YOU STICK TO ME, BUT I HOLD YOU TO ME
Mani S. Irani
I've been reading Shakespeare again after many years and can't
get over the profound philosophy packed in some of his simplest
lines. One line in Hamlet I particularly love that makes me think
of Baba and all us lucky ones: "The less they deserve, the more
merit is in your bounty...." For isn't it perpetually amazing why
Baba cares for us and gives us so much of His love, we whom Baba
sometimes refers to as "pearls" and at other times as "secondhand
furniture"...? And how little our all is in return!
Baba once said, many years ago, "You love Me greatly, but My love for you
all is greater. You stick to Me, but I hold you to Me. If I really
tested you in my God-way, you couldn't be able to stay with Me for
a day longer." Beloved Merciful Baba!
