Q: What is meant by pulling? When we want something from the Mother with a vital desire, is it pulling? What is its effect on us?
Yes; that is one kind of pulling—its effect is to blind and confuse the consciousness. But there is also a pulling for right things which is not bad in itself, and most people use—e.g. for Light, Force, Ananda. But it brings more reactions than a quiet opening to the Divine.
