On April 25th, (1952) Baba answered questions, explaining various things, among them miracles: “Why should we produce petty imitation illusions in the already created mighty infinite illusion? Unless absolutely necessary for the spiritual purpose of a general collective drawing of mankind toward Self-Realization, miracles performed unnaturally or supernaturally can interfere with God’s ordained evolutionary process.”
“What about healing?” someone asked.
“Real healing is spiritual healing, whereby the soul, becoming free from desires, doubts and hallucinations, enjoys the eternal bliss of God. Untimely physical healing might retard the spiritual healing. If borne willingly, physical and mental suffering can make one worthy of receiving spiritual healing. Consider mental and physical suffering as gifts from God, which, if accepted gracefully, lead to everlasting happiness.”
Someone else inquired, “Will you break your silence during this trip to the West, Baba?”
Baba replied, “God has been everlastingly working in silence, unobserved, unheard, except by those who experience His Infinite Silence. If my silence cannot speak, of what avail would be speeches made by the tongue? The very moment when He thinks my speaking would be heard universally, God will make me break my silence.
“Most persons suffer because of their karma. A few suffer for others. Masters suffer for the whole universe.”
Baba ended by spelling out, “God is not to be learned or studied or discussed or argued about. He is to be contemplated, felt, loved and lived.
