This has been a fascinating experience, really. I have met some very nice people. Ross the Australian, Carol, Anne and Jim from the US, Paul from France. Paul in particular has taken a liking to me because he is flabbergasted that an American can speak French. He has given me some short films he has made about Baba and shown me around Baba’s home in Meherzad. Each of these people is trying very hard to help me see the light, but I continually disappoint them in my failure to be moved by Meher Baba (who by the way bears an uncanny resemblance to Gallagher, Paul Simon (circa 1970), Doug Henning, or Yanni.)
All the same signs of hero worship seem present in this community. I’m not bothered at all by what people believe, and these people seem for the most part very nice and not harmful, but I just can’t connect with that kind of idol worship. Everybody’s searching for a hero. People need someone to hold on to. I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs… hm…I could make a song out of this, it’s catchy.
