Make love the highest ideal in life



Two young women were brought on the 25th as possible “spiritual aspirant” candidates to travel with Baba. Baba gave them this explanation about love:

The aim of life is to realize God. How? By making the highest ideal of religion our conduct in life. This noble ideal is love. The way of love alone is the best and easiest path — to love only God and none besides Him.

Material love is good, but it should be selfless and desireless. It should not have even a tinge of desire in it. Love should be absolutely devoid of lust, and it should be steadfast and unchanging… Mind’s tendency is that it always hankers after change — from one thing to another, one person to another, one place to another. Have love for only one and one alone., p1359
