DIVINE LOVE AND THE PURPOSE OF LIFE

Meher Baba

 
Ordinary persons are caught up in the universe and its allurements, though the entire Universe is nothing but a shadow of God or Truth. The Masters are always immersed in the joy of Union with God and can never be caught up in the mazes of the illusory Universe.

Just as ordinarily we do not pay any attention to the shadows, so the Masters do not pay any attention to the Universe except to divert the attention of humanity from the shadow to the substance. The purpose of life is to realize our oneness with the infinite; this can be achieved through love for God.

Divine Love makes us true to ourselves and to others. It makes us live honestly, comprehending that God Himself is infinite Honesty. Divine Love is the solution to all our difficulties and problems. It frees us from every kind of binding. It makes us speak truly, think truly and act truly. It makes us feel one with the whole Universe.

Divine Love purifies our hearts and glorifies our being. I give you my love and blessings.
