“If you want to be free, free you are!” – Part 1/2

On Sunday, 11 January 1959, a Christian, who wished to “lead a perfect life of love and service in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ,” expressed a keen desire for Baba’s guidance…

Baba then asked, “What is it that you want?”

The Christian replied, “I want to behold a vision of Jesus Christ, and to follow his life of love and service. I am worried because I am unable to do it.”

When Baba asked if his belief in Jesus Christ was genuine, the Christian replied in the affirmative. Baba then stated:

Were you to really have that belief in him, would there be any need for you to worry about how you should carry out the teachings of Christ? Search your heart for the answer.

You long for a vision of Christ. It would no doubt help you to some extent to lead a life of love and service, but would it be enough by itself to help you attain the perfect life you yearn for? You are imperfect. You want to be perfect so as to lead a perfect life. But all aspirants would want what you want. And who would not want a vision of Christ? Only you do not know that within yourself you already have what you want. Then why is it that you do not get what you want?

If you look deep within yourself with complete honesty, you will find that you do not really want what you think and say you want.
