8th February 1969: „The hindrance in most people is mental activity—truly, this body is infinitely grateful that it has been liberated from the mental presence so it may be ENTIRELY under the influence of this Consciousness, without this whole accumulated farrago of so‑called knowledge people have.... It's spontaneous, natural, unsophisticated, very, very simple, and almost childlike in its simplicity. And that [the mind's disappearance] is a great advantage. At this speed, things can go very fast—one learns a hundred, two hundred things AT THE SAME TIME, you understand, all of it seen at once. This morning, it was particularly intense.”
18th October 1969:
„But since this body stopped having the sense of its individuality, very
spontaneously and naturally it has been, "You are"—all the cells,
every cell: You are.
Yes, because after his realization, he has been very influenced by the teachings of the Swamis, for whom its always, "You are That."'
It's more a passivity that would be missing. Everything is too active.And for the Force to be able to go through rapidly so as to reach the body, a GREAT passivity is needed. I can see that: every time there is a pressure so as to act on some part of the body or other, it always begins with an absolute passivity, which is ... the "perfection of inertia," you understand? What inertia imperfectly represents—it's the perfection of that.... Something with no activity of its own—which is VERY difficult precisely for those who have a great mental development, very difficult. Because its whole life long, the body has worked to be in that state of receptivity to the mind, and that state, which is what brought about its obedience, docility and so on, is what needs to be abolished.”
14th March 1970: „It's the BODY'S experience. Before, those who had inner experiences would say, "Yes, up above, that's the way it is, but here ..." Now the "but here" will soon cease to be. This tremendous change is what's being conquered, so physical life may be ruled by the higher consciousness and not by the mental world. It' s the change of authority.... It's difficult. It's hard. It's painful. There is some damage done, naturally, but ... But truly, one can see—one can see. And that´ s the REAL CHANGE, that´ s what will enable the new Consciousness to express itself. And the body is learning, it's learning its lesson—all bodies, all bodies.”
April 1970: „Oh, yes ! (Mother
laughs) Oh, yes.... And all things other than the purely material, all
psychological, moral things, all that seems so childish!. . . "Oh, what
fuss you make about nothing! Wait till you know how it is THERE" (Mother
points to the body). That's all.
