(Feb. 1958) The affairs of the universe will continue without my paying any special attention to them, and without there being any burden on the Creator. The subject of discourses and explanations is a headache to me. One’s breathing is natural and one has not to pay any attention to it, but after some exertion, the mind becomes conscious of it. In the same way, the affairs of the universe go on without my paying any special attention to them. But when it comes to the matter of giving explanations, I feel like one who has climbed a steep mountain and becomes breathless. Discoursing is a burden for me. It reminds me of the affairs of the universe, and the discussions and explanations that are included in the affairs of the universe become more of a burden to me. Playing marbles, flying kites and playing gilli-danda and cricket are also included in the affairs of the universe, but they unburden the burden. It is like coming down a hill; it is more a relaxation than an exertion.
Elcha and Dhake, by their jokes and witticisms, lighten this burden and I relax. These are the things that give me relaxation. But, whether burdened or relaxed, I play my role equally well. Burden or relaxation makes no difference to me, for I am beyond all this.
