"We are quite willing to do anything to help if it is Thy guidance—but I have no organizing capacity and could not run the Center. We know if it is to be—all will work out and we shall be happy to have the privilege of doing our small part. We feel quite unfitted to fill such a post, but know it is only Thyself Who will do the work as here."

 

And later, Nov. 30th:

 

"O Baba, please guide us to do all as it is Thy wish it should be done and not to make any mistakes. For long I have wanted to beg Thy forgiveness for all the mistakes I have made, both in word and deed and to thank Thee for Thy wonderful understanding and gentleness and consideration for our age and limitations. We feel it very much, and often speak of it.

 

Our love is always towards Thee and our true longing is to do Thy Will by Thy love and Grace. With all the love of our hearts and may Thy Love ever flow through us, to all with whom we come in contact.

 

Always, Most Beloved Baba, Thy Mary and Will"

 

Will adds, in a later letter regarding the suggestion:

 

“We are quite happy and willing to give up this place and go to London if it is Thy wish. It would mean selling the house, but we feel we should not take such a step without your guidance."

 

However, a central building was not found—due to cost, etc., and instead, Mary and Will, obeying Baba's wish for them to be closer to the metropolis, moved to a small house at 10 Westfield Road, Acton, London which, whilst not big enough for gatherings, nevertheless has been "The Meeting House" for East and West up to December 1962. This new abode was soon permeated with that great love for Baba—for as Baba says, we take our mind with us wherever we go.

 

In April, 1951, Will wrote to me in India telling me of the visit of Nariman and Arnavaz Dadachanji to their new house:

 

"Nariman is coming here for tea tomorrow with Arnavaz and we had them on the 15th as well, and consider we are very fortunate and I am sure they like our little bungalow's outlook and the quiet. We just love to have them and Mary says we are able to talk to them about Beloved Baba as much as we like. We feel in Nariman that same beautiful love and goodness as in Chanji, and Arnavaz too speaks of Baba with such unspeakable assurance that we know Baba is with us all—just the same as ever—illumined in both the New Life and the Old Life too, by his Grace."
