Progress depends upon internal help


[Personal interviews]

Question: She feels unhappy being unable to help others as she wants on account of doubts arising in her mind.

Baba: She can’t help if doubts come into her mind. This feeling of not being able to help others is in itself spiritual.

Question: Can one attain to perfection immediately after coming in contact with a Master?

Baba: In some cases, yes. In others, it [progress] is very gradual. It all depends on internal help. It does not necessarily mean that coming into contact with me will make you realized at once. If that were the case, the Jews who were near Jesus all the time and in his immediate contact would not have crucified him. You will understand. I will help you spiritually.

Question: It is a torture to feel one is hard up, unable to help or do anything by way of service to others.

Baba: This is very noble. She will be as she wants. Let that desire remain, and she will improve. This contact will help her. My blessings.
