AND NOW IT IS TIME FOR US TO RETURN HIS LOVE
Mehera J. Irani
Now in the night at Meherazad, after we have sung Arti in Baba's room and next to Baba's chair, and I think of darling Baba and His Love for us all, and how He suffered fur us. And I remember all the little details of His beautiful Form, and I think of all the little incidents with Him ... of my first glimpse of Him at Sakori ... of Baba dancing and singing in the dawn light on the Post Office verandah ....
Baba was very beautiful. In every way He was beautiful. To look at Baba was beautiful; His eyes were beautiful; His hands were so slim and expressive; His feet and toes were beautiful; His legs were so strong and slender. And His voice was beautiful; His hair was so soft and shining and beautiful; and His skin was so fair and beautiful. Everything about Baba was beautiful.
And His Love for us all was beautiful: His keeping silence, His undergoing all the austerities and ruining His health with fasts and accidents, His doing His universal work, His taking the burden of suffering on Himself for the sake of each one of us was beautiful.
And now it is time for us to return His Love. You must keep loving Baba more and more, and make Baba happy with your love by remembering Him always. Think of Him and say His Name, and He will always help you. You love Him because He loves you, so be happy in His Love. Know that Baba is with you, and know that He loves you. And so be happy. He is the God-Man, and to be loved by the God-Man is so beautiful. How very fortunate you are.
Beloved Avatar Meher Baba Ki Jai!
