Think less of yourself

 

[Interview]

Baba: Anything to ask?

[She just looks at Baba]

Baba: And in reality, from the spiritual viewpoint there is never a need of explanations. It is to be felt and experienced. One can, by reading books and having theories, get some intellectual understanding of Truth but that is not real understanding. One must experience Truth, be able to live Truth, and realize Truth.

Question: IS it difficult?

Baba: Very easy, if one takes it to mind.

Question: How?

Baba: So easy, but people make it so complicated that it seems like a gigantic task. I will tell you. Think much of others and very little of yourself. Just try. When  you have a scarf and she [pointing to a lady] needs one, spare your scarf for her. Even if she has something more, and you nothing, don’t feel it. This is a simile. Don’t take it literally. It is also simple. I in help you spiritually. Think less of yourself.
