TOO TERRIBLE TO CONTEMPLATE

Meher Baba

 
We all are, in a way, hypocrites, inasmuch as we always try to justify ourselves, right or wrong. According to the Vedantists and the Sufis, God does everything; everything is done according to His Will and in accordance with His laws.

In a way, that is all right; but being short of one truth, the whole of it is not right. And the lack of truth is the lack of experience behind the assertion. Without having gained the actual experience, to act according to facts of experience is not only silly like a tutored parrot expressing love to a girl, but such assertions based on mere reasoning and logic lead to lust and dust.

The reactions of the actions based on such "ignorance of knowledge" are too terrible to contemplate, apart from other consequences like lunacy or nervous breakdown.
