20130520 – On obeying Baba’s orders

In the evening of February 7th, Baba gave an explanation to the mandali about obeying his orders:

Suppose A comes to me at noon and says that he is thirsty and that I should give him a cold drink, considering the weather conditions and time. Now suppose B comes at night in cold, chilly weather and says that he is thirsty. I may prescribe hot coffee for him, considering the prevalent cold temperature. Now if B remonstrates and mentally argues about why A was given a cold drink, it is nonsense. He must only obey.

It is the same with saints and prophets who have set down different doctrines and rules for attaining the same Goal of Truth, for these doctrines were given at different times and under different conditions. These doctrines are, therefore, not to be mistaken for any error or superiority of importance of one over the other. They are ways to reach the Goal, Therefore, no argument, no discussion, no remonstrance.

So you should listen; always listen to my command. Obey my orders and each of you will eventually gain something–each according to his own worth. The spiritual Ganges is now flowing at Meherabad. So wash your face and feet with its waters if you are not destined to drink it. Time is passing and vain discussions will take you nowhere.
