LOST IN LOVE AND LOVE ALONE

Meher Baba

 
Before I explain my Fiery Life, I must say that for a Dnyani and lover, these attachments and forgiveness for attachments do not exist. For a Dnyani, nothing exists but God. To him everyone is God, everything is God, not merely through intellectual conviction as I said yesterday, but by actual and continual Becoming. He knows through continual and eternal conviction, and experiences from the Beginningless Beginning to the Endless End, that he and he alone IS.

My message to the world, which has been the same throughout eternity, is love. This love has two aspects, and both aspects are real. Any other attachment which we, through ignorance, call love, is nothing but maya.

Love for God, Personal or Impersonal, with intense longing for realizing oneness with the Beloved, is one aspect of real love. Such a lover forgets everything, forsakes everyone, and annihilates himself in the fire of Divine Love.

In the second aspect, a person loves humanity at large as being part and parcel of God. Here, the lover forgets his own interest, forsakes his own happiness, and tries to make others happy or uplifted. If this love reaches its height, here also, like the divine lover, the lover of humanity forgets himself completely, and is lost in love and love alone.

My Fiery Life, which begins from November 15th [1952] and ends at the end of April 1953, is based on this love by which the lover is lost in the Beloved, after being consumed in the fire of Divine Love.
