TEARS FROM THE BONDAGE OF LOVE
When I returned to Sheela's, dear Heather came to read out certain things in connection with the Trust. Something had happened, and I'd received a really abusive letter. The Meherabad Mandali felt very hurt on my behalf, as that letter was directed towards me as well as other Trustees. I had already replied to it, but the Meherazad Mandali thought it better to give a proper reply.
A reply was written, and Heather brought it to me. She read it out, and we talked.
"I felt disturbed because of that letter. I spent a restless night," I told her. "But the next day, when I thought it over, I sent a short, loving reply to the party concerned. I felt as if I had been relieved from a burden. I felt very, very happy thinking about how this party has helped me, so that I became free from such a burden connected with the Trust."
Later on, I took dinner very late and then went to bed at 11:00 p.m. I reflected on how much the Meherazad Mandali loves me, and how we are united in His love. No one can understand this, because this unity is internal. This unity can never be broken under any circumstances. I closed my eyes, and tears came out of them from the bondage of love. Again, I felt very, very light, as if the burden was lifted. Then I slept.
