Obedience to Guru’s orders

In late May, Jhagirdar, one of the school teachers, invited the Master and the mandali to his house for tea. For Jhagirdar’s sake, Meher Baba explained:

God can be seen. No matter what religion or faith a person may adhere to, once the veil of illusion is lifted by the Guru he sees God. The only difference lies in the means adopted to remove the veil.

It is important not only that one obeys a Guru’s orders but how one obeys. A Guru may tell you to do anything. And after doing it, he may blame you for it! He may scold you, asking why you did that. However, you should not reply that you did it according to his order; on the contrary, you should humbly say it was your mistake and ask his forgiveness.

“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 4482).
