THE TITLES WOULD BE SUSPENDED
Thought of the day !
A copy an paste from the the Book My Baba and I -- Dr. John Hislop
Page 71 and 72 -- Published 1985
As we live our days in practice of Baba’s divine teachings, he says we must learn to have confidence in our inner self and in our good common sense. Let us not find ourselves in the position illustrated by the plight of the reverent pastor of a church in the hill country. He had placed his life in God’s care. A great storm broke over the hill country.
Extraordinary heavy rains fell on the hill and valley, the river raised high beyond all limits and the pastor’s church was carried away in the flood. He found sanctuary for himself on the roof of the church.. First, a man on the shore cried out that he would save the pastor by throwing a rope to him. The pastor’s reply was, "No thanks. God is my saviour and God will save me"
Then two men came in a boat with the same offer and received the same reply. Later on, just before the final disaster, some people in the motor launch approached with the intention of saving he pastor, but he again gave the same reply. After the final disaster, the pastor appeared at the pearly gates of heaven to seek admittance, and he complained to the guardian angels that God had deserted him in his hour of need.
The angels, somewhat taken aback, replied, "But Pastor, we did send help to you, Right away we sent a man with a rope, and after that we sent two different boats !" In the same context, Baba once remarked, "First there must be common sense, then comes Divine Sense."
Baba’s advice as to how we may lead a spiritual life is revealed by him in clear words in his teachings. We need not yield to doubt and misunderstanding. Baba says in plain words how to conduct our lives, and he is ever available as the Inner Voice of conscience, if and when we are in trouble and doubt.
Sathya SAI is omnipresent !
