Sri Aurobindo is no visionary. He has always acted his dreams. So from individual self-discipline he has gone to the life of humanity.

Man’s greatness is not in what he is but in what he makes possible. His glory is that he is the closed place and secret workshop of a living labour in which supermanhood is made ready by a divine Craftsman.

But he is admitted to a yet greater greatness and it is this that, unlike the lower creation, he is allowed to be partly the conscious artisan of his divine change. His free assent, his consecrated will and participation are needed that into his body may descend the glory that will replace him. His aspiration is earth’s call to the supramental Creator.

If earth calls and the supreme answers, the hour can be even now for that immense and glorious transformation. – Hour of God
