PERFECT KNOWLEDGE OF DIVINE LOVE
It takes One who is Divine Love to awaken Divine Love. As each fresh cycle approaches and human nature becomes more receptive, fresh and higher glimpses into Divine Love are given by the Avatars to the world. Christ taught that love of your neighbor is second only to love of God. May it be that the Avatar of today, Meher Baba, when He manifests His true being to the world, will have even a deeper meaning to give to the concept of Divine Love. One thing is certain: God's Love is not perfectly understood by man. We cannot have perfect knowledge of Divine Love until our knowledge is perfect; so the Avatar will always be misunderstood.
How does Meher Baba want you to express your love? In selfless service done cheerfully and happily. This is His first and last order. Selfless service in all external actions as well as selfless service in internal actions. This is spiritual renunciation. It is continual, unceasing, this struggle for self-mastery, the road to perfect knowledge leading to perfect service.
