30 September 1980

Indifference reigns supreme in my life.

My body is indifferent
To the dynamic urge of my vital.

My vital is indifferent
To the deserving rest of my body.

My mind is indifferent
To the soulful cry of my heart.

My heart is indifferent
To the inquisitive quest of my mind.

My soul is indifferent
To the slow efforts, slower success
And slowest progress of my life.

Even my Beloved Supreme, it seems, is indifferent
To my supreme realisation.

Had He flooded my entire being
With His Concern Supreme,
I am sure I would not have been waiting
For millennia for my realisation.

Alas, alas, O my Beloved Supreme,
Do tell me why You are indifferent to me,
And why the rest of the members of my family
Are indifferent to one another.

“My sweet child, I am not indifferent to you.
Dive deep within and you will see
That Constant Concern is My only name.
And about your body, vital, mind, heart and soul,
I wish to tell you that they can be freed
From the fatal disease of indifference.

They can be cured of this fatal disease
Only by using the medicine: oneness-concern.
When oneness-concern plays its role within and
Satisfaction at every moment shall loom large
In the seeker’s life, in your life.
The indifference-flow will be found no-where.
Only the oneness-flow will be found all-where.
