ON IRRESPONSIBLE GODHOOD

Meher Baba

 
A crazy beggar used to say now and then, "I am the king of this world." People used to laugh at him and mischievous children teased him. If a real king were to say that he is a king, nobody would laugh at him.

God is one and Bundas (human beings) are innumerable. The Bunda who becomes spiritually perfect is Khuda. Until you yourself see and realize God you are a Bunda; and in this imperfect state if you say, "I am God," naturally people will call you a Kafir. So try to see and realize God and when you achieve the Goal you may safely say that you are God.

Only three things are of real worth; they are God, Sadguru and Love. These three are almost one and the same. Try to create love within you — real and sincere love for God or your Guru. A Sadguru is a personification of love. So keep on thinking of him and loving him.
