Obedience is an offering from the lover to the Beloved

In response to the replies that the Westerners had sent to Baba reaffirming their love and obedience to him, Baba had this message sent to them on the 10th:

“Obedience is greater than love. Love is a gift from the Beloved to the lover, whereas obedience is an offering from the lover to the Beloved, and accepts any hardship and sacrifice. Obedience is the surrenderance of love to Love, in which the wish of the Beloved becomes the happiness of the lover.

When I say I am happy by your desire or willingness to obey me, you have already received my blessing that you will be able to do so — the happiness of the Beloved is his blessing to the lover.”

I send my love to each and every one of you.

“You cannot know me as long as you do not receive the gift of my love. But if you accept me as the Avatar, you can carry out my orders. And this obedience is far superior to love.” (www.lordmeher.org, p3792)

“Obedience is the way to win the grace of the Master.” (www.lordmeher.org, p5351)
