FEW REALLY ATTEMPT TO SURRENDER

Meher Baba

 
This is my song:

For the rich, I am the richest;
For the poor, I am the poorest;
For the literate, I am the most literate;
For the illiterate, I am the most illiterate.

Thus I am one of you, one with you
And one in you, and we are all one.

To have my real darshan is to find me.
The way to find me is to find your abode in me.
And the only one and sure way to find your abode in me
Is to love me.

To love me as I love you, you must receive my grace.
Only my grace can bestow the gift of divine love.
To receive my grace you must obey me whole-heartedly
With a firm foundation of unshakeable faith in me.

And you can only obey me spontaneously as I want
When you completely surrender yourselves to me
So that my wish becomes your law
And my love sustains your being.

Age after age, many aspire for such a surrender
But only very few
Really attempt to surrender to me
Completely as I want.

He who succeeds ultimately
Not only finds me
But becomes me
And realizes the aim of life.
