Baba said: "I have explained the origin of this discourse. It was given for Harry Kenmore in India after he had heard the devotees saying they didn't know how to love God. At these last sahavas in India each one there was a genuine lover of mine. They were ready to lay down their lives for me."
Baba then went to the Lagoon Cabin over which floated the Baba flag of 7 colors sent by Mehera. Again he called individuals and small groups. He called for all those who had not yet seen him, letting them kiss his hand. Then he was carried in his special chair for a tour of the center from cabin to cabin and many followed close behind. The men took turns carrying Baba's chair. At two cabins Baba got down and walked to the door of the cabin. He left at about 3 o'clock.

Baba entered the Barn and asked the time. It’s 9 o'clock, Baba's time," he said. "Join me again today in the Prayer of Repentance, with all sincerity, and God in His Infinite Compassion will forgive all your weaknesses, shortcomings and failures up to date. Let the prayer sink deep into you and concentrate on me."
We all rose and Harry repeated the prayer. Don Stevens then read the discourse:
God is One. He is both father and mother in One. He is in everyone and in everything; but God is beyond this too. I will tell you about God in the Beyond state. In the Beyond state God is both God the father and God the mother simultaneously.
Now we will discuss the worldly father and mother. Suppose a couple has seven sons. It is natural for the father to love those sons who are useful to him, who are healthy, intelligent, brilliant—obviously, the father will remain pleased with such sons. Now the six sons of his worldly father are healthy, strong, intelligent and good in all respects; the seventh son is a disabled weakling, innocent, simple and guileless (Bhola). The father has no love for this seventh son and loves only his six sons. But the mother loves her seventh son the most; more so, because he is weak, sick, disabled, simple and guileless.
