“As the Eternal Redeemer of humanity, I am ever at the junction of Reality and illusion”

In mid-May 1959, Baba began hinting more often that his universal burden was increasing greatly and “the time” was drawing near.
… These days maya is in full force and tries to oppose my work. Therefore, particularly those who live near me must remain very watchful. Knowing my love for you, maya awaits the opportunity to use your weaknesses. The moment you neglect my instructions, maya’s purpose is served. I have to put up a big fight with maya — not to destroy it, but to make you aware of its nothingness. The moment you fail to obey me implicitly, it tightens its grip over you and you fail to carry out the duties assigned to you. This adds to my present suffering.
In God there is no such thing as confusion: God is infinite bliss and honesty. In illusion there is misery, confusion, chaos. As the Eternal Redeemer of humanity, I am ever at the junction of Reality and illusion, simultaneously experiencing the infinite bliss of Reality and the suffering of illusion. With Reality on the one hand and illusion on the other, I constantly experience, as it were, a pull from each side. This is my crucifixion. I do not ever let go of my hold on Reality. Imagine for instance that the pull of illusion becomes too great. What would happen? My “arm” would be pulled out of its socket, but I remain what I am!
