''Q. Mother, this new force which is going to act, will it act through individual effort or independently of it?''
''A.'' Why this opposition? It acts independently of all individual effort, as if automatically in the world, but it ''creates'' individual effort and ''makes use'' of it. Individual effort is one of its means of action, and perhaps the most powerful. If one thinks that individual effort is due to the individual, it is an illusion, but if the individual under the pretext that there is a universal action independent of himself refuses to make an individual effort, he refuses to give his collaboration. The Force wants to use, and does in fact use individual effort as one of the most powerful means at its disposal. It is the Force itself, it is this Power which ''is'' your individual effort.
