I WANT YOU TO BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF

Meher Baba

 
Those who are confused
used or diffused are refused!
And with such people,
Baba is not amused!

Everything is happening according to the Divine Plan, and now it is going to be a test for God, the world, me and you.

Aurobindo is a political Hindu yogi of the sixth plane. He is a real advanced saint and a good soul, but not having realized God, he still thinks of politics and Mother India. He called Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Ramtirth "Avatars," and it would not have been surprising if he had called his political saintly friend Gandhi names or paid him tributes as suited him — from "Avatar" down to "political opportunist."

As for Gandhi, he was surely one of the greatest men of the world, and a saint because of his sufferings, sacrifices and love for the nation and love for God. But to call Gandhi an Avatar is emotional trash and sentimental nonsense!

One who always waited for the "inner voice" to guide him cannot be an Avatar, because the Avatar is "Voice" itself. One confessing to his Himalayan blunders and of being occasionally in darkness, weak and imperfect cannot be the Avatar. The Avatar is All-knowledge, All-power, All-bliss, All-perfection!

The truth of the situation is that Gandhi never claimed Avatarship for himself, not even sainthood; and this enhances his greatness all the more.

Even Jinnah (the leader of Pakistan) is considered by the Muslims as the savior of Islam. After his death — which is in the near future — he will also be acclaimed by the Muslim world as Imam Mehdi, the Muslim Avatar [True to Meher Baba's words, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, the political leader of Pakistan, died eight months later in 1948 — Bhau Kalchuri].

Therefore, in this Avatar business, if any of you really feel confused, excited and disappointed, you would be rendering me the greatest service by leaving me for good or bad. I want you to be honest with yourself and with me, because I am what I am, what I always was and will ever be.

Maybe I am Avatar of God or the Devil, So, once and for all, see within and find out if you are confused or fused.
