The Sacred Agony of the Divine Master

mudra-And when you realize that the Divine Master is in time with you, in a body, with you, burning away with you, then your heart breaks. There they are with you in the same dimension out of pure love, waiting for you to receive Pure Love, and your heart breaks. The Master said to the disciple, “What I have been doing is burning away, waiting for you to catch fire,” and that act of immense burning, that act of incessant, endless love, streams out towards the entire universe. It is the sacred act of the Divine Master, the sacred agony of the Divine Master, and when you come to understand that, you will be destroyed. There are minor destructions, but that is the real destruction.
