worries will become then; so why not stop worrying today? Try to live until I give the Word. You may worry yourself to death unnecessarily—and then when I give the Word—you won't be there!"
Some of the young ones were concerned about their careers. The whole world is bound by worry," said Baba. "I am full of worries—you have no idea what real worries are! But with Me there is Infinite Bliss and that sustains Me; otherwise it is a burden."
Lud Dimpfl described how he worried briefly about money left in a pair of trousers sent to the cleaners. Baba sent for his wife, Bea, who said she hadn't worried about the lost money at all! Baba continued to Lud:
"Why not lose your self . . . so you can come to Me! Forget your worries ..and find Me within you. When I give out the Word let it touch your heart . . . it will give you such happiness that the loss of even millions of dollars will not matter. No amount of money can give you that Experience! The time must come when I will give My Word. Meanwhile I want your love. . . I want you to love Me as you should." When asked about the Sufi Center, Baba said, "It is one of My channels. I am the Source . . . I have so many channels, tributaries." Baba said that now Francis was with Him, he knew how much Baba suffered. Baba continued, "And the end of all suffering would be the giving of the Word; that would be the release for Me! But I tell you all again—do not worry!"
I went in to Baba with my old New York group, together with a friend from California. I mentioned some of His Western lovers who could not get to the Sahavas. He kindly inquired after my health and work, and in the same way, made personal contact with others in the group.
He said to us, "I am very happy to see you all here. How is the group, Fred? How do you all manage among yourselves?" Someone replied there were hitches, hindrances caused by little personal things, but that everyone met on common ground.
"To maintain an atmosphere of cooperation and harmony is most essential," Baba told us. "Do you know that I am also there with you all at the meetings?" About the problem of establishing other centers, Baba said, "All these problems will be solved when I give the Word. The problems of the whole world will find a solution. Continue to love Me. . . and those who love Me will feel the impact of that Word in their hearts. . . you may even topple over or do a somersault!" Baba teased.
