The meaning of faith is that one is not shaken by anything – part 1

On 27 September, Nadir Dastur came to Meherabad. In the course of a private conversation, he complained that he had lost money in business due to Baba’s advice and his friends were now ridiculing his continued faith in the Master.

Baba explained to him at length:

The meaning of faith is that one is not shaken by anything. Faith is the means whereby anything can be courageously accomplished.

Worldly people naturally worry about their families, but, in reality, everything is one big zero. How long will your connection with your family last? What do you know about your forefathers and, likewise, how long will your family members remember you after you pass away? They will forget everything. No one is going to remember anything or have any connection with you. All these present connections are only temporary; they are not permanent or everlasting.

You are now worrying about your family because of some monetary problems. Suppose that everything is all right and you have millions tomorrow. You will all live in comfort then. You will collect jewels and other things. But what about in the hereafter? Nothing is left! When the body drops, everything ends! Everything becomes useless – meaningless! Nothing! So, we Masters see far ahead, because only that which we give is permanent – a lasting connection. We do not pay attention to all these superficial difficulties.
