Meher Baba

So before I discuss and decide about other matters let Me first explain a little about the setback. If I am Baba then I must know everything of the past, present, and future. Therefore, there should be no setbacks for Me in My work. Again if Baba is Baba, the setbacks cannot alter His plan. Hence, although I refer to such incidents as "setbacks," they are God-ordained.

This will give you a clue that in fact it was no one's fault in not getting the van. The plan was there; the setback was there. And I simultaneously felt that the plan would work out and that it would not work out. That is why I often reminded Elcha about the van.

This cannot be understood by you, just as you cannot understand what Christ really meant when He said, "Father! Why hast Thou forsaken me?"
