object:God and SRI AUROBINDO
He laid experience at the Godhead's feet;
Mountains and trees stood there like thoughts from God.
See God everywhere and be not frightened by masks
If even then we make mistakes, yet God makes none.
[00004-43] One who loves God finds the object of his love everywhere.
Our life is a paradox with God for key.
All can be done if the god-touch is there
My God is love and sweetly suffers all.
A wide God-knowledge poured down from above,
He who seeks the Divine must consecrate himself to God and to God only.
The soul that can live alone with itself meets God;
That Godheads seed might flower in mindless space
Having once seen God, man can have no farther object in life than to reach and possess Him.
The earliest formula of Wisdom promises to be its last, -- God, Light, Freedom, Immortality
All things shall change in Gods transfiguring hour.
At last the soul turns to eternal things,
In every shrine it cries for the clasp of God
All things are in nature and all things are in God, but for practical purposes we will differentiate between them.
What is God after all?
An eternal child
playing an eternal game
in an eternal garden.
252. I have failed, thou sayest. Say rather that God is circling about towards His object.
Pain is the hammer of the Gods to break
A dead resistance in the mortals heart,
Love and serve men, but beware lest thou desire their approbation. Obey rather God within thee.
My love is not a hunger of the heart, My love is not a craving of the flesh; It came to me from God, to God returns.
Obey thy naure and fulfil thy fate,
Accept the difficulty and godlike toil
God in thy victory, God in thy defeat, God in thy very death & torture, - God who will not be defeated & who cannot die.
This now he willed to discover and exile,
The element in him betraying God.
Make of thy daily way a pilgrimage,
For through small joys and griefs thou movst towards God.
521. If Hell were possible, it would be the shortest cut to the highest heaven. For verily God loveth.
 But like a shining answer from the gods
Approached through sun-bright spaces Savitri.
But if thou wilt not wait for Time and God,
Do then thy work and force thy will on Fate
44. If God draw me towards Heaven, then, even if His other hand strive to keep me in Hell, yet must I struggle upward.
God is a great & cruel Torturer because He loves. You do not understand this, because you have not seen & played with Krishna.
43. If God assigns to me my place in Hell, I do not know why I should aspire to Heaven. He knows best what is for my welfare.
The secret of our apparent bondage is the Spirit's play by which It consents to forget God-consciousness in the absorption of Nature's movement.
For the key is hid and by the Inconscient kept;
The secret God beneath the threshold dwells.
The meeting of man and God must always mean a penetration and entry of the divine into the human and a self-immergence of man in the Divinity. ~ Sri Aurobindo, Essays In Philosophy And Yoga
There is nothing which is beyond the reach of the God-lover or denied to him; for he is the favorite of the Divine Lover and the self of the Beloved.
410. Others boast of their love for God. My boast is that I did not love God; it was He who loved me and sought me out and forced me to belong to Him.
I have never heard of a Yogin who got the peace of God and turned away from it as something poor, neutral and pallid, rushing back to cakes and ale.
42. They say that the Gospels are forgeries and Krishna a creation of the poets. Thank God then for the forgeries and bow down before the creators.
Yet are there luminous tracts and heavens serene
And Eldorados of splendor and ecstacy
And temples to the godhead none can see
questions, comments, take-down requests, reporting broken-links etc.
