“...Funds given to me so spontaneously and with so much love, always make me happy, quite apart from the work for suffering humanity that they enable me to do, which as you know, is the purpose of my ‘coming down.’ But I purposely limit myself, although Infinite and Eternal, so my work too is limited, if I do not have the necessary funds. At the same time, those whom I have chosen to be near me always are ready to help me. When I need, then I have.”

 

10 th February, 1936 (during seclusion)

 

“... I alone know what it means to work in silence and privacy, being at the same time in connection with thousands, who, every moment, watch my movements and want to see me, whose eyes are ever eager to mark my movements and know my activities.

 

"Those who work with me and watch my 'moves’, and see things, can have an idea. Others can hardly imagine how immensely troublesome a task it is to move in privacy . . . where there are thousands of devotees and others to whom the name of "Baba" is so well-known and dear. But I have my own ways and I manage things anyhow. And in this working, I naturally expect those who accompany me, or partake in the work, to abide by my instructions or orders, and undergo certain discipline, even with inconvenience or hardship."

 

How clearly the foregoing illumines the Master's words: "The Masters are absolutely impersonal and universal in their state of consciousness; but they can, for their spiritual purpose, limit the scope of their work and also allow their manifested personality to become the center of the aspirations of their disciples." (Discourses of Meher Baba, Vol. 2, No. 9.)

 

During the recent "New" and "Free" life periods, Baba has demonstrated both the "limitations of ignorance" and the “Knowledge whereby the Divine Life is experienced and lived,” “in accordance with the Divine Law,” “through the release of dynamic Divinity.” (Discourses, Vol. 3, No. 12, last page.)
