Comparison of Writings of Inspired Poets and Scriptures

Francis was working on the notes that were to appear at the back of the book [Stay With God], and he was reading through various scriptures. One day Baba commented about them, putting the scriptures in their proper perspective:

The scriptures are like rotten bones rotted and are as food for worms. Theosophy and philosophy are like good bones rotted and are as food for vultures.

The writings of inspired poets are like fresh bones and are as food for dogs. The writings of spiritually advanced saints are like flesh and are as food for tigers. The writings by living Perfect Masters are like brain and are as food for men!

Good bones when rotted have some semblance of bone, but rotten bones when rotted are like filth.

So, you may go through the scriptures superficially — only to drive away the barking dogs when necessary; for instance, when you are called upon to answer the queries of the priests and the orthodox.

Put all your heart in the notes of Stay With God, which will turn out to be ever-fresh brain.
