aspire for without knowing it, that Reality which alone can satisfy us and give us a lasting joy, equilibrium, power…
