A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
Round about this time I went there one evening. A SannyAsin had come to prostrate himself before Mother, and said, "Why is my mind so restless at times, Mother? Why can I not remain immersed in thoughts of you? Why do all sorts of extraneous thoughts intrude? Mother, small things may be had for the asking and so it has been, but shall I never find you? Tell me, Mother, how may I find peace, shall I never receive your grace? I don't have so many visions these days. If I don't find you, what does my life avail me? The sooner it ends, the better."
Mother replied, "What's that you say, my child? You must not think in this way. Are visions everyday things? The Master used to say, 'You may cast your line daily, but can you catch a large fish every day? If you wait intently day after day with all your paraphernalia, you may catch a fish someday, or you may not. But don't give up waiting.' Pray longer."
Jogin-Ma added, "Yes, His name is God. Even if you can't concentrate in the beginning, you will later."....
Mother said, "Cling to what you have found. Say to yourself, 'Even if I have no one else, I have a Mother.' Didn't the Master tell us before he left us that he woud appear on their last day before all who belong to him and take them along with him?"
