AN INCIDENT INVOLVING AGNES BARON
Near the end of Avatar Meher Baba's visit to Meher Mount on August 2, 1956, there was an incident involving Agnes Baron and another guest.
Agnes Baron was a co-founder of Meher Mount and the resident caretaker at that time.
Fuming, Agnes went to Meher Baba and said, "I don't love everybody - what am I going to do about it?"
YOU LOVE EVERYBODY, YOU JUST DON'T LIKE EVERYONE
Meher Baba looked at her and said (with His disciple Adi K. Irani translating Meher Baba's hand gestures), "Agnes, you love everybody, you just don't like everyone!"
In the car on the way back to Los Angeles from Meher Mount, Agnes said, "Baba, you know what [a follower of Meher Baba] said about me...I don't believe it. If it is true, what am I going to do about it?"
Meher Baba slapped her on the shoulder and said, "I like you the way you are. I like your spirit!"
