You should be afraid of dishonesty but not weaknesses


Baba observed [referring to the difference of opinions among Hamirpur workers]: “Such differences of opinion among my men have been the same throughout eternity – even in the time of Krishna, Ram, Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad – they are always being brought to my notice. I am in the habit of listening to such disputes since eternity. It breaks the monotony!

“Until one realizes me, one cannot escape the ego; even advanced beings cannot escape the egoistic urges. The slightest touch of ego can bring down a fourth plane yogi. One is safe from it only after reaching the fifth plane. So now who else has some complaint?”

After the misunderstanding between Gaya Prasad and Keshav was ironed out, Baba commented, “I bring out weaknesses because I love you. Be honest; weaknesses are there. You should not be afraid of them. You should be afraid of dishonesty. Who doesn’t get bad thoughts? They are the foundation of life. No house can stand without its foundation.

“Thoughts may be best or worst, but one should take care of one’s actions. Had it not been for the weaknesses in everyone, there would have been no difference between me and you.”, p3452
