On the evening of May 14th, (1952) Baba asked them to tell him a story. Adele, feeling very nervous, stumbled her way through a story of Saint Peter.
At one point, Baba bent his head and stated, “Peter loved me the most – but even he denied me.”
Delia asked, “Was that a conscious act or did he do it unconsciously?”
“None [of the apostles] loved Jesus as Peter did,” Baba stated. “It had to be. It was God’s will. He was conscious. Afterwards he realized me.”
Delia said, “I always understood that Judas was unconscious when he betrayed Christ.”
Baba explained to her, “The greatest service was Judas’s betrayal. When he kissed Christ on the cheek, he did nothing. God did all. He behaved under a veil. He had the most difficult task to do for the Master of all the disciples.” Baba then indicated that Judas, too, had been given Realization.
Turning to Adele and Filis, Baba remarked, “Nothing matters but love for God. Masts have this love. One must drown in the lake of fire and come out unscathed to reach God.”
“Hundreds of years from now people will be talking about what we did here, what happened while the Master was here. And then I will come again – and again, and again – and so will you all!
“Filis and Adele do love me. You have been with me before. I have known you since ages; you do not know how long! Do not worry about anything. Only love more, and more, and more. Let these words be inscribed in your heart: ‘Nothing is real but God, nothing matters but love for God.’ ”
Baba pointed to his own heart as he stated this, and his fingers seemed to “write” it on the hearts of his lovers present.
