TO WHATEVER PLACE Meher Baba would travel, and for whatever reason, he always did so for his inner work for the universe. He never stayed a moment longer than necessary in any place. No sooner was his work accomplished, he would immediately leave on one pretext or another, even though the place might seem very convenient and comfortable. Meher Baba and the mandali would camp beneath a tree or stay in a palace. But, wherever he traveled, it was only for his work; and as soon as the work was completed, no matter what his planned itinerary might be, he had to leave. Even if Meher Baba traveled to distant places, he would move on within a short time after his inner work was finished. Not one of his movements was without purpose. The mandali knew the Master was going somewhere for his work; but no one at the time could understand what inner or spiritual work he was doing, yet it was always being done to have an impact upon the whole world.
The mandali saw Meher Baba breathing but his every breath would touch all animate and inanimate things in creation. But who saw this? His Universal work is totally distinct; it was not for humanity alone but for the benefit of all beings and things in all universes! His prolonged fasts and seclusions were not for himself; he was, in his own way, inwardly worshiping the whole creation!
People worship God, and God in human form worships all life animate and inanimate. Meher Baba’s every breath was an offer of worship to the world, and his every action was his devotion to every object in creation. The Perfect One has nothing left to achieve. His universal life in the world is his dedication of sacrifice to those still imperfect.
