20130610 – Human nature is to complain about physical discomfort

The previous few days, Baba had ordered Dara Hansotia to meditate early in the morning, but he was often disobedient. Later that day, Baba asked him, “Why didn’t you meditate as I asked? I gave you special instructions about it.”

Dara complained that it was so bitterly cold at 3 A.M. that he could not concentrate well. Baba countered, “If cold makes you recede from the spiritual path, how will you ever progress? To complain about extreme cold in winter, too much heat in summer, and rain in the monsoon is a tendency of human nature. If at any time pretexts are ready, how on earth are you to progress in the path?”
