This fabulous experience was Sri Aurobindo's secret, and it is Mother's secret. Why did Sri Aurobindo leave his body? Why did Mother leave? Where are they and what is happening? Could there be already here, on earth, another "milieu" trying to pierce through our layers of mud and to propel us by force into a new world?
There are more secrets to this "death" than one might think. There is the secret of the future. A difficult secret, which we approach with a prayer on quivering our lips and a ring in our heart. Perhaps this is how the first man in his clearing approached a first awesome thought. But the secret of the next world lies not in a thought. It is supra-mental; it takes place within the depths of the body, at that knot between life and death where, for the first time, something has begun to stir in Matter-in a body's cells, on the frontier of biology and prayer. It is not a secret to "understand"; it is an ordeal by fire, because, to "understand," for Matter, is to have the power-a power which is found only at that narrow junction where life and death embrace, where the cells escape the old genetic code to enter the law of the next kingdom. It is a new transmutation, more arduous than that of the caterpillar. The transmutation to the next age. To find the secret is to have the power. To stand upright before death, upright before life, at the point where this death dies out and where this life dies out-or else is rekindled to another PHYSICAL life, which is no longer life or death, but something else. Perhaps the life divine. Another clearing. A formidable transition. You will tell them. This is the transition we are going to try to work out together, groping through Mother's great virgin forest. And perhaps at the end, in the clearing of the next world, with the eyes of the next being, we will find what She was seeking, She who said I am on the way to discovering the illusion that must be destroyed so that physical life can be uninterrupted.15 And let there be no mistake: the discovery is not yet there-it has TO BE MADE.
