“No amount of prayer or meditation can do what helping others can do.”
Meher Baba
“There are very few things in the mind which eat up as much energy as worry. It is one of the most difficult things not to worry about anything. Worry is experienced when things go wrong, but in relation to past happenings it is idle merely to wish that they might have been otherwise. The frozen past is what it is, and no amount of worrying is going to make it other than what it has been. But the limited ego-mind identifies itself with its past, gets entangled with it and keeps alive the pangs of frustrated desires. Thus worry continues to grow into the mental life of man until the ego-mind is burdened by the past. Worry is also experienced in relation to the future when this future is expected to be disagreeable in some way. In this case it seeks to justify itself as a necessary part of the attempt to prepare for coping with the anticipated situations. But, things can never be helped merely by worrying. Besides, many of the things which are anticipated never turn up, or if they do occur, they turn out to be much more acceptable than they were expected to be. Worry is the product of feverish imagination working under the stimulus of desires. It is a living through of sufferings which are mostly our own creation. Worry has never done anyone any good, and it is very much worse than mere dissipation of psychic energy, for it substantially curtails the joy and fullness of life.”

“If I were to ask the famous Henry Ford to come over here and do what I tell him to do, would he do it? Never! But if I were to make a thousand-year-old corpse come alive before his eyes, he would jump at the chance to stay here and wash my clothes!”
Meher Baba
“About the New Life Meher Baba wrote:
This New Life is endless, and even after my physical death it will be kept alive by those who live the life of complete renunciation of falsehood, lies, hatred, anger, greed and lust; and who, to accomplish all this, do no lustful actions, do no harm to anyone, do no backbiting, do not seek material possessions or power, who accept no homage, neither covet honor nor shun disgrace, and fear no one and nothing; by those who rely wholly and solely on God, and who love God purely for the sake of loving; who believe in the lovers of God and in the reality of Manifestation, and yet do not expect any spiritual or material reward; who do not let go the hand of Truth, and who, without being upset by calamities, bravely and wholeheartedly face all hardships with one hundred percent cheerfulness, and give no importance to caste, creed and religious ceremonies. This New Life will live by itself eternally, even if there is no one to live it.”

“روح همانند مرغ و کالبد همانند قفس است. مرغ خارج از قفس آزاد است. لیکن قدر آن و اهمیت آزادی را نمی داند، زیرا زندان را ندیده و نمی شناسد و از استنباط آزادی بیرون از زندان محروم می باشد. با ورود به قفس و چشیدن رنج گرفتاری، چون آزاد گردد، ارزش آزادی و فضای خارج را درک می کند.”
Meher Baba, Life at Its Best
“مادام که انسان بشناخت حقیقت توفیق نیابد، هیچ بهتر از سنگ و جماد نیست.”

“اگرچه تبلیغ دین ازسوی پیغمبران، برای رهایی بشر از تنگناها و محدودیتهاست، لیکن خود دین، بواسطه عدم استنباط درست پیروان، بقفس و زندان تنگ و تاریک تغییر ماهیت داده است.”
Meher Baba, Life at Its Best
“رهروانی که با انجام مراسم و تشریفات دینی، بمنظور نیل به حقیقت به فعالیت ی پردازند، چنانست که برقطار کندرو سوار می شوند، قطاری که در هر دهکده و گذرگاهی ساعتها توقف کرده، و بدون برنامه در ایستگاه ها معطل می ماند. رهروانی که صمیمانه بتصور و مراقبه پرداخته و زندگانی خود را وقف خدمت مردم می سازند، چنانست که بر قطار عادی سوار می شوند، قطاری که طبق برنامه در کلیه ایستگاه ها مدتی معین توقف می نماید...”
Meher Baba, Life at Its Best
“جهان چون کودکستان و دبستانی است که مرد بایستی در آن بوسیله زندگانیهای بیشمار و کسب تجربیات از اضداد, چون رنج و شادی, درد و خوشی, خوبی و بدی, ثروت و فقر درسهای روحانی بیاموزد.”
Meher Baba, Life at Its Best
“What is politics but fraud? Whatever your own, honest, candid opinion might be, you have to act according to the creed of the party, [at times] against the voice of your conscience, and thus be dependent upon others for your actions, which is quite opposed to the fundamental principles of Truth.”
Meher Baba
