(June 1953) In obedience, only one thought of acceptance remains. One willing to obey one hundred percent has no thought of one’s self, relations or of anything else for twenty-four hours a day, except the will of the Master. The Master’s order, his movement, his will or any other action of his are not like those of an ordinary person. To live such a life is really not practical because the Master has no “will” to express. The will of the Master is spontaneous. This “will” is something quite different, which a very, very few from among rare ones can satisfy for twenty-four hours. For such a hero, the Master’s words, indications and movements are, in fact, the Master’s will. If the Master does not speak with him, that too is the Master’s will.

If the Master orders one to cut someone’s throat, the rare one will unquestioningly, without even the thought of why, do it. Such a rare one is not concerned with the consequence of such an order but takes it only as his will. Others may also act accordingly, but in their hearts they have a thought that the Master’s order is a test for them, or that it is for their spiritual upliftment. Under such circumstances, there is no question of the will of the Master.

Those highly advanced in spiritual life never test anyone. They know whether the person concerned would do it or not. Therefore, the Perfect Ones have no “will.” When he himself (the Perfect Master) is in everyone, his work itself is his will. Those who are mindful of it, their every word, their every action is their Master’s will. But to live up to that standard, that degree of submission, is impossible.

Obedience to the Master’s will should not be mechanical, because it will then be monotonous, dry and uninteresting. Not only should it not be mechanical, but no thought of self at all, even for a second, should be there. How could these things be achieved? That is: it should not be mechanical and, secondly, no thought of self should be there. It is almost impossible, so what the disciple has to do is to consciously become the very will of the Master.
