LOVE FOR ME EXPECTS MUCH MORE THAN THIS, Part 3

GIFT OF LOVE FROM GOD

Meher Baba

 
Man cannot possess love by means of anything except the gift of one who possesses that Love. No sooner you are gifted with Love there is no duality. You can't bargain for Love. No amount of penance, meditation, pooja etc. Can give that gift of Love. Once that gift comes from God, it burns up all veils of Sanskaras.

HE ALONE KNOWS THE REAL MEANING OF LOVE
WHO RECEIVES THE GIFT OF LOVE FROM GOD.

That lover who so receives it cannot express it to others; his mouth is stitched and not even smokes out. No sooner love is visible and others can sense that he is a lover of God (e.g. by tears, japa, pooja, etc.) he is not the lover of God really. I tell you with My Authority.

The gift of Love knows no law. To love Baba for health, wealth etc., is not love for Baba, but love only for all those things.
