You become what you think of deeply

On Sunday, 22 September, Baba asked the women, “Who was it who said, ‘Unless you lose yourself, you cannot find yourself?’ ” …

It means three things in one:

first, love God so much that you forget yourself;

second, sacrifice your carnal desires for the soul; and

third, complete resignation to God’s will.

And when you love too much, you do forget yourself. Now how to do that practically? Love for other things like men, women, cars, dogs, et cetera, comes spontaneously. It is no gift, but spontaneity; it is natural. Loving God comes by practice and by process to a certain point. But loving God most is a gift.

To love Baba, you need to think of Baba. If you think of Baba, you do not think of yourself. The more you think of Baba, the less you think of yourself. So, to love God so much that you forget yourself means that you think of God so much that you can no longer think of yourself!

By thinking continually, you become what you think of deeply. The mind makes one [become] what one thinks of deeply.

If you think of Baba all the time, you cannot think of yourself. If you don’t think of me, you will remain unmoved. Only when Rano thinks of Nonny* does she feel bad. When she doesn’t think of her mother, there is no feeling., p2151
