SMILE

You know, when I say, "The Lord smiles", that means something; it is not that I see a smiling face, but it is ... it is a solar vibration. You know, the sun is flat and dull and cold and almost black in comparison.
THE MOTHER

But this Presence in all things... it is a vibration, but it is a vibration that contains everything, a vibration that contains a kind of infinite power, infinite delight, infinite peace, and vastness, vastness, vastness: there are no limits.
And how often, how often the impression . . . there is no form — there is a form and there is no form, it cannot be put into words. And the impression of a look and there are no eyes - there is no look, but there is a look, a look and a smile, and there is no mouth, there is no face! And yet there is a smile and there is a look. But He laughs, you laugh, you are happy.
THE MOTHER


An incense floated in the quivering air, 
A mystic happiness trembled in the breast 
As if the invisible Beloved had come 
Assuming the sudden loveliness of a face 
And close glad hands could seize his fugitive feet 
And the world change with the beauty of a smile.
