THE REAL DOING

Meher Baba

 
One day a Perfect Master told a disciple to take a job, to do some service. The next day he told him "Don't do any work, don't take a job." The third day the disciple was told to arrange to get married; on the fourth day the Master said "Don't marry."

The disciple got confused and asked, "But why do you keep wanting me to undo everything you order me to do?"

The Master explained: "What you understand as 'doing' is in fact undoing. Everything that you do by your own will is undoing. Everything that you do and undo by My Will is the real doing."
