22-DO NOT COPY MASTERS ACTION BUT DO WHAT HE TELLS YOU TO DO

Do not try with your limited mind to understand the significance of My actions, nor try to imitate them. You must not do what I do, but do what I tell you to do. To try to bring My every action within the orbit of your understanding is but to understand the limitations of your own understanding. The utter simplicity of My Divine Game appears to be highly intricate as soon as you try to understand it through your intellect

Relevant story narrated by Baba  

For relaxation Baba would go to Munshi Rahim’s house at Charni Road to play cards. In August 1922, once while Baba and the mandali were playing cards, Ghani stole a card just the way Baba would pilfer. Baba stopped the game and told the men a true storey about the Perfect Master.

One day, a Sadguru with some of His disciples to a city where He was known. He approached a candy shop and entering, put some sweets in His mouth. His disciples, too, mimicked Him in this respect. He then visited a bakery and there the same thing happened. He picked up some cookies and put them into His mouth, and the disciples did the same.

Then He went to a blacksmith’s shop where there were red-hot pieces of iron in the furnace. The Master picked up one and ate it. Disciples stared at Him. The Sadguru then said, “Now eat it too.”

Not one dared move and Master admonished, “Why did you do as I did? Are you parrots? Never do as I do, but do as I say.”

Relevant episode when Baba said Want what I want you to want.  

Deshmukh broached the subject of a certain young man he had chosen as a husband for his daughter, Sanjeevani. Baba replied, "I don't like it; he is not suitable."

Earnestly, Deshmukh rejoined, "Baba, the fellow is very good. He is educated and comes from a good family."

Seeing that Deshmukh had already settled things, Baba relented, "If that is the case, proceed with the matter and let the match be made."

Coming out of the hall, Deshmukh told others that Baba had given His approval and wished that his daughter marry the fellow. Overhearing this, Baba called him back and corrected him: "Is it I or you who wishes that Sanjeevani wed this fellow? Don't talk like that!

"Want what I want! Instead of wanting what I want, you want Me to want what you want. And when you succeed in getting Me to agree to what you want, you even tell others that it is what I want. You have not only made Me agree to what you have already made up your mind about, but you go and tell others, “Baba wants so-and-so and my daughter to marry. What nonsense!”

"It is impossible for you to want what I want as it is impossible for you to love Me as I ought to be loved. But at least do not always want to make Me want what you want. Hold on to Me and try to obey Me implicitly and fully in all I ask."
