L E T T E R from Jac – To Despair Or Not Despair

The Mother, Aurobindo’s teaching partner teaches beautifully on despair and it has been something I have really learnt into. Her thinking is that we only lean into despair if we have lost our faith in nature’s path. “One who has faith even if only in himself can face all difficulties, all circumstances, even the most adverse with our discouragement or despair” she notes. I really heed at the moment the part about faith in oneself. The enormity of what’s happening in the world right now is testing my faith of a natural order in truth, but faith in myself never wanes. It’s the gift of resilience, that you really begin to understand your capabilities as a human being, rock bottom becomes ’this is definitely going to be interesting no matter what’. 

Written with love,
