Be firm as a rock in your faith

Delia De Leon with Baba

On 2 October 1938, Baba had written Delia DeLeon in England:

Be patient. Be calm. Be steady and firm as a rock in your faith and love for me. I can then use you as a channel for my work — the work of divine love for the upliftment of humanity.

As you know, I need none of you. I can work my will independently, but I have chosen, for my own reasons, a few to help me in that work….

Are you as I made you? The sanskaras you have, I gave you to work through for my work, so it is true to say you are as I made you. But the goal still remains for you, and all, to attain Perfection through duality. Remember, maya is my shadow, so indirectly it is me too. It is the means by which the soul, divine though it is but unconscious as yet of its divinity, must become conscious of its oneness with God.

Herein lies the riddle of the universe and my game too. And how can you help in this game of mine? By love and service. By control of your mind and moods and yes, weaknesses, which are there for the purpose of exercising control over them.

Often, the greater one’s love, the greater is the [tendency] to moods, because the pangs of separation are more acute. But I do not like moods, and therefore, to please me, which is one of the best ways of showing your love for me, try your best to overcome them., 1954
