THE GLORIOUS SUNSET

Meher Baba

 
It was noon and we were walking and it was very hot and Baba gestured like this, "Do you feel the heat? It is very hot, isn't it?"

And I said, "Yes, Baba, I feel it."

Then Baba suddenly asked me, "Which is more glorious, the sunrise or the sunset?"

And I said, "The sunset, Baba."

Baba said, "Yes, it is so." Then He asked, "Do people ever come out to admire the sun when it is at its zenith?"

I said, "No, Baba."

Baba said, "People do not even see the sun then, they are not aware of it. They feel the heat, but they do not even look at the sun. It is only at sunrise and sunset that people glorify the sun."

And then He continued and said, "It is the same with My advent. When I am about to come, there is great anticipation. It is the sunrise. But then, when I come, now that I am in your midst, it is like the midday sun. But when I drop My body, that will be the glorious sunset and then all the world will become aware of My advent."
