Jesus was never serious about anything, except about God, whose incarnation he was. He was serious about himself and God, with whom he was one. Otherwise, he was so lighthearted that he even got crucified for others, with the same lightness of heart. Why? Because he had no wants at all. He did not want, he gave. So the only thing that God wants is not ceremony, not yogas. He wants love, the love that makes you forget yourself in him.
Do you know that Jesus told his disciples, "Leave everything and follow me"?....So unless and until you are wholeheartedly prepared to follow someone who you think true, like Jesus, the best thing for you would be not to submit to anyone. Just go on following the inner voice. Can you surrender absolutely...? Just ask yourself. Be honest to the very core. If not, do not bother about it.-- Meher Baba; 16 May 1952; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
