THE AUTHORITY OF OUR HEARTS

Dr. Harry Kenmore

 
We talk about the doing things on the basis of the authority of the heart. This is laughable because the heart has no authority. Baba says there are millions of strangers in our hearts. "I cannot enter; I am too shy and reluctant."

Before you can claim authority of the heart you must remove the millions of strangers so Meher Baba can find room enough to occupy His palace and say, "This heart is Mine. It belongs to Me and not to the millions of false beloved strangers."

Your heart is totally without authority when strangers occupy it. Real, genuine authority of the heart is present only when Avatar Meher Baba can take up complete residence in it.

Only when He takes up active, awakened residence in our hearts does He become the Authority of our hearts. This can take place only when we've given up to Him in complete surrender.
