The man asked: If we give up all desires will we not be halting progress?

Shri Babaji Maharaj replied: “No, on the contrary when you cease to run after the things of the world, you will discover that success and progress will follow you! When you have no desires within you, your mind will always be at rest; and when your mind is at rest you can do greater work than otherwise, and prosperity is a natural consequence. The ocean remains content with its water–and the result is that all the rivers and streams flow down into it!

The man asked: But, Sir, if we give up all desires and cease to have a will of our own will that not make us like stone?

Shri Babaji Maharaj said: When you give up your own will, then the Will of God begins to act through you, and you do your tasks in the world with unfailing success. This is so because there is no mistake in His Will!
