An open question for all ‘Baba-lovers’
Our Beloved says:
“The best of all forces, which can overcome all difficulties on the way, is the love that knows how to give without need to bargain for a return. There is nothing that love cannot achieve, and there is nothing that love cannot sacrifice. There is nothing beyond God and there is nothing without God, and yet, God can always be captured by love. ……
Pure love is matchless in majesty; it has no parallel in power, and there is no darkness it cannot dispel. It is the undying flame that has set all life aglow. Yet it must be kindled and rekindled in the abysmal darkness of selfish thoughts, selfish words and selfish deeds, as it is fired anew, it bursts out in magnificent light to serve as a beacon for those who still grope in the darkness of selfishness, be that darkness deep blue or all black……….
The way of love is not free from sacrifices. Just as heat and light go hand in hand, so do love and sacrifice. The true spirit of sacrifice springs spontaneously, like humility, and cannot be aware of itself, nor reserve itself for particular objects and special occasion……
Love means suffering and pain for oneself, and happiness for others. To the giver it is suffering without malaise or hatred; to the receiver it is a blessing without obligation…..
The spirit of true love and real sacrifice is beyond all ledgers and needs no measure. A constant longing to love and be loving, and a non-calculating will to sacrifice in every walk of life __ high and low, big and small, between home and office, streets and cities, countries and continents __ are the best measures man can take to be really self-ful and joyful.”
in different ‘cities, countries and continents’,
I would like to bring up this ‘not very personal question’:
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE IN MY SHOES?
My ‘right shoe’ contains an intense longing for Self(God)-realization, YET I feel that ‘self-actualization’ comes BEFORE self-realization (How can realize God without first realizing/actualizing oneself?)................. my ‘left shoe’ contains a longing to serve others the way I CAN. I feel there is no better way to serve ‘those who still grope in the darkness of selfishness, be that darkness deep blue or all black’ than to somehow reveal their divine nature (true-selves) covered up by their ‘false-selves’. For this purpose, I have created/collected a VERY RICH source of text/audio/visual materials to be published/broadcasted for the ‘intended audience’ (Persian/English speaking YOUNG generations)………..
Now, my ‘shoes’ are GLUED to the earth and have no ‘WINGS’ yet to fly!
Providing such ‘wings’ are NOT so costly, relatively speaking, but it can be EASILY provided if there is enough TRUST, ‘love and sacrifice’ from those who love Baba and see this as a ‘feasible project’. it needs a 'collective effort' ONLY.
Thus this open question for all of you___ which can also serve as a 'testing tool' for introspection too!
The best practical/useful answer will win a ‘prize’ from me via the net, OR, in Person on The Magic Hill in Meherabad.
Love you all
