A tangible expression of the universal suffering

[About Satara automobile accident …]

When someone asked Baba, “Why should these things happen? Why can’t you avert them?” his reply was: “What the Divine Will has decreed must and will happen, and if I am the Divine Personification you believe me to be, then the last thing I would do is to avert it or avoid it.” (www.lordmeher.org, p4136)

Nobody suffers in vain, for true freedom is spiritual freedom, and suffering is a ladder towards it. Man unknowingly suffers for God, and God knowingly suffers for man. (www.lordmeher.org, p4135)

One day he traced a circle on the spot of the fracture with his finger and gestured, “The suffering of the whole universe is concentrated on this little spot. This is a tangible expression of the universal suffering I bear.”

But, in spite of his physical agony, he remarked, “I am happy. It is as I wanted it.” (www.lordmeher.org, p4137)

It is as if the mental suffering of the universe wants to crush me. But the infinite bliss I experience and the love I have for all sustains me, and the love of all my lovers supports me in the burden I carry. (www.lordmeher.org, p4140)

In this apparent helplessness, I declare again that everything except God is illusion; and that the only way to be united with this Self of all selves is love, sacrifice and unreserved and honest resignation to the Beloved’s Will.

I am the Self of all. I am the Ultimate Goal. So love me with all your honesty and whole being. (www.lordmeher.org, p4140)
