out of the labyrinthine maze of selfhood's false impressions, and declares with Divine authority the true nature of man and the Real Goal of Life.

 

"It is time," Baba says, "that man had a fresh vision of the Truth that all life is one, and that GOD IS THE ONLY THING WHICH IS REAL AND THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS. God," he continues, "is worth living for; and He is also worth dying for; all else is an empty pursuit of illusory values."

 

"We have to love Him silently and honestly even in our everyday life. Whilst eating, drinking, talking and doing all our duties, we can still love God continuously, without letting anyone know. When God is found, you can have no idea what Infinite Bliss and Peace is gained. I give you all my love so that some day you can love God as He ought to be loved."

 

Strange as it may seem to those who do not know, we have found that through loving Baba we are actually loving God; and that his Love leads us into the inner mystery of the Ocean of Divine Love that God really is. This is the Key to one of the most beautiful and overwhelming of all mystical experiences; for when we love, and inwardly keep company with the God-realized Master, we in turn become the recipients of his immeasurably greater Love; and this outpouring is more than the hard-shelled ego can bear, so it begins to die. But that dying is actually the beginning of Life, for it is the beginning of the annihilation of the false by being in the conscious Presence of the Real.

 

“If you who keep company with me," Baba once said, are sometimes attracted to worldly maya, do not get disappointed. I, too, was once like you, but the grace of Babajan descended upon me, and She, the Perfect Saint, presented me with the Pearl of God-Realization."

 

And the following lines have been quoted by Baba, as they explain so well the beautiful relationship between the sincere devotee and the Master:

 

"Constantly repeating Thy Name, I become one with Thee, nothing was left of me (self). How can I sing Thy praise, 0 Guru Mine? Wherever I cast my eyes, I perceive Thee and nothing else."

 

With this as the pattern of our devotion, may our Birthday Remem­brance to Baba be a greater effort to understand and more deeply appre­ciate the incomparable importance of his life as it touches ours; and let us, in all sincerity, have the courage, the humility and the faith to let go of every shade of self-centered ignorance, and truly, wholeheartedly set forth on the glorious Path of Love and Truth to the Highest of the High.
