Symbols of the world's religions



Mani S. Irani

Your friend loves Baba, but is going through a difficult time learning the hard way, and only Baba knows what the real lesson is — for we learn with Baba that it is seldom what we just outwardly see and understand. I know he's very fond of you, but he's feeling very lonely inside. He has Baba's Love — he very much needs Baba, and he needs all the loving understanding which you alone as a near friend can give.

If he's on slippery ground, he needs the steady hand of someone on firm ground, and much tact and kindness, for he's one of those who is wary of being cornered or fenced in; although he must know by now that any give-and-take with Baba is a matter of complete free will.

You can only be bound to Baba with love, a binding as free as the air or ocean (and as strong), a binding in which we give because we long to give, in which we receive because He is always giving. Anyway, dear, Baba is working through it all, and it will turn out as He wants it, which is always the best.
