Why does the stage of some children fluctuate as they move along?
Answer: Because they do not have firm faith. When faith is lacking, their stage
goes up and down like mercury and fluctuates. Sometimes there is a great deal
of happiness and sometimes happiness is reduced
Question: Why can you give the title of ‘ostrich’ to human beings
Answer: If you tell an ostrich to fly, it says, “I don’t have
wings, I am a camel.” If you say, “Achcha, if you are a camel,
carry the load!” it says “I am a bird.” Such is the state of
people of today! If you ask them, “Why do you call yourselves
Hindus instead of deities?” They say, “Deities were pure whereas
we are impure.” If you say to them, “Achcha, change
from impure to pure” they then say, “We don’t have time.” Maya has
cut off the wings of purity. This is why those who
say that they don’t have time are like ostriches. You children
must not be like ostriches.
