MOTHER, today there comes back to mind the vermilion mark1 at the parting of your hair, the sari2 which you used to wear, with its wide red border, and those wonderful eyes of yours, full of depth and peace.

The sky which gives light is blue, and my mother's face was dark, but she had the radiance of holiness, and her beauty would put to shame all the vanity of the beautiful. Everyone says that I resemble my mother. In my childhood I used to resent this. It made me angry with my mirror. I thought that it was God's unfairness which was wrapped round my limbs?­that my dark features were not my due, but had come to me by some misunderstanding. All that remained for me to ask of my God in reparation was, that I might grow up to be a model of what woman should be, as one reads it in some epic poem.

Au cours de yoga, j'apprends à méditer. Moi, je suis incapable de l'emdormir sur le dos : je dors que sur le ventre. Tous les soirs, je médite jusqu'à minuit. Cela dure six mois, jusqu'à ce qu'un évènement étonnant survienne. C'est une explosion, j'ai l'impression d'avoir été branché sur une centrale nucléaire. Je dois être fou. Je cours voir un psychologue et je lui raconte tout en me disant qu'il me donnera des cachets. Mais après plus de vingt séances, il conclut en disant que je n'ai aucune maladie mentale. Alors je laisse tomber la théorie, les idées reçues de la société, et je décide que ma voie désormais sera d'expérimenter l'univers pour trouver le divin qui nous crève les yeux et pourtant que nous ne voyons pas !

Enlightenment is not the first step on the spiritual path. Nor is it the last. Yet, the word captures the imagination of people like never before. There was a time, not very long ago, when spiritual seekers began their quest by asking to see God. Not anymore. Questions like, “Does God exist?,­” “Have you seen God?,­” “Can you show God to me?­” don’t seem to bother people anymore as much as questions about Enlightenment do. “What is Enlightenment?,­” “Are you Enlightened?,­” “Can you give Enlightenment to me?­”- are the questions that a Guru in today’s world is more likely to encounter from the spiritual aspirant.

"The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation. They say that God became Man. Every other miracle prepares the way for this, or results from this.­" This is the key statement of, in which C. S. Lewis shows that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in his creation. Using his characteristic lucidity and wit to develop his argument, Lewis challenges the rationalists, agnostics, and deists on their own grounds and provides a poetic and joyous affirmation that miracles really do occur in our everyday lives.
