NOT TO LEARN BUT TO BE AWAKENED
It immediately brought to my mind something Baba told us one evening just before the accident and made us repeat it a few times. It is the lines of an Urdu couplet by a mystic poet: "Understand well this Love is no joke; it is an Ocean of Fire in which you have to plunge deep and drown yourself."
The road of the mind is narrow, and for a dnyani (seeker) it is a long journey. The road of the heart, however, has no limits and it's the most direct to God. For the dnyani there are a thousand questions to all of which the bhakti (lover) has one answer and it is all-sufficient and satisfying.
Baba says, "I have come not to teach but to awaken;" but unfortunately only a few can say, "Baba, I have come not to learn but to be awakened."
