WHATEVER I DO,
I DO FOR MY WORK
It is good for mankind, rather essential, to adhere to
religious and moral principles and observe religious
bindings; but for the spiritual path, they are unnecessary.
I am beyond all principles, bindings, laws and matters
pertaining to worldly duties. I am perfect and there is
no restraint or binding for me. I have broken all barriers
and I have gone beyond all laws!
According to the moral code of the world, one's word or
promise is considered by mankind to be sacred. But he
who has gone beyond time, space, cause and effect is
not limited by anything. For him, there is no such thing
as bondage. The infinite cannot be bound by anything
finite, however sublime the aim may be. This means that
one cannot limit the limitless.
For this reason and without your asking, I give you
promises and your aim will be fulfilled at the proper time.
But I also know that a promise can be a time-serving
device. It is not meant for fulfillment, but necessitated by
circumstances. It is a demand of the situation and so I do
not care for its resultant reaction.
Therefore, I do not worry about the world's criticism, or
its terrible slander and harm to my work, for not keeping
my promise. I purposely create and court such opposing
reactions and nurture them. Such an opposition is
required for my work to give it a great punch. I am
beyond praise and slander, and they do not affect me in
All those who care for name and fame and worldly
success, fearing criticism and scandal, are only ordinary
human beings. They want to preserve their prestige at
any cost. Their "name" alone matters to them above
money, life and everything else.
I am the Truth. No amount of voluminous praise will
raise me higher, nor can any carping criticism pull me
down. I am what I am and will ever be so. Whatever I
do, I do for my work, which encompasses and sees to
the welfare of all.
