“Obedience is just obedience, there is no questioning” – Part 1

Explaining a couplet of Hafiz, where the Master says “obedience is just obedience, there is no questioning,” Baba added:

You should be slaves of the Master, obeying even without thinking. If I order anyone to kill his child, he should obey me without having even a single thought about the deed.

I have explained so much; now, will your conscience accept obedience to me? Are your hearts ready to obey? Worldly people come, garland and worship me, and seek my blessings. I have not come for that. I mean this for all – the mandali, as well as you all who are near me today. To bow down to me, to perform my arti, to worship me is not what I have come for. These acts are all good with saints. With me it is different, it will not do. I expect more.

Why have you been called here? I have come to receive your love and I wish you to obey me literally, so that you may have the conscious experience of me. If that be not your purpose, then you have come on a sort of picnic! I want to say everything today, so that we may be free hereafter.

“You cannot know me as long as you do not receive the gift of my love. But if you accept me as the Avatar, you can carry out my orders. And this obedience is far superior to love.” (www.lordmeher.org, p3792)
