My Dear Darwin,
I have your very loving letters and poems, and do so much appreciate
your spirit of love, devotion and service.
I know how you and your dear wife feel, and have always been helping
you spiritually, as you already experienced.
I am glad to know about the loving ones of the group that you have
formed, and who wish to start a retreat if plans succeed.
Whether that retreat on earth is established or not, I do really
appreciate the spirit of brotherhood and Love that has been awakened,
and consider it as a spiritual retreat already established within,
which is much more substantial and real than any earthly home or
structure built for the purpose.
The true spirit is there, already awakened, and if it is fostered and
kept up with warm feelings of Love and brotherhood, it will eventually
bear results that will be helpful in the development of spiritual
understanding of life and things pertaining to life, and wherever such
spirit of Love and brotherhood prevails, inner light and guidance
always follow invariably.
And rest assured, I will always be with you and the other dear ones
working in unison in the spirit of Love, and my spiritual help will
always be forthcoming wherever I am, wherever you all are. So if a
retreat is managed and established, alright. But if it is found
difficult to arrange for one, do not despair, but keep up the SPIRIT
and carry on the useful work even without a retreat, and I will always
help you. I give you and your work all my blessings....
And don't worry, my dear Darwin, for being unable to come to me and
meet me for want of material means. Those who are united in Love are
always in spirit and know no separation.
