WHAT ON EARTH WAS HAPPENING TO ME
What was Baba doing? Outwardly, Baba simply acted as if to him I were still just "Nonny's darling daughter," so that is how I behaved. But Baba knew exactly how to play me on his line. The more casually he acted toward me, the closer I was drawn to him.
One day we were walking in the hills with Baba and as was his habit, he strode out ahead and seeming to float effortlessly up the hill, with everyone else, even the mandali, struggling along behind. Suddenly I felt I must catch up with Baba. I put on extra speed, walking very fast. As I came alongside him, he turned to see who was there and then put out his hand to catch mine.
I wasn't breathless; I didn't have to hurry to keep up with him. I just went floating up the hill hand in hand with Baba.
