DID THE FLY GO AWAY?

DID THE FLY GO AWAY?

Bill Le Page

Even on occasions when there was a sea of people moving around, talking, joyous at being with Baba, and Baba was just sitting there silently, each person would go away with the feeling that Baba had paid special attention to them, that there was something special between Baba and them.

As I have said, on this occasion there was a large group of His lovers, and Meher Baba was seated at one end of the hall. There was general singing, and at the far end of the hall, one of the lovers opened his mouth to join in. As he did so, a fly got in. He coughed it up and went on with the singing.

But after a while the lover suddenly became concerned: "Did the fly go away or did I swallow it?" A minute passed. He continued to be agitated. Baba, from the other end, suddenly gestured, "Don't worry. With My own eyes I saw the fly fly away!"
