The progress does not always come in the way that people expect. There is first a preparation within even for many years before such experiences come as people usually associate with the word progress. There has been this preparation and progress in you, but because struggle is still there you cannot recognise it. You must put your trust in the Mother and let her Force work in you – keep the attitude of confidence and self-offering and the result will appear as soon as the consciousness is ready.
