MEMORIES OF THE MASTER , “1928 AND AFTER"

by WILL BACKETT

 

t is over twenty-five years since Baba formed his spiritual link with the West by sending one of his mandali to England in 1928, and now there has emerged from the subsequent chain of events, forged by Divine Love, the challenge of his Message, “The Highest of the High."*

 

Side by side with his ceaseless universal work in the intervening years, and the inspiration of his inner Presence, many personal letters have reached the West from Baba from which a rich harvest can be gleaned for those who serve his Cause now, including all who come to him "in the eleventh hour."

Meherabad, 13 th October, 1938

 

“... I note what you say in your letters about the different ones you are helping, and how, through your love for me, they too are drawing closer to me, and also finding they can lean on me and feel my help, even though they may not have seen me in the flesh. To some, it is a greater help to know me through my disciples. Not all can understand the human side of I. It is more difficult for some to follow and obey I in the human form, due to preconceived ideas of I. Also, a Perfect Master exacts the highest that He knows the individual is capable of giving, and the highest can be known—not to the individual, but to the Perfect One, Who sees, not the small ego only, but Himself within.”

 

“And so it is to the few only that the privilege of contacting a Master in the flesh is given, and all who are ready will surely receive it.

 

“The gift enclosed in your letter reached me on the very day the hospital up here was to open, and on the same day the doctor handed me a list of the instruments that were absolutely essential for the work in the hospital. Do you see the connection? ...

 

“Like Jesus, I have the work of the world to do, without possessing any of this world’s riches with which to do it. But nothing can hinder God’s work and when it seems to be hampered for lack of funds, then money from somewhere comes. And now I can go ahead, and provide, with the funds sent, the absolutely necessary equipment required.”
