True love comes as a gift of grace

To those whose hearts are pure and simple, true love comes as a gift through the activising grace of a Master. Such love is energizing and life-giving. It breaks asunder the narrowness and the prejudices which separate man from man. It inspires man for selfless and creative action which contributes to the well-being of all, without distinction of caste, color, race, nationality, creed or sex. It lifts him from the slavishness of sanskaric attachments to the unhampered freedom of the divinely conscious soul. And it initiates him into the dynamic harmony of life in eternity.

Affirmation of the separative ego is the chief veil between man and his own divine self. But the doors of the heart have to be thrown open by the surrenderance of ego-affirmation, if God as the supreme beloved is to make his entry in the heart.

– Messages of Meher Baba, East and West, ed. Adi K. Irani, p53 (1944, Nagpur)
