During a short stay in Poona in 1959, Meher Baba granted an informal interview to a group of members of the local press. Meher Baba told them, "Our very life should be as to be God's message of Truth in the world. If, in our everyday life, we manifest ‘Love-Service-Honesty', renunciation is achieved without renouncing the world."
One of them asked, "Meher Baba, what is the spiritual path, and what is the criteria for one being on the Path?
Meher Baba smiled and explained, "When you begin to think of yourself as being on the Path, then you are not. The Path is not a defined direction set apart from yourself. It begins and ends within yourself. It is not so much the more of a path added, but so much the less of the veil of ignorance. In short, The Path is "I-WANT-NOTHING."
"But although this denotes a freedom from wanting anything, even this desire for nothing is a want and a binding that has ultimately to be effaced before you reach the Goal and attain that total freedom from all want."
At this, one of the pressmen remarked, "Although one makes a determined beginning, one's enthusiasm slowly wanes when there seems nothing to show for the efforts, and this is followed by a feeling of mental depression."
Meher Baba said, "Whatever the efforts you make, whatever the failures that seem to result, whatever the despair that follows, all have their roots in the fact that you love yourself more than you love God. In loving yourself as wholeheartedly as you should have loved God, failures and despair stand up prominently before you. This is quite natural.
"Therefore do not let the fact of your depression depress you. Have you given thought as to where this depression was prior to its appearance? It has emerged unasked and as such it must vanish. Your forced efforts to overcome it will only imprint itself all the more on your mind and create further binding. So be completely indifferent and it will disappear.
"The solution is to love God as He should be loved. Love for God alone counts."
