Yeah, I guess you're right, Vaj. We're so lucky to have you here to shoot down our silly mood-making with your intimate knowledge of everything about MMY. After all, that's exactly how MMY himself has described his relationship with Guru Dev--he was just learning to be an efficient secretary: "It was in the deep functioning of my heart and mind, feeling and understanding, to just go in the direction he wanted me to go - this way or that way or that way or that way. Very precious activities sometimes I had to completely abandon because I thought his mind was going that way, and I adjusted myself to that and that. There was quite a period of tests, but somehow it happened that I just came through them all. Action I took as a means of communicating to him in order to be able to adjust to his thought - this way, this way. In very trifling things, this way, this way. So all the time adjusting to his feelings, thinking. "All that period of adjustment and readjustment and all the time this was the impulse of my life. On this I was living moving, breathing, eating, talking. All the time, every thought was in that--which way he wants? Which way he looks? What he likes? That was my direction, that was my thing--activity. I had to create an action to see his reaction, and when that was done, fine--I had to create the next action. Hardly he would ever have asked me to do anything. "I remember it took me about two and a half years to really adjust myself. Right from the beginning the whole purpose was to just breathe in his breath. This was my ideal. The whole purpose was just to attune myself with Guru Dev, and that was all that I wanted to do. "Fortunately it struck me that the only way to do this was to adjust my feelings with his feelings; how he thinks, what he wants me to do-- this, or this, or this--or he doesn't want me to do anything--but I want to move with his feelings. Whichever way he sees, I want to see that way; whichever way he wants to think, whatever, I want to think the same way. "And it took about two and a half years, and I thought two and a half years were wasted, but it came out to be quite early to adjust myself with his feelings. And the method that I adopted was just to sense what he wants at what time--what he wants. I picked up activity as a means to adjust to his thought, to his feelings. Something I would do, and that action was not so important for me. "The main thing was to see which way he wants me to go on that action. And whichever way I felt, I was going this way, maybe I took something to do and I was half way, and I was closely all the time watching which way he wants me to go. And I found he wants me to take a turn that way--I would immediately take a turn that way. "Just about two and a half years for my thoughts to be mainly flowing in tune with his--how much perfectly, there was no way to measure, but I knew I was making very, very rare mistakes; no mistakes almost. A"nd from there on for me the whole thing was very light and beautiful, no obstacles, clear, everything. Then I was living around him without even feeling that I was living. It's a very genuine feeling of complete oneness with Guru Dev, just like that. People who have seen me moving with Guru Dev know I was not as if in this isolated, single body or something. There was something of a universal value. "And what I did from my side was just on that first glimpse of the flashy light on him, the life was surrendered."
