Opposition helps

Baba_NewYork_1931

An artist, a very fine man and much interested.

Q. Explains that he has waited for this meeting. He has encountered opposition in many directions.

Baba: There lies the “fun of the game,” to face and encounter difficulty. If not, life becomes dull and monotonous. One can find spirituality only through opposition. One encountering opposition in life becomes enduring, determined, and unaffected like the wall that stands erect and unaffected against the continued strokes of the ball thrown against it. Art is divine. It can only be rightly expressed if opposed, to bring out the inner beauty.
