WRITINGS BY THE MOTHER
© Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust
Without perseverance one never attains anything.
Because a thing is difficult it does not mean that one should give it up; on the contrary, the more difficult a thing is, the greater must be the will to carry it out successfully.
Of all things the most difficult is to bring the divine consciousness into the material world. Must the endeavour then be given up because of this?
Our way is very long, and it is indispensable to advance calmly without asking oneself at every step whether one is advancing.
If you persevere you are sure to succeed; as for my help you may rest assured it is always with you, and one never calls in vain.
If you resolve to do it, my force will be there to back up your effort.
