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, when will that be?” asked Baba.

“When we are fortunate to receive the grace of a Perfect Master!” Kenmore said.

Baba continued:

You are more fortunate to have the Avatar. My lovers are more fortunate to have God in human form in their presence. Just a glance from me can give you all you need — can turn your vision inward. You will be sitting here, without any outward change, but you will become what you really are. It will make an infinite difference.

“When will that be, Margaret? Harry?” asked Baba.

Kenmore said, “Well, the time comes when Baba gives that urge — that whim.”

In reply, Baba continued:

And that whim has no time — otherwise it would not be a whim. A whim has no time. It is all of a sudden. Tukaram, the Perfect Master, says:

“No amount of knocking your head at the feet
of a Perfect Master will give you that grace.
It happens at the appointed moment.”

You have to wait for that moment. The moment is near, and for that you have to love me wholeheartedly; otherwise you will miss it. If I knock at your door and you are asleep, I will go away!

“God is absolutely independent. The only way to approach Him is through love, through constant repetition of His name and invocation of His mercy.”
