LOVE GOD AS HE OUGHT TO BE LOVED

Meher Baba

 
Since in the very beginning imagination gave a twist to substance and importance to shadow, we, who are eternally free, find ourselves bound, having lost our original self in the maze of illusion. Therefore, despite possessing infinite bliss, we have to experience misery, worries, doubts, failure and helplessness.

When in a flash real knowledge comes, we are not what we seem, but are that infinite one. All worries disappear, because in reality sukh (pleasure) and dukh (misery) do not exist. To get rid of this persistent ignorance and to know the true value of reality we have to experience God; and God, who is the breath and life of our lives, can only be experienced through honest love.

We have to love Him silently and honestly, even in our everyday life. While eating, drinking, talking and doing all our duties, we can still love God continuously, without letting anyone know. When God is found, you can have no idea what infinite bliss and peace is gained.

I give you all my love so that some day you can love God as He ought to be loved.
