“obedience is just obedience, there is no questioning” – Part 2 (Final)

A child is born and as he grows, his consciousness also increases. From childhood to youth, middle age and old age, but not a thought occurs to him as to from where and for what he has taken birth. Births after births pass in this way. He only thinks of worldly things, never about the Real thing. Rarely does someone become really awake. This dream is far too long. Hafiz says thousands of lovers out of love for God are rolling in the dust, but hardly one realizes Him. It requires cycles upon cycles for a man to get enlightened. Books say that even after eons, [only] one finds God. But this is the time when those who obey me will realize me.

It is important to obey me cheerfully. If that is not possible, at least obey. If I tell Raosaheb to kill his son, and if he does not do it cheerfully but does it anyway, still he would find me.

Search your own hearts and see whether you are prepared for such obedience. If your conscience is not prepared for it, then what should you do?

Everything is the play of the mind. If I wish, I could make the harmonium start playing itself. People would take me for God and would be ready to surrender themselves to me. But this would not be dedication to me, but to the playing of the harmonium. If a dead child is made alive, people are ready to obey — but this obedience would be to resurrecting the child.

“Our very life should be such as to be God’s message of Truth in the world. If, in our everyday life, we manifest love, service and honesty, renunciation is achieved without renouncing the world.” (LM online, 4482)
