LOVE ONLY GIVES AND GOES ON GIVING

Meher Baba

 
When love draws you to Me, don't ask for anything. When you are in My presence, be a silent recipient. Ask and you lose. Love has no questions and hence expects no answers. Love itself is the answer to all questions. The more you love Me, the less you question. Love is eager to respond to the slightest wish of the Beloved, and there is no scope for why and wherefore while obeying the Master. When in my sahavas (company) be attentive and receptive to what I may say, but do not question.

Pampering the intellect brings forth innumerable questions. All these questions can be answered but that is not spiritually indispensable. Mere intellectual explanations will not take you out of the muddle of your mind but will puzzle you all the more. Try to grasp what I have already said. To demand anything from the beloved is an insult to love. Love only gives and goes on giving till the will of the Beloved alone manifests through the lover.
