Q: I don’t find my thinking as before. Either something has gone into it or its activity does not seem as pleasant as before.
I do not see any evidence that your thinking is not just as before. If it is a fact, it may be due to the physical mind coming up — for that is always stupid — or it may be the mind is tired of the old kind of thinking and wants something better.
Q: My physical work goes on smoothly by the Mother’s Force. But even an inner silence cannot be maintained during mental work.
It is only because it is more difficult to separate from the active mind than from the body consciousness.
– Sri Aurobindo
