Question of the students: The time and the way of death, are these not always chosen by the soul? In the great destructions of mankind by bombing, flood, earthquake, have all the souls chosen to die together at that moment?
Mother's answers: The immense majority of men have a collective destiny. For them the question does not arise at all.
One who has an individualised psychic being can survive even in the midst of collective catastrophes, if that is his soul's choice.
(The quotation, the question and the answer above are in "Notes on the Way", 7 March 1967, CWM volume 11, page 61. Read the entire text of this talk with Satprem)
