What is meant by giving up ones life – Part 3

 

Those highly advanced in spiritual life never test anyone. They know whether the person concerned would do it or not. Therefore, the Perfect Ones have no “will.” When he himself (the Perfect Master) is in everyone, his work itself is his will. Those who are mindful of it, their every word, their every action is their Master’s will. But to live up to that standard, that degree of submission, is impossible.

Obedience to the Master’s will should not be mechanical, because it will then be monotonous, dry and uninteresting. Not only should it not be mechanical, but no thought of self at all, even for a second, should be there. How could these things be achieved? That is: it should not be mechanical and, secondly, no thought of self should be there. It is almost impossible, so what the disciple has to do is to consciously become the very will of the Master.

–Lord Meher (First Ed), p4142
