Truth is infinitely simple

On November 18th, Baba gave this message to that small group of passengers [on the ship M. V. Circassia]:

“Truth is infinitely simple and to realize it is naturally also easy. Complications are not natural to unity because duality is based on complications. Books, philosophies and different terms, all lead to confusion and contradiction if not applicable to one’s spiritual tendency. God-Realization means living in and with God in every thought and action – to be so spontaneous as to naturally express divinity through every thought and deed consciously. It is divinely and consciously automatic.

When you are asleep or awake, conscious or unconscious, eating or not, with people or alone, amidst activities or in solitude, you continue breathing automatically. Your breath is constant and always with you. So must God be in and with you automatically, and at the same time consciously, in every aspect of your life. It is to be simple, practical and livable in the ordinary run of life, natural and easy to maintain in all your worldly activities.

Belief, trust and faith are all illusory phenomena if not based on conviction through personal experience. Ignorant persons seek to point out the faults and weaknesses in others instead of finding them in themselves; and for some, to criticize Truth is their life’s work, for when they fail to gain it, they grow despondent and turn against it.

The apparent is not real. Under many a life’s complicated problems are hidden some of the simplest truths which the veil of ignorance obscures from human vision.

Do not bother about believing in me. Be prepared to believe in your Self. Have faith in your own capacity for longing for Truth. Only then will you know Truth in its pure and infinite simplicity. Only then will you come to know who I am.”, p1882
Nov, 1937; Aboard the ship Circassia
