ENDURE THE EXTRA PERIOD OF SEPARATION WITH A COURAGEOUS PATIENCE

Meher Baba

 
In March 1947, Meher Baba conveyed through a special message His decision to postpone His visit to the West. He called Elizabeth and Norina back to India after circulating this message to His dear ones in the West:

"The world is now drawing very close to the great upheaval.... This upheaval will entail great suffering to humanity, but this suffering will work a profound change of heart and will sweep the world clean for the new and vital phase that must follow....

"I know how patiently many of you who have not seen me for several years have been awaiting a reunion, and I know there are also many devoted souls who are eagerly looking forward to meeting me for the first time.

"I want all of you dear ones to endure the extra period of separation with a courageous patience and in spite of your disappointment, to continue and persevere in your present work and faith until I come.

"You must rest assured that I shall come and should always remember that in spite of this temporary separation from my physical presence, my real and infinite presence is eternally with you."
