Looking at Baba, she said slowly, gratefully, "Darling, I know now what You meant when You said that all this was nothing. You were right."
And D. has never forgotten. Whatever may occur in the unfoldment of phenomenal existence, she knows that it is all an illusion, she is always serene and undisturbed.
That is what Baba means when He says, as He frequently does, that the only justifiable use of power is for the spiritual unfoldment of others.
A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR
As many of you know, our dear publisher, Warren Healy, because of severe illness, is no longer able to help us publish The Awakener, although he is recovering. Our good friend, Merle Gould, publisher of The Cosmic Star — (now New Age World) — helped us get out the last issue, in our emergency. Now we are working with the Chicago Printing Service of Los Angeles. We certainly plan to continue, although our costs will be higher.
A word of thanks to all of you “out there" who have borne our irregular publication schedule so patiently, and who responded so warmly to the plea for donations in the recent "family letter." May we continue, by Baba's Grace, to continue more of the best news there is to publish in this Kali Yoga — the ADVENT of AVATAR MEHER BABA, THE AWAKENER !
RECENT NEWS ... “Beloved Baba looked the picture of radiant health. He has hardly any pain in His neck now. I was called especially to see Him walk. He now walks so well and with such long strides that after about 100 rapid steps I began to breathe heavily. Beloved Baba walks the full L-shaped veranda of Guruprasad, a distance of about 100 feet, four times a day. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had these Blessings from Him.
"Beloved Baba, during those memorable 50 minutes, told about the increasing awareness of His work and love for Him all over the world, especially amongst the student world in the States. Now more and more people are being drawn to Him like iron filings to a giant magnet. All should be prepared to see the changes after November this year. From June onwards, He says that He will have to undergo intense suffering for our sake and that this was the last period of His seclusion. He also told me about the spread of His work at Myrtle Beach and other Centers."
