The method of love is direct

 

Questioner: It has been said that by breaking the through different hindrances  of lust, hate, and so on, one can develop true love. But your teaching is that by developing true love, one can break through these hindrances.

Baba: The method of love is direct. The other method is indirect and roundabout. It is like reaching the mouth [for eating] with your hand from behind the neck.

Questioner: Do you want us to accept everything you tell us blindly, whether we understand it or not, or may we ask questions?

Baba: No, I do not want you to accept everything blindly. I like discrimination and a sense of humor. You may ask questions, but the most necessary ones.
