The Call To Adventure

--by The Mother (May 28, 2007)


We are in a very special situation, extremely special, without precedent. We are now witnessing the birth of a new world; it is very young, very weak -- not in its essence but in its outer manifestation -- not yet recognised, not even felt, denied by the majority. But it is here. It is here, making an effort to grow, absolutely *sure* of the result. But the road to it is a completely new road which has never before been traced out -- nobody has gone there, nobody has done that! It is a beginning, a *universal beginning*. So it is an absolutely unexpected and unpredicatable adventure.

There are people who love adventure. It is these I call, and I tell them this: "I invite you to the great adventure."

It is not a question of repeating spiritually what others have done before us, for our adventure begins beyond that. It is a question of a new creation, entirely new, with all the unforeseen events, the risks, the hazards it entails -- a *real adventure*, whose goal is certain victory, but the road to which is unknown and must be traced out step by step in the unexplored. Something that has never been in this present universe and that will *never* be again in the same way. If that interests you... well, let us embark. What will happen to you tomorrow -- I have no idea.

One must put aside all that has been foreseen, all that has been devised, all that has been constructed, and then set off walking into the unknown. And -- come what may! There. [...]

This courage, this heroism ... why not use it to fight against one's own difficulties, one's own imperfections, one's own obscurities? Why not heroically face the furnace of inner purification so that it does not become necessary to pass once more through one of those terrible, gigantic destructions which plunge the entire civilisation into darkness?

This is the problem before us. It is for each one to solve it in his own way.

--The Mother, From "The Sunlit Path"

" One must put aside all that has been forseen, allthat has been devised, all that has been constructed, and then set off walking into the unknown. " This inspiring passage beckons us to let go and traverse new paths thru new boundaries to become. We are not "unknown" we have just covered ourslves up. "This courage, this heroism...why not use it to fight against one's own difficulties, one's own imperfections, one's own obscurities? Why not heroically face the furnace of inner purification so that it does not become necessary to pass once more through one of those terrible, gigantic destructions which plunge the entire civilization into darkness? The problem is before us. It is for each one to solve it in his own way." By putting aside all that has been forseen after recognizing them as only a few of the infinite and undetermined possibilities for our future, a future that exists presently in our minds only as part of this present moment being created, we can let go of all devised and constructed illusions that heave been accumulated by our Ego/false self. "Civilazation" ? Why not let go of it, allowing itself to be plunged into darkness? Human BEINGS always evolving, need not be shaped by the external mechanical workings we have constucted to originally serve and facilitate life. Every morning with the revolving of the earth, the rising of the sun over our horizons presents us with a utterly new chance to create originally.

I just read the reflection from the Mother from "The Sunlit Path".
I feel a deep connection to the message in a profound way.
I am deeply connected to the energy that is currently available to each of us and drawn to it.
However, I am unsure how to proceed on this journey as there are no roadmaps or directions other than perhaps acknowledge this is so.
I can only trust in the magic and bounty and beauty of the dance of life and do my part to spread love and light wherever my path leads me.
Namaste,
Ilene
