Opposition helps

 

[Interview]

Baba: Happy to see you.

Question: He is an artist who has encountered opposition and is trying to find a dear way in the face of it all.

Baba: There lies the fun of the game—to meet opposition, to face and encounter it. If not, life becomes dull and monotonous. One can find spirituality only through opposition. But when you are facing it, if you are determined, it becomes enduring, just like a wall which stands erect, unaffected, against any number of balls thrown at it; the bails rebound with the same force with which they are struck against the wail. On encountering opposition, life becomes enduring, determined, and unaffected, like the wall that stands erect and unaffected against the continued strikes of the ball thrown against it. And art is a divine thing. It can only be rightly expressed if opposed, to bring out its inner beauty that lies behind. I will help you spiritually.
