Chapter 12: "Letters of Sri Aurobindo" (1934-1936)

Question: I want to start every action of mine knowing the Divine Will. But how to find out the Divine Will?

Sri Aurobindo: It needs a quiet mind - in the quiet mind turned towards the Divine, the initiation comes of the Divine Will and the right way to do it

Question: How to concentrate on the heart-centre?

Sri Aurobindo: You can concentrate the consciousness any where in any centre. You have only to think of yourself as centrally there and try to fix and keep that. A strain or strong effort to do so is not necessary, a quiet and steady dwelling on the idea - after a time you will feel something there which you can recognise as consciousness steady and central and from there one can think, receive, originate action.
Most people associate consciousness with the brain or head because that is the centre for intellectual thought and mental vision, but consciousness is not limited to that kind of thought or vision, - it is everywhere in the system and there are several centres of it; e.g., the centre for emotion is not in the brain but in the heart - the originating centre of vital desire is still lower down.
The two main places where one can centre the consciousness for Yoga are in the head and in the heart - the mind centre and the soul centre.
