UNLESS YOU HAVE ONE HUNDRED PER CENT LOVE FOR ME

Meher Baba

 
There are four general headings of obedience: (1) patriotic obedience, that of a soldier ready to lay down his life and die for his country; (2) paid obedience, that of a servant; (3) the obedience of a slave, the compulsory obedience of one who has no choice of his own; (4) the willing obedience of love.

There are four kinds of obedience in love: (a) literal, word-for-word obedience; (b) discriminatory, or the obedience of common sense; (c) complete obedience without pleasure; (d) complete obedience with pleasure. There is a fifth obedience which is very rare, absolute obedience, in which light becomes dark and dark becomes light because the Master says so.

It is impossible to obey me one hundred per cent unless you have one hundred per cent love for me and accept me one hundred per cent as God incarnate.

THE GOD-MAN, p. 298, C. B. Purdom
