I COULDN'T PRY IT APART FOR HIM WITH A LEVER

Mani Irani

 
One man asks Baba to send a representative who will perform a 'miracle' (paranormal phenomena) so it can be proved, witnessed (tabulated and catalogued) in order to help non-believers to believe. He writes in good faith and thinks himself a seeker, but got 'spiritualism' and 'spirituality' so mixed up I couldn't pry it apart for him with a lever.

It's not easy to show the A B C of spirituality to intellectual giants (even if we can have a mite of the infinite patience Baba has with us). Heaven save us from these 'brainy' seekers who don't know that they don't know — I'm all for the unencumbered spontaneous ones who listen to their intuitions and read sermons in stones.
