WHERE GOD AND HIS LAWS ARE CONCERNED
40TH BIRTHDAY MESSAGE TO SAIDAPET ASHRAM
Madras, February 18th, 1934
(Read by Mr. Rustom K. Sarosh Irani in Shri Meher Baba's Presence)
The reason of my coming here all the way from one end of the country
to the other to participate personally in your celebrations is your
Love that has irresistibly drawn me to you. Love is a mighty force.
It not only enables one to put the ideal of selfless service into
practice, but would transform one into God.
With Love one can follow any of the yogas most suitable to his or her
temperament. It will enable an aspirant to follow the rigid principles
underlying the spiritual path, and where and when necessary makes him turn
his back to the worldly pleasures for the sake of union with the Beloved.
Where there is Love there is Oneness, and there can be no question of any
particular religion or caste or system, superiority or inferiority and
touchability or untouchability. That these distinctions are not real has
been proved in a way by the recent earthquake tragedy.
The earthquake in Bihar was simply a manifestation of one of the laws of
nature. And that disaster spared none, rich or poor, high or low,
belonging to this religion or that. It was not divine wrath. It is an
eye-opener to the fact that where God and His laws are concerned there is
no question of caste, creed or country.
But to realize this natural equality permanently one has to submit to the
greatest law of God, which is Love. It holds the key to all problems
inasmuch as, under this law, the Infinite is realized completely at all
times in every walk of life, be it science, art, religion, or beauty.
May the world realize this highest aspect of Divinity more and more.
