BE YE INHERITORS OF THE LIFE ETERNAL

Meher Baba

 
Since the soul, which is in bondage, can be redeemed only through Divine Love, even Perfect Masters, who attain complete unity with God and experience Him as the only reality, often apparently step into the domain of duality and talk the language of love, worship and service of God in his Unmanifest Being as well as in all the numberless forms through which He manifests Himself.

Love Divine, as sung by Hindu saints like Tukaram, as taught by Christian mystics like St. Francis, as preached by Zoroastrian saints like Azer Kaivan, and as made immortal by Sufi poets like Hafiz, harbours no thought of the self at all. It consumes all wants and frailties, which nourish the bondage and illusion of duality. Ultimately, it unites the soul with God, thus bringing to the soul true Self-knowledge, abiding happiness, unassailable peace, unbounded understanding and unlimited power.

Be ye inheritors of the life eternal, which comes to those who seek!
