On the 13th of October, (1922) at ten-thirty in the morning, Baba sent for Adi and Ghani. He told them, “Be mentally free and happy.”
He then explained what he meant:
As the cause, so the effect; the cause may be big and important, or small and insignificant, but the result will definitely be according to it. The woes of this world are imaginary and are the self-created result of our own ignorance; having no cause, they are therefore unjustifiable. If there is no reason or cause, then it naturally follows that the result is unreal, insubstantial and meaningless.
So why worry about the happiness, or misery, of this world which has no cause behind it except imagination? Just go on observing things as a passive spectator as they go on around you, keeping the mind free and happy. As Hafiz says:
“Both the happinesses and sorrows
of the world will pass away.
So it is better to remain peaceful throughout.”
