Symbols of the world's religions



Meher Baba

I am very fond of having fun, but when I become serious I remain serious. With me, it is so from eternity. On gaining Realization, I gave up everything in eternity except my sense of humor.

I have discoursed on this before. This is called the avatar's leela — game or play. In that discourse, I have also spoken about other matters such as Christ's crucifixion. I am being crucified every second; but my merry, cheerful nature helps me bear the untold suffering.

While joking with me outwardly, have reverence for me in your heart. If you have no inner reverence, it is better you remain miles away from me. I am like fire! Fire dispels the cold and cooks your food. But if you try to play with it, it will burn you to ashes.

If inwardly you feel that I am the Avatar and the Highest of the High, then your outward behaviour will not affect that understanding. But if you have no inner understanding of the sort, then it is no use your expressing your love and reverence for me outwardly.
