Love your Master in the other person

 

Questioner: When a young aspirant meets young women, he is susceptible to thoughts of lust. On the other hand, if he avoids them entirely, he is likely to withhold a great deal of love. Is there any way out of this dilemma?

 

Baba: Free mixing of the sexes, as in the West, is on the whole good, but if the aspirant feels within his mind the slightest flutter of impure thoughts, he should stand aside.

But he must love, and in order to avoid impure thoughts, he should keep in his mind the thought that in the other person he is loving the Master.
