CROSS THE BOUNDARY OF SHARIAT

Meher Baba

 
To change our outward religion for another is like going from one cage to another. Either cross the boundary of Shariat (outward forms of religions) and enter Tarikat (the spiritual path) or remain within the cage of the creed of your birth.

A man becomes wise by practising, not by preaching virtue. Ability in advising others about virtue is no proof of saintliness, nor is it a mark of wisdom.

In order to realize God and to gain the original state from which everything emerged, we should follow the creed that accords with our own conscience and stick to that path which best suits our spiritual tendency, our mental attitude, our physical aptitude, and our external surroundings and circumstances.
