“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. It is Baba’s living experience that there is only One Reality, and all else is illusion. What is all this that we see and experience? Our staying here, my giving you explanations, even my being the Avatar is all a dream. Every day, you are dreaming; every day, you wake up and experience the same dream over and over again.

You are all sleeping, and in your sleep you dream of me. I tell you that you are dreaming, and you reply, “Baba, you are here, we see you; how could it be a dream?” But whatever you are experiencing here is all a dream. When you wake up in Reality, you will experience that all this was a dream.
