This story illustrates essential requirements for accomplishment. For us to accomplish anything in life,

  • There has to be an aspiration or urge of the being, a desire to accomplish.
  • There must be an awareness of a possibility, a way for us to do it.
  • There must be a seeking for the enjoyment of that accomplishment.
  • We must make a firm decision to accomplish it.
  • We should convert that decision into a plan of action that will release the energy of the vital.
  • We should possess the knowledge and skill needed for that accomplishment.
  • Then we should set ourselves into action to achieve it.

This is the process the Supreme Consciousness uses to create the world. There is an urge of the Being, which we call a vibration, that wills to manifest itself. The urge expresses the awareness of a possibility and a seeking for Delight. That urge, awareness and seeking take the form of a Real-Idea representing what the Divine wants to accomplish.

In man, too, their must be an aspiration and an awareness which are mentally formulated into an idea or goal—I want to expand my organization or get the highest marks or become the President—and then converted into a plan. That idea or goal should release our energy and move us to action. We all utilize this same process all the time, but usually we do it subconsciously without thinking. We are not aware of the urge of our being that motivates us. When we decide we want to build a house, we are not conscious of what it is deep inside us that moves us to accomplish more. But there is an aspiration of our being to expand, an aspiration of our consciousness to express itself, and a seeking to enjoy the delight of experience which comes when we accomplish anything. We can apply this method to achieve anything: put the urge of our being behind it, seek the enjoyment of that experience, commit ourselves to the idea, work out the necessary plans, and release our full enthusiasm. Then if we add the one extra ingredient of relying on Mother and Her force, rather than on ourselves and our capacities, and with that Force we act, there is nothing in the world that we cannot accomplish. There is nothing that the people here today cannot accomplish.

What does this mean in practice? It means that if we do not enjoy what we are doing, we probably will not accomplish much. It means if we do not really, seriously want to achieve something, we probably will not achieve it. It means that if we do not formulate a clear goal or intention, it is probably not going to happen. If we do not organize our thoughts and actions, we are not going to achieve the maximum possible. If we do not put the full force of our energy behind our action, then we cannot expect to accomplish the maximum. This is the human part. This is what we do all the time. The difference for us as devotees is that we can add one more ingredient to the equation. We can add Mother and convert human success—which may result in success or may result in failure—into unfailing success.

One of our clients is a devotee running a retail electronics store in Canada. A few years ago he told one of his most experienced salesmen who was not performing up to his potential, “If you really want to sell more, you can. You are not putting the force of your personality behind your effort.” The salesman thought that maybe his boss was right. He took the decision that he would make the next person who walks into the store buy a $5000 home entertainment system from him. The experienced salesman turned to a young salesman beside him, and he told him of his decision very emphatically. Two minutes later, a customer walked into the store with long black hair, a leather motorcycle jacket and a beard. The salesman thought this is definitely not the kind of customer who will spend $5000 on an entertainment system. Then he reminded himself of his decision and reaffirmed his commitment to achieve it. One hour later, that same customer walked out of the store with a $5000 dollar system. That is the power of aspiration and mental determination to accomplish.

We have all seen this process working in our own lives at moments when we call Mother intensely. But this is a power we can express every day to accomplish everything we want to accomplish. Why just resort to it in times of emergency? When someone is giving us trouble, why shouldn’t we make this the normal way we act? Why shouldn’t we rely on Mother’s power to make everything we do a great success—not an ordinary success, but a success which is ten times or a hundred times more?
