I SEEM AS THOUGH I KNOW NOTHING

Bill Le Page

 
Towards the end of His life on earth, when the body had become very weak and ailing. Baba would say to Eruch that he was not to trouble Baba for replies to letters from his lovers, but to reply to them himself.

This troubled Eruch, and later as he sat in his cabin concerned over this new responsibility, a message from Baba was sent to him three times: 'I seem as though I know nothing, but know well that I know everything.' After the last one came Eruch wrote it down and put it on the wall of his cabin.

Around this time Eruch wrote a letter of comfort to a Baba lover whose husband had died, but later to his horror and apprehension he realised that by mistake he had sent the letter to another woman Baba lover.

Some two or three years later, the recipient of the letter suddenly appeared before Eruch and greeted him before he could say anything: 'How wonderful is my Lord, Beloved Baba, that He should get you to write that letter to me. You see, at that time my husband suddenly and unexpectedly left me and I was terribly distressed. No-one knew, but your letter came and truly comforted me with its assurance of Baba's love.'

Then Eruch remembered yet again Meher Baba's words: 'I seem as though I know nothing, but know well that I know everything.'
