20130607 – Stick to the Emperor and don’t leave him for any reason! – Part 2 (Final)



Stick to the Emperor and don’t leave him for any reason! I am in everyone; but if you catch hold of me, you will have the root of all creation in your hands. Then you will not need to go after the branches and leaves.

If you are lucky enough to catch hold of the Emperor, you should never, never leave him. Go on digging until you find water. Don’t keep changing the spot. If you get impatient, by digging two feet here and four feet there, you will never strike water. If you only dig a shallow well, you will get impure water. Only patient, laborious digging will result in your finding crystal-pure water; and for that, you have to exert energy and dig deep.

This path is not easy at all; and if you enter it, you will not find joy here. Therefore, I warn, think seven times before entering it! If you are after God, you will have to give up everything – your father, your mother, the whole world. You have to renounce each and every thing. Therefore, ponder well and then take your step. If not, leave this path, and attend to your worldly duties.

Once you fall for the path, don’t be afraid of anything in the world. “Who will look after my parents? How about my job? What will the world think of me?” All these thoughts are useless. If you had died, who would have looked after your near and dear ones? Those affected will care for themselves. God takes care of everyone. He is the true sustainer. Once you have entered the path, you should desist from such thoughts.

Try to be a lover of God. If you find out how to love Him, you may go mad. The real lover is never influenced by the world or what people think of him; he will not even care for his life. He will remain what he is – totally indifferent to the world, unashamed of anything.

Baba ended by stating on his alphabet board:

All rivers flow in me. I am the Ocean. Stop looking elsewhere and look only at the Ocean. By concentrating on me, you yourself will become the Ocean. To look at the Ocean means to carry out my wishes at all times.
