a playful half-hour upstairs with ‘Lucky’ and us.

 

During this period BABA would take ‘Lucky’ from me, hold him, caress him, let the monkey kiss his neck, hide under his jacket or in his pocket until he became too possessive and intolerant in wanting ever more of BABA’s warmth and light, when BABA would come up to me and I would have to tear the monkey out of BABA’s grasp. Of course, the monkey rather resented it, so our part-time life under the mosquito net became rather strained.

 

‘ Lucky’ slept in a box at the head of my bed. I had to hear him snore at night and of an afternoon he insisted on sitting on the palm of my hand for his afternoon nap. At times, he would escape from under the net, then it was havoc. Tooth paste, powder boxes, fountain pens, belonging to others in the dormitory were squeezed open and thrown down. Finally, an ingenious trick helped to bring him down from a high rafter near the ceiling. By arousing the jealousy of this most lovable creature, I put my arms around my neighbors’ and administered loud, spectacular kisses which aroused his jealousy at once and down he jumped between us. Then I would catch him and put him back into his cage. These are just a few of the little difficulties encountered during BABA’s ‘doings and undoings’ with ‘Lucky’.

 

However, BABA continued coming and ‘Lucky,’ always feeling BABA ’S approach from afar, would become excited and shriek and call, but would find at once his heaven on earth when back in BABA’s arms.

 

It would seem though, that this divine treatment through love could not last forever.

 

One day, ‘Lucky ’ broke all discipline and escaped through the window on to the roof enjoying an illusionary freedom and when BABA called to him, by clapping his hands, he did not obey. When he did finally come down, BABA threw a stick between himself and ‘Lucky’ which apparently put an end to the episode. To us, it seemed as though BABA’s work in dose contact with ‘Lucky’ was temporarily finished.

 

BABA, some time later, sent ‘Lucky ’ off to a new home to be taken good care of where he grows and prospers, in time, from his perfect instinct to some higher sense-perception.

 

Being ‘part and parcel’ of the Divine Theme which has one goal for all creation ... GOD, ‘Lucky’ has received, through this Divine adventure, his evolutionary push, due ‘in time’ to all, from the inarticulate form to the conscious-human form, that comes in contact with the God-man.
