You and Me
apologize for allowing ten eventful years to
pass by since placing Part III of
in your hands before doing the same with Part
IV, although Bhagavan has been keeping me alive
and attentive beyond my expectations. But since
I have never felt that I am the writer, I plead
'not guilty' and desist.
It has become
well-nigh impossible to keep pace with the
ever-expanding manifoldness of the manifestation
of Divinity that is Sai. That almighty Love
overwhelms us into blissful silence; the
all-encompassing Power makes us aware of our
inadequacies. Nevertheless, the Divinity in us
draws us to Him, even while He seeks us, the
straying as well as the steady one, to keep us
in His cosy custody.
describes to Arjuna those who had received the
impact of His grace, thus: "My sweetness has
soaked into every level of their consciousness.
They live in Me, by Me, for Me. They take
delight in narrating stories centred around My
sport and My compassion. They share with others
the love, the wisdom and the power I impart, and
all reap immense gain thereby."
I invite you
to participate in this holy sharing. Travel from
page to page as a pilgrim, with humility, faith
and hope, tarrying at every turn to fill your
hearts with visions of the many-turreted Citadel
of God and of God Himself. With each vision of
His glory, we shall gain nearness and dearness
to Him, who has come to accept us as His own
nearest and dearest.
(8) I am the source of all, from Me everything
emanates, thus knowing the intelligent ones with
love in their hearts become devoted to Me. (9)
With the full of their minds and lives set on
Me, they enlighten one another talking about Me
constantly and derive contentment and delight
therefrom. (10) To those who are always engaged
in the loving ecstasy of devotional service I
give that oneness of intelligence by which they
come to Me. (11) For them surely, to show
special mercy, I, situated in their hearts,
dispel the darkness born from ignorance with the
shining light of knowledge.
