Symbols of the world's religions



Mani S. Irani

One wonders, is the result of any Baba-work to be measured in the scale of mathematics? Is actual numbers to be proof of the amount of struggle and work put into carrying out any project in His cause? For the Beloved, the only yardstick that can measure our efforts is our love for Him. And, as dear Kitty (Davy) says, "Baba shows His Love for us in allowing us to work in some way, with the ability we have."

Moreover, in allowing us to work, Baba works in His own way, not only through us but within us; for if we are a means for the doing of His work, the work is often His means for the undoing of our ego. While the people are given His message of Love and Truth, His lovers are given the opportunity to live His message — by developing more tolerance, charity, understanding and love for those with whom we are harnessed in the labour of love. And if with every step we take and every stumble we make, some of our ego is worn down we should rejoice, for then His work is really being done.
