20130729 – Working methods of Baba

 

Baba continued, explaining about his own working:

There are three principal ways in which I work: individually, collectively with crowds for the masses, and universally. When I work individually, it is with persons who are with me, or persons who are away from me, or persons who are connected with me. In some […]

20130723 – Tried by psychological weakness

 

When Ivy Duce and her Sufi group had their interview in the Lagoon Cabin, Baba reiterated how they must hang on to his daaman, and how difficult it would be: “If six cobras came into this room suddenly from out there, would you just sit still here with me? No, you would be […]

20130722 – “You must stick as close as you can to me”

[On the occasion of Guru Purnima (the day of Guru, according to Hindu calender) today let us re-dedicate ourselves and hold fast to our Beloved’s Daaman]

 

While browsing through Bili Eaton’s archives, I came across this deeply meaningful paragraph in a letter that Meher Baba’s sister Mani S. Irani wrote to Bili on […]

20130715 – The need to control mind

Everything depends on the mind. The mind feeds on happiness and misery. The world is really a dream. Happiness and sorrow are plays of the mind; there is no substance in either. In fact, the mind exists to endeavor to see God, but it leaves this aside and becomes caught up in the world. […]

20130714 – Soul and spirit

On Sunday, December 11th, Meher Baba discoursed about reincarnation, explaining what spirit means:

The soul always remains the same; it is only the spirit which reincarnates and takes successive possession of bodies. People do not understand what spirit is and only vaguely use the term. There are so many terms used for one aspect.

20130712 – Worldly film show is unreal

Douglas Fairbanks joined his wife near Baba, who conveyed to him:

The whole universe and its structure, I have created. The universe is my cinema. But just as an audience becomes absorbed in witnessing a drama on the screen, and the film engages their emotions and sways their feelings by its influence, causing them […]

20130710 – “Things that are real are given and received in silence.”

“Things that are real are given and received in silence.”*

I speak eternally. The voice that is heard deep within the soul is my voice, the voice of inspiration, of intuition, of guidance. Through those who are receptive to this voice, I speak.

My outward silence is not […]

20130709 – “The breaking of my silence will help you to help yourself in knowing your real Self”

The world is now drawing very close to the great upheaval which must precede the breaking of my silence. This upheaval will entail great suffering to humanity, but this very suffering will work a profound change of heart, and will sweep the world clean for the new and vital phase that must follow.

20130708 – The problem of self-interest – Part 4 (Final)

The God-Man neither thinks nor desires. Through him, the divine will flows inevitably into perfect manifestation, passing directly from the spiritual body, which in the human is undeveloped, into physical expression. For him, the superconscious state is the normal state of consciousness. From him, there continuously flows infinite love and wisdom, infinite joy and […]

20130707 – The problem of self-interest – Part 3

Humanity, as constituted at present, uses three vehicles for the expression of thoughts, and experiences three states of consciousness. These three vehicles are: the mental body (the mind), in which thoughts arise as the result of impressions from past experiences. These thoughts may remain latent in the mental body as seeds, or they may […]
