ETERNALLY NAKED

Meher Baba

 
When some of my devotees, through their zeal and enthusiasm, speak of me in the highest terms, it is natural for us to encourage them. But if, later on, that enthusiasm wanes and they speak of me in the lowest terms, then, although we do not encourage them, we should at least not check them, harass them, or try to stop them from saying what they feel.

It is not what the world thinks of us that matters, but what God knows about us that matters. Unless we are stripped of all egoistic tendencies and desires, and unless our soul attains its original naked state, we cannot embrace God the Beloved Who is eternally naked in His infinity.
