LOVE AND LUST

Cyrus Daily Messages

(Sept. 1954) Adarsh Khare said, “I want such love whereby I can really see you.”

Baba replied, “For such love, my grace is required. If showered spontaneously and of my own accord, it is like nectar. If asked for, it is like plain water. If anyone insists on it, it proves like poison. So, just go on thinking of me, and leave everything to me. ‘Say, Baba, your will is my will.’ ”

Baba continued, “I will tell you something about lust and love. It has such a feeble link of demarcation that lust can be thought of as love, and love as lust; and yet, love takes you to God, and lust binds you in illusion. The sign of love is one: love never asks for anything. The lover gives all to the Beloved. Lust wants everything. Remember that one who wants nothing is never disappointed. He who wants nothing has everything.”

Baba reminded Raisaheb Ravindra Singh, “I am the slave of my lovers.”

To Raisaheb Ramashankar, Baba affectionately joked, “I like him because his heart is sound, his body is round and his love is all-round!”
