OBSTACLES ARE MEANT TO BE OVERCOME

Meher Baba

 
It has been seen that spiritual workers must necessarily be confronted with many obstacles, but obstacles are meant to be overcome. Even if some of them seem to be insuperable, you have to do your best to help others irrespective of results or consequences.

Obstacles and their overcoming, success and failure, are all illusions within the infinite domain of Unity. Your task is already done when it is performed wholeheartedly. You are steadfast and one-pointed in your desire to help my cause of awakening humanity to the sole reality and the ultimate worthwhileness of God and God alone, and you will get many opportunities for spiritual work. There is ample scope for work in this field.

You must do your work without worrying about consequences irrespective of success or failure, but you may be sure that the result of work done in this spirit and with this understanding is sure.

Through the untiring activities of spiritual workers, humanity shall be initiated into the new life of abiding peace and dynamic harmony, unconquearable faith and unfading bliss, immortal sweetness and incorruptible purity, creative love and infinite understanding.
