FIRM FAITH IN CHRIST
How blessed you are to love and adore Christ! Do so with all the strength of your heart and soul without reservations and confusion. Let not the demon of dual concept of Baba and Christ ever stand in the way of your one-pointed devotion to Christ. Let there be no conflict in your heart howsoever your mind may want to create it. Let not your mental concept of Baba stand in the way of your wholehearted devotion to Christ. The instant your love for Christ is accepted by Him, know that you are accepted by Baba. Avatar Meher Baba and Jesus Christ are but forms and names of the same Ancient One.
At the height of your love for Him, the Grace of Christ will appease your thirst for intellectual certainty and bestow upon you the conviction you seek. Continue to love Christ all the more with the warmth of your heart. True, simple and unadulterated love for Him will make Him touch your heart and awaken it to recognise his present Advent. Force not your mind to do so, but allow your heart to work it out by His Grace. Meanwhile, pay heed to His ancient warning of which you are aware — "run not after false prophets, babas, and masters."
I salute your deep love for and firm faith in Christ. May your love for Him lead you to Him. He is compassionate. He is love.
