'mine and the world' - and the beginning of the NEW WORLD. The trouble is the beginning of this New Humanity cannot be effected until Baba breaks His silence - which means dropping His body. One cannot imagine a world without Baba, a Man-Baba Unit.
Then again, when one sees daily what is only one iota of His suffering, one cannot help but wish He would drop His body. One really feels like begging Him to finish His suffering, and let the whole world, (including myself) go to hell or annihilate itself through war. Then again - one sees that oneself is but a mere infant before the Ever-blissful, Ever-suffering God and that He will do what He will when He wills. But Baba tells us we can allay some of His suffering and even help Him with His work by trying not to do anything which might displease Him, and be obedient to His orders and be happy. BE HAPPY. (Something like this: "Daddy has a lot of work to do. So do happily whatever little jobs He gives us to do and when He calls us, come with smiling faces").
Baba takes time off from His work to play with us and often reminds us in the play that He is God, and that God is playing with us: that we should be careful not to allow His familiarity with us to become the cause of our slackness in obedience to Him. A few weeks ago, Baba took us to see Charlie Chaplin 's film, "Limelight " and He enjoyed it. After-wards He said, "How fortunate Charlie is that I have seen HIS film and enjoyed it". Since that time most mornings we have seen films. These consist of Eruch reading out selected pieces of newspaper articles - both tragic and comic. Baba particularly enjoyed one little article about two married partners travelling in a railroad carriage when an argument developed into a free-for-all fight about which way an electric fan should be directed - each party wanting it. Just at the height of it a man appeared with a gun and threatened to shoot them all. Baba, Himself, enacted the 'tough with the gun' perfectly.
Baba uses the films to show us the `unreality of the world'. We go to see the films and if we enjoy it we get so much absorbed into it what we imagine real men and women are doing it. When it ends we recognize the unreality of it - no actual existence - appearance only. Creation itself is only a 'film' with each individual life just one 'little film' - all within a great film. Our little joys and sorrows, successes and failures, our likes and dislikes — in short — all our personal preoccupations with ourselves and others - in relation to ourselves seems so real. Eventually the film must end and we pass away. So on until we awaken to the fact that we are all only acting' a little film. As the film unrolls we then realize ourselves as the one eternal Infinite existence. So long as we identify ourselves with it, it continues to keep unrolling along.
