Symbols of the world's religions



Meher Baba

The infinite embraces all expressions of life. Spirituality does not need renunciation of worldly activities. It means the internal renunciation of mundane desires. Mere asceticism does not lead to spirituality.

Perfection cannot be perfection if it shrinks from the dual expressions of nature and tries to escape from entanglements. It must assert its dominion over all illusions, however attractive and however powerful. A perfect being functions with complete detachment in the midst of the most intensive activity and in contact with all forms of life. Divinity includes all that is beautiful and gracious.

Every one of you has to help in My work according to your individual capacity; and you have to be in touch with the world in accordance with the work that lies in store for you. I will teach you how to move in the world, yet be at all times in inward communion with Me as the Infinite Being.
