It is not a hope but a certitude that the complete transformation of the nature will take place.

Peace be with you, my child, the peace of Certitude and of confidence in my love which never leaves you.

O Lord, dispel all darkness, all blindness; may every one enjoy the calm certitude that Thy divine illumination brings!

….Even with a deficient faith, a fixed mind and will can carry one on and bring the experiences by which an uncertain faith is changed into certitude.

If one takes care not to pervert it, the body carries within itself the certitude of victory. It is only the wrong use we make of thought and its influence on the body which robs it of this certitude of victory. So, the first thing to do is to cultivate this certitude instead of destroying it; and when it is there, no effort is needed to aspire, but simply a flowering, an unfolding of that inner certitude of victory.

We must march on with the quiet certitude that what has to be done will be done.
Certitude: assured and calm it never argues.
Certitude of victory:
It is not noisy but it is sure.

You see, when you have the certitude—the certitude—that Ananda, joy, blossoming are the Truth of your being, when you have that inner certitude and look at life as it is, it appears incredible (not the certitude, but life as it is!), an incredible deformation.

…. I am increasingly convinced that all disorders in the body and all diseases are the result of DOUBT in the cells or a certain group of cells. They doubt the Divine’s concrete reality, they doubt the Divine Presence in them, they doubt their being divine in their very essence, and this doubt is the cause of all disorders.
As soon as you succeed in infusing into them the certitude of the Divine, the disorder disappears almost instantly, and it recurs only because, not having been definitively driven away, the doubt reappears.
The Mother – Agenda: Vol. 5, pp. 116 – 17
Here, what Sri Aurobindo calls the soul is the Divine Presence in each one of us; and the certitude of this constant Presence within us will alleviate all our sorrow by convincing us of the ultimate victory which is certain.
The Mother – On Thoughts and Aphorisms: CWM, Vol. 10, p.293
What he [Sri Aurobindo] is now striving to give this body is the consciousness of Permanence, of Immortality, of the Certitude of absolute security—in Matter, in Life, in every moment’s action. And that is becoming nearer and nearer, more and more constant. Gradually, the mixture of old impressions is disappearing—that’s the BEDROCK, the basis of the transformation.
