Transformation and Occultism
the physical transformation is so difficult, one is
tempted to wonder whether it wouldn't be advantageous
to "materialize" something, to work occultlyto
create a new body by occult means....
was the idea: for a few beings to first attain, here in
this physical world, a level of realization giving them
the power to materialize a supramental being.
once told you I put a body on a vital beingbut I
couldn't have made that body material; it would have been
impossible: something is lacking. Something is lacking.
Even if it were made visible, it would probably not be
possible to make it permanentat the slightest opportunity,
it would dematerialize. What we can't get is that permanence.
something Sri Aurobindo and I have discussed ("discussed"
is one way of putting it), something we spoke about, and
his view was the same as mine: there is a power, yes,
to FIX the form here on earth, a power we don't have.
Even people with the ability to materialize things (like
Madame Théon, for instance) can't make their materializations
last; it can't be done, they don't lastthey don't
have the quality of physical things.
without this quality, well ... the creation's continuity
could not be assured.
that's an interesting point. One might indeed wonder about
knew the whole occult procedure in detail, but I would
never have been able to make that being more material,
even if I had triedvisible, yes, but not permanent
mind you (this is my personal case), I don't think I have
wasted any time. Because you might say that had I known
forty years ago what I know nowat the age of forty
instead of eightywell, there would have been the
sense of a lot more time to work with. But I haven't been
wasting time. I haven't wasted any time. All that time
was necessary to get me where I am today.
don't think I've been going slowly. As I told you last
time, I had the most wonderful conditions, those thirty
years with Sri Aurobindoas wonderful as could be.
I haven't wasted my time. Oh, it was hour by hour!
is a long, drawn-out work.
used to say it would take at least three hundred yearsso
there's been no time lost.
begin with, the body needs something that will allow it
to last three hundred years.
spoke last time of putting a body on a vital being.
Is that being still alive? Who was it?
have spoken of this before. I told the story of the Chinese
revolution, and how this being left me, saying.... It
was just five years before the Chinese revolution. I've
told the story.
know I've told itbut it was never noted down.
used to dictate. Théon taught me to speak while in trance
(that is, he had taught my BODY to express itself), and
I would tell him everything I was doing while doing it.
And he never noted any of it downI suspect he did
it on purpose: he wasn't interested in making revelations.
So it's all lost. But had it been noted down, hour by
hour, minute by minute, it would have made an extraordinary
scientific document on the occultextraordinary!
He never noted it down.
that vital being who was given a body - did it live
on earth for any length of time?
stopped at the subtle physicalhe refused to go any
farther. It was Satan, the Asura of Light who,
in cutting himself off from the Supreme, fell into Unconsciousness
and Darkness (I've told the story many times). But anyway,
when I was with Théon, I summoned that being and asked
him if he wanted to enter into contact with the earth.
It's worth mentioning that Théon himself was an incarnation
of the Lord of DeathI've had good company in my
life! And the other one [Richard] was an incarnation of
the Lord of Falsehoodbut it was only partial. With
Théon too it was partial. But with Satan it was the central
being; of course, he had millions of emanations in the
world, but this was the central being in person. The others
... let's keep that for another time.
agreed to take on a body. Théon wanted to keep him there:
"Don't let him go," he told me. I didn't answer. This
being told me he didn't want to be more material than
that, it was sufficientyou could feel him move the
way you feel a draft, it was that concrete.
he said he was going to set up the Chinese revolution.
"I am going to organize a secret society to set up the
revolution in China," he told me. "And mark my words:
it's going to happen in exactly five years." He gave me
the date and I noted it down.
EXACTLY five years later, it happened. Later I met people
coming from China who told me it had all been the work
of a secret society. They told me about it because that
society used a certain sign, and instinctively, unknowingly,
I had made that sign while one of them was talking to
me (Mother puts one fist on top of the other). And
the person said, "Ah, so you're one of us! " I didn't
reply. Then he told me everything.
it's really interesting because the exact date was given.
"The revolution will take place in exactly five years,"
he told me. He knew it before he left. "And that," he
continued, "will be the beginning, the first terrestrial
movement heralding the transformation of...."
I did note that down.
had forgotten the whole story, because I now live constantly
in the Becoming. But it came back to me.
all the disbelief in the world can't contradict that piece
note itself was stolen from me while I was moving to a
things were stolen: that note and the mantra of life (I
have told you about that). And I have a suspicion that
it was an occult theft, not an ordinary one, because no
one even suspected the value of those papersfor
most people they had no interest at all.
revoir, mon petit.
