Q: I don’t feel any devotion at all. I think you know how much I suffer and how helpless I am to do anything. Have pity on me, cure me by your Grace. Help me out of this pit of darkness by your mercy.
I will try to do so.
But it is a pity you cannot form the habit and stabilise the power to reject this thing when it comes—for it would mean that the difficulty was practically over and the whole being under the right direction and on the right way. Other difficulties are of minor importance, it is this one thing that is standing obstinately in the way of the soul’s deliverance.
I will put my force to pull you out—I hope I shall get the full response.
– Sri Aurobindo
