The Greater value

The Greater value

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center There is greater value in conquering the heart of a single enemy than in gaining victory over the bodies of thousands of enemies. The mind is capable of turning the bitterest enemy into the sweetest friend by constantly thinking well (charitably) of him. -Treasures from the Meher Baba journals, p10, ed Jane Haynes »

Your conscience is the best judge

Your conscience is the best judge

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center Neither praise nor blame should distract you from the path of your duty. Leave aside all other considerations; if your conscience tells you that you have discharged the duty properly, that is enough. Your conscience is the best judge. It is human to err, and there must be mistakes, you can only do your best. Always be in time, look after your work pers... »

An absolute turnover

An absolute turnover

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center Recently the Beloved has been telling us not so much of the close-at-hand breaking of His Silence, but of the monumental change that will come about on earth when He does so. One morning while we were sitting at breakfast with Baba, and a humming bird was hovering before a window-pane in ecstasy of its own reflection, we got to talking of His Silence. ... »

Beyond Time (A parable)

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center God has come again and again in various forms, has spoken again and again in different words and different languages the Same One Truth — but how many are there that live up to it? Instead of making Truth the vital breath of life, man compromises by making over and over again a mechanical religion of it — as a handy staff to lean on in times of adversi... »

“When my silence is broken and I utter the Word, infinite wisdom will be released”

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center On a previous occasion a month before (on 4 April), Baba had commented about Jesus to the mandali: Jesus sometimes used to tell his disciples things which they could not understand at all. But despite all that, they stuck to him wholeheartedly and followed him till the very end, because they understood this much, that the working of the God-Man was a s... »

“To follow me is to obey me”

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center When one man taking darshan expressed his desire to follow Baba, in response Baba explained: You want to follow me? Do you know what it means? It means to leave all and follow me. And do you know what it is to leave all? It is to leave everything, even your self, behind you. Mind, you have to follow me and not run ahead of me. This is so very simple, y... »

“The virtues of a man are nullified by a streak of pride”

“The virtues of a man are nullified by a streak of pride”

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center It is best if there is a balance between the head and the heart, but to combine them and keep them balanced is almost impossible. Even in small, petty matters, the intellect rules the heart and spoils its mood. Even as a little salt spoils an entire pail of fresh milk, so also the virtues of a man are nullified by a streak of pride in his character. -w... »

Attitudes for aspirants – Faith: Transition from faith to conviction

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center Eventually, faith must give way to conviction, for after all, faith is only faith. There are two kinds of experience—external and internal. External experience can result through the gross media. What we actually see of the gross world with our gross eyes gives us conviction of a sort, but there are occasions when even this conviction is based on incor... »

Attitudes for aspirants – Faith: In wholehearted faith relief will be found

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center One of the greatest things to possess is faith, which ultimately leads to conviction; and from conviction one day arises realization. There are no two kinds of faith. Faith is the last thing to be labeled. The only question is whether one has strong faith or weak faith. Some manifest faith only to the point of acknowledging forms and ceremonies, while ... »
