FIND YOUR PERSONAL PATH LEADING TO ME
Another in the group said, "Baba, we try to do this, but often we fail in our attempts." At this point Baba asked Eruch to relate the answer that Baba had given when someone asked Him a similar question in the Hamirpur District. The gist of this was: "I [Baba] tell you to love Me because I am the Ocean of Love; I am everywhere, in each drop. So it is given to every drop to participate in My divine sport and to find its way of loving Me. Honest and whole-hearted efforts will help you to find your personal path leading to Me."
Another person opened his heart: "Intellectually we understand what You have conveyed, but our attachments are so compelling that we are stuck in worldly things."
Baba consoled him: "My loving remembrance will gradually awaken discrimination in you which will give you the required strength. Just think how many times you have assumed male and female forms, how many children you have had, how much you have worried over this and that; it was all self-created. If you think you are bound, bound you are. Don't lose heart. Remember Me and love Me more and more."
And then He added, "But loving Me is not as easy as eating sweets [laddoos]."
