“Realization is never a matter of chance”

24-Baba-in-Bangalore-1939-40-vol

On Wednesday, 5 May 1937, Baba gathered the Western men and women and narrated this short tale illustrating obedience:

Once a Master asked his disciple to wake him at 5:00 A.M. by knocking on his door. The disciple kept vigilantly awake all night until 4:55 A.M. He then dozed for ten minutes and awoke at 5:05 A.M.

Meanwhile the milkman who used to come every day at five o’clock, arrived at his usual time and knocked on the door. The Master said, “Open,” and the universe was opened to the milkman! But this was ordained, not just chance.

Realization is never a matter of chance. It is such a big thing. It is all chalked out, all planned beforehand.
