“Ask and you lose!”

Lud [Dimpfl] returned the following day, and spent the morning and afternoon with Baba. At one point, Baba explained to him,

“I am the Ocean of Love. So whatever you do with love pleases me. When love draws you to me, don’t ask for anything. Only love. If you want to ask me questions, you could have done so through correspondence. But now that you have come here, be a silent recipient.

“Ask and you lose! Love has no questions, and hence expects no answers. Love is ever eager to respond to the slightest wish of the Beloved Master. There is no scope for why and wherefore while obeying the Master. To those who want to follow the Master, Hafiz has said: ‘About what you hear from the Master, never say it is wrong because, my dear, the fault lies in your own incapacity to understand Him.’

“In another couplet, Hafiz says to the impatient lover:

O dear, separation and union are none of your business;

seek only to relinquish yourself utterly to the will of the Beloved.
