Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo

The Complete Set

I am much encouraged to hear from you that I have the writing capacity. Since it's there I can hope that it will express itself sooner or later in its own garb and form. The “inner soul of rhythm”, originality, etc., come, as you say, by the inflowering by yoga. I can wait my turn for that. But why do you say “you must...”? Doesn't this “must” demand from one a conscious and concentrated effort to avoid the imitation and follow the unhewn path? And can one really do it in that way?

No. Must simply indicates what must happen or should happen. What you can do is to have a will that it should happen, settle within you. The will will bear fruit in time if it [is] of the right kind and especially if it becomes a Yogic will.
