Every minute is a sort of minor war

On the 24th, a 60-year-old man came to see Baba and said, “Although I have had many minor turning points in my life, I feel today that the main turning point of my life has at last arrived by meeting you.”

Baba smiled and explained to him:

“Yes, that turning point has to arrive in each one’s life.

It is like a war. Every day, every hour, every minute of a man’s life is a sort of minor war between the heart and mind, emotion and intellect, good and bad. And when these individual conflicts spread out and develop, the collective result eventually takes the shape of a big, worldwide war which can never be avoided by any number of peace conferences, unless and until the very root cause is removed.”
