My avid mind

(32)  Ucatana mana na mane barana

My avid mind acknowledges no barriers—
It only wants to go toward Him.
Why oh why such a desire?

Pollen blanketing the earth, chirping in the bower,
The days of honey gone by—
With all the sweetness in my mind,
Still I lose myself in Him.

There were so many words, so many thoughts,
So many unvoiced wounds to my pride—
Today, with all that blending together,
Why do I still rush toward Him?

Baba's exposition:
There are so many charms, so many objects of fascination on this earth; but the accumulated force of all these sweet worldly attractions is far less than the attraction for Paramapuru┼Ťa. Before this supreme attraction all other worldly attractions fade. The mind wants a closer affinity to Him; and no charms, no attractions, no fascinations of this mundane world can create any obstacles on the path. Now there remains the eternal question: why is the cosmic attraction so powerful and irresistible? Why is the call of the Great so great?
