UNSEEN AND IMPERCEPTIBLE

Meher Baba

 
On July 22nd [1948], Bhagirath and his wife, Kokila, visited Baba when he was with the mandali in the Ice Factory bungalow. They lived in the same building, and Baba remarked to Kokila, "I am everywhere!"

"But how can we know it?" she asked.

Handing her a fresh rose, Baba stated, "Can you see its fragrance?" Kokila replied she could not see it.

"But it does have a fragrance, doesn't it?"

"Yes, certainly."

Baba explained, "As the fragrance is hidden in the rose, in the same way my presence is hidden in every heart — unseen and imperceptible."
