EITHER LOVE OR LUST

Meher Baba

 
[At a private interview] a man presents a written statement — confessions of the confused state of his life, which makes him believe that he is fallen and utterly broken.

Baba: I know. No need to tell me, and I will explain. Don't worry. When one is meant for spiritual advancement, one has either love or lust to the extreme. This lust must be converted into love.

What is lust but a craving of the physical senses, and love is the craving of the soul. I know all about you and will spiritually help you. Never think that you have fallen so as not to rise again.
