THE RIGHT TIME
Mani S. Irani
Even now as I re-read that letter, I again receive from it the clean fresh fragrance of self-facing, which leads soonest to self-effacing. I want you to know that your letter was read to BABA the One true Friend. May His compassion hold your hands to His daaman, ever. I recall Baba saying to someone: "It is not really your love for me that matters, it is My love for you that counts."
I like your line, "When it is right in His Name, I will walk," for isn't that true of everyone? Though their legs carry them fast they are truly lame whose feet are not set on the main road to God.
