MAKE THE CIRCLE MOVE
Baba said, “Let us love and serve each other and be happy” in Sri Sai Satcharitra, Ch. XIX.
A couple visited an orphanage with a view to adopt a boy. As they went round, they found a ten-year-old boy who appealed to them greatly. They said to him, “We shall give you toys and story books and dresses, even a T.V.”
The boy did not seem interested.
Then they said to him, “Tell us what is it that you want?”
The little boy said, “I do not want toys or dresses or story books or a T.V. All I want is someone to love me.”
Is not this the hunger of every human heart, someone to love us? But this is the paradox of love, that you must love someone before you can receive love. The love that goes out of you to others returns to you. Love moves in a circle: and it is you who must make the circle move!
