Power of Baba’s words

After Don had worked several months on the Discourses, on a subsequent visit to Meherazad, Baba asked him how the work was progressing. As sometimes happens in any project, Don was apparently at a low ebb in his vitality, and without thinking he blurted out, “Almost finished now, Baba, but I don’t know how much good all this work will do.”

Baba looked surprised by his comment and made his accustomed gesture for Don to continue his thought. “Well, I hear so many people say that words, if anything, obscure Truth, and the mind finally cannot grasp Truth. Even some of the people who love you most dearly say that even Baba’s words can well be left aside in the pursuit of God-realization.”

“People say that about Baba’s own words?” he almost exploded, he was so angry.

Don nodded mutely, “Yes.”

Quite upset, Baba continued his gesticulations rapidly as Eruch spoke them to Don.

“You must understand that whenever Baba gives out words for his lovers to use and read, he attaches a spiritual energy to them – something like an atomic spiritual bomb! This is especially true in God Speaks. Then, when one reads those words, even if he does not understand even one word of what he reads, a part of the spiritual energy will be absorbed by that person. And this energy will be very important for that person in his spiritual progress.”

Baba concluded, “It is your duty, Don, to tell people what Baba has said, and to tell them to work with and read Baba’s words, as this will be a great help in their spiritual ongoing.”
