THE GREAT GIFT THE BESTOWAL OF MY LOVE
You have feeling for me in your hearts, and because of it you may remember me often during the day but you do not continuously. This feeling or devotion, though good, is not love. It should not be mistaken for love, because that real love which is to see and know God cannot be created. It has to be bestowed. It is bestowed through the grace of the Master, and such grace is conferred on a very, very lucky few.
Still, do not be discouraged. Although you do not have the love that is needed, you have deep feeling for me. Try always to remember me and to speak of me. This is the best beginning the determination to be ready to receive the Master's grace. If this continues, a day will come when you will be the lucky one to receive the great gift the bestowal of my love. To be ready, perpetuate this feeling in your heart and increase it, making it deeper and deeper.
How to begin? Remember me before starting and after finishing any work. Think of me before doing anything. If you have to write something, remember me before starting and then mentally say, "Baba, it is you, not I, who is writing."
