Special Instructions to His lovers (1/2): Impossible to understand His work

An important period for Baba people all over the world commenced on June 21. On May 4, 1948, a circular had been issued to all in the East and the West. It contained the information that Meher Baba would be engaged in a special type of spiritual work from June 21 to July 20, 1948. All His disciples, devotees and followers, both men and women, were to carry out any one of the following five orders for a period of one month:

1. Observe silence.
2. Fast, with one meal a day. Tea or coffee to be taken only once during twenty-four hours.
3. Feed a different poor person every day with your own hands, morsel by morsel.
4. Repeat orally every day, 100,000 times, any one Divine Name cherished by you.
5 a) Do not touch or carry money.
b) Do not touch any member of the opposite sex, excluding children under seven.
c) Do not hit anyone under any circumstances, even in jest.
d) Do not insult or abuse even when provoked.

In one of his letters, Frankenberg requested that Baba clarify the spiritual significance of the circular. The reply sent to him through Dr. Ghani stated: “To try to understand a Perfect Master from a limited, egoistic human standpoint is a sheer impossibility. By one action of His the Master perhaps serves many purposes on different planes. The only thing worth doing is to carry out the Master’s behests most sincerely.”

Actually, everything in the evolutionary creation is wrought solely by the Infinite Power of God, Who works in eternal silence – from behind the screen as it were – unknown, unfelt and even unsuspected by most players who are in the passing flashlight of the stage.
