SWEET REMINISCENCES

Meher Baba

 
During Baba's visit to the house of Sri V. V. Narayana Rao, he questioned Baba "Baba how to keep our contact with you, the Avatar, constantly."

Baba replied: "Well do you feel constantly hungry? When you work hard, you get hungry. When you feel hungry you take food and then you forget about the food. So work for Me in such a way that you feel hungry for Me. Sometimes think of Me, sometimes work for Me, sometimes talk about Me, but not all the time.

If you go on eating continuously you will get indigestion! Before you go to bed say "Baba I entrust all that I did, thought or spoke, good and bad to you. When you get up say: "Baba I now begin entrusting all thoughts, words and deeds to you." Say this just twice each day for five minutes, but with all your heart in it.

Do that and make Me responsible for all you did or think. Then you are free ... but you must do it honestly. This much will be more than sufficient to maintain the contact with Me."

"I am the ocean. I can accept flowers, coconuts and also filth. So throw everything in the ocean with all your heart. This is a great thing if done wholeheartedly, otherwise it goes into your own pool of water which gets filthy because of your dirt."
