“You have done more for yourself than you can ever imagine”

Ruano_Baba

Being in charge of the housekeeping and food, Ruano had been kept in the kitchen constantly, away from Baba. She became sad and jealous, and often wept over this. Nevertheless, she tried to do her job meticulously. Sometimes, while crying by herself in the kitchen, she would feel a gentle pat on the shoulder and turn to find Baba there. All her misery and loneliness would be dissolved by his touch. When he was about to leave Los Angeles, Baba consoled Ruano by informing her, “You have done faithfully and well a task you disliked. You have done more for yourself than you can ever imagine!”

“Constant prayer and selfless service are both vital in turning the mind away from worldly things and directing it toward spirituality.” (lordmeher.org, p1771)
