East-West Gathering – Conversations with lovers: “I just want your grace and that would settle all accounts in a flash” – Part 2 (Final)

Aloba recited another couplet of Hafiz in Persian, which Baba translated: “The Master can turn this dust into the touchstone; he can bestow his grace by only a glance. Hafiz says, ‘I don’t want your full attention; just a side-glance of yours is enough to turn this dust at your feet into gold!’

“Harry, […]

Eruch was then asked to read 21 points which Baba had dictated. Eruch said, “Baba has given us 21 points, some not even as long as a line. They are not for the lovers of Baba, but for general use.” He read them out and Baba elaborated on some of them:

1. God […]

East-West Gathering – Conversations with lovers: “God cannot be divided. Yet we see everywhere these divisions!”

 

Another point is that God alone is and there is nothing but God. God is indivisibly one, and He is indivisibly in each and every one. He cannot be divided. Yet we see everywhere these divisions! What is this separateness? There are Anita, Beryl, Ella, Harry, Charles, and others. Why this separateness? Why […]

Baba smiled, and continued:

To love God, one should think of God, long for God and suffer the fire of separation until such longing reaches its utmost limits and is quenched in Union. But one who obeys the Master, who is one with God, need not suffer, for in obedience there is the grace of the Master. Even […]

The third point to which I want to draw your attention is titled “Love of Women and God.”

East-West Gathering – Conversations with lovers: “Can you tear yourself out of yourself?”

Baba continued:

… There are some who exist to hate others, to be jealous of others and make others unhappy. And there are some who exist to love others, to make others happy. One who has become one with God exists for all, both good and bad. Jesus Christ existed for others. To become […]

Death is like going to sleep and waking up in a new body

 

Eruch read out Baba’s message for that day:

He asked Anita, “Do you want to be one with God?”

Anita replied, “I just want to see you!”

Smilingly, Baba chided her, “How can you have two things — see me here, and see me as I really am?” He continued:
