Jay Baba…….What a day? At 10 am the ‘old’ dining hall was full of His lovers, many ‘senior ones’ (who had been with Mani MANY years); to share their funny and wonderful stories with the incredible Manije! Two hours of humor, laughter and wisdom, ending with a video from her, telling some real funny story, about a play they have performed in front of Baba. Then with our wonderful ‘universal queen’, my ‘guest’ and me went to Nagar to attend an ‘engagement ceremony’, just outside the city…. Had a good time, typical ‘hot’ (for us!) Indian food for lunch and came back on time to hear Bhauji talk about Mani and ‘other stories’!
Good tea, no cake (strangely! Because usually there is some refreshment, but NOT on this Blessed DAY!) Met some new and familiar faces again and had a good music by Cindy Ji and Debbi Ji and Madhur sang a touching Jazz-Blues song with his guitar….
Went to use the washroom and my dear sister Debjani was working in her spacious office (an EX- 4 beds room!) She runs and manages a program for those who wish to offer their voluntary services for the family of Baba (Includes the WHOLE humanity, I suppose!) Filled out the form while Bhauji was talking (some of the stories I had heard before!) Was thinking to UPDATE my ‘services’ in my dedicated blog and might just do so, SOON! Will have to use/edit the ‘form’ she gave me this evening, to update it…..
So much piled up work waiting and new Yahoo messenger friends are added…. May Baba give enough energy to handle it.
Jay Baba…. this was written on the board in the dining hall in Hostel D….. Wish we can use it….
Meher Baba on Service
” A word that gives courage to a drooping heart,
or a smile that gives hope and cheers in the midst of gloom,
has as much a claim to be regarded as SERVICE,
as onerous sacrifices and heroic self-denial.”
Jay Baba… in reponse to the post titled ‘Friend or Enemy?’, i received a few + + responses, which mostly say ‘Baba is in lies and dirt’ as well! In theory it IS true, but what is the practical implication of such ‘slogans’?!…. So i wrote the following, as a general response and a specific PRACTICAL suggestion!
Jay Baba dear ALL
i find it amusing how some people can tell
what they have heard from Baba!
was as easy as ACTING
, this world would have been a better palce!)
Just for those who SAY ‘Baba is in OBL or GWB or SAKh or…..’ , (i name them but they say it in general terms!) i suggest that they look and find those people whom they do not like or dislike (or hate!) and find Baba in them…..
i AM doing it here and it is much FUN!
Jay Baba ALL…. i have stopped ‘criticising’ the people here….. did what i HAD TO….. NOW a new phase started in my life and i need to make my internal link with Babaji MORE and MORE strong…… busy with the renovation work at new home….. will write more later…… please write me by email if there is any questions……
Following is a piece of wisdom i just received from a dear Irani sister from USA. Enjoy it
I feared being alone until I learned to like myself.
I feared failure until I realized that I only fail when I don’t try.
I feared success until I realizedthat I had to tryin order to be happy with myself.
I feared people’s opinions until I learned thatpeople would have opinions about me anyway.
I feared rejection until I learned to have faith in myself.
I feared pain until I learned thatit’s necessary for growth.
I feared the truthuntil I saw the ugliness in lies.
I feared life until I experiencedits beauty.
I feared death until I realized that it’snot an end, but a beginning.
I feared my destiny, until I realized thatI had the power to changemy life.
I feared hate until I saw that itwas nothing more than ignorance.
I feared love until it touched my heart, making the darkness fadeinto endless sunny days.
I feared ridicule until I learned how to laugh at myself.
I feared growing old until I realized thatI gained wisdom every day.
I feared the future until I realized thatlife just kept getting better.
I feared the past until I realized thatit could no longer hurt me.
I feared the dark until I saw the beautyof the star light.
I feared the light until I learned that the truth would give me strength.
I feared change, until I saw that even the most beautiful butterfly had to undergo a metamorphosis before it could fly .Jamila

Jay Baba….this was sent by an Indian friend and for a ‘change of temperature’ is posted here!
Today I will delete from my diary two days:
yesterday and tomorrow
Yesterday was to learn
and tomorrow will be the consequence
of what I can do today.
Today I will face life with the conviction that this day will not ever return.
Today is the last opportunity I have to live intensely,
as no one can assure methat I will see tomorrow’s sunrise.
Today I will be brave enough not to let any opportunity pass me by,
my only alternative is to succeed.
Today I will invest
my most valuable resource:my time ,
in the most transcendental work:my life ;
I will spend each minutepassionately to make of today a differentand unique day in my life.
Today I will defy every obstacle that appears on my way trusting I will succeed.
Today I will resist pessimism and will conquer
the world with a smile, with the positive attitude
of expecting always the best.
Today I will make of every ordinary task a sublime expression,
Today I will have my feet on the ground
understanding reality and the stars’ gaze to invent my future.
Today I will take the time to be happy and will leave my footprints and my presence
in the hearts of others.
Today, I invite you to begin a new season where we can dream
that everything we undertake is possible and we fulfill it,
with joy and dignity.
SMILE Have a good day and a better one tomorrow!
HAVE A NICE DAY
“Karma is not something complicated or philosophical.
Karma means watching your body,
watching your mouth, and
watching your mind.
Trying to keep these three doors as pure as possible is the practice of karma.”
Lama Thubten Yeshe
from “The Bliss of Inner Fire”
Thanks to mickey “ô¿ô” …tuhlotteson…and dear ones in the ‘divine net’
Found this in my mails today…. Thanks to Baba who had always put me into such ‘struggles’, constantly!!! A new one is on the way!
“….. courage – moral courage,
the courage of one’s convictions,
the courage to see things through.
The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave.
It’s the age-old struggle –
the roar of the crowd on one side and the voice of your conscience on the other.”
Jay Baba….just receive this link from a dear brother in USA, whom i do not know, except that he is a teacher and very ‘precise’ in vision! it shows the image of a mouse neuron cell, next to the simulated image of our infinite universe! What a similarity in pattern! Thank him and Baba……….Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
At this sacle Jupiter is invisible and the Sun is only 1 pixel BIG!
Blow, you can see the Sun and the Jupiter is 1 pixel
The ‘mighty sun’ and our ‘VAST’ earth,5th dot from left.
Jay Baba….what a wonderful days, waiting , writing, reading, observing and communicating….. just got this wonderful link from my dear brother Darryl Smith, from USA and wanted to share it with you….. As they say in some ads, ‘size matters’! In reality, it is the ‘quality’ that ‘matters’, yet, when it comes to the ego, it wants to be the ‘biggEST’ or ‘THE most…’ So, to show how tiny we are in ‘size’, i bring the pictures below, which you can see them all here = http://www.rense.com/general72/size.htm….. (sorry, due to some technical problems here, i missed one picture and have the order in reverse!)(for the better picture, use the link!)
still i wonder how Baba and the ‘realized souls’ say that these ‘masses’ are ALL WITHIN us! it is ‘mind-blowing’ and ‘heart-provoking’! Enjoy the sizes in our universe….Jay Baba
our ‘little earth’ and imagine the billions BIG people living on it and compare to the size of the Antares, above! Wow………………………………Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
