Good morning!... Do you eat caviar?
It is a very good food....
I used to eat it, but now I can't.... Not so long ago I used to eat it, but it made my eyes swell.1 So I've stopped.
How long since you last ate caviar?
Oh, at least... thirty years!
(Mother laughs) Try some, and see what you think.
Right, I will see!
I brought you a flower from the garden: “Surrender of Falsehood.”2
(Mother immediately takes the flower and puts it on her forehead, where she holds it a long time, silently)
I take it in the largest and most profound sense....
Nothing to ask?
No – may falsehood disappear.
Look.... As I understand it, when Falsehood is gone (even in a single person – when not a vestige remains...), there must be Light, Peace... (Mother stretches her arms out)... Vastness... perfect understanding... the TRUE vision of our world and things, and union, a conscious union with the divine Consciousness.
(Mother plunges in)
1 All salted food, the doctor said.
2 Double red laurel flower.
