Internal Silence, The Inner Battle – Part 3 (Final)

Now, while you are thinking of the Divine Theme chart, its explanation, figure, color, et cetera, if, in spite of your efforts, other thoughts interfere, what will you do? You have to try not to let them, not with fear but with love for Baba.  If you have these thoughts, do not despair that you have failed and are unable to observe internal silence. You cannot keep your mind free of thoughts – even for twelve seconds. That I know.

Continue putting up a fight with all these thoughts – whether you win or the thoughts win, this is not the point at issue. It is no concern of yours. You have to put up a fight, sincerely and continuously. Then my key will turn in such a way that you will really get various thoughts. It is because I want you to fight the battle and win.

You have simply to concentrate on the chart, the explanation, figure and colors which will automatically enable you to keep your mind away from other thoughts. Where is the question of a fight if you do not get other thoughts? And, for my own reasons, I want you to keep on fighting mentally during these hours.

Do not lose without a fight. Do not take defeat lying down without fighting against the strongest of thoughts.

Here Baba called up two men from the gathering, a strong, stout person and the other, Feram Workingboxwala, quite the opposite – lean and weak. Pointing to them, he explained:
Look at these two men. One is quite strong and big, and the other quite weak. If the weak one is afraid of his opponent’s appearance and gives up the battle, the other wins without a fight. And in this there is no credit. But if the weakling, in spite of his lean figure, is spirited enough to face his opponent, however strong, he will at least give a good fight.

So you have not to despair, but to give a strong fight. Picture Feram, the weakling, fighting an enemy who does not exist. That would be like waving his fists in the air. It is foolishness – madness. So, for a fight, there must be an opponent. The more formidable a foe, the more spirited the fight, and the more creditable the victory and result. So continue with the fight of mental reaction without fear.
