You must keep the temple clean if you wish to install there the living Presence - Sri Aurobindo Thoughts

There are two powers – a fixed and unfailing aspiration that calls from below and a supreme Grace from above that answers – that alone work together in achieving great aims and overcoming difficult things.

But the supreme Grace will act only in the conditions of the Light and the Truth; it will not act in conditions laid upon it by the Falsehood and the Ignorance. For if it were to yield to the demands of the Falsehood, it would defeat its own purpose.

If you open yourself on one side or in one part to the Truth and on another side are constantly opening the gates to hostile forces, it is vain to expect that the divine Grace will abide with you. You must keep the temple (body and mind) clean if you wish to install there the living Presence.
Sri Aurobindo
