BETTER LIFE WITH MY MOTHER
Questioner: What must I do for better life with my mother who does not approve of what I do for you and for your work?
BABA: Think more of her and less of yourself. That will make matters adjusted; because even if you think at times that your mother is in the wrong and you are in the right, or sometimes she is in the right and you are in the wrong, still it matters little if you think of her, and not only about her, but also about all others in the same way. In short, just think less of yourself and more of others. Real happiness is to make others happy. (The words had a deep impression on her. After a moment's silence Baba added:) Very dear soul, I will help you spiritually. My love is Pure and Infinite.
Questioner: Thank you very much. I am so very happy to have met you. Should I tell my mother regarding my feelings for you.
BABA: Yes, I know. But not for a few days. Later on you can. You will feel. I will tell you somehow.
