Meher Baba

In My conscious state I limit Myself, so too in the conscious state of My Circle, I set also limits and when I choose I free them from those limits — but in My own time. Until then be happy, content, and know it is all My doing. If you could understand but a little how great is My love for you, you would feel all was worthwhile if it is to please your Beloved.

When I draw the curtain you will understand all and smile at My game. It is all illusion. The pain of yesterday is no more — the joy of a week ago is no more — only the present exists and the love you feel for your Beloved. The pain caused from the separation from your Beloved is as real as is the happiness that union with your Beloved is real.

But as I have once said, "The unconscious self which is God, to become conscious, has to go through this apparent opposite process of duality to become aware of its oneness with God and give that conscious union with God which makes lover and the Beloved one."

You make the effort and I will give you the victory. It is a divine struggle with purpose behind it. Don't fight against it.

         'Tis in vain the bars to beat
                  Effort and struggle are vain
