BLESSED IN A SPECIAL WAY

Eruch Jessawala

 
When God is in our midst as a man, we take Him for granted, we don't care about Him and so we neglect Him and are indifferent to Him, but even though He has left the scene, His Compassion is so all encompassing, it can be felt all the time.

Those who had not seen Him in the physical form, are blessed in a special way. They can love Him more forcefully, for what has not been seen, can be longed for with greater ardour.

To love Meher Baba without His being physically present is a true blessing because it is He who gives that love, and this blessing enables us to love Him more and more. He has fashioned His love in such a way that although He is not here, we can love Him more deeply and more forcefully when we think of Him, yearn for Him and long for Him.
