REMAIN HONEST AT ALL COST AND UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES
If a person act dishonestly with us, if people create difficulties for us, if people deceive us, yet we remain honest, we are very fortunate, because these deceivers, or so called enemies are our friends. They wash of our weaknesses, our sins, and make our path clear toward God. They do not deceive us but they help us, and deceive themselves.-Meher Baba
“People die in all sorts of ways but it is nothing to be upset about; they are born again and again in different gross bodies. But during one’s lifetime, one should do whatever one honestly feels without getting attached to actions.”
The law of Karma is impartial and inexorable. It knows no concessions, gives no preferences, and makes no exceptions. It dispenses justice. By the divine law you are shielded from remembrance of past lives, for it would not help you in living your present life but would make it infinitely more complicated and confusing.
Spiritually speaking, according to the law of Evolution and karma, the none of the individual suffers, the more he benefits spiritually, for this is a means of helping him to emancipate himself from the bondage of Maya. Pleasure and pain, joy and sorrow, are but illusory experiences, like pleasant and unpleasant dreams. To be awakened from a dream it is sometimes necessary to have some disturbing factor. For example, in order to wake up from a happy dream, an experience of unhappiness in the ream may be helpful. Similarly in life, the opposite experiences of pleasure and pain, happiness and misery, compassion and cruelty are all essential factors in the development of consciousness, which is eventually transmuted into God-consciousness.
