Meher Baba

Now that Baba is physically among you, you feel the contact, but when I leave you, gradually this cools down. How to retain it constantly?

Well, do you feel constantly hungry? When you work hard, you get hungry. When you feel hungry, you take food, and then you forget about the food. So work for Me in such a way that you feel hungry for Me. Sometimes think of Me, sometimes work for Me, sometimes talk about Me, but not all the time. If you go on eating continually you will get indigestion!

Before you go to bed, say, "Baba, I entrust all that I did, thought or spoke, good and bad, to You." When you get up, say, "Baba, I now begin entrusting all — thoughts, words and deeds — to You." Say this just twice each day for five minutes, but with all your heart in it. Do that and make Me responsible for all you do or think. Then you are free;... but you must do it honestly. This much will be more than sufficient to maintain the contact with Me.

I am the Ocean; I can accept both flowers, coconuts and also filth. So throw everything in the Ocean with all your heart. This is a great thing if done wholeheartedly, otherwise it goes in your own pool of water which gets filthy because of your dirt.
